Im a passionate wedding planner ready to make dreams come true with more than 6 years in the business of destination weddings. I have worked with many beautiful international couples that love the beach as much as I do. I have also worked in different states, and different climates which bring new challenges. I started in Guadalajara working for a company, I then decided to go out on my own, and now most of the weddings i work are in Nayarit.

9. Can you share a happy memory with a client?
Our clients always tell us how grateful they are for us taking such care of all the meticulous details that could easily go unnoticed but in fact, are what really make that extra difference.
I remember at a beach wedding where hundreds of baby turtle hatchlings started to appear, so we decided to turn all of the event sound and lighting off. The whole wedding party came to watch the turtles venture off into the ocean. This was a very special and spontaneous moment that i'm sure the bride and groom as well as the wedding guests will treasure forever.
10. Is there anything special that you want to share?
I have always believed that each wedding is unique, and as a wedding planner, I strive to create the most special moments for our clients, while incorporating their essence into their special day.
