From the couple:
Dear Martina and the Italyweddings Team,
After being together for 9 years, and living abroad for 6 of those, getting married was something we did for our families more than for us. We had a choice between a 300 person wedding at home in the US, or 60 of our favorites in Italy. It wasn’t really a difficult decision.
For our wedding, we wanted a week full of family, friends, delicious food, fine drink, and unlimited excuses to live la dolce vita. Our wedding week consisted of a Welcome Dinner, trip to the Palio di Siena for the wedding party, Pizza Party by the pool, Masquerade Rehearsal Dinner, Wedding, and a Recovery Lunch. Having a week to spend time with family and friends took all the stress away from the Wedding Day, and instead was the perfect culmination to the most amazing week of our lives shared with the people we love the most.
Everything about our time in Italy was all we could have dreamed of. It would not have been possible without Martina and the Italyweddings team. From the very first email we knew we were in good hands. We wanted to change the traditional way people get married by walking ourselves down the aisle, having a wine ceremony with our brothers as officiants, as well as numerous other small changes to the usual paradigm. Martina embraced all of our ideas with enthusiasm and we tested all of her planning potential with 5 catered events over 6 days. She executed it all perfectly, helping us plan out a week of the best of Italy for our guests. When it came down to the wedding day, we had complete faith in the artistic vision of Ben, Marisa, and Martina and trusted them entirely. They pulled off a wedding that no one in attendance will ever forget. It was its own Italian fairy-tale. My final thanks has to go to Martina, who was one of my closest friends as we planned our Italian wedding, and to her personally I am eternally grateful.
Thank you so very much,
Malory & AJ
