Jaclyn and Mark

Hi Erica and Elena, We just wanted to take the time to say a huge thank you to both of you for all of your hard work and efforts to plan the most wonderful wedding day for Mark and I.  It really was just like a fairytale and we loved every single minute of it.  I could not have imagined a more perfect day - everyone has said that it was one of, if not the best, weddings they have ever been to and we will cherish the memories of the idyllic setting, the amazing flowers and tables, decorations, food, entertainment (the folk trio were incredible!!) and of course the amazing staff - you two, Erica's lovely husband, Marco and every member of the catering and the Villa staff were so friendly and really made the whole experience what it was!  Mark and I really cannot thank you enough for taking [...]

Kate and Paul 2015

Hi Erica, Thank you again for helping us to achieve such an amazing, special wedding day - it really was perfect and we have been overwhelmed by the response from our guests who all said that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. They were bowled over by the stunning venue, music, food and wine. They loved the ceremony and commented on how good the pastor was. They also loved the trio, who were great fun! Paul and I really appreciated all your help and support - especially during those few days before the wedding and of course on the day itself. You made everything run so smoothly. The flowers and decorations were beautiful and the granary looked fabulous for the party in the evening.

Good evening Erica, We just wanted to send our thanks to you and Elena for our special day last week. The day was amazing and we both felt you two organised and orchestrated the whole thing so well - no stress was put on us at all on the day. Even the weather held out OK for when we needed it. The whole experience has been fantastic and a complete pleasure- we would definitely recommend you to anyone looking in the same region.

Janice and Ben 2015

Hi Erica, We have just returned home after the most magical two weeks!  From the incredible church wedding in Abbadia Isola to the incredible 4 days at the villa (throw in a dream wedding) and our amazing honeymoon to the South Coast, I have to pinch myself to believe it all happened. Ben and I realize that none of this could have happened without you.  We loved working with you and it was so wonderful to finally meet you after months of emails and Skype calls. We got in the car after meeting you at Bar Dell'Orso and we both remarked on how warm and personable you were and we just knew we were going to have the perfect wedding!  We trusted you from very early on and we were so right in doing so as our wedding was more than what we could have imagined.  All of the details were taken care o[...]

Faye and Woody 2016

Hi Erica, The wedding was amazing and all thanks to you and your team. Thank you so very much for making our wedding the best day ever. Can you please pass on our thanks to the caterers, the food was gorgeous, lovely staff and fabulous set/up for both the wedding day and the BBQ night. We loved it! And, thanks to Dovile and Matteo, they were great! Even Woody was impressed, although he still didn't like his photo being taken. I will email Teresa at Il Castagno to say thank you. It was a great venue, I think we both fell in love with the place and definitely hope to return. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
