It doesn’t get much more romantic than Lake Como. I mean… there’s a reason why everyone from James Bond to Anakin Skywalker to George Clooney have found themselves here. It’s alluring, magnetic… magic. So we can see why Nicole and Colton chose to host their refined Lake Como wedding at Villa Pizzo in particular. The enchantingly historic venue boasts some of the prettiest views on the Lake – a detail Elias Kordelakos captured oh so well. The mood was refined elegance meets modern garden, and Italian wedding planner Eventoile pulled it off in major ways. From the floating rose + anthurium ceremony backdrop crafted by Chiara Sperti to the crystal chandeliers dripping with greenery in the courtyard reception, we’d say Nicole and Colton’s destination fête was an affair to remember.
Villa Pizzo is one of the most renowned villas of Lake Como for a destination wedding in Italy. What stands out at this wedding is the positive energy of the couple and the lightning-fast reaction of the planner and the florist. As the wedding day began with sunshine, a thunderstorm came by and everything had to be rearranged inside in no time!!
The couple is madly in love and wouldn’t let anything get in the way, so they kept their positive vibes and smiles on throughout the night. It’s a fine example for every bride/couple who is getting worried about the weather on their special day.
Plus, Elias Kordelakos was lucky to capture one of the most emotional First Looks, as the groom couldn’t hold back the tears of joy when he saw the bride for the first time.
The beauty of this Lake Como wedding at Villa Pizzo is utterly surreal. From the fairytale lake views to the reportage style moments caught on film, Nicole + Colton’s destination nuptials are ones we won’t soon forget! See more of the best wedding venues in Italy here next!
