Looking off over the gorgeous waters of the Amalfi Coast as the sun sank towards the glistening skyline, Sara & Austin were married. Hand-in-hand they took in the beauty of the moments unfolding before them. Six years of dating and engagement all lead up to this one sweet moment… they were finally husband and wife.
Their wedding day at Hotel Marincanto was breathtaking in every way. Their vision for their wedding was to find a spot that captured the romance, adventure, and beauty. They knew exactly what they wanted for their big day. 21 of Sara and Austin’s closest loved ones, traveled to this one place on earth. A spot that fits their epic love story: the Amalfi coast in Italy.
The breathtaking views from the Hotel Marincanto knocked Sara & Austin’s socks off. The red terrace where they had the ceremony have glorious views of the ocean as well as the city. You can also see the hillside and cliffs of Positano. No wonder so many couples pick Hotel Marincanto for their destination wedding in Amalfi. The views from the bridal suite terrace, where they had both dinner and reception, is equally amazing.
The overall theme that developed from the bride’s inspiration was “Golden Hour.” Ideal for an Amalfi wedding! The colors included in the palette are golden pinks, corals, warm mauves, and gold tones with ivory. These evening vibes were reflected beautifully in all the florals and wedding tablescape design. Even the Hotel Marincanto‘s exterior matched the color tones perfectly!
Sara and Austin’s wedding felt incredibly warm, intimate, and overflowed with happiness. There is something so special with an intimate celebration of 21 people.
Sara said: Being surrounded by the people you love the very most in the world and by new friends (our fantastic team!) who worked seamlessly together to create the most breathtaking and unique day we could ever ask for was genuinely beautiful. Austin and I had to stop ourselves multiple times during the day to take it ALL in and say, “Can you believe this is real? This is us, this is our story. Amalfi and this very spot will always be our place.”
They had come all the way from Texas in the United States to be in Italy. I can attest to the fact that the Amalfi Coast didn’t disappoint them! The glistening waters, gorgeous landscape, and views showed off a little extra the day of their wedding. It was the perfect setting to highlight their love story.
Sara is kind-hearted, passionate and gentle. Austin is generous, loving, loyal and adventurous. Together, they make a compelling, kind and well-balanced team. People talk about how someone else can bring out the best in them. Both Sara and Austin do this for the other. They are two of the kindest, most incredible humans you could ever meet!
From the beginning of their day, it was clear how excited Sara and Austin was for their marriage. The most significant example of this emotion was their first look at the terrace at Hotel Marincanto. Those moments between them when Austin first saw her as a bride were so charged with emotion. The view overlooking Amalfi was breathtaking, but he was only focusing on her. She looked radiant and more beautiful than any Italian sunset or landscape to him. A tearful moment together with so much joy! It was raw, it was real, and it was beautiful beyond measure.
Sara and Austin spent quite a lot of time writing the vows for the ceremony. They got inspiration from religious texts, universal literature, and poetry. They also included bits and pieces from their heritages. Sara’s brother held and handed the rings, and her sister kept the vow books. Incorporating siblings and closest friends in the wedding ceremony.
Though, their whole day was saturated with joy. The love they shared shined through every moment! They clung to one another. Their families surrounding them and supported them as they committed to each other. You could see it on their faces how surreal it all felt. It was more than they could have imagined for their wedding day!
It was such an honor and privilege to capture such a special occasion in their lives! Traveling to Amalfi for their wedding day was more beautiful than I could ever describe, and I am so thankful I was a part of it! I hope that the adventures never stop for Sara and Austin. That they live life together full of as much joy as their wedding day held.
