Katherine and Anthony 's Wedding

Big

Our wedding was great, the most magical fairy tale that I could have ever imagined. Cartagena is the perfect romantic city for a wedding, it's streets, it's colors, everything about it makes it the perfect destination wedding spot. I recommend caribe cordial as your planner, they will walk you thru the whole process especially at times when you get stressed and anxious.

Magical! That's how we described our wedding. I'm Colombian, my husband is American/italian. Juan Camilo did a great job, the wedding was overall beautiful, just a few little things like the entrance to the reception was not rehearsed and we didn't know where to go, but overall everything was beautiful. Our guest had a blast, they are even sending thank you cards for such wonderful time they had, not just at the wedding but during their stay. Juan Camilo helped us put together extra curricular activities, like a party bus or chiva the night before the wedding, a brunch and a trip to the islands. I would highly recommend caribe cordial, but keep in mind to stick to your budget, otherwise you can end up paying 4 times the amount you wanted, do rehearsals of everything no matter what everyone says, you are the bride, follow your instincts, and keep on top of the very small details, Caribe cordial takes care of everything else. Also, the girl that was with me the whole day of the wedding was amazing, she treated me like a princess, she made sure that I was not stressed that day. Thank you caribe cordial for helping us have the most wonderful day of our lives.

Amazing,magical,beautiful. Since the first time we meet him during our first trip to Cartagena to meet the vendors, we were deeply touched by Felipe. The day of the wedding, as soon as he started playing our song with the piano and chelo, my heart skipped a beat. I had to contain my tears, and all I wanted was to see my fiancé. Totally recommend him, the money was so worth it. He added to the moment of the ceremony. My husband said that he couldn't contain the emotion when he heard Felipe starting to play our song.

Great Dj. I sent him an email 3 months before the wedding with a list of few songs per decade and he made an awesome play list that kept our American, Irish, Italian and Colombian friends and family dancing until 4:30am

Juliet's was wonderful, her words were so touching, she had me and all our guest with tears. She took her time to read my email about our story and delivered an outstanding ceremony. The only reason I gave 4 stars, is because my husband couldn't understand Spanish, and the translator didn't quite recite the ceremony the same way Julieta did. We thought that if she spoke English, it would have been so much better. And given she marries so many international couples, she should learn English, other than that, she is wonderful. I recommend pay the pricey fee for the professional translator, don't get a friend, they get too emotional and nervous.

Hotels/Accommodations

The rooftop view is to die for, beautiful. You have ocean everywhere plus the old city, it's just outstanding. Only negative thing is that they gave me a price 8 months before the wedding, and 1 month before the price went up because in the original price they had not included service and plates/glasses. You would think that a hotel had such things covered on the quote. Also the elevator only fits like 6 people at a time, so it wasn't very pleasant for our guest to have to wait. We had close to 60 people. And finally, although it offers a beautiful view, it's kind of difficult to make it nice for your entrance/ walking down the aisle. Because of the way it's organized, there is not much room and you can't really show your dress or get a lot of pictures while walking. As far as for pictures, your guest will love it.

Ceremony & Reception

The house is a beautiful historic villa, our guest loved the house. We stayed there for 5 nights and had the wedding reception there also. The reception around the pool is beautiful. It's so vintage and natural at the same time. Negative things were, in August the heat doesn't circulate the house and it was extremely hot during the reception. One thing our guest keep talking about, was hot hot it was. You would need like 4 fans and it might still be too hot. The other thing is that we stayed too long, and it cost us a lot of money on food. We also had to feed the 5-6 people that work there everyday, wether we were at the house or not, (which we didn't know, so it took some time to get confirmation from the wedding planner) plus all our guest. The manager kept on asking me for money even the day of the wedding, I had to ask her to please not. Other than that, expect to be treated as queens and kings, outstanding service and delicious breakfast, remember that it's up to your pocket if you want better breakfasts. I would recommend staying at this villa only for the minimum 2 nights. Otherwise you are constantly being bothered by people, especially he ones who don't speak the language... Why is the wifi not working, the AC is not working, there is no hot water etc. do yourself a favor, and stay the few nights and save yourself a lot of money and a lot of stress and aggravation.
