My wife and I have been married for 19 years and live in the United States. I had a business trip planned for Sicily and Rome in the summer of 2014 and I wanted to surprise my wife with a renewing of our vows. It is something she has always wanted to do and my wife thought we would be planning it for our 20th. I knew I needed someone overseas to help me out and after interviewing three other companies I chose Weddings in Sicily and Doriana was my agent. I told her everything that “had to happen” or I wouldn’t do it. This included a ceremony on the beach at sunset, a violinist and cellist, photographer and videographer, and a Pentecostal pastor and a clear sunny day.
Well…Doriana came through in every aspect of my demands. Her communication skills are tops in business especially dealing with an overseas client. This company is the best in the business by far. Highly recommend and definitely ask for Doriana!
Thanks so much for making that day very special.

The following is a letter of recommendation for the exceptional services provided by Doriana Briguglio, our Wedding Coordinator before and during our wedding day.
A wedding should be known as the most memorable time of two people’s lives, and for us on September 10th, 2011, it was, with the help and guidance of Doriana Briguglio.
After many false starts trying to plan our wedding in Sicily from Dallas, TX, I was
fortunate to find Doriana on the internet and contacted her for help. I knew from the start that I was in great hands. There were many complicated details to attend to and I could not have had the wedding our dreams without Doriana’s professional guidance.
She traveled to many venues to chose the perfect location and confirmed a vineyard that agreed to have our wedding even though they were not in the wedding business.
Doriana’s efforts to make this day so special for us were extraordinary. Her
organizational skills were impeccable and her attention to detail took so much pressure off of me while I was tending to many logistical details myself. She is very responsive and always made herself available to me, day or night, without hesitation.
On our wedding day, Doriana’s calm presence made me feel so at ease and I remember thinking there could not be a more perfect wedding. Our guests are still talking about how our wedding, the venue and the food could be planned from such a distance. I truly believe that Doriana was the only person who could have made this happen for us and not only is she the best wedding planner ever, she is now family.
This recommendation has not even begun to show the appreciation that both Daniele and I have for Doriana’s services, and I would be more than willing to speak to anyone on Doriana’s behalf as a recommendation for one of the most cherished days of both of our lives.

When we began planning our wedding in Sicily we never imagined that friends and family would still be talking about it five years later. Even at our friends wedding,guests were telling us they had heard what an incredible day it was and many say it was the best wedding they have ever been to! Doriana made all this possible with her flawless organisation and calm influence! Our guests often tell us they hope we can all return one day they enjoyed it so much. Doriana your fantastic!
We hope this is okay Doriana, everyone really does say it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

I hope you got back safely to Catania after a very long day organising everyone! I just wanted to quickly say another big GRAZIE MILLE. Everyone is telling me it is the best wedding they’ve ever been to and no-one can believe we did not have a rehearsal before the actual wedding day because it all went off very smoothly! This is because of your military precision direction – WELL DONE!
Here is one photo that I thought you might like to see. We are really looking forward to the official photographs too.
Kind regards as ever,
Just to let you know everything has arrived today!!
Giuseppe is at home watching everything now and he says the pictures are AMAZING. He says the photos have been set to music on a slide show.. What a lovely, lovely surprise and thank you so very much. Grazie mille! You have been absolutely brilliant and you are so professional. I know you don’t want me to thank you but I must say (I have also told everyone) without you it would not have gone smoothly or been so perfect. I wish we could have the day all over again but this time in slow motion and Mrs Francesca Ventimiglia feels the same as me!
What a day, what memories!
