Simply put, Natalia is wonderful. I could not have asked for a better partner in planning my wedding (other than my husband of course!); she was right there with me every step of the way. Natalia is extremely professional, yet so personable and down to earth, I felt like we had been friends for years (and now, we likely will be friends for many years to come!). I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a thousand times over: If it weren’t for Natalia, I don’t think we would’ve ended up getting married in Mexico, which was mine and my husband’s dream. It can be very challenging planning a destination wedding from a distance, but having Natalia there to guide and support us through all of the decisions and the coordination of everything made all the difference in the world. I feel so grateful to have found her, she truly was a blessing to us, and the end result was an incredibly beautiful, memorable, perfect wedding day and weekend that neither I nor my husband, or our family and friends will ever forget. We love you Nat!

Where do we even begin! Natalia was an absolute dream come true when it came to helping us plan our wedding. She was recommended to us by a very close friend, and we are forever thankful she came our way and handled all our planning. Whatever concerns we had, questions, suggestions she was always so helpful. Planning a wedding in a different country can be quite challenging, but I am telling you when you hire Natalia, you get nothing but professionalism. She planned our wedding as if it was her own.

She was always available when needed, responded quickly to any questions or concerns we had and the best part about her, she is incredibly trustworthy. From the first email I received from Natalia I knew we were in good hands. I will never forget that moment when my fiancé and I arrived in Mexico and got to finally meet her.

I felt as if she was somebody whom I’ve known forever. Planning our wedding in Playa del Carmen was a dream and just thinking about all the love, time and effort she put in to our big day fills our hearts with such joy. Now the wedding is over and our daily emails have dwindled, but even now every once in awhile I still hear from her. She has a heart of gold!

My husband and I look forward to returning to our favorite paradise, but honestly we look forward to seeing her the most. To all those future brides out there, allow Natalia to do what she does best. I know for a fact our wedding was a success because we gave her control and listened to all her suggestions.

She is a dream come true to all you brides, and we highly recommend her. Once again, thank you Natalia for all that you did for us. We are forever grateful for you and all your knowledge when it comes to planning a wedding in Mexico. You are so loved by not only the Richmond’s but all our guests who attended our special day. Muchas Gracias!!!

I’m struggling to explain in words how grateful we were to have Natalia (Weddings on the Beach) plan our ceremony. We had tried many other wedding planners before we found Natalia. What I appreciated most was her responsiveness, if there was an option for 10 stars I would have given it. She always got back to us via email within hours, this we really appreciated. Natalia always has options, there is never one way of doing anything, she is a creative person with a positive look on everything “wedding”. When times became stressful and tense she always had something positive to say about the situation and instantly I was at ease. She is also a “magician” lol Our parasols for my Bridesmaids accidentally were left at the airport and I had no flowers for my girls as a backup, I told Natalia the day before our wedding (kinda freaking out!) and she replied with, “what colours do you need?” Not only did I now have parasols I also had flowers the day of the ceremony. (that’s a whole other story). We enjoyed our experience of planning our wedding with Weddings on the Beach, I believe no matter what kind of wedding you are planning you will not be disappointed with Natalia, she is a wonderful person who is a pleasure to meet. Thank you so much for making our wedding visions a reality!

I would like to start off with thanking Natalia very much for making me wedding day the best ever. My husband and I recently got married at Playa del Carmen, Mexico. We had our reception at Al Cielo Hotel in Xpu-Ha. Natalia had to fill in on an emergency the day of my wedding. She became my wedding coordinator on the actual day which was May 16, 2015. I was able to meet with Natalia the day before and we went through the entire wedding timeline, décor, etc. She was very pleasant and very excited to help my vision come to live the following day.

On the day of the wedding my guests arrived to the venue and were simply blown away with everything. Natalia followed my timeline as discussed prior and all went on very flawlessly. Every one of my guest was so impressed. Even though I met Natalia on a fluke, I was so glad I did. I know my original wedding coordinator Andrew was great as well, but due to a sudden emergency he was unable to be there. But since Andrew trusted Natalia and thus far I had trusted Andrew I didn’t have any doubt about Natalia. I went in with an open mind and I was so happy I did. Natalia did not let me down. I will always be grateful to her work and dedication to making my day so special! She handled everything and I swear to everyone I did not have one complaint.

Thanks you a million Natalia

Love,

I just wanted to send my biggest thanks to natalia for making my wedding the most amazing day of my life.

From the moment I met Natalia I knew she was the person to organise my big day she is very calm and organised and the most likeable of people.

Being a full time working mother I did not have a lot of free time but natalia worked around my schedule sending regular emails and phone calls and kept me on track right the way through.

She has the most amazing creative flare something I wish I could say about myself but can’t. She turned a pretty beach club venue into a jaw dropping wow venue. All my our invites were blown away with the decorations and layout. I wish I could have taken credit for it but no it was all down to Natalia.

So thank you natalia your a star and this is a job you were born to do. I will recommend you to everyone.

We had the most incredible wedding in Mexico. My husband and I have not stopped raving about the two weeks we spent in the Riviera Maya. We decided on a destination wedding after looking for venues in the states for months. We couldn’t seem to find a location that felt like us. After doing some research on Tulum I came across this cute little boutique hotel (called Al Cielo) on Xpu-Ha about 20 minutes north of Tulum. We spent a magical weekend at Al Cielo in 2014 and decided pretty much right away that that was the place we would say I do. We made the absolute right choice in choosing this little slice of paradise for our wedding. It felt so private, like we had the entire beach to ourselves. We had the most incredible time celebrating with our friends and family. We rented out the entire hotel for our friends and all of our other guests stayed just down the beach at Catalonia Royal Tulum. It was perfect! We got to spend so much time with our loved ones, it was an amazing once in a lifetime experience.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Weddings on the beach to pull of the wedding weekend of my dreams. My husband and I live in Arizona and planning from far away had its challenges. We were connected with Natalia about 4 months prior to our wedding date through the then owners of Al Cielo. She was fabulous! She was super organized and made our vision come to life. We had the most incredible party complete with a light up dance floor, a churro cart and tequila shots! We did run into some bumps along the planning process but Natalia was there to make sure our vision came to life. Our wedding was the perfect combination of rustic and romance. Leading up to the wedding we had a lot of planning and logistics to get done but once the wedding day came Natalia took over and I was able to relax and enjoy getting ready with my girlfriends. It was really an amazing experience and I would do it all over again!

Natalia was a God sent with coordinating our beautiful engagement and wedding. We decided on a destination wedding in Mexico after falling in love with Puerto Aventuras. We found the perfect venue and wedding planner in Natalia.

She was able to embrace our different cultures and demands and brought our vision to life on both days.

She was able to handle changes at very last minute and played advocate between both our families to have everything perfect for us.

She made herself available to us all the time and at times with very short notice and even on holidays.

Natalia had a strict budget to work with and was able to negotiate with vendors to get us better prices without compromising on décor.

The flowers, sweet tables, drinks table, gazebo, tables and chairs, table setting were absolutely stunning, Natalia truly brought our wedding and engagement to life, we couldn’t have wished for a better décor.

The Violinist and DJ that Natalia arranged for us were amazing, they truly kept our party alive, the violinist played such beautiful music after the ceremony, her performance was truly romantic. DJ Memo kept our guest dancing and entertained with African, Salsa, RnB and pop music, there wasn’t a single person sitting.

Michael and Martina from Beso Brides were a joy to work with. Not only did they make me look absolutely stunning but they were easy to converse with and they kept me laughing throughout the entire session. I can’t say enough about this pair; you couldn’t find a better hairstylist and makeup artist than Michael and Martina. Before the wedding I was truly worried if Michael would be able to handle my natural African American hair texture but his experience more than put my worries to rest.

Martina’s tempu airbrush was light, seamless and flawless and one less thing to worry about on such a hot day.

Dani our photographer captured the most amazing pictures and video. The pictures show the art of love, dedication and professionalism that she emphasizes the artistic passion to deliver a quality work. We are extremely happy with her work, and we will hire again and again.

Our friends and family are still talking about our wedding, thank you Natalia for helping us to bring our dream wedding to life, we had an unforgettable couple of days.

I hired Natalia after our sight visit in March (wedding was in October). She took us to some off-site locations, where we fell in love with KSM Beachclub. Natalia was fantastic to help me plan. She was incredible to communicate with, who helped me plan this wedding. Natalia was excellent at returning e-mais (within a day or two). Which really helped me plan, and wrap my head around planning a wedding in another country.

I changed my wedding vision, 3 months before, to a completely different theme, and she was completely supportive and understanding of my decision. If she brought me options – like tables and chairs – she would listen to my theme and idea, and bring me deals and would go back to vendors if I still didn’t like the style or price.

The day before the wedding, we had to re-plan the entire wedding due to severe weather (it POURED for three days straight before the wedding). Natalia was great to supply options for us – she even found us a TENT a few days before the wedding. She also went out the night before the wedding and bought/rented fabric and plastic to protect the palapa from the rain – she was fantastic.  What I loved, the day of the wedding, Natalia used a lot of her own wedding décor, mixing with my own things throughout the wedding.

It was all so beautiful and she definitely saw and created my vision perfectly!

Natalia Schweitzer, WOW! This woman is truly amazing at what she does. My Husband and I got married in the Riviera Maya at the Barcelo Palace Deluxe. We had a rather large wedding considering that it was a destination wedding with 115 guests. We live in Tucson, Arizona and so the means of communication was primarily via email even though we did not do any planning over the phone personally she did offer that as an option. We planned our wedding in just over 1 year. During this time, I was a full-time student and it was very difficult for me to plan this wedding by myself so Natalia worked with the venue, my Mother-in-law, and I with all the planning. I am a very particular person and for my wedding, I wanted everything to be perfect. This is exactly what I got with Natalia. Almost everything we had at our wedding was brought into the venue with Natalia’s help such as the flowers, Photographer and videographer, Hair and makeup artists, DJ and band, the Chuppah, Bride and Groom Cakes and cupcakes, Dance floor, wall dressings, and so many more minor details that added to making our wedding perfect. I was pleased with all of the vendors she recommended. Not only did she recommend all of these wonderful people she also ensured that I would be happy by helping arrange trials with most of the vendors during a trip made before the wedding. During that time I tried cakes, confirmed floral arrangements, trialed hair and makeup, and met with various people concerning the event. Even though this trip is not necessary it did help calm the before wedding nerves. During this adventure, Natalia remained extremely professional and accommodated all of my hopes and desires. If I were to do it all over, I would not hesitate when choosing Natalia. She is extremely knowledgeable in her trade and helped guide me through the process with ease. I think that Natalia would be a great fit for any wedding big or small she is your gal.
