When music mogul Antonio "L.A." Reid decided to propose to his girlfriend, Erica Holton, he chose the stunning scenery of Italy's Isle of Capri. So when the pair were planning their wedding, they decided to return to the enchanting spot—with Colin in tow to head up the three-day affair.

Using Italy as his inspiration, Colin chose white and coral as the wedding colors and featured an Italian mountain on the invitations.

The first day of the celebration was a welcome day for friends and family. The dinner was set inside a lemon grove, with tables, chair cushions and even the waiters dressed in the festive citrus color. "It felt like a garden," L.A. says. "It was really, really beautiful."

The next day, the ceremony took place at the Capri Palace Hotel at sunset. "We were getting married outside. I wanted something just pure, innocent, spiritual, a reflection of God," Erica says. "So everybody wore white."

As Erica walked down the aisle in a Vera Wang gown, an Italian band played. Under a canopy of roses, the couple said "I do"—and, 20 pounds of rose petals fell from the sky. "Colin was the great conductor," L.A. says. "He put together a masterpiece."
