When we decided we were going to have a destination wedding in Cartagena, Colombia, we knew we were going to need someone we could trust when it came to making critical decisions about the wedding. Before meeting Itala, we had already fallen in love with a wedding venue - Casa del Conde de Pestagua - so when we had our interview with Itala and found out that she already had experience working with that venue, we immediately had a good feeling about her, but I think what really sold us was how genuine she seemed about helping us realize the wedding of our dreams.
Here are the reasons we were so glad we went with Itala:
- She is organized and detail-oriented. If you're as busy as we are, you can rest assured that she will follow up with you (in the nicest way possible) to obtain the information she needs in the appropriate timeframe.
- She has a strong reputation with the top vendors in Cartagena. I never once felt like any vendor was trying to take advantage, and I think that was because Itala knows how to expectations with them and with her couples.
- Itala will be on your side when it comes to the budget. She even identified several opportunities for us to save money when we were not expecting it.
- She is quick on her feet. Your wedding probably won't go 100% as planned, but Itala was always prepared - no one noticed, for example, when we ran out of beer because she was two steps ahead.
Best of all, we gained a wonderful friend who we plan on staying in touch with and visiting when we return to Cartagena!!
We highly recommend Itala to be your wedding planner. She will not let you down.
