Richard and Jennifer – 2022
We can not recommend Raf highly enough as a wedding planner! He took on our challenging case and made our dream wedding come true – an intimate ceremony in a beautiful and romantic 14th century church on the Amalfi Coast.
We contacted Raf from the US in May, only 4 months before our wedding date, hoping to have a combined Catholic & Civil ceremony in early September (a very popular time for weddings in Italy). On top of our tight timeline, the Catholic part presented special challenges as one of us was non-Catholic.
Raf delivered above and beyond our expectations. The outcome was so special to us and the process was also wonderful; he clearly loves what he does and is a joy to work with. He made what could have been a very stressful process incredibly easy.
Raf clearly communicated the somewhat daunting paperwork requirements upfront and assured us that if we followed his instructions carefully, we could accomplish our goals. He was responsive, supportive and an excellent problem solver throughout the process. When we struggled to get some needed appointments for the paperwork in Italy, he made them for us and attended some on our behalf. His relationships with local authorities were invaluable and definitely facilitated our process. And he does it all – he even acted as translator for our application filings with the Catholic church and local authorities and during our ceremony (the Priest did the service in Italian). He also arranged for a special priest to do our ceremony who was understanding of our mixed-religion situation and delivered a very meaningful ceremony. And his vendors were also very high quality and reasonably priced; working only from a couple of photos of flowers I liked, his florist created a stunning bouquet that I absolutely loved!
On top of it all, he’s really a good guy! From the moment we first reached out to him to our arrival on the Amalfi coast (where he scooped us up at the train station with a big smile and reassuring hug) we knew we were in great hands!
We are forever indebted to you Raf – Grazie Mille!see more testimonials
