Engagement in Capri and wedding in Sorrento: a wish come true











Imagine a pre-wedding photo shoot in one of the most picturesque islands in Italy. Then a wedding in Sorrento, surrounded by the yellow of lemon trees and the blue of the sky and sea. Visualize your celebration in an extremely elegant villa, with a terrace that overlooks the peninsula.

Well, this was Steffany and Joel’s wish… and they made it come true, with a destination wedding in Sorrento that looked like it came straight out of a movie.

Steffany and Joel’s pre-wedding in Capri

Steffany and Joel, a splendid couple from Miami, were dreaming about getting married in perfect Italian style: that’s why they opted for a wedding in Sorrento. Being very religious, they particularly cared about such a meaningful event so they wanted to go big and add a pre-wedding shooting in Capri. In that occasion, they had the chance to set their love for each other free without needing to think of anything else.

It was an absolutely romantic photo shoot, that we realized all around the most beautiful spots of the island thanks to a private car. The highlight? Probably the scenic road overlooking the breathtaking sea stacks: they surely enjoyed those moments while creating never ending memories…

Wedding in Sorrento, at Villa Angelina

But the most important event was yet to come: the day after it was finally time for Steffany and Joel’s wedding in Sorrento.

After some elegant shots of them getting ready, the moment of the first look came – although in this case it was actually a “blind look”. The bride and groom stood at the two sides of a corner, holding each other’s hands but looking in two different directions while exchanging words of gratitude and faith: it was definitely moving.

During the ceremony, held on the amazing terrace of Villa Angelina, the weather was not the best due to strong and cold wind… but the newlyweds didn’t seem to care too much. It was an emotional ritual, followed by couple portraits in the refined park of the Villa and by a fun dinner party. After speeches and dances, the cake was cut with fireworks on the background: a rippling way to end this exquisite wedding in Sorrento!
