Emily & Jordan - Married - Castello della Mereta - Leivi, Italy

Traveling to Italy to capture Emily and Jordan's wedding was nothing short of a dream for me. Everything about that day was so beautiful and felt like straight out of a fairy tale! Not only does Emily have KILLER style herself, she had her good friend Calvy, a stylist from New York, hook her up with 4 different incredible bridal gowns/looks! All that gorgeousness set on an olive tree adorned hill over looking the Ligurian Sea, and I was in heaven! The two chose to tie the knot in front of a 14th century castle in the small town of Leivi near Genoa. Over 50 of their closest friends and family members were there to support and celebrate Emily and Jordan despite the distance of the wedding from their hometown in California. Who doesn't love an excuse to travel to Italy though, right?! Spenser and I sure took advantage of it and stayed for 2 weeks exploring Rome, Tuscany, Florence, The Riviera, and Cinque Terre. All in all it was an amazing experience and I am so excited to finally be able to share these images with you! To see personal photos from our time in Italy, you can scroll through my instagram!
