Cynthia and Steven, civil wedding in Volterra
Volterra, May 17th 2012.
I just wanted to let you know that Sara Portello has been fantastic. She has been helpful, easy to reach, and responsive to our questions. I know we've been a little challenging because we're doing such a small elopement and that it's not a lot of fun for a planner. We've also been indecisive about what we want, but she has really been fantastic!
I also think it is a very good sign that we saw an email from you on the desk of the woman we met with for our atto notorio at the Italian Consulate in New York City. That's always a good sign that you've chosen the right organization to handle your wedding! Hope you're well and thanks for all your help and for handing us off to such a capable and pleasant planner.
Cynthia M. Mitchell, Esq.
Hello. Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. We had a cancelled flight disaster on the way home and then I came home with a nasty airplane cold, so I've been sleeping for a few days. First, thank you for all your hard work and for your well wishes. We were extremely happy with all your services. Secondly, please feel free to use any of our positive praise as references or as testimonials on your website--we would be honored.
Finally, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful group of people you assembled to help us on our wedding. Jo, as I have already told you, was fantastic--funny and sweet and very professional. The videographer was also great--patient and friendly. Steve really liked him.
But, I must say, Guliana was a downright GEM. She helped beyond her obligations--she was extremely professional and seemed to take her duties very seriously while helping to also find us the perfect place for a post-wedding toast. When the place we had picked fell through, she took it upon herself to make new arrangements! She also helped us find an even nicer restaurant for dinner. As she is friends with the restaurant owners, she arranged for photo opportunities and for them to open early for us. They even made us a wonderful little cake!
Also, Lisa far exceeded our expectations. I honestly don't know why anyone would choose anyone other than her to do their wedding photos. She is professional, creative, helpful, and positive and her photos are unique and charming. She was more than I ever could have hoped for and I can't wait to see the pictures and send you some! Please let her know how truly, truly happy we were with her. Sara, thank you gain for everything. It was an absolutely pleasure working with you and we wish you all the best!
Thia--the new Mrs. Rickman!
