Halloween Elopement in Italy: Megan + Donny

Today on our countdown to 2021 we’re heading to Italy for an amazing and unique elopement. Megan and Donny opted to embrace their dark sides and elope while they were in town for a comic fair. They said their I do’s on Halloween night and were joined by a handful of guests.

Here are some words from their photographer about their day:

“This is the romantic story of the intimate wedding in Italy of two artists, he was a brilliant comics writer, she was a fascinating and talented Marvel comics drawer with dark arts appetite. They chose to get married in a beautiful Tuscan city on a melancholy October evening. That evening the streets were very crowded due to an international comic fair that was taking place in those days and which saw them as guests as prominent artists in the comics sector.

While outside the people and the cosplayers poured along the cobbled streets of the city, Donny was putting his thoughts together overlooking the terrace of Palazzo Rocchi, from up there he could see all of Piazza di San Michele, including the mighty bell tower of the Cathedral.

The dark bronze bells tolled at 5 pm when the sky began to turn in an enchanting pink color,  Donny covered his face to hide the thrill of seeing Megan in her beautiful dress. As a white cat she reached him on the highest terrace of the city and as the rain began to to make the streets and the lamps shine in the dark light of the sunset, they swore eternal love each other.”
