Shirley and Paul's Wedding

Big

Our wedding was a dream come true. The wedding planner, Glenda, made sure everything i asked for was executed perfectly, i never went to Cartagena, everything was discussed for a whole year through emails and phone calls. we flew a few days before to meet with the planner and vendors and honestly everything went fine. March is a great month to get married, the weather was perfect! Our guests had an excellent time and I'm so glad I was able to make this wedding happen from miles away. I don't think I could have found vendors from miles away within our budget if it wasn't from this resource Wedding Mapper and chatting with other brides.

Bands/Live Entertainment

They played our first song live, and it was just perfect. They knew exactly how to get everyone on the dance floor. Jose the lead singer met with us a few days before to get to know us and to make sure he knew what type of music to play. they were excellent! Compared to other bands they were affordable to our budget and played well into the night!

Great DJ, also met with us to get to know us. He knew exactly what songs to play, as we had a mix of different cultures, my husband is american and im colombian. Our guests were dancing all night long. The lighting was provided by this vendor as well and it was just so amazing! It really made the venue look spectacular. Also well within our budget :)

Cakes/Candies

Our wedding cake was just beautiful and delicious. They have such a variety of flavors, we had a hard time picking which one. The manager Laura was so helpful each step of the way, I brought my own cake topper and rhinestone mesh and she made sure it was put on the cake just how i wanted it. Our guests were very pleased and loved the cake! I would definitely go back to their shop for their tres leches.

His team did an excellent job catching every single moment of our wedding! They made sure everything was perfect. Our photo shoot around the city was my favorite part. They really know how to make a bride feel like a princess.

Ceremony Musicians

Andrea took the time to meet us in person before hand to go over exactly what we wanted, she sang some of the songs to us since we weren't familiar with them. We were immediately convinced of her recommendations once we heard her voice! Once i heard her sing at the ceremony again, i was so happy and several of my guests couldn't stop talking about how great and beautiful her voice is. She is an amazing singer!

Beautiful church! The staff was friendly and helpful, Carmen the secretary helped us find a bilingual priest, since my husband doesn't speak much Spanish. It was a beautiful ceremony! Despite of the time confusion, they told us 7pm, the ceremony didn't start until 730pm.

Reception Sites

We had our reception on the roof deck at Hotel Capilla del Mar. Glenda was our wedding planner, and I couldn't be happier with the excellent and hard work that she and her team did. She worked with us through E-mail and phone calls for a whole year and spite of her busy wedding planning life, she made sure she answered all of our questions every step of the way. I am so happy and pleased with everything, she made sure she executed my vision a perfect fairy tale wedding perfectly. Our stay at the hotel was phenomenal, we were treated like royalty, and so were our guests. Everyone from the front desk staff, bartenders, waiters at the restaurants took care of us for the whole week. While no wedding goes perfectly they made every effort for everything to go as perfect as possible. I sincerely appreciate everything they did, our wedding was fun, amazing and beautiful.
