Lake Como wedding at Villa Balbianello
Another gorgeous Lake Como wedding at Villa Balbianello!
Villa Balbianello is the ultimate Lake Como wedding venue and was chosen by Alainnah and Mark as the location for their wedding ceremony. The Villa is the most exclusive setting in the Italian lakes and is available for both civil ceremonies AND receptions. It has no equal!
Alainnah and Mark rented one of our favorite private villas for both their stay and the reception which followed. The intimate private Villa is the perfect setting for close family and friends and also hosts outstanding receptions. It also has permission to celebrate civil ceremonies on site.
Wedding preparations began in the morning; a boat whisked all guests to the peninsula where Villa Balbianello is located…..the romance of arriving by boat is one of the highlights of a Balbianello wedding. The ceremony was held under the Old Loggia, a spectacular setting overlooking the views of Lake Como and the villa’s exquisite gardens.
A leisurely boat cruise followed bringing guests back to the Villa where a fabulous lakeside reception awaited. An abundant “aperitivo” hour with buffet of local specialties was enjoyed by guests in the gardens. A seated, formal reception followed at sunset. In the evening, fairy lights created a magical, starlit effect while guests danced the night away.
"Hi Stefania, I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all of your hard work and support leading up to our wedding and on the big day itself. The day was truly magical. We loved every minute of it and it was stunning.
Thank again for making the most important day in our lives so special. You really interpreted our vision and turned it in to a real life experience. It was also a real pleasure working with you over the past year.
Many thanks again. Mark and Alainnah"
