I can not say enough good things about Arquetipo! They are absolutely incredible at what they do. We planned a destination wedding at the Vanderbilt in San Juan and they were recommended to us by our planner. We had multiple appointments scheduled for that day but cancelled them immediately after meeting Arquetipo. The floor plan they came up with blew us away. We scheduled a skype call to see the actual tables about a month before the wedding and were amazed at what we were shown. The day of the wedding was truly a sight to be seen. They brought our vision to life plus more just by looking at a few pinterest boards we put together and a few conversations by phone. The decor was absolutely stunning! Everyone raved about how incredible the room and ceremony looked. The flowers were beautiful and the mix of mirrors and candles and crystals were breathtaking. And all of this for a completely reasonable price! If you want a wedding to remember BOOK Arquetipo! They will not disappoint. They are absolute masters at their craft.

Emilio, Julio and the team at Arquetipo are beyond outstanding and come second to none. I will never forget seeing our ceremony and reception venue the day of our wedding. It was breathtaking and the detail was unbelievable. If you are looking for the absolutely best there is, look no further than Arquetipo.
From day one, their team was extremely responsive and professional. They are experts in their field and have quite the portfolio to back them up. My husband and I got married at the Ritz-Carlton, San Juan and the hotel recommended we use Emilio and Julio. These two create magic. Our table settings and other decor were so romantic, warm and inviting. The flowers were perfection and every last detail was perfect. I have an extremely A-type, detailed, personality and I was very particular with who I would trust for our wedding decor. I will forever be grateful to Arquetipo for making our day nothing less than perfection.

EXCEPTIONAL, ARTISTS, UNIQUE! There is no one out there that could make your wedding like Julio and Emilio!
IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING THEM, STOP!! BOOK THEM NOW ---> YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO KEEP READING THIS AND DO IT NOW!
REALLY PICK UP THE PHONE AND BOOK THEM NOW!
ok not joking they are spectacular. I was soon picky and very hands on with all the decorations, we had about a thousand meetings and email and calls every day! But that's just me. They always found a way to calm me down (every single time) and blow me off my feat with ideas! The amount of details, the artistry, the countless advice! all worth it. --> they are on the pricier side but will adjust to any budget and WHO CARES! THEY ARE 100% WORTH IT! REALLY !! From the moment I walked in to their amazing office sat down and only had to show them ONE picture and Emilio knew exactly what I wanted! Every meeting from there on I asked and asked for more and he gave me more ideas and when the day of the wedding came I was in total shock! it was truly magical!! I'm going to give you a rundown of the decor:
Ceremony: We wanted it to look glamorous but at the same time fit in with the environment, They totally captured it! the vintage hurricane lamps, the flowers, the beach in the background with the vibrant green grass looked breath-taking!
Cocktail: This was all Jose's decor Wishlist. Fitting perfectly with the location wooden tables and a very industrial look. We want to send a very very very special thank you to Emilio for making this space look stuning! Especially for the Street Market lights!
Reception: Glamorous with a hint of Mermaid, We are still blown away by how beautiful it all looked! I had a very specific idea and look in mind but it truly turned out 1,000 times better than what I could have ever hoped for!
again, I am so grateful for Julio and Emilio for making all my crazy ideas and demands possible! it was everything I imagined and more! No one else could have ever done what they did
