We couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner. From the very first time we spoke to Itala she was very excited, energized, encouraging, and accommodating to everything that we requested. I traveled to Colombia six months before the wedding with my mom to meet with Itala and with the vendors. Itala made sure that everything was planned out perfectly and we accomplished everything that we set out to do. She's very organized. My husband and I arrived in Colombia a week before the wedding, and just like the first trip, Itala was very organized and let us know where we needed to be and when, to make sure we took care of last minute details. She made sure to let us know in advance and planned around the activities and time that we wanted to spend with our guests. We had a pretty "hyper" and crazy wedding party (10 groomsmen, 5 bridesmaids) and Itala was very patient and friendly with everyone, they all loved her! Itala was also very great with my mom. I'm very close with my mother and she was very much involved with the planning. In the months leading up to the wedding, I must admit, I was not very responsive to all of the emails, but Itala and my mom were in constant communication so I did not stress at all. At the end of the day EVERY SINGLE detail was taken care of and everything was more beautiful than I ever imagined.
The day of the wedding, Itala and her assistants (Cecilia & Cecilia) were amazing. They were patient, and super helpful. (Specially when the clasp on my dress broke minutes before I was to leave the hotel! Gasp! - I survived :) ) Itala has great relationships with all of the vendors and the staff at the hotels and churches. Every time we met with someone they were very happy to see her, I thought that was important because with any request that we made, she seemed very comfortable going to them to make changes.
During the wedding, immediately after the wedding, and for weeks after the wedding we had people continue to talk about how great the wedding was and that it was the best wedding they have ever been to! None of it would have been possible without Itala. I felt very comfortable working Itala and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding planner in Cartagena. She's the best!
Everyone at Florarte was very easy to work with and very accommodating. The flower arrangements were very important to me and they totally knocked it out of the park. I was completely obsessed with my gorgeous bouquet!
We could not be happier with our choice in photographers. Jose and Manuel are the absolute best!! We got to know them over the length of our time in Cartagena and they were extremely friendly, accomodating, and fun the entire time! They went out of their way to take care of us and to get the shots that we envisioned. The wedding video is so wonderful it almost makes me sad that our amazing wedding day has passed. Do not look any further, Pedraza Producciones is really the best!
