Worth every penny and then some! Great Experience.

I knew I needed to hire a wedding planner when planning a wedding in another country but I was very skeptical about doing so. I landed on Red Velvet Weddings after meeting Ise on Zoom and it was the easiest yes! Ise is very professional and very down to earth.

From the beginning I felt that she was just as invested in my wedding experience as I was and that was everything. She listened, took my ideas and requests about decor and a few extracurricular things I wanted, and brought everything to life.

I can sometimes be very type A but I decided before even hiring her that I wouldn't be that way for my wedding so I can just enjoy the experience however it all came together. On the day of the wedding Ise was a drill sergeant (a kind one) and I loved every bit of it! She was, so I didn't need to be. Get us together girl! It was great and I trusted her wholeheartedly the entire time.

She helped us put together a welcome party the day before the wedding. Helped us organize travel for all our guests flying in. And she helped us book a private boat for our party the day after the wedding which was the highlight of the trip outside of the actual wedding.

Our wedding was beautiful! Everyone had the best time.

I highly recommend Red Velvet Weddings! Ise and her team are amazing! They're worth every penny we paid them and more!

The BEST planner in Costa Rica!!!

Getting married in Costa Rica but live abroad? Look no further & hire the Red Velvet Team. Ise & her team helped me take my wedding plans to the next level. Our wedding became a seamless production and left our friends and family wowed.
One of the most difficult components of planning a destination wedding for me was knowing if I was getting the best price for a service or if I was using reliable vendors. Ise and her team鈥檚 experience and relationships with vendors helped us not only plan, but also make strategic decisions to help us save money and get the most out of our vendors. Without her guidance, I would have missed out on enhancing details of the wedding that only an expert would know.
On the day of, Ise and her team allowed me to enjoy the day. Ise provided structure but also fluidity that reduced stressed for my wedding party, family, and me. Ise prioritized our happiness & well being (ie: I was able to enjoy a full dinner at the reception) throughout the entire wedding week.
If I could have done anything different for my wedding, it would have been hiring the Red Velvet team sooner during my planning. I鈥檓 so grateful for Ise & her team for helping me create my dream wedding and even more grateful for the new friendships I developed with Ise and her team.

Hi there! First of all, congratulations on your engagement! My name is Isella but you can call me Ise! I have almost 10 years of experience on the hospitality industry working with big companies such as Riu Hotels, AMResort and the one where I found my vocation, Hyatt.

I dedicated the last 4 years to plan weddings which became my passion! I am a detail oriented person that love to keep control of things all the time, I think that's one of the reasons why I am such a good planner.

2020 has been a hard year for everyone, but since I like to see the bright side of every situation, has been also the year to reinvent ourselves and make a good use of the time at home, this is why I decided to start my own business, Red Velvet Weddings, an small company dedicated to be part of celebrations of love all around my little and magical country.

Planning a wedding should be fun, let me make sure that yours is!
