Elyssa and Imen

“When setting out to plan our wedding, we knew that the three most important things to us were: delicious food, lots of laughing, and a beautiful backdrop for photos. With the help and direction of our planner Alessia, we got all of it plus some!”

This lovely, laid-back American couple was a pleasure to work with. Elyssa and Imen knew they wanted to get married in Tuscany — the first place they ever travelled to together. “We decided to have a relatively small destination wedding,” Elyssa told Wedding Wire, “and after hearing about what we were looking for, [Alessia] sent us information about Locanda in Tuscany — knowing that it was exactly what we had been searching for but couldn’t find.”


It was an Italian wedding weekend immersed in local culture, wine tastings, tours and much more for the 60 guests that gathered to celebrate. “Alessia shared some remarkable venues with us, but none compared to the Locanda in Tuscany,” Elyssa told Chic and Stylish Weddings. “When we drove there for the first time, two days before our wedding, my heart skipped a beat.”


After cutting the cake of chantilly cream and berries, it was time to take the party to the dance floor. “The wedding “was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined,” Elyssa said. “We had 58 guests traveling from 5 different continents, and each person shared that it was one of the most beautiful places they had ever been to or seen.

“We couldn’t be more thankful to all of our vendors for making our day truly the best day ever. Our friends and family continue to talk about how wonderful it was and our answer is always ‘Alessia!’”
