About me


My experience at the service of your Wedding Experience 


After finishing my studies, I worked internationally in marketing and communication.

For about twenty years, I have been organizing events worldwide until I landed in the fabulous world of weddings!


Trained in the US, I founded the wedding planning agency Italian Dream Weddings. Since then, I have had the pleasure to organize small and large weddings, legally binding, religious, and symbolic weddings, weddings of couples coming from near and from far.

Then wedding proposals, anniversaries, vow renewals, wedding experiences.


I operate in the whole country: Tuscany, Venice, Amalfi, Lakes, and all the most amazing places in Italy.


I am passionate about life and love. I am curious and creative, and I tremendously love people.


I am a member of IWF International Women Forum, of InterNations, and of the International Society of Female Professionals.


I have a great passion for photography, theater, art, reading, traveling.
I love good food (a little less cooking, but I am not so bad!) and good wine. I like to go out and share pleasant evenings with friends. I have a beautiful son who has made his way out of Italy.
I speak Italian, English, French, Spanish, and I get along with German.


I am eager to put my creativity, my passion for life and love, my perseverance, and my experience at the service of your dreams.

Carla is the BEST
I have been working with Carla for a year now, planning my Bologna wedding for 2021. She has been the most professional person I have worked with. She also is very sweet, and understanding of all of our wishes. I am very excited to continue to work with her as we prepare for the wedding. Thank you, Carla!

Simply perfection!
Carla and her expertise made our wedding day even better than what I imagined. She really had to take the lead with us because we had no idea what we wanted most of the time, then we would all of the sudden know exactly what we wanted. She was so patient and kind while maintaining perfect professionalism. I felt that she was personally involved as though she was a family member. She paid attention to detail when I thought it didn't matter....but then the wedding day came and she proved her worth. Wow! Brava Carla. Giovanni and I will be forever grateful for your kindness, assistance and patience. Xoxoxo.

Giovanni & Elizabetta, Italy & Texas


Carla did an amazing job coordinating our wedding. She was very responsive from the start and we got on straight away. She went above and beyond supporting me throughout the experience, giving me advice and reminding me about all the details I would have not even thought of if it wasn't for her. She accompanied us on many of our meetings with the vendors, ensuring they went smoothly and helping me ask all the right question. In the end, I considered Carla as a friend and so we asked her to be our Celebrant as well and she did an amazing job at that too and made it extremely special. The day went so so smoothly all thanks to Carla's organisation! I would highly recommend Carla as a wedding planner.

Jon & Nara, UK


Carla was not only kind, knowledgeable punctual, but also very patient! If you're set on having your wedding in Italy, then she is THE one to seek out. She's creative, has great ideas yet listens to your wants/desires. If you're not familiar with Italy, don't worry because she is an expert! Her English is impeccable and she has a great sense of humor (good for us, because we were not an easy couple to manage at times ).
Fertitta, USA


Good morning! What a magnificent and absolutely lovely day it was. Thank you so much for your patience, diligence and kindness.
You helped us create memories that will always evoke such love! Thank you 1000 times!
The photos and videos are lovely.
