To all of these reading this blog, surely you were looking for some advice on how to plan your wedding day since months and now…well, let’ s say that we are all postponing our plans….. only for a few months! Here in Italy we’ve been hitten in a hard way by this virus so what I really want to do now that I have some time to spend at home is reading and thinking about how to organize ( if possible) nicer events than these I’ve planned last year and how to continue doing it in the future. As I got plenty of time to browse all my favorite websites like SMP, Rock my wedding, my own Pinterest board to get some inspiration I already know it will be not that difficult. Give me one more month and I’ll be as busy as always planning visits to new venues for my couples and new magical weddings! I was just looking for some pictures to show on IG and I found these of a lovely day last July.
When I got the first contact from K&L was exactly the opposite of today : they wrote me 2 years before their wedding date as they got my contact from a venue owner that was not able to help their big group. I was in the middle of a hot wedding season and I felt so bad I couldn’t go with them to visit venues….. I started thinking on how to help this young couple when my assistant Rebecca called me to offer support and drive them around Tuscany. After 2 days visiting venue they found the one who touched their hearts and decided to sign a contract with both, the venue and me. It was a long distance planning even f they came back twice to Tuscany to select suppliers and do food tastings: there were many different moments during the three days they stayed at Le Filigare and it all started the first day with a Tea Ceremony: having the groom asian origins their parents wanted to follow the tradition with a typical tea ceremony, where the couple offer some presents to the parents that in this way allow them to get married and wish good luck for their new life as a married couple.
The following day it all started after breakfast wit hotel preparation of bride and groom party in two different apartments:
the sun was really hot so, as the wedding ceremony was held on the top of a hill, they decided to postpone the original plan and having the blessing at 5pm. Just after the ceremony drinks and some canapés where served by the pool while Britpops where singing some songs for us. As the sun was no more scorching we decided it was time to move to the upper part of the farmhouse where a nicely decorated green and white table was waiting for us. The newly weds carefully selected each dish of their wedding dinner and to be honest when I sat down and had the first bite of tagliolini with black truffle I couldn’t think to anything else than this delicious pasta!
A great beef fillet was following and when the wedding cake arrived it was spectacular: a traditional Italian millefoglie decorated with figs and olive leaves, to die for! I’m sure all guests loved it as there were just a few pieces left that were brought upstairs were the party started: Britpops began the show as well as Alberto and his mate were serving non stop drinks. Look at the nice cutie 500 Fiat they received as present from the open bar company ! It was a magical night and I didn’t want to leave but another hard day of planning was waiting so I had to stay goodbye to this magical place wishing to get back very soon! To all of you still thinking about a nice wedding in Tuscany: have a look at these pictures: they really share the feeling of relax and amusement they had in these days and hop they convince all of you there reading to drop me a few lines despite the hard moment we’re in! 😉
