Jane & Dan
A magical affair with Florentine flair
The vision for this wedding was to deliver a seamless and outstanding guest experience. As many guests were visiting Florence (and even Italy) for the first time, welcome kits included local treats and a custom-printed guide to the city, replete with favorite spots to eat, things to do, and hidden gems, as well as tips for common connection cities Rome and Milan.
The focus for the wedding was on bringing the families and friends together, doing away with many traditions and embracing others, for a magical, fairytale experience.
With an emphasis on outstanding food and on hand-made, bespoke design elements, this wedding was one of a kind, and full of thoughtful touches and beautiful details.
The wedding week included five events:
A welcome pizza party Monday night to give villa guests stunning sunset views, a chance to mingle, and delicious pizzas (served hot from a vintage truck-turned-pizza oven).
Guided walking tours of the heart of Florence Tuesday morning, which gave guests a chance to connect in small groups of 10-12.
Dinner for all guests Tuesday evening at a charming local restaurant in the artsy San Niccolò neighborhood, on an intimate private terrace.
Ceremony and Reception on Wednesday. Included an aperitivo to linger over with custom-made lawn games, a multi-course feast, surprise dance performance and live cake assembly, pyrotechnics, and more. An evening to remember.
A full brunch Thursday morning, complete with an artisanal gelato cart.
