Intimate Oceanside Wedding in Positano, Italy // Courtney + Alec

Intimate Oceanside Wedding in Positano, Italy

While destiny may be a little controversial when it comes to love, it’s hard not to believe in it after meeting Alec and Courtney. They are what happens when two amazingly kind and beautiful people join together to become even moreso. The couple met in high school and began dating after graduation. Not only are they best friend’s but they are each other’s first love.


What started as a large affair ended up being more intimate and beautiful than one could have possibly imagined.


The trip began with a playful engagement session along the streets of Positano, Italy, the couple’s dream wedding destination. Passerby’s couldn’t help but smile as they strolled hand in hand through the crowded streets as if no one else in the world existed.

With only 12 attendants, Alec and Courtney said “I do” on a sun-drenched hillside along the Amalfi Coast in the quaint hillside town of Positano, Italy. The warm strums of a string quartet filled the air as Courtney walked down the grand staircase to meet Alec on the private rooftop villa and as the last light of the day danced along the ocean they promised forever to each other. 


After the ceremony we walked down to the beach as the couple waved back towards their guests who watched from the rooftop, where they were married just moments before. The bride walked barefoot through the streets of Italy hand and hand with her husband to a private boat that whisked them away on a sunset cruise around the bay. They sipped champagne, took selfies, and celebrated a quiet moment together as man and wife while overlooking the warm glow of the hillside reflect off of the dark waves.



Friends and Family filled the terrace with love and laughter as they dined over the night sky by candlelight, with all the wine they could drink and love in the air. A truly romantic affair.


Many experiences in life go unremembered, they fade away. Their love is a memory as beautiful as the shores of Positano.
