Bettina and Michael decided to get married in a small way: They wanted an intimate Alta Badia wedding in the mountains, that grasped the true meaning of it, without huge parties. A couple who wanted a romantic moment all to themselves.
Things for which I am a big advocate.
They stood at Chalet Rönn, a luxury chalet in Colfosco, and then dined in a mountain hut: Col Pradat Lodge. Both are wonderful places to get married in Colfosco.
Alta Badia offers wonderful places to get married in absolute intimacy, as they did. They chose the Gardena Pass to take their couple photos and spend some time outdoors together.
On that gloomy day, mother nature gave us dramatic and at the same time romantic views.
In fact, in the off-season, the Gardena Pass is a practically empty place. I love it, being the mountain pass of my hometown and I know a few secret places to take my couples to in the busiest months, like the summer ones.
History of Col Pradat Lodge: In 1920, the pioneer Ernst Happel had a vision: He wanted to “shorten” the hikers’ and mountain climbers’ path to the Dolomites and erected a small, tranquil lodge at the foot of Mount Sassongher. It started out as a rest house and retreat where people could order small meals and drinks.
Because this “secret tip” had spread very quickly, the small lodge quickly became no longer suitable for its many visitors, and so in time it developed into a modern, but at the same time comfortable lodge, the Col Pradat Lodge, where all tastes come at that their own cost, and where people still feel good, as they did almost 70 years ago.
