Tuscany, Italy

The location: Perched on a hilltop in the Tuscan countryside, Castello di Vicarello is a 12th- century castle reborn into a luxury boutique hotel.

Wedding “wow” factor: A wedding under the Tuscan sun on the estate of a medieval castle sounds like a fairytale, right? But it’s all real -- the view of the rolling Tuscan hills and Cyprus trees, the estate’s gardens filled with fragrant rosemary and lavender and the working vineyard and olive groves. A perfect wedding spot for foodies and wine lovers, Castello di Vicarello grows much of its food on the grounds and everything is cultivated with traditional Tuscan methods. And wedding guests can toast to your happily-ever-after with the organic red wines produced from grapes straight from the estate’s vineyards.
