AWN: “Every couple loves destination weddings for sure. What kind of couple do you love to work with the most?” 

JA: “Honestly, my favourite type of client is the busy Professional Bride. She tells me her vision and she trusts me with every detail to reflect her style and personality, and she shows up on her wedding day with all the confidence in the world. Her wedding is usually super fun and filled with incredible lasting memories.”

AWN: “Yes, it gives you a lot of room for creativity for sure. How do you make sure each wedding planned for each couple is different from other couples?” 

JA: “It takes a great team to put together a wedding. Having said this, each bride has a personality that radiates through our first meeting. Each groom has a vision of his wedding. It is my pleasure to sit with both, understand their wishes, and walk them through every detail based on my personal inspirational library to ensure they are truly happy with the result. I listen to their story, and my team of creatives work their magic to give their wedding the touch of their own unique story. I like to mark a big difference in their wedding event with every little detail while remaining true to their love story.”

AWN: “What’s the best things couples have said about working with you? Do you keep in touch with them after the wedding?”

JA: “There hardly are any customers that do not stay in touch with me and Just Amore after their weddings. I  cherish every single couple I have worked with and that is part of our company’s values. We develop more than just a client relationship with our customers, we treat them like family and receive the same love in return. They keep me updated with main events that happen in their life. We had one couple, Bianca & Hazim, who said they had doubts about wedding planners at first but Just Amore totally changed their perspective. And another couple, Sara & Shahin, said they chose us because they felt comfortable with us and we were someone who they could trust. They all knew that from day one, we are on top of everything.”

AWN: “Can you tell us a little bit about yourself personally? What is your background as a wedding planner? Why weddings and how long have you been planning weddings for?”

JA: “More than 5 years! It all started with me planning a close relative’s wedding in Rome. What started off as an offer to help a relative turned out to be the spark that was needed to light my way towards a passion, I never knew I had. Since then, I never looked back. I always believed that weddings represent a meaningful expression of two persons joining their lives forever. Seeing couples happy is something I enjoy more than anything in life.”
