September 3rd: Mary and James’ wedding – Malcesine, Lake Garda
We move then to Lake Garda. On September 3rd Mary and James got married at amazing Castello di Malcesine. They came from Kansas – USA and never visited the lake before. So all their wedding was an amazing surprise. A wedding for two with just two witnesses and photographer Patrick McCaffey and his staff.
Our planners Angela and Katiuscia followed the event for us!

We close the post with the last wedding of the month, just at the end of the month on 30th September. Another lovely event for Alessandra and Veronica at Villa del Balbianello.
Arum and Seok are a wonderful Korean couple living in New York who chose Lake Como as their wedding destination. They fell in love with the area when, in occasion of their vacations, they had the chance to do an engagement photo session here. Choosing Lake Como was a must! They had a symbolic blessing at La Loggia of Villa del Balbianello and their reception in their new events area arranged with a wonderful marquee that could be even heated and also used as a normal outdoor dances space.
What a month!
Do you think our team needs some relax? No way! We will come back with some more weddings for October… of course not many as we had in Summer but you will see some more couples who chose our Lakes for their wedding.
Summer 2013 was another great wedding season! We take the chance to say a huge thanks to all our couples, who chose our team and shared with us their special day; to professionals who worked with us (photographers, florists, musicians, decorators etc) sharing their professionalism and enthusiasm, to our tireless planners and to our likewise tireless webmaster who puts together all our efforts in these beautiful posts.
A huge thanks to everyone!
