Ciao, Tina! Joey and I couldn't be happier. We cannot say enough good things about the tremendous job you did for our wedding. It may sound cliche, but our wedding day was truly unforgettable and I am positive there is no way we could have done it without you. Everything was perfect!
Our translator in Milan was an absolute charm (her name escapes me right now). She was very professional, efficient and so nice! She even offered to help us find good shopping (is there anything but good shopping in Milan?)
Loredana was wonderful, too. With her help (and undoubtedly yours) we were able to meet with the Town Hall to do our declaration even though we missed our train and the woman there agreed to issue the declaration even though the date was off on the Nulla Osta (which Joey, the translator in Milan and I checked over twice!). Loredana also made sure every detail was in place on our wedding day - she organized my bridesmaids, our parents (these are not easy tasks), and made sure everyone was inside before my car pulled up. Speaking of, what a cool car! I think the fact that the car was so cool kept my dad calm while he picked me up and Joey was totally fascinated. The minibus was really nice, too - my oh-so-charming (not) bridesmaids were less than thrilled that they'd be riding in a bus and they actually liked it!
As I climbed the stairs to the church I could hear Canon in D and see the lights twinkling. It was a moment I will always remember. The musicians were so good and the church was so beautiful and everything was just so perfect, Tina. Our priest was so kind, too. It would have been nice to have met with him the day before (Father Marco was wonderful but I think a lot was lost in translation) but the comedy of the disorganization with Father German helped keep Joey and me calm and laughing during the ceremony.
I cannot say enough about Annalisa and the Imperiale. Joey and I were stunned the day before at our luncheon (which was so nice and romantic - a perfect afternoon before the wedding day). We could not believe how much food they prepared for us and how GOOD it was! They baked us a whole cake just to try and make sure it was okay! They even made a sugar sculpture for the two of us! We met the head barman, had two waiters - the executive chef even came out to meet us! We felt like movie stars - it was amazing. We also could not believe that we had two terraces, two lounges and even our own bathroom! What a beautiful, perfect location for our reception.
The flowers were incredible. I was very sad I could not take them home with me. My mother and the bridesmaids loved them and Isabella really liked her basket (I did too - I put it in the box with my wedding dress to be shipped home!). The centerpieces and candles were so romantic. I just cannot rave enough about how amazing the day was. My wedding day was so perfect and so beautiful - I dreamed of that day my whole life and it surpassed my expectations and even my dreams - it was just so wonderful. I honestly have never been so happy - Joey and I are so pleased.
Please send our thanks to Loredana and Daniella (there! I remembered it!) as well as Annalisa and everyone at the Imperiale. We are truly grateful for everything that you all did to make our day unforgettable. Please feel free to share our thoughts on your website and Joey and I would be more than willing to be in contact with any other couples that may ask. Also, should any couples request to see pictures or video, we are more than happy to share! Our day was just amazing and we'd be happy to help other couples so that their day may be as happy as ours!
Tina, thanks cannot do justice to how grateful Joey and I are for your services. It has been a pleasure working with you.
