Hope you are well. Thank you again for all of your help with our wedding.
Below are our impressions of DIW and our wedding:
Planning a wedding is hard work, and planning a destination wedding is even harder! The same amount of work is involved in planning a wedding, whether it is for 10 guests or 200 guests. Thanks to your help, Junko's help, and the rest of the DIW staff, Adam and I had a very beautiful and successful wedding!
It took a lot of trust on our part to have you plan our Florence wedding while we are in California. We were not in Florence, nor could we travel there, to see the church or reception venue options. We only saw pictures of the places.
We particularly like the Villa Hotel because it had a villa-like atmosphere yet still within the city. The hotel had a wonderful view of Florence. The food was delicious! Alina and the staff at the Villa were accommodating and a great pleasure to work with. She gave us a tour of the hotel and walked us through the plans for the reception, including a back up plan in case it rained.
Our hair and makeup stylists were also great! Our hair stylist knew what hair style looked best and our make up stylist made us look beautiful without overdoing the make up. Our flowers and decorations were gorgeous. We enjoyed the harpist, but honestly, I cannot really remember the music during the ceremony because a lot was happening and it was a very emotional time. Our photographer, Alessandro and his assistant Laura, were fantastic and creative! We can't wait to see all of the pictures.
Overall, Adam and I are very happy with DIW's services. All of the vendors were easy to work with and they exceeded our expectations. We are happy to be a reference for future couples planning a wedding with DIW.
Grazie mille and warmest regards,
Abby and Adam
