At the end of June, Nicole and I left Edmonton to jet off to Ravello, Italy for the elopement of Laila and Dennis. Earlier in the week, they tied the knot in Edmonton in a traditional ceremony before exchanging personal vows in Italy. Ravello is on the Almalfi coast of Italy and is probably the most beautiful location for a wedding. You can walk the entire town in less than an hour, just be prepared for the hundreds of steps, that’s what gelato stops are for haha! We were there during the heatwave that struck Europe this past summer so it was a fun experience trying to stay cool while carrying all of our gear. Laila and Dennis were staying in the beautiful Villa Cimbrone and we got them ready in their stunning room and then headed off throughout the town to take photos. Of course, we had to stop for vegan gelato for Laila and just regular for the rest of us. They exchanged their vows as the sun began to set over the coastline, not a dry eye was left at the end of it. We found a family-run restaurant that let us take photos on their property as we celebrated their new marriage over homemade pasta!
