Anna and Jerry Testimonial

Hi Natalia,

We just got back home from our honeymoon and wanted to send you a HUGE thank you!  Everything on the wedding day was so absolutely beautiful.  We got a few sneak peek images from our photographers and it’s all just as beautiful as we remember.  We attached some photos.  The flowers, the bouquets, the Welcome signs and the Welcome table.  Everything was picture perfect and far exceeded our expectations.

I remember when we were planning and friends and family gave us advice about planning a destination wedding: Since you can’t be there to try everything, see everything and taste everything, you have to let some things go.  So we did and we put all our trust in you.  And of course, no matter what, the most important thing was the two of us being with each other and celebrating our union… but when I saw the floral arch from the Sarita balcony, I lost my breath.  The scenery at Hacienda is so perfect that it doesn’t need anything else, but that floral arch was the perfect addition to a perfect view.  We had no idea it would turn out so amazing and it photographed BEAUTIFULLY!

I am telling you, Jerry is still talking about those flowers.  (JERRY!!)  The florist that you work with is absolutely amazing.  I know this was a new project for your florist but it was executed perfectly and we just wanted to pass along a big thank you.

And of course, a big thanks to you for orchestrating a beautiful and (seemingly stress-free) day.  From the beginning, you knew exactly what we were looking for and were the easiest vendor to work with.  I could never imagine how much time and energy you spent planning our big day but it showed.  You are a total professional and an expert in your craft.  If we had to do it all over, we would choose you again and again.  My only regret is that we couldn’t have you at the resort as well!

Please let us know if/where we can leave a review for you online.  We want to sing your praises. Thank you, Natalia, for everything you did to make our day so special and so memorable.

All our love,

Anna and Jerry

 

Stevie Rose and Tayvon Testimonial

“WOW what can I say! Our wedding was truly dreamy and beyond magical. From the minute Tayvon asked me to marry him I knew we would be having a destination wedding. Considering the fact we live in Australia and had never visited Mexico prior to our wedding; we weren’t sure how it would all come together! Finding Natalia from Weddings on the Beach was the missing piece of our jigsaw puzzle. She made everything seamless and an absolute breeze. In the lead up to the wedding she would always keep us in the loop, contact us regularly and reply to my many emails almost instantaneously! Natalia also made sure nothing was overwhelming or stressful for us during this time – her nature was always cool and calm which helped make us feel relaxed throughout the whole process. When we met with Natalia for our wedding rehearsal it all just fell into place, she was instantly family and connected with my whole wedding troupe on the perfect level. All of my guests thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the day and continually tell us how exceptional the event was! We cannot be more thankful for the amazing job Natalia did to create the most fairy-tale experience for both Tayvon and myself as well as each and every one of our guests. Whenever anyone asks me how I managed to arrange and plan for our extraordinary destination wedding I say one thing and that’s have a remarkable wedding planner called Natalia Schweitzer!”

We could not have made a better decision with choosing Natalia! She navigated us through the entire wedding planning process. Natalia recommended all the vendors to me all of which were unbelievable. We planned our wedding over about a year, while I worked nights Natalia was always made communication very easy and responded in a very timely manner.

She had may suggestions about things that wouldn’t necessarily work or would work better, all of which were things that helped make my wedding day run smoothly. My wedding day ran very smooth and I felt like every little detail was in perfect place. Natalia did an amazing job sticking with the timeline we had created and the entire day went perfectly! I would recommend Natalia to anyone planning a Wedding in Riviera Maya, she is absolutely wonderful at her job.

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,

Dalila and David

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!
