We had 80 people at our wedding - many of whom traveled to Colombia from the United States - and every cent invested was worth it. During September it is low season and although it was very hot and humid, it didn't rain during our ceremony or party. It was a Jewish and Christian, bilingual and multicultural wedding; everybody had a lot of fun. Our friends and families enjoyed the city as much as the wedding itself and are still are talking about their crazy Colombian wedding adventure!
We chose Caribe Cordial over two other wedding planners in Cartagena and it was the right decision! We started the planning process a year and a half before the wedding. During that time we kept in permanent contact with them through email and Skype and visited them once in Cartagena to meet vendors and arrange most of the details. Daniela was always creative, looking for the best providers and prices and willing to help us with all our requests. She understood our wedding concept and gave us really good suggestions. At the end, Daniela and Juan Camilo felt more like friends than people we contracted to plan our wedding. Although they have weddings almost every weekend, the planners at Caribe Cordial make you feel as though your wedding it is the most important event for them as well. They have great local contacts and although they have been in this business for years, they are always looking for new options. Their staff is well trained and professional and very dedicated. We enjoyed every minute of the wedding and did not worry about anything at all. We recommended Caribe Cordial to friends that were getting married on an island close to Cartagena and they too were impressed by the way that everything turned out. In short, Caribe Cordial provides professional, reliable, and creative wedding planning services. They are the sweetest!
We couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding. This colonial house takes you to another era, preserving antique style while incorporating modern comfort. Although it is located within the historical center of Cartagena, always packed with crowds and tourists, once you are inside the house you feel transported to a different century, one filled with peace and privacy. The house is versatile and, given its imposing structure, does not require a great deal of decoration to become a spectacular setting for a wedding. We held our religious ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at Casa Cone de Pestagua and also rented the house for a couple of days so that our families could stay together. The manager, Adriana, and her staff were extremely helpful, kind, and attentive.
