A Rose-Gold Fantasy: An incredible Night Wedding in Villa del Balbianello, Lake Como
One of our favorite weddings of this past wedding season – Ashley and Joe, a beautiful and incredibly sweet couple in the stunning shores of Lake Como.
A dream wedding in one of our favorite locations – ever: Villa del Balbianello, in all its splendor.
Between the shores of Lake Como, get ready to fall in love with this amazing, super romantic destination wedding!
Ah, these two!
Ashley and Joe are a beautiful couple coming from Miami. They fell in love with Lake Como from the first moment they saw it, and they knew it had the place to be!
Our day with them started in the wonderful Grand Hotel Tremezzo, where both Ashley and Joe got ready surrounded by their closest friends.
From the very first moment we walked into their rooms, we fell in love with the vibe of their wedding!
This lovely couple, helped by The Lake Como Wedding Planner, wanted to have a dark floral and rose gold theme – and guys, what a choice!
All the floral decorations, designed by Ratti Flora, were gorgeous. We normally shoot many wedding details, and it’s even better when they are so beautiful!
From our very first messages, Ashley told us how much she loves her grandpa, who couldn’t attend the wedding as he is 90 years old. She kept him close to her heart though, through a small Polaroid photo. When we saw it in her bedroom, we knew we had to photograph it!
After she got ready with her beautifully, Bordeaux-dressed bridesmaids, one of our favorite moments happened.
It was up time for Ashley and Joe’s first look in the garden of Grand Hotel Tremezzo – the two of them were so happy, so excited and emotional that their love spread through the air.
After the first look, Joe and the wedding guests reached Villa del Balbianello, the location of the ceremony and the following reception.
Ok, let’s start by saying this: we absolutely love Villa del Balbianello.
Ashley and Joe had a night wedding ceremony on the famous terrace of the villa.
The whole terrace was decorated with dark flowers, and the atmosphere was just spectacular! I couldn’t imagine a more wonderful location for such an intimate, heartfelt ceremony.
As we were having a small, night couple shoot, the guests were enjoying the aperitif and starting to party. Then all the wedding party walked to the greenery of Balbianello, where the dinner took place.
There we found one of our favorite wedding decors this year: a triumph of rose-gold, dark flowers and geometric shapes that blew our minds!
The Italian-style dinner was simply perfect, and as a sweet ending of it there came one of Marco Failla‘s famous cakes: a gorgeous, delicious Italian Millefoglie.
Then it was up time for the party, and what a party!
Our favorite moment was their first dance, and it was so beautiful we had to show you in its own video:
