Rawan and Wael are a Lebanese married couple who, after celebrating their marriage in their home country, they decided to end wedding festivities with a beautiful reception in Cernobbio on Lake Como.
CERNOBBIO is a delightful and international town. It is located on the shores of Lake Como, not too far from Como town.
Rawan and Wael choose to arrange their party on August 2012, when the warmth of the summer illuminates the day and the light blue colour of the sky and the lake. At the sunset the sun still fires the landscape of orange tones that slowly fade into the night with the sky studded with stars. An ideal setting for an unforgettable day at Villa Cernobbio, a stunning venue with its gardens and terraces overlooking the lake.
But let’s take a step back and begin to follow the couple since their arrival.
The evening before the couple relaxed in Moltrasio, another typical village by Lake Como. They stayed in beautiful Imperial Hotel, along with the other guests. They appreciated not only their beautiful rooms but also the surrounding gardens, pampering spa at their disposal and delicacies of the restaurant.
Within the hotel, Rawan began the preparation of the traditional ritual with her mother, sister and some closer friends. After makeup and hairstyle, a bright and smiling bride wore her beautiful white dress created by Vera Wang, the famous wedding dresses designer.
Meanwhile, a few doors down, the groom was getting ready too. While, awaiting beginning of big celebrations, all guests enjoyed and took some relaxing time by the pool.
Glamorous and elegant, Rawan and Wael arrived at Villa Cernobbio, where they enjoyed a couple of moments of true romance embraced by the magical atmosphere created by their love.
Short after their relatives and friends joined them. All were involved in a memorable photo session that took place by the gardens of the villa, which open to the lake with its picturesque shores and splendid view.
At 5.30pm, with the arrival of all other guests, the real celebration began.
Everything was perfect and the party started with the arrival of the happy couple on a tractor, driven by the groom. A toast to their union opened the cocktail.
Delicious drinks and food was served and a fun photobooth made all the guests crazy! Guests took humorous shots, playing with frames, masks and a slate on which to write a personal memory of the day.
Then bride and groom and their guests reached their tables on the terrace overlooking the lake. A wonderful dinner was waiting for them. Large vintage style chandeliers, glasses, vases, flowers refined in the shades of white, peach and ivory made the room simply amazing. Great food, speeches and toasts accompanied the dinner. The sky went from light blue to dark blue and the coloured lights were lit. Then the DJ animated he night with music and dances.
But first, a big tiered wedding cake, decorated with beautiful flowers, again in shades of white, ivory and peach, was waiting for bride and groom and their guests on the terrace for the traditional cutting.
Entertainment and dances continued until late at night. Then a comfortable transfer service drove the happy and satisfied group to the their hotel.
A special thank you to Photo27 for the beautiful pictures!
