"Amy & Gino - Lake Garda Wedding"
This testimonial was entered by A Taste Of Beauty - Weddings in Italy on 1 February 2018
Carolina exceeded all our expectations and made our dream a reality for our wedding day on Isola del Garda, Lake Garda, Italy.
From our first meeting she immediately understood the type of day we wanted and quickly gathered a selection of suppliers for each aspect of the day from caterers, florists, musicians and transport for us to choose from. She comprised schedules for payments and what needed to be completed when so we always knew where we were with every aspect throughout the planning.
We travelled out to Lake Garda a few months before the wedding and Carolina organised for us to be shown around Isola de Garda and even arranged a taster event with our caterers to help choose our menu choices.
On the day everything was in hand with high precision and execution (apart from a couple of pick up location errors on our part!). All our guests were absolutely blown away when their boat arrived at the island with plentiful prosecco and canapés by the dock side to meet them. By the time I arrived in my beautiful vintage speedboat all the guests were waiting in the magnificent Loggia for the ceremony.
Our ceremony was exactly what we hoped for, intimate and heartfelt. And was followed by pre dinner drinks and antipasti in the beautiful Italian gardens with breath-taking views across the lake in the evening sun with atmospheric laid back jazz music being played by the band.
When it was time to move back up to the Loggia for dinner, we were blown away with how beautiful the tables were set out. Carolina got our vision to the T! The flowers, the pretty tea lights and scatters petals were perfect, we were so impressed.
When the food was served it was absolutely second to none and plentiful, even offering seconds for everyone after each course. The waiters and waitresses were extremely attentive with serving and keeping the wine glasses topped up. Even our wedding cake was a huge spectacular. All three chefs came out carrying it, the band burst into tune and everyone cheered! We will never forget it!
After dinner we all made our way back towards the dock where a marque was set up with twinkly lights and candles, which looked absolutely beautiful amongst the trees, water and nights sky. Outdoor sofas were dotted around for guests to relax with a drink, while inside the band were blasting out upbeat jazz and had everyone dancing. The caterers had arranged a delicious spread of sweet treats along with espressos, after dinner spirits and of course more prosecco!
We really couldn’t believe our eyes. Each part of the day was astonishing with high attention to detail and exceptional execution. Carolina was there to oversee the whole day and made everything flow seamlessly. We cannot thank her enough for all the hard work she put in to making our dreams come true!
