There’s nothing quite as spectacular as an Italian summer, which is (not surprisingly) why it’s one of the busiest wedding seasons all over the country. However, there is one magical region that has everybody from Hollywood A-listers to royalty flocking to get married. Combing the awe-inspiring landscape with historic luxury, there’s no doubt that the Lake Como region is one of our top Italian wedding destinations. With sky-high mountains and silver-blue water, the lakeside area is speckled with beautiful ancient villas - perfect wedding venues.

One of these marvelous villas is the Villa del Balbianello, and was the most idyllic choice for Brittany and Christopher’s fairytale summer destination wedding in Lake Como.

With a natural all-white floral theme in mind, Villa del Balbianello’s stunning landscape is located on the tip of the lush peninsula of Dosso d’Avedo on the shore of the south west side of Lake Como. Boasting a jaw-dropping historic terrace, the outdoor gardens of the villa was an easy choice for Christopher and Brittany’s symbolic ceremony.

They kicked off the celebrations with a welcome event the night before the big day. Guests indulged on a traditional Italian buffet style dinner while sipping on some of the region’s finest wines.

Accommodations were spread among a few chic luxury boutique hotels nearby Villa del Balbianello, making it easy for everyone to enjoy the gorgeous lakeside.

The day of the wedding, the warm Italian July sun was shining. Brittany got ready with her bridesmaids in one of the Grand Hotel Tremezzo's luxurious suites. She opted for a timeless look, donning a classic chiffon bun paired with neutral glowing makeup and a stunning intricate lace gown.

Nearby, Christopher and his groomsmen prepared to embark on a speedboat to take them to the dock of Villa del Balbianello. Christopher wore a sleek all black tux, the perfect choice for a glamorous wedding in Lake Como.

While all the guests waited for the ceremony to begin, a pre-ceremony cocktail hour was served just before everyone found their seats on the ancient terrace overlooking the entire lake.

While Brittany and her bridesmaids made their way to the villa via boat, all eyes were eagerly waiting to see the beautiful bride. As she made her way down the aisle, the song ‘A Thousand Years’ played by violin and cello and brought everyone to tears.
