I met Alessia and Guido at a wedding five years ago. They were recently engaged, and it was nice to know their story from the speeches and promises they exchanged during the ceremony at Locarno’s City Hall. After the ceremony we stopped by the stunning Museum Casa Rusca, where Alessia works, to snap a few shots.
Alessia and Guido stroll hand in hand past shop displays in Locarno, a sunny resort city in southern Switzerland, on their way to the city hall ceremony.
A crowd of family and friends greets the smiling couple as they arrive at Locarno City Hall.
Alessia smiles warmly at Guido as the wedding ceremony begins in Locarno’s historic city hall.
The bride wipes away a tear as the couple’s councilor conducts their wedding ceremony, surrounded by loved ones in the intimate setting.
Guido places a hand on Alessia’s shoulder to emphasize his speech as the couple exchanges their vows.
An arrangement of fresh flowers brings a hint of spring to the city hall’s interior, nicely accentuating the room’s rich hardwoods and framed artwork.
Ducking out of the formal setting and back into Locarno’s bustling streets, the new couple shares a smile on their wedding day.
