Wedding in the Lakes of Italy
“My husband and I knew we wanted a destination wedding, but we disagreed on the location and we were having a hard time deciding where to go. He wanted a place in the Caribbean and I was dreaming of a romantic wedding in Italy with an amazing view and excellent food. We decided to meet Nina from Ovet to help us look at the pros and cons of each destination. She was really helpful with her suggestions for both locations, but she understood that I wanted something different than a wedding down south. With her help we finally agreed and decided to have our wedding in Italy. The next step was to decide where in Italy! We knew that we wanted a place near the water. My husband and I both love the sea and the little towns along the mountain sides in Italy. Two years ago we had visited the Amalfi coast and we really loved that area of Italy. Therefore, we were leaning towards choosing that location. Nina came up with beautiful spots all over the Amalfi Coast, but she also suggested the lake region in northern Italy. Being of Italian descent I have visited Italy on multiple occasions and I had never visited the lake region even if I always wanted to go. Looking through the different places possible in this area, my husband and I both fell in love with this location, perfect scenery for an Italian wedding with the beautiful little towns along the lake and the majestic mountains in the background. We had finally decided, we were getting married at Lake Como. Getting married in Italy requires some planning! It’s different than down south because you are not dealing with a hotel that already has a wedding planner and that already offers different wedding packages. Not to mention all the paperwork that needs to be filled out.
Nina found an excellent wedding planner in Lake Como to help us with everything. Nina and Giorgia (the event planner) where with us every step of the way and helped us with every decision that needed to be taken care of, from the paperwork to choosing the exact location for the ceremony and reception and to all the other details like the photographer, the flowers, the wedding menu, etc. Our guests and we stayed in the charming town of Bellagio, but we had our civil wedding ceremony at Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo. A private boat took our guests and us from Bellagio to Tremezzo. We then had the privilege to say “I do” on the outdoor terrace of the majestic Villa Carlotta overlooking lake Como and beautiful Bellagio. We then were able to walk around the luscious gardens to take our wedding photos. For the wedding reception we headed back to Bellagio at the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, an amazing and elegant 5-star hotel. This hotel is very beautiful and the service is impeccable. All the staff members treated us like royalty. We had a small and intimate wedding with approximately 20 guests and there must have been almost the same number of servers waiting to all our needs. Our reception was held on a private terrace outside overlooking once again beautiful Lake Como. From the hors d’oeuvres to the wedding cake, everything was so savory, delicious and mouth-watering good! The hotel even offered us the night stay in one of their gorgeous rooms with a lake view! If you are dreaming of a destination wedding, I definitely recommend that you deal with Nina from Agence Ovet. She is professional and so sweet. She really wants you to have an amazing day! We could not have done it without her,”
“The honeymoon was amazing. The hotels were wonderful, especially the Lux Belle Mare resort. The staff, food, hotel grounds, and beaches at both hotels were great and the transfers to and from the hotels were well organized with very professional drivers. Thank you for making our honeymoon so very memorable,”
Everything We Could Have Ever Wanted
“We can’t thank you enough for everything that you did to help us get this thing organized! Here’s our feedback:
The venue was superb. It had absolutely everything we could have ever wanted, was extremely well stocked and well kept, beautiful grounds and very close proximity to many amazing Tuscan and Umbrian destinations.
Belinda and Peter were truly fantastic. They were on top of every detail and really helped make sure that everything ran perfectly (helped make numerous personalized arrangements, helped build our wedding arch, extremely pleasant people, so much so that we were thrilled to have them participate in our wedding – all our guests enjoyed their company and yet they were never intrusive).
Musicians were excellent and we had many compliments in their regard.
The food was good. The cocktail hour was very well carried out and the appetizers were delicious
The wedding cake was insanely delicious and I don’t even usually like wedding cake. It really was one of the best cakes I’ve ever had and it was absolutely beautiful.
The photographers were outstanding. They were both very fun people and mixed well with our group. They were discrete and I think the pictures will turn out to be amazing. Both Meg and I really enjoyed their company.
Thanks again for everything and all your help,”
Jon and Meg.
