The Elements of Design Program in Italy was an unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience thanks to an exceptional planner, Linda Vercillo of Tra Di Noi. Although I was unacquainted with any of the girls on the trip, Linda was encouraging and had a way of making everyone feel welcome and included. With her hard work and planning, we acquired a true feel for the fast-paced environment at fashion shows, which can only be obtained through hands-on experiences. Despite the ever-changing circumstances, Linda was able to adjust the plans accordingly. When our fashion show in Soverato had to be relocated due to weather-related issues, she was able to adapt and put her plan B in place, swiftly and seamlessly. Linda was extremely approachable and offered great recommendations when we asked about where to visit, what to do, and where to eat in the foreign country. She was always ensuring that everyone was enjoying themselves. I would definitely recommend Linda and this program to anyone who is interested.
Thank you so much for providing me with this incredible opportunity!
I haven’t formally thanked you for the experience that I had in Italy. I learned more than I ever could imagine on this trip than I could’ve in a classroom. This experience helped me to broaden my learning experience about the art I am most passionate about, while learning more about myself. You planned the absolute most perfect trip and I had the time of my life. I will never forget this past summer and the friendships I made over the course of the two weeks. Thank you, thank you, thank you for putting your all into this trip! It truly showed and I can speak for all of the girls when I say, we love you! You cared for us like your own children and made this experience comfortable, exciting and memorable. You’re the best Linda!

I experienced the Italy Tra Di Noi trip, run by Linda Vercillo, in the summer of 2016. In my opinion the itinerary was thoroughly thought out and organized. Every day was planned from events, meals, touring, and times for resting. There was also time to explore on our own.
Even though the trip was planned from Toronto the detail and accuracy in everything we had to do was incredible. We were even recommended food to go buy, such as pistachio croissants and a specific honey brand from Calabria. Linda is very familiar with Italy that she was able to accomplish such an amazing experience all from another country.
Our itinerary revolved around fashion centric events and we got to experience working with industry professionals in Rome through Linda’s connections. I personally felt no difference in the fact that the trip was planned in Canada. She thought through every aspect and any hiccups that occurred went unnoticed, since she always seemed to have a back-up or alternative option in mind. It was a trip I will never forget and one of the best I have ever taken. I definitely recommend Linda Vercillo as the event planner for your next event.
Zahirah Quevedo was our 1st place at our Elements of Design ’16 fashion show in Calabria….she’s currently a student at Haute Couture Academy of Fashion, Fine Arts & Design. In May 2017, Zahirah launched her 1st line in Calabria
As a young up and coming designer, there has been certain areas through out my journey that required managing. Linda Vercillo has been nothing short but amazing. She took on the roll as my agent and landed me some amazing life changing opportunities that would further my career. If it weren’t for Linda I would not have been introduced to the south of Italy, Calabria, and know what it has to offer. Calabria is now making a staple in the fashion world and Reggio being deemed a new fashion capital. I had the honours of being part of the second international fashion week in Reggio and have no doubts I could grace their stage next year. Linda V also was awarded a golden muse award. A well deserved award, in my opinion, considering how much support she has given the fashion community in Canada and Italy. Also, not to mention the amount of work and energy she puts into everyone of her events.
Thank you Linda for everything, it was a pleasure and great experience working with you!
To any Bride-To-Be looking for THE EVENT planner!
Congratulations beautiful girl. I am sure you are full of excitement, and can hardly contain that brilliant smile. But in these coming months, you also have a lot to plan, venues to book tastes to sample, there are so many details to finalize before your special day.
Allow me to remove some of the pre-wedding planning stress. I know a lady who can turn your dreams into reality. I’m serious. Have you heard of Linda Vercillo? Linda Vercillo does not just plan an event; she plans an entire experience.
But perhaps I am getting to the point too quickly. A wedding is a significant milestone in a woman’s life. You should have some proof, so let me provide you with some evidence.
In 2015, I joined a fashion design school in Vaughan, Toronto. My dream? To work at one of the Haute Couture Fashion Shows in the world. But I was 21, had no connections to anyone in the fashion world and could barely sew to hem my pants. Little did I know there was a lady who’s daughter also attended this school. A lady who had the same dream for her daughter.
In September of 2015, the students at the school were presented with what seemed like an impossible idea. Linda was going to get us to work behind the scenes at Rome’s Haute Couture Fashion Week in Italy.
Over the months leading up to the trip, Linda worked incredibly hard sending emails, phone calls, and traveling back and forth to Italy, all to iron out all the details of the trip. She wanted us to have the most authentic experience of Italy – it is after all the country she calls home.
In July of 2016, I was sitting on a plane on my way to work for one of the world’s most elite clubs, all thanks to the work of Linda Vercillo. No other university or college program to date offered such an incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to its students, and I’ll tell you why… No other program had Linda Vercillo.
Over the course of two weeks, I worked behind the scenes at the shows of 4 different high fashion designers, was able to watch a high fashion show, ate the most delicious pasta and pizza dishes I’ve ever had at restaurants in the heart of Rome, and had as much gelato as my heart desired. Yes, I also saw the Colosseum, the Vatican, and the Trevi Fountain but Linda made sure we experienced the beauty of the smaller, lesser known bits of Italy’s magic and it was those moments that made the trip all the more memorable.
The last week of our trip she ensured that we visited her home region southern area of Calabria before we left. There we took a boat along the coast and dove in and out of sparkling clear blue waters, we rode horses along the beach and perused the local market for fabrics and unique trinkets to take home, we travelled to the mountains to learn how to make a traditional Italian meal from scratch, we woke early to get our pick of freshly baked goods at the best bakery in town, stayed up late through the night to watch the sunrise over the Ionian Sea, and we drove late at night into the mountains just to get photos of the coastal city lit up in the night. Linda put her heart and soul into planning this experience of Italy for us. I have had the privilege of traveling to many countries, but this trip is The trip I will never forget.
Linda Vercillo is a fairy godmother. She will help you find your glass heels, the crystal carriage, and she will plan you the perfect ball. It does not matter where in the world you want your wedding, Linda will put her heart, soul, and boundless creativity into every experience she plans. Linda will think of all the little details you didn’t even consider to make your day just that extra little bit special.
I wish you happiness, laughs, and love to last a lifetime. I know I leave you in very capable, caring hands. All the best.
When we started planning our wedding I thought I could handle it all despite working a full time job, running a side business from home and taking care of my Fiancé who was in a serious car accident only one month after we got engaged. It wasn’t long before everything became too overwhelming and what was supposed to be the happiest time of my life became the biggest source of frustration and anxiety. Once I came around to the idea that I wasn’t Wonder Woman we hired Linda and her team. After the first meeting with her where we sat and discussed our vision I felt like finally our big day was going to come together. It was so much pressure off of me knowing that I didn’t have to worry about shopping around for reliable vendors. Linda introduced me to our florist Anna and decorator Rosemary who made my wedding look like a Pinterest dream. We appreciated that not only did we not have to worry about the fine details but that she was able to iron out all the last minute surprises that came our way. It was because of Linda and her team that my wedding day was absolutely flawless and worry free. Thank you Linda for making our wedding day absolutely perfect.
It is our absolute pleasure to recommend Linda Vercillo and her team at Tra Di Noi Events for any event planning needs.My husband Tony and I got married on August 13, 2016 at Chateau Le Jardin.
We truly felt like guests at our own wedding, which is the slogan for Tra Di Noi Events.
“I even mentioned that to some guests the night of our wedding; that I felt like a guest at our wedding!” – Carla
We thoroughly enjoyed our time planning and finalizing all our wedding details with Linda and came to know her as a truly valuable asset to our wedding day. She is honest, dependable, and incredibly hard-working. Her dedication and care for our wedding day was really shown through the planning process. Her attention to detail as she brought everything to life that day cannot be put into words. Along with her undeniable talent, Linda and Jennifer were both an absolute joy to work with.
Without a doubt, we confidently recommend Tra Di Noi Events to any individual, couple, or company who may be looking for an event planner. To those needing a Wedding Planner especially, we highly recommend Tra Di Noi Events as our experience was truly remarkable. Best wishes, Tony & Carla Ferrante”
I can not say enough as to how thankful I am to u for all that you did to make yesterday a spectacular day to say the least …
It was truly seamless and perfection. The details were all taken care of and the presentation as though I couldn’t have done it better myself..
Rob and I truly thank u for going out of your way with all the finishing touches and the obvious extras to make them that and I honestly felt such a great energy to have had u there not only on a professional level but a very personal one as well. From checking in on me before the ceremony to the candid pictures u captured and made a point to get to me first thing is truly the ultimate touch of u just being a wonderful person and Rob and I thank you sincerely and respectfully .. I will refer u any day of the week.. Thanks a million Giovanna”
“I thank you tremendously for capturing the picture of me and my dad pre ceremony, where you really showcased my favourite part of my dress. This leaves me with a vivid memory. My parents loved you and offered an abundance of praise for your efforts, as do Rob and I.
You are worth your weight in gold girl!!”
Hi my dear! We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything! ️ Our wedding day was more than incredible and more than what we imagined it would be!! We received endless compliments about the hall, the food, the service, the ORGANIZATION the decor and set up of everything! We are looking forward to our honeymoon. We will be boarding the plane shortly. Thank you for the info for Rome! Please send all the pics and videos you have through Whatsapp we will get in touch when we return! Xoxo Carla and Tony”
On Behalf of my sister Ashley, I just wanted to say thank you for all you did to make her day go beautifully and perfectly. The hall looked absolutely amazing!!! We were also glad that you were able to stay and enjoy the night with us. We really appreciate it. Thanks again for everything, Susy.”
Linda thank you for all your hard work and making my wedding very special.. love you so much.. you are amazing. Pat and I could not be happier!! ~ Lisa & Pat”
I wanted to write you to express my sincerest gratitude for everything you did for our wedding on June 1, 2013.
Right from the beginning you were amazing to work with. You listened to all my ideas and helped me execute them in the best way possible. Your decor ideas, your itinerary ideas, and more importantly your very helpful advice is what made my wedding into my absolute dream wedding. People are still talking about what an amazing wedding it was, and I know you are a big part of that.
I never would have had my day go off so perfectly if you and your team weren’t there. Literally from setting up everything perfectly (I’m thinking about your poor girl who stood outside and individually hung 50 glo orbs on the trees because it meant so much to me, haha!), to ensuring everyone was available for pictures right away (you running and grabbing my brother, pulling the beer out of his hand, and getting him in the family picture within .3 seconds, lol!) Everything you did was perfect and spot on!
Even more amazing is your personality and your ability to work with all other vendors of my wedding. I can’t stop thinking about the amazing chemistry between you and my MC. I had always heard, “Oh, wedding planners and MCs don’t work well together, it’s going to be a disaster.” Well obviously, they didn’t have an amazing planner like I did;) You guys were like 2 peas in a pod working to make sure my wedding was exactly what I dreamed it to be, fireworks and all;)
So, in a nutshell, back to all the compliments I get for my wedding, the first thing out of my mouth is, ” The reason it was so perfect was because I had an amazing wedding planner!” If there is anything anyone should invest in, its you! I hear so many women talk about how they didn’t enjoy their day, or it went so fast, and I can honestly say I have uttered none of that. I enjoyed every minute of my day and didn’t have a care in the world because I knew you were handling everything perfectly.
Thank you again Linda and the S4 team, I would have never had my perfect wedding if it wasn’t for you! I’ve included some pictures that I hope you all like:) Lots of love and appreciation, Stefania and Anthony”
Linda, you pulled off a magical wedding! I’m still in awe of how beautiful, personal & perfect it all was. Most of the fun was getting to spend time with you, even if it meant going over budget. We also appreciate you taking on the MC role that night – even though we didn’t really give you a choice – you were FABULOUS! Our entire wedding experience will always be cherished – thank you for helping us create such beautiful memories. Lots of love, Mike & Theresa”
Still to this day my family talks about “that girl Linda at your wedding” and how you helped so much that day, without you I think we all would have been lost. Thanks again and I would love to keep in touch! Rebecca and Tony”
I can’t express in words how amazing the party was and how happy Melisa is, thanks to you!
The decorations with the backdrop were out of this world!!!! I could not believe how beautiful it looked and the sweet table…. OMG it was such a huge hit.
Kim and Rosemary definitely EXCEEDED my expectations!! And of course Elise and Kathy did such an amazing job….. they made Melisa look like a superstar!!! She looked so pretty….. everybody was asking her who did her makeup, and they were making remarks about how beautiful her hair was….. definitely professionals.
I have high standards in life and I raise the bar high. I am very happy and very pleased when people, professionals like you and everybody you hired for me, stood up to my standards. I literally have tears in my eyes now and I can’t be grateful enough to you for all the hard work that you put in for me and for the party to go on.
I want to tell you that I never hired a babysitter in my life, (you know I have trust issues) and I couldn’t believe how nice and gentle Lisa was with my baby. She made miracles holding her and actually staying with her because my daughter is literally glued to me and she doesn’t go to anyone.
The staff at LeJardin, including Rosemary and the bartender, were so helpful and nice and kind, going far and beyond to please me!!! Mimma, with the photo booth, did such a good job. All the kids were taking pictures with her. The custom backdrop looked amazing….. it was huge and everyone had a feeling that they were on a red carpet, movie event.
I have tears of joy because it doesn’t matter how much I spent….. it is the memory that is left behind and we take with us for the rest of our life. The video projector and the balloon drop were again, another hit of the party!! It looked so amazing….. everybody loved it. You know, when we opened the balloon drop, everybody was screaming!! I’m sorry to tell you so much information but I have to, you are family!!
The video projector that you recommended, Linda, was really cool and brought something new to the party that nobody had seen before. The monogram and the lights were very, very nice.
I just want to send you a big THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart and you will be forever in my memory!!! You are a true professional and I will recommend you to everyone that I know and definitely I will use Lejardin again for my next event.
I’m sorry if I was a pain in the leg but it’s just me … I am very picky and I have high standard with everything that I do … but again a very big Thank You from all of us!!!!! ????????????????????
PS. Last night my family stayed up until 6:00 am to only talk about this beautiful party of a lifetime!!!!!
Thank you a millions times! Love, Mariana and Melisa Spognardi
Thank you so much for your attention to the detail of the FOOD for our daughter’s Baptism! The food was exquisite, and everyone is still trying to figure out how you have that FLOWER!!
Maria and David”
It has been a couple of weeks since my daughter’s Holy Communion. I am writing this letter to thank you very much for the wonderful work you did with the dinner. Your help was very much appreciated. The ideas you had were amazing and the time you took to make sure everything went smoothly is very much appreciated.
Why didn’t I think of this before? You took away a lot of pressure and stress by dealing with all the running around, comparing prices and remembering all the little things. The cake, the flowers, the table settings etc. etc.! Your event thought of surprising the younger children with prizes personalized to their age group!
Thank you very much for helping me plan this event. Now we get to do it all over again with my parent 50th !! Yours truly, Rose Mary Kehren”
