Nerida was amazing throughout the entire process of the wedding planning and wedding day. She uses a tool for wedding planning that worked quite well and allowed us to stay engaged and up to date on the different wedding tasks, despite both of us being in different time zones. When the wedding day started, I immediately felt relaxed when Nerida's team arrived at the hotel. Special thanks to Nerida's assistant Michelle who was amazing and super supportive throughout both wedding planning and wedding day. She was with me during the wedding prep in the hotel that afternoon and allowed me to stop stressing and start enjoying the day. Also, special thanks to Nerida's assistant that help my husband and his groomsmen while they were getting ready and taking pictures. She was amazing and my husband felt that she did an awesome job as well coordinating and telling him where to go before the ceremony. When the ceremony started and Nerida helped me get out of the car, she had some beautiful words that she shared with me before I started walking down the isle. I was really nervous and her kind words helped me stay present in the moment and enjoy it. I will forever treasure those words. Her engagement throughout the entire event was top notch. My stress went away and Nerida and her team took care of everything. Everything was well organized and we felt that it could have not been better. Thanks again to Nerida and her team for giving us the wedding of our dreams. You really made it magical for us.

The absolute BEST!!!

Nerida will forever be a blessing in our lives. She not only was the absolute BEST wedding planner anyone could ask for, but also a beautiful human being that we embraced as part of our family.

We live in Texas and plans for our wedding in Puerto Rico started a little over a year in advance. Right away I was blown away by Nerida’s organization, incredible work ethic, and professionalism. She used a web-based platform that allowed us to track progress, share ideas and keep continuos communication. Even from a distance, I felt like she grabbed my hand and walked me through the entire planning process in the smoothest way possible. There was never a moment when I felt lost or overwhelmed, and there was never a question that she could not answer. Nerida understood our vision and all the vendors utilized came recommended by her. Every one of them were equally professional and did an amazing job!

I had no doubt that our wedding was going to be perfect because there was not a single detail that Nerida didn’t think of in advance. However, when the actual day came by, I can honestly say that Nerida surpassed all my expectations!!! Stating that she went above and beyond to ensure everything was on point, does not even start to explain it. From making sure that I felt calm and relaxed (even with the rain) to even comforting some of our guests… Nerida, there are no words to express our gratitude! A couple’s wedding day is always a moment to cherish forever, but ours was extra special and that will always be thanks to you.

Te queremos muchísimo y deseamos que continúes cosechando todos los éxitos del mundo, no solo a nivel profesional sino también personal❤️

We are forever grateful for the magic Nerida brought to our wedding and recommend her to anyone embarking on this beautiful journey.
