Getting ready at Villa la Collina
It was a bit cloudy that day on Lake Como
Both Stefanie and Rouven got ready at the Villa la Collina of course in two different rooms.
The bride chose a white gown with veil and during the preparation was helped by her mother and bridesmaids.
Rouven wore a black suit wit bow tie and got ready with his Scottish best man.
The wedding ceremony was held in St. Abbondio Church at Mezzegra, not far from Cadenabbia.
The groom was waiting her beautiful bride with priest inside the church.
The bride was absolute stunning walking the aisle with her father, preceded by a lovely flower girl.
It started raining a bit during the ceremony, so the photographer took some pics from the balcony of the pipe organ, capturing all the wedding party.
Aperitif on boat
After ceremony, bride, groom and all the guests moved to the little harbour to go onboard for a boat trip.
That boat is very special because is a vintage one, named Milano.
During the trip was served aperitifs with Italian Prosecco and delicious canapés.
After boat trip, everyone got back to the Villa where the reception took place.
