    Wonderful Wedding Experience

    One of my dearest friends recently married in Bermuda and she hired Yolanda to be her wedding coordinator. What good luck! From the beginning of our trip to the reluctant return to the airport, Yolanda took care of all of us. We all truly felt as if Yolanda had taken us under her very competent wing from our first meeting. She is organized, thorough, efficient, considerate and one funny lady. If you retain Yolanda as a wedding coordinator, your special day will be easy and you can focus on relaxing and enjoying your wedding!

    Thanks, Yolanda, for making Michele and Robert's wedding such a marvelous event!

    Yolanda went WAY above the call of duty!

    We were married in Bermuda last July. She handled all the wedding arrangements so that I didn't have to worry about anything. Yolanda went WAY above the call of duty when the owner of the house we rented for us and our entire party decided to tell us one week before the wedding that the house was not rent-able. The owner claimed there was a burst pipe but when Yolanda went to the house she found there was no such problem (our belief is that the owner was going to rent the house for more money to someone else). Yolanda handled the entire situation and held the owner to our agreement. I wish I had been a fly on the wall when THAT conversation happened! LOL We'll be going back to Bermuda next year and we are looking forward to seeing Yolanda again.

    Planning a wedding in Bermuda from the US was quite the challenge. Yolanda was so incredibly helpful with getting all my questions answered and providing support whenever/however it was needed. She is such a nice person and truly cares about her clients and people in general. She responded to all my emails, questions, calls, etc. quickly and made me feel at ease when the wedding date came closer. I highly recommend Yolanda as a wedding planner/coordinator!

    Yolanda is amazing, patient and very cool. We decided to have a destination wedding in less than 12 weeks, making the decision in May of 2015 to be married in August of 2015, coming into Bermuda on a cruise ship. I am blessed to have have found Yolanda, she understood what type of wedding I imagined and she made it happen! I had never been to Bermuda and had no idea what to expect planning a destination wedding so I had to rely heavily on Yolanda's recommendations. Yolanda is an earth angel! Our guests all said it was the best wedding they had been to! We had the most memorable event! She went above and beyond throughout the entire process from the beginning, during and after the wedding! We hope to see you again Yolanda next time we visit your wonderful island! We along with our family and friends love you!! XXX

    To Have and to Hold gave us the dream wedding we never knew we would have. Planning a wedding you hope it turns out nice, but when we actually had the event it was more beautiful than we could have imagined. We were tourists going to have a destination wedding and we didn't have time to check out the vendors beforehand. So we had to trust Yolanda at To Have and to Hold for everything. She was wonderful. We (and the guests) were beyond pleased at everything from the beach, food, steel pan player, photographer, to the transportation. All we had to do was provide our vision and she made it happen. She offered her opinion only when asked and did not try to sell us any services we hadn't included in our vision. In addition, she was very prompt at responding to emails, and made herself available when we needed to communicate via telephone, being it last minute or late at night for her. She went above and beyond to help us create a beautiful wedding and we know she truely cared that we were happy (for example, in addition to our cake, she had two special cupcakes made for us with the layer of cake that would be saved for our 1 year anniversary). We would absolutely hire her and her company again if we had the pleasure to need to plan another event in Bermuda.

    I have nothing bad to say. We had a nice simple wedding on the beach. Even the weather held off. Sunshine during the wedding and down poor rain just minutes after we were done with our photos. I couldn't have asked for more.

    To Have and To Hold Wedding & Event Planning , by far was one of the best wedding planners we've encountered in Bermuda. Owner Yolanda, was very accommodating, patient, and forthcoming with all pricing. Yolanda would even fight for us in terms of negotiating prices lower for us from contracted vendors from transportation to entertainment. We felt like she was a direct extension of us. Yolanda would not accept mediocre answers or slow turnaround from vendors. We only flew to Bermuda one time to meet with the company and survey and pick the wedding site. After that we never had to go back because what we could not see Yolanda took a picture for us, what we did not know she found out. Yolanda by far was extremely flexible, professional and very responsive. Our wedding was held on April 22, 2014 on the pink sand beaches of Bermuda and we cannot thank To Have and To Hold Wedding & Event Planning enough for their great quality of service. Thank you again... our wedding can be viewed at www.weddingwire.com/RonnieandSheba.

    Thank you again Yolanda for everything,

    Ronnie & Dr. Sheba Dunston

    My husband and I were so pleased with our wedding coordinator Yolanda. We were married in Bermuda and we arrived by cruise ship. While out to sea and in route to Bermuda a tropical storm was brewing in the ocean. Our cruise ship captain made a last minute decision to only stay 12 hours in port,we were due to get married the next full day on land. To say we were stressed and thought our wedding in Bermuda was never going to happen was understatement. Yolanda changed all the arrangements in 2 hours and we had the most beautiful,romantic and lavish wedding for us and our 20 guest. Everything we had planned was there except the beach. It has been a year now and every time we retell our wedding adventure people can't believe how our wedding planner rescheduled a wedding in 2 hours. We had
    transportation,singer,minister,flowers,catered food and beverages for all our guest. I wouldn't have known
    were to start.
    By far the best experience of our lives and we owe it all to Yolanda.

    Yolanda was amazing! We couldn't have pulled off our wedding with out her. We planned it a month before it happened. She got back to me immediately on all communications. At the last minute we had to change our venue due to the weather. She had it all figured out and finalized within 10 minutes. We had an incredible venue, a wonderful minister, all at a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend Yolanda.

    Yolanda was awesome!! A true profession as a wedding planner. We used Yolanda services for our wedding day, however, she was with us through every little detail up until our wedding. She was very helpful, punctual, reliable, friendly and provides exceptional and professional service.

    We would recommend Yolanda to any future couples looking to get married to assist them with their wedding planning.

    Yolanda was excellent, easy to work with and had an eye for detail. She was very receptive to the simple elegance atmosphere. She had access to everything I needed from invitation to favors. She orchestrated in the background making the day stress free and thoroughly enjoyable. It was unforgettable and a day never to be forgotten.
