Amalfi Coast Wedding inspiration at Marina del Rey Ritz Carlton
There is arguably no location more romantic than Italy’s Amalfi Coast, with its long stretch of cliffsides, dotted with small beaches and pastel colored villages. So when looking to draw inspiration from this gorgeous and charming region with Anya Kernes and Weddings by Susan Dunne, there was no shortage of romantic ideas to pull from. Choosing Ritz Carlton Marina del Rey as our shooting location, we created our own slice of Italy on the California Coast on this October Day.
Our tablescape was classic and timeless with Italian Flair. Painted china and etched crystal glassware was accented with custom calligraphed name cards and subtle candle details. The Ritz’ ballroom is full of natural light making for a bright and airy dining experience.
Looking for the perfect Summer treat for cocktail hour? A signature cocktail incorporating popsicles from Mom and Pop Shop Truck’s popsicle cart makes for the most perfect custom treat that is both beautiful and refreshing.
A ceremony on a yacht, complete with trumpet-playing (and ordained!) boat captain from Paradise Bound Yacht Charters provided the most ideal ceremony setting on the water at sunset. The couple’s floral-decorated getaway Vespa turned heads and lended an adventurous charm.
If you are a person who is inspired by the romantic European coast as much as I am, I hope this shoot fills your head with visions for your own special day!
