My now husband and I got married on Clearwater beach. Words can't express how grateful I am to have found Cherished Ceremonies. Vilma is beyond wonderful. She made our wedding day more than I could ever imagine. Very professional, caring and attentive to your every need and concern. She did everything I asked and more in terms of the decor and theme. It brought tears to my eyes when I saw the the decor for my beach ceremony and the reception. It was so beautiful and by far the best ceremony on the beach everyone had seen. We kept getting compliments on how beautiful it was by our guests and strangers that witnessed our wedding. Our officiant Angel and the wedding coordinator Alison were magnificent! All the vendors cherished ceremonies work with are great! Couldn't of asked for a more perfect wedding day.
With Love Tatyana & David

They made our wedding dreams come true!
From the moment I met Vilma, I knew that I found someone who is passionate about what she does. Vilma welcomed me to her office, shared with me the services that she can provide and assured me that I would be able to enjoy my wedding day, while her and her team take care of the logistics. Throughout the planning process, Vilma communicated in a timely manner, took all of my pinterest photo inspiration & asked clarifying questions to ensure that my vision was coming together. Vilma's team carried out our ceremony rehearsal and executed the day-of, without a hitch. And if there was a hitch, we couldn't tell. Everything from our floral designs, modern wedding arch, cocktail tables to our reception centerpieces exceeded our expectations. The flowers were fresh and popped with color. And the ceremony and reception space felt romantic and modern, which is just what we wanted. Thank you, to Vilma and the team at Cherished Ceremonies. We would live our wedding day over, 100 times, thanks to your services and beautiful creations.

We used Cherished Ceremonies as our Day Of Coordinator, and we are so grateful that we found them!! Vilma was amazing in answering all of my questions through email. She helped shape our vision for our wedding day and we were able to rent so many items from her for the day of, which helped us save a ton of money from buying unnecessary decorations! Vilma was very organized and patient with me as I decided what we would need for our wedding. Our Day Of Coordinator was Sharon, and she was seriously amazing!! We began discussions with Sharon about a month out from our Wedding Day. Sharon was extremely organized and helped make sure everything was taken care of. Sharon even met us the day before our wedding at our venue, since she had not done a wedding there before and wanted to see the venue. This helped me show exactly what we wanted for our wedding day. What can I say about the day of, except that everything was even better than I could have ever imagined for my wedding day!! Sharon was seriously amazing - everything was set up even better than I planned (the chairs, decorations, vendors). Throughout the afternoon and evening of the wedding, Sharon made sure that we were doing well and kept checking in on us. After the reception ended, she did a great job of taking care of clean up so that our family did not have to do much. Overall, I was beyond thrilled and amazed by the services we received from both Vilma & Sharon - so thank you both SOOO much for everything!!

Reverend Rodriguez was so wonderful and kind. Before we even booked Cherished Ceremonies, we got on a call and went over everything. I had some very specific requests and he was happy to oblige.

I recently got married on April 30th and Vilma and her team was able to make my vision come true! Hands down one of the best decisions I made was to hire cherished ceremonies for the decor! Vilma was there on the day of the wedding from start to finish and made sure everything was set up correctly. I also used their officiant services and the ceremony was perfect. Thank you for all that you did!

Where to begin? Well, our wedding was two months ago 3/12/2017 and thanks to Vilma and her staff, our wedding was amazing. Just like any other bride I wanted our wedding to be unique, different, fun but still elegant. I thought to have a coordinator/planner was going to be hard as I am used to be hands on. However, Vilma made the planning process smooth as possible. The first time we met I was really nervous because I had the colors but I was not aware of how much effort goes into planning a wedding. She walked me through it and we started brainstorming. I send her pictures of what I wanted and she was able to pull everything that was on the picture to perfection. The décor was spectacular (I used tiffany blue and gray). She responded to my email and calls at any time, she provided suggestions and what would look better. Many vendors nowadays charged for every little thing not included on the initial charge. In the other hand, Vilma is a professional who values her work and the happiness of the couple. Therefore, she was able to add a twist here and there with no charge.
She even helped me picked up a location; mind you that we have seen many venues before but they were all expensive and nothing that appealed to us. The officiant, DJ, and photographer that came included in our package were friendly, motivated, and bilingual which was a plus for us as we had family coming from outside the country.
One thing that I would like to suggest was the coordinator we had throughout our wedding (ceremony & reception) was not really helpful and here is why: We met when I was about to get my makeup done, and every time I asked her a question she would respond as to “she would do that later (because everybody else was getting ready) or she had already taken care of it. When I walked down the aisle I realized that my maid of honor (my sister) was the last one on the row, not to my immediate back (which is how it is supposed to be and how I wanted it to be).

Vilma did such a very nice job! I appreciate her patience with me, as we know wedding planning can be a bit stressful. She exceeded my expectations. Rev.Rodriguez was awesome! Very nice!! Xx

I called Vilma within weeks of the date we wanted to have our wedding. With such short notice she made it happen and we couldn't have asked for anything else! Our wedding ceremony was on Sunset Beach and they handled everything! I was one stress free bride! Thanks so much and Rev. Rodriguez was awesome and so kind! You guys are a great team. Thanks for my fairy tale wedding ceremony! Danny&Milagro

We would highly recommend Rev. Rodriguez to officiate your wedding. He exceeded our expectations with a perfect combination of professionalism and caring.

I recently used Cherished Ceremonies of my altar pieces and wedding flowers. They did an amazing job with these. Our altar pieces were exactly how I had envisioned and asked. They were professional and affordable. I highly recommend them for your floral arrangements.

Rev. Angel was great!! He was very quick to respond to any of our inquiries. The day of the wedding he was very professional and made our day very special. We needed a bilingual ceremony and our ceremony was incredible!!
Thanks for your help and your great service!!

Vilma and Rev. Rodriguez made planning a short notice Tampa wedding from out-of-state stress free. The gazebo location was gorgeously decorated. The officiating was exactly what we wanted. The photographers were creative and made even that part fun for everyone! Everything was flawless. We could not be happier! Thanks again! ~Mary and Matt

From start to finish it was a great experience, from Vilma to Rev. Rodriguez. Seamless!!! Thank you for everything
Lance · Married on 11/27/2015
Rev. Angel did a fantastic job working with our rather complicated script because I wanted a more non-denominational christian wedding. I provided the script and he had it translated perfectly.
He was very professional and flexible with some last minute changes and staying in communication during the process. He was also very good at pacing the ceremony and providing an excellent vibe in his method of speaking.
His bilingual translation of the wedding was very beautiful and provided a very inclusive feel for the guest of the wedding, some of whom did not speak English.
We highly recommend Rev. Angel as a minister for your next bilingual wedding ceremony!
Thanks Rev. Angel!

Sharon was my day of coordinator. She is amazing! She was so well organized and on top of everything and she really listened to everything I wanted and made it happen. My wedding WOULD NOT have happened the way it did without her. I would recommend her to anyone!

Cherished Ceremonies did an excellent job on my wedding. They set-up my decor, provided all my flowers, and set-up and provided my chuppah. From the beginning, Vilma was there to promptly answer any of my questions. Angel was my day-of-coordinator for my ceremony, and Sharon for my reception. They all executed my vision with perfection resulting in a perfect day.
Debbie · Married on 11/06/2015
We wanted a small, personalized service. Cherished Creations, Rev Rodriguez, and Julie and George at Tungsten Photography far exceeded our expectations. Everyone was so nice, quick to respond, and accommodating. We first contacted Vilma on Oct 29. We were married in a perfect ceremony on Nov 6.
Thank you for making our dream come true so beautifully. We would not change a thing about our experience.
Debbie and Mike
