Wedding at Antica Dogana. The bride’s diary

Story of a wedding at Antica Dogana, in Tuoro on Trasimeno lake, organized and curated by wedding planner Lucia De Ferraris.

A late summer afternoon, at sunset, by Trasimeno lake. This is where our dream come true, in that little ancient village, at the border of Umbria and Tuscany. A dream we followed for some time: maybe since we met, or maybe, more precisely, since the beginning of our romance, that day after day brought us not to resist without each other. Finally, we said “Yes”, a promise that will last forever.

Yes, to us two. Yes to the family we will create together. Yes, like when you proposed.

Wedding at Antica Dogana: the bride's diary

A year passed since that night when I saw you kneeling with that little velvet box in your hand and the most beautiful jewel I had ever received inside. “Will you marry me?” – you asked me – and I remember, as if it was yesterday, the emotion that pervaded me when I answered “Yes”, with my voice trembling for emotion.

After the first days, those I needed to realize that it was really happening, we launched ourselves in planning the wedding. I leafed through magazines, consulted web sites, blogs and I was more and more confused: thousands of ideas in my head, thousands of doubts. But there was something I was sure of: the location where we would set our wedding must be Antica Dogana agritourism. A little piece of heaven on the lake, an agritourism run by a family, where chefs Stefano and Michela welcomed us making us feel at home. Both made available their competence and advices on the menu’s choice. Thanks to their passion for good cooking and the choice of high-quality raw material we could surprise our guests with a menu of meat and fish, a huge and rich aperitif buffet, the following dishes while seated, until the final cake moment that made everyone happy and satisfied.

However, if our wedding day was so perfect, we owe it to Lucia de Ferraris, the wedding planner owner of Sayesamore agency. I will never thank her enough for “taking care of me”, for following every step of that unforgettable day. Lucia was someone I could always turn to, dissolving every doubt of mine and giving me the right suggestions always discretely and professionally. In addition to curating all the table setting, their position, the tableau, the flower arrangements, making the garden of Antica Dogana even more beautiful, the wedding planner helped me and supported me a lot in the choice of the music band, the make-up artist and the hairdresser, the car that waited for me to accompany me at the church, the organization of the guests who stayed at the agritourism.
