A Pastel Dream in the shores of Lake Como: Wedding at Villa Regina Teodolinda





An intimate and super romantic Lake Como Wedding at Villa Regina Teodolinda


To say this wedding was a dream is an understatement! Ellie and Garrett brought their closest friends and family, thirty people, to the sunlit shores of Lake Como to celebrate their love in an overflow of pastel colors, white flowers, and a sip or two of well-deserved Limoncello. Ellie’s dream was for her wedding to be featured on Style Me Pretty, and her attention to detail and gorgeous love story made it happen. Enjoy!



A Pastel Dream in the shores of Lake Como: Wedding at Villa Regina Teodolinda


In the heart of Lake Como, in the scenery of the gorgeous Villa Regina Teodolinda, Ellie and Garrett exchanged vows in a wedding that can only be described as a fusion of elegance, intimacy, and a touch of Bridgerton-inspired romance. Surrounded by their 30 closest friends and family members, the couple’s special day unfolded against the backdrop of a sun-kissed afternoon, perfectly complementing the pastel hues that adorned both the villa and their guests.

Villa Regina Teodolinda is an exquisite, intimate villa located in Laglio, Lake Como. Its pastel colors were the perfect match to Ellie’s vision; as per her interview for Style Me Pretty, “I was obsessed with Bridgerton while planning the wedding and wanted that vibrant yet soft color vibe for our wedding,” Ellie shared. “I wanted to enhance the colors of the villa, which is why we matched the moms’ dresses to the shutters and the bridesmaids’ dresses to the flowers in the garden.”

The bride’s gown, Adeline by Rita Vinieris, held a special significance beyond its exquisite design. “I immediately started crying when I looked in the mirror, and more tears began flowing when she told me the dress was called Adeline, which is my grandmother’s name. It was meant to be!”

True to the spirit of Bridgerton, the couple infused their ceremony and reception with music that resonated with their love story. A string quartet serenaded guests with covers of modern classics, while Ellie made her entrance to a dreamy rendition of “I Will Always Love You,” setting the tone for an enchanting celebration. Their first dance to “Il Mondo,” inspired by their favorite movie, About Time, further underscored the magical atmosphere of the evening.

Among the many cherished details of the day were two that held special significance for Ellie. The couple’s beloved dogs made a cameo on their RSVP cards, a touching tribute to their beloved four-legged friends. Additionally, the father-daughter dance took an unexpected turn as Ellie and her father surprised guests with a spirited polka, a joyful nod to their Polish heritage.

The ending of the day really sealed the deal: after a couple of hours of heavy rain at night – that no one was really bothered about since we were dancing inside! – Ellie and Garrett walked to the closest beach and jumped into the cold waters of the Lake. That was the most unique and funny wedding send-off of all time!
