What They’re Saying About Us
The most magical, organized elopement with Original Tuscan Wedding
“Wow, just wow! We eloped in Tuscany in September 2023, and Original Tuscan Wedding went above and beyond to make our wedding such a beautiful, memorable day. We originally decided on OTW because of how quickly Elizabeth replied to our initial inquiries and sent us details on pricing, locations, etc. — this was the best decision, because she was just as organized and responsive throughout the entire planning process. My husband and I frequently joked we had next to no wedding stress because Elizabeth was so effcient in taking care of everything for us. We really liked her elopement “package” options, which included trusted vendors, help searching for a venue, clear add-on options, and more. Everything was so painless, which was especially nice since we were located in Canada and couldn’t physically visit during covid lockdowns. It was also lovely that Elizabeth was our offciant as she got to know us throughout the experience, making the ceremony very intimate.Mariah P.married on 22/03/2023
Our actual wedding day went seamlessly, largely due to Elizabeth coordinating everything while my husband and I focused on getting ready and enjoying the moment. I felt like the ffowers, arch, ceremony setup, table, and photographer just magically materialized because I didn’t have to think of any of it! My biggest fear with eloping was that I would feel “alone” in moments you would usually have a bridesmaid or parent (stuff like greeting the photographer, doing up your dress, checking for stuff in your teeth), but Elizabeth fflled that role perfectly. She was always available to help and usually already a few steps ahead of us. One good (and funny) example was when I noticed one ffower in my bouquet I didn’t love. It wasn’t a big deal, so I just pulled it out and thought no one noticed. But I guess Elizabeth saw I had removed it and headed straight back to remove the same ffower from the arch before I walked down the aisle. Her attention to detail was phenomenal.
Overall, we cannot recommend Original Tuscan Wedding and Elizabeth enough! We really felt like she made our wedding vision come to life and truly cared about making it special. We also felt like the pricing was extremely reasonable and transparent. If you’re on the fence about eloping, this is your sign to reach out to OTW now! We couldn’t have pulled off our dream wedding without them.”
The most amazing wedding planners of all time
“I honestly dont know where to start- Originally our wedding was planned for 2020 in italy, but due to covid that could not happen. Elizabeth and Ann took care of ALL the wedding changes and rescheduling with every single vendor. The process was completely seamless for us. We were �nally able to have our wedding in Tuscany in August of 2022. Every single detail was perfect, not one thing was missed. They even made sure our 10 month old son was taken care of and had a pack n play to sleep at the venue.Alexandramarried on 06/08/2022
Our guests are still talking about our wedding to this day! We wish we could re live it over and over and we know that none of it would have been possible without Elizabeth and Ann guiding us in the right direction every step of the way. They work with all of the top vendors in italy, you honestly can not go wrong. They are worth every single penny!!!”
Amazing Wedding Planning Team!
“The Original Tuscan Wedding Team (Ann and Elizabeth), were truly incredible and it's clear they have their business totally dialed in. We would highly recommend them to anyone. We planned our destination wedding from CA and couldn't have asked for a more responsive (amazing on email communication), helpful, flexible (our wedding was postponed twice due to the pandemic), and kind wedding planning duo. We really couldn't have done this without them, especially during a time when planning a wedding was very tricky with the current state of the world. Elizabeth and Ann kept us sane and reassured us throughout the 2+ years we were in touch with them and we were SO thankful for their partnership and expertise. After emailing and communicating back and forth for 2+ years, we really got to know them!Kendall L.married on 12/05/2022
It is apparent that they are well respected in Tuscany in their industry. We hosted several events during our wedding week and Elizabeth helped make each event/activity seamless. Throughout the planning process, they answered all of our many questions and emails quickly and made us feel really comfortable with all of the details of our wedding and wedding events while planning from across the world. They have a great list of vendors, who were all so talented and helped give us our dream wedding in the countryside of Siena. All of the vendors exceeded our expectations. They also had wonderful venue suggestions, which we ended up going with one of their suggestions and fell in love with the place. Everything OTW helped us with was above and beyond.
Every detail was pure magic and we honestly were blown away by how perfect each event was. We felt so relaxed on our wedding day and it was all thanks to OTW and the wonderful vendors they referred us to. The week in Siena was one of the best of our lives.
Thank you OTW! XO”
Great service and team, would highly recommend
“Elizabeth and Ann are great! Listened to what we wanted and gave us an amazing day! Our wedding was postponed twice due to covid and Elizabeth was so helpful and sorted everything. All the services they recommended to use were great and very friendly. Would highly recommend OTW. Thank you so much for making our wedding in Italy so special. L&A”Terrian I.married on 05/07/2022
OTW is your best choice for a destination wedding in Tuscany!
“OTW has the perfect local knowledge of venues and customs to make planning a destination wedding seamless and manageable. They offer generous availability and excellent responsiveness via email and video meetings and offer professional and personal guidance throughout the process. The team is capable, friendly and reliable - everything you need to plan a successful wedding. I would recommend OTW without hesitation to any couple planning a destination wedding in Tuscany.”Lauren H.married on 03/06/2022
Everything We Hoped For and More!
“When we decided to have a destination wedding, we knew we had a daunting task ahead of us. Thankfully we had Elizabeth and the OTW team, who made our destination wedding exceed every expectation we could have dreamed of. Throughout the entire process, Elizabeth made everything so simple and easy. Her knowledge of the vendors, attention to detail, responsiveness, and general advice made the entire planning process go seamlessly. Everyone says that planning a wedding is stressful, but we never had that experience because of OTW. Not only did Elizabeth help us plan our wedding, she also helped us plan our welcome dinner and farewell brunch. All of our guests are still raving about the excellent welcome dinner restaurant we picked (which was Elizabeth's suggestion), as well as the amazing food at the farewell brunch (which was at our venue, which Elizabeth helped us pick). On our wedding day, Elizabeth was there to make sure everything ran smoothly, and we just got to enjoy ourselves and have fun. The wedding was perfect in every way, and so much of that is due to Elizabeth's meticulous planning. We could not imagine a better wedding planner to have, and we are so grateful to have found OTW. Every person getting married in Italy should hire OTW!”Paulinamarried on 28/04/2022
Perfect Fairytale Wedding
“I always dreamed of having my wedding in Italy and if it wasn’t for Original Tuscan Wedding, Elizabeth, and Ann I truly don’t think it would have ever happened. I messaged many wedding planners in Italy that warned me about my budget and the amount of guests I planned to have- leading me down a path of doubt. Finding Original Tuscan Weddings was a breath of fresh air and gave me hope for my dream wedding. Right away Elizabeth made me feel like everything was possible and I couldn’t sign their contract fast enough! I am American and since Elizabeth is originally from the states this gave me a lot of confidence that we would be able to easily communicate and she would know my expectations. Elizabeth helped me select the perfect venue and an amazing vineyard for all of my guests stay together. She helped us plan a welcome party, rehearsal dinner, a church ceremony and a dream wedding reception. This was also in the middle of the pandemic, and Elizabeth kept me updated with everything happening in Italy at the time. She takes care of everything and walks you through every step so you never feel overwhelmed. She also helped me and my friends set up incredible smaller parties in Florence for a few nights before our wedding. She knows it all! Rooftop parties, group dinners, and winery tours... all the best places you can be Florence. Each event Elizabeth helped me plan was unforgettable and my friends and family would say the same. We communicated mainly through email and a few zoom calls. Elizabeth was patient and detailed. The emails were always responded to very quickly and no question was too big or small. Elizabeth went above and beyond to solve any and every issue that came up. She is an absolute expert in her profession. The vendors she suggested from the catering, to the flowers, photography, transportation, music, makeup etc are all top notch. The best of the best vendors! I was blown away with each and every company. Everyone was incredible to work with. The process was organized and Elizabeth slowly guided us through all the decisions that needed to be made. By the time the wedding came there was nothing left to worry about because everything was in place. I cannot put into words how lucky I feel to have found Original Tuscan Wedding. My family and friends cannot stop saying how amazing and perfect everything was and I always give the credit to OTW. Each and every moment is a memory I wish to hold onto forever. Original Tuscan Wedding is professional, understanding, easy to work with, supportive, knowledgable and amazing at what they do. They will be the voice of reason to help you stay on budget but also make sure you get the wedding of your dreams. I lived the wedding of my dreams and it’s all thanks to OTW! I would plan my wedding again and again if I could.”Kelsey L.married on 21/04/2022
Once in a Lifetime Experience with the Dream Team!
“When my wife first brought up the idea of getting married in Italy, it seemed like an impossible feat. I had no clue how to even wrap my head around pulling off a wedding like this. If you are reading this review and feeling any apprehension about trying to plan a wedding like this (especially from far away), I highly encourage you to give Elizabeth a call. Working with Elizabeth & Ann is the best decision we could have possibly made. They made our dream a reality. Elizabeth was the ultimate partner during the process. She helped us think through every single detail, no matter how small. She communicated proactively & responded immediately, even when our responses were delayed. She advocated for us in every situation that arose, big or small. Reflecting back on our experience (3 events over the course of 3 days at 3 different venues!), every moment went off without a hitch. And when uncontrollable things popped up (like rain 2 minutes before the start of our ceremony), both Elizabeth & Ann were in the background making sure things went so smooth that it all felt like part of the plan from the beginning. It's amazing to think this was all a reality, especially planning the entire thing from the US with only one visit over the course of 2 days to the venue and with our vendors. Don't hesitate! Call Elizabeth & Ann now. It will be the best possible decision you can make to plan your dream wedding in Tuscany. Thank you so much for a magical experience!”Nick A.married on 04/09/2021
Magical Tuscan Wedding
“Elizabeth, Ann and the OTW team were incredibly wonderful throughout our entire wedding planning process -- we highly recommend them! They guided us through planning an overseas wedding amidst complex and ever-changing COVID regulations and helped provide a safe, memorable experience to our guests from different locations around the world. We appreciated their responsiveness to emails, professionalism, their handling all the details amidst my husband and my busy work schedules, and most importantly their creativity in bringing the vision of our Italian wedding to life. Our wedding was truly a day we will never forget due to the OTW's team's efforts!”Melinda F.married on 01/09/2021
Working with OTW was an amazing experience!
“My husband and I started working with Original Tuscan Wedding late 2019/early 2020 and were married in Florence in October of 2021. From the initial Skype call we had with Elizabeth we knew we wanted to work with her as our wedding planner. She is very knowledgable about wedding planning and knew many different areas of Italy to be able to recommend a selection of venues. Then entire process of planning was so enjoyable because of Elizabeth and OTW. Yes, of course it was stressful at times due to the number of decisions we had to make (and we were planning in the middle of a pandemic) but Elizabeth was so supportive, responsive to our questions/concerns and keep open lines of communication so we knew what tasks to expect next. Jumping ahead to our welcome party, wedding and pizza party, Elizabeth was the best! She was cool, calm and collected the entire time which allowed us to really be in the moment and enjoy our wedding events. We were sad to say good bye to her at our pizza party! I cannot recommend Original Tuscan Wedding enough, she was instrumental to our wedding activities and helped us and our guests have an incredible time!”Francine V.married on 21/04/2021
Would never have had a Tuscan Destination Wedding Without
“We're from the states and I didn't even know how to go about thinking of having a destination wedding in Tuscany. Once I found OTW it all seemed too easy, because they took care of everything! To name a few: found our dream venue, provided and communicated with all the amazing vendors, gave very clear directions on logistics, helped me with the timeline... I could go on. And more incredibly, we had to move our wedding 3 times because of Covid and they didn't miss a beat. Rebooking all the vendors couldn't have been more seamless. We worked specifically with Elizabeth who was a pleasure to collaborate with and made the planning a wedding fun! Thank you so much OTW for helping throw us the wedding of our dreams!”Lauren F.married on 06/02/2021
Amazing Experience, Highly Recommend
“OTW did an incredible job of making our day so special. The surrounding events were all great and the wedding day was so smooth, stress-free and well- organized. Elizabeth went the extra mile to make sure everything was handled and that we were happy with the results. All of their vendors are lovely and they work well with all their teams. We feel the wedding was perfect, couldn't have asked for more!”Amy C.married on 18/07/2020
“If you are planning a wedding in Tuscany, look no further than Elizabeth. From the moment we met her, we knew we were in good hands. Elizabeth is a true professional and expert in planning Tuscan weddings. Our wedding at Borgo Petrognano in September was truly a fairytale thanks to her impeccable attention to detail and unrivaled organizational skills. Every aspect of our day was planned to perfection and executed seamlessly, leaving us and our guests with memories that will last a lifetime. The setting was stunning and the food was delicious. She truly exceeded all of our expectations and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. We highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone planning a wedding in Tuscany, you will not be disappointed!”Krista M.married on 29/05/2020
OTW Could Not Have Been Better!
“Being from the US and wanting to have our wedding in Italy, we knew it would be important to have a great wedding planner to make our dreams a reality. Working with Elizabeth and OTW could not have been better. We feel SO incredibly fortunate to have found OTW - Elizabeth and team held our hands every step along the way (including rescheduling twice due to covid!) and were so organized, gave great advice, and made us feel confident that our special day would occur with all of the uncertainty we were facing! We finally were able to have our dream wedding in September 2021, and it was more than we could have dreamed of. We will forever be grateful to Elizabeth and Original Tuscan Wedding - our friends and family haven't stopped talking about what an amazing experience it was since! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”Christina H.married on 23/05/2020
Wonderful wedding planning experience!
“We started working with Elizabeth in April of this year and had our wedding in September. Our experience was very positive and we are very happy that we decided to go with OTC! Our communication was fast and frequent. Elizabeth always answered our questions quickly and offered numerous solutions and options for the things we had in mind. We relied on Elizabeth for everything, and she certainly delivered. We were a little nervous about planning such a special day from afar, and were worried about things getting lost in translation. BUT, it turned out that all we had to do was relax and trust OTC. Everything that we imaged for our day, from flowers, music, food to even our suite, was absolutely amazing! The Florist Team that OTC works with (Violamalvaflowers) did an amazing job with all of our flower decor and bouquets. They took special care to make the arch look the way I imagined it, which was very much appreciated! We couldn't be happier with how things turned out on our wedding day. Elizabeth is a wonderful wedding planner who will make sure that you and your guests are happy on your special day. She does a great job at keeping all of the decisions and expenses organized and clearly communicates what, where and how. But, she especially excelled at making sure that our day was as we imagined it, and that is exactly what we needed from our planners 🙂 Thank you Elizabeth for your support and effort. We hope our paths will cross again in the near future.”Alina L.married on18/09/2019
