On a beautiful afternoon, in a castle on top of a hill far, far away in the medieval town of Serre di Rapolano in Italy, Dolores and Martin tied the knot.

The groom actually entered the venue to the song from the movie The Rock, and saw his bride in her bridal gown for the first time when she walked down the aisle. Dolores shed tears of joy when she met Martin at the altar, and the exchanging of vows was very emotional.

At sunset, the tables for the wedding reception were beautifully set for dinner, and the place slowly began to fill with family and friends, laughter and love. It was, quite simply, perfect.
