Ali is from California, and Dirk is from Germany. By some twist of fate, the pair met on their very first day of class while studying abroad in Dublin. They fell in love exploring the world together, so it only made sense to tie the knot in a place as breathtaking as Il Casale del Marchese.
The day before Ali and Dirk tied the knot in Tuscany, we decided to wake up at the crack of dawn for a little adventure. With sleepy eyes, we all piled into the car at 6:30 AM to catch the beautiful morning light. As we drove south toward the town of Pienza, we watched the sun slowly rise over the rolling fields, coloring the landscape with a golden glow.
