Inspiration – Destination Wedding in Italy

Elegant Elopement Wedding at Lake Como

I can hardly find words that describe this unique wedding inspiration shoot in a historic villa right by Lake Como in Italy.

The whole day was full of beauty, romance, and the charming, elegant atmosphere of Italy.
When we woke up in the morning in the Villa Regina Teodolinda, the first rays of sunlight were already shining through the window, and Lake Como showed itself from its most beautiful side. We used the special mood of the morning to take romantic boudoir photos of the bride.
While Anastasia was getting ready, the groom, Andrea, arrived at the villa by boat.
The pictures of their First Look reminds me so much of Romeo and Juliet. When Anastasia came down the Italian villa’s stairs in her golden wedding dress from Emily Riggs, all eyes were on her.

The talented florist Christine Cater has created a wedding decoration that couldn’t have been more beautiful. The ceremony location for the wedding on Lake Como was really unique and just perfect for this wedding. Right next to the lake, with the mountains in the background, the two said yes to each other.
Look at the pictures yourself and let them inspire you…
