After I typed the whole thing, I pushed "post" and it had deleted almost all of it. So let's try this again....
Wedding Coordinator: Illeana Reyes from Romantic Cabo Weddings- A+
I first read about Illeana on these forums and was so happy I took the advice from the other brides to use her. She is super friendly and is very fast responding to my emails. We went to Cabo several months before the wedding to see the venue and she picked us up from our hotel and took us to the see the venue, for the food tasting, and to meet a vendor. The week of the wedding she was amazing! She picked us up from our hotel and took us to the venue to discuss the details, went to our dinner rehearsal to make sure everything was going smoothly, and then planned a time for the wedding rehearsal. Illeana really became more like a friend than a wedding planner. I definitely recommend her to any bride!
Flowers: Sergio from Flowers and Events Los Cabos- A+
Sergio was recommended from Illeana. We got the bouquets, table decorations, flowers for the cake, and the chuppah from him. I was able to meet him months before the wedding and showed him pictures of what I wanted. I was a little nervous because he wasn’t very fast at responding to my emails, but Illeana reassured me he would be great. The day of the wedding I was so happy to see how beautiful the bouquets and reception tables had turned out. They were way better than I had expected!
Photographer: Gilda Badillo - A
Gilda was also recommended to me by Illeana. She was very friendly and I loved how the pictures turned out. She was also much cheaper than several of the other photographers I contacted. The reason she gets an A is because it took quite awhile to see my pictures. After my wedding she went out of town for 3 weeks then the hurricane hit (which I know was not her fault) but I wasn’t able to see my pictures for several months after the wedding. It was very hard to be patient for that long.
Officant: Marco Arechiga- A+
Marco was very responsive to my emails and very friendly. He allowed us to change the ceremony to say whatever we wanted it to say. He was super funny at the wedding, getting many compliments from the guests about him.
DJ: Art Ortiz- A
He was recommended by Illeana and was very good. He was good at responding to my emails and he played exactly the songs we had requested. The only reason he gets an A instead of an A+ is because right before I started to walk down the aisle the song switched to another song. He did quickly change it back. I’m just glad it didn’t happen as I was walking down the aisle.
Hair/Makeup: Alma Vallejo- A
I found Alma on these forums and was very happy with her service. Alma does the makeup and her assistant does the hair. The day of the trial/dinner rehearsal she came to my hotel and even changed my hairstyle so that everyone wouldn’t see what my hair was going to look like. The day of the wedding, my bridesmaids and I got several compliments on our hair/makeup. The only reason I gave an A is because the assistant did my hair way curlier than I wanted it. It actually turned out okay because it was humid that day so it died a little once I went outside. I definitely recommend Alma and her assistant!
