Maruja is amazing!
Fortunately, we were referred to Maruja by another wedding planner. Maruja was attentive, flexible, and had amazing recommendations and ideas. She helped perfect our vision. We truly had a perfect day and couldn’t have done it without her! By the end of it, she didn’t just feel like our wedding planner, but more like a lifelong friend. We can’t recommend her enough!Sent on 02/18/2020

Pura Vida Wedding
We were put in touch with Maria of Lat10 weddings by our venue, Sugar Beach Hotel.Sent on 03/10/2020
From the beginning, Maria was incredibly communicative, willing to hop on a call anytime and very responsive to emails. This was comforting as we had not visited the venue and although very excited, still a bit nervous.
She really shined on the day of the wedding. All of our little touches we wanted went off without a hitch, and on a few occasions she read our minds and was quick to take action moving the evening's schedule around so we could maximize time on the dance floor.
She truly bought into our day and clearly communicated the whole way through.

Couldn't have done it without her!
I was very on the fence at first about hiring a wedding planner, but am very glad that we did! Maruja was invaluable to us, leading up to the wedding and especially on the wedding day. It truly was a stress free experience and she took care of everything, even little things that I didn't even know about until afterwards. Her experience and knowledge of the area and local vendors helped us out a lot when planning. She helped give me confidence in our decisions and I am very happy we chose her to help us on our big day!Sent on 01/03/2020
