We decided to get married in Puerto Rico because we loved the idea of a beautiful, exotic and unique experience but also because we wanted to do something to help. Tourism and destination weddings are a huge boon for the economy there and we knew our money would go toward something that not only meant something to us but to people who were getting things going again. This was not an easy task considering Hurricane Irma and Maria had devastated the island and many hotels and businesses were still without power. One hotel we inquired at passed along our information to Sari and I feel that it was meant to be. She and John went above and beyond for us, and created a perfect wedding package for us on the beach. They worked out everything we needed in a short amount of time and despite the challenges that remain. I can't say enough about the experience other than I encourage anyone who is thinking about having a wedding in a tropical location to give Puerto Rico and Sari a true chance. We had the wedding of our dreams and have the pictures and memories to match.

Cruise Port Day Wedding
We decided to have our wedding during an 8-day cruise. The price, service, location, and all that was included with Tropical Weddings far exceeded what the cruise lines had a to offer. Also, as a LGBTQ+ couple we were unable to hold our dream beach front ceremony at several of the other port locations (told no by the venues). Sari and John said yes and then helped us every step of the way. Planning a wedding in San Juan from North Carolina was nerve wracking, yet everything came together perfectly. Thank you so much to Tropical Weddings, Sari, John, and everyone involved who made our day fantastic.

Dream wedding coordinators!
Sari and John were life savers in this wedding process. First time we met they took us to La Hacienda where my husband and I decided we didn't need to look further. Everything after that was coordinated in getting vendors, last minute details and everything in between. I was very stressed out the last couple months, as any bride would be, and they were there to take that away. The hired the "dream team" for my wedding and essentially thats why I think everything turned out perfectly. My guests were even telling me how well everybody working was in sync and how attentive Sari was in helping out with guests needs. The day of our rehearsal there was some suspicious heavy rain for a bit and it kinda scared everybody, but John assured it it wouldn't rain. Wedding day arrives - Johns mom cleared the skies for us to have our day uninterrupted! Overall, my wedding turned out just the way every girl dreams - perfect and with her Prince Charming. Sari and John made every bit of that happen and I'm glad my husband and I met them and I look forward to working with them again someday! Thank you so much!
I highly reccomend Sari's services as she is very responsible, has the experience and knowledge needed in the field. She is also a great and talented person and it is always a pleasure working with her.
Great Working with them!
