Kirsten and Brandon brilliantly chose to elope in the Amalfi Coast without sacrificing a party back home in San Francisco with their family and friends. Separating the two celebrations allowed them to have a special experience, just the two of them, in one of the world’s most beautiful locations. The pair exchanged personal vows at Villa Cimbrone while Antonio Patta captured the otherworldly beauty of the magical destination around them.
Kirsten and Brandon
Villa Cimbrone, Ravello, Italy
My wedding dress was hand made in Italy by Italian designer Elisabetta Poliganano. My hair was also an Italian updo. I absolutely loved my dress. They material was very delicate and it moved well as my husband and I danced. I also loved the way it hugged my body.
The most memorable part of the day was our ceremony. It was held in a private garden at the beautiful Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, Italy. There we recited our vows, which we chose to write ourselves. Our wonderful officiant incorporated Italian traditions into the ceremony to make it unique and special. It is a moment I will remember forever.
