This is the story of Letizia and Gianluca, who first crossed paths in Parco del Filosofo in Capri. It’s one of those summer evenings when the Ponente wind is blowing through the grass and the waves are gently shaping the beach, bringing back old memories. All you need is a little bit of poetry and everything becomes clear: two divergent roads come together in order to become one lifelong journey.
This is the kind of poetry the couple saw in Gelsomina to Anacapri, the location where they chose to be married with the help of the knowledgeable wedding planner and perfect host, Gelsomina Maresca. The event was managed by Privitera Eventi, and music was performed by the Diana Cover Band and Antonio Ballarano.
In keeping with the casual and comfortable atmosphere of the day, the dress code was informal, with men, including the groom, wearing shorts.
The ceremony took place on a balcony with a view in the sea. The balcony, situated among trees and flowers, created the perfect romantic atmosphere for the couple and their guests.
The bride’s gown hangs in the warm sun in between the dresses of her two daughters, which flutter in the breeze.
The bride’s daughters accompany her down the aisle, with one walking by her side and the other carrying her long, lace train.
The bride walks hand-in-hand with one of her daughters while the other helps with her mother’s wedding gown as they get closer to the location of the ceremony.
At last the bride and groom get to see each other on their wedding day, and the groom embraces his soon-to-be wife while the bride’s daughter’s watch, smiling.
One of the bride’s daughters gives a speech, and she can’t contain her emotions and she smiles and dabs away happy tears.
The bride and groom sit at a small table during the ceremony, and the groom raises his hand in response to the mayor’s appeal while the bride smiles.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds dance together outside after the sun has gone down. They are surrounded by dancers in long, white gowns and bright wings that light up the night.
At last, the couple shares a kiss over their wedding cake as their daughters look on, one of them enthralled by the women on stilts with their lit-up wings.
