Today’s feature takes place in, beautiful, Verona, Italy with a behind the scenes styled bridal inspiration by Sotiris Tsakanikas Photography. After years of shooting wedding photography and finding an appreciation for all the special moments that unfold during a day of marriage, Sotiris took inspiration from his brides and re-created a bridal morning. We love wedding details at Dear Gray Magazine and the individual attention to moments such as a bride reading her vows while laying in bed surrounded by solitude is one that Sotiris has well documented. Not only do we get to fall in love with the details inside of Hotel Villa Giona, but soon we are led to a quaint veranda where our bride’s skin is sun drenched with the morning’s first glow while also being surrounded by Italian statues and views of Italy’s lakes.
“My inspiration came from my real brides’ mornings; I wanted to create a very romantic wedding morning with my model, Alba, in a fantastic room of the hotel of Villa Giona. This villa looks over the beautiful lakes in Verona. Moments before meeting your beloved are so precious and your smile is always so bright when you wake up with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen. Yes, it’s your wedding day!”
