Amore in AmalfiWords by Courtney Kellar

This Italian love story is filled with romance and simplistic beauty. Pulling from the natural landscapes of the Amalfi Coast and stunning architecture of the five-star resort – The Grand Convento di Amalfi – artist and stylist, Kristy Rice, created a swoon-worthy photo shoot. Each piece of stationery was hand-painted with “the Amalfi coast as our only muse,” says Rice. This photo shoot “is a lesson in reserved expression and refined styling but with plentiful personality.”
