No matter where you are on the coast, the dramatic cliffs will take your breath away. Capri, oh Capri, is the pinnacle of Amalfi luxury. It’s a popular destination for Italian couples.
Amy and Steve knew that their friends and family, who traveled, worldwide, took a ferry and hiked up the hills of their Italian paradise, deserved to be pampered and treated to a show. The wedding was extravagant, elegant, and romantic, from the food to the florals to the view to even the fireworks.
The couple continued a trend we have seen at many of the Italian weddings we have admired in recent months by having their guests sit together around an extended family table. This trend is our favorite, as it gives guests a sense of closeness and togetherness with the bride and groom.

Our Love Story
We went to Rome, Florence, and Positano six months after dating. Steve had never been to Italy before. I’d visited as a teenager with my mother. I soon realized that Italy is even better with someone special!
We had planned to visit Capri by boat, but the captain had to cancel the trip due to rough seas. So we didn’t get to see the beauty and magic of the island that we had been told so much about. We vowed that we would return one day.
After we were engaged in December 2016, a week later, we both said, “Destination wedding?” Italy was the obvious choice, as it has history, architecture, fantastic food and wines, and old-world charm. We considered a wedding in northern Italy, but we wanted the events of the wedding to take place outdoors and wanted to get married in the fall of 2017.
Lido Del Faro came to my mind as a venue because I remembered Giovanna had been married there the summer before. I booked the venue without seeing it. Three months later, on my way to London for work, I added a trip to Capri to meet our planners and view the venues.
We knew getting friends and relatives from the US, China, and the UK to Capri would be a big undertaking. We asked a lot from them. We wanted our wedding to be centered around things that guests would remember.
Before our Welcome Dinner, we hired a local band, Scialapopolo. They are now well-known for their Dolce & Gabbana advertisements. Amy loves Italian food, so we asked Lido for a multi-course dinner with local seafood, fresh pasta, and Italian cuisine.
A fireworks display accompanied the cake cutting. Who doesn’t like fireworks on a night with a full, clear moon?
