Lia and John, civil wedding in Venice
Venice, October 1st 2007.
John and I arrived home last night from what could only be described as the most perfect and unforgettable wedding day. The day not only was sunny and bright (not sure how you managed that from the earlier week of thunder, lightening and rain), but perfection in every way from the arrival of the hair stylist, the flowers (the bouquet and boutonniere were amazing), the photographer and videographer (both very punctual) and of course, our indispensable wedding assistant, Sandra.
I cannot say enough about the professional and comforting services provided by Sandra, Mr. Marco and Mr. Andrea on the day of the ceremony. I was nervous, to say the least, but they made the day run smoothly and John and I actually had fun throughout the experience.
The ceremony itself was truly memorable and the violinist played beautifully. The gondola ride, the photos in St. Mark's Square and finally, afternoon tea at Cafe Florian topped off the day and ended it with such sweet memories that both John and I will not soon forget.
I want to thank you for all your assistance over the last few months. I'm not sure most people would plan and execute a wedding overseas in just three months, but your guidance, reassurance, detailed emails and correspondence, and staff made it almost simple.
Your organization and services are truly top rate. My appreciation and sincerest thank you go out to you and your staff.
Once again, thank you for everything. I am attaching a photograph for you.
