It’s September 2013. We’re at one of the most passionate places in the world, the beautiful Villa Eva in ridiculously romantic Ravello on the Italian Amalfi coast. The village itself is tiny and has the most jaw-dropping views — rolling hills, endless sea panoramas, charming country villages, and of course the beautiful Italian sunshine!
One hundred of Mishie and Misha’s friends and family have traveled from all over the world to join them and celebrate their wedding holiday.
The bride has sensational style (not to mention two awesome dresses!), there’s lots of personal input from friends and family, an Argentinian tango first dance, stunning picturesque Amalfi backdrops…. Interested? Of course you are!
Here’s lovely Mishie, the Bride, with all the delicious detail.
PICKING A DESTINATION FOR GUESTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD
Mishie, the Bride: Our wedding was in Ravello, on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Since Misha is American and I am Australian, we wanted somewhere that was neutral territory but also somewhere that guests would want to come to and where they could make a holiday out of it, since a lot of people would be travelling a long way! Italy is our favourite country to visit and Misha actually suggested the Amalfi Coast since it is one of the most beautiful and romantic parts of the country.
We were then recommended some wedding planners based in Ravello by a friend of a friend. We went out there in March to meet them and they took us to see various venues in Ravello, Sorrento and Positano. When we went to visit Villa Eva in Ravello, we just knew it was the spot where we wanted to get married. The view is spectacular and the villa itself is gorgeous and has a really relaxed and authentic Italian vibe to it. Ravello is the most stunning town and really small which meant that everyone could stay in different hotels but still be able to walk to the wedding venue and around town. And although Ravello is slightly more difficult to get to than other places on the Amalfi Coast, this has allowed it to stay less touristy and keep more of its original character, which we love!
