We think is God that send you to us. We felt very secured to have you there to sort everything out for us. Thank you for all you have done for us!
Love on the Tennis Court , The Tuscan Wedding David and I would like to say a big thank you to Daniela from “The Tuscan Wedding” for all the hard work and effort she put into planning our perfect wedding just outside of Florence. We have just returned one week ago and family and friends are still commenting on what a beautiful location and day it was. When we decided to get married in Italy the biggest problem which we were going to face was where could we hold the wedding and also bring in a weeks family holiday for 60 guests. That is where Daniela came into the picture, of all of the event/ wedding planners she was the person which gave us the largest variety of locations, responded quickly during communications and also had a positive attitude and passion for her job. There was no doubting that I could not have organised such a perfect week without the help of Daniela, from communicating with the hotel to organise the multiple apartments needed and organising a welcome BBQ when the guests arrived. She was also responsible for putting me in touch with the florist ( who was fantastic ), organising the musicians, lighting technicians, translators and officials. She managed the set-up and running of the day well and the whole event went smoothy. Finally we wish you luck with your future weddings, yet we are sure they will all be a success as ours was !
Getting married in Florence , The Tuscan Wedding Thank you Daniela for how hard you worked arranging our amazing wedding. The day was spectacular and the level of professionalism of you and your colleagues was out of this world. We Would recommend to anyone………… perfect
Every time I think back about Saturday evening, I want to cry from joy. It was a fabulous evening and an amazing gift! I’m still filled with excitement!” Stefano: During the event, I had this great feeling because I worked with people who love their job. They had a great balance between being professional and friendly. The attention to detail was the main reason the evening was a success. Everything was coordinated to our liking and taste. They are professional, knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. They also have the great ability to convey a feeling of control/order to their clients.
I need to say a massive thank you to our wedding Planner Daniela, she has made our lives so much easier during the whole planning of our wedding, over the many emails and Skype calls we have really got to know her and for those of you that haven’t spoken to her this isn’t just a job for her it’s a passion, so again thank you for everything you have done, we really couldn’t have done it without you! Daniela was fantastic in planning our special day, I would definitely recommend her to anybody that I know that wish to get married in Italy.
Perfect Wedding in Florence!, The Tuscan Wedding Our choice to get married in Italy was completely random. I am originally Japanese and my husband British. When we got engaged earlier last year we both knew we wanted to have our wedding in Tokyo, the city where we met and fell in love almost 7 years ago. So when we visited Tokyo one March weekend and found a gorgeous place, we were immediately ready to start negotiating for the price – only that’s when the horrible 3.11 earthquake hit the city as well.
With ongoing uncertainty in the area we eventually decided not to have our wedding in Tokyo and so we went from almost choosing a place to starting from scratch. I searched through the internet and found 5 wedding planners. Through exchange of emails and interviews over Skype with all 5 of them, I knew I found the one perfect planner when I spoke with Daniela from The Tuscan Wedding. Dani had it all. As a non Italian speaking person who knows nothing about wedding planning or the country, I knew I couldn’t afford to have any language barriers that may lead into “lost in translation”. Whilst I found many occasions of ‘lost in translation’ and also found myself repeating my questions and answers to others I had spoken to, I had no issues with Dani. Dani speaks perfect English, lived in the UK for a long time and also travelled around the world. What she also has beyond her language skills is also her ability to see what people want before they know it themselves! So for someone who is indecisive (me) and sometimes gets easily overwhelmed by many choices to make (also me!) she was perfect. From April to May, Dani and I exchanged emails every other day and spoke every weekend. We needed to find a location and we only had 5 months till the wedding day! In May I decided to fly from NYC to Florence to actually look at 5~6 locations we narrowed down to. Before I knew it I was on a plane to Italy (my husband couldn’t come with me due to work), met up with Dani and spent the next 3 days going from one location to another, food tasting, wine tasting, negotiating and trying hair dressers.
Villa Cora was the second venue we visited on my second day in Florence. I knew this was the place the minute we drove into the parking lot. It had been under construction for nearly 4 years and it had just re-opened in early 2011. This place was by far one of the most beautiful villas I had ever seen – luxurious, new, modern yet classic, great attention to detail, excellent level of service and the food and wine they let us taste was to die for. Above all Villa Cora is located up in the hill surrounded by green but at the same time only 10 minute drive from the city center so I knew this would be very convenient for guests who were flying in from all over the world. My best friend who came with me said she saw spark in my eyes the minute I had walked into the villa. I knew it right there and then! After successfully deciding on the venue and going back to NYC with relief, Dani and I continued to speak every other weekend to decide on other details. Looking back at all the discussions we had, I realize what I appreciated the most about Dani was her ability to put me back on the right track. With so many choices to make and so much information to go through, there were times I was making decisions I never would have if I were in a less overwhelming state. Dani helped me rationalize and reminded me of all the things I was originally looking for, and even gave me advises that always started like this “honey, knowing you and knowing what you like, I would suggest…..” And this was coming from a lady who knew me for a few months! But Dani really did know it all. Late September came quickly. Our wedding was a small, cozy yet intimate one with only about 35 people. We had guests with 8 different nationalities flying in from 7 different countries – a truly international wedding! Our wish was one and only – that we get to spend as much quality time as possible with our closest friends and family, and not just the few hours on the wedding day. Dani helped me arrange dinner for both families to get together, coordinated a full day wine tour and a cocktail party the night before the wedding. The actual wedding day was absolutely amazing. No issues, no drama, everyone was on time, everything went as planned and everyone had a great time. We were extremely lucky with the weather too – warm, sunny and dry, much like the mid summer weather as opposed to late September one. Ceremony took place at 4pm in the Villa Cora garden with a string quartet that Dani arranged for playing in the background. My other best friend’s mother sang Ave Maria beautifully, and our niece threw flower petals and origamis on the isle.
After the ceremony the guests were guided to the roof top of the main building and were taken surprise by the 360 panoramic view of the whole of Florence! Food and wine at the reception was perfect. Speeches were made, people danced and lots of alcohol consumed. The event finished around 3 in the morning with bunch of us jumping into the swimming pool! It was one fabulous day. There were a few last minute demands that were made to Dani (e.g. asking for microphone to be arranged in the garden the day before!) but she made them all happen and delivered on time. After the wedding they also put together video clips that she had originally planned to use for their web advertisement and made it especially as a gift for us. It was so nicely and professionally done – with music and poems playing in the background! We are truly grateful of the work Dani and her staff have put together to make this happen. We could not have asked for better wedding planner – so personal, thoughtful and are all about making the day a perfect one for the bride and the groom. If anyone is ever interested in getting married in Florence, we highly recommend The Tuscan Wedding!!

Wedding in a Vineyard, The Tuscan Wedding We fall in love the first time we met; we decided in few months that we wanted to get married as soon as possible. We wanted a dream destination! We considered few locations but at the end we decided to get married in Florence. We rented a villa in the country side and decided to have a holiday with our closest friends and family. I was completely lost at the beginning so many things to worry about and really not sure where to begin. So I started to look for a wedding planner that could look after everything. After few weeks of research I found a wonderful comment about a previous couple that got married with Daniela. I spoke to other wedding planners previously, but on our first call I got the sensation that they understood exactly what I wanted and what I was looking for! I wanted a simple and relaxed wedding; I am doing a very busy and stressful job and did not want to get stressed about organizing a wedding. In the past I have seen friends get very stressed. I arrived at my wedding very exited but relaxed. I only had to choose what I like, and not have to worry about anything. I would like to express my immense gratitude to Events Angels! They not only organized our weddings also took care of all other aspect of the organization, from the booking the accommodation to the activities of our guest and transportation baby sitter dog sitter! I highly recommend The Tuscan Wedding Staff, I don’t think our wedding could be been like this without you! PS I recommend to get married in Italy if you are a wine and food lovers !
Thank You!, The Tuscan Wedding I don’t know where to start but thank you so much!!! I could honestly not have asked or dreamt of anything more perfect!!! We had the best time and it was without a doubt the best day of our lives. Everything was perfect! And I can’t thank you enough for making it happen! I really enjoyed your help and support and most of all your suggestions. Lots and lots of love.
My Dream Wedding in Tuscany!, The Tuscan Wedding I used The Tuscan Wedding for my Wedding in Italy. I am French and Alex is British, so we did not want to get married in either of these countries, we wanted an alternative one. We choose Tuscany as it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Everything was so special! I got to my wedding of course very excited but calm and relaxed, I knew Daniela had taken care of everything. They surprised me, with many things that were beyond what I was expecting. They made my dream come true! The decoration was stunning, complimenting my perfect location, a wonderful castle and I looked beautiful (other people said that to me I had a light designer that made the place so special and romantic!! I was a bit nervous about the flowers because I wanted to have something very particular, I couldn’t have asked for more. I felt like a princess. Thank you Daniela for supporting me over this, choosing you was the best decision of my life!
Honestly, I know this sounds cliche, but I couldn’t have had a better experience with this planning team. From the first time I talked to her on Skype, I felt like Daniela is the type of person I’ve known my whole life. I was comfortable enough with her to tell her when something wasn’t right and to hug her and cry when I saw her on my wedding day.
Throughout the process, I looked forward to my chats with Dani as well as my visits with her in Italy (we went twice before the actual wedding, to pick the venue and then again for arrangements) and each time I was with her, it was like being with family. Sometimes weddings can be stressful and when things get down to the wire, panic can set in, but she always eased my mind and always got it right.
One of the things I kept saying throughout the wedding is that if I simply showed Daniela 3 pictures of what we wanted, she could have planned the most beautiful wedding without our help at all. She is the type of person who just has a feeling about things and really works to get to know you. She has an innate intuition about putting your personality into what she envisions for your day.
Thank you again for the most wonderful wedding experience! It truly was the best week of Tims and my life! Working with The Tuscan Wedding team was stress free and amazing. Please feel free to use my name as a reference for any American brides if needed.
Just wanted to say again how grateful we are for everything you did for us.
The evening was perfect. Absolutely loved it and everyone thought it was just magical. Thanks so much for pulling it all together. Can’t wait to see the pictures now.
When we decided to get married in Italy we had no idea how to go about planning a wedding abroad but thankfully we stumbled across The Tuscan Wedding and the most amazing wedding planner ever, Daniela.
From the very first response from Daniela, it was clear that our wedding was in safe hands. Daniela and her team provide a first class service, they are the most professional and knowledgeable wedding planners you could ever wish to plan your big day!
Daniela really gets to know you as a couple, understands your vision for your day and works so hard to make your dreams come true.
Even when we faced delays with our paperwork, Daniela never gave up and worked tirelessly to ensure everything was in order for our big day…..and what a day it was! I cannot describe how pleased we were with our wedding in Florence, it was the stuff that only dreams are made of but was made a reality thanks to The Tuscan Wedding!
We both wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for bringing our ideas to life! Yesterday was magical, more than we could have ever hoped for and we could never have achieved that without you. We are honestly so grateful to you, it was the perfect day from start to finish.
