Rain started to fall near the end but this did not make us feel negative at all. It was over when the wedding ceremony ended.
I was really happy when Aria’s mother Connie called me from the USA to ask if I could take the photos of their wedding at Geneva Lake. They liked my style among a lot of photographers in Europe and contacted me. First, this really excited me and made me happy. After we sealed the deal with Connie, we met with Aria and Daniel on Skype and gone through details. We were ready for the photoshoot.
The place was the house of the cousin of Connie and she was living here with her two daughters. The location of the house was incredible. The front of the house and the garden was facing the Geneva Lake and you were able to see the Alps above the lake. The architecture and interior of the house were great too. At that moment, I realized why they chose this place for the wedding.
They were 13 people in total with the couple and the place was ideal for such an organization. This was one of the classiest and simple weddings I have ever witnessed. The Geneva Lake’s peacefulness and the couple blended and the day was exceptional.

After the preparation photo shoot, the wedding ceremony started with the beautiful lake and mountain view in the background. The father is bringing his daughter to the ceremony.
Wedding vows were very emotional and I focused on these moments as much as I could. This was one of the most simple and efficient wedding ceremonies I have ever witnessed.
At the end of the speeches all relatives gave big hugs to the couple.

The afternoon photoshoot started at the terrace of Le Mirador Hotel during cocktails. Then we watched the clouds carry heavy rain towards us from the west side of the lake. Right at this moment, I had the chance to take photos of the couple with these black clouds in the background.
After a while, we went to dinner in another room. We took photos of the dinner in this room with antique chandeliers and paintings. The family and friends pray before the wedding dinner.
