Getting married in Como Lake
Jessica and Ryan came to Italy from sunny Los Angeles, California, to celebrate their wedding day in one of the most charming and historical places in Italy: Bellagio, the “pearl of Lake of Como”.
Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, the location where the wedding has been held, has got a long history, it was a luxurious holiday villa that a nobleman, Count Frizzoni, built at the wish of his beloved wife.
A Villa built for love: the perfect place to celebrate a wedding.
A sophisticated and romantic wedding is what you’re dreaming of?
Bellagio, a small and typical village in Lake of Como, is the answer.
Getting married by the water at sunset, with the sunlight reflecting on the water of the lake, creates a truly unforgettable suspended atmosphere.
Then, after the celebrations, having the reception in such a unique and historical building like Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, in its charming ballrooms, will keep the atmosphere even more sophisticated and elegant.
Wedding in Bellagio, Lake of Como
Jessica and Ryan said yes with one of the most incredible backdrops you can find in Italy, the Lake of Como. The light of the sunset, the thousand shades of the color of the water, the typical Northern Italian architecture of the 19th century and the magnificent plants of the villa’s private garden gave to the moment a rare feeling of beauty and peace.
Later, after a delicious aperitif with traditional Italian flavours on the villa’s terrace, the newlyweds joined their guests for the reception in the precious Salone Reale, surrounded by its unique crystal chandeliers and antique golden decorative stucco.
