You Will Find They Are Indispensable… Especially if you hire
Franchi and Sechi…
If you dream of getting married in Italy
and live far away chances are you don’t have the time
or resources to find a caterer, the perfect location, bomboniere (wedding
favors), floral arrangements, and invitations, or work out
the myriad details surrounding a wedding. You need not worry
as Claudia Sechi and Samanta Franchi, experienced wedding planners
and owners of l’Evento, an event-planning company
in Lucca, Tuscany, can do it all for you.
In Italy, the number of wedding planners
has exploded over the past five years and they’re now an essential component
of the most “chic” weddings. Planners take care
of all details, from the bridal gown to guest transportation,
musical entertainment, hair and make-up and so much more.
Samanta and Claudia can help you choose
from the numerous delightful possibilities Tuscany offers,
and will guide you along each step of the way. They believe
that you shouldn’t
be stressed and completely overwhelmed in the weeks and months
leading up to your idyllic “I do’s!”
Claudia and Samanta are uniquely qualified to help you take
care of even the minutest detail when planning the wedding
of your dreams.
Their philosophy is to take an exclusive locale, and combine
it with tasteful, elegant decorations, all to a stunning effect.
Their talents lie in their ability to successfully interpret
the bride’s desires and personality,
in creative and original ways.
These planners pay particular attention
to the well being of guests—whether in a villa, castle, private residence…and
even when the bride and groom select very natural, rustic settings
as their ideal location.
Great care is taken with regards to choosing table settings,
linens, decorations, and color themes. And in keeping with
their commitment to honor long-standing Italian wedding customs,
fine, authentic seasonal cuisine is paired with the best local
wines for the traditional wedding feast. The bride and groom
can rest assured that the tasteful, elegant solutions recommended
by these planners will help turn the couple’s ideas into
an original and unforgettable event.
L’Evento is based in a world-famous
location, renowned for its beauty and cultural riches. Claudia
and Samanta have organized numerous weddings in Tuscany.
They know how to take full advantage of the marvelous scenery,
of the many villas, limonaie (traditional
indoor lemon gardens), and historical palaces this region offers.
Many couples have entrusted these knowledgeable ladies with
their wedding planning and include such VIP clients as television
producers, American investment-bankers, members of European
nobility, and noted entrepreneurs.
In addition to weddings, Claudia and Samanta are available
to plan any type of ‘special’ events…whether
for several hundred people or simply you and a friend. They
shared with us the story of a birthday celebration they recently
organized for the wife of an American client… For this
special occasion, they rented a large historic residence in
the Tuscan hills and arranged a candlelight dinner accompanied
by a string quartet. Dinner was followed by a ballet in the
music room performed by a world-famous ballerina. (The wife
is a huge fan of ballet so her husband wanted an unforgettable
evening for his bride.) The owners of l’Evento meticulously
plan each part of any event, whether simple or elaborate.
Soon they will be organizing the wedding
of a well-known Tuscan businessman at his hunting lodge and
there will be many surprises…
They promised to provide us with details after this event.
