The most magical, organized elopement with Original Tuscan Wedding

Wow, just wow! We eloped in Tuscany in September 2023, and Original Tuscan Wedding went above and beyond to make our wedding such a beautiful, memorable day. We originally decided on OTW because of how quickly Elizabeth replied to our initial inquiries and sent us details on pricing, locations, etc. — this was the best decision, because she was just as organized and responsive throughout the entire planning process. My husband and I frequently joked we had next to no wedding stress because Elizabeth was so efficient in taking care of everything for us. We really liked her elopement “package” options, which included trusted vendors, help searching for a venue, clear add-on options, and more. Everything was so painless, which was especially nice since we were located in Canada and couldn’t physically visit during covid lockdowns. It was also lovely that Elizabeth was our officiant as she got to know us throughout the experience, making the ceremony very intimate.

Our actual wedding day went seamlessly, largely due to Elizabeth coordinating everything while my husband and I focused on getting ready and enjoying the moment. I felt like the flowers, arch, ceremony setup, table, and photographer just magically materialized because I didn’t have to think of any of it! My biggest fear with eloping was that I would feel “alone” in moments you would usually have a bridesmaid or parent (stuff like greeting the photographer, doing up your dress, checking for stuff in your teeth), but Elizabeth filled that role perfectly. She was always available to help and usually already a few steps ahead of us. One good (and funny) example was when I noticed one flower in my bouquet I didn’t love. It wasn’t a big deal, so I just pulled it out and thought no one noticed. But I guess Elizabeth saw I had removed it and headed straight back to remove the same flower from the arch before I walked down the aisle. Her attention to detail was phenomenal.

Overall, we cannot recommend Original Tuscan Wedding and Elizabeth enough! We really felt like she made our wedding vision come to life and truly cared about making it special. We also felt like the pricing was extremely reasonable and transparent. If you’re on the fence about eloping, this is your sign to reach out to OTW now! We couldn’t have pulled off our dream wedding without them.

I am originally from Portland, Oregon then I went to university in California and have been in Italy for over 25 years. I worked as a marketing and events manager in an international firm for many years. I started out in wedding planning by giving a hand to friends and co-workers from abroad so eventually I decided to form a company to help non-Italians get married in Italy. With years of experience of event planning, interpreting, and living in Italy (in all its red-tape!), I decided to venture out into this (at the time) new field. When OTW started over 18 years ago, there were only a few agencies and none had native English speaking planners. My team and I understand what it is like to have different traditions that are wonderful to incorporate in your wedding while embracing the Tuscan feel.
