I had the pleasure of capturing preparations for a wedding at Borgo La Bagnaia, the Tuscan five star resort where my husband Fred supervised the construction of an RTJII championship golf course. This woman appeared to be in charge of setting up for the event. Here she's dropping rose petals along a path. In the distance is Siena, the heart of Tuscany.
