Hello Ladies!

I loved Vanessa Jaimes' website but am having a lot of trouble contacting her. I've sent her a message on her website as well as through email. Has anyone else had trouble reaching her? How were her prices? She does such beautiful work!

I met with Vanessa Jaimes and Marvin Ku Kinil during my May 2009 site inspection. Vanessa met me at the car rental company, shortly after I arrived in Cancun. I respect Vanessa's artist design, but I ended up choosing Marvin Ku Kinil since he went out of his way to impress me with a half dozen designs he created for me during our first meeting. I did not want to pay a minimum of $2,000 for flowers, so I chose Marvin as he has no minimum.

 

Here is a link to his website.

Thank you so much for the advice Marie!

I did finally hear back from Vanessa and was shocked to hear her minimum charge! Hopefully Marvin will be as helpful to me as he was to you!

Thanks again!

I'd like to recommend Robb Hiner. He works with John Gray of John Gray's Place (a restaurant) in Playa del Carmen. I had emailed him a couple of inspiration photos, and he put together the bouquet and table centerpieces beautifully. I'm attaching a couple photos of the bouquet.

 

Overall, he charged me $400 for 6 table centerpieces and a bouquet, all generously sized and beautifully done.

 

Here's his contact info:

Vanessa is very hit and miss with getting ahold of her - she responds quickly sometimes but takes her time other times!!! Very frustrating!! She actually lowered her minimum to $1500 which is better but still seems high

 

thanks for the other contacts I will try them out!
