When A&A called me to help planning their wedding in Tuscany I was having a coffee in a bar with a friend: Hey, we’re in Siena, will you be available to meet us tomorrow and discuss about our plans? Why not… I thought, December is quite a relaxing month for us wedding planners so let’s meet this young couple. They already found a great villa to host all of their guests closer and the caterer was organized as they had a specific idea of the dishes they wanted for their wedding dinner.
The bridal party and closer family stayed in the suites of the villa while all the friends were getting ready in the other apartment. Close tho the wedding hour, when we had already half of the table prepared for dinner it started rain and we had to run taking off all brass chandeliers from the table not to break them!!
The villa had a big ballroom that we could have used for the dinner but we waited a bit and at the end we decided to delay the ceremony for an hour so to give time to waiters to rearrange for the dinner. The villa has two lovely gardens and lots of green woods and areas all around so we decided to move the ceremony to the garden on the back part of the villa: it was a touching ceremony where the mom of the bride made a reading who touched the hearth of all the guests. After the wedding ceremony people moved to the gate entrance for some group pictures and the aperitif started. The waiters served Spritz ( italian cocktail made with white wine and Aperol liquor) and bubbles to keep guests entertained until the dinner time. While bride and groom were talking pictures with Carmela and Sissi I tried to rearrange the decoration with Agriflor girls that were always there to grant the best service possible even with that horrible weather!
So the choice was on Delizia Ricevimenti where I met the lovely Giulia who helped me throughout the planning and the choice of food and drinks: the villa has a
romantic Italian garden with fountains where we decided to have a small “smoking corner” made with umbrellas and white rattan sofas. All items for decoration and dancing area were rented from Toscana Noleggio: and when dinner time came the Bride and Groom made their first speech as a married couple under a pergola of wisteria perfectly decorated with fresh flowers. The delicious dishes served where a mix of caribbean and italian cuisine, with a touch of spicy in all of them: ravioli, chicken and a chocolate dessert to die for! The wedding cake was covered with white cream and flowers that matched the style of all decorations: it was only a few seconds after they cut the cake that the party starts as the Dj coming from outside already started playing music!
As soon as he called the Bride and groom everybody started dancing under the fairy lights that were set up by Central house in the swimming pool area. It was a long night full of music and laughs and despite the weather that hasn’t been exactly a summer one we had a lot of fun with them and Im sure A&A will remember their wedding day forever!
