Ashley & Joshua 's wedding week end

Posted by Giusy D'Ambrosio on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 Under: real wedding
Ashley and Joshua are from Los Angeles, California and have chosen Ostuni for their wedding day.
It was during Easter week, an unusually rainy week with 17°C that could not stop everybody's excitement for the forthcoming event!

A long wedding week end starting from Thursday with a guided tour for all guests to Grotte di Castellana and a light dinner with wine tasting in a local Enoteca.

On the Friday the party visited Polignano a mare and Alberobello, ending the day at the rehearsal dinner in one of the best restaurants for local cuisine Osteria del tempo perso, located in a natural cave.

Thankfully, on the wedding day the sun was shining in a partially clouded blue sky and this let us celebrate the wedding outdoor, in the courtyard of the Town Hall.

After the ceremony Ashley and Josh went with the photographers David Mihoci and Ena Simic for a shooting session through the white washed tiny streets of the old town and walked up on the hill of Ostuni to the reception venue La Sommità.

La Sommità is a five star luxury hotel  with a stunning view.

Its Cielo restaurant has a Michelin Star. Chef Sebastiano Lombardi created a gorgeous dinner and an exquisite wedding cake

We chose to name the tables after the towns in the surroundings. Flower arrangements with blush roses and baby's breath gave a touch of romanticism.
Ashley and Joshua happily opened my Wedding Season 2014!

About Me

Giusy D'Ambrosio I was born in the amazing and difficult city of Naples, Italy. I grew up on a land between the Volcano and the sea. Here I found my twin soul, my love, my husband and now business partner, Mimmo Morena. We married on a rainy Friday in May 1995 – against the will of our families. I was the too emancipated city girl, he was a country boy with a job that wasn’t a “true” job – professional basketball player. Anyway, we did it. Both families took part in the wedding, we had 280 guests. I didn’t care about anything but my dress and bouquet. The dress was designed and tailor-made for me by Nuage – Naples. As to flower decorations, I told the florist I loved red roses. The only thing I cared for was reaching the altar! Maybe this is why today I do love organising every single detail of a wedding – my brides and grooms get the best out of my time and expertise.
