Grazie Mille Sarah and Daniella! I honestly don’t know where to start in beginning to thank both Sarah and Daniella in making our dream wedding a reality! Right from the beginning Sarah was brilliant at communicating with us and our Venue, Villa Grazioli. About 3 months in to the planning process we had an issue with our contract with the hotel that I was finding difficult to sort with Villa Grazioli over email. One phone call to Sarah and she was on the case and had it sorted straight away. I had asked Sarah to find us a makeup artist and a DJ and I was a little nervous about how both would turn out but again both of them on the day were AMAZING! Our DJ Grabrielle made our wedding evening a PARTY and it was fantastic! Ohh and I can't forget our Cellist - highly recommend.
Sarah and Daniella made sure we were on top of everything from a legal perspective and kept on top of me making sure I would meet deadlines! (The legal stuff was our main worry, and they handled everything Italy side and were way way more efficient than our legal system over here!)
On the day, Sarah and Daniella made sure everything was absolutely perfect and went off without a hitch.
It was really lovely to have met you both, you really did make our dream destination wedding into a reality, and a much better one than we could ever of imagined!
Grazie Mille! Love Mr & Mrs Hannon. 3.9.18

We are very happy to have choosen Weddings in Rome. From the first contact with Sarah to the big Day everything felt safe and professional. The two lovely ladies Sarah and Daniela helped us to have a wonderful and perfect wedding, just the way we wantes it to be.
Eva & Erik -Summer 2018
I was joking around with Sarah saying she saved our wedding, but she really did! We had some serious last minute issues and Sarah was always very positive and handled everything very quickly and professionally! I could not have imagined a better wedding than what Sarah and Daniela put together—they are really the BEST! Everything Sarah and Daniela did was my vision come to life and we thought it was absolutely perfect! Highly recommend!!!

Sarah has been amazing to work with. She was very accomodating to our requests and was able to quickly grasp what kind of wedding we would like to have. We really liked all of her recommendations for churches and reception venues. Communication by email was very easy and swift.
Once we met her and Daniela in Rome she made sure all the boxes were checked and everything would go smoothly on our big day. During the day she was always in the background, making sure everything was going as planned.
We would highly recommend working with Sarah and Daniela when getting married in Rome!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Sarah! From her first reply to my email, I knew I had located a wedding /event coordinator that was knowledgeable, professional and on top of her business.
Sarah had answers to all of my questions, and offered wonderful idea's I hadn't thought of. If you're looking for a coordinator that will guide you through the entire planning process, and see through to the end with a level of professionalism and thoughtfulness, I promise you Sarah is the individual for you!
Sarah coordinated details of a photographer, (who was simply amazing), driver, wedding flowers, and advice of where to go and what to expect for a Bridge and Groom who had never visited Rome before. Sarah delivered my bouquet and boutonniere personally to our Hotel room and stayed with us, introducing us to the Photographer and Driver who would take us on our magical photo shoot through the beautiful city of Rome.
We will always remember our special day in Rome and have beautiful pictures for a lifetime. Thank you so much Sarah for everything, all of the emails, checklists and giving me the peace of mind and assurance that all would be perfect 5000 miles away when we arrived in Rome.
Weddings in Rome is the Best!

For Americans in Rome we couldn’t have chosen a better bridal consultant than Sarah Delle Fratte and Weddings in Rome. Sarah helped Nick and I choose our venue, music, menu and other many details involved with planning a wedding so far from home. Sarah’s knowledge of local services and her efficient and calm manner gave us the assurance we needed to complete plans for a wonderful Roman wedding. She promptly answered questions via email and she worked within our budget. Though there were no unexpected issues, Sarah was in contact with us from the moment we arrived and all aspects of the wedding materialized as expected. Our ceremony was lovely and the reception was an elegant but fun affair in an opulent setting.
Our chosen venue, an historic palace, was a real life fairytale palace operated by an outstanding Italian staff. On our first visit, Sarah made it possible for us to communicate our wishes and their proposals. Thus we were thrilled to bring 90 friends and family to our beautiful wedding. Sarah and the staff of the palazzo created a memorable wedding that we will never forget. Thank you for making our dream wedding come true!

Our dream (Italian wedding) came true on 8 th April. It was an eventful wedding as it was the Marathon day in Rome. Despite of all the challenges & obstacles it was a great wedding day to cherish.
Sarah is a gem of a person, she will make sure all your needs are met. Very patient, polite & friendly.
We don't have words to express how grateful we are to her & Daniella.
We highly recommend weddings in Rome & Sarah to anyone who needs help & assistance to get married in Italy.
Nevin & Neetha - Spring 2018
Sarah was very helpful and listened to our vision. We talked on the phone once but mainly communicated by email. She responded quickly and answered our questions. She also stayed within our budget! I highly recommend them!
Paige and Curt - From the US
My name is Andrew Setterstrom and I live in Chicago. I hired Weddings in Rome (Sarah Delle Fratte) to help plan our wedding in Rome, which took place in June of 2017. It gives me great pleasure to strongly recommend Weddings in Rome to anyone seeking assistance in planning a wedding in Rome.
From a planning perspective, Sarah helped make a process that is complicated and potentially stressful into a process that was easy and enjoyable. She quickly understood what I desired in a wedding and helped me plan accordingly. Sarah made almost all the arrangements in Italy for the wedding, such as reserving the church, finding a priest that could conduct mass in both English and Spanish, etc. This was extremely helpful to me, as I do not speak Italian and making these arrangements myself would have been nearly impossible. The vendors she works with were all excellent and I could not have been more pleased with their services.
On the wedding day, Sarah and her assistant were on site to help manage the wedding. From my perspective, the wedding went seamlessly and without issue. It was later reported to me, however, that Sarah handled some minor issues that occurred that day. I am grateful to have been blissfully unaware of any problems.
Probably most remarkable was how Sarah personally resolved an issue we had with our hotel. We had rented an entire B and B for the week that we were in Rome. It is a privately owned business, so it is operated by the owner and her son. At the time we were negotiating the rental of the facility, the owner’s son suggested the use of some vendors he works with regularly. It quickly became apparent that the vendors were providing the B and B some sort of kickbacks, as their prices were ludicrously expensive. As such, I declined their services. Less than a week before our arrival at the hotel, I was informed via e-mail that none of our wedding vendors would be allowed in their facilities. This was obviously done in retaliation for not using the B and B’s vendors. Upon learning about this problem, Sarah began personal communications with the owner, including at least one face-to-face meeting. Thankfully, she was able to satisfactorily resolve this issue. Unquestionably, Sarah went above and beyond what was required of her as a wedding planner to ensure that our wedding was a success. I am extremely grateful to her and the staff at Weddings in Rome.
In summary, I do not believe anyone seeking a wedding planner in Rome could find better service than that provided by Weddings in Rome. Without hesitation, I would recommend their services to my family and friends.

We want to highly recommend Weddings In Rome as a destination wedding planning service for Rome, Italy. They handled our 03 June 2017 wedding exceptionally well. Weddings In Rome is very experienced, professional and understood all my needs and concerns in English (since wr don’t speak Italian) without anything being lost in translation.
Our Vatican wedding had some very demanding legal requirements. Sarah helped us work these through to conclusion so that our wedding could proceed as planned. We stuck to our original reception venue and guest estimate and Weddings In Rome held to their original service quote without nickel and diming us with added fees along the way.
The recommendations for the reception venues were first class and the vendors were all highly professional as well. Do use Sarah’s vendor recommendations and save yourself a lot of trouble! Everything went off just the way we planned and our special day was indeed exceptionally special. Can’t wait to review the professional photography and videography of the entire event!
Marissa & Daniel - From the Philippines and the US
If you are considering to get married in Rome or Italy and need help, you have come to the right person. Sarah and her crew are professional, punctual and very nice.
As a bride, you have quite a few thoughts about where, how and when and it's difficult to let go of all the ideas you have and let someone else take charge of and give life to all the ideas. Fortunately they gave us the dream wedding we hoped for and much more than we could imagine. It was a wonderful day. Sarah has been extremely patient in relation to all the questions we have sent her and she gives quick feedback. We have also communicated via Skype and telephone. We also went down to Rome to talk to them and it helped us see what we already had choosen/talked about and made our other choices easier to decide. The partners they use are all as professional as them and they also have a Norwegian makeup / hair stylist (recommended) Anne Mette is highly skilled and flexible. She will give you that special bridal glow, amazing singer (she made third place in Italian "the voice") and the florist who totally understood my vision.
On our wedding day Sarah and her colleague were there all day and made sure everything went well, which was a great security for us. We could really relax and enjoy the day. Even though we were a small wedding we were equally well taken care of. I highly recommend her! Thank you for making our dreamday come true!

Sarah was the best decision we made for our wedding. To say the least, she is local to Rome, offers the convenience of an American and is very experienced and knowledgeable about the suppliers, venues etc. Our day went by seamlessly and we are ever grateful to Sarah and team for their excellence! Thank you for making our long distance remote wedding planning process so pleasurable!
Pritika & Davide - From India and Italy
After deciding to marry in Rome, and embarking on what seemed like a daunting, near impossible task in just eight months, it only took the initial conversation with Sarah, to make the seemingly impossible, possible.
I had looked at several other sites and spoken to other planners and just never got that all important " feeling".
Sarah at once made me feel at ease and confident we could arrange the wedding in the relatively short timescale.
I instantly warmed to her, which for anyone that has ever met her, will agree , is not difficult. I felt in safe hands immediately and decided to go with her firm.
When you are organising a wedding, it is not only important to have a professional in charge of dealing with it, but someone who adds that little bit more of themselves to ensure a great day.
Sarah is defiantly that person, not only is she highly professional and effective in planning, but she cares a lot about helping you to achieve your dream wedding for you !
She has excellent local knowledge and a huge list of fantastic suppliers from venues for every type of wedding you could imagine to music and all the services in between.
Everyone was fantastic, we could not have asked for anything more.
We would highly recommend them all.
From what seemed an intimidating prospect initially, with Sarah in charge of the planning I felt very much at ease through all the stages, and much of the worry was put at rest, by her "can do" approach to any obstacles that came up.
Communication was always fast and all my questions or fears, were always addressed quickly.
It turned out to be a wonderful and fun experience organising a wedding in Rome, with Sarah .
The wedding itself, was everything I could have ever hoped for and so so much more, and to know a Sarah and Daniella were there from early morning till late to ensure the day went without a hitch was extremely reassuring.
They were amazing and by the time your wedding comes along, they have become your friends, and it was wonderful to have them there, not only to ensure everything went to plan, but to celebrate with us, our very special day.
We are so grateful that she planned the most beautiful day of our lives.
We will always hold not only the wedding, but all those involved that helped realise our day, very close to our hearts.
Thank you so much " Weddings in Rome".
Lorena & Michael - From Edinburgh
When Alessandro and I decided to get married in Rome, we knew we would need help! Trying to plan a wedding that would appeal to our American, Irish and Italian guests from afar was going to be a challenge. We did a lot of research into wedding planners but when we Skype chatted with Sarah we knew it was a good fit — she immediately understood our desire to have a wedding and reception that valued both of our cultures and would make all of our guests feel welcome. More than that, being from Rome, she had an intimate knowledge of the city and was able to work closely with my now in-laws to find a venue and church. Sarah was respectful of our budget and always offered options that would work while being flexible if I wanted more or changed my mind. She was patient with our busy schedules and my slow responses and was very good at keeping me on track. Her response time is phenomenal which is even more impressive when you realize how busy she is! Adriana was also very helpful in getting our documents organized in Rome and answering our questions for what can be a complicated process! The wedding and reception was perfect! We could not be happier and enjoyed every moment of the experience. I attribute so much of the smoothness of the experience to the team at Weddings in Rome and highly recommend their services to anyone looking to get married in Rome. Thank you to you all!
Anne-Marie & Alessandro - From the US and Italy
Stacy did a lot of research looking for the right Wedding Planners to help us plan our dream Rome wedding from NYC. She was immediately drawn to Sarah's background and to her response to our original questions. We loved that Sarah was local but had lived in NYC and worked in the travel industry. We also appreciated her love for music. She was an amazing planner giving us guidance, vendors and negotiating and sorting out all details of our beautiful wedding. We had amazing flowers, a fun fiat, the most artistic photographers, accommodating hair & makeup and delicious favors (olive oil and local bread and the traditional Jordan almonds). Our guests enjoyed both our welcome party at Romolo and we received no less than every guest complementing our venue, Antica Pesa, for the amazing setting, view and the most delicious food! We had an easy day starting at Villa Laetitia where we both individually stayed got ready in their beautifully unique and Fendi decorated rooms. We went up to the lookout point, me in my fiat and her in a Mercedes, for a memorable first look and then went to the venue for the ceremony, dinner and a night filled with dancing and memory making. Fabio the guitarist learned our songs and added something special to the ceremony with his live guitar playing. We had roughly 60 guests travel from all over and they all made it safely and with plenty of information and direction, all guided by Sarah and Daniela. The reception was decorated beautifully with quotes we love, candles and an escort card table, all done by Sarah and her assistant. I can't say enough about each and every person who played a part in this day. It was so very special and we feel that Sarah, Daniele and Fabio, and the staff at Antica Pesa are now part of our family. THANK YOU!!! Highly recommend!!!

We chose weddings in Rome to help plan our wedding day in the beautiful place of Tivoli, outside Rome. Sarah and Adriana really help with the small details and perfect timing of everything. They chose nothing but the best for us, from the vendors that were all fantastic! to the fabulous locations. They are so sincere and care what they do, it is reflected on your special day. Thank you so much for everything. We'll always remember our wedding day and the special people that we met along the way.
Angela & Ernest - From the U.K.
Sarah and Adriana are incredible! We are grateful and very pleased with their services. They were super easy to work with every step of the way and come our wedding day they made sure everything was on schedule just like we had planned it.They also took care of all the paper work required before and after the wedding. They listened to what we wanted, worked within our budget, and delivered! We had an exceptional and magical wedding! Planning a destination wedding is challenging so I appreciated Sarah and Adriana's knowledge, experience and candor when it came to weighing different decisions. I would recommend Weddings in Rome to anyone and everyone!

We had such an amazing experience working with Sarah. Hands down the best decision I made was working with Weddings in Rome. Getting married in another country isn't always the easiest but Sarah took away all our stress and eased all our worries. She was hands on from the beginning and always emailed me back in a timely manner. Our reception couldn't of been more perfect! On top of it all they went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. They even were kind enough to hold onto my wedding dress for 2 weeks while we went on our honeymoon. Thank you Sarah and Adriana for all your help we could not of pulled this off without you!

We recently married in Rome with the amazing help of Sarah and Adriana. What an amazing experience! Coming all the way from Australia it was a bit scary at first but once I contacted Sarah, the process was amazingly easy and I didn't feel worried the entire time! All the paperwork and costs were easily arranged; and everyone that was recommended to me was just wonderful! From Anne-Mette; the hairdresser extraordinaire who made me into a bride; to Gianni our wonderful and patient photographer; to Dario our friendly and fun driver! What a fantastic day; the photos turned out brilliantly and our reception dinner was just divine. Couldn't have asked for an easier experience. Thank you so much!

We are recently home to Ireland after a wonderful wedding in Rome, thanks to Sarah and Adrianna at Weddings in Rome. Everything ran very smoothly and to time - and they ensured that all of the services we required such as photography and transport were handled my professionals, and that all of our paperwork was in order. We would definitely recommend Weddings in Rome.

After emailing several other coordinators, I was getting worried no one would actually write back. We were in touch with another vendor who highly recommended Sarah and her team. After writing, she emailed back very quickly and we were hooked. In one of the first emails to Sarah we approached her with a delicate challenge which she met head on with grace and professionalism. My personality is one that likes everything organized months before and Sarah did well with assuring me that all would fall into place, and it really was the "Italian" way. She was absolutely right!
At one point during the wedding day, one of the guests turned to me and asked if it was going to be ok that we were late for dinner. I just responded "Don't worry, Sarah will have it handled"
The sign of a good coordinator is that you aren't aware of all the hoops they are jumping through on your behalf and it wasn't until after the wedding that I realized just how many hours Sarah and Daniela spent on the phone, emailing and talking to vendors regarding our wedding. It was very much appreciated. We also had the absolute pleasure of meeting the owner Adriana when we arrived in Rome and were absolutely delighted when she said "yes" to our invitation to join us for dinner. It was a pleasure to work with you and our wedding would not have been as special had you not been involved. You were amazing! Thank you for everything!!
Carrie & Joe - Spring 2016
First of all i want to thank Sarah and her team for helping me out. It's a long journey to Rome for me and my family but Sarah and her collague helped me out until we finished the event. Weddings in Rome were professional and easy to contact. We contacted them 6 months before the wedding and we were accompanied by them to the venue. After countless emails back and forth helping me with every details that i want for the wedding they make it doable.
I'm from Indonesia but hiring Weddings in Rome, Rome doesn't seem that far :). They took care of my papers that was needed for the wedding and also the papers after the wedding. I'm really satisfied with their service.
Tri & Rae - Winter 2016
A brief background story: I learned from living in Rome many years ago that Rome is a city that still operates on personal contacts. For that reason, I knew that, among the myriad of choices for wedding planners, we needed someone Italian, based in Rome, and with a proven history of success.
Once we arrived in Rome last December a few days before the wedding, we went straight from the airport to our wedding venue and met Sarah and finalized the remaining decisions. After that one short meeting, we literally had nothing else to do but spend time hanging out around Rome with friends and family--unheard of. We were drinking wine and going to the opera and eating and partying with friends--two days before the wedding. Her incredible attention to detail and trustworthiness paid huge dividends for us.
Once the wedding day arrived, everything went perfectly. She did such a great job that I felt compelled, at my wedding dinner, to give a speech thanking her in front of all of our family and friends. What started as a business relationship ended as a friendship. She attended our rehearsal dinner, and we have made clear that her and her husband have an open invitation to stay with us in Washington, DC.
In conclusion, if you're a foreigner considering getting married in Rome, you would be remiss in not choosing Sarah. She brings amazing value, responsiveness, and flawless execution that allows you to actually have fun planning and participating in your own wedding--which apparently is almost unheard of these days. Rome is a daunting city, known for its chaos. Having Sarah brought enough order to that beautiful chaos that we all had a great time, including the bride and groom, and wish we could do it again!
I am willing to speak by phone or email to anyone interested in hearing more about Sarah and her services. Please contact WeddingsinRome and they can put you in touch with me.

Julie and Rod - Fall 2015
Planning a wedding in Rome is not an easy feat. It's important to have a team of local professionals to help you along the way (not just for the actual day of the wedding). This city isn't the highest ranking in customer service and things aren't very "efficient" - so hiring the right team is so important. The entire staff at Weddings in Rome made us feel like we were one of the family. I interviewed a lot of wedding planners in Rome, but for me, there was just something about Sarah that made me feel in my gut that she was the right one. My first impression was that she was capable, experienced and honest - and a really good person. Someone I would want on my team. Thankfully, my gut was 100% right. She was amazing. The only thing that didn't go PERFECT with the wedding was the weather, but she seamlessly handled all the changes that came along with that too.
I had the most amazing, beautiful wedding in Rome, and it's largely to do with Sarah and her team. She speaks perfect British English, but she's Italian. She understands American culture and Italian culture. This is SOOO important. She could speak with vendors and all of my guests with ease. She could communicate clearly and professional in either language. My husband is Italian-- so she could speak to BOTH of us in our native language - putting us at ease and ensuring there was clear communication by phone or email.
Not only was she extremely professional, kind and knowledgeable - but her recommendations for Giuseppe to do the ceremony (he is a remarkable person), the string quartet (spectacular!! mind-blowing!), and the venue (an absolute dream!) really MADE our wedding - a real fairytale. She might be the hardest working person in Rome - because despite her services being in high demand, she was very available to visiting venues, meeting with vendors, researching my requests, etc. She negotiated on my behalf for absolutely everything. (In fact, with all the money she saved me, in the end, she paid for herself more than once over.) I was a pretty demanding bride, and never once did I have a complaint about Sarah. She responded quickly to hundreds of questions and requests, and she never once made me feel like I wasn't her MOST IMPORTANT client. smile emoticon She helped me for the entire process and then also during the entire ceremony/reception (bringing an assistant along to help).
Not only did Sarah do an incredible job, she went above and beyond. The day of my wedding, it was very important that a food/snack truck moved out of the way of our ceremony for pictures. The venue told me that it would be impossible to get them to move. However, Sarah accomplished the impossible. Even though Sarah had a wedding the night before, she crawled out of bed before sunrise and was available to do everything it took (i.e. persuading, negotiating, bribing for HOURS) to get the food truck moved. INCREDIBLE. It would have been such a sore sight to see that truck in all my pictures, so I'm so thankful to her. Let's not forget that was just the start of her day- she stayed to setup until the wedding and reception was completely over. Helping with every tiny detail. (Even my double dress change when my maid of honor was no where to be found!) She's a saint, really.
Even after the wedding was long over and we had paid her fee, she was STILL working to help us with vendors ensuring that there was no confusion with payment and that we were completely satisfied. She still responded to every text, every email and every call quickly and professionally. This is huge and says a lot about her integrity.
I really can't say enough good things about her. Not only did I meet an amazing, detail-oriented wedding planner during this process, but I made an incredible friend too. Thank you Sarah for everything you did to make our wedding absolutely perfect. I have so many awesome memories from the entire process and the beautiful day. You can use me as a reference anytime. I'd love to sing your praises to whoever will listen.

After making the decision to Elope in Rome, we really had no idea where to start. Weddings in Rome by RAYS was recommended to us by our wedding officiants, and they were fantastic. I dealt with Sarah and she was a gem, arranging our venue, music, and having the most perfect bouquet made for me! She made reservations for us at a wonderful restaurant for our dinner the night of our ceremony.
Sarah was extremely responsive, and I think she must not sleep because I never had to wait for a reply even with our six hour time difference! It's a very hard decision to choose to get married in a place where you don't know anyone, but Sarah made us feel like we had friends in Rome and helped make our special day absolutely perfect.
On the day of the wedding, she came to our apartment with the bouquet and was so sweet and helpful, even running a new razor to my husband when he blew up his electric razor when he forgot to use the converter smile emoticon She went to the venue ahead of us to make sure that everything was in place and we couldn't have been happier with the location. The day was gorgeous and the views were stunning.
I would highly recommend Weddings in Rome by RAYS!
Stacia & Jeremy - Fall 2015
From the US
After 3 years of trying to plan a traditional wedding and juggling everyone’s opinions, we decided to throw in the towel and just Elope to Rome.
We made the decision not knowing how we were going to pull it off and through Facebook and trusted google found a few wedding planners who could assist us. Weddings in Rome by RAYS not only had the quickest response times but were the most competitive.
When trying to plan a wedding from across the globe (South Africa in our case) I can’t stress how comforting it is to have your many e-mails answered with speed.
Sarah arranged everything as we requested, from the makeup and hair ladies who were such a hoot! We had lots of giggles while getting ready, to our photographer ( Pietro) and Videographer( Urielle) who did such and amazing job capturing the special moments throughout the day, can’t stop gushing over how well everything came together. We felt like celebrities with our own entourage of paparazzi!.
She even went the extra mile to find my Protea king flower for my bouquet (our home country’s national flower, so we could have a bit of home represented in our day) .The flower was quite hard to find! But she came through!
Sarah and her team made sure we had a perfect and stress free day, which were our top priorities.
I would recommend Weddings in Rome by RAYS everyday all day!
Thank you for giving us a day we will remember forever!

What an amazing group of ladies! From our first point of contact, to wishing us luck upon leaving the church on the wedding day, we could not have asked for anything more. Always happy to help, offering every service needed, and willing to go that extra step to make sure our day was perfect. I would highly recommend Weddings In Rome to anybody looking to make their day even more special. I cannot thank you ladies enough for your help.

I can tell you without hesitation, that the entire experience exceeded our expectations without question. Very professional, very romantic, everyone and everything as planned.

Adriana and Sarah were great! They took care of everything: helping us get all our documents together, translating them into Italian, helping us choose our venue and a hairstylist, as well a getting Megan European compliant hair styling appliances :-)
The U.S. embassy was impressed we had our our documents in order. Weddings in Rome is actually on their list of recommended wedding planners.
Our special day went smoothly and our driver took us all over Rome for our photographer to take pictures of us.
We would recommend Weddings in Rome for anyone wanting a wonderful experience.

I highly recommend Weddings in Rome by RAYS. Sarah and her team made the whole experience flawless and enjoyable for us. My husband and I only made plans 2 months before to get married in Rome (coming from the US), and Sarah managed to find a beautiful wedding venue. She also arranged a wonderful photographer (Gianni) and hair/makeup artist (Annemette).We have her to thank for a fun and memorable wedding!

I have to say that our wedding day was truly everything I have ever dreamed of as a little girl. The one word that sums it all up is MAGICAL...We'll never forget it! Sarah and Weddings in Rome were amazing, and we felt like Sarah completely understood our vision and helped us to execute the style and quality that we hoped for in every detail. As a bride planning a wedding from abroad, I was relaxed the whole way through, knowing that Sarah was handling things. If you're planning a wedding in Rome, there's no doubt that these are the people to make your dreams come true!!! Nicole
Sarah and Adriana, you made our dream come true. We couldn't have done without your professionalism, expertise, and experience. Our wedding was literally a "Fairy Tale". We will never forget it. As native Roman living overseas celebrating our love with my wife in Rome was priceless. Thank you !!!! Pietro

Sarah and Adriana were fabulous in helping us have a very special day. I had the perfect quiet, romantic wedding with my little family in attendance. My contact with both Sarah and Adriana was always efficient and informative and they made the whole process easy. Thank you for all your help.

We recently celebrated our wedding in Rome with the help of Sarah and Adriana of Weddings in Rome by RAYS. Our experience start to finish was seamless, personal and incrediblyhelpful. We were a very small wedding yet they made us feel like all of our questions and requests were important. We contacted several wedding planners in Rome at first and were very impressed by the detailed and personal response we received from Sarah. She answered all of our questions and provided options/solutions. It was really important that we felt comfortable with our planner, especially as were doing everythingfrom a distance. Sarah was true to her word every step of the way. She really listened to what was important to us and then offered suggestions. We really valued her detailed explanations and descriptions of the venues, photographers, car service, make-up artist, flowers and ceremony...everything! We really appreciated the personal touches – Adriana accompanied us to the Canadian Embassy to sort out our paper work and she made the experience feel like a fun outing rather than a process. Afterwards, we all had breakfast together and Sarah and Adriana gave us a few insider tips on what to do in the city. The actual wedding day was so relaxed and smooth. Sarah and Adriana have a way of making you feel taken care of – they are both so nurturing and warm. We are so happy that we were able to work with them and would recommend their service.

We recently celebrated our wedding in Rome with the help of Sarah and Adriana from Weddings in Rome. My husband and I fell in love with Rome when we got engaged there a couple of years ago, so it seemed like the perfect choice to get married there. There are several companies that we found that organised weddings in Rome, but it was important to us that we dealt with a wedding planner based in Rome who knew the city like the back of their hand and had the best contacts. From the moment I spoke to Sarah, I knew that our wedding was in safe hands. Sarah seemed to know exactly the kind of wedding we wanted, and was able to offer us the perfect venue for the ceremony and a fabulous restaurant for the wedding breakfast afterwards. Sarah is incredibly efficient, she listened carefully to what we wanted and always responded quickly with the perfect solution. Organising our wedding really could not have been easier.
We were blown away by the personal service we received on our wedding day. Sarah and Adriana were amazing, and made sure everything went to plan. We felt incredibly looked after by Sarah, Adriana and our lovely photographer. The staff at the restaurant were attentive, yet relaxed and informal. They were wonderful with the children and I would never have believed that children could have sat down at a table for so long!
Thank you Sarah and Adrianna for helping to make our wedding day such a wonderful, special day for us, it was everything we imagined and so much more! Rome is the perfect setting for a wedding, and Sarah and Adriana from Weddings in Rome are the people to organise it. Louise and Jason x

Dear Sarah and Adriana, we just wanted to say thank you for all your help in making our day more amazing than we ever thought possible. Everything was perfect from start to finish, from the amazing venue to the music to the little details like the vespa favours! All our guests loved the wedding and your additional information on restaurants and places to go in Rome was very much appreciated, we brought both our families to one of the restaurants you recommended in Trastevere before they returned to Ireland and it was amazing from the food to live musicians that played traditional Italian music right at our table for us. Thank you again for everything!
Dara & Trisha - Spring 2014
Sarah has helped me plan the wedding day I always wanted. Right from the very beginning and our first conversation I was put at ease my her knowledge, genuinity and suggestions on how to achieve the wedding I wanted, being based in Ireland was a little daunting to arrange a wedding in rome but Sarah spt a whole weekend with me visiting hotels and venues until I was sure I had the right place. Then came the extras, flowers, cars, music, wine. Lots of suggestions and advice made my choices easier to make. At all stages of planning the wedding Sarah was by my side. Either on Skype or email and attending and helped negotiate with lots of suppliers to get the very best deals. I will always be grateful to her for all she did for mark and I and her help on the day itself. Any bride living outside rome can safely put herself in the expert experienced hands of Sarah, Andrea and their team. Lindsay and Mark, 3 October 2014, Roma x

Thank you Sarah and Adriana for making a fairy tale wedding come true.
The officiant, florist, photographers, videographer, hairdresser, make-up artist, trio and DJ that you suggested were all awesome.
Being from Toronto, Canada, having you on the ground in Rome working out the details on our behalf was a tremendous help.
Sarah, the day went seamless thanks to your great coordination.
Thanks again for everything!

Dear Sarah! When we look back, at the Rome adventure we can honestly say that we wouldn't want to change anything, even if we could have! Many, many thanks for the superb arrangements! Done with knowledge and experience, great flexibility and extra feeling. Gianni was a treasure too; very professional and at the same so inspiring and friendly. And he created splendid pictures; quite in a tradition of the best Italian painters, that have enriched the formidable city!

Sarah, you and your team did a fabulous job with our intimate wedding. It was far more than I dreamed it would be. You picked the perfect location with a Palace in the middle of town. From the pre-planning, your attention to detail, to the on-site support and the actual ceremony and photos. Your photographer was second to none! He was so gracious and went out of his way to capture every moment perfectly. Thank you for a magical wedding day! Far more than I ever expected it would be! I would recommend you to anyone.

Sarah and Adriana did a remarkable job in planning our wedding at Church Ara Coeli. Sarah was easy to deal with and always responded promptly to all of my questions. She did extensive research that went beyond our expectations. She takes matters seriously and takes your needs to heart providing considerable assistance. We were concerned with the logistics since our wedding was large and most of our Polish and Turkish guests didn’t speak English or Italian. Sarah and Adriana assisted us with everything and it was a relief that they arranged our wedding. We highly recommend them! Thank you,
Arda & Anna - Spring 2013
We are so grateful for all the work you did that created a special and memorable day for me and Patrik! You arranged everything exactly as we wanted it in the best way. It could not be more perfect. The officiant Mrs. Jansen, the hairdresser Anne, the driver, my beautiful bouquet and last but not least the best photographer in the world Gianni! So once again thank you for everything and we will always recommend you because you are the best!!! xxx

Natalia & Sergey - Fall 2012
I found Sarah and Adriana online whilst living in England. My parents and rest of my wedding party live in California. In spite of the distance, Weddings In Rome was able to give me the wedding of my dreams. Nothing was too big or too small - every detail and concern of mine was addressed without any hesitation! Additionally, they never take on too many clients so I was able to have all the attention that I wanted - I could not have felt anymore special. Price was never a concern as they were able to find me the best florist, desserts, music, etc. They gave me quotations much less than my budget permitted and negotiated on my behalf! They made the process of planning a wedding fun and easy. On my actual wedding day, my family, friends and myself did nothing but sit back and enjoy the special day! Every single one of my guests had nothing but positive words - mainly stating that it is the best wedding they had every attended! I truly am lucky to have found Weddings in Rome. Look no further!
