Today marks me and Wes’ one-year wedding anniversary, and while we’re basking in the memories of our special day, we wanted to extend a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to the family and friends that traveled across the globe to join us for our destination wedding. I know it took a lot of planning and patience to bring us all together in Italy, but man, was it worth it! It meant so much to both us to be able to go back to Cinque Terre and show you why we fell in love with the place as well as create new memories together.
Planning a wedding in Cinque Terre without a wedding coordinator was no easy task but our photographer (Francesco de Tito), venue host (Alessandro) and violinist (Karina Stieren) made it a breeze.
