Now that I have a bit more time to relax I started writing some posts about all the events I did last year: Samantha and Gia was surely one that I will never forget! It all began with a phone call:I was driving when Stephanie called me to ask if I wanted to help her for her sister’s wedding in Tuscany. She had already choose a nice villa in the Chianti region and I know this area very well as I’ve been living there for many years. When I first visited the villa I discovered this luxury hamlet with a gorgeous Spa in some of the main Suites. The panorama from the house is incredible as it leans all over the landscape of Panzano. The day of the wedding as soon as I arrived I went to the suite of the girls where Suely was taking care of their hair and make up: the bridal party was there to take some pictures during the “getting ready”.
Being a wedding planner in Florida herself she carefully thought about all small details of the brides and the table: Gia and Samantha wore two white leather jackets with her name and wedding date on and they had the same pair of white trainers made with lace that matched their dresses. It was a very emotional moment when Samantha read the letter that Gia wrote her the day before!!
The table was set up without tablecloth in the most typical country chic style, decorated with white ceramic dishes and ivory napkins, cristal glasses with gold rim and golden silverware. All the guests had a name tag made of transparent plexiglas that was paired with a small shot of liquor especially made for the wedding. Every women had a pashmina scarf on their chair to cover her shoulders in case they get cold. The cocktail after the ceremony was served in the terrace area while the dinner was outside in the garden of the Villa Delle Donne.
Chianti Cooking experience took care of both moments, the pizza party the day before and the wedding dinner that ended up with a yummy 3 tiers wedding cake served with a nice transparent topper with the name of the brides. The sun shine during the whole day and all the guests ended up dancing under the starts with the music of Lorenzo Borneo’s dj. I am really thankful to Stephanie who invited me to this wedding and gave me the opportunity to know these 2 incredible families. I’m sure that Gia and Samantha will have a great future together and even more with the love of all their relatives and friends!
