Destination Weddings . . .

in France, Italy and Spain

This has been a dream of mine for quite some time. I’ve traveled around France, Italy and Spain extensively and studied the wine and food of the various regions. It’s a natural fit to combine my three loves ─ food, wine and travel ─ and share these passions with others. More people are looking for unique weddings that give them an opportunity to experience daily life in another country. My destination weddings are so much more special than a typical hometown wedding! Contact me to start planning your dream destination wedding. With all best wishes, Chef John
