Wedding in Ravello: Nejila and Alex

For their wedding in Ravello, Nejila and Alex chose Hotel Villa Cimbrone, one of the most prestigious Hôtel de Charme of the whole Mediterranean. The 12th-century mansion is located inside a six-hectares park with centuries-old trees, reachable only on foot, at about 10 minutes from Ravello historic centre. A charming place, perfect for this wonderful American couple who decided to fulfil their dream story in Italy.

The atmosphere was very moving from the moment the couple was getting ready for the day, Nejila looking absolutely radiant in her dress. Then, the vows: “I promise to take care of you, unconditionally. I promise to always smile back and to remember how much I love you”. Impossible to hold back the tears. At the spouses’ fingers, the wedding rings that once belonged to Alex’s grandparents symbolize that happiness is only real when shared, even with those who are not with us anymore.

The reception was an example of refinement, elegance, excessive attention to detail, from the set-up to the wedding cake. An exclusive and refined wedding then, which I tried to narrate in the most discreet and authentic way. My personal tribute to a couple and to a wedding day whose memory is forever engraved upon my heart.
