The ceremony was held outdoors with the natural backdrop of Lake Como. For the reception, the couple chatted the night away during a luxurious candlelit reception. Bianca looked absolutely stunning in her Hermione de Paula gown. Her look was both classic and fashion-forward but with a hint of sophistication. The first dress hugged her silhouette perfectly, while the floral embroidery intertwined wonderfully with the lush garden setting where they sipped champagne from their champagne tower.
The second dress was truly breathtaking. Inspired by Kadō, an ancient Japanese art of flower arranging. The traditional essence of the gown was perfectly exemplified in our photoshoot as Bianca ran through the gardens. Such a beautiful tribute to this timeless art and it felt like we’d stepped back in time.
The day ended on an unforgettable note with a sunset cruise across the picturesque waters of Lake Como. Aboard the iconic vintage Riva classic Italian boat, we marveled at the beauty of Villa Sola Cabiati and other nearby villas. As their Villa Sola Cabiati wedding photographer, I was grateful for the opportunity to capture these extraordinary moments. This wedding elopement will remain a vivid memory for years to come.
