We had the good fortune of connecting with Sara Azzi and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sara, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
“An event shouldn’t be just an experiential thing; it should be an emotional thing.” Creating space for real emotion: for the couples to feel, experience, and remember deeply with their families and friends. Your experience at your wedding, to create tangible memories you will hold dear all your life: this is what matters so much to me. As a Wedding & Events Planner, I always do everything I can to treasure this.
Wedding days can go by too fast. Suddenly, you are surrounded by friends, family, and coworkers as you are dressed in a beautiful wedding gown or tuxedo. You will be the center of attention, often being pulled in various directions to talk with all your guests and take photos, and your wedding day might end up feeling surreal.
To allow the couple to focus, I always make sure to create a timeline with a buffer room. This precaution will keep the bride and groom at ease since they know they have plenty of time worked into the schedule to be flexible with however the day goes. They will use those moments to enjoy the details: the sound of the laughter, the champagne taste, and the perfume of the bouquet. They will truly feel what is going on, and this is priceless.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My wedding planning agency is specialized in destination weddings. We tailor destination events for couples who love Italy and wish to say “Yes” in our beautiful country. Since my earliest childhood, I have lived in an international surrounding. Because of my father’s work, I was brought up as an “ex-pat.” Before becoming a Wedding Planner, I worked for several years in the fashion industry, and I lived in many different cities: Milan, Paris, Beirut, Abu Dhabi, and Berlin. Thanks to the traveling, I speak five languages fluently, and I got to know in-depth different cultures and traditions.
My international background makes it easy for me to interact with couples from different nationalities and create fabulous wedding receptions. Indian, Orthodox, Symbolic, or Interfaith ceremony: name it, and we will tailor it upon your wishes!
I am wedding addicted! I cannot have enough of the energy, enthusiasm, and satisfaction that my work gives me every day, and I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Brera and Via Solferino are my favorite districts: you can stroll around the neighborhood and discover small boutiques, wine bars, and cafes. If you are in the mood for a fancy place, Martini Dolce&Gabbana is on top of my list: exclusive atmosphere and fantastic drinks, away from the crowd of the shopping streets. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
A special shoutout to all the wedding professionals in Italy, the past months have been very hard for all of us, but we need to stay strong! And of course, to all the couples (who also became friends!) who chose Romance in Italy to plan their special day. It’s been an honor to be part of your happiness!
