Celebrity Destination Wedding in Capri, Italy

white candle weddingsThis spectacular event is a bit of a secret really (shh, don’t tell).  You won’t see bride or groom in these photos (that’s because they are a super secret celebrity couple).  But instead, we’re sharing the incredible reception and details from the day at this Capri, Italy destination wedding.candlelit weddingProduced and designed by the talented Diana Sorensen and her team at Sugokuii Events, the wedding took place at the beautiful J.K. Place Hotel (which the couple rented out entirely for the weekend’s festivities).  Sugokuii Events set out to transform (but not take away from the beauty of) the pool area of the hotel to become a cabana style dinner party.  From the designer Diana, “we worked with floral typical for Capri, linens made and embroidered in Capri, glassware made specifically for the table from Murano, and we brought in rental furniture from Milano to create the look.  From the columns above, we had tiny glasses made for us in Venice that we filled with tea lights (430 were hanging) and on the side of the columns we had white linen curtains made – so they were flowing in the wind around the perimeter of the location.”hanging white flowers wedding“In between the glasses, we had our florist in Capri hang about 200 white Jasmine – to make it resemble a beautiful Italian garden – as if the flowers had been growing there for years.  It took a team of four about six hours to hang all the glasses and flowers — and another two hours just to light all the candles hanging from the column and ceiling — and around the pool, where another 1000 candles were lined up all around, giving it a beautiful ambiance from far away.”white weddings

Later these scents were transformed into a perfume and beautifully packaged and put into the room of each guest, so when they returned, they had their own personal perfume including their name engraved onto the bottle.”  Okay, why wasn’t I a guest at this wedding???  poolside candle weddingsAfter enjoying the sights and sounds of famed musicians and even an illusionist; guests ended the evening with Neapolitan cigars (rolled on the spot by a local cigar roller) and mini midnight snacks including mini gelati and mini Italian milkshakes…and then, fireworks!  The perfect end to a perfect event.  Thanks Diana for sharing this Italian island magic (and next time feel free to invite us!)firework weddings

    Absolutely beautiful – LOVE the flowers hanging from the ceiling and the tealights. The photo with the reflection of the flowers and candles in the mirrored table shows it off really nicely. Good idea to have a mirror cut for the table…..
