Best Destination Wedding Planner!
We are so grateful to have had Karen help us in our journey! We gave her our ideas and she created such a beautiful vision for the wedding and event. I highly recommend her and her team of vendors to serve you on your special day. She has a wealth of knowledge, experience and has been featured in popular wedding articles for her talent and magical coordination of her events. We have truly gained a friend that we will always have a pina colada with when we visit Puerto Rico! Thank you, Karen!Sent on 02/19/2021

Karen is such a wonderful person and professional! She has become a friend to us. We started planning our wedding even before the pandemic hit. Then, when all the covid19 situation started, we were worried about if we should cancel or continue with our wedding. Karen never stopped working, though. We told Karen we would like to continue with our plans even if we had to reduce the wedding guest list to 20 people. While everything started to become more flexible, Karen gave us notice of everything happening in Puerto Rico with Covid19 restrictions, and everything went smoothly. Karen also has a large list of venders for you to choose from (excellent vendors!!). Karen also worked with vendors that I recommended. It was so easy to work with her!! But let me tell you about the wedding day... Karen is a ninja!! We had our ceremony at the Palacio Provincial and our party was at Hotel el Convento. They are almost a Old San Juan street away. This woman transformed each venue in such a dreamy way!! She had everything ready: music, decore, officiant, photographer... everything! Honestly, I can’t stop thanking her for planning our wedding the way we always dreamed. My husband and I are so great full for all your hard work, Karen. We’re so proud to had called you our planner and now call you our friend. 💕 Thank you!Sent on 06/03/2021

Karen was absolutely incredible. If you book her for your planner, just know that your wedding will exceed your expectations. Karen planned a safe and perfectly coordinated wedding during the pandemic. My wife and I do not live on the island which was an added challenge, but Karen coordinated everything with expertise and eased our stress about the planning process. The day of our wedding was a perfect dream. We were able to relax and enjoy the day just like we had hoped for. The vendors that Karen had recommended were out of this world. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and we will cherish the memories forever. Karen was amazing and we had such a fantastic time getting to know her.Sent on 03/29/2021

Hello couple! I have been a social event industry enthusiast for more than a decade, however, my 16+ years of professional life have been mostly in digital marketing and client-project management. I have an MBA with concentration in Marketing, followed by a graduate certificate in Public Relations and continuing education in Digital Media.
A wedding is a beautiful and memorable event, filled with emotions and good vibes. But it is also a great responsibility. I hold a couple’s dreams in my hands. This is a very special trust and I don’t take it lightly. I am determined to create not only a wonderful wedding experience, but also make sure you enjoy the planning process.
Working with Karen is such a pleasure.She is so responsible, charming and alwyas available when you need her. Not only she is a amazing event planner she is an amazing events designer. Thank you so much for making a decor out of this world for the wedding of 12/30/2016 and the wedding of 1/7/2017. Both decorations were so magical, beautiful, romantic. It was stunning.
