Inspired by this Oscar de La Renta gown, photographer Gina Meola Photography along with Ashley Gain Weddings and Events and a dream team created the perfect setting for a dream destination wedding nestled in the mountains of the Amalfi Coast in Italy. This gorgeous Arizona backdrop totally fooled us in all its pretty, making for an equally stunning destination wedding fave. Right here in the US of A.

From Gina Meola Photography: It started with inspiration from Oscar De La Renta’s 2012 runway collection, and flourished into a beautiful Amalfi Coast wedding. Fine Russian linen draped the table with delicate hand-painted Italian china. Guest favors included personalized limoncello and white wine bottles, easily accomplished by the stationery pros. The mountains of Tucson played perfectly into Amalfi’s mountainous coast. The bright, happy look flawlessly came together with bold yellows and whites, and the handmade head wreath brought Italy’s tradition of celebration to life! It worked perfectly with Hannah’s airy Ghislaine gown by Enzoani.

    That wedding dress is beautiful! You have the bridal store listed but who is the designer of the brides dress and what’s the style name?

  • Kate

    @ Jen,
    The dress is by Enzoani and is “Ghislaine.” I am actually wearing that dress for my wedding next March!

  • Loving the pop of yellow!

  • These pictures are fantastic, they really remind the typical atmosphere of the “citrus land”, Amalfi Coast.
    We actually planned many weddings in Amalfi Coast and Capri Island, and lemons and majolica were protagonist of our decor. Regards from Rome!
