Kind words from our couples…


Ajoia + Dabren

Living in the U.S. - it was very important for us to find a professional team in Italy that knew how to make our wedding in Milan remarkable. After researching the top professionals in Italy, Sandra stood out as the best based on reviews. We contacted her initially for a venue search and quickly realized we were in good hands and promptly requested her services for the entire wedding experience. During the venue search she helped us identify various locations that would suit our desires and budget. Thanks to her extensive network and services, we seamlessly visited and toured venues throughout Como/Milan making it easy to decide our wedding location.

After deciding on a venue, we shared wedding ideas and thoughts via Skype and through Pinterest. We took pictures of flowers, types of decorations and wedding themes. During a second visit to Milan, she also set up a private tasting with one of the best caterers in town.

The small details were not ignored! She even made sure to have a steaming service once we arrived at the Villa for any last-minute fashion needs. Everything that we requested was delivered at our wedding and looked better than we could have imagined. Our flowers and table arrangements looked incredible. The decorations throughout the villa were breathtaking. The catering, cake and service was first class! Our guests were blown away and still can't believe how stunning and extraordinary our wedding experience was.

We had the time of our lives and everything was better than we could have ever imagined. We will never forget our wedding day and always remember how beautiful the experience was in Milan.

Having traveled the world and experienced all forms of service, I can say without a doubt that Sandra is hands down the top recommendation for wedding services in Italy. If you live in the U.S. and are getting married in Italy, save yourself some time and contact Sandra.

There's no need to go anywhere else. You are getting the best Italy has to offer. This is not a paid response, I'm getting nothing - I'm giving you everything by writing this review!  

Men, make your future wives happy and contact Sandra!

Dear Sandra,

We just got back last night from our 2 week trip to Tuscany. We had such a lovely time. We really, really enjoyed our ever so small and low key wedding at that amazing location. I thought it would be inside (I think you had sent a picture at some stage)... and thought it was amazing that it was outside with the view over the valley and the beautiful olive trees.

Thank you so much for organising and allowing it all to be so smooth. We felt in very good hands throughout and are very grateful that we ended up with you as our wedding planner. Please do not forget to send us the link so we can write you a great review. We are now waiting to hear what happens next and whether there is anything we need to do here in the UK. Presumably you will send us the final marriage certificate? Looking forward to hearing from you.

All the very best to you and your team from the UK.

Hello Sandra,

Thank you so much for coordinating such a nice wedding day for us.  Everything went seamlessly and was perfect. I wanted to reach out regarding next steps in the paperwork process.  Will you be sending paperwork to us in the US?

Thank you again for such a nice day.

Hi Sandra!

Michael and I are back home and wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for arranging such a beautiful ceremony for us!

Ease and assurance is what you will find when you decide to go with gettingmarriedinitaly®.

Sandra was there for us from the beginning, making sure we were set for our special day. We truly could not have tackled this adventure without her and her team. From the paper work to photographer she was able to ensure we were getting the best service possible and that all the “i’s” were dotted and “t’s” were crossed to guarantee us that we were actually getting married legally back in the US.

Our trip to Florence was amazing, our wedding was beautiful and intimate and our memories will never fade because of the service and quality she delivers. Thank you Sandra for making our destination wedding less stressful and much more beautiful than anything we could have wished for here in the States.

Dear Sandra & team,

Ande and I wanted to say a big thank you to all of you, but especially Sandra, for coordinating a truly incredible wedding for us, which we and our guests will remember for a lifetime.

We could not have done it without your assistance, and patience, and can never truly express our gratitude for all the tasks you completed in the background to ensure everything all went smoothly.

We had the most perfect day and would do it all again in an instant. If any of our friends decide to get married in Italy (which I wish they would), we will not hesitate to recommend you.

Thank you!

Hello Sandra,

We just wanted to say thank you again for creating such a beautiful and magical fairytale wedding for us in Firenze. Ms Floriana, Federico and the rest of your wedding team was so professional, efficient and met every one of our inquiries and overall exceeded our wedding expectations.

You all were so kind, patient and accommodating and gave the perfect recommendations for flowers, music and beauty experts. You made the legal paperwork so stress free for non-Italians like us that we truly felt like we were getting married at home. The ceremony in the Sala Rossa room left us all speechless with its beauty and history. Grazie mille from the bottom of our hearts. We speak highly of your services to all the people that we meet and 100% recommend everyone who would like to marry in Italy.

Thank you so much! We love our pictures and so happy we worked with all of you!

Warmest Regards,

Hello Sandra,

We just made it back to the US yesterday afternoon but I couldn't wait to get back so I could thank you again for the wonderful job you did on planning my elopement ceremony. Everything was perfect! The instructions you gave were absolutely clear and everything came together so perfectly. We are still talking about how beautiful the ceremony was and how kind everyone was to us. We truly fell in love with Italy even more so than we were before and that's because of you and the people of Pisa. I can't thank you enough for making this the absolute best wedding day ever for my husband and I.

It was like a fairy tale come true.

Hello Sandra,

We are back home and settling in. We hope everything is going well with you. Dave and I wanted to thank you for the beautiful job you did on our wedding. We all enjoyed your company and the fact you were able to share our day with us after all the work you did.

Everything was planned so perfect and went off with out any problems. We couldn't of asked for anything more. The harpist did such a lovely job through out the ceremony and we absolutely love the Minister you chose to do our vows. Even though he did not know us before, he made our wedding feel so personalized and special. We were all so impressed at the wonderful job your team of photographers and your videographer did through out the day. They were amazing and we are looking forward to getting the pictures and video when they are ready. The flowers were beautiful and exactly what I asked for and you know how I worried over the perfect colors.

Thank you again for making my dream of getting married in Italy come true..

Beth + Doug


We want to thank you for helping us make our wedding such a special and memorable event.

The Reverend performed a wonderful ceremony that had the local Italians and our American family and friends crying tears of joy while bringing back to life the once inhabited village of Malberga. The locals that came back to the mountain told us that we were either the first ever or the first at least since 1692 when the chapel was built. We picked that site for our wedding a few years ago as we knew it would be special from the moment Lynn walked us into that special place.

We appreciate the efforts of all and even the little nuances that we went through to make it a possibility.

Everything was perfect on Sept. 13, 2013.

Thank you again!!

Hi Sandra,

Well, we are finally back from our honeymoon and back to "reality"! 🙂 I can't thank you enough for the most incredible day beyond our wildest dreams; our wedding was absolutely perfect. You really captured the romantic and elegant feel that we were going for. Like I told you when we first walked up to the dinner table, it made me start to cry a bit because it was all just so breathtaking.

We also LOVED the pastor (everyone raved about him and our special ceremony he conducted), the DJ and music were so much fun, the photographers were too funny, the food was delicious, and everyone at the villa were absolutely amazing with us. We honestly could not have asked for more out of the whole experience, and we have you to thank for it. I appreciate everything you did to make this all happen because it is more than I could have expected. 🙂

Sandra, I am stunned: the trailer is beautiful, romantic, simply amazing! I have cried nearly every time I have watched it (and yes, I have watched the video MANY times today! haha). We sent it to our parents, and we're all in agreement that it just so beautifully captures that magical day; wonderful work.

Again, thank you for EVERYTHING. 🙂 I wish that day would have lasted forever...
