Boy meets girl…Morocco meets Italy! It’s a classic story with a twist! For their big day, Sheila + Marco wanted to bring colorful party vibes to their Lake Como wedding. Elena and her team at Benevent Planner took the idea and ran with it, bringing in a vibrant color palette and unique details to their private-beach reception venue, Lido di Lenno.
We were inspired by the colors yellow, orange and fuchsia mixed the blue at the YSL gardens in Marrakech. We loved the idea of fan-shaped menus, a colorful table, and a social beach corner with fresh flowers for guests to take pictures.
A rain cloud settled in just before the couple arrived at the reception, setting plan B in motion with an indoor dinner. But the results? Total magic! S + M were so pleased with the outcome that there may have been a few tears upon seeing the room.
We’ve got a look into the brilliant day below with photos by Margherita Calati!
The Floral Pops
Sheila’s bouquet was like Marrakech in flower form! And only the beginning when it came to the day’s dreamy florals by Evelina Florence.
This is CUTE! Blooms on straw purses — LOVING this idea.
Wedding Day in Lake Como
The moment we met at the church, when the sun came out after the storm, just after our arrival at the venue!
No amount of rain could take away from the magic of this scene!
Sheila just looking like a boho goddess in that Grace Loves Lace gown!
We always love a good lineup of ladies in Show Me Your Mumu! (And seriously, can’t get over the floral cross-bodies!)
Color of Love
The most beautiful photo op setup!
Rainy Day Reception
Who said that rain would ruin the wedding day?! We’ve seen a few weddings in Lake Como here on GWS, but never one like this.
The colors of the floral cloud installations are just dreamy!
Yay, here they come!
Lake Como offers not only elegant villas but also beaches where you can create fun parties. So, think out of the box!
So much color, fun, and romance! Congrats to Sheila + Marco on your lovely day!
