I just returned from vacationing in the beautiful DR! I stayed at the Now Larimar, which was a beautiful 20 ish minute beach walk down to the Jellyfish! I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to meet with Mayte while there to discuss my Feb 18th, 2014 wedding!!!
It was sooo great to see the Jellyfish in person! It is such a cool place, and looks just as awesome in person as it does online!!!! It is a very intimate space! Stunning!
Before my trip I was feeling a bit worried about how everything was going to come together, and I was so anxious to get going on the planning, but with the response times being so slow betwee Mayte and I it was becoming a bit stressful!!! Even despite each returning bride saying how perfect, and wonderful their weddings were I needed to know it for myself! So let me also say, Mayte is absolutely AMAZING! She is incredible, so sweet and kind. She will absolutely do everything to make your special day nothing but perfect. After only 5 minutes together Mayte had a strong sense of who I am, my style and what vibe I wanted for my wedding day. She was instantly able to come up with amazing decor ideas, better then anything I had come up with! I left there feeling VERY excited!!!
Mayte invited us to come for drinks a few days later to see her setting up for a wedding. We took her up on this, and despite being so incrediblly overworked and stressed, you would never know it! The wedding we saw her setting up for was beautiful! Everything was done with such care! Mayte was sooo composed and even took a few minutes out of her day to come and talk with us again She really is an amazing lady.
Mayte did express to us how busy she is. She has a wedding everyday from the time we were there until the end of May. NO break. And she has a beautiful 2 year old daughter to squeeze in there too! She said she decides at least 18 hours to each wedding!!!!! So with all of that being said, please be patient with her, she does the best she can to respond to e-mails, but did explain she tries to, for obvious reasons, respond to those brides with wedding dates coming up vs someone like myself who isn't until February 2014! She is incredibly organized and knows exactly what's going on. She is an amazing one man show!
I took some great photos of the jellyfish, which I can hopefully get uploaded in the next week for you all to see. Also, tried the coco loco drink which was delicious! The Pina Colada was one of the best I have ever had, with pieces of coconut!
Hope this helps ease most of your minds! Your wedding will be PERFECT! Any questions, don't hesistate firing me a message!
