Jamie and Matthias - Lake Como Wedding

First off thank you for your patience with us on getting back to you with feedback. It’s funny how quickly life can get in the way. We want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being such wonderful planners throughout this entire process.

Raffaela, you were truly wonderful to work with on a daily basis for the 14-15 months. We planned 3 wonderful events for us and our guests and we were wow'd each day. The wedding day was absolutely spectacular and with the weather on our side you couldn't have found a happier bride and groom!

Alessandro and his team really make fairytales come alive and I was totally blown away with his floral transformation of each space. It was beyond what I imagine and created with your help and guidance. One of my clearest memories was when Raffaela took me alone into our marquis before we let guests come in. I was filled with so much emotion I couldn't hold the tears back. The entire room was filled with the smell of fresh roses, hydrangeas and orchids. It was truly a dream come true!

Welcome dinner:
This was absolutely the right choice to host our welcome event. I am so glad we cancelled with Loft and moved it here. The food was phenomenal. Everyone loved the risotto and pasta. Open bar service was excellent as well. It was a perfect layout for our families to meet, catch up and get to know one another. The space was also perfect for 80-100 people. They laid out the seating and tables very well. Being able to see outside was also lovely on a rainy evening.

Villa Geno:
We are very happy with our venue choice and the decor and over all service was very good! Everyone catered to our guests and were very friendly and polite. Please extend our thanks for Alice, Giorgio, and Yuri (I think that was the Manager's name that night). We did not get a chance to thank our officiant in person after the wedding ceremony, if you speak to him again please pass along our gratitude!
• Aperitivo & buffet: I only saw photos of the buffet a month later, but let me say they were fantastic! Every single guest told me over and over how amazing the set up was and abundant the food was. They had 3rds if not 4ths! I love the bar set up and seating area! The high bistro tables were a perfect addition too. We did need them, I saw they were all used! In the beginning there was no white wine being served but Matthias and Raffaela sorted it out so quickly it was great!

Alessandro and his team created stunning settings and were on point with our vision. I was so pleased and didn't imagine the floral design would be so lush and spectacular. Alessandro and his team were so lovely to work with and meet. It's a huge part of the wedding budget but I do see this value and he blew us away.

How was the day after at Lido di Bellagio?
Lido di Bellagio was a great spot to host the welcome brunch. We just wish we could have picked it up and moved it to Como. lol. It is quite a distance to get to (especially hung over by car!) But it was a great venue. The GM and the staff were very kind and assisted us with whatever we needed.

We feel that Rosanna & Raffaela definitely provided the best suggestions, feedback and knowledge to assist us with making any decisions we weren't 100% decided on. Our wedding day was above and beyond expectation and we were so grateful for everyone's help on the day of. Rita was also perfect for me to have before the ceremony. She was perfect to ensure all the girls were ready to go and kept me calm!
Yes, would absolutely be happy to be a reference! Please use my contact and not Matthias'
I've already had ladies in the USA reach out to me asking me how the service was. I gave great info and feedback!

I hope this feedback is useful!! Thank you again soo much for making one of the most memorable days in our lives the happiest! ❤
