Jennifer & Michael Pool

How can we describe how wonderful our wedding was, thanks mostly to the hard work and great taste of Alberto, our WeddingItaly planner.  We first had the idea of getting married in Italy but were put off by the thought of trying to find and negotiate with suppliers and venues, and dealing with accommodation for our guests.  Our co-ordinator AlbertoCiani handled all these details for us and we were left to the pleasant business of choosing among the various alternatives Alberto provided.  He quickly assessed our budget and found things to our taste within this budget, and he steered us away from common pitfalls.

We were married in a beautiful 14-century palazzo, and we hired the entire place so that the family could all stay together for the wedding weekend. Our wedding had 100 guests, mostly from Europe and the Americas.  We did the civil wedding in our home country of the UK, and we followed that with our wedding celebration in Italy.  This was a stress-free way to get married and have the flexibility to use any vows we wished in our Italian ceremony.  (None of our guests knew that our ceremony wasn't the legal one, and that really had no impact on the day.)

Alberto co-ordinated all the details including accommodation and travel assistance for the guests, planning extra events the week of the wedding, negotiating with suppliers, and dealing with any and all last minute details.  He was organized, and always responded immediately to our many questions and concerns.  He even managed to acquire live chickens for us
when a family member decided that he wished to perform a magic trick two days before the wedding -- clearly above and beyond the call of duty for a wedding planner!  The photographer and videographer Alberto provided were excellent, as were the catering, venue, and music.  The officiant and the translator were both charming, professional and knowledgeable.

Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended (including their own!). We had always heard that planning a wedding (especially planning a wedding for 100 people in a foreign country) is an extremely stressful and trying time for a couple and that you are so busy running around that you don't really get to enjoy the day yourselves.  In our case, because of Alberto's work, this was absolutely the opposite of what we felt.  With Alberto handling all the stress before, during, and after the wedding, we were free to just enjoy the entire period.  Planning our wedding was one of the
most fun things we've done, and the three days of the wedding weekend were definitely the best three days in our lives!
