Weddings, Women, and Wine Under The Tuscan Sun
ORLANDO, Fla. – October 28, 2010 – In May of 2008, event planner and marketing guru Tara Fontana took her first trip to Tuscany. After eight days of soaking up the art, culture, food, and wine, quite literally the wine, she knew this was a place that she would one day return. In November of 2009 she embarked on her second trip to give birth to a book; but instead she gave birth to a wedding business, Weddings Under The Tuscan Sun.
With nearly two decades of success in various areas of the luxury goods industry, Fontana’s prestigious resume reads like the pages of Vogue. A former marketing representative for some of the world’s most recognizable luxury brands such as Calvin Klein, Escada, and Neiman Marcus, Fontana has also worked with jewelry legend Laura Munder on national marketing and public relations campaigns.
Seeking to personalize her craft, Fontana launched Grapevine Public Relations Inc., a boutique company focused on creativity, customer service, branding campaigns, strategic marketing plans and special event concepts to both local and national clients.
After years of success in the public relations field, Fontana grew anxious to start a new business venture that brought her back to her roots. Her father and grandparents were born in Naples and the Italian culture is part of her blood. Visiting the country brought back happy childhood memories; the sing songy language rang like music to her ears, along with the strong traditions, comforting food, and passionate people.
And so, Fontana’s ambitious endeavor to bring her innovative imagination to traditional Italian weddings began. Over the past year she has traveled back and forth to Tuscany for weeks at a time selecting a team of talented artists to create a timeless Tuscan wedding customized to the bride and grooms personality, tastes, needs and desires. In September 2010 Weddings Under The Tuscan Sun was officially born.
Owned and operated in the United States along with a satellite office in Florence, Weddings Under The Tuscan Sun has developed strong partnerships with each of their Italy-based vendors, sharing the same vision, standard, and quality of work. From Medieval churches lined by cypress trees with views only captured in frescos, to a Franciscan chapel surrounded by the sounds of roaring water. A majestic castle nestled away in the forest to the garden of a 300-year-old villa. Weddings Under The Tuscan Sun provides a variety of options for the picture-perfect wedding that will create memories to fill a couple’s heart forever.
During one of the many trips to Tuscany Fontana and colleague Angelique Allen gave birth to a sibling of the wedding business, Girls Fun Under The Tuscan Sun.
