Beware of Jason Margarita and his unprofessional team of kids
I was planning my wedding about a year ago in Aruba. I had everything planned perfectly with a hotel except signing the contract. I went to aruba.com to ask for different vendors and wanted other brides to respond. I received a private message from a Jason Margarita who told me that if I go with his services he will give me the best prices as with the hotel they are marked up 200%. We were on a budget and wanted extra services so without thinking and only listening to his reviews on aruba.com we went with it.
From flowers to table decoration, transportation, makeup artist, hairdresser and steelpan, you can say the works. He saved us money but in the end we were very unhappy with his unprofessional services.
It started out with my hairdresser and makeup artist showing up very late which made me be late to my own ceremony. Jason was to show up at 5:30 for photography but did not get there till 5:50. My mom was upset as we knew to be downstairs to get us started with a 6:00 ceremony. Jason replied "don't worry I am the planner and everyone has to wait timing is ok, don't worry". When I got to the ceremony I seen that my officiate was not very happy and my guests were hot waiting in the heat. As I looked around I saw black crew of young kids under 22 with cameras, one even looked 16. They were present to take professional photos of my wedding and I have to say it was a joke that my bridesmaid pushed the young kid away because he was right over her breasts to get an angled shot.Jason failed in every aspect of professional services. He is not a 5 star professional in our eyes but rather a scam artist who built his reputation by lying on reviews. My husband had mentioned to me that we got what we paid for, Cheap quality is what stands for this company.The flowers were o.k but not what I ordered, the tablecloths he promised were not anywhere to be found and the chairs were a joke.
Thank God for the reception that was taken care of by the resort itself or else we would of been very disappointed in everything.I hope I get my pictures soon, he promises that proofs are next day for viewing, I still have not got any except for the overexposed image he portrayed on facebook.Hopefully he comes through with edited images and I am praying my video is of good quality.
