Profesionalismo/ Professionalism

If i could describe Novella with one word it would be Professionals. The connection and relationship they build with their brides goes beyond anything you can imagine. They take the time and dedication to understand your vision, design it and bring it to life. They are extremely honest when it come to budget. But at the end is your decision as a couple with what you want to go with. The three ladies are an incredible team, they are the perfect combination to the excellent service they provide. If close to your wedding date you feel stressed or nervous, dont be, they will solve it 鈥淭RUST ME鈥.
I left every single detail of my wedding on their hands and i can say im extremely thankful for their service.

Exceptional !!!

First of all I would like to say I loved Novella team!!! From beginning to end they helped my dream wedding come true. My wedding was over the top beautiful and I would do all over again in a heart beat. Carlota is the owner she is very knowledgeable, passionate and a blessing, she looks out for you and wants the best for you and has your best interest at heart always. For that I appreciated her so much through all the stress that comes with wedding planning. She was always their to answer my questions. Secondly her team assistant Mariana wow what a sweet, funny and easy going person she was, she helped coordinate my wedding food menu, drinks, some decor,music etc, she was like the missing puzzle to ease my nerves when I felt overwhelmed with the planning process she was truly a life savor! Thirdly the most amazing and talented Liza, decor manager wow she brings your vision to life to the max just beyond beautiful a true work of art! Next, the most sweetest and I mean the most patient wedding coordinator I鈥檝e ever meet in the world named Naomi, not only she helped me from the start when I was getting ready at my bridal suite, she carried my dress, viel, helped me change into my second dress we laughed because she even dried my sweat behind my hair ( we all know DR heat is no joke) from all the dancing lol she was just all around amazing. Lauren amazing as well she helped the groomsmen keep in order she also helped me at the reception a true sweetheart and patient! And lastly Gabriela who made sure of the finishing touches of my wedding decor was perfect thanks so much 鉂わ笍. I wish honestly I can relive my wedding again, in 5 years I will renew my vows and I plan on calling them again. I wanted to let you all know from the Novella team how much I appreciated your dedication, your passion and incredible talent you have for all you do, my wedding would have not been so special and spectacular like it was if it wasn鈥檛 for you guys. Im so glad and happy I found them. I highly recommend them and you will not be disappointed! With much much love thank you and see you soon!! Love Ingrid and Daniel 鉂わ笍
