Portofino my love
Portofino needs no introduction: it is one of the most glamorous sea towns in the world with a charm second to none. That’s why Cassandra and Ross, a young brilliant couple from New York chose this location for their amazing Destination Wedding in Italy.
After welcoming all their guests with lovely welcome bags filled with sweet and salty snacks and local products, the weekend started with a stylish photo session of the couple on a boat and in the Portofino harbor (meanwhile the guests were having fun sipping Prosecco on a private yacht we rented for them and the two boats also met in the sea!) and a rehearsal dinner at the Yacht Club. Refined and informal at the same time, the evening flew away fast and the wedding day came. An impressive abbey overlooking the sea was the chosen venue and from the pictures you can easily understand why: a sumptuous building with beautiful gardens and an incredible view, elegance and timeless charm in their finest expression. One of the most unforgettable moments was the “first look” between Bride and Groom: so intimate and romantic... It was the perfect prelude to the ceremony, full of love and emotion. The cocktail was organized in the garden and terraces of the venue and nature offered a great show with the sunset on the sea. Later the guests took their seat at the round tables placed in the highest terrace of the venue: the décor theme was a perfectly realized balance of white, gold and silver, with delicate flowers and high candelabras. Risotto with prawns flavored with Ligurian herbs and lemon and sea bass with capers, pine nuts and black olives were the main courses of a wedding menu strongly inspired to the local gastronomic tradition. A white tiered wedding cake concluded the dinner and let the party started! Lots of dancing and singing with a live band and after this the party continued in one of the most exclusive clubs of the Italian Riviera. As usual, Portofino did not disappoint our expectations, its atmosphere is unique and contributed the make the whole event incredibly chic and memorable!
