Lake Como Wedding from Andrea Kuehnis

We all know that Italian weddings are magical.  I mean, one look at this darling Lake Como wedding and it takes about five seconds to know that is true.  But dive even further into this pretty, pretty affair and it becomes something sooo much more than a drop-dead gorgeous wedding; it’s a day that is literally overflowing with heartwarming moments and smiling faces, a day that is all about the l.o.v.e and sharing that love with awesome friends and family.  See it all captured by Andrea Kuehnis right here.


From Andrea Kuehnis… This Wedding took place over three days, with a cocktail night, a rehearsal dinner and the actual wedding day on the beautiful villa Balbianello in Italy. The couple, Mallory and Travis, are both US citizens and world travellers, but live in Zurich, Switzerland. They had their whole family and friends invited to be part of this unforgettable, fantastic event.

And believe us when we tell you that these two things are quite possibly the most perfect combination we’ve ever laid eyes on.

Lake Como Wedding by Corbin Gurkin

Ciao Ciao SMPers. Hope you all had a lovely, relaxing weekend because we have a jam packed day of wedding greatness and you will need a full tank of energy for these pretties. See, Mondays aren’t that bad. In fact, they just might be the new Friday. Up first is a ridiculously gorgeous wedding at Lake Como from destination wedding photographer Corbin Gurkin. I happen to have a extra special place in my heart for this photography genius because she shot my wedding so I know first hand, she is the bees knees. And this wedding, ohhh this wedding. It is bringing the romance and the pretty. Be prepared for a rapidly beating heart and of course,you can always find more glorious goodness from Corbin in the gallery.

When Mark and I first started looking into places to be married we envisioned being near water. After visiting a few locations in California, my brother, Alex, mentioned looking into Italy. Villa Balbianello in Lake Como was Colpo di Fulmine (love at first sight) as the Italians would say! We knew as soon as we stepped on the property that it was the place for us. The ambience was perfect – we were in love with the deep blues of the water, the intense mountains, the gorgeous villas along the shores and the incredible gardens. It truly is a magical location! Bellagio, where we stayed before the wedding day, was the ideal little town the guests to enjoy a true Italian experience – quaint cafes, stunning views, truly an amazing place for a holiday.

My favorite colors are red, pink, green and silver. Lisa Hoffman (Ceci NY) helped me to find the specific shades of those colors when we were planning out the save-the-dates and invitations. We decided to go with just the pink, green and silver and work the red in through floral arrangements. Once we had those colors chosen we maintained it through all aspects of the wedding planning. Laura Hooper, who designed all my accessories paid specific attention to the colors as well as what had already been put in place. She created the most amazing maps, which I was able to use on totes (given as gifts to my bridesmaids) and to be given as keepsakes. She also used the same color green and silver on all of our menus and place cards. In doing so, she made everything look elegant, polished and consistent
