Dream come true
Trusted partner in planning your big day.
I am especially grateful that Carmen was able to introduce amazing vendors across a variety of price points during the process, it is so important as budget begin to accumulate that you have a trusted advisor to guide you through vendor selection and helping manage expectations for the quality of service at various price points.
Overall - Carmen is someone that I trust wholeheartedly during the wedding planning process and I had zero ounce of doubt that Carmen and her team would come through to deliver the wedding of my dreams. I would recommend Carmen to all the brides out there looking for a partner in wedding planning!
Best decision we made!!
Carmen, will help with your wedding planning process
We first met Carmen in January 2019 and my husband and I felt an immediate connection as
she stood by us until we finally said our I Dos in April 2022 because COVID-19 delayed our wedding two times!
Appreciative of this connection as Carmen was able to help us re-organize and re-book all of our existing vendors each and every time we changed our wedding date.
Due to the nature of COVID-19 my husband and I didn’t even know if we would have our wedding so naturally, we would email Carmen every chance we got and she was so diligent, reassuring, and patient with us. Not to mention she is sensible, fair, and has an optimistic attitude.
What also kept me at ease during the whole wedding process was this amazing google doc spreadsheet that Carmen created. Every detail to names and telephone numbers of the wedding party + wedding vendors, payment schedules, timing of events, etc. It was immaculate!
On the day of our wedding everything went smoothly. Carmen took a video of my husband and I’s first look and I honestly tear up every time I watch it. It’s one of my favourite videos of the day and I am grateful she captured that moment for us.
I would definitely recommend DevotedToYou to help you plan your beautiful wedding!
Dream Wedding Achieved
Initially, I was against a wedding planner. "I have planned parties before, how hard can this be?" Having been through it now, I am thankful that we got Carmen. There are so many details involved and decisions to make, that I would not have thought of. Carmen was always available for any questions that my wife and I had. Carmen also has cultivated strong relationships with key wedding vendors (photographer, videographer, florist/decor etc) and was able leverage those relationships to help us achieve my wife's dream wedding.
We have since referred Carmen to two other couples that were extremely pleased with their weddings as well.
If you are getting married: 1. Get a wedding planner / day of coordinator at the very least. 2. Hire Carmen. We are incredibly grateful for Carmen's hardwork to make our wedding a success.
Why to be cautious of videographer Konrad Czystowski, if recommended
I'm writing this to share our experience...so Konrad CZYSTOWSKI, I think he goes by Freshsox, but there's no reviews for his business and he's missing on all social media as he works off of referrals. In retrospect, that should raise alarm bells. A good videographer who cares about clients would open themselves up to feedback online, in addition to being referred. He has closed those channels and from our experience, we can see why. He did Carmen's wedding for a discount and offered us a rate of $5k for an 8 min highlight reel and 1 min trailer, which apparently is a discount, but who knows as rates are never posted in the wedding industry. However, after Covid cancelled our wedding and we were looking at new options, he took advantage of the situation. First he told us, he will raise our rates if we postpone, but he doesn't know by how much. In my opinion, this is a sign that he does NOT have his business together or care about his clients to do this during a PANDEMIC. Finally, he came back and said he wanted to charge us $1000 more...a full 20% surcharge above our $5k cash deal because we were unlucky enough to have our wedding cancelled by covid. He also said most of the vendors he talks to also is doing this, even though the vendors that I hand selected did not and were wonderful during this time. However, he was a referral from Carmen. He was dismissive when we tried to meet him halfway. After 2 months of stress and waiting for him to respond to our emails or of him avoiding our calls, he decides we don't deserve our money back and is trying to keep our $2500 deposit. Clearly after what he has done, he created a situation in which it was impossible to trust him or want to have him on an important day like our wedding.
It's a difficult situation for all of us, but he chose to make it even more difficult. I wont go into the specifics, but he's not returning our $2500.
Based on this circumstance we are all in, his contract requires that he returns our deposit if he can't perform due to an unforeseeable situation like a pandemic, but based on what we've seen, his biggest focus is money not how clients feel about what he's doing.
Our learnings are, even if you are referred by someone, or they are touted as a 'pro' in the industry, it's hard to trust someone if they don't have real reviews. Honestly...we wish we were given better choices of videographers during the selection process. He said he shot for a Raptor in Miami and insinuated it was Chris Bosh to help win our business, but we never validated this. It's easy for people to say whatever when they don't have reviews or the work posted publicly. For your wedding, don't just look at the video portfolio, but keep in mind who you're hiring. It's that whole genius, but a jerk notion. You want to work with someone who is a genius, but also trustworthy and wont take advantage or is tough to work with during the worst of times. Because who know what can happen these days.
Carmen exceed my expectations
Amazing experience with Carmen
The wedding day came out perfectly, and it was exactly what I dreaming for. We hired Carmen as month of coordinator. Because we would like to design our wedding by ourselves, and Carmen shared lots of good advice and thoughts with us. We believe hiring Carmen was one of our best decision we made for.
Love you Carmen!
