Looking for a sophisticated venue? Find a wedding planner in Lake Como!
Emma and Glen were in love with the idea of an Italian venue by a lake, but what lake?
On a cold day in January, they set to visit some of the villas near Lake Maggiore, Lake Garda and Lake Como.
They finally found their dream venue with some help from their wedding planner. Lake Como hosts some of the most legendary wedding venues in Italy, but the infinity pool by the lake, charming view, finely refurbished rooms and hall of this Italian luxury villa dazzled the couple.
The only flaw: no music allowed after midnight! A true problem for their love for dancing. The wedding planner’s solution: continue their party in the middle of Lake Como on a boat!
The civil ceremony was also planned in the Como lake villa and followed the groom’s rock-n-roll arrival on a boat after a cheerful tour with his friends in the center of Cernobbio.
Shades of white, green and silver composed the color palette of this Italian Lake reception with silver invitations, chandeliers and candles.
Floral decorations included 3 types of larger roses and smaller, cluster-flowering roses, orchids and hydrangeas: the romantic and impactful effect was guaranteed.
The true protagonist of this luxury Italian lake ceremony was the sumptuous floral arch that framed the couple and the stunning backdrop that the pool provided.
Small, compact clusters of white roses and petals welcomed the bride’s arrival to the altar, while Emma, wrapped in a sexy dress by Pronovias, walked down the aisle created for the occasion holding a precious orchid bouquet.
For the centerpieces, I alternated tall cups and shorter pots and candles so conversation among guests flowed undisturbed.
Nifty gifts were awaiting guests near their place cards and menus: personalized, eau-de-cologne-scented, soy candles – everything 100% Made in Italy!
The cutting of the rigorously full-chocolate cake was followed by the opening dance on board of the boat that was rented for the occasion. The lake party then continued as planned near this unparalleled Italian wedding villa until sunrise at the rhythm of Beyoncé, Bob Sinclair and Robby Williams!
