Vatican City served as a stunning backdrop for Melissa Allen and Adam Koehler’s nuptials on September 24, 2018. The couple tied the knot four years after they had their first date at Sotto, where they discussed their shared love for world travel and even planned a trip abroad to Barcelona and Ibiza.
The couple hosted their reception at their favorite Roman restaurant, La Buca di Ripetta, where they first discussed marrying at St. Peter’s Basilica. Afterward, the couple and their guests celebrated at an evening rooftop party at Le Méridien Visconti Rome. For their honeymoon, the couple commemorated their special trip to Spain by revisiting Barcelona.
The bride owns a spa, and the groom is a self-described “serial entrepreneur.” The happy couple currently lives in Mt. Auburn.
