Roxanne and Nic’s wedding weekend started with a pre-wedding celebration in the picturesque town of Argegno. This event began with a unique and romantic touch. Guests arrived on the other side of the lake by boat, setting the stage for an unforgettable evening.
Roxanne’s choice of decor, inspired by her favorite cocktail, the spritz, added a vibrant and playful element to the celebration. The use of the spritz’s signature colors infused the event with energy and style.
The tables were beautifully adorned with elegant monovases, These vases held striking arrangements of eryngium and open tulips, carefully hand-painted. The addition of orange sweets in small transparent vases provided a delightful and whimsical touch.
The wedding day at the private villa in Bellagio was nothing short of magical. What made this event particularly challenging and ultimately rewarding for us as planners was the choice of colors that the couple decided to incorporate into their special day. These difficult colors, including rusty, blush and blue, when expertly managed, led to a perfect result.
Following a traditional Persian ceremony with the customary Sofreh Aghd, which was a stunning display of symbolic items and cultural significance, the couple embarked on a boat tour during the enchanting sunset. This not only added a romantic touch but also allowed them to take in the breathtaking views of Lake Como.
Despite the complexity of the color palette, the wedding’s decor and arrangements came together harmoniously, creating a visual feast for the eyes. The rich and diverse hues, although initially challenging to match, ultimately contributed to a unique and captivating atmosphere that left a lasting impression on all the guests.
The dinner reception was a truly magical affair. The couple’s choice of rusty blush and light blue tones created an elegant and romantic atmosphere that perfectly complemented the stunning lakeside setting.
The centerpiece of the evening was the beautifully set dining tables adorned beautiful floral compositions, blu vases and twisted candles. These candles added a touch of whimsy and romance to the tablescape, casting a warm and inviting glow over the entire reception.

These napkins not only added a personalized touch to the place settings but also tied in seamlessly with the overall design scheme. The couple’s attention to detail and their choice of this unique pattern showcased their impeccable taste and creativity.
