The image on the opposite page was shot at the Cà d’Zan Mansion, a Mediterranean Revival residence in Sarasota, Florida, and the winter home of the American circus owner, developer and art collector John Ringling and his wife, Mable. Says Tucci: “The bride had paid a special fee to go into the tower at the top, but it was a bust because it was 40 degrees out (cold for Floridians) and there were 30 mile-per-hour winds. This was my favorite shot from that expedition. In fact, we were about to leave and were going to the ceremony, so this is a grab shot as we were making our way down the stairs. Luckily, the sun was setting and it was magical. As a wedding photographer, you must always be on the look out for these gems.”
