Luxury Villa Cora Wedding – Carrie and Thomas
WEDDING IN FLORENCE
Our favorite luxury villa hotel was the setting for Carrie and Thomas' GORGEOUS wedding in Florence. And what a setting!
Recently reopened after a 30 million euro renovation the villa overlooking Florence is one of the most spectacular wedding venues in Tuscany.
Luxury does not translate in stuffiness here.......the family owned venue is impeccably managed by a wonderful team that will go the extra mile every time to make sure your stay and event will be unforgettable. Amenities include a superb SPA, outstanding restaurants and the rooms and suites are all different and superb. The villa is the perfect setting for a wedding celebration for up to 90 guests. The Hall of Mirrors is a smaller version of Versailles's........and simply breathtaking. The perfect blend of modern amenities and history has been achieved and the combination is seamless.
The couple celebrated their blessing ceremony in the lovely gardens followed by aperitifs accompanied by an Italian jazz trio. The formal seated dinner was held in the Hall of Mirrors which was set with an imperial table (our favorite!). The evening continued with music and dancing and a final exit lit by sparklers!
"Rosanna and Junko - Thank you so much for all your help for making our dream wedding come true. Initially, we were planning a rustic hamlet wedding in Tuscany but after numerous emails with Rosanna, we came across with this lovely boutique city hotel in Florence that changed everything. We were reviewing different venues from A to Z to decide what fits our needs and dreams for a small and intimate wedding slash reunion and Rosanna was very patient and helpful during the long selection process. I am Asian and my husband is European and we are leaving in Canada. There were lots of logistics to plan and cultural aspects to consider. If you are dreaming of an elegant yet modern wedding, the Villa is the place. The management is fantastic to work with as Rosanna said and the banquet team is top notch!"
