Lake Como Wedding
Lake Como is an ideal wedding location, if we may say so ourselves. The views are breathtaking—the lake itself (one of the largest in Italy), the hillside villas, and the sheer beauty of nature contribute to an elegant yet intimate atmosphere. Couples can’t help but get a sense of history and timelessness against the backdrop of the spectacular views. Lake Como enjoys very good weather for many months in the year, guaranteeing that Pavel and Cristina’s wedding and reception photos were beautifully bathed in sunlight.
This gorgeous couple chose Cantù as the place to get ready for the most important day of their lives. A city and comune in Como, Cantù is at the heart of the Brianza zone of Lombardy. It is home to the famous Basilica di San Vincenzo, which dates back to the year 1007. How’s that for getting a sense of history?
The groom got ready surrounded by his closest friends, who were only too happy to share important moments with him before the ceremony. You can see how excited the bride and her friends were as she got dressed for the wedding. And you can imagine how thrilled we were to capture the unforgettable moment when she slipped on her beautiful wedding gown and held her bouquet in her hands.
Chiesa Ortodossa Santi Apostoli Pietro e Paolo
True to the bride and groom’s roots, the wedding ceremony itself was held at the Orthodox Church of Como, which is under the Patronage of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul. We are sure that the loving couple will receive a double blessing of happiness and prosperity. The Church opened its arms in a big welcome to Pavel and Cristina and their family and friends on their day of days.
We captured the simple yet elegant ceremony when Pavel and Cristina became man and wife. Our favorite part was when he swept her up in his arms outside the church doors, to the good wishes and congratulations of the people nearest and dearest to them.
The married couple reception was held at La Rizulin, a restaurant also known as “the Little Curl” due to its innovative architectural design that forms a rippling wave. Set in the midst of a well-kept park, this elegant venue was the perfect place to continue the celebration.
And what a celebration it was indeed! The couple entered under an arch of flowers held up by their friends, and everyone spent a lovely evening dancing and rejoicing.
We wish Pavel and Cristina every happiness in the world as they begin this new part of their lives together! It was an honor to be part of their special day.
