Wildly Romantic Lake Como Intimate Elopement

Here, the beautiful bride and stylish groom recaptured the memories they held for one another at the stunning Villa Balbiano where they met with the love letters that brought them together. The exquisite invitation suite by In Loft Calligraphy features a hand-drawn sketch of the Villa in a palette of deep purple hues, coordinating with the custom menus and place cards. Shades of purple, blues, with pops of magenta and black continue through the bride's lush bouquet, vintage accessories, peignoir set, and brocade shoes. Her Pronovias gown is adorned with romantic and subtle details, a beautiful train and a lace fabric that glistens in the sunlight. The chic groom, ever the artist, has his sketchbook in hand and a unique velvet accented suit. And, just because you are planning an elopement or a smaller wedding - does not mean that your table should be small on details. In fact, a wildly romantic Lake Como intimate elopement calls for creating the perfect opportunity to set a decadent table filled with family heirlooms or your latest finds from the local market -and, of course, abundant florals and candlelight. A sweet ending can also be a part of your elopement (not only in the form of a petite and delicious cake) - but, also in planning a new adventure like reserving a vintage boat for a sunset ride. All in all, planning an elopement is the opportunity to avoid an overcomplicated, more stressful, larger wedding - and, plan a wildly romantic adventure, large on sentimental details and focused on your love story.
