Meet the Founder
I am Valentina Kuralaviciute, the owner and chief event coordinator of the Venice Emotions Wedding and Event Planning Agency. Since 2017, I am a member of Italian Wedding Planners Association (AWP) and of International Wedding Federation. I have culturally mixed backgrounds, as I was born in a Russian-Lithuanian family, so I consider myself not simply a professional figure or interlocutor to organize weddings and events but rather a cultural mediator able to help couples understand and synthesize the differences between two cultures, which inevitably exist.
Furthermore, I have been living in Italy for 18 years already and I feel lucky every day to have the opportunity to appreciate the beauties of this wonderful country, its traditions, history, and culture. Moreover, Italy has become my second home. For these and many other reasons, I have decided to run into the path of wedding and event organizer to guide and to support foreign couples, who choose the Bel Paese and Venice in particular, to celebrate their special occasion.
My Take On a Wedding Planner
I got started my professional life on the wedding field with the leading Italian Associazione Wedding Planner (AWP) training school and had taken specialist courses in Wedding and Event Planning. When I got my Master in wedding planning, the further steps have been taken to become a certified Wedding and Event specialist. Though I have always had a particular interest in the wedding art, these overall classes helped me not only to get the profession of my dream but also to deepen my knowledge in this area.
For me, the Wedding Planner is not just a profession but also a passion. I am passionate about every aspect of weddings. It is something that I do with all my heart and soul! Since I am engaged in work of great importance, I always plan my events with great respect to cultural diversity. I always try to create the concept of a personalized wedding or event with my clients, as every story is unique and unrepeatable. Essentially, my goal is to help the bride and the groom have the best wedding experience and memories possible, to create something they will never forget in their lives. I do my best to make the day of your dreams!
As a professional certified organizer and consultant, I take a completely personal approach not only to weddings and ceremonies but also to events of any other kind. Every project I do becomes my Bringing the Fairy Tale To Life campaign!
My passion for wedding and event planning began many years ago when I would dream of stunning dresses and designs and start to be interested in style, fashion, and ultimate trends. My passion for creating grew with time and I finally enrolled in Fashion Designers courses. Immediately, after becoming an Italian fashion school graduate and getting my diploma, I felt that there had been growing calls inside me to nurture and create something that would become a real work of art. When I looked carefully on the most ceremonies held in Italy, I saw a lot of sameness and striking similarity of style. Being full of new ideas, alternatives and approaches, I was attracted to the idea of my own project. This is how my idea of heaven, the Venice Emotions, was born.
I am fiercely proud of my amazing Wedding and Event team. I did a huge work to find the most talented wedding and fashion suppliers worldwide. Each of them is selected due to great professionalism, responsibility, creativity, originality and many other qualities necessary to guarantee the best product to my clients. We are continuously looking for the new sources of inspiration!
