It’s not a secret that one of the most requested lakes in Italy for a couples weekend getaway is Lake Como. It’s a place of romance and dreams. I would also call it an ideal romantic destination with a mixture of nature, fine dining, gorgeous sunsets and stunning villas surrounded by magnificent gardens. And when we talk about the villas on Lake Como, some of them are truly breathtaking. What villas are not to miss? Villa Balbianello, Villa D’Este, Villa Serbelloni, Villa Melzi or Villa Carlotta and many others. Many villas are open to the public so you may find them pretty busy. However, some of them offer an exclusivity to hire a location for special moments just like a wedding proposal.
Sinan & Gizem, a lovely Turkish couple, had an opportunity to experience something truly memorable. Sinan and his brother were attending an exhibition in Milan for a few days. Gizem was supposed to reach them for a weekend getaway. Sinan decided to take this opportunity as an excuse and bring Gizem to Lake Como for a surprise marriage proposal.
Our mission was to find a beautiful villa overlooking the lake and the place where to pop the question. After some research, Sinan opted for Villa Lario Resort, a historical residence nestled in green space and surrounded by the charming landscape of Lake Como.
To surprise Gizem, Sinan and I planned for proposal under the gazebo in the Villa’s garden, hired exclusively for that once-in-a-lifetime moment. To spice it up, we also hired a violinist, photographer and video operator to capture each moment. Gizem didn’t expect anything and when she arrived under the gazebo, she was absolutely amazed.
Sinan popped the question and …
… Gizem said YES!!!
Congratulations on your engagement!
Love begins in a MOMENT,
grows over TIME,
and lasts an ETERNITY.
Huge thanks goes to:
Location: Villa Lario Resort Mandello
