Isa Mass and Maximilian Sapetti found love on the dance floor. They met in their hometown of Modena, Italy while dancing with friends. When they locked eyes from across the room, they knew they had a special connection, and a year from that day Max popped the question. Isa shares, “We never saw each other before that night, but we both grew up in Modena, our houses are a five minutes from each other, we went to the same schools and have many friends in common. What a better place for our engagement than our beloved little city?” Even though it was a bit cold and cloudy on the day of their e-session, the couple braved the weather with their photographer Mariela Care of Bob Care Photography. Their photo shoot took them from the romantic 18th century gardens and famous arcades in Modena, to Verona City, a place that inspired Shakespeare. We wish this charming couple all of the best on their upcoming double weddings. One will be in Modena with family and friends, and a second will be just the two of them on the beach in Islamorada, Florida. How romantic!
How They Met
From Isa: We met in the city were we both born, Modena one day we decided to spend the night dancing with friends. Our eyes joined together many times that night and we soon started dating. One year from that day Max popped the question and I said, “Yes!” after a romantic weekend in the mountains. We never saw each other before that night, but we both grew up in Modena, our houses are a five minutes from each other, we went to the same schools and have many friends in common. What a better place for our engagement than our beloved little city?
The Engagement Session
The day was cold and cloudy, but for the happiness of our photographer Mariela Care, a dear friend of mine, and we had a lot of fun trying to warm each other and then running to the next place, from the romantic 18th century’s gardens to the famous arcades in the center of the city. The colors of a unusually warm winter were really similar to the autumn ones and we choose Earth colors for our outfits, to be natural and feel really part of the soft background, our second location was Verona city, the place that inspired Shakespeare.
Looking Forward to the Wedding
Because we love to travel together, we decided to have a double wedding: the first one in Modena, with all the friends and family members to celebrate again, me and Max alone, in a beautiful beach in Islamorada Florida, one of the Keys Islands, that will be our first international trip together, we are so excited for this, and for all the wedding preparations. For me, choosing my wedding dress will be an occasion to spend happy moments with the women of my family and my best girlfriends.
