The marriage of Jackie and Jeffrey was a truly intimate and romantic destination wedding in Lake Como, on the spectacular Villa del Balbianello.
They had a wonderful civil ceremony recognized legally both in Italy and the USA and only closest family members and friends attended their wedding.
The couple arrived in Italy on July 16th and lodge at the Hotel Hyatt in the heart of Milan. The next day at 8:30 we booked for them an appointment at the US Consulate to complete the last part of documents necessary for them to get married civilly in our country.
In the afternoon a private chauffeur took them to Bellagio, where the couple stayed at the luxury Hotel Villa Serbelloni. On July 21st we organized wonderful excursions by boat to visit the most picturesque sites of the Lake to end with a family dinner at the beautiful Restaurant La Punta in Bellagio.

Jeffrey and Jackie’s wedding was a truly intimate and romantic event coordinated personally by my staff, Martina and Sara.
I’ve been planning to send a note to thank you again and provide more feedback, but I just haven’t had a chance yet between the honeymoon, moving and beginning graduate school. I thought that both the wedding and reception were amazing and I can’t thank you enough for all of your help! I promise to send a longer note in the near future, but I want you to know how happy I am with the work you and everyone on your team did to make everything exceptional. Please tell everyone on your team thank you from both Jeff and I. They were all incredibly kind and thoughtful and their help made our wedding and reception even more amazing than I could have imagined “
