Vince & Roberto: Elopement in Lake Como – from ManiSol Wedding


Vincent & Roberto, a beautiful Elopement at Villa del Balbianello

“Vince Spinnato, the Hollywood cosmetic chemist married the love of his life, designer Roberto Racanelli in the spectacular background of Villa del Balbianello in Lake Como.”

These words can hardly describe the fun, excitement, and true happiness we witnessed sharing Vince and Roberto’s special day. A true firework of a wedding ceremony, indeed: once the grooms shared their I dos, daylight fireworks colored the Lake Como sky in many beautiful rainbow-colored clouds. Enjoy!

Charm, elegance, and refinement – and at the same time fun, sensuality, and (literal) fireworks are the keywords for this wonderful elopement in Villa del Balbianello and Grand Hotel Tremezzo.
Vince and Roberto got ready in two suites of the iconic GHT and had their first look at the – likewise, iconic! – Ceremony Garden facing the Lake.

Then, they jumped on a water taxi headed to the spectacular Villa del Balbianello. The whole day was imagined by Vincent (and flawlessly planned by The Lake Como Wedding Planner) and one surprise after the other for Roberto: he did not know they were going to get married in the fabulous villa, and his face when he saw its unforgettable shape from the water taxi was priceless.

They shared their vows in an intimate ceremony under the arches of Loggia Durini. After exchanging their rings, colorful daylight fireworks lit up the sky in many spectacular rainbow clouds!

After having shot some romantic portraits around the villa, we headed back to the Grand Hotel Tremezzo where the newlyweds enjoyed a romantic candlelit dinner in the Sala Contessa.

A wonderful elopement day – two grooms that literally rainbow-colored the skies over Lake Como with their love!
