 we got married last year in the charming Cortona avoiding all the traffic and stress of the big cities, having around us the traditional tuscan atmosphere.
We do recommend Cortona Events as they made our day, they took care of every detail, being there for us all the time!

thank you again

thanks a million
 I wish I could put a million stars! My husband and I dreamt of a perfect Tuscan wedding and Cortona Events brought it to life and surpassed our expectations. After choosing a wedding venue and meeting with another planner who priced our wedding as if we were George Clooney, my husband and I were extremely discouraged and wondered how we were ever going to organize our Italian wedding all the way from San Diego. A yelp review from a bride with a similar story caught my eye singing the praises of Cortona Events and we did not hesitate to contact them immediately. BEST DECISION WE EVER MADE. We worked with Glenda and immediately fell in love. She took our anxiety away from planning a destination wedding in a Tuscan town and venue we hadn’t seen in person and in a country I had never even been too. She was incredibly helpful, smart, knowledgeable, sweet, understanding, kind, and an amazing advocate for us and our budget! She was extremely professional and always available to answer any questions or provide suggestions along the way. 

Glenda is an expert at what she does and truly cares about her clients. I HIGHLY recommend Cortona Events to help make any wedding an unforgettable and beautiful event!

Hi tkin, congrats on the wedding and your choice on doing it in italy. I just got married in umbria (2 weeks this thursday) and it was absolutely beautiful. […] Our wedding planner found the spot. she was wonderful, very flexible on everything. They specialize on not doing typical package style weddings and will create something to your wishes. the company is Cortona Events, and is run by two women: Glenda Furia and Stefania Svetti, both were born and raised in Tuscany and speak English. Here's the website: I'm sure they can help you find a church nearby as well. Also, not sure if it's so with catholic weddings, but apparently every Italian must also do a civil service at the local town hall. We had ours at Castiglion Fiorentino, again a suggestion from our wedding planner. It's an absolutely gorgeous undiscovered gem of a Tuscan hill town, […]. They do a wonderful traditional ceremony complete with a beautiful Italian certificate, a scroll and a traditional ceramic seal of the city, which they present to you as a gift. [...]

Both were born and raised in Tuscany and have collected a competent list of vendors with whom they work, including well-regarded agriturismos. Eternally optimistic with an aunflappable any-thing-is-possible attitude, the duo also provides assistance on tours and activities, which they can negotiate discounts on, and sometimes even honeymoon planning [...]".  Anne H.

We have been going non-stop since arriving back from beautiful Italy. We just had our big party for family and friends on Saturday night and still have family visiting from other areas. I wore my wedding dress again and John wore his suit. We had a big screen TV with a slide show of all of the photos. We are absolutely thrilled with the photos. I can’t remember the photographer’s name but please pass on our sincere thanks. Everyone at our party commented on how beautiful they were.
Both John and I were so happy with everything. Cortona will be our destination place for anniversary trips.
You and Stefania were brilliant with your help.
