I just returned from an amazing trip to Italy which was highlighted by our stay and wedding at Villa Cimrbone. The past year has been such an incredible experience and our wedding exceeded everyone's expectations. The staff is incredible and the hotel and grounds are stunning. The most accurate way I can describe this venue is that it feels like time stops when you are there. Perched at the top of Ravello, the views are endless and the gardens are like something out of A Secret Garden. We all stayed at Villa Cimbrone for 3 nights and had our wedding on the last evening. The food, weather, staff, venue were perfect and it felt as if we were living some sort of dream while we were there. While the gardens were open during our ceremony, there are plenty of places to go to take photos and our ceremony took place in a lower garden away from day visitors. It didn't bother me at all that the gardens were open and the ceremony was far enough away to not feel as though we were getting married in a fish bowl. We had dinner in the crypt which is hands down the best wedding dinner location I have ever experienced. It was such a unique experience and caused every one of our guests' jaws to dropped as they entered. After, we had dancing in the lower garden and at this point it was much later and the gardens were closed to the public. It was so special because it felt as though we were on top of the world dancing under the moon light.
Everything about our stay and wedding was perfect and I have now stayed at Villa Cimbrone twice and highly recommend it. Many people miss Ravello when visiting the Amalfi Coast because of the drive up into the hills but it is SO worth it. It is the most enchanting and beautiful place I have ever been to and to experience our wedding there felt like a real like fairy tale. Thank you Villa Cimbrone for a wedding of a lifetime!
Also, as a side note, a few shout outs to some of our vendors who were all incredible. Our photographer JoAnne Dunn was AMAZING and is reason enough to get married in Ravello (or anywhere in Italy for that matter!). I only regret that we weren't able to bring her home with us after the wedding! Also, our florist Armando (based in Ravello) was so talented and helpful. Finally, our band Family Funk was outstanding and had everyone dancing. They truly know what it takes to make you feel loved and special and I could not have asked for more from all of them.
Most importantly, they are just great people that make it impossible not to have the time of your life.
