We had a wonderful day for our small intimate wedding ceremony at Casa Angelina.
Mr Raf was recommended by the hotel, and he made the whole planning process seamless – especially from a different country.
He was fast to respond and recommended excellent suppliers.
Mr Raf was fantastic on the day too – it was a pleasure to have him perform our ceremony.
He put everyone at ease with his friendly and energetic persona and made the ceremony a very memorable occasion!
Thank you Mr Raf!

We eloped to Amalfi and we’re lucky enough to have Raf plan everything for us.
He made the process so easy from helping us with vendors to picking a place for dinner.
Raf made us feel comfortable and the entire process was easy.
No matter what questions we asked or changes we wanted to make, he was there to help.
Would 100% recommend Raf, he really made our day so special.

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!

In short, Mr. Raf was absolutely perfect in every way. From the moment we contacted him to plan our wedding, he was professional, attentive, and incredibly helpful. He took the time to get to know us and understand our vision for our special day, and he worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail was taken care of.
Mr. Raf’s knowledge of the local area and wedding industry was exceptional. He was able to recommend the best vendors for our needs, from florist to caterers and musicians. He also provided us with a range of beautiful venues to choose from, and worked with us to find the perfect location for our ceremony and reception.
Throughout the planning process, Mr. Raf was always available to answer our questions and offer advice. He was patient, kind, and understanding, and he made us feel like we were his top priority at all times.
On the day of the wedding, Mr. Raf was simply amazing. He coordinated every aspect of the event with precision and care, ensuring that everything ran smoothly and seamlessly. He was calm, confident, and in control, which allowed us to relax and enjoy every moment of our special day.
Overall, we cannot recommend Mr. Raf highly enough. He is an exceptional wedding planner who truly goes above and beyond to create the perfect wedding experience for his clients. If you’re planning a wedding in Ravello or anywhere else in Italy, we would highly recommend working with Mr. Raf. He is the best of the best!

My husband Bill and I want to thank you for officiating our wedding ceremony. We wanted to talk with you and let you know in person but seems you left quickly before we had a chance to convey our thanks. Just want you to know that we enjoyed it very much and so did our wedding guests. They talked about the way you officiated with positive energy and a little humor too. Our quests quoted some of your words and said you were fabulous. We were very happy and only wish we could have told you in person and also invited you to toast and enjoy the aperitif with us.
I am happy to recommend you for your professional and personalized wedding services and your efficiency and organization. It was impressive that you copied the poem for my daughter to read on short notice too. Bravo, Mr Raf!

My wife and I are so happy that we decided to trust in Raf to make our wedding day amazing! At first I felt comfortable planning our destination wedding on my own, but I quickly realized how many moving parts there are to make sure that everything goes smoothly; even for our small wedding of 14 people. I was referred to Raf by one of the churches that I reached out to via email in the early stages of our planning process. From the very beginning of working with Raf he was communicative, thoughtful, diligent, honest, and made us feel as though we were the only wedding he was helping plan! Every single detail of our wedding was perfect, beautiful, and exactly what we had pictured in our heads when we imagined our Italian wedding. The moments that Raf helped to create will forever be in our memories, and we will forever be grateful for Raf’s attention to detail and treating us like his own family. If you decide to partner with Raf in planning for your wedding, you will find yourselves reminiscing your perfect day and writing a similar testimonial to this about a year from now! Side note, all of Raf’s travel advice while we were exploring on where to park, what to see, and where to eat was much appreciated as well!
Words cannot express our gratitude Raf, you are amazing! Keep doing what you do; helping amplify love and happiness in the world!

Raf made our Ravello wedding fantastic.
He was incredibly attentive to every last detail in the preparations, and a joy to interact with.
On the day of the wedding, he seemed to be in five places at once, ensuring that everything was perfectly in order.
He was also a wonderful tour guide — our Amalfi Coast tour was peppered with unique perspectives and humorous anecdotes that only he could give.
We would wholeheartedly recommend him for any couple seeking an unforgettable Amalfi Coast wedding. We wish we could get married there again, just to work with him more!
