When Katya and Joey envisioned their wedding, they dreamed of a setting that merged natural beauty with architectural grace. The serene waters of Lake Como provided the perfect canvas for their vows, and the majestic Villa Erba framed their love beautifully.

A Ceremony Framed by Nature and Elegance

The wedding ceremony took place outdoors, set against the breathtaking backdrop of Lake Como. To blend seamlessly with the castle’s historic off-white and beige tones, we opted for a palette of whites, greens, and subtle beige. Vincenzo crafted an exquisite altar featuring delicate, see-through elements that allowed the stunning views to shine through, enhancing rather than obscuring the lake’s beauty.

Arrivals with a Splash

In a cinematic moment, Joey and his friends made a grand entrance, arriving by boat—an unforgettable start to the festivities. This entrance set the stage for a day filled with unique touches and heartfelt moments.

A Reception of Earthy Elegance

The reception decor was inspired by Katya’s haute couture gown from Dolce & Gabbana. Echoing the dress’s beige and soft brown hues, the setting was adorned in cream and earthy tones, creating a harmonious blend that felt both elegant and inviting. The decor included lush floral arrangements, soft lighting, and rustic yet refined table settings that perfectly complemented the natural beauty of the venue.

A Night to Remember

As the evening progressed, guests moved indoors for an after-party that transformed the ambiance. Villa Erba’s staircase was lit with neon red lights, creating a sultry and electrifying atmosphere that contrasted with the day’s softer tones. The décor featured deep reds and blacks, with sculptures adorned in bold feathers and floral arrangements, encapsulating a “sexy vibe” that carried the celebration into the night.

Unforgettable Entertainment and Festivities

The entertainment was nothing short of spectacular. Gabriele Rizzi’s performances added a vibrant energy to the evening. One particularly memorable act was “The Kiss,” a subtly sexy show that became a hit with guests, offering both entertainment and a unique photo opportunity. The night also embraced cultural traditions with the Greek custom of plate-breaking, adding a lively and joyous touch to the celebration.

Beach Welcome Party and Rehearsal Dinner

The festivities began even before the wedding day. Guests were treated to a beach welcome party at Lido Di Lenno, where they enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere with stunning lake views. The rehearsal dinner at Villa Gastel was an intimate affair, setting the tone for the grand celebrations to follow.

A Dream Realized

Katya & Joey’s wedding was not just a celebration of their union, but a journey through a meticulously crafted aesthetic experience. From the ethereal outdoor ceremony to the dynamic and vibrant after-party, every element was designed to create an atmosphere of enchantment and wonder.
