Q: Do you have a saying?
A:“My motto is probably ‘have faith, no fear.‘ I’ve met a very special person in Nashville. During his speech I felt like he was talking directly to me.I’ve stopped to have fear of the new future and started trusting my feelings.”
Q: “If you could describe yourself in three words besides ‘wedding designer and coordinator,‘ what would they be?”
A:”Maybe I’m flattering myself, but I would say, ‘Imaginative, descreete, and careful”.
Q: Where do you get your inspirations?
A:: “I like to say that I try to find inspirations everywhere: an old picture, a landscape, or a present. I’ve always found that listening to music really helps when I design a wedding or an event. It helps me get into that mode, helping me come up with new ideas in the process.”
Q: Which Apulian city or location is your favorite?
A::“It’s really hard to pick just one! I will mention three of them! There are so many fantastic places here. Among the best Apulian places, I really recommend the Church of St. Michael in Frangesto.This is one of the best location for those who want to get married in Puglia. Romantic churches in Puglia are perfect for an intimate wedding ceremony!If you are looking for a regal,stunning and rich of history church,then the Basilica of St. Martin in Martina Franca will leave you breathless! For a symbolic ceremony I can suggest Monopoli.Here couples could have their unique wedding ceremony set at the Carlo V Castle in Monopoli,surrounded by the sea. What a spectacular view! I have many other favorite locations and still more to find.What really makes the difference when you want to plan a wedding abroad is to find a riable passionate wedding designer and coordinator like me!”
