For their romantic Rome nuptials, Anna and Victor dubbed their wedding site "Rome Camp" and treated guests to a weeklong hippie-style celebration.

In the days leading up to the wedding, the couple balanced hiring bartenders with checking guests into rooms and plotting dance floor plans with checking toilet paper stores in bathrooms. As guests filtered in from abroad, the wedding site was dubbed Rome Camp, and impromptu parties and potlucks and movie screenings erupted on the grounds. "The whole week was like some strange hippie cult had descended upon this one grassy knoll in the middle of Rome," Anna says. "There was always a circle of people talking on the grass, whether it was 2 p.m., 2 a.m., whenever."
