Kaitlyn & Ross

This couple from the USA has contacted me to organise their elopement in a particular place full of greenery but with an exclusive feel of the Sicilian aristocracy. In addition, this place should have a plan B option for the ceremony as the period was autumn even at the end of September. The probability of rain is medium during this period of year, but we never know and can’t predict the weather until a few days before a wedding.


Thus a cosy castle was selected within 20 min of drive from Taormina, where our couple planned to have a post-ceremony photoshooting. They booked also a gorgeous room inside the castle and a private dinner after the intense wedding day.


The wedding theme was created based on Kaitlyn preferences of deep burgundy and peach colors that mixed and matched perfectly with the unity wine ceremony. The hotel`s maitre was very gentle in suggesting the best wine for the ceremony.


On the wedding day a slight rain caught up with the couple, it ruined nothing, but only gave a fresh look to the flowers, enhanced a profound emerald color of the tropical garden of the castle and gave a special touch and light to all the 4 hours of wedding photoshooting.

Feedback from the couple (Wedding Wire):

My new husband and I knew we wanted a small wedding when we got engaged but when we began our search we had no idea where it would lead us. One night I started searching for elopement coordinators in Sicily, Italy as we love traveling to new places together. This is when I stumbled upon etnamare wedding. From the start Anastasia was very responsive, organized and always kept us informed. She took care of everything we needed and asked for our desires through the process. I loved how stress free it was for me! The elopement package included everything I had wanted and more. When we arrived to Castello San Marco for our wedding day we were beyond grateful for all of Anastasia’s hard work and seeing everything together was better than we could imagine. Even the unplanned rain shower during the ceremony was explained as good luck in Sicily! We cannot thank Anastasia enough for planning and coordinating our dream Sicilian wedding day
