Where to begin with my story.... I met Eileen and Lauren July of 2010. I came down with my Matron of Honor and best friend to look at the venue. Villa was recommended to me by one of my bridesmaids. I loved the idea of everything being all inclusive, you just bring the dress :). Once I got to Villa and met Eileen and Lauren I knew this is where our wedding was going to happen. We got a tour of the whole venue and some insight into who Eileen is. Having meet her only that day I felt I had known her forever. When it was time to go we got hugs from both Eileen and Lauren and it sealed something for me. I came home told my Fiance about the venue and said we have to go see this place, I know it's where the wedding should be. We set up another appointment to come down. This time we brought a couple that was in our wedding party. Once they saw the venue for themselves they all agreed this was our venue. That led us to booking our wedding date! June 22, 2012. Now mind you this is July 2010. We gave ourselves time to save more money also I was in the middle of having my braces on, so of course those had to come off before the wedding. That was an amazing day. We locked a date down and it really established my relationship with Eileen, Lauren and her son David. With all the time I had to plan and prepare for the wedding I always stayed in touch with someone from Villa. They would send me "just checking in" emails. I loved that! Once the wedding date started to approach quickly we began our adventure into meeting with our wedding vendors. I decided since we lived an hour away that we would meet with all Villa's prefered vendors and start there. I loved how each vendor I met with they all knew the other vendor I would be meeting with. It really felt like a team effort. They really love working together and they all adore Eileen. It really made the planning process effortless! Before I knew it all vendors had been booked and everything was decided and planned out. The next thing I know rehearsal has already came and went and the wedding was days away. Since all the work had been done and I was in amazing hands I had no stress or need to worry about a thing! The day of the wedding I was one calm bride. You can ask Angela from Above and Beyond Beauty and my Matron of Honor I was so calm they were a little freaked. I just knew that everything was taken care of and I just had to arrive at the venue and get into my dress. And thats exactly what happened. Everything went off without a hitch!! Lauren was my Day-Of Coordinator and I couldn't have done it without her. She was my rock. Once it was time to line up to walk down the aisle I just had to take a moment to breathe and just soak it all in because they really set the tone for how the whole wedding went. Our wedding was the best experience of my whole life thus far. I can not think of a better place to get married at then Villa de Amore. Eileen feels like apart of my family. I hold a special place in my heart for her. Also we are going to be seeing her this Sunday to have a BBQ with her. I love how she wanted to invite us back down there. There will never be enough words to fully describe how amazing this venue is and how the staff and vendors connected to this place really do an outstanding job. <3
