Dream Wedding at Dreams Punta Cana
We had a wonderful experience working with Zerlene as our destination wedding planner! She worked tirelessly for nearly a year to help us plan, design and execute a stunning dream destination wedding in paradise. We truly could not have done it without her.Sent on 12/03/2018
It is a great benefit to plan and book a destination wedding and vacation with someone who is both an event planner and a travel agent! She is so knowledgeable about flight prices, airlines and resorts (as well as perks for the bride and groom and how the couple might best use them). She communicated directly with all of our guests individually and as a group, answered everyone’s questions, and helped book all flights and reservations.
Zerlene kept us on schedule and on budget, helping us account for additional costs and “extras”, and helped us choose the wedding package that best and most appropriately suited our needs. She sought clarification from, and worked with, the wedding co-ordinator at the resort to ensure that we got everything (down to the smallest detail) we ordered and planned. She checked in with us while we were away twice to see how things were going (including the day of the wedding) to see if there was anything else she could do from afar. The result? A breathtakingly beautiful sunset ceremony and outdoor evening reception under the stars surrounded by lush gardens, palm trees and other greenery, and candlelight our guests continue to rave about!
It was so much fun to work with Zerlene because of the energy and creativity she brings and the passion she has for what she does. She helped alleviate the stresses of wedding planning from afar, especially amid times of uncertainly or when things might not go according to plan. She helped us stay the course amid uncharted waters when the Caribbean experienced its worst tropical storms and hurricanes in decades within a month of our wedding. She regularly communicated with the resort to check its status, as well as began contingency planning in the even that we needed to switch dates, flights, locations and resorts.
We highly recommend this truly gifted, organized, experienced, efficient, proficient, creative wedding planner and a consummate professional. Thank you so much, Zerlene, for helping us create wonderful memories we will cherish for years to come!

Valentine Wedding 2017
We lucked out in finding Zerlene to help us plan our wedding in Punta Cana! She was so amazing to work with! Zerlene is friendly, knowledgeable and very responsive. And what we truly appreciated was her honesty and integrity. She helps you to plan the wedding YOU want, whether lavish or conservative. Our wedding was perfect in every way, and our family and guests also agree. We couldn't have asked for better!Sent on 31/03/2018
