Michigan Photographer meets Italy Wedding Planner

A Proposal

Ray & Beth | Italy | Livio Lacurre

Ray & Beth | Italy | Livio Lacurre

How cool is it when you comment on a friend’s Facebook post and it starts something!  Well its just happened to me.

I love seeing how some of our brides and grooms are getting along –  Ray & Beth are such a couple.  I was so fortunate to have been recommended to them as their Italy wedding planner by the super Livio Lacurre Photographer.   Livio was chosen by Ray – who also happens to be a very talented wedding photographer – to photograph his and Beth’s  own wedding in Castellabate, Italy in 2014.  Since then we have been Facebook friends – I have seen Ray and Beth move from West Coast to East Coast USA, grow their photography business – Beth is known for her love of Swarovski crystals and bedazzled her very unique Motor City Selfie Photobooth – which has become very successful, and on top of all this they have expanded the Iavasile home with two cats and one dog.

Tonight Ray’s latest post was to inform their clients – past and future –  that they have added a fab new service; a private screening of wedding highlights in the Ray Anthony Iavasile showroom.

An invitation for couples and their families – who will be seated and treated to a highlight slideshow in movie theater-style of their beautiful wedding, projected on to the wall of their modern showroom.  I think this is going to be a hugely successful part of their photography service.  A private screening in a very relaxed and informal environment with “wine and cheese” organised by Beth – now that is some serious customer service.

Well it sounded so good – I had to drop them a quick reply to say ” I wish I could make one of those screenings” – you see I am based in the UK and Ray and Beth are in Michigan, USA.   A few minutes later I get a response to say

Jo: here’s a proposal: book us a wedding to photograph in Italy, and we will fly you to Michigan for a screening

Those of you who may not know me…..I am completely driven by a challenge 🙂

Italy brides & grooms if you like the idea of a completely international team coming together on your Italy wedding well just get in touch as we can make it happen for you!

Actually it does not have to be a wedding..why not proposal or vow renewal or the most amazing destination couple shoot. To see Ray’s storytelling visit him on Ray Anthony Weddings
