[W] – Ron + Julie – Italy Wedding

All I can say is WOW! What an incredible week with an incredible group of people. I had a blast at Julie and Ron’s Wedding. Actually not just the wedding but the entire week. A Plane, two trains and a boat ride later I was in Lago Di Como! What a treck that was but, when I arrived it was absolutely worth it. Lago di Como (Lake Como) is made up of many towns including Como, Lenno, Bellagio, Menaggio, Varenna… Day one, I went exploring solo. I went everywhere saw everything and loved EVERY minute of it. And yes, I did see Mr. Clooney’s villa as well as Richard Branson’s villa.
Day Two was the welcome Dinner. How much fun was that. It was a fantastic event followed by fireworks.
Sunday was more sightseeing with new friends see below.
Monday, the main event. It was simply breathtaking. Ron and Julie looked spectacular. The ceremony and reception were held at the Villa Balbianello. It was an intimate elegant affair. (For all you James Bond Casino Royale Fans, there were actual scenes filmed at the villa the wedding was hosted at.) Also, Ron and Julie arranged for all of their guests to go on a short boat tour around lago di como to Bellagio, Villa Corletta, The Villa Cipressi. It did storm but it created for an amazing ambiance. (Not mention it brought the hot temperatures down for the reception).
Tuesday Julie, Ron and myself went in and around Lenno for a day after shoot. In fact Julie was so daring to go part way into the water with her dress. It was great!
Overall, a beautiful wedding, at a place most will only dream of visiting but Julie and Ron made it a reality for their family and friends.
So without further ado. Enjoy the pictures and great moments below!
