    Our 11.11.22 Wedding Dream

    Working with Sari and the whole team to plan my wedding was such a wonderful experience! Sari knows all the best wedding professionals/vendors to put together an above and beyond wedding team. We have family that live in Puerto Rico who does photography for weddings as well, and she confirmed by telling us we had all the best! Tropical Weddings knows how to work with exactly what you want and make things happen! They have a ton of great connections that made the process easy and could feel good about our choices. Since my husband and I didn't even go down once to try the food or see the venue before the wedding, but we trusted in Sari and Tropical Weddings...and it turned out to be an absolute dream come true. Everything we wanted was there and are great at handling and adapting to any mishaps that may happen in a wedding. Sari and John are really great people and felt like we've always known them when we finally met after a year or so of planning! Sari and her team even beat us to the rehearsal dinner when SHE had a flight in that day! Tropical Wedding's is the real deal and you wont be disappointed on your special day. Shout out to Emily for being amazing and by my side pre and during our wedding. She was so kind and flexible. Overall I couldn't have been happier with how our day went, and I have wonderful photos and videos thanks to Tropical Weddings planning. 10/10 !!!! Thank you Tropical Weddings!!!!

    Excellent -

    Sari and her team pulled my wedding together in less than a week. Without her expertise and knowledge of legal marriage requirements in Puerto Rico, it would not have been possible. There is no updated or accurate information online so we were very grateful for her quick reply to my emailed questions not to mention her calming demeanor. She assured me it could be done and guided us through every step, she made this bride feel that I was definitely in the right hands. The ceremony itself was small and short but wow - did she bring the emotion of the day bubbling to the surface. She was an excellent wedding officiant and we just can't say thank you enough. Tropical Weddings & Events Puerto Rico deserves all 5 stars!!
