We both are very, very happy to say that Helga not only met those expectations, but she far exceeded them! The whole time I couldn't believe I was actually living in the fairy tale she created for us and the day after, my wife cried because everything turned out to be so perfect and beautiful!!!
My wife and I decided to get married in Italy (I'm from the US & my wife is from Germany), so that we could make it equally inconveniant for all of our guests to travel too, BUT in a beautiful place filled with the best food & wine, rich history, and beautiful landscapes. However, we had no idea how to make our wedding dream come true.
So we searched on the internet and came upon the website for WeddingItaly.com and looked up Helga as our possible wedding planner. We had read some reviews and were very excited by what other couples had to say about her, so we started listening to what she could put together for our "Italian Wedding."
I will say that we made Helga work hard for her fee because we didn't sign a contract or put down any wedding deposit for 3 months during our initial planning process! For over 15 months, Helga was answering all our questions, giving us suggestions, and making us feel absolutely comfortable that when the big day came, all we had to do was show up!
She helped us plan a Chianti group wine trip, family dinner reservations, an amazing church (ask her about the story on the Chiesa Orsanmichele) with the best choir and organist that made our guests cry and giving them chills, scheduling our photographer and a car to drive us around Florence for some truly one-of-a-kind photos, and then again hitting it out of the park for our rooftop reception with some professional Italian folk trio entertainers who nailed their goal- making the bride cry from joy!
I have to admit that when we were packing for our wedding and had the final itinerary in hand, it was just words on paper to me. My wife, however, had a very high expectation that we create 'the Wedding Experience' that encompassed and pushed all of the senses of our guests. We both are very, very happy to say that Helga not only met those expectations, but she far exceeded them! The whole time I couldn't believe I was actually living in the fairy tale she created for us and the day after, my wife cried because everything turned out to be so perfect and beautiful!!!
If you're planning on getting married in Italy, then look no further than Helga. She will create the ultimate 'Wedding Experience' and you'll truly have some overwhelmingly beautiful memories to look back upon!!!
Helga, you rock!
