Honeymooners: Venice

11/13/2013

Newlyweds.
High tide. 
There's no place like Venice.
Waiting for our Bellinis.
Returning to the same spot my parents visited on their honeymoon.
Still not used to seeing a ring on that finger!

We should have our wedding photos any day now (!!!), but I thought I'd share some honeymoon photos in the meantime. I'd been to Venice once before, with a group of girlfriends while studying abroad, and remember thinking at the time that this would be the ideal honeymoon spot. I was right.

Venice was our first stop on our Italian honeymoon. We woke up early our first and only full day and strolled the canals for hours, stopping for bellinis at the famous Harry's Bar, browsing the Rialto Market, enjoying beers in St. Mark's Square, and looking at our ring fingers remembering we were officially married. We splurged on massages at the hotel spa before a sunset gondola ride and dinner (the most amazing ravioli). Such a perfect day. Stay tuned for photos from Radda in Chianti next week, and see more photos, after the jump.
