Intimate Italian Island Elopement

Olivia and Rocco eloped to Lipari last November, an Italian island off the northern coast of Sicily. Rocco had been there when he was a child and vowed he would return for his honeymoon- a romantic even at only ten years of age! Their beautiful day was captured by Nordica Photography, and the couple shared this of their story: “When Rocco was ten years old his family took a trip to the island of Lipari, and falling in love with the beautiful landscapes, he promised he would have his honeymoon there. Fast forward twenty years, we did just that. Our wedding was an intimate elopement in Lipari, Italy. Our day started with cappuccinos and a stroll to pick flowers for our bouquet and boutonniere. Our private ceremony with self-written vows was on Canneto Beach overlooking neighboring islands, followed by a picnic complete with champagne, prosciutto, and ice cream cake. From there we went on to explore the rest of the island- the downtown city center, then to a beautiful look-out area high up in the mountains, and finally to a 600-year old church and the fields surrounding it during sunset. Our wedding day was completely about the two of us, enjoying being in love, creating moments and memories that we’ll think of, laugh about, and will share as part of our love story to our children, grandchildren… anyone who will listen really!”
