I hired Vanessa initially as my wedding planner but also contracted her to do my flowers. I can't put into words how grateful I am for her. My wedding was almost a disaster - literally. I was originally going to be married at the Breakwater on South Beach. However, after 10 months of struggling, compromising and being dealt blow after blow with that venue - the one that sealed the deal was 3 weeks prior to my wedding Vanessa informed me that Ocean Drive and it's adjacent roads would be shut down due to an event South Beach was having. Seriously? The Breakwater neglected to inform me of information that would prevent my vendors and guests from arriving to the event. Vanessa found out because she and her staff called Miami Beach to hire police officers to secure my venue due to the event they only told us about 1 week earlier. Had she not been calling to hire security, we would have never known. To make matters worse, I had a flight the following morning to Vegas for my Bachelorette so I was not exactly in a celebratory mood. Vanessa told me she would make it work out and she did.
The next morning before I left for Vegas, Vanessa held an emergency meeting with the Breakwater and asked me to come check out a new venue called The Bath Club after her meeting. To my utter surprise, she got all my money back from the Breakwater, and she found a venue that is out of this world for me to have my wedding. I felt surreal walking into that place thinking, 'Is this really happening?' the whole time. The Bath Club exceeded my expectations - I truly felt like it was an episode of "My Fair Wedding with David Tuttera" and that I had a magical transformation.
On the day of the wedding, when I walked into the ballroom (before it was even done) I almost cried because this almost didn't happen. The flower arrangements were out of this world. I wanted something different, modern, enchanted and she delivered that and more. I wish I could have kept them forever. I can never thank Vanessa enough for what she did. She is professional, creative and, most importantly, concerned - she cares about you and wants YOU to have the most amazing day possible.
I always had faith in Vanessa and her abilities. I know that even if we had to do it at Breakwater, it would have been great because she was organizing everything. But I believe it was fate that I chose her, because everything worked out for the better.
Ultimately, Vanessa was my Fairy Godmother (except way younger and prettier) and my friend :)

Truly brought zen to our wedding
When we began our search for a planner, we interviewed 5 different ones in the south Florida area. They were all great, but we chose Vanessa because we knew if sh*t hit the fan at our outdoor wedding, we trusted that she would be able to manage whatever it was. And Vanessa truly stepped up to the plate.
Leading up to the wedding, we had a few conversations (we got the 30 day package). All super informative and helpful. She has some wonderful recommendations - we hired our lighting and DJ and tents through her. She even helped us find a babysitting for some friends the weekend of the wedding and ordered our ice cream for us!
A few days before the wedding, Vanessa came to our house and picked up the MANY boxes of things for our wedding (we did a lot of DIY). The entire week leading up to the big day, the weather forecasted thunderstorms. We came up with a contingency plan together and she helped facilitate the plan with the tent vendor and the venue. When the big day arrived, it was pouring the morning. Fortunately the rain started letting up around 12pm. While we thought that we weren't going to get our dream outdoor wedding, Vanessa made sure that we did. She found a less muddy place for the ceremony, she brought rain boots for me to wear during the first look, she managed all the vendor set up the entire day. When she came to me around 1pm to tell me that our dream to have an outdoor wedding was going to come true, I literally cried!
Throughout the entire event Vanessa and her rock-star team made sure that everything was taken care of. Small things like making sure we had food / water, to bigger things like moving our uplighting around during the party. We're so happy we chose Karma Goddess and we highly recommend them for you future wedding!
