  1. Has anyone used El Velo photography and if so, would you recommend them?
  2. Well I decided to go with Sylvia from Paradise Weddings and I regret to report that after a month and a half of hiring her, I decided to end our contract because of her lack of professionalism. She informed me that she will be leaving the country for six months and won't be available to me or my wedding planning for that matter, for those months (mind you I get married 2 months after her arrival to CR) BUT that her other planner will be taking care of my wedding in the meantime while she was gone. She immediately cc'd this other planner on all our communications, and this other planner became my new planner before she even left the country. This other planner was not on the same page with me nor was she whom I interviewed and hired to do the job. I was very disappointed that Sylvia didn't mention her vacation/time off for 6 months when I interviewed her nor did she even mention that it was a possibility of it occurring; had I known this detail about her future plans I would have made a different decision, an informed decision. I sent her emailing expressing my thoughts on the situation and she replied stating that it was not set in stone then and that it is an incredible growth opportunity for her, which is absolutely fine with me had she mentioned that it could be a potential future plan. Another thing that bothered me about it was that I had scheduled to travel to CR in July to meet with her and vendors which she confirmed dates for me to travel there, but this happened to be one of the months where she wouldn't be in CR and I was just very disappointed with her and no longer trusted her. I originally went with her because she was much cheaper than the others and called me even during holy week which was nice, in order to have a phone interview. She was prompt in answering emails and phone calls. But after this and her new planner's mis-communication, I was just turned off and got a terrible feeling about her. I cancelled my contract with her, lost my deposit which was a small fee to pay to not have a potentially disastrous wedding. I am now currently with Samantha Kohn from Events CR. She's on top of things, speaks English, has a US telephone number which is great, and replies promptly to her emails. She gave me references to contact, my wedding venue suggested her when I booked, and so did other venues along with Barbara from Four Nineteen Weddings. She was more expensive than Sylvia from Paradise Weddings but you truly get what you pay for. I think skimping on a planner is just not the right place to save money on especially if you are overseas and need someone to be "you". I will update her services as I complete my contract with her, but I think everything will be smooth sailing from here on out with Samantha.
  3. So how did your wedding turn out with Sylvia? Were you happy with her services and professionalism?
  4. Thank you ladies and congratulations to all the new brides to be
  5. Hello, My name is Nati and I recently got engaged 2 weeks ago. We have decided on getting married in CR. We would really like a mansion, estate or hacienda to have both our ceremony and reception for about 100 guests. Water view and rain forest back drop would be best as we don't really care for a beach front property. I don't know where to start. I do know I need to hire a great wedding planner asap. Any recommendations are truly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Nati
  6. Hi there, My name is Nati and I just got engaged to my fiance Caleb on March 8th. We would like to get married in Costa Rica in March of 2014 but I am not sure how to begin. I feel extremely overwhelmed. I am dental student and don't have that much time to plan my wedding and will most likely need to hire a planner. Any suggestions on where to begin? Thank you in advance.
