Our wedding in Cartagena was a true fairy tale. We loved the city. It is in our opinion the most romantic place in the world (sorry Paris). Everyone who came was truly mesmerized by its culture, architecture and the warm feeling the city gives you once you arrived. From the moment we got engaged, we knew right away that we would get married in Cartagena. The weather was incredible!!! A little hot but in the end everyone had a great time.
Our planner was Caribe Cordial and they were absolutely amazing. We had the feeling from the previous reviews that they were going to do a great job but our expectations were more than fulfilled. We worked directly with Daniela but her team was always there with anything we needed. We had many international guest and aside from the wedding, they were able to organize tours for our guest during their stay. Her assistants also took care of everything we brought from abroad from organizing our programs to putting together our wedding favors. Daniela was also creative enough to help us organize some of the German traditions we needed in the heat of Cartagena. The day of the event, her entire team was there making sure everything went according to plan. If something went wrong, I really wouldn’t know. They made sure we were truly relaxed throughout the entire day. Even after we left Cartagena to tour around Colombia, she took care of the dress and some of the extra luggage we had until we came back. If I had to say something negative, the only thing that was a little frustrating were responding to some emails kind of late. It’s a very stressful time for many brides to plan a wedding abroad and getting a fast response was very important to us. This was compensated during our stay. We felt as if we were always their number one priority. We were in constant communication with her as soon as we arrived and that gave us a lot of peace of mind. In simple words, they just did an amazing job! Everyone who attended the wedding was more than impress with how organized everything was. Caribe Cordial made the wedding the most memorable day in our lives
Where can we start about Miguel?!!! Amazing!!! Professional! Reliable! Creative! Etc… We have the most amazing wedding pictures ever! From the beginning we wanted to have the best photographer to capture the best moments of the wedding because in the end, that’s all you take with you. Miguel went above and beyond our expectations. We hire a second photographer on his team to get shots from different angles and it was well worth it. Our video came out great. I still can’t stop watching it!!!! We wanted to capture very natural moments. We didn’t want the pictures to have too much work done on them (as we have seen in other photographers) and he absolutely deliver.
The ceremony music was my favorite part out of the entire event. We had three musicians (including Felipe) and two voices (a tenor & a soprano). It was absolutely beautiful!! We choose four songs aside from the normal ceremony music and they were able to perform it better than on the radio in my opinion. It really took my breath away. It was absolutely beautiful.
Ekobios was the highlight of party. They were incredible with such high energy, everyone at the party danced to the most amazing folkloric music from Colombia. Our theme for the crazy hour was “asalto carnavalero.” At around midnight, everyone from the wedding was all of a sudden transfer to El Carnaval de Barranquilla. It was the surprise moment of the night and no one was able to stay on their chairs. Their customs were absolutely beautiful and their music kept everyone dancing the night away.
Our cake was beautiful a little pricey in our opinion but to my knowledge, it is the best vendor you can get in Cartagena. She was able to replicate our cake exactly as the pictures we sent to her
We were very pleased with Adriana Santos, they gave us a great package deal which included a sit down dinner with three meal options the guest could choose from (including a vegetarian option) they also provided all the linens and dinnerware of our choice. (She has a great variety to choose from) and because we opted to do the desserts with her, she gave us even a better deal.
Most importantly the food was delicious!! Everyone kept on talking about how exotic it was and the presentation was impeccable. Her servers were very friendly and professional on their job.
We choose to have signature cocktails throughout the night and the barman did them just perfect. ( You have to try “la limonada de coco” yum!!!
Over all the entire service was very much on point from the cocktail hour, all the way to the midnight menu. Just perfect
The flowers were beautiful and my bouquet was perfect. I give them a 4 star just because even though the table centers were beautiful, in the end they were no precisely what I had in mind. I don’t know if they pictures I sent were not easy to fully grasp the concept or maybe a little miscommunication between the two. Nonetheless, it overall
Our theme for the wedding was vintage and we wanted our invitations to have a very personal touch. They only work doing handmade designs and can work together with you to make something unique. We first try doing our save the dates with them and absolutely fell in love with their work. We continued to use them for our invitations and also our menus. Their work really captured a vintage feeling.
They always delivered on time :-)
