Trying to find the perfect location is one of the first steps in planning a wedding. CCE was recently offered the task of finding our new clients a desirable destination for their upcoming nuptials, and we took many steps to book the ideal spot. They wanted to pin down a place that was both luxurious and romantic; two essential qualities to make sharing their love for eachother among family and friends special. After a few suggestions and conversations, we thought, where better to find romantic and regal accommodations than Florence, Italy? The views of the Tuscan valley and the old world charm that it offers in unparallel to the other locations they considered. Just one trip is all it took for them to fall in love with this sensational city. Next, was narrowing down the specific venue to celebrate their nuptials. Selecting from 15 villas; some modern Italian, others with rustic roots, they had many options to help discover what they were looking for. The one that stole their hearts is a romantic Neo-Renaissance Villa that has been refined into a 5-star luxury resort. The exquisite structure holds an exclusive panoramic position near Piazzale Michelangelo,not far from Ponte Vecchio; a breathtaking view of the city center. It is surrounded by an Italian garden and a large ancient park that slopes down close to the Arno shores. Villa la Vedetta is an authentic “Urban Resort” with a unique position in Florence.
And, they chose a date in September, prime harvest season for grapes. The best spot in the world for wine country, one that greatly rivals ones in the states. A perfect mix of views, vino and culture, CCE is excited to work with local vendors to bring this dream wedding come true. Trusting in Italian experts, we know that each piece of the puzzle will fit nicely together to bring our couple a memorable experience they will cherish for a lifetime.
