Cassidy & Cole
3 days wedding at Villa Balbiano Lake Como
With almost three acres of lawns and gardens, private access to the lake and two swimming pools, this luxurious estate is designed to meet the desires of the most discerning guests and is the ideal venue for weddings or other special events.
That’s right, there was a sky full of stars on the night of September 16, but the whole wedding was so bright that we are sure the two brightest stars were Cassidy and Cole, our wonderful bride and groom.
Looking at the pictures of this wonderful three-day event on Lake Como at Villa Balbiano, your eyes sparkle, inebriated by the shine and glitter that appears in every shot.
Elegance, preciousness, class, harmony, brilliance, … these are the adjectives that come to mind as we think back to the fabulous wedding, the special rehearsal dinner and the lovely brunch/pool party we held in September.
Mirrored tables cradling the view among the greenery of Villa Balbiano, large white candles, white flowers and chandeliers-all these details create a fairy-tale ambiance, a shimmer that inebriates and leaves you delighted.
Villa Balbiano is the perfect setting for these two stars, Cassidy and Cole, who “light up the path” (as in the famous Coldplay song) as they walked down the white aisle to the end, where they said their “yes” surrounded by friends and family.
And if the stars are magnificent, it’s also a bit thanks to the sky. Villa Balbiano, in fact, makes them brighter, more vivid and defined. It accentuates their beauty and makes them shine.
The setting of the dinner, along with the getting dark, shows us how the shine increases more and more.
The imperial table is gathered under a sky of string lights illuminating the smiling faces of the guests. The precious marble table matches perfectly with the candles (white and gray), floral arrangement (white roses in gray vases) and stationery (gray circular menus, white sealing wax with silver leaf flakes and calligraphed names on round mirrors).
We get the maximum explosion of light at the cake cutting, when the smiles of our two star guests merge with the drops of light from the fireworks, a fitting conclusion to this luxury and magical wedding on Lake Como.
