Halfway around the globe, this couple traveled for a beautiful and scenic elopement in Italy. Spending the weekend at a winery villa with photo destinations in Lake Como, this was a destination to remember!

from the photographer: “Siobhan and Craig traveled from Canada to Italy for their elopement. They book the most beautiful villa at Montechiaro Winery in Sienna to spend the weekend in. Although the wedding day was rainy, it stopped long enough for them to exchange their vows under beautiful wisteria. After their ceremony, they went back to the villa to spend a quiet evening alone. We traveled to Lake Como and the weather was so beautiful that the couple decided to get dressed up again and take photos at Villa Monastero at sunset. The spent the rest of their honeymoon touring around Italy as newlyweds”

from the couple: “Our Italian elopement was truly everything we wanted and more. We were seeking a destination that held a unique significance for us—a place we could return to on future anniversaries. We visited Siena last year and happened across a vintage shop called Aloe & Wolf. The woman there told us she knew of a dainty daisy dress they might still have available if I could return the next day. So we did, and I got to try the dress on in a secondary location in between the rows and rows of vintage clothes, no change room. Within a minute of having the dress on I knew it was the one! Returning this year for our elopement trip felt so surreal, everything was going perfectly until we saw the forecast. Knowing our wedding date would include rain, we were able to get creative (traveling with your photographer is a major plus!) and did a stunning garden shoot in Lake Como. At our XIII Century Tower Villa we were in awe of the wisteria arch in full bloom. It was pure magic underneath, reciting our vows, while the light rain added to the charm of the Tuscan countryside. We treasured the simplicity of being present, savoring every moment together at our own pace.”
