Friends and family, from as far-flung as Brazil, Dubai, the UK, Malta and the US, joined Sandra Sanches and Gregory Redmond for their marriage on the Fourth of July.
Held in the sweeping terrace of the Villa Pompeiana of the Bellevue Syrene Hotel, in Sorrento, Italy, the couple exchanged vows with the sound of the crashing waves of the Adriatic Sea below.
The beautiful bride, who is director of public relations and major gifts for the Association of Community Programs for the Homeless (ACE), was given away by ACE’s founder, Henry Buhl.
Following the ceremony, the wedding party enjoyed champagne and canapés before retiring to the reception ballroom for dinner and dancing.
Guests included Adrien Arpel, Dr. Samuel Guillory, Monique Grignard, Henry Buhl, Alexandra Buhl, Kathy Ruland, Kathrin Apitz, Andy Young, Dr. Rosemary Ingleton, Larry Leeds, Ginger Feuer, Carlos and Renee Morrison, Julie Kirchner, Colin Stewart, Kim and Paul Pompeo, Donna and Dick Soloway, Svetlana Smith and Danny Fontana, Jon and Nordia Baker, Rob Goldstone and David Wilson, among others.
Following the wedding, the newlyweds boarded the yacht Eleni and headed to Capri. From there they spent the next week cruising the Italian Riviera — stopping off at ports along the way including Lipari, Taormina and Siracusa.
