Exactly two years after their first date, Vanessa and Jeffrey celebrated their romantic intimate destination wedding on Capri, in the evocative setting of Villa San Michele.

An exceptional location for an intimate destination wedding on Capri: Villa San Michele

Fascinated by the description that Ferdinand Gregorovius  a german historian made of Capri, comparing it to a dreamy sphinx or an ancient sarcophagus, Axel Munthe, a Swedish physician and author, made this island his personal paradise. Villa San Michele was built around the turn of the 19thcentury by him and it was his home. The embodiment of his ideas about beauty. The architecture, the works of art on display, the ivy-covered sculptures, every single element contributes to creating an environment full of romanticism and symbolism.

And in this historical place, one of the most visited of the island of Capri, Vanessa and Jeffrey became husband and wife.

A romantic and elegant look, with classic and vintage influences

In the presence of 13 guests, this intimate destination wedding in Capri, organized  by Ema Giangreco, was inspired by a romantic and elegant atmosphere, with the added touch of a vintage car that accompanied Vanessa and Jeffrey through the tree-lined streets that wind their way through the island from the highest part to the pier.

Vanessa chose an elegant Allure Bridals dress, with romantic drooping shoulder straps, a wide tulle skirt and a cathedral drop veil with lace edges.

Jeffrey opted for the timeless charm of the formal black tuxedo.

The bucolic style of the location provided inspiration for the realization of the wedding stationery and for the design of the entire event, which continued at the Caffè Casa Oliv, within the Villa.

After the lunch, the couple took their vintage car to the dock, where they boarded leaving the wonder of this island, but taking with them the memory of an amazing day.
