High Fashion Lake Como Autumnal Inspiration
An intimate fashion-forward bridal editorial at Lake Como is the order of the day today. Modern elegance with a hint of high fashion. This well-styled bridal editorial with charming Lake Como in the background is what wedding dreams are made of. Lake Como will always be one of the best places to get married, with its dreamy landscape and atmosphere and gorgeous venues. Fine Art Curation members Gionata Russo Weddings, together with fine art photographer Michelle Wever Photography, and his creative team have chosen Villa Pizzo, a true gem, full of history and with the biggest garden on the lake. The magnificent views have been enchanting celebrities, Hollywood stars and fashion photographers for years. This inspiration is the perfect fit for a couple seeking an intimate yet stylish elopement for their wedding day...
"The idea was to create timeless yet edge wedding inspiration perfectly blended with villa’s intimate corners and dreamy atmosphere. We kept the color palette rich, from softest pins to burned oranges with hues of sunny yellows, and the details clean and elegant. The whimsical stationary suit custom made by Shasta Bell Calligraphy featured handcrafted paper, classic calligraphy and floral illustrations to reflect an essence of the venue.
For the mise en place we chose classic white china, crystals with a golden rim and matt gold cutlery. Each place had a napkin in deep terracotta hue and a tassel to match the color, an elegant menu and place-card. Floral compositions by Sfumature di Cipria brought texture and warmth to the table. The ceremony was held in Italian garden facing dreamy view on the lake. Rich floor compositions guided the walkway to the fountain where our love birds exchanged their vows. The bride held statement wedding bouquet featuring long stemmed flowers. The makeup and hair was done by BLBS Management and the whole bridal look was beautifully styled and accessorized by Nea Milano.
We wanted to create timeless yet edgy woman, keeping textures clean and colors natural and bringing our most favorite bridal trends for 2021: puff sleeves, short dresses and pants. We have chosen a stylish jumpsuit by Viktor&Rolf Mariage and bold golden tone accessories for the welcome cocktail look. We were thrilled to have spectacular gowns by Andrea Sedici for our bridal looks. The ceremony dress was both modern and romantic and perfectly matched the mood. Playful and edgy short cocktail dress for the final was a true cherry on the cake. For both look we have chosen timeless pearl drop earrings with a modern twist by Nea Milano.
The groom was dressed befitting the occasion. Both looks were made to measure by Sanvenero: effortless light color suite for the cocktail and timeless black tuxedo for the ceremony. We have chosen handmade cocktails by Opifico77, for the welcome moment and as wedding favours to bring an Italian taste with a innovative approach on set. The whole day was beautifully captured by fine art videographer Roberto from Merak Studio."
