Dreamy destination wedding shoots are just one of the many things we love about what we see every day  on Style Me Pretty... our imaginations soar to all new heights! The amazing vendors who pull together all the details in the most romantic and do-able ways are our heroes. Today's romantic wedding inspiration shoot, planned and designed by Sweet Love & Confettis, will take you to the shores of Lake Como, to Villa Balbiano. From there, we'll let the images from Maddy Christina and film from Stephane M tell the rest of the story!
From Maddy Christina... This styled shoot is above all else, a beautiful study in contrasts. We had the honor of being able to organize our shoot at one of the most beautiful locations on Lake Como, the Villa Balbiano. We wanted to create a refined, elegant and soft styled shoot... finding that perfect balance between Italy and the famous "French Touch".
Our color palette and textural elements contributed to the marriage of the French-Italian experience... brilliant shades of blue-green in the water and surrounding landscape contrasted beautifully with the velvety softness of the linens and stationery. The vibrancy of the fruit and floral design from Emily Alarcan in our tablescape played charmingly against the stone walkways and architectural elegance.  The three-tiered cake from Delicatesse Cake was a masterful combination of modern design and romantic imagination.  Brightly colored wisteria on the property served as the finishing touch for this extraordinary experience.
Our real life newlyweds came from Luxembourg to spend the day with us!
The beautiful stationery suite with hand-lettered calligraphy was designed by Callyane. From the adventures that began the moment our couple launched the Riva Boat trip to reach the famous Villa Balbiano... to the race for the perfect lighting under the harsh yet sometimes powerful Italian sun, it was a day filled with wonderful contrasts from the beginning. The French Touch in Italy from a truly united team!
Enjoy the day in it's entirety in this short film from Little Black Book cinematographer, Stephane M
