Our wedding was a dream come true! Having friends from near and far coming together for this special moment meant a lot for us. Cartagena was full of magic and history, but it can be a little pricey. October is a great time of the year, the weather was perfect, however it can be hot and humid. Oh, and our wedding planner was SPECTACULAR. We'd highly recommend her services. We couldn't have done it without her.
Don't know where to start. Since the moment we decided to have our wedding at the most beautiful and historical place in the world, Cartagena, Daniela and the Team at Caribe Cordial were a dream come true. From the logistics, venue, accommodations, transportation, catering, decoration . . . our expectations were met beyond belief.
To start, we had only six months to plan a destination wedding. We wanted to have our wedding and reception but also the opportunity for our guests to meet prior to the wedding and interact the day after. However, we didn't want your typical rehearsal dinner and the Chiva bus came to mind as reading reviews through Wedding Mapper. We also decided on a brunch the day after to finalize a wonderful weekend. All the logistics and final details were finalized prior and it was time for us to travel. My now husband was scheduled to arrive the day before the wedding while I arrived two days prior. However, due to weather delays, he was not able to make it and was schedule to arrive until the morning off. Daniela and her team quickly helped us shift our timeline from 4 PM to 7 PM to allow time for my husband to arrive in town. However, his flight got delayed and there was a point where we thought he was not going to make it for our wedding. After lots of phone calls, worries and tears, we found him a flight to Barranquilla and Caribe Cordial quickly helped us find transportation options for him from Barranquilla to Cartagena [even going lengths and find him a translator to receive him at the airport and bring him to me for our wedding]. The ceremony, reception and Hora Loca were the best experience in our life and can't thank Daniela and her team at Caribe Cordial for everything they did for us. We couldn't have definitely done it without them.
