Paul and model Darya were married at the stunning Villa Aurelia perched on the Gianiculum Hill overlooking the city of Rome. This 17th Century villa previously belonging to Pope Paul III, and bequeathed to the American Academy in Rome in the early 20th Century, has a rich history. Villa Aurelia is considered one of the most suggestive and beautiful properties in Rome and the perfect setting for a refined and stylish wedding celebration. Following their wedding ceremony in the Villa’s beautiful Italian Garden and photographs in the Lemon Garden and courtyard, the couple and their guests enjoyed aperitifs on the Villa’s terrace before dining in the magnificent Music Room. After dinner entertainment was offered in the fabulous Sala Aurelia where a show was given by an illusionist and an artist who captured a Darya’s likeness on a huge canvas. Following the cake cutting and first dance, guests danced to the music of a live band.
