About Us

Hello,

Let me say that I am very happy  you found us! And I hope that one day I will get to meet you as well.

Choosing the right wedding planner is so important and not an easy decision to make. Before you  decide who will be the person by your side on this important day you should also ask yourself what do you expect from the wedding planner. What would you like them to do and  what kind of personality should they have . Because this person will become very close to you during the planning process.

Therefore I will try to explain  what stands behind Italian Boutique Weddings, so that you can understand us better and decide if we could be the right choice for you.

WHY

Everything happens for a reason, and often the best things are created because of the personal experience and a need for something different.

This is what happened with me, I was a bride myself and I saw a need for a different approach to the wedding planning business. I felt that it requires more emotions, empathy , honesty and willingness to go the extra mile. Because I think that a wedding planner, is essentially your advocate, a friend and someone who will take care of you. Especially for destination weddings, where the couple can not be physically in Italy to oversee everything, you need someone who would do everything for you, as if you were doing that for yourself. This is also my motivation- to plan a wedding as if I was doing it for myself, meaning always do the best possible.

WHO

My name is Santa and I am the founder of the company. Before I came to this field, I have worked in a corporate world, in many countries of the world- from Europe to Asia, Middle East and South America. These experiences taught me so many valuable life lessons, importance of adjusting to change and always trying new  things as well as the ability to speak 5 languages.

I am very passionate about what I do and my empathy helps me feel the people better, so that I can always do my best to help .  As I have been a bride myself, I can relate and understand you better, this way adjusting my work to your needs.  

And apart from my personal experience, the reason for this job change is that I have always been creative, and have enjoyed to create celebrations for other.  I love to invent things, and understand how something is made. This is how the flower passion also came. Apart from my childhood love for the flowers, as in most of my photos I am always with flowers in my hands. I  appreciate beautifully prepared flower arrangements and therefore wanted to try  is as well, so this is how I started working with flowers. I for sure love what I create, but the real judge will be you if you like my work . 

HOW

Wedding planning is such a creative process, therefore I  think that it is an advantage when you have one person who oversees and most importantly takes care of all the aspects of the wedding. Therefore apart from the wedding planning , we also take care of the styling and if needed florals as well.  The visual aspect  and attention to details is very important, that’s why I think that well curated details make the difference. You will see me personally doing what ever needs to be done . My approach is very hands on, even if the task isn’t mine . Of course behind me there is a wonderful team who helps me to ensure that the magic happens. But I can proudly say that I am involved in all the processes and am not afraid to get my hands dirty.
