I absolutely loved getting married in Cartagena! Our families traveled from the US and Spain for the wedding and they had the best time. Our family from Spain had never been in Colombia and they didn't know what to expect... now they're planning the next trip to Cartagena.
The cake was absolutely fantastic. I got the best price of all the cake makers in Cartagena and possibly the best cake. They got all the details of the cake as I had requested them.
The only bad thing is that they did not deliver the cake at the time that they had promised which made for a stressful afternoon just before the wedding.
The pictures are amazing! Miguel made us feel at ease and very comfortable while he was taking the pictures. The end result was fantastic! He has also the best price for weddings in Cartagena. I recommend him 100%.
The music for the ceremony was great. He also arranged for music for the cocktail hour.
We also hired him to arrange for a especial music demonstration during the reception as a surprise to my husband's family. Felipe made the musical arrangements for a string quartet for several pieces typical of the Canary Islands. This was such a especial concert and my husband and his family were blown away. I was so impressed with the quality of the arrangements.
The ceremony was amazing, our priest Carlos Lozano made the ceremony feel so personal. The church was absolutely beautiful. The office staff was not particularly helpful and in fact almost delayed the wedding. If you are going to have your ceremony here make sure that you check on all your paperwork in a timely manner.
The service that we got from Casa del Arzobispado cannot be equaled by anyone. I live in the US and most of the planning was done through email. Edwin Camargo (the coordinator for CDA) was helpful, resourceful and very organized. The hotel was absolutely beautiful, and the staff so nice. My husband's family and mine stayed there for a few days around the wedding date and we had the best time. They took care of all the details related to the wedding: catering, decoration, entertainment.
The food was great! we had a buffet style meal and it was very good. They accommodated for my vegetarian friend.
The DJ and Orchestra were awesome, they had all the music that we requested and I did not stop dancing at all. My guests enjoyed the music and danced non stop.
We stayed here before we moved to the wedding venue and had a wonderful stay. The price is really reasonable. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is really delicious. We left an edible gift in one of the hotel refrigerators and they managed to save it for us.
