“The best decision of our lives was to book here for our wedding day” was the message a British couple wrote in thanks to Raffaella for the unforgettable wedding event at her family’s Assisi countryside villa.
I’ve known Raffaella for over thirty years, ever since she’d participated in one of our annual August Wisconsin trips for my English-language students. She was an enthusiastic and appassioned young woman then – and still is.
Her ties to America remain: for over twenty- five years, Raffaella and her family have hosted visitors – also from the States – in the family’s summer villa in the hills rolling out from Assisi.
Raffaella spent her childhood summers in this countryside palazzo of her Nonna, descendant of a noble Assisi family.
For four years now, Raffaella has organized weddings as splendid as if directed by a film director; in fact, she is one. (Her first film was a prize-winner and a second is upcoming.)
A thank-you note from one bride cites her director skills in turning out splendid wedding events:
When not working on her film, Raffaella is enthusiastically “directing” weddings: she’s truly “a director of dreams.”
Raffaella put it this way: “Planning a wedding is like directing a film, for we are making a dream come true, bringing a dream alive…..
…..we all collaborate together with great concentration and intensity. The same intensity of emotion of our staff – all the troupe – must be lived, too, by all the wedding guests.“
Professional scenographers hair-dressers and make-up artists as well as artistic florists – who often collaborate on her films – and top chefs assist Raffaella in turning every event into a wedding to remember.
…and Raffaella is delighted to add special touches to personalize an event:
….and entice the guests, making the wedding an event to remember.
Raffaella can even arrange marriage in the stunning 13-th c. Basilica di San Francesco in Assisi.
And wherever the wedding, a delightful afternoon gran finale, could be the arrival of a small scooter truck, an Ape, with homemade artisanal gelato for all the guests.
The script for every wedding Raffaella creates at her family villa is a prize-winner. Just like her films.
Ready for a wedding? Or a special anniversary celebration? A family reunion? A retirement celebration? Just name the event.
I know the perfect place and a top director of ceremonies. I would be glad to connect you with Raffaella.
