Paola and Ali’s refined wedding at Villa La Cassinella and Villa Balbianello is a new all-time favorite of mine! Clearly, these two are such a gorgeous couple, but what I love about them, even more, is that they have two kindest hearts. Not only was every little detail of the day simply beautiful, but Paola and Ali’s love for each other was so inspiring! Also, Paola has this grace and elegance about her, and she has the most impeccable taste. So, it was no surprise how stunning she was in her custom dress designed by Magda Butrym!

The wedding day started at Villa La Cassinella, with the preparations and the first look at the garden: it was so sweet, and the way that Ali looked at Paola was the cutest. I can’t believe that right after the weather suddenly changed and it started pouring rain. We take advantage of that time for more pictures inside and to relax a bit before heading out to Villa Balbianello, for the ceremony. Witnessing them exchange their vows to each other underneath the loggia Durini brought tears to everyone’s eyes…

Before these two celebrated with their family and friends we had our portrait time around Balbianello Gardens. It was tough narrowing down my favorite photos from that time spent together! Then, the reception started. As soon as we all walked into loggia Segrè our jaws hit the floor. Benevent planners decorated the interiors perfectly. I loved the tablescape lined with organic blooms and chandeliers, the candlelights, and crystals…Everything was a dream! Paola and Ali, together with their families and friends, had a wonderful night full of fun and dances. I feel so humbled to have been chosen to document their wedding at Villa La Cassinella and Balbianello. It was such a beautiful day filled with happy tears and lots of joy!
