Who else interrupts their regularly-scheduled Instagram scroll whenever a beautiful Italian wedding pops up on their feed? Because it can’t just be us… You know exactly what we’re talking about too, right? Those al fresco or courtyard captures of the reception, with gorgeous twinkling lights, elegant tapers and sprawling garlands stretched out over stunning, mile-long banquet tables with chairs that look like they were heaven-cut for each venue. These weddings are so immaculate that they look unreal, but they’re v. real, especially when they’re planned by Tuscan wedding planner, Olivia Sodi and her team. This woman is a genius, and we can’t say that we’re surprised, because before branding and launching herself, she worked for luxury fashion houses like Gucci and Emilio Pucci (i.e. her aesthetic has always been impressively on-point). So, if you’ve ever considered being THAT couple in your own Italian fairy tale, then you might want to look her up…

We wish we were best friends with Ms. Olivia

We find ourselves imagining Olivia living out Under the Tuscan Sun IRL - even though she was born in Florence - and we definitely envy the couples who get to work with her for their weddings ((nope, no envy actually, they’re just the luckiest!)). She lives in Tuscany between her hometown of Florence and a small country village in the beautiful Val d’Orcia called Trequanda, and she’s totally in love with her region and the rest of her country, because #whocanarguewithitsbeauty?!

After years spent working in fashion, interior design, and styling consultancy for different projects, Olivia segued her passion for pretty-making into a full-time gig and started organizing elegant, imaginative weddings and high-profile private events. While she says it’s been a complete joy for her to work with nuptials-planning neighbors of hers, she really gets excited to orchestrate I Dos for clients abroad, because she gets to show off the wonder and allure of her world. Like a genie, she slips into the personal consultant role and takes care of every single detail, partnering with you every step along the way.

Her weddings are impeccable

Every wedding she plays a part in is uniquely-designed, reflecting the colorful personalities, tastes, and styles of her couples. From conception, through her carefully-chosen vendor partners, to the fulfillment of her celebrants’ OG vow vision, she brings exceptional expertise and edge to the table ((no really, to the actual table, can you handle those tablescapes?!)). And her range of services goes from helping you find your dream venue to designing your event, selecting the right I Do go-tos, helping with the budget, supervising, and coordinating the day itself. All with a 6+ hour time difference.

In six years, she’s assembled an amazing tribe of virtuoso venues and arbiters of party-planning perfection, so when your fete is in its final planning stages, she’s got a killer team to cover all of the aspects. Want or need more? She’s good for that, too 🥂. Salud! 

Now about those weddings… 

Pics are proof of her prowess, but so are the kind words and testimonials of her former brides and grooms. These couples tied the knot with tailor-made magic...

“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….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!!!!” ~ Amy & John

“...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. Throughout the year, Olivia was very responsive and always available for calls, and we quickly trusted her with any decisions that had to be made. Olivia lives in Tuscany and is a true local expert!..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.” ~ Marion & Oystein 

"...we thoroughly enjoyed working with Olivia and her team. Olivia is extremely responsive and always on top of things (and made sure we were too!). 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. Her extensive experience planning weddings allowed her to ensure that everything went smoothly. On top of all of that, she is a great person, and we feel like we walked away with a new friend! It was seriously the best day we could have imagined. It was a fairytale wedding on the Tuscan countryside.” ~ Sarah & Marc
