Yael + Micha | Jewish Wedding in Venice

Jewish weddings are not very common in Italy – especially such lovely couples and such breath-taking venues!

Yael and Micha came from Tel Aviv to celebrate their wedding in the amazing city of Venice. They rent a typical Venetian mansard flat in Campo Santa Margherita – notice the beautiful small terrace on the roof! Yael and Micha got ready separately, and met on the terrace once they were both dressed for the wedding. That moment was absolutely lovely – the emotion and excitement the spouses were feeling was spread in the air!

Yael and Micha walked to the Synagogue passing the smallest calles of Venice. They had the chance to admire the beauty of the city from the eye of a native, because we led them through the most unknown venues to show them the hidden pearls of the Lagoon City, while having a small photo session.

Once we arrived at the small Campo before the Synagogue, the spouses and their guests had a small apéritif.
Yael entered the Synagogue first, and waited for Micha in the Kallah, the Bride’s Room, where her groom came to see her before the ceremony started – this is an ancient Jewish tradition based on the Byblical episode of Jacob the Patriarch, who married the wrong woman for her face was covered by a thick veil.

The ceremony took place in the wonderful Spanish Synagogue, built in the mid-500s. There, Micha and Yael recieved the blessing under the Huppah, a decorated canopy which stands for the couple’s future home. After breaking the glass – representing the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem and the subsequent diaspora – they were finally husband and wife!

After the ceremony, we had a small gondola ride that led us to the beautiful Cà Nigra Lagoon Resort, the chosen place for the reception, where the guests could enjoy the typical Venetian dishes in a beautiful terrace in front of the Canal. All the best to this beautiful couple!

Stephanie + Marc | Wedding in the Amalfi Coast

A beautiful Wedding in the amazing location of the Amalfi Coast by Mauro Pozzer Photographer

A gorgeous couple, a hot summer day, a stunning location facing the Mediterranean sea: what else can a wedding photographer ask?
From the U.S. to Ravello, one of the pearls of the Amalfi Coast: this was the trip that Stephanie, Marc and all their friends and families did to celebrate the couple’s wedding in the most romantic way ever. This special location was the wonderful Villa Cimbrone, once an aristocratic residence, now one of the best Hotel de Charme of the Mediterranean area. Stephanie, the wonderful bride, wore her wedding gown in one of the frescoed rooms of the villa, where the Norman-Arabic imprinting is still alive and perceptible. Along with her father, she reached her husband-to-be through the amazing gardens of the villa up to the so-called Tea Room, a wonderful porch among the trees and flowers. There the celebration took place: a civil ceremony surrounded by friends and family in a fairy-tale atmosphere. The shooting proceeded among the gardens of the villa, where the wild untouchable nature mixes itself to the highest of the human arts. The destination of the shooting was the Terrace to the Infinity, a small marble terrace facing the sea, characterized by its where the sight loses itself in what Gore Vidal defined “the most beautiful panorama of the world”. The result? A dreamy atmosphere which is hard to describe!

The reception started in a reserved area of the gardens, and continued in the Crypt – an amazing hall, characterized by rib vaults, facing the sea and the nature nearby.

What else to say – a stunning wedding in a stunning location!
