    Organized and Helpful

    Esme and her team were so helpful for the wedding planning process. Our wedding party loved the timeline and constant communication she provided. Even with an event background, her team brings a different level of expertise that only comes with experience. The week leading up to our wedding there was heat wave, she came up with ideas for umbrellas. Esme was very responsive the process and created a holistic approach on how to not be stressed throughout the wedding. The day of, there are always some hiccups, but she was able to address and handle everything. Even at the end, everything was packed up properly and her team was amazing! Definitely choose Esme and her team to plan your dream wedding!

    Esme was great!

    Esme was so great to work with. She listened to all my ideas and really brought to life the wedding I envisioned. The fact she is bilingual made everything much easier as my mother was involved in the wedding planning process and also wanted to communicate with her. I cannot thank Esme enough for planning the wedding of my dreams.

    Bodamaestra's reply:

    Thank you for your kind review, Shannis. We loved working with you! It was fun to talk to your mom in Spanish and being able to answer all her questions. I appreciate how close your work with us and your trust in our team. All the best!
