Take the blue, the sea of the Gulf of Naples, a beach club overlooking the Vesuvius and lots, lots of love.
Anna Maria and Federico, engaged 15 years with one dream: a wedding by the sea. The big question? The location. "We looked at many places, all seemed too artificial. There was always something wrong and nothing convinced us." Then Annamaria has an idea that would solve their dilemma: rely on MedInStyle.
"Besides being a dear friend, Alessandra is also a formidable problem solver. I would have never been able to organize a ceremony for 200 guests in just 4 months without her help. I had an elbow injury and I was left to last minute planning. Fortunately, MedinStyle took care of everything!"
"It was in fact Alessandra who suggested the Bikini, a naturally elegant spot located in one of the most romantic bays of the entire Sorrento Peninsula. I didn’t want the usual formal wedding. I wanted that day to be celebrated like a party, an evening of festivities. We had dinner outside on the terrace, the view was magic.. the wedding was in July of last year but I remember it as it was yesterday."
The wedding took place in Santa Teresa in Chiaia, a church near Via dei Mille, a jewel of Naples. Shades of blue, white and light pink hydrangeas adorned the church’s majestic double ramp staircase. The bridesmaids wore blue, the bride in a refined haute couture dress by Julie Vino with a calla bouquet.
Anna Maria reserved a surprise for Federico. Shortly before the function, it was read a letter that Federico wrote her years ago when they were far away. A wave of nostalgia, that distance that made them suffer but in the end strengthened their love.
Relatives and friends were greeted outside the church with a refreshing tasting of sorbets. The newlyweds arrived at sunset at the Bikini by boat. Dinner by the sea, a selection of live jazz as background. After dinner, a toast for the couple and their opening wedding dance. The celebrations to be continued all night long. As the party favor, a saucer glazed with marine animals in Vientri ceramic.
"Every step of the way Alessandra was present, precise and attentive. Even in stressful moments she was always able to make you smile and put you at ease." These were the last words of Anna Maria and Federico, concluding by saying : "Being close to the sea made everything more relaxed, the organization of Med inStyle did the rest."
