Imagine May, imagine blue skies, imagine turquoise waters and imagine the warm Italian sun, olive and lemon trees… It was the perfect setting for Avo and Ashley’s dream wedding in Lake Garda.
They had chosen Italy for their Italian roots and had just fallen in love with Lake Garda and the charms of Sirmione, a stunning town on the south of Lake Garda. They had flown from Canada with their closest friends and family and although there were nerves, they were over the moon to finally arrive at the day that we had all (well mainly me!) been planning for… their wedding in Lake Garda.
Ashley wanted crisp whites and greens and had chosen peonies and lily of the valley (a family tradition) for the bouquet and ceremony decorations and she wasn’t disappointed by the florists work.
A natural beauty anyway, that day Ashley was breathtakingly beautiful with a little help from Samantha Pretto, her make up artist.
The scene was set, the guests were seated, the musicians were gently playing and we all eagerly awaited the brides entrance.
Once the ceremony was over, the happy couple and their guests enjoyed fresh red berry cocktails, aperol spritz and an Italian aperitivo in the gardens whilst taking instant snaps to remind them of these moments for years to come.
They dined with a beautiful sunset in elegant surroundings and it was the perfect time to relax and of course eat.
As night drew in, we made our way down to the lake side,for music and dancing, but not before cutting their cake and watching the sky filled with fireworks to celebrate the start of their married life together.
Congratulations to Avo and Ashley and thanks to Alberto and Alessandra for capturing so perfectly their wonderful day.
