There are no words for how stunning these two are and how much their love shines through this imagery. Shalana and Brian booked me for their September, 2023 wedding and we finally had the chance to capture their spring editorial engagement portraits. This stunning venue where we captured their engagements also happens to be where they will celebrate the best day of their lives in Salem, Oregon and Zenith Vineyards.
Through the months of planning and excitement these two arrived with their pup Nala and Shalanas Grandpas, yellow vintage ford car. It added the perfect timeless feel to their whole engagement portrait session. We got to explore around the grounds of the venue and it felt like a slice of Italy. Because of the romantic and timeless features it made me realize all the amazing European wedding venues.
Here are some of my top favorites Italy wedding venues for 2023 and 2024-
ABBAZIA LA CERVARA, PORTOFINO– Stunning garden views and a waterfront property in Santa Margherita Ligure GE, Italy , this venue would bring any whimsical garden inspiration to life.
Villa del Balbianello– This is another waterfront property in Lenno, Italy near other attractions such as Lake Como, Milan and Venice.
Villa Il Balbiano– The last waterfront property on my list is the amazing and well known Villa ll Balbiano. A 10/10 perfect venue for the timeless and madly in love couples.
Villa Cimbron– Located on the Almafi Coast Villa Cimbron will leave you wanting to stay for the rest of eternity. With the stunning views and being only 15 minutes from main attractions you can find this to be the perfect destination for your wedding.
