The telephone rang, on the other end of the line a gentle voice spoke Italian with a sweet French accent. “I’m Virginie, I’m in Florence with my fiancé for a couple of days, and I wondered if we can meet. We would like your help to plan our wedding in Florence villa”. They came to Tuscany for a few days, it wasn’t only a holiday, it was a journey in the hope to discover the perfect place for their special day. And they did it! This 15th century villa is nestled in the heart of the wine region of Chianti but at the same time located at a very few kilometres from Florence.
With Virginie & Julien, we organized a three-day event. At arrival, we welcomed their guests with a “White party” on the villa’s terrace, from which you can see the dome of Florence. A jazz band entertained everybody while prosecco, finger food and pasta salads were served in a rich buffet. The day after the wedding a pool party was the perfect solution to relax and cool off from the Italian summer heat.
The wedding itself was simply a fairytale. From start to finish, Virginie and Julien wanted an incredible variety of gifts, corners, and activities to amaze and amuse their guests. The symbolic ceremony was set on a big lawn between the villa and the olive ground, with the altar centrally located with a path bordered by cypresses. The courtyard hosted the dinner in an enchanted atmosphere. Afterwards, the cake cutting took place in the terrace with a spectacular view on fireworks. The perfect place for the party was the cellar, in front of which we organized a minivan photo booth, candy bar, tattoo bar, rum and cigar corner and many lounge areas for people to chill out.
