Wedding Reception Bald Head Island 

 

From the photographer:

Michelle and Preston were wed at the Village Chapel of Bald Head Island and held their reception at Shoal’s Club, Bald Head Island NC. It’s a destination off the coast of Southport, NC a sleepy town at the mouth of The Cape Fear River.
You must take a boat to get to the island and there are no cars, only golf carts for transportation. It’s off the beaten path and provides folks with a comforting sense of ‘leaving it all behind’. Michelle’s family owns a home on the island, and it was her number one choice in places for she and Preston to host their guests for their lovely fall wedding on the island. It was a wonderful celebration to be a part of.

Lake Como Italy Destination Wedding by Belle Momenti Photography

Ciao Bella’s!  Be prepared to be swept up in an Italian romance with this stunning destination wedding overlooking Lake Como in Italy from Belle Momenti Photography. The entire wedding day embodies a relaxed, romantic Italian day with stunning lake views, a simple yet elegant colour scheme of classic ivory and coral, and an Italian feast fit for a King! So many couples dream of a romantic destination wedding in Italy for their special day, and this lovely pair were lucky enough to fulfill that dream and create an amazing atmosphere their guests they’ll cherish forever.

Coral and Ivory Wedding ColorsOutdoor Ceremony Lake ComoDestination Wedding ItalyLake Como Bridal ShoesJulie and Frank originally fell in love with the Villa Cipressi at Varenna Lake Como when holidaying in Italy the year before their wedding. With century old gardens and tiered terraces leading down to the lake, it was the perfect setting for a romantic outdoor ceremony.

Lake Como Destination WeddingCoral and Ivory Wedding BouquetsWedding Ceremony Overlooking Lake ComoLake Como Outdoor WeddingThe ceremony took place outside in the beautiful gardens with amazing views of Lake Como. After walking down the aisle to Evan Cassidy’s “Songbird” their Italian ceremony was translated by their wedding planner with readings by family members to personalise the ceremony. 

Coral and Ivory Wedding IdeasCoral and Ivory Wedding Flowers CenterpieceLake Como Italian Wedding ReceptionLake Como WeddingAs the wedding ceremony was surrounded by beautiful gardens, only simplistic decor was required to enhance the natural beauty. Coral and ivory roses were featured in the bride’s and bridesmaid’s bouquets, in the ceremony table decor, and for rose petals lining the aisle. After the ceremony guests were served an aperitif of gorgeous parma ham, scallops and mini pizza served with prosecco (Italian white wine).

They also managed to include a little celebrity spotting cruising by George Clooney and Louis Walsh’s villas!  After two hours of taking in the sights, they made their way back to the Villa to devour a delicious 5 course Italian wedding breakfast.

Lake Como Wedding ReceptionCoral and White Table CenterpieceLantern Candle CenterpiecesItaly Themed Wedding TablesThe stylish table centrepieces featured ivory lanterns filled with candles and small vases of white flowers. A scattering of table diamantes were also added for a touch of sparkle. Instead of table numbers, the bride’s Aunt designed and created table signs and place cards for each table with each table named after an Italian city. She also made a table planner to co-ordinate with the ‘Italy’ themed stationery.

Lake Como ReceptionItalian Olive Oil Wedding FavorsLake Como Italy Destination WeddingTo keep the Italian flavour consistent through their theme, they chose a traditional three tier Italian wedding cake called Millefoglie. For wedding favours, personalised bottles of olive oil bottles were given to each guest. Finally, as the sun set over the lake, hanging candle holders were lit to beautifully set the romantic scene. As luck would have it, an amazing thunder storm with bolts of lightening lit up the sky at 11pm creating a free firework display for everyone to admire over stunning Lake Como!

We asked lovely bride Julie to share with us:

Did your wedding include any personalised details? 

We had our invitations designed as a passport which enabled us to include a lot of great details including a ‘Learn Italian’ section and RSVP’s in a luggage tag design!  On the day, the groomsmen all wore handmade suits which were personalised with their name and Lake Como 2011. We also made sure to include the guests in our day by asking each of them to request a song as part of their RSVP. All the songs were played at some point throughout the day and it worked really well. 

What challenges did you experience planning a wedding in Italy?

There were small problems mostly due to the language barrier but calling on the phone rather than emailing, usually resolved that! We also decided to use a wedding planner – originally to help with the paper work requirements to wed abroad – but they were extremely helpful in all aspects of planning the day from the location and venues, photographer and flowers, and all the ceremony and reception details.

What were your favorite moments?

During the wedding breakfast and the boat trip we were able to really sit back and take it all in as well as watch everyone else enjoy the day. Everyone always says your wedding day will fly by. It really does! So I’m really glad we were able to absorb it all and remember such great memories from those moments.

How would you sum up your wedding day?

We had the most amazing wedding day. We were very lucky to have so many of our friends and family with us to share our special day and becuase of this we wanted to make it a unique experience for everyone who attended. From the traditional Italian food (which blew us away), to the beautiful scenery and amazing boat trip, I hope we achieved our goal!

Thank you Julie and congratulations on an amazing wedding day! Thanks also to Belle Momenti for beautifully capturing the essence of the day!
