Wedding Renewal Key Largo
Ivette and Karla....there aren’t enough characters available in this review to fully impart what they did, not only for my Husband and I, but also for our guests. I selected Ivette at the last minute (2weeks prior) to our wedding, and her patience, concern and “make it happen” demeanor kept me sane and focused. Her knowledge on not only Weddings and festive events is equal to her knowledge of the Islands, the other vendors and the history of the area. Ivette was consistent in pointing out ways we could save money, and provided pieces and decorative items from her own personal collection. Ivette also assisted me in selecting other vendors, and subtly pointing out ones that I am sure were not “recommendable” lol. What I like is that she was professional in doing so, and didn’t speak negative at any time about any of the vendors. At the last minute, I realized that while I had ordered bouquets for my bridesmaids, I didn’t order one for myself and she promptly ordered fresh flowers and made an exquisite one on the spot. Karla demeanor during the preparing to walk down the aisle and revelry was constantly praised by my mother, my Aunts and other guests. Karla made sure everyone came to her, for any concern I was told and later realized. My Husband and I only focus because of her diligence was to enjoy our guests and each other.
These two classy, genuine ladies have found their natural calling, taking care of people on one of the most memorable days of their lives.Sent on 01/17/2020

Cant say enough
I cant say enough about Ivette. She's a problem solver, quick thinker and an overall amazing human. She is worth every penny. We had a thousand things go wrong during our planning process and she was able to help us resolve everything. I was able to relax and enjoy our day knowing that she would handle everything. I am so glad that we hired her.Sent on 01/20/2020

Words can't fully explain how amazing Ivette is. My fiance (now wife) and I had Ivette plan our wedding and she exceeded our expectations. We gave her bits and pieces of information and she worked her magic and made it better than we imagined. Whatever your expectations are for your wedding, Ivette will exceed them and make them better than you could ever picture. Easy to talk to, plan with, and work with. Ivette makes dreams come true.Sent on 01/04/2020

We love Ivette!
Ivette is the absolute BEST! Where do I even start with her? .. she did everything to make sure my wedding went smoothly. She even helped me plan the entire wedding months before it even took place. When the wind picked up and she knew the plastics wouldn’t stay, she made a quick decision to rent ceramics to make sure everything was perfect. My wedding would not have been possible without Ivette. I became so close to her, when we would hang up from chatting I would say, “I love you!” She became a part of our family from the day we booked her. This women has no limitations! She even ordered last minute decorations that I completely forgot about that she remembered 2 days before the wedding. She saved us a TON of money on food that we were able to serve the food at the reception, wedding, and breakfast the day after the wedding. Ivette is beyond amazing and I just want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day/weekend unforgettable. We love you!Sent on 11/18/2019

Ivette is AMAZING!!
My wedding was an absolute dream, all because of Ivette. Her attention to detail, willingness to please, and love for her job all contributed to our PERFECT Florida Keys wedding. Couldn’t imagine doing it without her, and know our special day was extra special because of her! If you have the chance to use her, I promise you will not be let down!Sent on 10/21/2019

Much more the a "Day Of" Coordinator
She began helping me plan from the very beginning. Spent 45 minutes on the phone with me and was very attentive to every phone call and text. Her team was priceless and helped out a ton! Wedding day was very chaotic but it all came together beautifully. Much more then a "day of" coordinator. Thank-you!Sent on 04/12/2019

Best money spent!
Ivette and her team are the absolute best. Absolutely amazing! Down to earth, organized and totally there for you every step of the way. I went into our wedding planning thinking I wouldn’t hire a “wedding planner” and we (my mother, sister, and I) could just do it all ourselves. Quickly realizing weddings are not simple (no matter how basic you want them to be) my mom started to look around. Ivette came highly recommended so my mom decided we would go with her, AND SHE DID NOT DISAPPOINT! When I was stressed and upset worrying about all the tiny details, Ivette made me excited again because she had it all covered. Any question or issue I had, she had an answer. Even the things I said I would get, and ended up forgetting, she found a way to make it happen. Ivette and her team made my entire wedding day a breeze and I truly owe my special day to her. There aren’t enough thank you’s in the world to tell her! ❤️Sent on 05/23/2019

The Savior For Our Wedding
Ivette was an amazing coordinator! She was available at all times of the hour and focused on even the minor details in scheduling, decoration, and timing of our wedding! And she covered things that we never would have thought about, but needed for our wedding. She decorated our wedding better than we ever dreamed of! Our big day would not have gone nearly as smoothly without her. We are forever grateful for everything she did for us!Sent on 04/06/2019

A Dream Come True
Ivette and her team at Florida Keys Day Of Coordinator were an absolute joy to work with. I did not use a wedding planner and at times this can be very stressful. Florida Keys Day of Coordinator and Ivette were so much more than a day of wedding coordinator to us. Ivette always gave me excellent advice and listened to me rant on and on about every small detail, all while taking notes and asking questions to make sure she was able to make the day flow PERFECTLY. She kept track of my contacts, she communicated with the vendors, she designed my timeline, and she made me feel confident that our big day was going to be just as wonderful (better) than I had imagined. Once we arrived in Key Largo, Ivette met with us to do a walk through and go over any last minute details. On the morning of the wedding, Ivette continued to check in with me to assure me that everything was going perfectly. What can I say but WOW. To see your vision come to life is the absolute best feeling. Our wedding day was beyond my expectations. Every detail was executed perfectly. We had a large bridal party (24 people), and Ivette made sure that they were where they needed to be at the correct time. And let me tell you they were a wild bunch! Every guest that we spoke with said it was the best wedding they have ever been too. Thank you so much Ivette and team for EVERYTHING! I am happy to have walked away from my wedding day with a friend.
All of our love, McKenzie and Sean SchnitzerSent on 03/14/2019

Wonderful, attentive service!
Ivette was an absolutely angel to us! We had a beautiful wedding on a private island in Conch Key and choosing a private venue came with a host of logistical challenges. Ivette took care of everything: coordinating with vendors, ensuring our timeline, and making decisions when needed. She allowed my husband and I to enjoy every moment of the wedding and shielded us from any hiccups that may have occurred. She is great at communicating, eager, attentive, and honest. Our day was perfect because she was a part of it. I strongly and whole-heartly recommend Ivette to be your wedding planner!Sent on 03/05/2019

Ivette was amazing!! She is such a hard worker and so willing to help with anything that needed. I didn't have to worry about anything that day because she took care of every detail If I was stressed or didn't know how to handle something, I knew I could count on Ivette to fix or solve, whatever the issue was. Truly she was very hardworking, honest, friendly, professional person that was a pleasure to have and also a great help to have on my wedding day. I don't think I could have done it without her help! Ivette is a must use coordinator!!Sent on 06/11/2018

Ivette was extremely helpful with planning our destination wedding. She really went above and beyond as a day of coordinator by making sure that everything was in place and meeting the staff at our venue multiple times before our wedding. Ivette was also helpful with her checklists to make sure that everything was covered but she was also very respectful of our minimalist vision.Sent on 04/09/2018
Luisy · Married on 02/24/2018
Ivette saved our wedding in so many ways. My venue got cancelled about 30 hours prior to the day and she helped us find an even better location that was miraculously available. She was very patient and helpful with us from start to finish, shared great ideas and went the extra mile to make sure every little detail was taken care of. Everything turned out amazing.Sent on 03/09/2018

I cannot express how wonderful Ivette is! She helped so much with everything we needed... she even helped with the things we didn't know we needed! She is attentive, patient and reliable which are truly qualities you should seek out when hiring a Day-Of Coordinator. She made sure everything was executed as discussed and we are so grateful for her participation in our special day. Having her there really put my mind at ease and let me focus on enjoying every moment of the best day of my life.Sent on 01/17/2018
