Being a wedding planner in Tuscany

As you surely know I love Fall weddings: mild temperatures, bright colors
and above all avoiding the scorching hot Summer sun. This last September I
had the pleasure to be the wedding planner of the most lovely and nice
couple I’ve had this year: Francesca and Tom. I met Francesca and his
passionate mom last April when they first came to select their favorite
venue from the bunch I had selected for them. It was love at first sight
with a nice Fattoria (farmhouse) in the middle of Tuscany between then
Chianti and Arezzo regions. The great landscape, good food and the nice
accommodation made it easy for Francesca and her mom to choose that spot for the wedding.
The planning was quite easy as the bride already knew what
she wanted, a relaxed country wedding with lots of pastel flowers and a
great party with family and friends. So step by step we booked all the
suppliers to help organize and build the Big Day. Once we met back at the
Fattoria in September for the last trial and I saw Peter, the husband, he
shared that he had an announcement to make: Francesca was pregnant and
they were very happy to discover it before coming to Tuscany! With tears in
my eyes I decided to buy a present for this couple and it was a real
challenge choose between all these lovely baby things in the shop! Anyway,
time was running fast and I had to drive up and downhill to get to the
Fattoria to be on time for the bride preparation Francesca was very relaxed
and we went together with some of her bridesmaids in the living room to get ready .

Hair and make up artists were waiting for us and then Francesca’s Dad came
in with a bottle of Prosecco to calm down the nerves 😉

The photographer was there to start taking picture of the getting ready
and the florist also came to set up the ceremony and deliver bouquets and
corsages for women. In a moment the whole party was ready to go down the
aisle! The music started playing and the Major officiant? could celebrate
the rite with a nice poem read especially for the newlyweds. After the
ceremony, all the people moved to the upper garden to take some family
pictures and were delighted by a grande aperitivo served in the garden. A
couple of hours after a little bit of rain started so we had to move inside
for the last pictures and the dinner.

Tables were ready inside the main Sala della Macina (the old mill) and the
wedding breakfast started with a speech by the father of the bride. What he
said brought tears to everyone in the room; remembering Francesca’s
childhood. The best pa rt of course was when the groom Peter announced that they would soon be parents! An explosion of applause and rounds of congrats to the bride and groom. A beautiful evening ensued, with the most
spectacular moments including the cutting of the cake and dancing until the
wee hours of the morning. A perfect, unforgettable night and wedding!
