Viviana works hard to accommodate all requests from her clients, focusing on exclusivity and providing a bespoke service. “There are those who ask for an intimate wedding in Cortina d'Ampezzo, and those who ask for a romantic wedding in Venice,” she explains. “The services I provide are different every time, from the arrival of the guests, search for hotels for guests, the organisation of activities, the discovery of the place where they choose to get married, the search for suppliers, the organisation of the entire wedding, and the guests.” For each couple, Viviana creates a customised project, incorporating her core values of empathy, sustainability, attention to detail, and attention to guests, both adults and children. “I am passionate about every story and I try to make every couple's dreams come true, respecting their wishes and accompanying them to make the best choices for their most beautiful day.” Viviana has built her company since 2012 and a team since last year, when she realized it wasn't possible to continue doing everything alone. Today she seeks to instill in her team the same level of passion and emotion that she feels. “For me it is important to respect the wishes of the customers, supporting their choices even if they can sometimes be complicated”, I get excited about every project. “I really love my job; the passion with which I do it leads me to improve myself more and more. I organize every wedding with the utmost seriousness, I don't have schedules, I study, I keep up to date, I continuously follow courses, I travel and I try to discover places that are not overused." Viviana's ultimate goal for every wedding is to bring a personalized and professional touch, and she caters to couples who want something a little more bespoke, intimate and unique for their big day. His strong point is the ability to manage an event according to the characteristics, image and values required by the couple and his strong problem solving skills, as well as his varied experience in event management, all that he has brought Viviana to always receive excellent feedback from her customers and their guests.
