Hi! I’m ILENIA
Wedding & Event Planner
So Much to Think About. So Little Time. That’s Where I come In.
I’m a person who listens a lot. When I organize an event I like to get in tune with my grooms, to understand their needs and desires and try to offer them the best possible solution.
I’m originally from Reggio Calabria, a city in southern Italy closed to Sicily, but I moved to Florence in love with the natural beauty and Renaissance architecture.
Before starting as a Wedding & Event Planner, I spent seven years of professional shadowing getting closer and closer to the world of private events and weddings.
The passion for the events industry grew in me gradually and my business started as a parallel project to the path in the legal field.
Eventually this path full of challenges, variety and human contact ends up prevailing to become my profession.
To prepare myself better I also undertake a training course in which I learn all the secrets of this profession.
Thus, in 2017 I opened the Massara Events Agency. In these years I made important collaborations.
In 2018 I arrived semifinalist at the Italian Wedding Awards, a prestigious award that recognizes professionalism in the Wedding Industry in Italy.
That Same year I deepened my wine passion through training courses.
