Wedding planners Chicweddingitaly thoroughly prepared everything down to the last detail, bringing the happy couple’s wishes to reality, emphasizing the incredible atmosphere of Como. Atmosphere that was expertly captured by the steady hands and visionary talent of the wedding videographers of Studio D’Essai. The great Sally Mann once said that “photographs open doors into the past, but they also allow a look in the future”, and even just by glancing at their masterful work, it is easy to see that what lies ahead of Robert and Natalie is nothing but unparalleled bliss.
The first morning in Como, the soon-to-be husband and wife enjoyed a runabout ride on the stunning lake, setting out from Villa del Balbianello. As the vintage luxury Riva sailed the crystal waters overlooked by the Alps and surrounded by the prestigious villas, the couple had a chance to breathe in the unique atmosphere, the delicate colors, the smells and the sounds of one of the most enchanting landscapes Italy has to offer. Many celebrities decided to make Como their home, in the present or in the past. George Clooney, John Lennon, Gianni Versace, Madonna, Sylvester Stallone and football superstar Lionel Messi are only a few names among those who found delight in the beauties the lake. In the words of Oscar winner Robin Williams “When you look at the sky over lake Como, it’s clear that God exists”.
The traditional rehearsal dinner was hosted in the sixteenth-century residence Villa D’Este, where Robert and Natalie enjoyed a relaxing night with their families and closest friends and thanked them for their help and support. Later, they took a walk in the surrounding park wrapped in the sunset. A mix of ancient and modern, the garden of Villa D’Este is a 25-acre wonderland made by colors so intense they seem to be escaped from a painting. And here, the videographers once again worked their wonders, recording moment of spontaneity and happiness that will last forever.
Finally, the big day. At Villa Sola Cabiati, the guests were in a frenzy. The air was filled with anticipation, as the wonderful bride and husband-to-be were getting ready for the greatest moment in their lives. At Chiesa di San Lorenzo, in Tremezzo, Robert could barely hold in the happiness as the beautiful lady walked down the aisle in white. Dressed in a refined Dolce & Gabbana wedding dress, Natalie’s smile shone brighter than anything else. Following the catholic ceremony, they exchanged their rings and shared their first kiss as a family.
Villa Sola Cabiati was the perfect venue for this small wedding at Lake Como. A place that combines the elegance of the late Baroque style with the thrill of a vibrant new era. Robert and Natalie stared wide-eyed as the baker decorated the wedding cake on the spot. After dark, the newly-weds and the guests were able to admire the fireworks over the lake, and then proceeded to dance the night away. The wedding videographers worked tirelessly in order to capture that perfect mood. The morning after, in a fantastic sunny day, husband and wife hosted their white party at Villa Sola Cabiati. As the name suggests, they were not the only ones to wore white, but also the guests, as a symbol of the purity of love. An imperial table was set in the majestic garden, where the brunch was held, accompanied by a dj-set that performed live for the crowd. After three days of celebrations, one thing is certain: in the minds of everyone present, the image of true love will forever be intertwined with Robert and Natalie’s Italian wedding.
