THE WEDDING OF STEPHANIE & MIKE HAS BEEN FEATURED ON "STYLE ME PRETTY"

Future Mr. & Mrs.,

I am writing this letter to express our deepest gratitude for the hard work, dedication, and patience provided by Wedding Italy, Sonia Gallina, and Alberto Ciani.  When my wife and I choose Firenze, Italy as a wedding destination, we knew that planning a wedding from a world away was going to be a daunting task.  However, in the experienced hands of the Wedding Italy staff the planning was incredibly smooth and painless.  Our weeklong event went far better than we had ever imagined, and the 82 guests which traveled all the way from California to join us could only praise how flawless the whole trip was.  Whether it be coordinating our travel, accommodations, events, contracts, payments, or any of the other hundreds of items which go into a spectacular wedding, the Wedding Italy team presented themselves in a professional manner, and never made us feel that anything but our true happiness and best interest was at the forefront of our their decision making.  The Wedding Italy team was the key to our wedding success.  Thank you so much Sonia & Alberto.  We are so grateful for your job well done.

Should any further reference ever be requested, please, feel free to email me at mfirenze@yahoo.com.

Ciao!
Stephanie & Mike.

…..And from the bride:

And I should add thanks for putting up with my MILLION emails.  Honestly, everyone is saying it was the "Wedding of the Century" and such a "Fairytale wedding".  Mike's friends were jokingly mad because we set the standard so high!! Please send MANY THANKS to Floralia and Galateo as the flowers, set-up, and food were ALL Amazing!!! From the cake to the fireworks to the lounge area, everything was AMAZING. So many people couldnt stop raving about the cake and how good it was. It especially was neat because it was made in front of us and everyone REALLY enjoyed that; it was very original. Anyways, I can go on and on. I honestly wouldnt have changed a thing. Also, thank you SO MUCH for helping with Bachelor party and my Chris Dorazio getting touch with his family. You went above and beyond.
 
We will definitely be back to Italy. Mike is working towards getting his dual citizenship as we speak:)
 
And please let us know if you ever make it to California!
 
Ciao!

Dreaming about a wedding in Italia is wonderful and planning it and making it happen can be wonderful, too. 

There are so many wedding planners from which to choose to plan a wedding in Italy.  We researched, read, and interviewed several before choosing the BEST for us.  We chose  “Wedding Italy” http://www.weddingitaly.com/ to help us make our dream of our wedding in Italy become a magical experience. 

“Wedding Italy” has a staff of experienced wedding/travel consultants.  Our wedding planner, Sonia Gallina, was perfect for us!

The Amalfi Coast was our choice of location for our wedding.  How does one choose just one location on the Amalfi coast for a wedding?  It was a difficult choice; and with Sonia’s expertise, we reviewed 14 locations before making our final choice.  Sonia provided details about each location and when there were questions, and there were many to make this important decision, she contacted all locations and had ready answers within a remarkable response time. 

We had NO issues/glitches with any part of our wedding planning process.  It was FUN!  Even when the days before leaving America to travel to Italy continued to countdown and the checklist items continued to multiply, always the calls with our wedding planner were calming and assuring because she always did what she said she would do and when she said she would do it.  She stayed in close contact via phone and email throughout the entire process.

Sonia had a way of making us feel as though we were the most special people in the world.  She plans and attends weddings throughout Italy, and even during the high season for weddings in Italy, we always felt as though our wedding was the most important upcoming wedding on her itinerary.

Guests from four countries and six states in America travelled to join us at our wedding on the Amalfi Coast – October 2010.  Our wedding day was magical.  It was a dream come true!!

Over and over again, our guests during our wedding reception and months since this special time in our lives, provided comments such as this to us……

“Sitting under lemon trees, looking toward the sea and hearing the wedding ceremony in two languages while feeling the love between the bride and groom and among the guests was so emotional.”

“I will never attend another wedding as special as this wedding.  Can we have a reunion in years to come?”

Thanks is such a small word for the significant contribution Sonia Gallina with ‘Wedding Italy” made in our lives. 

Without hesitation, we will recommend “Wedding Italy” to anyone wanting to enjoy a magical wedding day anywhere in Italy.

Hello Tina,
 
I just want say hello and thank you for all your staff's support in our wedding. We are really pleased by the service of the Florist and the photographer. The Bouquet was really beautiful and the florist were very helpful at the end. Valerio was amazing, patient, calm and very sweet. It was really good to know that he is a Venetian and know the best spots for the photos.

Hi Tina.

It was a shame we never personally me. But we want to thank you for helping us to have the best wedding we could have ever hoped for. It was beautiful.

Thank you and your staff once again.

Matthew & Michele

P.S. I highly recommend La Caravella. The service and food exceeded our expectations. Nichola was the perfect coordinator/waiter/host.
And again:
When we decided to marry in Venice, we certainly had a number of questions, but they continued to grow as the time grew closer. Tina listened to what we had in mind for our wedding, and she quickly put together a general plan. Her cost estimate was very reasonable, and we did not get add-ons or up-sells. The plan was all inclusive, with the exception of the reception. Our biggest concern had to do with  making sure we had all of the legal requirements. Since my wife was not born in the USA, there were some complications. Tina walked us through the process, provided guidance, and was our liaison/advocate in Venice. In the end, everything was fine. Tina also provided suggestion and input for our reception site...La Caravella, which we highly recommend. Tina made sure the flowers were just what we wanted...they were beautiful. At the last minute, since we had only about a dozen guests, we asked for gondola rides from the wedding site to the reception site for all. Tina made it happen. While in Venice, we worked with two of Tina's associates who were supportive and helpful. They all seemed genuinely happy for us and doing everything possible to make our wedding truly a day of wonderful memories. We are waiting for our photos (our wedding was just a couple weeks ago), but we were very pleased with the photographer's patience, his happy demeanor, his choice of settings and groupings, and his obvious pride and desire for us  to be very pleased with his product.

So, in summary, we are very grateful to Tina, her staff, and colleagues.  Anyone considering her firm for wedding services can feel confident she will charge a fair price for her services, that she is reliable, and that she will be with them every step of the way.

We are forever grateful!
Matthew & Michele

Hi Sonia
we would like to thank you and wedding italy for making are wedding in Bevagna (Umbria) a dream come true.

The location was stunning, where we experienced the real Italy. The hotel, staff and the food where just outstanding, all the guests are still talking about the day, from marrying in Assisi to the hotel reception. Everyone including ourselves raved about the food and the wedding cake, we have never seen or tasted a cake like it, it was so different from the traditional wedding cake that would have fruit or sponge.
This cake was made with millefeuille, egg nog, fresh fruit and cream it was just melt in the mouth.

We are so glad that you helped us to make the right decission by marrying in italy.

Hi Alberto,

We would like to thank you for all your assistance and for making our wedding day such a success. The town hall was stunning and our meal was delicious. We are happy that we chose Florence for our wedding the city was beautiful and luckily the weather was good for the day, we can’t wait to see our photographs. Jane and I thought the flowers were stunning and the bouquet was just as Jane wanted.

By the way, we thought that the photographer (we think his name was Bruno) was brilliant – he took some very unique photographs and although we could not understand most of what he said (thank goodness we had a brilliant interpreter) it was obvious that he was both professional  with lots of experience and had a great sense of humour.   Also Maritza who did Jane’s hair and make-up was excellent – always checking that Jane was happy before she went onto the next stage.  She even helped Jane into her dress because we were running late – Jane was extremely grateful and relieved!

Ciao

Hi Sonia
Thank you so much for organising our wedding in Malcesine this August.
It couldn’t have gone any better. Everything was organised for us, so we could relax and enjoy our holiday. Everybody was so friendly, and accommodating, especially Beatrice, our co-ordinator, and I thoroughly recommend Sonia and her team. The meal at La Pace was amazing, the boat trip on Lake Garda was breathtaking, and the photographer was fantastic. I can’t think of any way our wedding could have been improved. 10/10, five stars, A+!!

Ciao Tina,
 
I just wanted to send a quick email to say Thank You for all your help in planning our Wedding in Certaldo and to ask if you would pass on our thanks also to Helga.  The day was amazing and one we will never forget!  The weather held out for us until the second course of our meal, when the heavens opened and there was a huge down-pour of rain and hail stones!  The restaurant staff were extremely helpful though and quickly moved us inside to finish off the rest of our meal!  At least it stayed dry for the photos!!
We are looking forward to receiving the CD of the pictures that Michela took. 
Thank you again for all your help in planning the perfect wedding!
 
Best wishes,

Hi Helga

How are you?!  I meant to drop you a note when we got home to say a huge thank you for everything you did to make our day so perfectly wonderful.  I will send a full note to you shortly so that you can use this as a testimonial as required, but we really had the most wonderful day ever and so did all of our family and friends.  One of Mark’s friends said he’ll never get married now, as it would never be as good as ours, really sweet!

I wonder if you can (when you have time) also send me an email address for the DJ, photographer etc so that we can send them our thanks too.  The team you put together for us was fabulous and we really can’t thank them, or you enough.  Thank you.

Seriously, thank you so much for everything.  I will send you a proper email soon (just mad busy at work at the moment).

With love,
Lynn xx

I would like to start by saying Thank You!  Thank you for making my dream wedding become a reality.  It was the most perfect day any bride or groom could have wished for. 
My husband and I knew that we wanted a destination wedding- something small and intimate - a day that we would always remember as a very special one.  Since my grandmother is originally from Italy we decided Italy as our destination.  As I began to search online I found WeddingItaly.  I emailed them about the process of getting married and it just took off from there.  I was in contact with Sonia- she is WONDERFUL!  She gave us lots of information about the paperwork process- which I would not have been able to figure out or have completed correctly with out her. She also gave us plenty of wedding locations to choose from.  Since we decided to go the Catholic route she showed us to several churches- we fell in love with St. Anna- It was even more spectacular in person than the pictures.  She also gave us options for reception  sites and hotels.  It almost felt like someone was doing all the "hard work" of finding these wonderful spots and I just had to pick one- it was very stress free! She did everything from the flowers-photographer- transportation- etc.  and it was all exactly as she had laid out for us in our agenda.  While in Rome I met up with wedding coordinator- Ely she was so very kind and warm as well as helpful for our last minute wedding items. 
After the wedding my husband and I went to Venice and Florence for out honeymoon =) Once again Sonia provided us with hotel options and booked all of our tours an trains.  Everything was perfect!
I honestly can say that this was the best decision that my husband and I decided on- getting married in Italy and using WeddingItaly to plan our big day.  The entire trip was relaxed and enjoyable.  I will remember the entire experience for the rest of my life.  I am anxiously awaiting our wedding photos and can not wait to some day show my children and grandchildren my husband and I's very special trip to Italy!

Reference to a client:

Hi Steve,
My husband Brady and I were married in Tuscany earlier this month.  Choosing Alberto and his company was one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding.  They made planning a wedding extremely easy and planning a wedding in a foreign country even easier.  Alberto and his team were always available by email or skype and everything they arranged was wonderful.  Even the paperwork for a legal and catholic wedding wasn’t too bad with the help of Alberto’s team.  In terms of your specific questions, my overall opinion is that I highly recommend their services and they did an excellent job.  They are definitely a credible company.  I know they are registered and have some insurance (I can’t tell you exactly what type of insurance…it was in the contract, though).  I honestly don’t have really any negatives. 
Here’s a link for the pictures that my sister took (professional photos aren’t ready yet):

Helga,
 
Tim and I want to thank you most sincerely for all the effort that you put into to making Lesley and Andy's special occasion a resounding success.
 
All your advice and guidance on every aspect of the arrangements were just spot on and your attention to detail made the whole 3/4 day event run very smoothly. We could not have arranged the legal side of the wedding without your expertise and we are also very happy with the music, flowers and photographer which you selected.
 
All this took much of the worry away from us and I know that Lesley was really relaxed in the knowledge that all the arrangements were in your capable hands.
 
We have received countless expressions of thanks from those who were present and people could just not believe how splendid the venue, location and arrangements were.

We are just sorry that it is all over because we had the most marvellous time.
 
The food and wine were excellent and the service from the entire Hotel staff was impeccable. We have written separately to Marcella as she also played her part in making the event run like clockwork.
 
Once again very many thanks and perhaps we will see you the next time that we are in Tuscany.
 
Very best regards,

Ciao, Sonia,

First, I want to say how VERY pleased we were with all your help with our wedding.  Here are my comments about all the arrangements:

Pre-wedding planning and documents:  although getting all the proper documents together was a lot of work, you made everything very clear and we knew exactly what we needed.  We thank you so much for making arrangements with the Genoa consulate to take care of our papers by mail so that we did not have to move our wedding date.  We appreciated all your help, and you answered all our questions promptly.

Comune di Positano: everyone at the town hall was so nice.  The woman we met with the day before the wedding (I think her name was Silvana) helped us with our last minute paperwork, and was so sweet to us.

The hairdresser did a lovely hairstyle, and I was very pleased.  Thank you for arranging to have the little roses for my hair.

The flowers were BEAUTIFUL!  I did not think the florist would be able to reproduce the bouquet that I liked, but they did.  It was perfect, just what I wanted.

The ceremony:  Mrs. D'Amato was wonderful, and obviously very happy for us.  The terrace was lovely with the little flowers on the railing.  It rained just before the ceremony, but the sky cleared in time for us to be married outside on the terrace.  Afterward there was a rainbow!!  The vice mayor was very nice, and the musicians were great.

The reception at Next2 was lovely.  The food and the service were perfect.  They even let us play "our song" ("At Last", sung by Etta James) which we brought on a CD so we could dance.

Villa delle Palme was WONDERFUL.  Our room was pleasant with a beautiful view of the sea.  The owners were so very nice.  It felt like staying with family.  If we return to Positano, we will stay there again.

Again, thank you for everything.  We are SO glad we chose to get married in Italy.  Our wedding was so special and will be a wonderful memory through the years.  Your help made it all possible.  We would be happy to recommend your agency to anyone thinking of getting married in Italy.  We wish you well.

Hi Sonia & Alberto,
Our wedding day was wonderful - thank you so much for all your help.  We are happy for you to use our comments on your website. 

Everything went smoothly and it was easy for us to enjoy the day, thanks to your fantastic organisation.  Even though it was a simple wedding for just the two of us, it would have been impossible (not to mention stressful!!) for us to have planned this on our own from Australia. 

Your colleague Daniela who helped us with the paperwork in Milan was lovely.  Your advice and options for where to get married were really helpful, and we were so happy to have chosen the charming town of Treviso.  Leading up to our wedding, I loved receiving your helpful and friendly emails.  The day itself was splendid, and we both look back very fondly on it.  The flowers were beautiful.  The hair and makeup were great.  Everything was just right.  All in all, it was splendid. 

And, did I tell you that we saw Johnny Depp on our wedding day.  Yes, the movie star!!  Did you plan that too?? :)

Many Thanks,
Rachael

Right from day one you were quick to respond to any questions we had and were more than happy to carry out any requests. We couldn’t have asked for better service and the photos were great too. You really did make the whole process stress free. Thankyou again from the bottom of our hearts.

We had a fantastic time in Venice. The weather was not as nice as we would have hoped for but on the day of the wedding the sun came out.
 
We could not have done this without you. You guided us through the formalities in both this country and also in Italy. It was a real comfort to know that you were arranging things in Italy for us. The flowers were perfect, I had pretty well left it up to you to choose and they were lovely.  Not only did they look beautiful, they had a real fragrance, even the officiate at the ceremony remarked on the perfume!  We loved Luisella, she made us feel so relaxed. The wedding ceremony was perfect..what more can you say! It was all that we wanted, just the two of us and the witnesses (who were also really nice).
 
We were touched by the good wishes of total strangers throughout the day and this made our wedding day very special.
 
Our photographer Valerio was a nice guy and we really look forward to seeing the photos that he took.
 
We are more than happy for you to use any of these comments for references or for your website. 
 
very kind regards

Hi again Tina,

First of all ,we would both like to thank you and your colleagues for all the work you did to organise our wedding in Venice this April.
Although things didn't exactly go to plan because of the volcanic ash ,we still had a wonderful day. 

The flowers were absolutely beautiful. Red and Ivory Roses a great choice. The guitar was lovely as background music during the ceremony.  The venue itself was classic venetian style and elegantly furnished.  Even the registrar warmed to us at the end.

The ceremony was very moving & emotional.  We particularly liked the italian vows.  It was great that you managed to arrange the web cam link for us at the last moment so that absent family & friends were able to watch.  Apparently they were in floods of tears too.  Wish we had a web cam of them too!

Afterwards we were taken through the streets to St Marks Square by the photographer and enjoyed the attention given to us by both the locals & tourists alike.  We felt like film stars for the day with all the rapturous applause. 

We celebrated by going to Harry's Bar for Bellinis - a fitting place don't you think?.

To summarise it was a very stress free wedding day. The people involved friendly & professional.

A huge thanks to you and Sonia for all your efforts. Especially, in an ever changing climate & circumstances.

Kind regards from Scotland

Hi Tina,
 
We just arrived back in Arizona about midnight last night.
 
Please give me a couple days to get back with you showing our gratitude and thanks for all your help.  I will prepare something specific for you to share with others on your website, etc...  and will be happy for you to use us as references for your future clients.  By the way, because of all the chaos that the volcano created) the couple that we met in Los Angeles did not make it to Siena for their wedding.  I'm not sure -  but I think she might be trying to reschedule it for Italy again and this time if she decides she wants to use a wedding planner, I will be sending her to you directly.
 
In the meantime, know that we are so very happy we worked with you & Giovanna & Sonia, etc...  Everyone with Wedding Italy is appreciated!!!
Tina, not only are you very professional; but, you made it a very fun & enjoyable experience.  Personally speaking, I feel very blessed that we were able to move forward with almost everything that we (you and I and Marc) took the time to plan.  It is very unfortunate that my parents did not make it in; but, I know in my heart that they did everything they could do to get there and that there is no way anyone could have predicted or planned for a volcano eruption. 
 
Many people might say this with good intentions - but you have a place is our lives now and if you have the time - please stay in touch with us.  If you come to the US, we would like to meet you; and, know that you are invited to stay anytime.
 
By the way, you might want to see pictures of our "global wedding party".   They are angels in disguise.
Again, please give me a couple of days to get organized back at home.  I actually had customers calling me in Italy the past couple of days needing me to get back with them as soon as I got home.
 
Ciao Ciao (for now).  I will get back with you soon!!

Thank you so much for arranging our wedding in Venice at the Palazzo Cavalli.  It was a perfect day!
It was all handled without any stress and really quickly from the initial enquiry just a month before the big day!
Everyone involved with the arrangements was lovely and made it really special for us.  I loved the flowers and the setting was perfect too overlooking the Rialto bridge - the weather was just right – maybe you had a hand in that too?!
The plush water taxi ride before the service and Gondola ride afterwards were unique and special.
I would recommend anyone to use your services for a Venetian wedding!  You have our respect and gratitude.
Thanks again,

Hi Sonia,
 
Thanks for the best wishes.
 
The wedding was fantastic and we really enjoyed the stay in Rome with our family and friends. Your assistant Eli was very helpful to us when we met her on the Thursday and then once again on the day of the wedding. We found her to be very friendly and she did make sure everything was very smooth on the day.
 
We have to say thank you for the flowers you arranged- these were perfect and exactly what we had in mind. The photographer was also very attentive and did spend a lot of time taking many pictures and so we are excited to see the results.
 
Overall we are more than happy with the arrangements- paticularly as we made things difficult by leaving so much to do in the days leading up to the wedding! (sorry for that!...) - and would be happy to be used as a reference for you and would happily recommend anyone wanting to marry in Italy to use your services.
 
Please feel free to contact us if you need us for any more feedback.
 
Thanks to you and you team for helping us on our special day.
 
Best Regards,

Wedding Italy was extremely helpful with all our arrangements for our wedding on Capri.  The legal process of marrying in Italy was explained clearly and any questions we had were always answered promptly and in detail.  Our contact Sonia was lovely and she dealt with all our requests very efficiently.  The representative on the ground was also very helpful and we felt we were in good hands on the day.  I would definitely recommend Wedding Italy if you are planning an Italian wedding!

Hi Tina,

We returned from Italy yesterday and had such an amazing time! Thank you so much for everything that you did to make the wedding run so smoothly. Everything was perfect and I can not say enough good things about everyone in Malcesine.

I remember reading that it usually took about a month for couples to receive their pictures after the wedding. Is there anyway to expedite that process? We are having a reception in two weeks and I want to have pictures to share with our guest. Please let me know if there is anyway Giuseppe could send those to us sooner and when I can expect them to arrive. (we absolutely loved him by the way!!)

Thanks so much again for all your help.

Emily Headley

Hi Sonia
 
Sorry for the delay in my reply, but i'm only just back from my honeymoon!
 
I'd be happy for you to use any of my comments.
 
The wedding was perfect. The weather had been really bad before the wedding and I was a bit worried that we would have to get married inside, as the outside venue was the main reason we chose Positano. It didn't rain during the ceremony and the sun even came out! The interpreter genuinely seemed very happy for us and she made it more special with her enthusiasm. I was very happy that we had the violinist and he started playing just at the right moments.
I would recommend getting married in Positano to anyone.
 
Many thanks for all your help Sonia.
Thanks
 
Vikki

Hello Tina,
 
We're back and we just had our legal ceremony in the US on Monday! 
 
Malcesine was amazing!  We had such a fantastic time and couldn't have asked for a better wedding.
 
Beatrice and Guiseppe were incredibly warm and kind - it was a perfect day.  We can't wait to see the pictures. 
 
What is the realistic time frame that we should expect?
 
Thank you so much for coordinating our wonderful wedding in Malcesine and purchasing our train tickets.
 
Best regards,
 
Jessica Cho

Ciao Sonia and Helga,
We are so happy to have had your help through the extensive process of the legalities and formalities of a destination wedding. 
You were our translators, consultants, and advisers.  With you we entrusted the fate of our wedding day, one that united our 16 year friendship into a beautiful marriage.  Your suggestions on a place to stay, time of day and location for an open air ceremony, were exactly what we had hoped - it was perfect.  Helga thank you for pulling together the spur of the moment flower requests, and helping me with that veil!  It was a perfect beginning for our future together.

Dear Helga

I hope you are well! I am sure you are in the middle of 'wedding season' right now and very, very busy!!

I just wanted to send you a couple of pictures from our wedding and some feedback.

The wedding and the service was seamless, even when there was concern it might rain we never felt worried or stressed that you didn't have the situation under complete control.  Your constant contact during the months preceding the wedding was invaluable to us, particulary considering I lost my Mum so close to the actual day. 

I can't fault the venue, Marcello and his team in anyway, they exceeded every expectation we had.  We can't fault you or your service either, it was everything we dreamed of.  A thousand thank yous.

The only small thing I would have changed was the opera singer and violinist was difficult to hear as I walked up the aisle, and in an ideal world (ie. if we hadn't been threatened with rain) I would have loved to have them outside.

With warmest wishes to you and thank you again

We couldn't be happier with the service, professionalism and expertise demonstrated to us by our Weddings Italy wedding planner, Helga Marcks.  The regular and prompt responses to any queries whether they were big or small ensured we felt very supported, involved and confident in the arrangements for our wedding day.  The whole process was stress-free and very enjoyable. Helga listened to our ideas of what we wanted and planned for our wedding day to be exactly as we had hoped and more!! Her contacts in the wedding industry are outstanding.  A great number of our guests said that the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding and many reported it was the best wedding they'd been to.

We wholeheartedly agree!!!

Hi Helga, just got back home this week.  Everything went great the day of the wedding for us. The ceremony went good, the celebrant was nice and professional, the photographer was good, she gave us lots of direction and different choices for picture ideas, and the dinner was great, as was the service.  We will definitely recommend your service to anyone else interested in getting married in Italy.

Hallo liebe Helga
Wie geht es Ihnen? Ich hoffe doch gut!

Ja das ist wohl war…wir haben wirklich wunderbare Erinnerungen mit nach Hause genommen -  es war so traumhaft schön J
Sie und Giovanna haben das alles ganz toll organisiert – Tausend Dank noch einmal dafür. Giovanna ist ja auch so herzlich gewesen!
Davon werden wir ein Lebenslang zerren können…
Entschuldigen Sie bitte für die verspätete Antwort, aber wir haben so schrecklich viele Fotos gemacht und bis ich die alle auf einer
CD hatte, hat es ein wenig gedauert…Aber nun kann ich Ihnen endlich eine kleine Auswahl zu senden!

Da mein Mann direkt nach unserem Urlaub beruflich nach Frankfurt gegangen ist, waren wir am WE meist mit Umzug oder Wäsche
Machen beschäftigt, weil noch das ein oder andere in FFM fehlt.. :) ich war leider noch nicht in der Stadt um das versprochene Dankeschön
Für SIE zu besorgen, aber diesen Samstag werden wir das in Angriff nehmen. Das habe ich nicht vergessen :)

Viele liebe Grüße
Sabrina & Marc Lücke

Hello Helga

We have arrived home from our honeymoon, we are both still overwhelmed and amazed by our wedding day. Everyone who attended has commented on how wonderful they thought it was. Thank you does not feel like a big enough word when I think about all the effort you put in to making our day perfect in every way. You are a very talented lady! I enjoyed talking to you very much. If you and your family ever want to travel to the north of England you will always be welcome to stay with me, rob and my family. You will forever be in my prayers.
Love and thanks

Helga,
 
Tim and I want to thank you most sincerely for all the effort that you put into to making Lesley and Andy's special occasion a resounding success.
 
All your advice and guidance on every aspect of the arrangements were just spot on and your attention to detail made the whole 3/4 day event run very smoothly. We could not have arranged the legal side of the wedding without your expertise and we are also very happy with the music, flowers and photographer which you selected.
 
All this took much of the worry away from us and I know that Lesley was really relaxed in the knowledge that all the arrangements were in your capable hands.
 
We have received countless expressions of thanks from those who were present and people could just not believe how splendid the venue, location and arrangements were.

We are just sorry that it is all over because we had the most marvellous time.
 
The food and wine were excellent and the service from the entire Hotel staff was impeccable. We have written separately to Marcella as she also played her part in making the event run like clockwork.
 
Once again very many thanks and perhaps we will see you the next time that we are in Tuscany.
 
Joyce and Tim (the parents)
