Jordan and Derek’s wedding weekend is one we won’t easily forget. It was a whirlwind of unique ideas, a different theme for each day, and a couple that’s hard to impress. The festivities kicked off with a boat party on the Concordia Boat, a historic gem on Lake Como built in the early 20th century, setting the tone for an unforgettable celebration.

The first day’s dress code was “sunset color,” and every guest perfectly complemented the boat with shades of pink and orange. The decor mirrored the theme, featuring delicate tones of pink and vibrant hues of orange throughout the setup. This colorful palette was not only visually striking but also created a warm, inviting atmosphere. Matching the decor, the food was crafted using high-quality Italian products in pink and orange hues. From appetizers to desserts, every dish was a feast for both the eyes and the palate. The beverages were equally impressive, highlighted by our signature cocktail, the “Sunset Cloud.” This delightful pink drink perfectly matched the theme, offering a refreshing and stylish toast to the couple. One of the most memorable moments of the evening was when the bride stepped out in a beautifully modernized version of her grandmother’s dress. This sentimental touch added a layer of family heritage and elegance to the occasion, capturing everyone’s hearts and setting a romantic tone for the rest of the weekend.

 

On Day 2 of Jordan and Derek’s wedding weekend, the celebration reached new heights at the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, the largest and most prestigious hotel in Bellagio. This historic venue, dating back to the 19th century, has hosted royalty, artists, and celebrities, making it a perfect backdrop for their enchanting wedding. The theme of “Glacial Romance” beautifully blended the bride’s love for the color blue with the groom’s affection for penguins. The ceremony took place with a breathtaking lake view, featuring an aisle that transitioned from white to blue, adorned with delicate and unique flowers. The mirrored aisle created an icy effect, enhancing the enchanting atmosphere. The centerpiece of the décor was a striking arrangement of blue hydrangeas, the bride’s favorite flower, setting it apart from the rest of the floral designs. For the cocktail hour, an elegant setup echoed the theme with customized blue-patterned fabrics. A central island recreated a penguin habitat, and “living penguins” roamed the area, serving blue and white cocktails to the guests. Dinner took on a different ambiance with tables designed to resemble infinity symbols, highlighting the timelessness of the couple’s love. The base of the tables was gold, reminiscent of the hotel’s royal hall. Guests were welcomed by the enchanting sounds of Victor Angelov on his electric violin, accompanied by opera singers who performed “That’s Amore,” the couple’s favorite song. After dinner, the celebration moved to another location, where guests danced the night away with a stunning view of the lake, bringing a magical end to an unforgettable day.

 

On Day 3, Jordan and Derek bid farewell to their guests with a delightful pool party, rounding off the incredible wedding weekend with a touch of fun and relaxation. The pool area was transformed into a vibrant and inviting space, featuring a homemade gelato cart that served refreshing treats throughout the day. An authentic Pizza Ape car, manned by skilled Neapolitan chefs, offered a variety of delicious pizzas, catering to every guest’s taste. The pool itself was adorned with giant roses and floating floral arrangements, creating a picturesque and festive atmosphere. As the day drew to a close, the guests joined the newlyweds for a friendly tennis match, wrapping up the weekend with joy and camaraderie.
