High school sweethearts Janice Dewick and Davin Mortier chose one of the most romantic locales in the world to host their stunning destination wedding in Italy: The Amalfi Coast. With just 20 guests in tow, the pair — who first met when they were 14 — exchanged vows at the Santa Maria Maddalena Church in Atrani, a tiny fishing village on the coast. Janie, dressed in a classic A-line gown from Alfred Angelo, walked down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon in D. Her bouquet of all-white roses featured her father’s ring, a sentimental touch to the destination wedding in Italy. “Just having our closest family and friends together in such a beautiful place was all we wanted,” says Janie. Following the ceremony, the celebrants retreated to Gemma — a nearby trattoria — where the couple reserved a private terrace for the occasion. With every guest seated around the same table, the intimate reception featured “by far the best meal we’ve ever had,” says Janie; the sumptuous Italian feast included smoked mozzarella grilled in lemon leaves, fried pizzetta and Parma ham plus fillet of beef “au gratin” in a crust of herbs with mixed vegetables and fresh tomatoes. In lieu of traditional wedding cake, Janie and Davin served their guests tiramisu, a sweet finale to this destination wedding in Italy.
