Let's celebrate together the joy of the happy couple

It is a real team effort, everbody having their role with the aim of achieving something memorable for the loving couple
Let's celebrate together the joy of the happy couple
Here at Hotel la Perla we see the whole wedding arrangement as an individual event to prepare for as a tailor would in preparing a suit.
We certainly enjoy seeing the joy of the bride and bridegroom. It is that type of joy rare to see, super radiant smiles on the day of all days. We have seen those smiles quite a few times but we staff never tire of the weddings here, for there is such a contagious feel about all. And long may it last, celebration after celebration. Here at Hotel la Perla we see the whole wedding arrangement as an individual event to prepare for as a tailor would in preparing a suit. Whether it be summer or winter, the ceremony held in our hotel garden or the nearby golf course, we look to assure that the experience will live long in the minds and hearts of both the happy couple and the lucky guests. And magic is in the air in winter too when on leaving the church mulled wine is ready to cheer one and all. When folk ask me why I so much enjoy organising the weddings I always reply that the thrill and emotions involved make me happy and I too look forward to that day when I utter the famous words! Such feeling gives me the energy and desire to make the day for each and every couple a day of a liftetime. And then there is the fact that it is always another opportunity to be part of a dedicated team which work with enthusiasm to achieve the declared aim of complete satisfaction. For me the expression of sincere hospitality is summed up by the Costa family themselves. La Perla is always a welcoming home where cordiality, grace and simple straightforward friendship are always to the fore. Add to this the kindly smiles which are as natural as can be and the recipe is a convincing one indeed. I remember one instance well – the couple, regular guests then as they are now – having in fact become true friends – were really surprised when Ernesto and Anny arrived at the Corvara golf club in a 1937 Lancia Aprilia to toast them. To mention in this context is of course Manuel, he taking care of choice of hotel restaurant and aperitif moment. No stone is left unturned and even matters such as choice of card for the menu and printing of are taken care of. Nobody would deny that the chef is a vital cog in the wedding day wheel and Nicola rises to the occasion without fail. He has the gift to interpret the wishes and fantasies of the guests and respond to or define a theme which is to be carried through the entire culinary presentation. And as for the wedding cake itself, words defeat me, the elaboration and taste a joy to behold. Who says the cake must be sweet? Nicola is capable of surprising those gathered with a delicious cheese surprise. Do not worry for I do not forget the choice of wine. Paolo is the man – our house sommelier. One thing is constant in Paolo’s mind, and that is that any wine must have a distinctive identity and marry well with the dish in question, and whisper it quietly but Paolo also looks to wed the wine to the profile of the guests present. And let me mention Stefan, a wizzard of decorative creation, he ably asssited by Signora Costa. It is a precious gift indeed to be able to astound with flower arrangements and table decor. Weddings can also have that tense element about them, especially as the clock counts down to the day and the moment. This is where our Spa comes onto play and massages and treatments not only give relaxation and calm but produce that essential vitality desired for the occasion. One can also imagine that tips on make-up and style are never lacking. And then there is myself! I am the first point of contact for the spouses to be. I guess my role is of a guiding type, assisting in planning from the first moment and discussing and responding to requirements. There are also the organisational aspects which are not so immediately obvious – airport and train connections and transfers, room planning and allocation for guests, photographic services, and even video coverage so as to ensure that every moment is captured. Sometimes we add a ride in our Dolomiti Express vehicle or a ride by horse-pulled sledge. And that is about all! A discreet but comprehensive service to do all possible to make the dream day a reality which will live on long in time.
