The romantic wedding day that was
It was mid-autumn when Victoria and Brett tied the knot, and the ceremony happened in the afternoon when the sun was not too strong and the cold weather was still tolerable.
Before traveling to the lakeside elopement venue, the couple got ready at a hotel amidst a peaceful Swiss mountain village. It was a perfect place to prepare for their adventure elopement because the hotel offers a quiet atmosphere and vibrant nature views.
After getting ready, Victoria and Brett had their first look in an open space overlooking the mountains and the scenic Swiss village dotted with rustic cottages. Excitement filled the air and the couple could not hide their emotions upon seeing each other in their gorgeous wedding attire.
They rode a gondola to the ceremony spot along the lake, and hiked on a beautiful trail amidst the alpine forest. The place is truly enchanting, and the clouds that hovered above them added more magic to their special day.
The hike gave Victoria and Brett a chance to relax and unwind before the ceremony. With them were their wedding planner, the celebrant, and the solo musician who played the romantic songs requested by the couple for the ceremony.
The couple couldn’t help but laugh and cry as they exchanged vows, hearing the genuine appreciation and promises made to each other. They talked about who they were before they met and how they changed each other for the better, and reminisced about the moments that made them realize that this relationship is going to last forever.
After the vows and the memorable kiss, the couple brought out a bottle of wine and toasted for the success of their adventure wedding in Switzerland.
