When Andy and Ella approached us to organize their wedding celebration, their main wish was to have as much space as possible to walk and the Italian sun. Naturally, such conditions provide for an open wedding.
We had limited choice as the guys contacted us quite late and most of the locations were booked.
But over time, a villa came to my mind, which we visited in July and were delighted with. Luckily for us, she was free.
Villa Porta is a small, welcoming hotel located in the ancient town of Luino on Lake Maggiore.
Luino is located between Italy and Switzerland. A heavenly place, shrouded in secrets, as the inhabitants themselves call it.
Villa Porta has a large area, with a park and many small paths that cut through green and fragrant gardens and a breathtaking view of the lake.Ella chose an airy dress with a slight sheen from HoneyMoonSposa and jewelry from DellaBellaGioielli for her celebration.
On the day of the wedding, the bright scorching sun smiled at us. The weather was beautiful.
The ceremony was organized on a panoramic terrace overlooking the lake at 270 degrees. The decoration for the ceremony was chosen in a white-green palette, the rest of the decor was decorated with light autumn colors.
The bride appeared before the guests on the most beautiful representative of Italian chic - the red Ferrari by VagueLuxuryRent.
The surprises didn't end there. They continued until the very end of Andy and Ella's wedding.
Because this couple was so harmonious that we never ceased to admire them.
The ceremony was dazzling, from the glare of the sun, the reflection in the lake, the dress of the bride, and the glowing faces of the bride and groom.
