My husband and I just got back from our wedding at Villa Passalacqua in Moltrasio, and truly had the most amazing experience of our lives. It wouldn't have turned out as perfectly as it did if I hadn't found Sally at Wedding Box. If I could hire her to plan my entire life, I would...she is the most patient, positive, talented, creative, hands-on, understanding wedding coordinator and I am so grateful that I found her!
I went to Sally last year thinking I would plan my wedding myself from New York - but had run into some snags and just needed some help finding a couple of vendors like a DJ and florist (which can be tough on the lake - a lot of vendors don't have websites, there's a language barrier, the companies take weeks to respond to emails, etc). Sally was on it immediately - I was taken aback by her quick response time and the way she laid everything out for me so all I had to do was choose what I wanted. She made things that had taken me weeks of unfruitful work so incredibly easy that I kept asking her for more and more help...and my fiance was so impressed that my wedding planning stress had disappeared that he convinced me to hire her to plan the whole thing. It was the best decision I could have possibly made...not only did she make my day absolutely perfect, but she patiently took on my entire wedding weekend as well (from details like a specific single flower tied to the chairs for the ceremony to big things like renting a giant bus for our guests to take from the hotel to a dock in a different town, and coordinating 50 people to get onto 7 self-drive boats there). We have probably had 1,000-plus emails over the year of my wedding planning...I'd email her in the middle of the night panicked about some little detail, I'd write long emails just purging every little thing I wanted to go over (or re-go over), and she was always right there, calmly, patiently, and quickly responding to each and every one and handling every little thing I came up with. If you're looking for a personal approach to your wedding and a booker or planner who will jump at the chance to help you find something out-of-the-ordinary (I wanted a 'just married' sign in Italian for the back of a Vespa for pictures, wish lanterns to be released after dancing, etc) - this is your person. I truly could write a book on how much she did for my wedding weekend.
I honestly don't know what I'm going to do without her now that my wedding is over!
As a bride who understands how overwhelming it is to start the planning process on Lake Como, I can say that Sally is hands-down the best choice you can make, especially if you don't live in the area. You won't regret it!
