Rain Can’t Stop This Rich and Rustic Destination Wedding in Puglia, Italy

A Wedding in a Gorgeous Winery in Puglia Where Even the Rain Was Beautiful

Puglia, Italy is the site of one of the very first trips bride Kaamila + groom Oliver ever took together. For these two, the southern Italian region is packed full of romantic memories. So when it came time to plan their “I do’s,” they couldn’t think of a more meaningful spot to gather their friends and family for the big day. 

Destination weddings might seem like an escape, but they’re not always safe from typical wedding day surprises. The two chose the beautiful Amatsuola as their venue, a masseria or farmhouse in the commune of Crispiano. Despite a romantic plan to be married outside in Amatsuola’s olive orchard with dinner and dancing under the stars, stormy skies showed up the day of Kaamila + Oliver’s festivities. But, like the savvy travelers they are, this couple changed gears and brought their refined yet relaxed celebration indoors.

With the help of their planner Victoria of Impression Villas and Weddings and the team at their venue, this intimate and elegant Italian wedding stayed safe and dry.

Photographer Yulia Longo captured the rainy, romantic day as it unfolded.

Kaamila’s stunning off-the-shoulder gown captured the chic-yet-festive spirit of the day. And that gorgeous, full, tulle overskirt was removable to reveal a mermaid silhouette for the reception!

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

One of the most special moments we shared was our private first dance under the twinkling lights in the courtyard of the masseria while our guests were enjoying their dessert. It was a spontaneous moment captured by our photographer and videographer that meant the world to us.
