Touching the sky on Mont Blanc the Roof of Europe
Some time ago we told you about the possibility to plan a wonderful wedding on top of Mont Blanc in a post we wrote on this blog. Do you remember about that? If not you can get back here and discover the beauty of this location.
Mont Blanc is the refrigerator of Europe, it is oxygen, it is majesty!
Alps are always a dreamy destination and a wonderful spot to celebrate a strong and powerful union. Energy you can breath on top of Mont Blanc is amazing.
His Majestiy Mont Blanc – a grand venue for a wedding at high altitude
Mount Blanc defines the border between France, Italy and Switzerland. It rises from the other mountains with wonderful white mantle. With its 4,810 meters of altitude and a rounded profile, it stands high and proud.
What about celebrating your legal civil wedding on top of this giant admiring a spectacular view? Kajsa and Marc did it last July and it was gorgeous!
This lovely couple came to Italy in Aosta Valley and precisely in Courmayeur village with few guests all way down from Sweden to celebrate a very special and intimate wedding on Mont Blanc.
A wedding in Courmayeur – Aosta Valley
Courmayeur is a wonderful little town located in Aosta Valley on foot of Mont Blanc. It is one of the most popular and beautiful destination for winter sports: downhill ski and snowboard in particular.
In Courmayeur there are wonderful hotels, traditional mountain style restaurants, chalets and pretty apartments to plan a lovely mountain vacation in Italy. It is just here where Kajsa and Marc and their intimate family spent their Italian days.
Skyway Mont Blanc reaching the top for a civil wedding on Mont Blanc
Courmayeur is also the place where famous Skyway Monte Bianco is located.
Skyway is the famous, technological, futuristic cable way to reach 3,466 meters of altitude. But we think that this is much more than this. On their official web site you can read that it is a way to “get man closer to the mountain and sky, broadening our horizons, overcoming boundaries”. We totally agree with this quote and so Kajsa and Marc did.
Once ready in their romantic style wedding dresses and a loose and with Kajsa having in her hands a country chic bridal bouquet, they met our photographer Fabio Fistarol who get on the cable car with them to reach Pointe Helbronner where the civil ceremony was planned.
A fantastic trip to climb up to touch the sky and live the majesty of Mont Blanc.
Pointe Helbronner – a legal civil ceremony on top of Mont Blanc
Pointe Helbronner Mont Blanc is a special venue for a civil ceremony on Mont Blanc
The Station of Pointe Helbronner, also called The Sky, is simply magic! We are at an altitude of 3466 metre above the sea level and it seems that you can touch the sky and other mountains around you. There is a wonderful futuristic and technological building that perfectly blends with nature here that show you a 360 degree view of the mountains thanks to its circular terrace.
It is just here that Courmayeur mayor met bride and groom and their small group of guests to celebrate a very intimate legal civil ceremony with a magic view. Ceremony was sweet, fun and magic. Photographer Fabio Fistarol was there to take every single emotion of this moments. And he did it perfectly. He is very talented.
After the ceremony bride and groom took some time to have some great photos with such a perfect view and then got back to Courmayeur village for their celebratory meal.
A special book shop on top of Mont Blanc
But we can also suggest to enjoy Pointe Helbronner for a little more.
As the matter of fact its Crystall Hall showcases the beauties of Alps, Mont Blanc Hall where you can admire the mountains from the indoor if it is cold and windy and a Panoramic Bistrot where you can enjoy a celebratory meal or aperitif after the wedding ceremony.
For books lover a little curiosity Point Helbronner hosts the highest book shop in Europe! La Feltrinelli book shop recently opened a lovely 60 squared meters book shop at 3466 metres of altitude: 376 titles for a total of 1726 books divided by topics best sellers, mountains, flowers, photographic book, Aosta Valley, mountain path, novels, Aosta Valley cuisine and wines, and kids books.
