Andrea and Jan with their daughter cross the pier to reach the taxi waiting for them.

Jan and Andrea arrived from the Czech Republic with their little girl in Venice to celebrate their wedding in a very intimate way! I must say that Venice is always wonderful, but in winter it is even more magical, often shrouded in fog and with few tourists! After getting ready and dressed at the Hotel Carlton On The Grand Canal, Jan and Andrea and their baby daughter reached Palazzo Cavalli by taxi, where they were expected to celebrate the ceremony.

After having both smoked the last single cigarette, Jan and Andrea reached the main hall of this splendid 16th-century building ... greeted by the celebrating official. Their ceremony was very beautiful and exciting, truly intimate and made special by the presence of their beautiful daughter, who brought them the wedding rings and with whom they shared this important moment!

After the usual photos on the balcony of Palazzo Cavalli from which you can admire all the wonder of the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge, we went by taxi first to the Chiesa della Salute and then we reached the Island of San Giorgio where everyone wanted to do of portraits with carnival masks!

For lunch, the family chose one of the historical places in Venice, the Poste Vecie Restaurant, a very romantic and intimate restaurant in the Fish Market area. I really wish the new family all the best that life can bring them!
