Marrying Amidst Reflections and Peaks: A Two-Day Elopement at Lago di Braies and Seceda in the Dolomites

BRAIES lake elopement

Hello beautiful Souls!
For lovers of nature and adventure, I propose a special two-day elopement in the Dolomites, combining the majesty of Seceda, the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, or the serene Val di Siusi with the enchanted tranquility of Lago di Braies.

Day One: Adventure Among the Peaks Begin your matrimonial journey by venturing to Seceda, the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, or strolling through the peaceful Val di Siusi. These places offer extraordinary scenery and endless opportunities for spectacular photographs. Seceda is famous for its sharp peaks standing out against the sky, while the Tre Cime di Lavaredo are an icon of the Dolomites, known for their distinctive shapes and breathtaking views. For a truly exceptional experience at the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, consider a scenic helicopter tour, offering unparalleled views of these majestic peaks. Val di Siusi, with its vast alpine meadows and views of the surrounding mountains, offers a more bucolic and tranquil atmosphere.

Day Two: Magic at Dawn at Lago di Braies The following day, I recommend waking up before dawn to reach Lago di Braies. This lake, also known as Pragser Wildsee in German, is a charming alpine lake located in the Dolomites mountain range in northern Italy. Situated near the Austrian border in the Trentino-Alto Adige region, in a side valley of the Val Pusteria, this bilingual area reflects its historical past as part of Austria, which is why both German and Italian are spoken here. The early morning hours, when the first rays of sun light up the landscape and the silence is only broken by the gentle rustle of the water, are especially magical. Here, you can exchange your vows on a romantic rowboat, creating an intimate and unforgettable moment, perfect to be captured through my camera lens.

Tips for a Perfect Two-Day Elopement:

  • Planning: Organizing a two-day elopement requires attention to detail. It is essential to coordinate travel and bookings in advance, especially during the high season.
  • Accommodation: Consider staying in refuges or hotels close to your chosen locations to minimize transfers and maximize relaxation.
  • Equipment: Bring suitable clothing for various weather conditions, as temperatures can vary significantly between day and night in the mountains.
  • Special Moments: Do not forget to personalize your elopement with details that represent your union, such as meaningful symbols or customized rituals during the ceremony.Dolomites wedding

Exclusivity and Intimacy at Lago di Braies: To ensure a truly personal and private experience, I highly recommend booking the small cabin on Lago di Braies. This will allow you to have an hour and a half of complete privacy. Imagine exchanging your vows in peace, away from the eyes of tourists, while navigating the calm waters of the lake, surrounded by an unparalleled alpine scenery. This moment of intimacy, in one of the most enchanting places in the Dolomites, will make your elopement an unforgettable and deeply personal experience (€400 for total exclusivity, €200 if shared with another couple).
