Kiira and Arthur
A luxury wedding at Villa del Balbianello, Como Lake.
On the day of Kiira & Arthur’s wedding Lake Como graced us with a wonderful sunny spring day. The lake was calm, the cherry trees in full bloom across the banks and the light was simply perfect, a magical atmosphere as if time itself wanted to stop and eternalize the moments. We met Arthur returning from a ride on the long lake his smile said it all! His preparations at the luxury hotel Terminus on the lakefront were filled with emotions. His best men and his brother helped him put on his custom white tux and right before they boarded a boat to Villa Balbianello.
Overlooking Piazza Cavour, Kiira got prepared in a beautiful attic, where large windows and an all-romantic balcony filled the room with creamy light. We could tell right from the start these were very special sentimental moments for her. Radiating with bliss and surrounded by her bridesmaids, among them her sister the blogger Petra @petrakorpi, who wore pastel-colored gowns they were all lulled by the sun and the Italian scents of blooms coming from the streets under our prestigious perch. Stunning in a dress designed for her by the Fashion Designer Teemu Muurimäki she couldn’t wait to get in the boat to be with Arthur.
The boat trip to the Villa was accompanied by music, laughs, hard love and some gorgeous lake vistas in the breeze. Upon our arrival Kiira started walking towards the aisle and Arthur waited for his bride in total anticipation. The moment of their meeting was as if it came out of a fairtytale.
The couple’s guests were entertained on the terrace overlooking the lake, with romantic music, Italian antipasti and wine, while Kiira and Arthur whisked each other away for some alone time on a boat ride around the villa, and upon their return the reception inside the villa began, with a candlelit dinner soaked in florals, chandeliers as the excited members of their families began their speeches. Cheek @cheekofficial and Elastinen @elastinen, Kiira’s favorite band played the couple’s song, a nod to the bride’s figure skating moves, as the two danced on the veranda.
