DIW makes dreams come true

We would give DIW a million stars if we could, my partner and I were marred in a traditional Indian celebration over the course of 3 days in the Tuscan countryside. Our priorities were successfully blending Indian tradition and culture with the beauty of the Italian landscape, making sure our guests were completely taken care of, and making sure our personalities shined through at every opportunity.

When we came into contact with Rosanna it was clear that this team was passionate and very well equipped to create the wedding of our dreams, but once we started actually planning with Jacopo, we were able to really see his expertise come to life.

Jacopo, quite simply, made our DREAMS COME TRUE, every vendor that we were matched with was of the highest quality, every decision we made was done with so much thoughtfulness and care, every last minute hiccup was taken care of without us having to worry about anything going wrong. And truly, our wedding flew by immaculately, and with both of us as the bride and groom being able to thoroughly enjoy every moment almost as if we were guests ourselves.

Another very important point is how well Jacopo and his team took care of our guests. Indian culture emphasizes hospitality and every guest has individually noted how thoughtful the entire experience felt for them. We had a lot of complicated religious and dietary restrictions that the team took the time to understand fully and accommodate for in the most seamless way. Everything we thought would be an added complication and a burden to the planning, was handled with so much respect, and everyone felt very well taken care of.

Jacopo also really got to know us throughout our time planning this wedding together, and as he got to understand what makes us happy his suggestions and ideas pulled the whole wedding together and we could really trust that he would always do what was in our best interest. It was incredibly liberating to know that your planning team is not just a team that is executing on a plan, but they鈥檙e a team that can intuit your feelings to make the wedding perfect for you!

Absolutely choose DIW for your wedding experience, it is the decision that set our wedding on the path for success and a memory that we and our guests will never ever forget!

Professional, knowledgeable, responsive

We absolutely loved working with Rosanna and her team. They offered a free consultation to understand our needs first, worked with our venues of choice to obtain more information and find the right solution for us. Rosanna and team were responsive, extremely knowledgeable, and helped us estimate total budgets for various wedding venues to help us make the right choice. I would definitely recommend Distinctive Italy Weddings for large and logistically complex events, as they are extremely professional and have the ability to guide and advise, and anticipate any issues that may come up and help resolve those proactively. A huge thanks to the team for supporting us! Anastasia
