The old adage “absence makes the heart grow fonder” has proven true once again. Though Caroline Estopinal and Clark Brewer dated for six years, they didn’t talk much about getting married. But while she studied in Italy and he worked in New Zealand, everything changed. The pair met up on the Amalfi Coast, where Clark had a surprise—a hand-forged ring and a proposal. They later married in a European-style chapel and celebrated with guests in the backyard of Caroline’s parents’ home. “We wanted it to feel more like a summer garden party than a wedding,” says Caroline. “And we were inspired by the farm-to-table look to keep it warm, relaxed, and intimate.”
