The bond that forms between me and the couples I assist always goes beyond the mere professional relationship. It evolves into a connection based on empathy and mutual trust, fundamental elements that allow me to fully understand their desires for the special day.
Lelde and Brad‘s wedding is one of those cases where I developed a particularly deep bond with the couple, especially with Lelde. Sweet and determined, she closely followed the preparations for her wedding, and we were able to develop a great connection. Our tea ritual, which we shared every afternoon in my office for a week, became a precious moment where we shared joys, concerns, and anticipations about the big day.
Lelde and Brad chose the Hotel Imperiale as their accommodation during their destination wedding, but it was Villa del Balbianello, a true gem on the shores of Lake Como, that hosted their celebration. Chosen multiple times as a film set for internationally renowned movies due to its charm, it contributed to adding a touch of magic and romance to Lelde and Brad’s wedding as well.
Not only the couple but also the guests had the opportunity to fully experience the magic of Lake Como, making their entrance to Villa del Balbianello by boat. The ceremony, intimate and romantic, took place in the wonderful Loggia Durini, the most suggestive setting of the residence. An aisle adorned with beautiful flowers, expertly arranged by The Blonde Flower, guided Lelde to the altar, turning the ceremony moment into a true dream, enveloped in a magical atmosphere.
After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the Loggia itself, before continuing the celebrations at the reception with an elegant and refined dinner. After dinner, everyone moved to the marquee, where they danced and celebrated until late into the night.
