A Dreamy Capri Luxury Elopement: Rebecca & Ruffin’s Romantic Italian Adventure

As an elopement designer and photographer, I have been fortunate to organize countless love stories in some of the most breathtaking destinations worldwide. But Rebecca and Ruffin’s Capri luxury elopement was truly something special. Every aspect of their day was a dream, from the stunning venue to the personalized details.

Rebecca and Ruffin from Austin, Texas, a couple deeply in love, had their hearts set on exchanging their vows on the enchanting island of Capri, Italy. Rebecca had studied abroad in Florence and fell in love with Capri during a brief visit, and Ruffin, a fan of The Godfather, shared her passion for all things Italian. They knew that Capri was the perfect destination for their intimate elopement.

Their wedding day was set for June 27th, 2022, and the venue they chose was an exquisite private Villa known for its breathtaking architecture, tile work, and stunning views.

With the help of their talented wedding planner, Rochelle Cheever of The Elopement Experience, every detail was carefully curated to create a day that was uniquely theirs.

Rebecca looked stunning in her gown designed by Ines Di Santo, which she purchased from Alexia’s Bridal. The custom bridal sleeves were made using the same lace and illusion mesh from her gown, adding a modern twist to the classic design. Her hair and makeup were flawlessly done by @Gabriellaihair via Beauty Livery, enhancing her natural beauty for her special day.

Ruffin looked dapper in his Samuel Sohn tuxedo and Gucci shoes, perfectly complementing Rebecca’s elegant look. The couple’s rings were also sentimental, with Ruffin’s ring passed down from his father and engraved with their initials and wedding date. Rebecca’s rings were designed by Heidi Gibson, and her earrings were from Olive + Piper.

The floral arrangements were a true masterpiece Capri Flor di Domenico Ruggiero created. Rebecca’s bouquet was a stunning display of muted colors and vibrant textures, incorporating local flowers that perfectly complemented the romantic atmosphere of Capri.

Their elopement day began with a romantic jog down to the beach club and a dip in the pool at their hotel, adding a touch of adventure to the day. Rebecca and Ruffin then got ready in their respective suites, surrounded by the breathtaking views of Capri.

They incorporated their love for architecture into their elopement wedding photos, taking advantage of the stunning backdrops of Capri.

The ceremony was held at a private Villa, with the breathtaking view of Capri as a backdrop, creating an unforgettable moment for the couple. They exchanged their vows, incorporating English and Italian to honor the local culture and their love for Italy: the intimate setting and the heartfelt vows made for a truly emotional and romantic ceremony.

After the ceremony, the couple enjoyed a sunset boat ride around the Faraglioni Rocks, capturing more stunning photos against the picturesque Italian coastline. The beauty of Capri’s coastline provided the perfect backdrop for their love story.

Rebecca and Ruffin had a private dinner for their reception at a Michelin-starred restaurant overlooking the sea. The menu was carefully curated to highlight the flavors of Capri and Southern Italy, featuring local specialties such as fresh seafood, handmade pasta, and seasonal produce. The wine selection was impeccable, showcasing the best Italian wines and enhancing the culinary experience.

Throughout their luxury elopement, they were surrounded by the warmth and hospitality of the local people of Capri, who made them feel welcomed and cherished. From the friendly faces of the hotel staff to the genuine smiles of the locals they encountered, the warmth and love of Capri made their elopement truly unique and memorable.

As the night ended, they bid farewell to Capri with hearts full of joy and memories that would last a lifetime. Their luxury elopement in Capri was an experience beyond their wildest dreams, personalized to reflect their love story and create unforgettable moments they would treasure forever.

Their personalized luxury elopement in Capri was a dream come true. From the breathtaking venue and bespoke details in their attire, rings, and floral arrangements to the meaningful touches that reflected their love story and connection to Capri, every moment was meticulously planned and executed to create a unique and unforgettable experience. It was a celebration of their love in one of the most romantic destinations in the world and a true reflection of their journey together as a couple. Their elopement in Capri will forever hold a special place in their hearts as a cherished memory of their love story.
