Lake Como Weddings
Poets have long celebrated the breathtaking beauty of Lake Como. From Virgil to Alfred, Lord Tennyson, wordsmiths have gushed over the splendor of the mountains and of the lake itself, taking creative inspiration from the wondrous nature found there.
Lake Como’s mild and gentle Mediterranean climate draws brides and grooms from all over the world to make their wedding vows from the spring, in April and May, and all the way up to September. But perhaps the best time to get married in the summer, as this young couple did, from late June through early September, when the weather is perfect for an outdoor wedding. The days are balmy, but the nights are pleasantly cool and clear, and your celebration can go on until the wee hours of the morning.
The great thing about having your wedding at Lake Como is that there are so many absolutely gorgeous places that you can choose from for the nuptial pictures and video, the wedding ceremony, and also the reception. You can choose between elegant villas, resorts, gardens, or even palazzos. And yet, despite the beauty of the scenery, the lovestruck groom could hardly take his eyes off of his beautiful bride.
The City of Como
Como is a municipality at the southern tip of Lake Como. It is here that the bride and groom got ready for their most special occasion. We can see the groom—thoughtful and solemn as he prepares, in contrast to the bride—beaming and bubbling over with joy as her maid of honor and bridesmaids help her get ready for the ceremony. Later on, we see her shed happy tears as the couple exchanges one of the many kisses they give each other on their day of days.
Comune di Sorico
The couple said their vows of eternal love for one another at a church at Comune di Sorico, north of Lake Como. An ideal summer location with its many olive groves, Sorico was witness to the bride and groom’s joyous first walk as man and wife, surrounded by the well-wishes of their family and friends.
Reception at Le 5 Case, Gera Lario
The couple held their reception at one of the best restaurants in Gera Lario, Le 5 Case. Situated directly on the lake, the hotel and restaurant offers some of the best views of Lake Como and is perfect for both grand and intimate celebrations. It is well known for their seafood entrees and houses its very own winery on its grounds. The management and staff are well-prepared to cater to every guests’ whim and fancy, making the couple’s and their guests’ stay at Le 5 Case most enjoyable indeed.
