Highly, highly recommend Andrea! Our event was absolutely perfect!
We hired Andrea to plan two events to celebrate our 2oth wedding anniversary parties in Sayulita. Andrea got a quick sense of our style and vision and brought forward so many creative ideas to make our events special. Her resources and connections made our events so perfect - from flowers, to food, to the welcome bag ideas, table settings, music, you name it. When we needed something last minute, Andrea was responsive and calm. I didn't want any work on my plate for these events and Andrea made it so easy for us to enjoy ourselves. She's a consummate professional and I'd hire her again without hesitation.

Beyond anything I could have imagined - truly incredible.
Andrea helped us plan our wedding that took place in late February 2016. She was nothing short of incredible throughout the entire process. My (now) husband and I have been together for many years (decade plus), and when we finally decided to get married, we were focused on making it a fun long weekend for our close friends and family. However, we didn't have a clear vision of what we wanted the wedding to be like. Andrea was not only fun and warm and positive, but she managed to take our vague ideas of what we wanted the weekend to be like and turn them into a perfectly delivered package that exceeded all of our expectations. I mean it very sincerely when I say I can't imagine our wedding without her.

One of the most remarkable things about planning a wedding with Andrea is that she takes the time to get to know you, and learn about what's important to you, and then she comes up with endless ideas for different ways you could pull those elements into your wedding. She focuses on translating the "you" into the wedding plan, and is creative and talented and knowledgeable enough to do so. If you have a theme, she'll come up with creative ways to infuse it into the celebration. If you just have a feeling in mind, she'll suggest different touches that will help evoke it. For every part of our wedding, she helped think up different options, which she would then explain to us so that we could choose the one that felt best. Then she managed, tracked, and monitored the execution from start to finish. We ended up with a wedding that was everything we hoped for, but couldn't have come up with on our own - amazing food and great drinks (her recommendation), fabulous music both live and DJed (her suggestions), gorgeous and elegant decor and setup (her designs), and countless little touches that everyone noticed and commented on. I can't tell you how many little things she added that, day of, made the difference between a nice event and an extraordinary one. This was true of the rehearsal dinner as well.

I also have to emphasize how fantastic Andrea is to work with. She's incredibly responsive - I was the only cause of any slow-downs in our planning, she always (I mean it, always) responded to any email (no matter how long) within a day. She's extremely organized - she managed ALL of the details of planning, all of the communications with vendors and such, and all the payments before, during, and after. She offered suggestions and recommendations, but was never even remotely pushy. As I mentioned above, she is a fabulous blend of warm, supportive, talented, and exceedingly creative. She's also funny and kind and delightful to hang out with. She made the wedding planning process enjoyable, fun, and stress-free, which after asking around, seems very much the exception!

I don't ever plan on getting married again :-) but I am already thinking about what sort of reunion or anniversary events we could plan. And if/when I do, the very first thing I'll do is see if Andrea is available to help. I can't (or don't want to) imagine what our wedding would have been like without her.

I very sincerely think Andrea is truly exceptional, and that you'll be lucky to work with her if she's available for your event. Regardless of how much you're spending, you want your event to be the best it can be, and she's incredible at making that happen. I can't thank her enough for making our wedding out of this world.

Amazing! We didn't worry about a thing and our wedding was magical!
Andrea is a consummate professional and put together amazing flowers, lighting, music, and a gorgeous venue for us. There were extra touches that we weren't even expecting that made our day exceptionally special. I would recommend Andrea and team to anyone, even someone who doesn't think they need a coordinator. Truly remarkable.

Wedding in Paradise!
Andrea was AMAZING. My husband and I do a great deal of entertaining and choosing a wedding planner for our daughter's wedding was important. Andrea exceeded our expectations. First it was great she is English speaking, then she also had all of the connections in Sayulita to get the best vendors. Her recommendations for food, flowers, hair and music could not have been better. She helped with welcome bags, golf carts, decorations and countless details.
She also fully took on the welcome party and rehearsal dinner making them memorable parties. She is not only organized but really really creative. Her extra touches make the events truly special for your guests. We will never forget the excellent job she did in making the wedding the special event for a special couple.

Best decision we ever made! You are one high quality lady Andrea!
We would recommend Andrea and her team to anyone planning a wedding or any special event! Being detailed and efficient is extremely important and Andrea is both. But, when planning a wedding I believe it is more important to find a true partner and someone that is 100% invested in your day, your memories and your experience. Andrea does all of this and more. She is skilled at picking up on the pieces of your wedding that truly mean the most to you and highlighting those moments. She was quick to think on her feet! When our original ceremony location needed some major clean-up she had ideas for back-up venues as well as a plan in place to get the original spot cleaned and ceremony ready in less than 24 hours. It was absolutely beautiful when we walked into it on our wedding day!! I had no doubts and always felt good about leaving things in her very capable hands. I knew she would make decisions with our vision and wishes as her priority. Andrea was always thinking ahead and making sure that every detail was covered. Our family couldn't stop commenting on how wonderful her and her staff was! Thank you so much Cheryl...you were amazing!! I was not disappointed in any of the vendors she recommended and our reception would not have been the same without our unbelievable bartender Miguel!
Andrea, Thank you for surrounding yourself with such high quality, amazing people. And speaking of...If you are lucky enough to have Gabbi officiate your ceremony you will be nothing short of blessed. He was a true hero for us.
We cannot thank you enough!!
Love,
Erin, Trevor, Charlie & Payton

Amazing Wedding Perfection.
I came across Andrea and Sayulita Dream Weddings via some online research. I had been to Sayulita a handful of times prior to deciding to hold our 70+ person wedding in this amazing pueblo- but never had a chance to actually tour the wedding location sites. Andrea did an amazing job with everything from helping me decide on the venue for the wedding, reception and welcome party to organizing transportation and accommodations for myself and guests. She went above and beyond in helping bring our (quite specific) vision for our wedding day to life through the detailed selection of flowers, tables, chairs, photographer, food, lighting, DJ, live music....the list goes on. I would have been lost (or gone crazy) if it weren't for Andrea and her incredible staff. Her communication is professional and timely and her presence warm. I feel she really got to know me through the planning process and by the time the big day came around- she blew me away with how truly beautiful and warm the event space looked. I can't recommend her and her team enough! My guests can't stop talking about all the little details that sometimes get lost in destination weddings and how welcome and taken care of they felt the entire time.
If you are looking to hold a small event in or around Sayulita- or haul friends and family from all around the world to watch you get married in paradise like I did- Sayulita Dream Weddings will help make the process seamless. Both my husband and I agree that if we had (got) to do it all over again, we wouldn't change a thing....

Many thanks to Andrea and her crew!

Amazing Experience - Couldn't Have Gone Better!
My wife and I can't speak highly enough about Andrea of Sayulita Dream Weddings. She is incredibly professional, easy going and, most importantly, truly vested in your experience. She takes pride in her work and will go through great lengths to make sure your day is just how you imagine it, and better. Since we could go on and on about Sayulita Dream Weddings, here are the top reasons why we recommend Sayulita Dream Weddings:

1) Andrea is always available, via phone, email, etc. If she was going out of town, she would make sure to notify us well in advance.
2) Andrea is from the US but also speaks Spanish fluently. There were zero issues related to language barriers between us, Andrea and our vendors.
3) Andrea is well connected in Sayulita and knows of many suppliers. She has planned a countless number of weddings. She has a great eye for design of your wedding. That said, she won't invade your personal tastes and interests and will listen to you.
4) Not only will Andrea be your wedding planner, she will also help to manage your wedding week. She will help coordinate transportation, the welcome pary, rehearsal, etc. It was incredibly helpful to have her on the ground in Sayulita at all times to assist.
5) The actual wedding! Everything was gorgeous and meticulously laid out. Drinks were ready right when our guests arrived, the bar was fully staffed, Don Pedros was ready to go, the DJ was ready, our guitarist in action, etc. Not a single hiccup occurred.
6) Overall, my wife and I never worried about anything for a single second during the day of our wedding. All of our vendors were executing at top notch speed and precision, the timing for everything was immaculate. We never needed to check with Andrea on anything - she was always on top of everything and completely aware of what was going on.

Thank you Andrea for a perfect wedding week and day! - Matt & Elizabeth

Exceeded our expectations! So thankful we found Sayulita Dream Weddings!
From the initial meeting we could tell that Andrea was detail oriented and quickly understood the style and tone that we wanted for our wedding. Throughout the planning process Andrea was great about communicating with us and handling all of the details in the background (she clearly has a lot of local knowledge and relationships which proved invaluable to us).
The end result was beautiful and just what we had hoped for.

We both expected to be way more stressed out on our wedding day but thanks to Andrea (and her crew) we were relaxed at the altar and thus able to focus on each other, our friends, and family on our wedding day. We HIGHLY recommend Sayulita Dream Weddings!

She took the weight of planning a wedding off our shoulders and executed it way beyond our expectations.

Every last minute detail and change to our plans was quickly fixed or executed beyond what we could of imagined. The wedding week events and wedding were unbelievable!!!
