Karen and Chris. What can we even say about these two? They are two of the coolest humans we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. We’ve been truly blessed to cross paths with these two. When they reached out to us about filming their elopement in January of last year, we were over the freaking moon. Not only because it was an elopement, but because they were eloping in ITALY. YES HALLO BUCKET LIST, MEET CHECKMARK. We were even more stoked when we got the opportunity to meet up with them to discuss all the details of their wedding. We instantly jived and we loved how apparent their affection for one another was. Within a few weeks, all our travel was booked and we were counting down the days until October 9th, when we’d all begin our jet set across the world.
We spent one of our last days in Ravello with Chris and Karen. It’s an ancient, fertile town nestled in the mountainside, overlooking the mediterranean sea. Everywhere we turned, there was something beautiful, luscious, colorful, and old. It was like being in a dream. I believe Romance was born in Italy…I mean, literally, Roma makes up half the word.
Ok, I just googled it. Romance literally translates to “of the Roman style.” So now you get what I mean. It’s just oozing everywhere you turn. What a perfect day to share this blog post, on the day when we all celebrate romance with the ones we love.
Over the past year, we’ve gotten to know these two really well. We’re so happy to call them friends, so happy to have discovered a small part of the world together. That made getting to take these sweet photos of them wandering the streets of Ravello even more special. I hope you enjoy!
