Massimiliano “Massi” Russo

General Manager

I am the founder of the company, and I have been planning Weddings since 2005. I am proud to say that after having helped over 500 beautiful couples, there is very little that I have not seen, and this is why I want every wedding to be as personalized as possible. My experience has grown in the years, and I now create with the help of my team only unique events. I do not believe in set packages, but I prefer to define every single detail according to what our couples want and wish. I want to see and feel the happiness that such an important day deserves. It is the Bride’s and groom’s joy that is the most important factor in each wedding.

I started my carrer in the food and beverage industry over 20 years ago, while still studing in school, and I realized that it was the path for me. I had a quick career thanks to my passion and devotion to the job, and became a Maitre, a Sommelier and I managed restaurants in some of the most beautiful cities in the world, such as Miami, London, Milan, Auckland and more.

One day I decided that I had seen enough of the beauties of the world, and that I wanted to work close to my family. That is why I came back to Italy and started my career as a Wedding planner.

In the past few years, with the experience created, I have decided to take this opportunity to the next level, and I have started to define much more what my couples wanted. Now I am proud to say that we do not really plan weddings (even if we are always wedding planners), but we create a Wedding, and we are able to make dreams come true. This possibility comes also from the long partnerships that we created with Vendors throughout Italy, and without whom we would not be able to accomplish so much for our Brides and Grooms.

Lucia “Lucy”

General Supervisor

Lucy is both Italian and Asian, and this beautiful mix allows her to know many foreign traditions in her Weddings…from the smallest details to the most important aspects for Asian couples, she perfectly knows it!

Her school experience in Milan, Bergamo and Venice give her a very complete background, and her college degree in languages surely help her understand in detail evereything her couples require.

She starts her carrer in planning and creating corporate events for both inoming and outgoing in Italy. Her experience is formed by managing large groups from the leading pharmaceutical companies and Banks for Italy and China.

After a few years, with her wide knowledge, she decides to move towards a more creative and personal type of planning, and that is when she starts working with Europewedding as a Wedding planner for Italy. Her style is definitely elegant and creative, picking hints from the classic white weddings, but also incorporating a more vibrant and fresh note.

She is very determined and precise, and given such important factors, her Weddings never leave any aspect unseen.

She is definitely the planner for any couple that wants a detail perfect Wedding! Lucy is also the first Italian wedding designer to receive the title of “Preston Bailey protegé”. She completed such high level masterclass to add this unique experience to the Weddings she creates, but also in collaboration with the other Wedding planners of our team, to assure that decors and flowers play the important role that they deserve to give an unique touch to each event.
