“Che dire…. abbiamo avuto la fortuna di dare in mano il nostro giorno più importante ad Olivia ed il suo staff. Olivia è una grande professionista e tra i tantissimi pregi che ha nel suo modo di gestire la sua attività spicca la sua grande umanità, gentilezza e soprattutto riesce sempre a darti quella sicurezza di cui una coppia ha bisogno nell’affrontare l’organizzazione del proprio matrimonio . Olivia e il suo team sono riuscite ad entrare nelle nostre menti e nei nostri cuori e capire esattamente quello che avremmo voluto per noi ed i nostri ospiti, sempre rispettando il budget da noi stimato. È sempre stata disponibile ad ascoltare ogni nostro dubbio o desiderio, sempre presente, ci emoziona ripensare all’anno trascorso insieme a costruire il nostro magico giorno. Meglio di così non potevamo immaginarlo. Grazie ancora, con il cuore grazie. Consigliamo Olivia ad ogni coppia che sta per organizzare il proprio matrimonio. È magnifica!!!!!!♥️”

‘From the very first time we spoke with Olivia Sodi, we immediately knew that she was the right planner for us. We had researched many Italian based wedding planners and Olivia was by far the most professional, friendly, creative, enthusiastic and sincere planner.
We loved spending time with Olivia discovering, inspecting and selecting the venue for our wedding. Throughout the whole process Olivia and her team were guiding hands who coordinated everything from the venue, the catering, photography, church and civil paperwork, lighting, music and everything else you can imagine.Everything went perfectly without any problems or stress. This was the most important day of our life and Olivia made it so magical that we will never forget it (or her)!
We cannot recommend Olivia highly enough for planning any type of wedding or event no matter how big or small. She is simply the best!!!!’

From the moment I first met Olivia, I knew she was the perfect person to help us plan our wedding. Her warmth and passion for what she does shines through immediately and from day 1 it was clear that we were in safe hands with her organisation skills and impeccable taste & style.
By the time the big day arrived, Olivia felt like an old friend. On the day of our wedding, both Olivia and Sveva were an absolute godsend- making sure every detail was perfect and running around sorting things behind the scenes, keeping me calm and relaxed and always on hand anticipating what I might need (whether it be a lipstick top-up or a large Aperol Spritz!).
I couldn’t have done it without Olivia & her team and I am forever grateful to have found her!”

We discovered Olivia on Instagram and from the first message, we knew we’d love working with her. We could not have been happier with our choice. Our dream wedding came true thanks to her hard work, attention to detail and incredible service. Olivia helped us plan a 4-day wedding for 100 people. We live in New York and it was so important for us to have a planner that would have time for us, her own style and connections in the region.
It was always exciting to see which unique ideas she would share with us. Olivia is also very creative and is on top of what styles and designs are on trend for the season. Her creative mindset took our wedding to the next level and it was more special than we could have ever imagined.
It was a fairytale. Not only did we find a great wedding planner, but we also found a great friend!

“We were planning our wedding from abroad and had looked for a wedding planner to help us plan our dream wedding in Tuscany. Instantly, we clicked with Olivia and knew she was the one. She was friendly, responsive, understood what we were looking for, and had great ideas.
She quickly grasped the vibe and atmosphere we were going for and made that happen—but also wasn’t afraid to suggest great ideas of her own to make it even better.
It was a fairytale wedding on the Tuscan countryside, with 160 of our closest friends and family from around the world.
Logistics were smooth, the set-up was flawless, and our “plan B” due to the rain ended up being even better than our “plan A”! We couldn’t have asked for more.
Isola d’Elba 14.04.2018
Olivia and her team were wonderful to work with. My wedding was on Elba island in the Tuscany region of Italy. I live in the United States and she is in Florence so we were only able to communicate via email and skype which can make things very difficult when planning a wedding, especially because of the different time zones. From the beginning, she made me feel very comfortable hiring her without having a face to face meeting. She came off as professional and experienced but not pushy which I liked.
She helped me create my vision with patience and hard work. Olivia has great taste and made wise recommendations that I am glad I followed. She was very honest and open about vendors and pricing.
When I finally met her, it felt like I was embracing an old friend. She went above and beyond my vision and made my dream wedding come true. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.
Olivia has an amazing eye for detail coupled with hard work and undeniable talent. No request was too big or too small. She listened to all of ideas and our vision for they day, then added so many little touches and ideas to our plans that made HUGE differences.
On the wedding day, there is no words to explain our graditude towards Olivia, she took complete control of the vendors, putting the finishing touches around our venue and most importantly for us, took away any worries we could have had on the day and helped make the atmosphere of our wedding relaxed and calm! She was a welcome face the morning of the wedding.
Olivia has been a dream to work with and we were honoured to have her at our wedding, not just as our co-ordinator but as a friend!
Val d’Orcia 06.07.2018
If you’re looking for a wedding planner in italy—and tuscany specifically- olivia is your woman. She is a true artist: creative, resourceful and a terrific communicator.
She has exceptionally good taste, especially if you’re into the romantic vintage look, and easily forges relationships with all sorts of vendors. She is likable, quick on her feet, and can help you prioritize, think– and rethink– about what’s really important to you, especially if you’re on a budget. That’s valuable.
Most importantly, she is always available for her clients.
She was of great emotional support to me. She never lost her temper with my 1000 calls and was always direct and ready to talk things through. Her delightful and professional presence truly calmed me down and made the whole journey fun. I highly recommend her!

Val d’Orcia 30.06.2018
When dreaming up ambitious plans for our wedding weekend in Val D’orcia, we knew that we needed someone special to bring it to life – a person with not only impeccable taste, expert knowledge of Tuscany and a bespoke approach to weddings, but also someone on our wavelength, with positive energy and integrity.
We gave her a seemingly impossible brief, full of big and small details we wanted to be incorporated in our wedding weekend, and she executed every single one of them beautifully. Our wedding was a blend of Russian – Jewish – Italian – Catholic traditions, and it was crucial for us to have personal touches permeate our event.
This global team worked together beautifully, and Olivia made it a seamless experience for us to work with over 12 suppliers.
“Olivia is an amazing wedding planner that really helped take the stress out of our big day and let us enjoy what we can easily say was the best day of our lives. We spoke with a number of planners and Olivia was a breath of fresh air as she immediately understood our aesthetic. Leading up to our wedding she gave us great advice and put out fires that we didn’t know existed. We had rain throughout the day of our wedding, and needed to make some last minute adjustments, including switching to our Plan B dinner setup. Thankfully the rain stopped just before our ceremony and we were able to have it outside as we were hoping for. Throughout this, Olivia was very calm, versatile, and took care of all the little details to ensure we had the best day possible. Looking back, even considering we had to go with our Plan B dinner, we wouldn’t change a single thing, and much of that is thanks to Olivia.”
