What happens when a wedding planner gets married?

When I asked Jessica how Andrea proposed, I was surprised at her answer. “There wasn’t a formal proposal actually, the idea of getting married was already brewing. We spontaneously decided to get married, especially after visiting Valle di Badia” – she said. This was not the only location they visited but for Jessica, who is a wedding planner that knows a lot about weddings, it was love at first sight.

Both of them lived in La Spezia and were looking for a unique and magical location “that was not in their neck of the woods…perhaps with a small church” and that was not too far away to reach for them and their guests.


Jessica and Andrea met each other thanks to mutual friends and “one thing leads to another”…a “thing” that convinced them to get married last July, in the magical place they found out in Tuscany. They wanted a romantic-royal wedding, “because I absolutely love small details” said Jessica.

“I wanted to look after every single detail and customise everything,” she continued, and this is what she did for her wedding too, something she does in her everyday job too.

When the Big Day came, she left the wedding planner role and became a bride, as it should be. When everything is organised in the best way possible you can finally enjoy what you have been dreaming of with love and dedication: a fairy-tale wedding.


The arrival of the bride was among the most touching moments, accompanied by Elena’s violin – the music was “Your Song” by Elton John. Jessica chose a marvellous dress made of silk chiffon and creamy lace embroidered by hand with a 5-metre train.

The entire service was accompanied by sweet songs, like the enchanting Ave Maria and the traditional Halleluja. The music played by Elena softened the words of the priest and increased the excitement of the spouses’ vows.

At the end of the service, they played “Una lunga storia d’amore” by Gino Paoli: a romantic wish to the happy couple.

Slowly, at night, all candles lit… At the entrance of the large Granary Hall, the spouses’ initials sparkled in golden colours. “It was just like a fairy tale”, with beautiful flowers (powder pink roses and white hydrangeas), chandeliers and silver shades everywhere. Outside the hall, hung on the stunning pergola, transparent bubbles with candles seemed to be floating in the air.

Best wishes!
