THANK YOU from the bottom go our hearts.
Even one year later, our wedding and how flawlessly executed & special it was, is discussed whenever I see each and every of our 70+ guests that attended.
Elena, you were spot on from day 1. I called you from of a google search here in the US; I flew to Florence and you met me within 48 hours -- you showed me the most gorgeous venues and you understood me and our needs/desires very very quickly. You gave me your honest opinion on the best caterer in town (say thank-you to Galateo for me) and which locations you thought to be most appropriate. You were thorough and introduced me to ONLY the best. I know that sometimes I was very decisive, and in some moments I was not, which did not make your job the easiest, but you stuck with me. I should not fail to mention that the party you threw for us the night prior to the wedding at Sesto on Arno was a mini wedding in itself and I only wished I hired a professional photographer to capture that too! It was a special night in a speculator space! That View!!!! MAGIC!
In hindsight, me (and anyone you plan a wedding for in the future) should just take your initial recommendations and know that it will ALL be perfect in the end. I learned that you, and the rest of your Italian professionals take extreme pride in what you do, and will not complete something/ recommend something unless it is as close to PERFECT as you can get.
On that note. Your partnering with Alessandro from Jardin Divers to help create the magic that was this wedding was the absolute right choice. What a setting and mood you both created! Everything crafted that day was picture perfect! Thank you both for creating a style that was not only authentic and timeless, but had a bit of "our story" attached to it. Especially, "the ladybugs".

Speaking of picture perfect; your recommended photographer -Alessandro Righi -- WOW! He captured EVERYTHING that Elena worked to perfect with Jardin Divers, JD Events, Galateo, and Villa le Fontanelle.
My guests have been sending me messages for the last couple of days saying "we want to go back!" "please renew your vows soon!". So maybe in a few years, we might just have to throw a party in Florence with you!
