We're back in California and finally settling in after our lovely trip. Thank you again for everything you did for our wedding. As I said to Rosanna, I'm happy to be a reference for DIW and I'll also write a great review on Wedding Wire.
Regarding the questions you sent me for DIW:
Quality of Service - 5 all around
- Responsiveness - Stefania always got back to me within a day of me emailing her with questions. She always had answers to my questions and was very patient with providing me with multiple options. I found her emails very helpful and clear and looked forward to waking up to an email from her nearly every morning :-). Once we were in Italy she always answered my phone calls right away. Also, Rosanna was very helpful in responding quickly when I was having issues with the Italian consulate in LA. I'm very grateful for the help I received with regard to the documents needed for the civil ceremony.
- Professionalism - As I said, Stefania was excellent. Always very professional and kind and I could tell she was very patient with all of my requests and questions. The day of the wedding she was very professional and helpful and attended to every detail I asked her to with great care. She helped ensure that everything was perfect at both the civil ceremony and the symbolic ceremony.
- Value - Given the amazing wedding that we had and the fact that everything went smoothly with our paperwork for the civil ceremony, this was a great value. I would pay that again without hesitation.
- Flexibility - I felt that every suggestion or desire I had was accepted and Stefania did her best to make everything exactly as I wished it to be. She was really wonderful!!
Casa Degli Spiriti - of course, outstanding! We were absolutely in love with the restaurant. The view was magnificent. Everyone was so impressed with the food. The duck in particular had people swooning. Many of our guests said that the wedding cake was the best cake they've ever had! I for one loved the dessert buffet. Sara was fantastic and I could tell she was happy to accommodate all of our requests. I would recommend the venue to anybody without any hesitation - it was truly fantastic. I'm SO happy that we chose Casa Degli Spiriti.
Yasmin was wonderful! She was so patient and sweet and carefully listened to exactly how I wanted my hair and makeup done. She even bought me the lipstick and lip pencil she used so I could refresh it during the reception. I love how she did my makeup and my mother and sister looked gorgeous as well.
Flowers were amazing! Everyone complimented the flower arch and the bouquets and button holes were exactly as I had pictured.
Harpist - the music was lovely and everyone was gushing about how nice the harp music was in the setting.
Piano, sax and violin -all were very lovely.
Thank you for making the wedding of my dreams a reality!
