Our gorgeous bride Andrea and our charming groom Chant tied the knot on the shores of glamorous Como Lake in June 2019.
A gathering of quasi 100 Lebanese and Armenian invitees between friends and family travelling from Lebanon, the Middle East and Europe.
The launch of festivities was the prewedding Italian festa in a jewel small little town Cernobbio, on the shores of the lake, accompanied by a mix of Armenian Lebanese music and a gorgeous Dolce Gabana dress worn by the bride. Not to forget the extra-ordinary royal headpiece from bbloomed.
I love how we used the Sorrento pastel ceramics watercolors and incorporated them into almost every element of the decoration. From the menu design, to the colour selection of the glass bottles, candle colours, cocktail napkins, touch of olive branches, selection and colours of flowers, scent of lemons. It was truly everything the bride was dreaming of.
And here comes the big day!
Exclusive as the bride is with her colourful eyes, she wanted a soft rappel of this colour in her bouquet.
A picturesque ceremony celebrated by the majestic water fountain of Como Lake. The tunes of the Armenian soprano, the Arabic hymns and the Italian classical music made of this moment an unforgettable one.
Following the ceremony, the guests moved to the colourful gardens of the Villa on the beats of a traditional Armenian Italian band enjoying a glass of the exquisite prosecco Bellini and savouring the Italian delicacies of the Lombardia cuisine.
For the wedding theme and décor, the bride was a great lover of white, crystal and sparkles. One of my favorite parts of planning the wedding was creating a mood board to help pull together all the table details the bride wanted to include.
Delphinium flower was the signature of this wedding, grand, elegant, chic and different portraying the character of our beautiful couple.
The party started with a tasteful show by the band “Swanband” who flew in from France to perform at the wedding reception. Dancing continued till dawn and finished by the best Arabic dancing beats.
