I feel as if I am living a dream.  Italy is by far my favorite country.  During my journey to this beautiful country, we visited Lake Como.  Our styled shoot could not be more perfect and enjoyable.  Thanks to the wonderful wedding planner Andrea Naar Alba with WED Couture Milano.  Andrea is a gem!  If you are planning a wedding in Italy, please contact her!  She is knowledgable and efficient.  Not to mention she is an absolute doll to work with.  Thank you so much Andrea for making my visit to Lake Como a great experience!
The wonderful Andrea found this amazing private lake front Villa  in Lake Como.  The 14th century villa is incredibly well kept and the ground is just immaculate.  The exterior is true to old italian architect and the interior is ornate and beautiful.  We wanted to design a special wedding ceremony and reception for this villa without taking away its beautiful character.  The all WHITE florals complemented the ceremony  which overlook the lake wonderfully .  We used old urns overflowing with lush florals and set on moss laden balustrade.  The ornate reception room in the Villa was beautifully decorated with butter color curtains and old chandeliers.  The ceiling of this room was immaculately carved and the wood flooring embossed with ornate patterns.  Our choice for the centerpieces included a 100 yr  old bronze candelabras with beautiful carved cherubs.  These lovely candelabras were draped with thick floral garlands and lush blooms of garden roses, viburnum, hydrangeas, tulips and orchids.  Below are some images I snapped with my iphone to show you all the Splendor and Grandeur of this villa  Some are professional photos from Diego with Photo 27.  We are so honored and extremely grateful for the opportunity to design in Italy.  We are looking forward to our next wedding in Italy coming up in April.  If it’s anything like our experience with Lake Como, it’s going to be amazing!
Please stay tuned for more professional photos from Photo 27……did we also mention that this will be featured in Vogue Sposa?  Oh, we are so incredibly excited!
