We cannot thank you enough for all you did to make our joyous occasion a memorable one for years to come!
Ron and I want you to know every aspect of our wedding exceeded our expectations! From the beginning you and your associates provided professional service and made our wedding so special. We did not feel stressed or worried about anything. Your suggestions were perfect for us - from the wedding venue to the flowers - you listened to our wishes. We recommend your services to anyone wishing to plan a wedding in Italy. You were a delight to work with and you certainly put your heart and soul into our little wedding.

From the first time we spoke with Bea in October 2014, she was full of life and enthusiasm for weddings, Tuscany, and getting to know us!
From the first time we spoke with Bea in October 2014, she was full of life and enthusiasm for weddings, Tuscany, and getting to know us! Unlike a few other Italian based wedding planners, Bea was open to our ideas and what we wanted – versus giving us what “typically is done for Italian weddings”. She cared enough to ask the questions and savvy in her recommendations and guiding us through the process of creating our wedding plan! Our first meeting with Bea was when we (unexpectedly), decided to travel to Italy in November 2014 to go on tours of villa options. With very short notice Bea changed plans to help us every step of the way during that visit – even spending the entire day driving us through the Tuscan countryside to visit villas. We know she had to call in some favors to make sure we were able to see all the villas we were interested in and we have such amazing memories of that visit and trip – so many laughs! Throughout the year of planning, Bea stayed in touch and assisted with the search and negotiation process for selecting our other wedding “partners” – our outstanding and “above and beyond” caterers – Cooking Around Chianti – to the personal and visionary photographer: Marco Vegni – everyone was absolutely a part of making our wedding and the surrounding days spectacular!

Her fancy ideas enriched our wedding and made our ceremony an unforgettable event.
Since both my wife and I live in Zurich and Tuscany was chosen as the Wedding location, a local wedding planner was a must. After a rather bad first experience with a bigger wedding planner company, we decided to have a look at some smaller ones, to make it more personal. Bea proved to be the best choice from the beginning. Her kind, professional way supported us through the complete preparations of the wedding and through the ceremony. Also during difficult times she always found a solution, her reliability was very important for us since we were living abroad. Her fancy ideas enriched our wedding and made our ceremony an unforgettable event. I would recommend her and her team to anyone planning a wedding in Tuscany!

She was very professional and at the same time it was like having one more friend at the celebration.
We did not have a clear vision of what we wanted and what does a wedding event organisation consist of. We had a vague vision of what we would like. We needed someone who would change this vision into a concrete idea, propose us the solution, make a plan and realise this plan. We wanted someone who would give us "yes"/"no" choices rather than ask us a million questions and make us analyse and think. Also, we don't live in Italy and we needed someone who'd organise our wedding there without us being there. Bea (Al fresco Wedding) was perfect. She immediately captured the essence of what we wanted (it was like reading our minds), and suggested a perfect solution. She was asking questions where needed (e.g. what kind of music we would like), and whatever we came up with - it was all possible with her. She found us a photographer, celebrant, violinist, flowers, cake, hotel - we did not have to put any effort into these aspects of organisation. She was attentive, flexible, creative and very friendly. We only talked to her twice before the event (once - in Skype, and once – at the venue during the menu tasting). The rest of discussions was by mail. She responded to our emails almost immediately (sometimes - within 3-5 minutes!) so a distance did not cause a problem. It was a pure pleasure to work with her and we trusted her completely. She proposed a lot of excellent solutions and convinced us (without being pushy) whenever our choices were not best. She did not bother us with small details that we did not even have an opinion about but she took care of it all by herself, and this is exactly the level of service that we wanted. Everything looked beautiful, elegant and stylish without us even making a single suggestion! During the ceremony, she managed everything and yet she was almost invisible. No idea how she did it. She was very professional and at the same time it was like having one more friend at the celebration. We strongly recommend her services.

I really don’t think that I would have had such a special experience without Al fresco Wedding’s help!
We live in the USA and do not speak Italian so we really had no idea where to start. We contacted several planners who were responsive but after our first Skype session with Beatrice, we felt an instant connection! Beatrice asked the right questions about our vision and took the time to understand our needs. She never made us feel pressured but instead made us feel reassured that she would be with us every step of the way. Something inside of me told me I could trust her and really that created the foundation of our relationship. After the initial conversation, Beatrice started by suggesting several venues and took into account our feedback and thoughts. She helped us narrow down the venues to several candidates that we felt would fit our budget and criteria. A few months later, we arranged to visit the venues in person and finally met Beatrice. Wow, she was the most warm and caring person. You can tell she put her heart and soul into her job. She provided us with an agenda and took the time to discuss the pros and cons of each place. After that meeting, my fiancé and I were reassured that working with Beatrice was the best choice we made. In addition, what first started out as wedding planning for a day turned into a wedding week and Beatrice didn't get discouraged, she helped with each day even when it wasn't part of the initial request. She helped arrange vendors for big things such as venue, catering, flowers, etc to small things such as wedding favors and shuttles to and from the venue. She really went above and beyond any requests. I really could go on and on about how great the Al fresco team was. My guests literally have said that my wedding is the BEST WEDDING they have ever been to and there are plenty of pictures to prove it. Everything went without a hitch and I am still living on the high of the entire week. I really don’t think that I would have had such a special experience without Al fresco Wedding’s help!

Thank you so much for the top notch and last but no least, good value for money service.
The Al Fresco Team has been a professional support from the beginning until the end of the event, our Big Day, taking place in Italy in Tuscany. We always felt we were in safe hands to handle any sort of situation or request. This is vital to keep calm and stay relaxed before and during the organisation of a wedding, especially when planning long distance. Thank you so much for the top notch and last but no least, good value for money service.
