We loved Jenna and Brian’s intimate Lake Como wedding!
While Lake Como is famous for grandiose events, luscious parties, and huge villas (like Villa Balbiano, or Villa Sola Cabiati), its shores and mountains hide tiny gems as well, perfect for intimate affairs like the one these two had.
The venue they chose is the tiny, yet fabulous, Villa Confalonieri: the couple rented it all for a week so that it could host the two of them and their closest friends and family members.

Jenna and Brian wanted an old Hollywood, vintage glam vibe for their wedding – and they definitely had it!
Starting from the fabulous dress Jenna wore: a form-fitting, sleek dress decorated by sparkly diamonds that complimented her looks completely. After an enthusiastic first look with her family, it was time to see her groom-to-be for the first time as well: they met at the top terrace of the villa, and what a romantic moment it was.

The ceremony took place in the garden of the villa, among the big palm trees. We loved the ceremony setup: a golden structure with white blooms that was absolutely perfect for the old-style vibe they were looking for. All of their guests got to the villa in their black-tie optional attire – and they all looked fabulous too!

One of the couple’s best friends officiated the wedding. Before the bride’s big entrance, they had a sparkly flower boy making his entrance too – everyone loved that moment! The ceremony was heartfelt and emotional, but light and fun at the same time and that really set the tone for the rest of the day.

During the Italian-style cocktail hour, we had some family and friends photos at the ceremony area, and then moved with the bride and groom to the shorefront of Mandello: the pre-sunset light was simply spectacular and helped us achieve amazing photos.

After the speeches and dinner, it was time for another old Hollywood staple: the champagne tower, made fun and contemporary by the guests holding sparkles and the couple’s favorite songs.

Jenna and Brian had quite a party, too: everyone had a great time on the dance floor and even brought out some soft light batons that lit up the night even more!
