Gorgeous Villa Balbianello Wedding in Lake Como
Absolute elegance and style defined Lindsey and Joe’s wedding in Lake Como.
Lindsey and Joe visited Lake Como with our team to decide on a ceremony and reception venue about a year and a half prior to the big event. Villa Balbianello easily won the “beauty contest” and in fact is the uncontested First Lady of Lake Como. Nothing compares with it!
Lindsey was a pleasure to work with, possessing a keen eye for detail and very refined taste. The entire family showed great care and concern towards their guests in every possible detail starting with the gift bags filled with local treats which were waiting for each guest upon arrival at their hotel.
The night prior I arranged for an informal welcome evening at one of Bellagio’s restaurants; a chance for everyone to relax and get to know each other.
On the wedding day boats whisked guests and wedding party to the peninsula where Villa Balbianello is located. The first sight of Villa Balbianello is always a heart-stopping moment. No photo will do it justice!
The ceremony was celebrated in the ivy covered, old Loggia Durini; one of the most spectacular settings for an Italy wedding ceremony. Afterwards aperitifs were served in the Loggia Segre’ where imperial tables, beautifully laid out with tall, formal arrangements wowed the guests.
After dinner dancing continued under the stars; a magical ending for Lindsey and Joe’s romantic Lake Como wedding at Villa Balbianello.
What an absolutely INCREDIBLE wedding we had...all I can say was it was ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!!!! Despite the weather, it was still the most magical affair we could have ever dreamed of! Rita was the very best, Bastianoni and his team were wonderful, Biagio and his team were just incredible, and everything looked breathtaking!!!! The flowers and table set up were more than I even imagined, and we were absolutely delighted with the U table!!!! Our guests were dazzled, and we could not have been happier celebrating our wedding in such a divinely special way!!!
Words cannot begin to thank you, Rita, and all the vendors involved for ALL that you did to make our wedding so perfect!!
.....thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our dream wedding come true!! So many thanks again!
