I contacted Maria about 10 months prior to my wedding to begin the planning process in Puerto Rico. Since I’m not a local, I was a bit nervous and hesitant to booking vendors and a venue sight unseen. After my initial communication with Maria she put both my fiancé and me at ease and gave us all the helpful tips and suggestions after hearing our specific needs. Closer to the wedding date we began communicating a bit more frequently as she began preparing final details. She made my wedding day go absolutely flawlessly and made sure nothing skipped a beat. I would definitely recommend Maria to anyone looking to get guidance in help for their wedding in Puerto Rico. She made our day absolutely magical!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH MARIA!Sent on 06/03/2019

Everything you need and more
Maria is an AMAZING wedding planner! I thought that planning a destination wedding in Puerto Rico from the continental U.S. was going to be challenging... Maria made the entire process completely painless! She made sure I stayed on track with whatever tasks I needed to complete, and she took care of the rest. Choosing vendors was so easy with her help. Maria helped me narrow down the vendor list and choose the perfect fit. Having her around during meetings made me feel more confident in my decisions because she always gave me the pros and cons, providing support whenever I needed it. Maria always had my back when other people gave unsolicited opinions; she knows how to handle these sometimes uncomfortable and overwhelming situations with amazing professionalism. Maria will always give her honest opinion when asked. She has an amazing ability of knowing exactly what you’re thinking or what your vision is and how to explain it, even if you can’t quite articulate it yourself.Sent on 08/25/2019
Maria also takes care of all the legal requirements for getting married in PR. This was an huge relief because the legal process can be very overwhelming. The day of the wedding was stress-free because Maria and her team kept everyone on track. She makes sure each vendor has a detailed schedule with every event happening throughout the day. It helps that Maria knows and has worked with basically everyone in the PR wedding industry!
I would 100% recommend Maria to any bride looking for a stress-free wedding planning experience.
A very dedicated and passionate wedding planner.
María A. Lugo is the most experienced wedding planner I know. Right away you can appreciate her knowledge and expertise just from the initial conversation. She has the best interest of her clients as well as the vendor she is working with in order to obtain a memorable event. If you have a unique request for your venue it is most likely she will be able to exceed expectations while delivering exactly what you imagined or even better. Do not hesitate to hire her, she is the pro you are looking for!
Maria Lugo is organized, calm, understanding and kind....all qualities that are vital in a Destination wedding planner who needs to be the "go to" person for bride and vendors alike! Everything happen, in a timely manner and with every detail in place. I have worked on several weddings with Maria, and in each case, her calm competence just shines. I can't wait to work another event with her!
