He Loves Him / A Winter Elopement in the Dolomites
Here at ManiSol – yes, we will never say it enough times – we believe in Love, in all its forms.
And we couldn’t avoid falling in love with Costanzo and Matteo’s love story, too!
A stunning couple, an incredible scenario, and a Love that can move the mountains.
We love working with LGBTQ+ people as much as we love working with every people who share their love, who live their love at the fullest. And these two absolutely do.
Where there’s Love, nothing else matters. Costanzo and Matteo are such a beautiful couple, we couldn’t feel more blessed by the chance of telling their love story!
This beautiful couple met a little more than one year ago, and immediately fell in love with one another. They moved in together almost immediately, and from day one they decided they wanted to live, explore and experience the world together, hand in hand.
And so they did when they started planning their elopement. Without telling anyone, they decided to travel hand in hand, once again, and reach the impossibly beautiful Lake Braies in the heart of the Dolomites.
Lake Braies is a pretty renowned location in Italy, and it gets very crowded during the summer months.
The atmosphere you can breathe in the winter, though, is completely different, and no less beautiful.
The whole lake was frozen, covered by a tiny layer of snow, but the day was warm and sunny.
They rented a private house and walked there together on the morning of their Elopement day.
They told us their story, how they met and how they fell in love before starting to get ready, one after the other.
They had their first look on the terrace of the house – their love and excitement were so real, so beautifully pure we were captured by it.
They put on their super cute wintery-boutonniere, then walked together to the corner of the lake where they exchanged their vows and rings, self-celebrating their love as husband and husband.
They ended their wedding day with a stunning front-lake dinner, laughing and kissing towards all the adventures that are yet to come!
Such love stories are so beautiful and true, it was an honor for us to photograph and film their love and make it immortal.
