An Intimate, Candlelit Same-Sex Wedding in Venice



Robert and Rakeem are a loving couple coming from Colorado, USA. They fell in love with Venice, and wanted to experience a private, romantic wedding experience filled with luxe, joy and passion.
Starting the day at their majestic royal suite inside Ca’ Sagredo, I could feel their emotion and love from the very first moment I saw them. We had a walk along the streets of Venice first – exploring the city and seeing its beauty through their eyes was simply wonderful.
The grooms wanted to keep their vows private – so they shared them on the majestic staircase of Ca Sagredo, eye to eye, with no one around them.

After a couple shoot – and a spritz! – inside the hotel, their romantic wedding dinner was being prepared. It took place in the beautiful Sala della Musica of Ca Sagredo: an intimate, mirror table filled with candles and white orchids that shone wonderfully inside the frescoed hall.
At night, the couples’ best friend joined them in a fun, relaxed and luxurious atmosphere filled with speeches, laughter, and happy tears.

At the end of the dinner, we walked all together to San Marco to enjoy the beautiful Venicean night – and have some paparazzi-style photos, too!
