Maite & Paco
Dearest Sira, I am not sure how Maite introduced the idea that we could hire a wedding planner and organized an appointment with you. In our first video call, the ipad started ringing and on the other side of the screen you appeared. We were captivated by your voice as you described to us in wonderful detail how you liked to work and do things, I will never forget phrases like ‘I can create a wedding to exactly suit you’, ‘my work is to get to know you so that I can create the wedding of your dreams’. This is how our amazing, dream wedding began.
After a couple of months during which we didn’t seem to get very far (I am a very nervous person and when I can’t see things happening, I get anxious), the day arrived when we finally got to meet you in person. We visited you so that we could finalise all the details and at last I could see that things were moving and that in fact I had been wrong, you had already done hundreds of things for us, without me even noticing…
When the week of our wedding arrived, everyone asked us whether we were nervous and the truth is we weren’t because you were there at work behind the scenes. The word ‘professional’ does you no justice! Two days before the wedding the catastrophe started: we had designed a wedding that was to be completely open air, and then the weather changed! The weather reports said it was going to rain and it did! Normally this would have been the moment when I would have had a panic attack as everything looked as though it was going down the drain, but it wasn’t like that. You had spent months helping us and had imparted such a sense of tranquillity and confidence during this time that I can honestly say that we didn’t panic or even feel worried. When our guests said to us “Oh such a shame that the weather is like this!”, I could respond “To bad weather you have to show good face” and it felt easy to be so positive because I knew that we could rely on someone who is the best of the best to resolve our problems.
The night before the wedding we organized two dinners, one for our adult guests and one for the children. The dinner for our adult guests went off with out a hitch but the dinner for the children… we sent poor Carolina crazy but there she was, always on the other end of the telephone, laughing and ready to help. Thank you Carolina! Of course, everything turned out perfectly.
And then the most amazing day I have ever experienced finally arrived. To all of the professionals that we worked with, I have to say THANK YOU; it was a pleasure to work with people such as you, what a blessing! As soon as we arrived, the magic started, everything was so beautiful! Dearest Sira, I am not sure how you did it but you got into our heads and managed to make the wedding of our dreams come true, or even better! The rain didn’t matter, or the cold, nothing mattered…you worked your magic and we all had the time of our lives. I don’t have the words to describe how wonderful it was. The only thing I can say is… Sira, we love you! You are the best in the world and will always hold a special place in our hearts. If there is a dream world, you are the fairy godmother who makes those dreams come true! You are the reason that my wedding was such a success, you didn’t take a singe false step or make a single bad decision. You had a good reason for everything you did and even though we had to wait until the day of our wedding to see the results, there was nothing about our wedding day that could have been improved. Five days afterwards I was still floating in the fantastic cloud that you had created. We will always be grateful to you, without you or you amazing team of professionals, our day would never have been as wonderful. You really are the best, we love you and would recommend you to anyone, a couple can trust you with their eyes closed. We enjoyed every moment with you from the very first video call…you will always be a part of our lives, thank you, thank you and thank you again.
