– Are you confused about where to start planning your destination wedding in Tuscany?

– Concerned about the complicated paperwork of getting married in Italy and the challenges of planning everything from a distance when you don’t speak the language?

– Worried about whether the venues you find online will really look that good in person?

If so, it’s not your fault!  Planning a wedding in Italy is a lot of work and it’s normal to be frustrated and overwhelmed.  I felt the same way when I first came to Italy.

If you’re like most brides planning a wedding, you are probably spending long hours researching Italy weddings online and asking for advice from other brides. Relying on websites, reviews and online wedding planning timelines SEEMS like the best way to get the inspiration you need to plan your dream wedding in Tuscany.  

But even after all this research, you end up confused and overwhelmed by all the options and you still don’t know where to start!  It’s easy to waste money and your precious time dealing with wedding professionals and venues that don’t live up to expectations.

What you really need is to discover the perfect wedding style and venue to match your unique personality first.  Then you can avoid the confusion and stress of trying to figure out where to start and who to trust, so planning your very special day is simple and fun.

  • When I first began planning my wedding, I was not sure where to begin. Cindy first listened to my dreams and ideas about what I envisioned for the day. She then quickly got to work. Cindy offered her personal opinion and expertise when needed. She made my life easier during the year that the wedding was getting planned. There were even times when I thought to myself that maybe I am not doing enough to help plan. However, she reassured me that everything is under control and that our timeline is still intact. Cindy recommended the most professional vendors and those who are real artists. The day of the wedding was flawless. Cindy ran a perfect schedule and helped to propel the wedding along, so that I did not have to lift a finger. I was completely speechless when I saw the set-up of my table. Cindy recommended the most perfect florist. I honestly do not think the wedding day could have happened without Cindy’s guidance and support. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and caring individual. Cindy puts in so much time and works out every detail to be perfect. She puts her heart and soul into making your dreams become a reality. One thing I learned from this experience is to trust. Throughout the year, Cindy presented some ideas that she thought would fit my dreams and visions of the wedding day. Even when I thought what she was presenting was out of this world and may not be exactly what I saw, I gave my trust to her. And boy, am I happy that I did. She presented a picture perfect day.

  • There doesn’t seem like a paper big enough to possibly hold the amount of words to explain how grateful we are to you. You truly helped to plan the wedding of our dreams. From the first phone call, your confidence, reassurance and genuine excitement for us made me know that without a doubt, you were “the one!” And, for nine months you proved this to be true time and time again during the planning process. Your efforts and persistence to help us find the perfect venue were above and beyond. Your creativity and attention to detail made all the difference. Ultimately, I was overwhelmed with how everything came together so seamlessly that weekend! It was first class, with a  fun, casual sophistication that I had hoped for. It was obvious that your easy going but very professional personality and great relationships with all of our vendors was the key to the perfect event! I honestly missed your smiling face the second we had to say goodbye.   After all, you had become not only a friend, but part of our “famiglia.”

  • Cindy did an excellent job!   She is knowledgeable, organized, gracious, and personable. It was no surprise that we quickly became friends. It was also beneficial that she is multi-ligual. We thought it would be a challenge to organize our daughter’s wedding long distance from the U.S.  Our concerns were quelled after our first conversation with Cindy. She was very punctual on calls and Skypes and responsive to emails. Also, we had numerous calls during the evening hours which Cindy took from her home. She sacrificed family time to make sure the  wedding was a success. Cindy recommended excellent vendors blending our taste and style with theirs. Through Cindy’s efforts, we had a ‘fairytale  wedding’ and beautiful memories of our daughter’s Tuscany wedding that will last a lifetime.

  • We planned the Wedding from the United States, and everything seemed impossible since we had never been in Italy nor speak the language. Cindy made everything so easy and accessible! every single step went smoothly, stress free, and the day of the wedding was more than perfect. I would recommend this wedding planner to every bride who wants to relax and enjoy this happy time. Cindy takes care of you all the way through, and I can definitely say you can trust her with all the decisions if you needed to. She takes the time to get to know you and what your vision is for the big day, and that puts every bride at ease.

  • From the very start, Cindy listened to all our ideas and helped us to bring them together into something that flowed really well over the whole four-day celebration. The process of choosing the main vendors, which we thought would be a nightmare from here in the UK, was made totally painless through Cindy’s excellent connections and relationships with highly professional suppliers.  Every supplier she introduced us to was highly skilled in their field and great to work with and this made our lives so much easier. On a personal level she was tremendous fun to work with and we thoroughly enjoyed our visits to Italy to meet up with her. She calmed me down when I was stressed and acted as mediator when James and I disagreed – I cannot imagine how we would have got through it all without her support. Thank you so much, we will never forget our special day!

  • I had no doubt in hiring Cindy as my wedding planner, as I know her personally and I was sure that she was the right person to help me with the wedding I always dreamed about. She gave us a great guidance since the beginning, when we had no idea of what to do. We shared an idea of what we would like for the wedding, and she took care of every detail, always aiming to meet our expectations and giving us a lovely party. I would totally recommend you to work with her, you can be sure that you are in good hands! Thank you Cindy!

  • Paulo and I want to say thank you for all of your help with our wedding and vacation. Everything about the wedding was perfect! It will be a memory that we will cherish forever. All of our guests loved everything about our wedding. We could not have pulled together this beautiful wedding without you. Thank you!

  • Awesome!!! working with Cindy was amazing!  When I first started planning my wedding, I was completely overwhelmed.  Then we met Cindy, and we immediately began to relax. When we met, I had no idea what to look for in a wedding consultant.  You took me by the hand, told me the questions to ask and made me feel completely comfortable.  It felt like we were meeting with a friend over coffee! Thank you so much for being there for making the planning so easy and my wedding amazing! A million thanks.  I will highly recommend your services.

  • I loved working with Cindy! When we first decided to get married in Italy, I search online to see what paperwork, etc needed to be done and quickly found out that I needed help. Cindy took care of everything! We would not have been able to have a beautiful wedding in Italy (and have it be legal in the US) without her help. Cindy also took care of all of the wedding details from booking the rehearsal dinner at our favorite restaurant in San Gimignano to working with the villa in Tavarnelle val di Pesa on all of the ceremony details. Cindy was an absolute joy to work with! Thank you Cindy for everything!
