Yes, it was time to start the planning of their Big Day and is there a more beautiful country than Italy where they could get a memorable Wedding day? No! for sure! They envisioned their wedding ceremony and reception overlooking water, in an intimate and candlelit reception, white flowers and the best food. The Amalfi Coast was exactly what they had in mind!

They got married on September 28th 2011, at 4pm on a beautiful sunny day, while a mandolin and guitar were playing on a panoramic terrace encircled by beautiful green mountains located on top of Positano, overlooking the enchanting town with its Cathedral by the beach and the deep blue sea, what a breathtaking setting for a ceremony!

Champagne was offered to all guests right after the ceremony for a toast all together, what a romantic moment to share with your family and friends! Guests then were transferred to the Bar La Pergola, by the beach for a cocktail hour  while Bride and Groom with the photographer reached the most beautiful spots in town for the photo session.

And what beautiful spots! But above all, this beautiful couple, their spontaneity, natural smile, huge love for each other made their wedding photos sooo special!
