One couple invites their guests to a glamorous destination wedding in the Italian town of Siracusa, Sicily, with a traditional cathedral ceremony and reception at an ancient castle.

Pei Pei Chan and Christian Mirabella of Washington, D.C., are an international couple with a passion for travel. So what better way to celebrate than with a romantic destination wedding—in a 12th-century Italian castle, to boot? On June 22, 2012, the couple tied the knot in the groom's small island hometown of Siracusa, Sicily.

"I'm Chinese-American, and he's Italian," Pei Pei says. "We wanted an international wedding, and Sicily is so romantic. We got married at the Cathedral of Siracusa, the most important church in the city. The reception was at Azienda Agricola Pupillo, a vineyard owned by Christian's friends, which has a castle on the grounds."
