Wedding in Trentino Alto Adige Dolomites

The bride, Karene, got prepared in the exclusive Hotel Kolfuschgerhof, really elegant and refined in the local architecture. The groom, Patrick, was in a lovely alpine hut, named Chalet Roenn.

The magical atmosphere, the green mountains, surrounding the village, the clear rivers and waterfalls, the crisp air and the intense beauty of Colfosco nature, contributed to an unforgettable day. This alpine hut has got an incredible panorama, characterized by the big cliffs of the Dolomites, far away from the hectic everyday life.

The moving ceremony took place under a slow and soft rain with a breathtaking backdrop: the cliffs of the mountains surrounded by clouds. This made the atmosphere even more unique. The reception instead, took place inside the lodge, with some good music in the background and Ladin gastronomic delights, all accompanied by a glass of good wine of Trentino Alto Adige. Festivities continued with touching speeches made by the couple’s’ family and close friends, funny toasts and ended with a delicious typical Trentino cake: the apple strudel, but this one… was longer than a meter! A big surprise for the newlyweds.
