Daughters of Simone Bridal Designer Said “I Do” in an Epic Cali-Inspired Lake Como Wedding at Giardino del Merlo

When cool California vibes met romantic Italian style in Ashley and Terrence’s Laka Como wedding, the result was nothing short of spectacular! The bride, who is a designer for the renowned Daughters of Simone, and her groom spared no expense and left no detail unattended for their special day. After the sweetest first look captured by Lilly Red Creative, the couple and their guests made their way to the cliffside location in Giardino del Merlo for a ceremony with both a stunning view of the water and boho-inspired florals created by Christine Cater that blended seamlessly with the natural, rugged landscape. Then it was off to Villa Camilla for a poolside reception filled with charcuterie, Italian sweets, and vintage-meets-boho lounge areas that created a relaxed yet elegant vibe. Of course, the true showstoppers of the day were Ashley’s off-the-shoulder Daughters of Simone gown and the bridesmaids’ frocks and pearl capes, which she worked on in collaboration with Leave Her Wilder for debut at this incredible affair. As you can imagine, this Lake Como wedding was as stylish and romantic as they come, and we’re honored to share every dreamy detail!
