This Italian Villa Damecuta elopement features jewel toned florals and details that perfectly reflect Capri’s natural vibrancy! Nicole and Jacob decided to cross off a bucket-list travel destination for their elopement and chose the island of Capri for its history, seclusion, and gorgeous surroundings. The couple tied the knot in a waterfront ceremony, then spent the rest of the day exploring the island’s incredibly romantic scenery with photographer Maison Pestea.
Nicole and Jacob
Villa Damecuta, Capri, Italy
Making it as least stressful as possible was most important to us in planning. We really wanted to be able to focus on our first day of marriage in a serene elopement-style ceremony and have the day to visit the many beautiful locations of Capri and Anacapri.
We wanted a historical location with gardens or nature around us. We also really wanted a sea view. Our wedding planners helped us find just this sort of location.
We wrote our own vows the evening before the ceremony in a book we had purchased on the island.
Our advice: Use a wedding planner! Your wedding day is your first ever day of marriage..don’t spend it stressed! Focus on each other and celebrating the first day as a married couple.
We had an elopement in a quiet location. We did celebrate and have our dance to “That’s Amore” that came on in a tavern with live music playing while we were celebrating with limoncellos later in the evening. Since then, we have deemed this our first dance song.
We had a sunset dinner in a semi-private area overlooking the sea. We had a variety of foods and then a lemon and raspberry petite wedding cake
The sunset near the sea was the most memorable moment. We were able to explore all of the locations in Capri and Anacapri that we had hoped for our wedding day. A crowd at a near-by bar had cheered and clapped as we were walking down to the rocks near the sea. It was a moment to stand still together, take in the view and realize we really were in Italy on our wedding day just how we had dreamed it up to be.
