Our Positano, Amalfi Coast wedding is featured in the current issue of Martha Stewart Weddings on newsstands all over the world. It is an honor to be featured in print and in the best of them all, Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine.
This marks the fourth time that we have appeared in Martha Stewart Weddings print magazine, whether interviewed as an expert on destination weddings, weddings in Italy or a Real Wedding feature like this one. To see this wedding in their print magazine click HERE.
This wedding was a modern fairy tale and it was glam, glam, glam. Every detail was just a confection that looked like a staged shoot for a wedding magazine or a candy store. But it was very real and full of emotion with two families who were filled with joy over this moment for which they had waited so long. These exquisite photographs are courtesy of Corbin Gurkin. Michelle, today a successful lawyer in New York City, harboured dreams of her wedding day since she was a child. She knows what she likes and is very detail oriented, a characteristic that I always find easy to work with as I am very detail oriented too.
She and Christopher are both Catholics and so we found the perfect gem of a Catholic church right over the Mediterranean sea and the right vintage coach to transport them along the scenic coastline to and from the wedding.
The reception took place in their private villa that they had rented out for three nights to accommodate all the guests. It was the perfect size for both living and partying for three straight days with outrageous views over the town of Positano and of the sea.
Michelle is also very thoughtful and brought and confectioned beautiful little gifts for each guest in attendance. I arranged for a cake designer in Italy to combine the three cake ideas that she loved into one spectacular cake. In addition for the dessert table we had made adorable cake pops, cookies and other assorted goodies for the guests to snack on and a little box for them to take them away.
After the cocktail hour, seated dinner, sparklers and dancing the wedding finished up in the pool, of course, with the guests grabbing the remaining bottles of rosé prosecco to continue the party.
