Tanya and Sekeia’s wedding has been one of the most romantic ones we’ve ever taken, we were all so thrilled. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting this sweet couple of girls coming from Texas and being the photographers of their intimate wedding at the elegant Lloyd’s Baia Hotel in Vietri sul Mare, on the beautiful Amalfi Coast. The sky was a bit cloudy, but the reflection of the sea and the glare of the sun filtered through the clouds allowed us to make very impressive shots. There was a perfect harmony between us and this couple of girls who chose Italy to crown their dream, we’ve had such a great time with them.
The wedding celebration was held overlooking the sea and it has been the most intense and touching moment of all the day. It culminated with the sand ceremony, an ancient and symbolic tradition. The brides had two jars containing sand of two different colors. At the center of the table in front of them, there was an empty vessel, the celebrant invited them to simultaneously pour the sand into the empty pot. In this way, the sand has been united and created amazing shades of color, so the brides could keep the jar full of sand in their house forever as a symbol of their love.
After the ceremony, we drove the car through the Coast to arrive at our first stop, a village called Atrani.
The magical atmosphere, the sun that occasionally peeked behind the clouds, the silence and the white and the pastel colors of the architecture were the perfect backdrops for our photo shoot. The brides felt immediately at ease in front of the camera and the time has passed so quickly. We’ve had a great walk through the narrow streets of Atrani until the spectacular staircase of Santa Maria Maddalena’s Church to take some photos with the background of its breathtaking panorama. After Atrani we reached Amalfi where the wedding reportage with our brides continued with a long walk on the pier. After several shots, we moved in the old town of Amalfi on the steps of its spectacular Duomo. The sunset light for our last shots has been the perfect end of a memorable day.
