Elopement in Lake Braies
He loves Him: Elopement in Lake Braies, Dolomites

When love knows no boundaries: what can we say about this spectacular, cozy, intimate Elopement? From the very first moment we started designing this self-proclaimed elopement with these two gorgeous grooms, we knew we would have remembered it. Their love was so strong, so powerful, we may have cried a bit too!
An icy Lake Braies was simply the most beautiful and ethereal setting we could think of. Enjoy the power of love and this Winter Elopement in Lake Braies!
Lake Braies – “the gem of the Dolomites” – is an extremely popular location in the North East of Italy, just a few miles from the Austrian border. During the summer months, it is very crowded: everyone wants to come to its shiny green rivers for a selfie or rent a small boat!
In the winter months, however, the lake shows a totally different mood. The whole lake is normally frozen from November to March and covered in snow, and the atmosphere is simply incredible.
To have this elopement, we rented La Palafitta: a stilt house that serves as a boat-renting service in the summer months. There, the grooms got ready separately and had an unforgettable first look facing the dolomites. Calling them cuties would be an understatement!
Then, we walked together to a secluded spot on the frozen lake where they shared their vows and rings in an intimate, romantic self-proclaimed wedding ceremony. While we were having the couple shoot, the private chef we hired and their team prepared the dinner setup: a rustic table, tons of dark flowers, and a black and golden table set.
There, the newlyweds shared a romantic dinner as the sun was setting down on the Lake – the perfect romance for such an unforgettable elopement in Lake Braies.
