As 2016 winds down, we’re cleaning out our files at the Minneapolis office of Junk Bonanza! The post about Event Manager Krista Belle Mickelson‘s July wedding in Tuscany has been unintentionally languishing in the drafts folder!
So before the year is up, here are a few long-promised shots in the beautiful area of Pienza, about two and a half hours north of Rome!
Ki’s morning blood orange juice and coffee on her hotel room balcony!
A partial JB team shot at the rehearsal dinner in Pienza — Staffers Taylor and Alexis were two of Krista Belle’s bridesmaids, and Ki was a reader!
Day-tripping in Montalcino!
Our junking hearts were entranced with the architecture!
The libations weren’t bad, either!
The potted hydrangeas were super-sized!
Reclaim wood was everywhere — we loved this bar! Another, in our hotel, was made from wine barrel staves!
Krista Belle’s wedding was sunny and beautiful, high atop a hill.
All smiles, no nerves!
Meet Krista Belle (Mrs. Jonathan) Bancroft!
Olive branches were everywhere…
… including in the chandeliers!
Ki was happy to share Krista Belle’s wedding not only with her Bonanza family, but with her kids and their spouses, too! The Tuscan sojourn was a Bonanza staff highlight in 2016.
We can’t wait to see what 2017 brings –now only about seven hours away!
