  2. Dear Daniela

    Once upon a time there was a Swiss Italian couple living in Switzerland who just wanted a little fairy-tale wedding in Rome...  Fortunately, they have found a fairy godmother called Daniela De Luca who satisfied every wish they had and made that their dreams came true...

    Jessica and me wanted to thank you again from deep of our hearts for everything you've done that we had our dream wedding. You were very understanding from the beginning until the day of the wedding and still today...;) It didn't matter if we came up with any changes of plans or additional wishes, you managed it to our best. Since the very first e-mail contact you were always professional and at the same time cordially and close. Especially for Jessica it was always like a very good friend of her is planning our wedding. So she wasn't afraid to write you all her ideas and images via whatsapp and you always wrote back straightaway.  Some times it was stressful to make all the decisions but with your support and routine everything worked out perfectly. Every single guest enjoyed it and said that this wedding was the best wedding (excluded their own wedding of course) they ever were.

    Thank you very much, grazie di cuore, "herzlichä Dank" (Swiss German;))!!! Thanks to you we had a perfect wedding day and we will remember our day forever only with good thoughts! We would recommend every couple to get organized their wedding in Rome with "Dolce Vita Weddings". Without doubt this was one of our best decisions we've made. By the way we can tell that we have found a lovely friend in Rome and we will keep in touch with you and hopefully will meet us again in Italy and Switzerland....:)

    Grazie mille (we can't say it enough) and hear us soon!!

  3. Daniela,
    We want to thank you for everything you did for our wedding in Rome - from start to finish, you made the overseas planning process so easy! Your attention to detail and eye for the finer things made our wedding an unforgettable event. We could not be more pleased with how the day turned out, and how seamless everything went. We couldn't recommend you more and only wish the best for your future weddings. It was truly not a question in choosing you, and we rest assured knowing we made the absolute best choice. Thank you again for everything you did!

  4. Dear Daniela
    A huge thank you again from our side for all your work and effort during the last couple of months and weeks to help us organizing everything so perfectly. We really had the time of our life and all our friends just LOVED the whole weekend. It will forever stay in our hearts and memories.

    Dear Daniela,
    thank you so much for your perfect organization skills and your very huge support during all the preparations of our wedding. It was great knowing that thanks to you every little detail will be perfectly organized. The catering you chose was amazing, the music unforgettable and the decoration so beautiful. Also the DJ and the bar you suggested contributed a lot to the great party we had. Without you, none of this would have been possible and we would have been completely lost in choosing the right suppliers. We will never forget that you made our wedding weekend so special and helped us to create this unforgettable memory.
    Lots of love from Switzerland

  5. Hi Daniela,
    We're back now after our post-Rome camping adventure with the dogs and we're already looking at houses in Italy!

    We just wanted to say thank you again for everything you did for us, we know that you probably feel you didn't do much in comparison with some of your other clients but we really couldn't have done it without you. Right from the start you understood exactly what type of wedding we wanted and you helped us to build it without trying to force us into taking extra bits that we didn't want and your support with the church and paperwork was truly invaluable. The day went more perfectly than we ever could have hoped and we know that's thanks to you. If we ever hear of anyone planning a wedding in Rome we'll certainly be telling them to get in contact with you!

    You've been amazing and we'll miss e-mailing you but if we do move out there we'll certainly meet up with you for dinner and drinks!

    All of our love to you and Scot

  8. If you are looking for the perfect wedding in Rome, then you have found the perfect wedding planner.
    From the first time we contacted Daniela, she was extremely professional, very organised and always responded promptly. Not only is Daniela great at her job, but she is also a lovely caring person too. This made the whole process of organising our wedding much easier.
    Nothing was ever a problem and Daniela always went over and above to make sure everything was right for us. As our own dogs couldn't make it to our wedding, Daniela suggested that her little dog Scot could be a guest to represent them, this was the perfect touch to make our wedding a wonderful day that we will never forget. I can't thank Daniela enough, our day was more special than we ever expected and it was all thanks to her... and little Scot too of course!

  9. Hi Daniela,

    I just wanted to write to you to express our sincere appreciation for all of your hard work and planning to make our special day one to remember. Everything went as planned and was better than we could've imagined! We enjoyed working with the photographer and can't wait to see the photos! The reception area and staff was AMAZING--they were very attentive to our needs, providing 5-star service. Even though it was difficult at times planning from thousands of miles away, I couldn't have chosen a better wedding planner :) If you ever need me to speak/email any potential clients about our experience working with you, please let me know.
    Thanks again for a remarkable experience!

  11. Dear Daniela,
    I just wanted to say a huge thank you again for the most beautiful wedding day I could have imagined. With all the organisation and things to do over the past months I never dreamed it would be as special as it was, from start to finish. Everybody commented on how refined, elegant & atmospheric it was, which was exactly what we wanted for our day. It really was worth the trip for everyone.

    I hope you enjoyed it too :)

  12. Dear Daniela,
    We would like to thank you for organising the most magical wedding day in Rome last year!

    The service you provide is priceless and working with you was wonderful. You were so organised with the planning, always keeping me on track, you were there when I needed you, responding to my emails at all times.
    Your suggestions were very welcomed and the suppliers you recommended were beyond our expectations!
    Thank you for supporting us with our venue choice, by chatting with my father and reassuring him that the day will be perfect, which it truly was! It went so smoothly and way too fast! Now a year has passed! We cannot thank you enough for all the hard work you did.
    Best wishes

  16. Daniela,
    Troy and I arrived back in the US on Saturday after the most incredible day of our lives followed by a most amazing honeymoon. We were so thrilled with how everything turned out on our special day and wanted to say THANK YOU!

    The day and entire weekend went absolutely flawlessly - everyone was so professional and we were so happy with the results. From the hair and make-up, to the flowers, church, string quartet, Fr. Platania, transportation, dinner(s) and our tour - everything was perfect!! We only wish we could relive the day again!

    Thank you again! We greatly appreciate it and will recommend you to anyone who considers a destination wedding in the most romantic city in the world - Roma :-)

  17. Hi Daniela - I am the father of Mark Hanson for whom you planned the wedding of Mark and Yvonne. I wanted you to know what a great job you did in making the wedding a success. The rehearsal dinner venue, church and wedding dinner location were outstanding! We also thought the priest did an excellent job. Please pass along our thanks to him.

    The event would not have been a success without your leadership. Thank you so much for helping make it a success.

    Well, we're back in Florida for a few days now and almost over the jet lag! Not only was that the best vacation I've ever had, but our wedding day was the best day of my life! You did an amazing job for us and I can't tell you how much we appreciate it. I'm sorry for the confusion that we caused... We love each other and I'm very glad we went forward. Again, you are a lovely, professional woman and it was my pleasure to have met and done business with you. Thank you so very much.

    We are home from Italy after a very lovely honeymoon and might I say, the most wonderful wedding :) Thank you so much for all you did for us, we felt like our day was absolutely perfect. The music was excellent, the food and service and VIEW at the Palazzo was incredible! Every person who came was raving over it. The ceremony site was gorgeous... we are so happy with everything.
    I'm so glad we were able to work together and so thankful we found you!
    Thanks again for all of your help :)

  21. "With my partner working in the public eye, it was vital we worked with someone who could provide complete discretion. Daniela was pro active, positive and always contactable. She has fabulous contacts and all the suppliers we worked with provided the highest quality service. Daniela was not only coordinating our wedding but a photo shoot for a national magazine in the U.K (as our wedding pictures were being shown in HELLO! magazine), we had 2 cameramen, a photographer, makeup artists, different locations, carriages and cars and she co ordinated it all effortlessly. From start to finish the process of planning my wedding with Daniela was wonderful and her presence on the day itself was incredibly calming. I would whole heartily recommend Daniela for a personal yet professional service that ensured we had the most magical wedding day."

  23. With our hearts set on a wedding in Rome, we looked online for a wedding planner to help as we had never even visited Rome and didn’t really know how to go about planning the wedding. We came across Daniela’s website and found it extremely informative and helpful; therefore we decided to contact her directly to discuss our plans.
    Choosing Daniela was a great decision, she is not only friendly and a nice person but provides an intelligent, professional and personal service and is always available any time you need her. No request or question is too big or too small and her knowledge and experience is invaluable. Daniela really listens to what you want and also has many ideas and tips, which can really make your day special as it did for us.
    With everything taken care of down to the last detail well in advance of the wedding, we along with our family and friends who attended, were able to relax and enjoy the city of Rome in the days leading up to the wedding and there is definitely no better place to be together before the big day.
    Putting your trust in someone on the other side of a computer can be daunting but believe me when I say you cannot go wrong with Daniela, she will as she did for us give you the perfect wedding day.
    On behalf of myself, my new wife and all who attended the wedding I would like to say a big thank you to Daniela for giving us a perfect most special day which we will remember forever. We couldn’t have done it without you.

  24. Hello Daniela...
    Well unfortunately we are home! The honeymoon had to end but what a fantastic one it was.
    Thank you again for everything, everyone who attended commented on how efficient and relaxed you were which in turn made us relaxed and enjoy the day.
    We also got the wow factor from people about the view!! Mission accomplished.
    Daniela of course I would be a reference for you it would be my pleasure, I can even say how you fixed the weather for us! How many wedding planners can do that? You have been fantastic and without you we couldn’t have done it.
    Hope you're having a relaxing weekend!!

  25. Hello Daniela,
    Thank you for your email. We would like to thank you for all your help with our wedding. It was perfect in every way.
    We could not have held our wedding in Rome without your expert help, and would like to thank you for your advice and for making sure things - especially the paperwork - went smoothly.
    I know it was a very small wedding! But it was a very special day for us, and one that we will always remember.
    Best wishes

  26. Daniela is the best! We'd do anything for her! Our wedding couldn't have gone any smoother. I'm a financial advisor and I had a lot of reservations about sending money to someone I didn't know in a different country. I did what you are doing. I contacted 3 people Daniela had worked with and I contacted our hotel concierge. She had an wonderful reputation.
    I'm sure you have your own questions and if you like we'd be more than happy to Skype, talk on the phone or email. We'd do anything for Daniela!

    Thank you so much for organising a very special day for us.
    It was a fabulous service. The flowers were lovely and the music at the church was perfect. Please pass on our thanks to the organist and singer. The photographs are excellent…
    The restaurant meal was excellent and the views were unbelievable. We ordered 3 extra bottles of wine at the reception and the restaurant were very kind to provide these free of charge.
    We all particularly liked the traditional wedding cake!
    All you hard work was much appreciated and the day ran really smoothly. We would have no hesitation to recommend your services to anyone getting married in Rome.

    ...Both of us want to thank you for making our day so special and so easy to manage. You were honest, forthcoming, personable but at the same time professional. We didn't realize how many little things had to be taken care of even though our wedding was so simple. You also tried to work within our budget which we very much appreciate...
    Thank you for helping us plan this memorable event and should you need a reference, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    We can not thank you enough for all that you have done for us for our wedding. Everything turned out perfectly and the event was better then we had ever expected. Every single detail was taken care of, not only did we get to enjoy our wedding, we were able to enjoy Italy before the event because we were always assured that things were taken care of. Your communication with us was always clear and we never felt pressured to do something we did not feel comfortable with. Every single detail was memorable from our drivers and photographers to our actual ceremony and reception, we loved everything and will always have you to thank for creating such a memorable day for all of us.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you Daniela!

  35. Daniela was our wedding planner when we got married in Rome last September. I am English and my husband is South African and we had only just moved to Rome when we got engaged so were still very new to the city and spoke very little Italian. We decided to employ a wedding planner when we realised that we couldn’t cope with the organisation of a wedding in Italy by ourselves. We spoke to various companies but chose Daniela because she offered a very personal and flexible service. We felt that the other wedding planners we interviewed were less open to our ideas and we did not feel that we would get such an individual, focused and friendly service with them.

    Daniela proved to be an exceptional wedding planner. Being an Italian who speaks absolutely perfect English, she was able to effectively communicate our needs to all the local Italian vendors and people involved in the organisation of our wedding – the florist, the church, the caterer, the venue owner etc. Nothing was too big a problem or too strange a request. For example, we wanted a busker who played guitar in Piazza Navona to play at our wedding and Daniela duly went to find him one night to offer him the job. We also wanted orange and lemon trees to decorate our outdoor dining area so Daniela drove to many of Rome’s garden centres to find us the best deal.

    Daniela had organised many weddings in and around Rome before ours so already had a contact book full of reliable vendors and was able to tap into her resources easily with regard to our specific needs. She is very dependable, intelligent and cooperative and, above all, she is calm. Weddings can be very fraught and ours was no exception but Daniela was always composed, efficient, helpful and encouraging. We felt we could call or email her with any problem or idea at any time and she would be willing to take it on board and use her initiative to find a solution. She was very mindful of our budget and often advised us when she thought we could save money in one area so it could be better used in another.

    Daniela is honest, intelligent, friendly, imaginative and dependable. She has the perfect characteristics for the ideal wedding planner and we would have no reservations in recommending her to any couple wanting to get married in Italy.

We will never forget it, and we will never forget you and what you did for us. Thank you. And if you are ever in the States you will have to give us a call!!!
    ...Thank you again one hundred miles long, words alone cannot express our gratitude to you...
