Today’s event is actually an inspiration shoot rather than a real wedding.  A small team of talented event professionals touched down on the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy to inspire those couples out there considering a destination wedding in Italy.

We asked Kim at Maru Photography how they came to select this special spot for their inspiration shoot.  “For it’s romantic charm and beautiful ocean-side vistas. The location is absolutely perfect for a romantic Italian destination wedding and the region is superbly equipped with all the amenities couples seeing such an Italian wedding experience would want and need!”

“The Amalfi Coast and Positano in particular, is known for it’s lemons. Lemons are at the heart of this region’s delicious cuisines and traditional decorations and motives. We wove them into the decor for this shoot.”

Besides all the beauty, great food and wonderful people in this part of the world, there is one thing to keep in mind before you book!  “Positano, along with the rest of the beautiful Amalfi Coast towns are ancient vertical towns, built into the cliffs overhangning the stunning Bay of Salerno. This could create challenges for travelers who are challenged with difficulty walking.”

Destination Wedding in Guadalajara, Mexico

Ori and Juliette decided on a destination wedding in Mexico because of the couple’s close ties to the area.  Juliette shared with us a bit about her upbringing.  “I grew up in Guadalajara and my dream was to get married in my hometown.  Also, I always wanted to get married on the synagogue my parents got married at.”  Such a sweet sentiment!  And so their big day began…

And at the reception, a nod to the day they got engaged.  “We got engaged in Paris, so we wanted to create a similar atmosphere, therefore we hung floor to ceiling photos of the engagement on three walls of the ballroom.”

Paris may have been some of the inspiration, but Mexico certainly played a part too as mariachis serenaded the group and dancers wowed the crowd.
