Destination Inspiration: The Island of Capri

posted by Candice February 16, 2011 7 Comments

We’re excited to share with you a new series here on our blog: every Wednesday we’ll be featuring inspiration and content for your destination inspired wedding– at home or abroad! We hope you’ve saved the date for an amazing Destination Inspired Event at The White Dress by the shore on March 20th, 2011. Be on the look out for a formal invitation in your mailbox! Be sure to get on the exclusive invitation list by emailing us at info@eventjubilee.com.

Our event is going to explore some of the most beautiful and romantic destinations for your wedding. This week, we’re featuring the island of Capri located on the Almalfi Coast in Italy. This is, hands down, one of my favorite coast lines in the world. When I think of Capri I’m reminded of food, fashion, and architecture. Can’t you see yourself hand-in-hand walking the streets in a mini linen shift dress, long hair and a big blue floppy sun hat? Well, I can!

With it’s turquoise coast line, rich italian food, rocky cliffs, windy streets, gorgeous boats, local artisans and diverse history it is an amazing location for a destination wedding! We can’t wait to share with you our mini Capri-inspired wedding at our Destination Weddings Event, but in the mean time, here is our inspiration board…

{ from L to R: blue cups with orange wedges unknown; woman in blue sun hat in field from cherry blossom girl; two photographs of beautiful bride in romantic gown unknown; tri-pattern from unknown;  yellow paper suite from creature of comforts and designed by maemae;  flowering branch by orchard cove photography; yellow tulip arrangement from wedding chicks with photography by stacey reeves; blue vintage european car in capri from travelshots; limoncello from wedding chicks with photography by stacey reeves }

Purely romantic, carefree and colorful, our board was inspired by the natural landscape of Capri– the interesting colors and textures– along with the dreamy ocean views. You don’t have to be in Capri to evoke the ambiance and atmosphere there– bring in this color palette along with diverse patterns, smooth finishes and rough textures. Build a menu around regional Almalfi Coast dishes, robust with fishes, lemon (!), handmade pasta, cheeses, and fresh local vegetables. And of course, wine! Be inspired by their beautiful architecture with its greco-roman curved arches, stucco finishes and tiled floors. Think about the narrow windy streets, fresh food markets, local textile artisans, little piazza’s and houses built into the cliff side.

We look forward to seeing you March 20th. xxoo~
