Outdoor Wedding in Milan
This outdoor wedding, which took place in Villa Cassoli Pellegrini near Milan, is the demonstration of the fact that you don’t need to start the preparations well in advance to organize an impeccable ceremony and reception, if you have a lot of good taste … and a bit of luck.
Marcela and Alberto, in fact, had decided to marry only a few months before celebrating their wedding, but the result of their efforts was truly amazing. Everything started, of course, from the choice of the venue. After having explored several proposals in the surroundings of Milan, the city in which they live, to strike them was this elegant and almost unknown villa in Arcore. It doesn’t host many weddings, and it is a pity, because it is a wonderful, refined and charming setting. Marcela insisted for the civil ceremony to be held in the entrance garden in of the villa, in front of a portico completely covered by a luxuriant ivy. After that, the guests were entertained with an aperitif in the back garden (a real hidden gem), while we and the newlyweds were shooting the couple portraits in the large lawn beyond the gate. For the outdoor dinner the imperial table had been set up on the avenue of access (another point to which the bride was particularly fond of), decorated with flowers and candles. The glance was really wonderful, especially when the sun went down.
Even today we still remember this as one of our favorite weddings of 2017: extremely elegant and at the same time simple, intimate and relaxed. The spouses wanted only close relatives and close friends to accompany them during the day. This meant that the atmosphere was particularly pleasant and informal, like a dinner with friends on a warm summer evening.
