As purveyors of destination weddings, we’re always looking for events with unique locations, fun style or a sweet story. Today’s Real Wedding Wednesday post certainly fits the bill. Noemie and Ernesto are from Berna, Switzerland and wanted a waterfront wedding without having to travel thousands of miles to the Mediterranean.

With the help of their friends, the couple pulled off the destination wedding of their dreams on the shores of Lake Maggiore. The lake in Switzerland en route to Italy and was a gorgeous backdrop to this couple’s nuptials. The couple designed all the place settings, ceremony set up, cocktail hour, reception, invitations and favors themselves.

Noemie and Ernesto said “I do” at the botanical gardens on the Islands of Brissago. The couple and their guests traveled to the island by ferry and were thus transported to a wedding wonderland. While the wedding went well, the weather wasn’t fully cooperative. Because of high winds, the couple weren’t able to take photos on the lakeshore.

The ceremony was an intimate and spiritual occasion. One of the couple’s dearest friends officiated the ceremony and Noemie and Ernesto asked their friends to bless their marriage. The reception was held on-site and away from the wild wind. Noemie and Ernesto’s unique style, combined with a beautiful and interesting wedding location, made this wedding too good to pass up.
