Nicole & Kenny's Runaway Elopement To Amalfi

I don't think I have ever been contacted and booked to shoot a wedding so close to a couple's wedding day (less than a week!), but I was more than happy to have ended up being part of Nicole and Kenny's Amalfi coast elopement. They were a fantastic couple to photograph and get to know. If there has been a theme of the 2021 wedding season it is that anything can happen, just go with the flow and enjoy all that life has to offer. This is of course especially easy when a couple chooses a wedding venue like the Hotel Santa Caterina in Amalfi which is by far one of the most beautiful and relaxing hotels on the Amalfi coast. I also loved how they incorporated pampass grass into their decorations a definite style trend of this year, but it was fun to see it used in the Santa Caterina garden, and the toned down colour looked perfect with the golden hour light on the Amalfi duomo. This pandemic has turned everyone's plans upside down more than once, and right now I just truly feel grateful to be able to do what I love again, photograph and meet beautiful couples from all over the world here from my home the Amalfi coast.

Jewish Elopement At The Santa Caterina In Amalfi

Nicole and Jack celebrated their Amalfi coast wedding at the Hotel Santa Caterina in Amalfi. A trend this year has been for a more fun relaxed approach as many couples have had to modify their original wedding plans. This couple chose bright florals,and lemon themed invitations, the groom had custom cuff links with their beloved dogs faces.  The groom's parents were able to travel to Amalfi with the bride and groom, but unfortunately the bride's family was unable to attend at the last minute due to travel concerns, so it was of the utmost importance that we be able to capture their day to share with everyone back home. So after preparations at the hotel with family, the bride and groom had a first look in the Santa Caterina gardens, followed by a golden hour photo and video session in the center of Amalfi.
Afterwards we returned to the Santa Caterina for a sunset Jewish ceremony followed by an intimate dinner and wedding cake.
Simple, beautiful, intimate and unforgettable.
