Everything I needed and more!!
I remember enjoying every moment of the wedding day and being able to be focused on having an amazing day; and it was all perfect! The fact that that is what I remember is how I know she did a phenomenal job! She was flexible leading up to the wedding which was much appreciated, she helped in identifying amazing day of accommodations, her demeanor made it for a very
easy and enjoyable experience. She didn't HAVE TO be/do any of those things.
Marianne didn't judge any of our unconventional ideas and made all our hopes and dreams for the day come
to life! She focused on what was important to us and took care of the rest! It was dream wedding I never knew I wanted!Sent on 12/09/2019

A True Gem!
Let me start off by saying hiring Bliss Weddings was the best thing I ever did! Planning a destination wedding from Virginia and never having been to Costa Rica I don't think this would have been possible at least without completely loosing my mind in the process. From the moment I reached out to her she was super responsive and felt like an instant friend. I had done a lot of research and spoken with other wedding coordinators and none of them made me feel like my wedding was my own. Marianne listened carefully, had amazing input on my ideas, and she kept me up to date on all the details, along with amazing suggestions for vendors. She is a gem to work with! Throughout the entire process all our friends and family kept asking me how I was so calm including the day of and I truly felt I had nothing to worry about, I trusted Marianne and her team would make my vision come to life and and she did exactly that and more! Our day was so perfect!!! Thank you!Sent on 05/12/2019
