Before the wedding, guests and close family members wait with the bride, helping one another don corsages in a small room of the Villa Bossi.

After a very short ceremony at the town hall in Switzerland, the couple reunites with their family and close friends for a very special and symbolic celebration in one of the romantic rooms of Villa Bossi in Varese. The couple’s children even got to be a part of their parents’ wedding since their little son served as the ringbearer, and they have a baby girl along the way! Nothing was missing from this elegant and intimate day, not even a single note played by the talented saxophonist, who provided the perfect soundtrack for the all-day event.
