Jen + Jason hopped over to Lake Como for By the Lake to workshop with creatives in one of the dreamiest places on earth! The shoot took place at Villa Regina Teodolinda. The team wanted to bring a California feeling to Italy while keeping the elegance of this beautiful, moody lake.
The bride was wearing a gold lace shining dress with long sleeves, a Venice drop veil from Emily Riggs, and a long, striking necklace and stunning ring. Andrea, the groom, arrived by boat from Bellagio. He was radiant in a rich burgundy handmade suit from Bergamo, provided by the innovative Linnèo Archivable Clothing. So elegant and perfectly paired with her golden dress.
The ceremony was set up to view the lake so that you can almost feel to touch the mountains on the other side. The combination of different chairs and couches helped to create a unique style by using the villa’s actual furniture pieces.
The table was an example of a new era where you can mix different elements and still have a unique and elegant setup. The hand dyed silk from tono & co offered a touch of autumn in this October inspiration. Gold peony shoes were a perfect match for the dress.
The candy table is a very traditional Italian touch! Pastiglie Leone, since 1857, is one of the most famous producers of yummy Italian candy and gave us a nice change from the usual Italian confetti table. The cake was by Qualcosa di dolce and was inspired by the pattern of the walls inside the villa.
