June 4, 2024 | justine

Jasmine and Alberto’s Villa di Maiano wedding felt like stepping into a real-life fairytale. The 15th-century venue provided an absolutely stunning setting for their special day. Imagine being surrounded by the beauty of a Tuscan garden, with flowers everywhere and everyone dressed in stylish attire. With the help of Junebug planner Eventi Gaia di Gaia Cinotti leading their vendor team, it was like a dream come true, with every detail perfectly matching their vision of the perfect wedding day.

During their garden ceremony, a path strewn with blooms led them to an altar framed by a lush floral arch, creating a picturesque setting for their heartfelt vows. And the enchantment didn’t fade as the festivities went on. Their reception was adorned with tables featuring stunning centerpieces and elegant gold settings. Completing the scene, sparkling chandeliers hung overhead, adding a touch of magic to the air.

More than anything, what made their day truly special was being surrounded by their loved ones, especially their little girl, who was right there with them. Thankfully, Frank Catucci skillfully captured every magical moment of this happy day.

Creating a Villa di Maiano Wedding That Was a Fairytale Come to Life

Our wedding in Firenze was a day to remember, filled with moments of pure enchantment and love. It was a celebration showcasing the power of love and the magic that can be woven into every wedding detail. This remarkable event left a lasting impression on all who attended, reminding us that true love can be as enchanting as a fairytale. The flowers were specially chosen for us, and the ceremony, along with the table decor, was amazing.


Unforgettable Moments at Their Garden Villa di Maiano Wedding Ceremony

The first unforgettable moment of the day was when our daughter walked down the aisle with her daddy, carrying the rings. The ceremony occurred under the sprawling canopy of oak trees in a tranquil garden. The setup was spectacular, featuring a wave-shaped arrangement of white flowers cascading like a floral waterfall. The garden’s natural beauty, combined with this distinctive floral design, created an elegant and romantic backdrop. The aisle itself was transformed into a breathtaking floral masterpiece, with a large wave made entirely of flowers guiding us toward our happily ever after.

The Importance of Trusting Your Gut and Selecting the Right Team for the Big Day

Make decisions that bring you joy—don’t ask for too many opinions. Trust your instincts. Choose a planner and vendors you trust so you can relax on your big day while they handle everything. It’s crucial to pick a wedding planner whose style aligns closely with yours, someone you connect with well. Above all, prioritize experience, especially in destination weddings.

Enhancing Guest Experience Through Thoughtful Entertainment

Entertainment was another standout of the evening. A fantastic band entertained the guests with various melodies that got everyone in the mood for dancing and celebration. Then, to our surprise, my dad arranged something special for dinner. While enjoying our meal, a waiter approached with a glass of prosecco and began to sing. It turns out he was a tenor from Teatro la Scala di Milano! It was an incredible performance that left everyone in awe.

Bringing Italian Tradition to the End of the Party

At the end of the party, around 2 a.m., we whipped up a delicious spaghetti aglio e olio, a tradition whenever we have friends over for a late-night “spaghettata.” For dinner, we were thrilled to serve a typical Tuscan meal.
