The beauty of Lake Como, located in the Lombardy region of Italy, nestled amongst the mountains on the border of Italy and Switzerland, is undeniable. That Italian charm is difficult to duplicate, but this styled wedding shoot, located in Crestline, California, comes very close! The team of stylists, cultivated by Jessica Grazia Mangia Photography, absolutely worked their magic on the San Moritz Lodge to create that feeling of Italian romance. Lots of lace, soft neutral colors, and natural wood help create that soft, rustic feeling, along with the help of some strategically placed antique furniture pieces. In addition, the place settings were accented with gold for a more sophisticated look. The time of year also contributed to the overall look of the shoot — early November adds a variety of colors with the many different flora sliding into winter. As an individual of Italian descent, Jessica Grazia Mangia Photography has a personal connection to this shoot, even beyond that of a creative director! We are so glad she came up with this gorgeous fall shoot! And the adorable ending is truly reminiscent of Lake Como — the happy couple climbs into a little row boat, along with their little fairy flower girl and precious pup, and gently row off of the coastline. So much beauty in one styled shoot!
