Our very own meet-cute with Annie and Allan happened during their two week honeymoon in Italy where they meandered in wedded bliss from the cypress studded hills of Tuscany to the fishing harbors of Portofino to the scenic cluster of lake villages at the foothills of the Alps. We first met them during an al fresco dinner at Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco and learned our paths would cross again in the coming week in the Lombardy region. A newlywed session on a classic wooden Riva boat at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo was in order! While we faced the curveball of heavy rains, flooded roads, cancelled boat transport and a deluge of mountain debris crossing the border from Switzerland, the Italian spirit of embracing life as it comes was the cornerstone of the day. And sure enough, a brief pocket of sun finally opened up for this sweet couple! Ultimately, the Lake Como bride and groom portrait session in the gallery below was brought to life, forever encapsulating the joy, romance and laughter of this delightfully unexpected and incredibly rewarding day.
