A Magical Evening
Marcella was wonderful to work with and gave us an evening that we will never forget. She made everything effortless. Our photographer, Whitney Coogan from Smile Sparkle Snap was amazing! She made us both so comfortable we almost forgot we were being photographed.Sent on 06/01/2021

Marcella is the BEST!
My husband and I used Marcella and ABFW for our vow renewal celebrating our 20th anniversary. From the first contact we had with her, she was attentive, transparent, and most of all absolutely lovely. She really made my husband and I feel like our event mattered to her. Not being from Florida I had lots of questions about the weather, what happens if it rains, etc and Marcella really put me at ease that everything would work out, no matter what!Sent on 11/20/2020
Every last detail was perfect - from the location to the photographer to the officiant to the flowers, which were exactly what I wanted and I didn’t even give Marcella much to go on! It was a beautiful experience that we’ll always remember.
Can’t recommend ABFW enough - you will NOT be disappointed!

Being from WI we needed someone that was easy to work with and understand what we wanted. She was the only company we contacted and after talking with her the first time we know that it just felt right to go with A Beautiful Florida Wedding for our 10 year wedding anniversary vow renewal. Marcella was an absolute sweetheart to work with. She set everything up with the officiant and photographer for us and made it so easy so there wasn’t any stress on us all we had to do was show up. I would highly recommend Marcella and A Beautiful Florida Wedding to anyone that is getting married or a vow renewal. She went above and beyond our expectations and she will do the same for you.Sent on 06/18/2021

30-year vow renewal perfection!
My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary this year with an intimate vow renewal in Sanibel Island, FL. Although we have been to Florida more times than we can count, we had never been to Sanibel; but, we have always heard beautiful things about it from our friends. I didn't know where to even begin the planning. I found A Beautiful Florida Wedding on Wedding Wire and read all of the positive reviews. So, I reached out to Marcella.
From the start, Marcella was very personable and listened to my heart's desires for the small event. I could immediately tell that she has a passion, excitement, and love for wedding event planning. We were on a smaller budget for the ceremony. Marcella never made me feel like it was too insignificant for her to "waste" her time with it. She let me know how special celebrating 30 years of marriage is and that the ceremony should reflect that love and commitment.
Marcella took care of everything, from securing a florist and photographer, to the day-of set up and decoration. When I panicked (which I did often... poor Marcella), she reassured me and talked me down from the ledge. On her way to the ceremony site for set-up, she breezed through and picked up our celebration cake on the way and kept it in a cooler in her vehicle until after the ceremony. All my husband and I had to do was show up and look pretty. :) When I walked onto the beach and saw the tiki torches with the beautiful flowers and the table for the sand ceremony, I was so happy. As we got closer, I could see all of the little details that I never specifically asked for, but she knew that I would absolutely love. She had placed seashells and star fish in the sand to create and aisle for me to walk down, added a pink sash around the table for the sand ceremony, and seashells to the top of the table. The romantic beach theme was an absolute dream. Tears came to my eyes when I saw it all.
I'm so glad that I chose Marcella and A Beautiful Florida Wedding! Everything was PERFECTION! Thank you, Marcella! You're AMAZING!Sent on 03/26/2021

A dreamy beach wedding in Naples
Marcella organized a beautiful wedding for us on a Naples’ white sand beach. She timed the sunset perfectly, read us our vows elegantly, and set us down a fitting shell lined aisle. A little dancing afterwards to some Sinatra set the mood perfectly!Sent on 02/28/2021

Marcella was delightful. Accommodating in every way.
Living out of state could be stressful at times for me knowing I was getting married in Florida. Marcella calmed my nerves and took care of everything. I knew I was in good hands. She was very professional and a true delight to work with. She made my wedding perfect until the very last minute.Sent on 01/20/2021

Long distance breeze
We needed help pulling together a beach wedding and reception in Naples (a place we did not know) and had less than a week to do so. Catherine and Cynthia were able to meet with us and provided several venue recommendations that would possibly meet our needs. It took a couple of days to visit all of them and make the selection and then we were out of town until just a few days before the wedding. They made sure that everything was ready for us when we returned to Naples, met with us for a final review of the day's events and promised to be there and have everything setup and ready to go. The day of the wedding we had beautiful weather (for Jan 11 and was we're sure due to their connections). The beach site and photographer were just what we wanted. We had plenty of time to take photos, get married, and have more photos just as the sun was setting. We then headed out to Seasons 52 and had a wonderful reception in a private room. Net/net, Catherine and Cynthia were wonderful to work with and made it possible to have a lovely wedding that will long be remembered.Sent on 01/25/2020

They saved my wedding and my marriage
I started planning my wedding for 10-10-2020 2 years earlier. I had no idea that we picked the most difficult year to plan a wedding. My wedding planner I had just up and quit on me. Maracella from A Beautiful Florida Wedding was a super hero. She swooped in and took over where the last planner left me high and dry. Maracella was my main cheerleader telling me that everything will workout even when my family, friends, even myself had doubts. The wedding was amazing. She answered everyone's questions so I could focus on my big day. She saved our wedding. It really was a beautiful Florida wedding.Sent on 10/14/2020

Made our day special
My wife and I are so happy we decided to go with a Beautiful Florida Wedding more so with Lourdes Aldana. Our experience with them was fantastic. Lourdes was amazing! She gave us lots of options to customize our ceremony. We were so at ease after speaking to her for the first time. She was very open with us and sharing of her own experiences. If we had to redo it we'd absolutely go with both a Beautiful Florida Wedding and Lourdes.Sent on 09/13/2020

A Beautiful Florida Wedding was a dream partner for a meticulously detail oriented control freak! My husband and I live in Minnesota and planned to marry in Naples because the town means a lot to us. I was VERY fearful of planning a destination wedding from 2000 miles away with no plans to visit before the ceremony. ABFW set us up with the perfect beach location, provided gorgeous flowers, arranged for impeccable hair and makeup services, scheduled a fantastic photographer and connected us with a thoughtful and attentive officiant. They also gave me great advice for my reception location. If I could, I’d give them credit for the absolutely spectacular weather we had on the day of our ceremony. I highly recommend A Beautiful Florida Wedding!!Sent on 03/11/2020
