I partner with my couples to give them complete peace of mind, while helping them fall in love with their day: a wedding as unique as the love story it celebrates.
My specialty is bringing to life bespoke, extraordinary, slow living experiences that inspire conversation and delight with unexpected, considered detail. For me, it's all about translating the way you live and what you value into the way you celebrate - so you can experience the joy you deserve. I'm here so you can create deeper connections with your loved ones through a heartfelt, elevated wedding experience - holding lifelong memories of SO much more than just a party.
Creating beautiful spaces is key to what I do - no detail spared from the love, joy, and care that I am so proud to pour into my work. But at the heart of it, it's even deeper than that - I want your wedding to feel like home, like THIS is the day that was made for you, where you want to share stories and freeze time. I want to create room for the things that life rushes by: for candle-lit conversations, for dancing even after the music has stopped, for crying and laughing all at once. The magic is all already there: I'm just here to make sure there is time and space for it, and for the things that truly matter.
My name is Valentina, and I'm here for your intentionally intimate weddings, your soulful elopements, and your mindfully designed celebrations. If you're looking to have a personal and authentic day full of light, love, and beauty - if you're a modern, imagination-driven couple wanting to do things a little differently - if you like the idea of combining a sense of adventure with the comfort of meaningful luxuries - I'm your person, and I'll travel with you anywhere in the world you want to go.

shall we go make some memories?
"Making the decision to elope was not the easiest, we felt the weight of familial expectations and were worried about hurting feelings. At the same time, we knew that we wanted to hold an intimate ceremony where we could truly focus on each other, free of distractions. Eloping made the most sense for us because it allowed us to highlight the most cherished parts of our relationship and what marriage meant to us — adventure, romance, unity — in a way that was authentic to us. We were still able to include our friends and family throughout the process, so when our actual wedding day came and it was just the two of us, we still felt the love and support of our loved ones but were able to focus our full attention on one another.
We were excited to plan an elopement but were nervous about bringing someone new into what we envisioned as an intimate ceremony. From even our initial meeting, Valentina’s enthusiastic spirit put us at ease, and we knew we could trust her to help us realize our dream wedding. Just as we had hoped, she used her creativity and professionalism to help us bring together the right team to design a wedding that was sincere to our relationship. What we did not expect was how quickly Valentina became a friend and confidant. She was there to guide us through all of the beautiful and rawly emotional parts of the wedding planning process and was as steadfast in her advice as she was generous with her support. By the time our wedding arrived it truly felt as though we were sharing our special day with an old friend who knew our deepest hearts.
We are endlessly grateful for all of the dedication Valentina showed us during the planning process and on our special day."
