Our clients often ask if we can work with them out of state and we are delighted to inform them that we work with couples all over the world getting married all over the world. So when we found out that one of our couples, and in turn our Capri map, was featured in the current issue of the Italian VOGUE magazine out in the EU - we were beyond thrilled!
Coordinated by Diana M. Sorensen of Sugokuii Events, the wedding was unique and glamorous!
From Diana...This wedding was designed for a couple from San Francisco, who invited 75 guests for a 4-day wedding weekend in Capri. They wanted to incorporate as many local traditions as much as possible, as well as primarily use floral product that was local for Capri. They incorporated beautiful linens from a 100% Capri boutique for draping the restaurant in white linens, and the bride, groom, groomsmen & bridesmaids (their 6 children) were also outfitted in linen clothing designed for them in Capri.
The ceremony took place in the intimate Anglican church on Via Tragara, one of the most picturesque roads in Capri. The music was that of a single mandolinist - an ancient instrument typical of this region, who played Ave Maria as the bride walked down the aisle. There wasn't a dry eye in the church!
After the ceremony, guests threw rice from cones made of leaves and were then escorted by the local Scialapopolo folk group dressed in traditional costume who danced and sang around the couple through the center of Capri, while being greeted by almost everyone in Capri who passed by them. The escort ended in the main piazza, with the Scialapopolo engaging the couple into dancing the Neapolitan tarantella.
The guests were then met by the local open aired taxis that drove them to the reception venue in Anacapri, overlooking the sea. The multi leveled restaurant was rented for the evening - and started with Italian inspired cocktails on the lower levels, then a sumptuous seafood dinner that included Italian caviar bruschette and later dancing and Millefoglie wedding cake served on the roof top terrace where an Italian inspired cocktail bar was set up under the stars overlooking the sea.
This gorgeous backdrop at the wedding reception?! Yes please!
