Although Antonio told Colin to spare no expense, Colin says the most meaningful touches of the wedding cost little to nothing. "As the Mediterranean sun was setting, we had them light a unity candle, and the unity candle was passed [to every guest]," Colin says. "When they made their vows to one another, it was done in the candlelight, and the spiritual connective energy of everything today [brought] all the family and friends together."
Because Antonio and Erica were married far from home, Colin made sure each guest received a welcome bag. In everyone's hotel room was a monogrammed beach bag filled with mementoes from the region—music, a bottle of Limoncello, a fragrant candle and a handwritten note from Erica.
