Villa Lario Resort wedding, Lake Como, Italy
Melanie & Daniel Begin Forever Together at Lake Como, Italy
The glorious lakeside scenery of Villa Lario Resort provided the perfect backdrop for a day of celebration and love. Melanie and Daniel invited friends and family to experience their perfect day together as they pledged forever to each other under a clear blue sky.
Lake Como weddings are always spectacular, but it seemed that the sun shone specially to highlight the smiles on the couple’s faces. As the strains of a favorite song, ‘Latch,’ played by violin and harp, Melanie’s father walked her up the aisle. White rose petals dappled the green lawns as towering floral arrangements bordered the spot where Melanie and Daniel said their ‘I dos.’ The ceremony performed by Uncle Peter was only the beginning of the unforgettable day.
Amid smiles and well wishes, the couple made their way to the high terrace for photos and the romantic first dance in the veranda room. The high arched doorways opened up to a stunning scene as the sun sank below the mountains on the opposite side of the lake. As speeches were made, our Lake Como wedding planner made sure that everything was arranged just as the couple wanted.
The rustic elegance theme used plenty of natural wood, sparkling glass, and white floral accents in everything from the table decorations to the serving dishes on the long hors d'oeuvre table. Gentlemen had the option to enjoy high-quality cigars while the music played, and guests mingled. A sit-down dinner rounded out the culinary extravaganza of the evening, but that was just one part of the glorious celebration after the ceremony.
Every wonderful wedding tradition made Melanie and Daniel’s day one to remember forever. The speeches by father and sisters demonstrated the love shared by all. The mother-son and father-daughter dances set the stage for togetherness. DJ music invited all the guests to get up on their feet and join in.
Throughout the reception, guests enjoyed a never-ending flow of delicious appetizers and a variety of drinks. These included fruit mocktails, refreshing cocktails, spumante, beer, and soft drinks so everyone could find a favorite. The guests relaxed at tables decorated with elegant bouquets of white roses and yellow lilies, tiny sprigs of baby’s breath, and fresh lemons. The bright fruits are common symbols of longevity, friendship, and love in Italy.
As the sun sank low in the western sky, the flickering light of candles on the tables provided light for the guests. Brilliant white sprays of lights around the veranda mimicked the towering floral arrangements displayed during the ceremony. It was the perfect setting for a romantic cake-cutting ceremony with the simple yet elegant three-tier dessert.
The day that started hours earlier with a wedding ceremony full of deep meaning and vows ended with a bang as fireworks lit up the night sky. The colors and light, flashes and fanfare brought an explosion of excitement to the party. Live saxophone music, more dancing, and an open bar carried the couple and their guests into the night.

For Melanie and Daniel, the flowers and fireworks, soft music and Prosecco seating charts provided the perfect backdrop to their declarations of forever love.
