Ravello, 21st August
After years of experience in the destination wedding industry, we have developed the idea that to travel really long distances to get married in places like Ravello, Amalfi and Sorrento is not only the desire to visit distant, romantic and fascinating places where they can promise to each other eternal love, but also very often the desire to share with their loved ones, including the travel and enchantment of the landscapes, culture and character of those places.
Lauren and Adam chose the intimate church of Santa Maria Magdalena in Atrani for the catholic ceremony. This church was founded in 1274 on the ruins of a medieval fortress on the initiative of Atrani and over time the church has undergone considerable restoration. Today the church contains numerous statues and paintings, such as the Madonna Shepherdess, a famous sculpture dated 1789, and The Incredulity of Saint Thomas (16th century). Moreover, its pretty facade in Rococo style is considered the only example of Rococo on the Amalfi Coast.
After the ceremony and a short photo session in Atrani, Lauren and Adam joined their guests at the magnificent Villa Cimbrone for the wedding dinner and party.
Villa Cimbrone was an home from the 12th century and is now one of the most prestigious and charming hotels around the Mediterranean , still radiating the atmosphere and charm of yesteryear.
Adam and Lauren wanted to honor their guests with the charm and indescribable beauty of this villa, welcoming them for dinner in the crypt, one of the most elegant halls of this dream location.
