Bodamaestra, which translates into “wedding masterpiece,” proudly serves couples of every nationality, faith, and background.
Additionally, as a bilingual wedding planner, we offer the added benefit – or in some cases essential service – of catering to couples and families who speak Spanish. To this end, I have an authentic understanding of the distinctive qualities that define many of today’s Latino wedding ceremonies and receptions.
Start the wedding planning process on the right foot! Avoid spending countless hours online, sending emails to vendors to find out about potential wedding venues, florists, bakers, photographers, videographers, and wedding invitations – and let’s not forget about finding the right DJ or band that could make or break your party…that’s simply SO much to handle! Bodamaestra offers you a full wedding planning service and wedding management like no other.
We know the best of the best in the Washington, D.C. Metro area! Creative and talented vendors who are eager to work with you to bring yourwedding vision to life.
You’ll also have to think about all your other needs, such as your wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses, hair and makeup styles, out-of-town guest activities, lodging and so on. Will you save your cake top tier? How will you organize your wedding guest list…wait, plated or buffet dinner? Open bar, signature drinks? Alcohol permits, wedding insurance – what’s all this!? Will we even be able to afford this wedding?
Not to worry. We understand that this may seem overwhelming, but we’ve got you covered. With so much to plan and so little time to do it all, our job is to get you super organized. From our master checklist to helping you arrange every single detail, you’re in good hands with BodaMaestra. We will kindly remind you of tasks that are due so you don’t miss a beat. Our service includes budgeting, too, which is an essential step to start planning your wedding and that will avoid the sticker shock.
Do we cover your wedding design needs? Yes, of course! Let us bring your Pinterest board to life by helping you create your own signature style. From wedding stationery, floral recipes and wedding cake design to choosing your perfect color scheme, together we’ll achieve that look – the one that speaks to you and that will be worthy of any wedding inspiration blog!

Simply the Best
Esme is a top notch wedding planner. She took our vision and made it into our dream wedding. Her decorations were amazing. We were amazed at how perfectly designed and displayed they were. She found ways to meet with us virtually during COVID and made sure everything was under control. There are many wedding planners out there, but there is only one Esme. She is simply the best!!!!Sent on 08/10/2020

Esme is amazing!
No need to look any further - hire Esme! We hired BodaMaestra for wedding coordination for our 9/5/2020 wedding, and I can't imagine how much more stressful the last couple months would have been without Esme's help. She made sure everything was squared away with all our vendors and provided invaluable guidance for a couple last-minute issues days before the wedding, as well as changes due to the pandemic. The day of the wedding, I didn't need to worry about a thing - Esme and her colleagues worked with our other vendors to ensure the ceremony and reception went off without a hitch so my husband and I could just relax and enjoy our day without having to check on things or answer any questions. Esme's services are truly money well-spent. On top of her professionalism and talent, she is incredibly nice and a pleasure to work with. Thank you, Esme!Sent on 09/17/2020

Creative, Understanding and Great Communication
For my wedding I was looking for a wedding planner that understood the latin culture. I wanted to have a Loteria theme wedding that combined the culture of my parent's native country and my husband's parent's native country. I came across BodaMaestra through a social media post, I became curious and checked out BodaMaestra's main website. As I was scrolling on the page I fell in love with seeing pictures of other couples weddings. The decor for each wedding looked so beautiful! That's when I knew I should contact Esme and see if she was available for my wedding date. Having Esme has our wedding planner was an amazing experience! I explained to her what theme I wanted for our wedding, and she created design presentation that demonstrated ideas for centerpieces, floral design , backdrop recommendation. As I looked at the design presentation I was amazed with her creativity. She made the wedding planning process go smoothly, she was great at communicating with me and also very understanding with budget goals. My wedding day went perfect, my guests complimented on how organized our wedding was, how beautiful the flowers were and loved the centerpieces we had! Thank you Esme for all your help, wishing you so much success.Sent on 08/04/2019
Team of Bodamaestra
Owner & Principal Planner
Hi, I’m Esme! I have been planning wedding since 2004 when I was still living in Mexico. Bodamaestra Wedding Planning kept its identity but it shifted focus once I moved to Northern Virginia. In 2010, I started helping Latin-American couples from the Washington DC Metro area and to my surprise, there were many couples waiting to be served by a Spanish speaker wedding planner that was able to understand their culture and traditions. I graduated from the ITESM, Monterrey Campus (or better known as Monterrey Tech) with Bachelor of Arts in International Relations. I have been married to Joe for 12 years (and counting!); he’s my best friend and soulmate; he’s also the reason why I ended up moving to Northern Virginia. Together, we are raising our 4 children, juggling schedules to keep up with soccer games, weddings, business schedules and our much needed date nights. I enjoy cooking Mexican food, red wine, and love spending time with my immediate and extended family.
Esme is a fabulous planner that we love working with!! She's organized, responsive and all around a great asset to any bride as well as all the vendors like us!!! We know things will go smoothly with her in charge!!!
Bodamaestra Wedding Coordination is an excellent support to brides and grooms as the prepare to celebrate their big day! Given their bilingual fluency and bicultural experience in the Hispanic community they serve a great need in our DC Metro community! Highly recommend them!
Professional, polite, thorough, talented and beautiful is what you will get with Esme of Bodamaestra. We absolutely love working with her as she makes every event she touches a breeze. Her attention to detail is superb and you can rest easy knowing your event will run smoothly in her capable hands. We highly recommend contacting her today!
