Ally Lopez Events Style Shoot

Ally Lopez contacted us in early fall to plan this beautiful Coast of Capri styled shoot in preparation for Spring and Summer. The photographer, Erica, born in Italy fell in love with the exposed brick on our venue and said it reminded her of buildings from her homeland and she wanted to capture that vintage Italian charm. Let the Italian coast inspire you for your spring or summer wedding!
