A special wedding event organised on the Italian Lake Maggiore
She is English, he is Italian, they live in Florida, and they have chosen to return to Italy for their great day. On the enchanting Maggiore lakeshore, the couple has celebrated its special wedding day with friends and relatives.
#Special venue on the Lake
The choice of “Villa Rusconi-Clerici” as a location for the wedding has made the magical day even more special. The villa is an old building of the end ‘800 with an English garden. It is located on the shores of the Gulf of Borromeo. At the center of the verdant expanse, there is an elegant wrought-iron pavilion typical of the style of the greenhouses of the end ‘800. The amazing greenhouse is an ideal location for outdoor receptions. At the same time, Villa Rusconi-Clerici, inside offers spaces finely furnished, enriched by antique statues and granite pillars, the wine-cellars can host unique events.
To personalize this location of great elegance, the couple have chosen as a symbol color of their big day the pink-fuchsia. A high-impact color, carefully dosed through all its nuances and often mixed with classic and always perfect white.
#The colour palette
Also the location was “dressed” with color chosen by the couple. Both in the space reserved for the ceremony and for that of the reception, there were in-style decors. For the wedding ceremony the groom waited for the bride under the splendid wrought iron gazebo. Roses in various shades of pink and with white tulle veils decorated the structure. For the guests, chairs dressed in white, with a twist of color-themed ribbon with a pink rose placed on the lawn.
In this magnificent setting, the arrival of the bride! Close to the arm of her brother, the bride made her entrance. She arrived on a boat after having crossed the magnificent Italian Lake Maggiore. Dressed in a white lace mermaid dress by Pronovias, the bride has thus reached the groom under the gazebo. In her hands a pink and fuchsia bouquet closed by buttons in fabric.
At the end of the ceremony, the guests enjoyed the aperitif. It took place on the lawn in front of the villa and inside because of the rain. An elegant aperitif with various islands for different and delicious finger food, and open kitchen.
For dinner time, round tables and chairs covered in white were placed under a large pavilion in wrought iron and white fabrics. The centerpieces were floral decorations in shades of fuchsia and pink with candles of various heights with the same colors.
#Heart touching speeches and the couple’s first dance
During the reception of this special wedding on the Italian lake, there were two many exciting moments for the bride and groom and their guests. Heartfelt speeches of the guests and a video created by the couple telling their love story.
At the end of the dinner, it was time for the unforgettable first dance of the bride and groom. Then the very sweet moment of the wedding cake: an American style cake, created by four white layers. On every layer, there were lying fresh fruit decorations and shining stars.
The special wedding day continued with a long evening with dancing in the fascinating cellars of Villa Rusconi-Clerici.
Two hearts joined once again in a perfect and unique setting of Lake Maggiore, in an exclusive location as Villa Rusconi-Clerici: a marriage of elegance and romance.
