The Story

Katherine and Gabriel’s wedding at Villa Balbiano on Lake Como was a breathtaking celebration of love that transcended borders. This extraordinary event brought together a couple and all their guests from Cuba, who now called the USA their home.

The bride, Katherine, had always dreamed of an elegant and delicate wedding, and her vision was masterfully brought to life. The ceremony was a symphony of white, blush, and coffee colors, creating an atmosphere of pure romance. Flowers and me, the talented florists, ensured that every corner was adorned with stunning floral arrangements, setting the perfect backdrop for this special day.

One of the most enchanting moments was the entertainment provided by the Krystal Kuartett during the ceremony and cocktail hour. Dressed in beautiful hand-made green dresses with flowers delicately added to their attire, they mesmerized the guests with their musical prowess.

The dinner reception was a masterpiece of personalization. The tables were adorned with a unique green-patterned tablecloth that added a touch of whimsy and sophistication. Blush underplates and menus designed and hand-painted by Lettera Elle added a personal and artistic touch to each place setting. Fully flowered chandeliers gave that luxe touch that the dinner reception needed.

Capturing every magical moment was the renowned photographer Roberta Facchini, whose talent ensured that every emotion, smile, and tear was immortalized. Videographer Danilo Grassi added another layer of artistry, preserving the essence of the day in a beautiful cinematic masterpiece.

Katherine was a vision of elegance in her Ines Di Santo dress, captivating the attention of every single guest as she made her grand entrance at the ceremony. Her dream wedding had become a reality, a testament to love, artistry, and the fusion of two cultures celebrating their union on the picturesque shores of Lake Como.
