Emily Compagno Married Life
Emily Compagno and Pete Riley eloped to Villa Cimbrone in Ravello in September 2017. They married in an intricate wedding ceremony in the hotel.
The hotel is a 12th-century building serving the scene of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The two had maintained the air surrounding their wedding though their photographers, Jos and Tree, shared their journey.
The photographer-couple, the WoodSmiths, called Emily and Pete's private Ravello elopement one of the most unique and meaningful weddings they photographed.
Moreover, they also described the elopement as "La vita e un sogno," which translates to "life is a dream."
Jos and Tree captured the couple strolling around the city, their simple ceremony, and their time for the day. Pete and Emily went around the town for coffee and tennis in their wedding suits.
After returning to the hotel, they ended their day with dinner at the Michelin-starred Matrodi Baldo Durazzo restaurant.
They spent their next day riding on a boat to Positano on the Amalfi Coast.
Simona Apicella coordinated the event. Emily's gown and veil were designed by Suzanne Hanley with Atelier des Modistes, while Pete wore his tuxedo from J Crew.
Emily and Pete are yet to have any children. The childhood friends turned lovers had dated a year before the marriage.
