So Paige and Victor began scouting properties. With their main focus on castles, hotels, and a few villas, they knew Il Borro would be the site of their wedding even before they got out of the car. The long driveway lined with cypress trees and perfectly formed lavender bushes felt magical. Horses came running to the fence to greet the couple, and the air was filled with the aroma of olives ripening and grapes being crafted into fine wine.
The estate covers approximately 1,750 acres of Tuscan countryside. In a lush green valley surrounded by the Pratomagno mountains, it features a stone footbridge, a tiny old church, several farmhouses, tennis courts, a driving range, and a series of little apartments where the guests would stay. The main villa atop the hill -- formerly the home of the Ferragamo family -- combines rustic and historic elements with luxurious, modern updates and elegance all around.
