My first meeting with Maria was at a Starbucks in Dorado and I felt like I had known her for years. She made me feel super comfortable. She is extremely sweet, professional and very detailed oriented. Our wedding was absolutely PERFECT! Everything looked exceptionally beautiful, Maria was on top of everything and thanks to that we were able to enjoy every second of our BIG DAY!! Also I had the best vendors ever!!! but everything goes back to Maria, her advice and services, I’m so happy to have had her as our wedding planner and I will highly recommend her to anyone! We worked together for over a year and I have made a lifetime friend.Sent on 04/08/2018

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

I remember the moment I wanted to book Maria Lugo. We were getting to know each other on the phone and discussing wedding possibilities. I mentioned some décor I saw on her Instagram and she flat out told me it was out of my budget. I knew I needed someone honest to keep me grounded so that I didn’t lose sight of the budget and my wedding didn’t take over my life. At the same time, Maria always wants you to be happy and she has many creative solutions to help accommodate what you want. The vendors she recommends are top notch. If there’s any aspect of the wedding you’re not interested in being “hands on” you can trust the vendors she recommends to execute things flawlessly. On the rare occasion where we did have a misunderstanding with a vendor, we always felt comfortable talking to Maria and she always helped us clear things up. I don’t know how I would have managed without her! On the wedding day she was ON it. She has a way of multitasking, noticing little details that can be improved, while also being at a distance for you to just enjoy the day with your loved ones. I noticed her a couple hours before the ceremony where she helped sort out my accessories for details pictures, make sure my robe looked cute during the video, steamed one of my bridesmaid’s dress at the last minute, and this was just her interactions with me. She’s also making sure the vendors are on time, get paid, are setting up, and I assume other things that I can’t even fathom because I’m not a wedding planner. Once the wedding started, I only saw her a few times because she executes things behind the scenes while everyone is having fun. I’m so happy I didn’t have to think about anything during the wedding. Just the actual emotions of love, joy, celebrating, and having fun. My wedding was flawless and a huge reason is because of Maria’s impeccable work. The other reason is because my other vendors were also fantastic, and they were almost all recommended by Maria. The one exception was a musicSent on 07/27/2018
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!
