Wedding on Lake Garda || Anton and Yulia
The lakes of the north of Italy: Garda, Como, Maggiore – are among the most beautiful sites for a wedding in the country. Here cliffy mountains meet emerald calm and pure waters of the lake and spacious, serene parks and gardens in blossom are mingled with the fuss of the small town. Popular tourist trails and solitary historic villas and palaces integrate in the same scenery. The wedding of Yulia and Anton took place at Lake Garda, in a small town called Gardone Riviera.
The couple had chosen an elegant Villa Fiordaliso. It’s a hotel that stands on the lake shore and is embosomed in the garden. Mussolin’s lover Clara Petacci lived here for some time, so the tokens of that time are present everywhere: 2 rooms out of the total of 5 that the hotel possesses, are furnished with antiques furniture. One of these 2 rooms witnessed the preparations of the bride and groom. We were enjoying the wonderful view of the lake and the tower Torre di San Marco from a venetian style window of the villa. And for the party we walked down to the hotel restaurant that boasts a Michelin star.
The ceremony took place in the municipal house, and during our stroll with the guests we visited Vittoriale, the house museum of an Italian classic Gabriele D’Annunzio and the island of Garda. It was one of the members of Cavazza family who showed us around. The island is private property of the 3 sisters and 4 brothers of this family, and it’s open for visiting.
