From Bride… “My name is Lorna from Dublin Ireland and Stefania was our wedding planner for our wedding June 2016 in Rapallo, Liguria.
Our journey started with Stefania and Ideeventi over a year before our wedding. Our first impressions were that from the moment I contacted Stefania she couldn’t do enough for us, there was no issue with contacting her and her team whenever we needed, most other wedding planners won’t talk about your wedding until it’s within a year but Stefania let us know that we could contact her anytime knowing how exciting it is to plan your wedding!! To say that Stefania exceed expectations doesn’t seem to do it justice, from the moment we chose her as our wedding planner we had no worries at all. Coming from Ireland to have our wedding in Italy we were very lucky to find someone that we could trust and put our minds at ease. From the start it was clear that Stefania and Ideeventi were top class professionals who we could put our trust in.
The organizing of our wedding was carefree and a really lovely experience. We look back on all of the planning with great memories and will be forever grateful that we found Stefania. Stefania and her team listened intently to everything that we wanted and hoped for and they were ahead of the game in finding the perfect location and vendors that suited all our needs. They had everything organised for us without myself of my fiance having to get involved. They truly chose the best people and top quality products for our big day while managing to keep it all within the budget that we outlined. Coming from Ireland there were different religious and civil requirements that we had to fulfill and Stefania and her team were there every step of the way to ensure that we had the correct documents, that they were sent to the correct places and that they were on time.
Before the big day
When we arrived in Italy we were super excited and slightly nervous but from the moment we arrived everything worked like clockwork. All the events and different aspects of the organisation went so smoothly and thanks to Stefania the week before our wedding was incredibly relaxing. The day before the wedding we met with Stefania and the ideeventi team in our location which was Castello Canevaro. We did a full walk through of the wedding and the team made sure that everything that we wanted was ready and prepared. Going back to the hotel that evening we had no worries at all, only excitement and complete trust in Stefania.
The Wedding Day
Greeted with a warm smile on the morning of my wedding, Stefania was there making sure all was going to plan, which it did because they were well prepared!! One of the best moments was when Stefania handed me my wedding flowers, they were even more beautiful then I had expected. Stefania was by my side the whole way to the church door and you could see that I was her main focus, making sure that I was ok and happy. It was a really special touch to know that she was right beside me if I needed her. Throughout the wedding day Stefania and her team were quietly in the background, on hand to help if needed and actually I was so surprised and really happy that at 4am when the party was over Stefania and her team were still working to get all our guests to the buses! This went above and beyond our expectations, it was clear that they were making sure that the entire day went to plan, even the 4am buses! Stefania and her team also organised the day after the wedding event and again they were there to make sure that all went to plan. The guests were so impressed by the wedding planning team’s commitment and excitement for our wedding.
The venue, flowers, seating, food, booklets
To say that Stefania exceed my expectations is an understatement. From the start Stefania listened to everything that I described. One of the best aspects of the planning was the drawings that she sent me, describing my vision of the day. Even though we had chosen the colour scheme, flowers and seating areas together I was still blown away on the day with the way the venue looked. Stefania is a true artist who made the most beautiful artistic wedding venue I have ever seen. The flowers that Stefania chose were the most beautiful in the world and I am truly grateful.
I truly feel so grateful that I found Stefania and Ideeventi to be my wedding planner, I am only sad that it is over as she truly made this a wonderful experience, there was no stress or pressure on me at all during any stage of the planning, Stefania had everything covered and under control. Herself and her team are top professionals and lovely people. I would highly recommend Stefania and Ideeventi to anyone getting married, they will exceed your expectations. Thank you Stefania and all the team in Ideeventi I will be forever grateful for what you have done to give us the most perfect wedding day that we could have imagined.”
