Miracle worker!
Andrea is the definition of "above and beyond." I cannot imagine anyone better suited for the job.

First off - I want to emphasize how crucial having a planner is to the overall success of your big day. You are making an investment in your own sanity and happiness during your wedding - you are paying so that you (and your families & friends) do not have to lift a finger when you arrive. You are paying so that you can spend the morning swimming and sunbathing and drinking mimosas (or margaritas!) rather than setting up chairs, stressing about whether you have enough extension cords, and where the pen is for the guest book (and how to even find a pen, because you're in Mexico and can't even find your way to the venue). There are SO many teeny tiny details that can uproot your entire day, especially for a destination wedding, and by investing in someone as talented as Andrea, you will never have to worry about anything -- and your mom and sister will be able to go home when the party ends, rather than staying all night to clean up. The peace of mind alone is worth 3x what Andrea charges.

Secondly - I should note that choosing a planner was the most difficult part for us. Every couple writes raving reviews of their planner because, duh, who wouldn't - they helped with the best day of your lives! But at the same time, it makes it difficult for couples to decipher who's the best. And on top of that, you can't really judge a planner by the photos of previous weddings (which is exactly what I was inclined to do) because those weddings are a reflection each bride's style, and it's not necessarily the planner's taste/style. They just have to ensure they can execute on what YOU want. All of this makes it truly one of the most difficult decisions to make, so let me give a few detailed reasons why Andrea IS the best of them all:

1. Not ONE thing went wrong on our wedding day (well, at least that I know of)

I'm not joking - I was actually concerned because I didn't have any concerns. Andrea only approached me once that day with a "change of plans" which was that the caterer didn't have tuna available for the tuna sashimi hors d'oeuvres (one of five hors d'oeuvres) and they needed to swap it out for a different item. All I could do was give her a blank stare and laugh as I saw the worry in her face. I know this is a lot of detail, but seriously, if that's the only thing that goes "wrong" on your wedding day, you've either got some crazy good juju, or a crazy good wedding planner.

2. She fills in all of the gaps - and made my Pinterest dreams come to life

We were so wrapped up in the planning of the wedding day that we pretty much neglected the Welcome Party (on the Thursday before our Saturday wedding). We knew where we were going, and that there would be a donkey and some food and tables and chairs there - but that's about it. We showed up after a day of lounging and swimming (doing absolutely NO work for this party) and were in absolute awe - she brought in full decor, lights, perfectly styled flowers (thanks to Mireya @ Flor Mimo) and once again went above and beyond. Every minor detail was thought out, even our drinks were festive with a colorful Mexico theme and flowers floating on top. I didn't think the wedding could top that party, but indeed - she outdid herself again!

Same goes for our Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner. I had 12 bridesmaids, my husband had 10 groomsmen; needless to say that coordinating that group (plus their dates) was not an easy task. It required scheduled pickups to and from our houses on the North side of town, planning yet another full-fledged event with beautiful decor and food (she had to do this 3 days in a row with the welcome party, rehearsal, and wedding), and even remembering to bring a megaphone to the rehearsal so that we could hear over crashing waves in the background. Andrea has literally thought of everything -- her experience is clear and her ability to create something beautiful from your vision is unmatched.

3. She's down to business and down to be honest

Andrea is a no-BS planner in the best kind of way. We toured multiple venues and she was incredibly clear with all of the pros, cons, and concerns: It's important to note that we chose an especially challenging venue: it's more or less in the jungle, set on uneven ground (which poses challenges for setup), no cell reception, limited power supply, etc. The tradeoff, of course, is that it's absolutely stunning. Andrea made us aware of everything that could go wrong, but always painted it in a positive light - for example: if it were to rain heavily in days prior to the wedding, it was highly likely we'd have a dirty beach for the ceremony and muddy grass for the reception. She'd say, "That's no big deal as long as we're prepared - we can hire a crew to cleanup and comb the beach, and we can put palm mats down on the grass where people are walking." She made us aware of what costs any of these potential hiccups would incur so that we could weigh whether or not they'd be deal breakers. The little details like these made us so much more comfortable in the weeks approaching the wedding, knowing that Andrea always had a backup plan.

4. She knows every single vendor, and only works with the best

The scary part about this novel of a review is that I could do the same with every vendor Andrea pointed us to (caterer, florist, photographer, makeup artist, and more). Andrea not only knows these vendors well, but she's great friends with them, too. I can't tell you how many times we heard, "Andrea is the best, she really knows what she's doing" during our wedding. Right out of the gates, she provided us a list of options for every single vendor we'd have to choose. She gave feedback on their styles, their communication methods, and how she felt they'd align with our vision. This was the most crucial part of the planning process - getting direction when there are so many options to choose from - and I can confidently say that we felt that we chose the right person for the job in every single scenario, thanks to Andrea's guidance.

5. She genuinely cares.

I know for a fact that Andrea has organized hundreds of events, probably on a grander scale and with larger budgets, and yet my husband and I still feel like we were her most important clients.

The perfect example of this: on the night before our welcome party, I came down with what seemed like a pretty serious bug. As anyone considering a Mexico wedding knows, you run the risk of someone getting sick (but let me reassure you that I would do it over and over again, and it is NOT a reason to shy away from the destination wedding!). I was worried that if I didn't nip it in the bud, I'd be sick for the event and potentially even the wedding in a few days. Out of desperation, I texted Andrea at 4 am, assuming she'd reply in the morning, but sure enough - she responded right away. Let me outline what she did for me: 1) She pointed me to an urgent care facility, but also said she didn't think I'd need it (which I'm thankful for, saving any additional costs). 2) She sent her family doctor to my house early in the morning - he drove up in a golf cart carrying all of the medical equipment, medications, etc. that I'd need. 3) She sent an accupressurist my way who also did red light therapy?! 4) She made homemade bone broth and brought it to our house. I mean seriously, come on, she made bone broth - if that's not above and beyond, I don't know what is.

End result: I was cured within 12 hours and drinking margaritas by the time of the party.

The moral of the story is that Andrea went out of her way to ensure that every single detail of not just our wedding, but our entire WEEK in Mexico was perfect, and that there was never a lapse in fun. I felt as if I was showing up to my own party day after day after day, and it was executed so much better than I ever could have dreamed of. I am confident there are many talented planners in Sayulita and beyond, but I want to reassure you that Andrea is simply the best. Do not think twice, and if you have any hesitations, I am a phone call away. Choose Andrea, she is truly a miracle worker!

From one detail oriented, OCD gal to another, Andrea… you are the BEST!
My husband Julio proposed to me in Sayulita, and my immediate thought was that I wanted to get married in this beautiful place, but planning a wedding in Mexico from Seattle seemed a little daunting to say the least. I did some research and we met with Andrea before we left Sayulita, and instantly I knew she would execute all of my dreams and more.One of my favorite things about Andrea was that although we waited 2 years to get married, she checked in on us all the time, and sent us a super useful spreadsheet that explained the timing of payments, when decisions needed to be made, etc. Because of this we were able to budget and pay in advance a lot of our large expenses in advance which really helped.When our wedding week came, we had 135 friends and family come. People could not believe that we had that many people come to a destination wedding, but I was never once overwhelmed by it because Andrea made every instruction and event seamless for not only us but our guests. From our ‘white party’ welcome dinner at La Rustica, to our catamaran trip, to our wedding at Teitiare Estate, there was a lot to plan. But because she was so organized, I was able to kick back, just ‘show up’ and really be in the moment to enjoy our friends and family which is the biggest gift in the world. Our guests were so well taken care of by her slew of the best of the best vendors and equipment. Her attention to detail was way above and beyond, and we couldn’t have pulled off such a perfect week without her. With all of the transportation needed to and from the venue, the food, the flowers, the dance floor, the chairs etc etc etc it all seemed impossible but she killed it with a smile on her face. She truly loves what she does and loves her clients and it shows… she even made me a lavender essential oil kit to help me relax. It is so worth it to hire Sayulita Dream Weddings, you can truly enjoy your wedding and honor your friends and family without having to ask them to help with anything because Andrea has your back, which is so priceless. I can’t thank you enough Andrea for making all our wedding dreams come true and then some!

There are absolutely no other words to describe Andrea and Sayulita Dream weddings other than PERFECT.
There are absolutely no other words to describe Andrea and Sayulita Dream weddings other than PERFECT.

In February, I got to marry my best friend and everything I envisioned for an fun destination wedding came alive in front of my eyes. Living in SF and planning to get married in Sayulita was a bit tough. Andrea was highly recommended to me by my wedding venue as an approved vendor. From the day I contacted her until the day of my wedding, there wasn't a single thing she missed. She wasn't just our Wedding Coordinator - she organized the Florist, the Caterer, every PERSON (including my crazy friends and family!) every step of the way! No matter how big or small your wedding is, having a coordinator like HER will make you realize how much you need one on such a special day. We were able to RELAX and ENJOY every second of our wedding bliss thanks to Andrea and that to me, is what matters most when hiring someone.

Andrea - Cole and I, and all of our guests loved your work, your personality, your amazing vibes and we THANK YOU!

I couldn't imagine getting married in Sayulita without the help of Andrea and her team. From the moment we met her (having just got engaged and just 'casually' looking at getting Married in Sayulita) right through to the wedding day her service was 100%. Her attention to detail is exceptional. There isn't an ask big or small that Andrea cannot sort out. She's responsive and so helpful with every ask. She knows every good vendor in Sayulita and will manage everything with no stress. We are so happy to have found Andrea and if you are thinking of getting married in Sayulita don't hesitate to book her. She will make your life so much easier!

To say Andrea is the best would be an understatement.
Sayulita has long held a special place in my heart, and when my boyfriend proposed we knew we wanted to celebrate with our friends in the charming little town. From the moment we met Andrea, we knew she would be the person to help bring our big day to fruition. She understood what kind of party we wanted to throw before we even did. She connected the dots in our vision in a way we would never have been able to on our own. She took every crazy idea we had (for example, when asked what our wedding colors would be we replied with "all of them" and she ran with it!) and turned them into a day that was more perfect than we could have ever imagined.

Planning a destination wedding can be stressful, and she never once made us feel stressed out, even from afar. She and her team, as well as the magnificent vendors she brought into the fold will always be held near and dear to our hearts. It truly took the village to throw what we thought was the most vibrant, colorful, and epic party on the sunny shores of Sayulita. I remember waking up the morning after our wedding wanting to pull the moon and the stars out from the night sky to give to Andrea, because I felt like nothing on this earth could possibly be good enough for her. She is beyond incredible and anyone who gets the opportunity to work with her is lucky.

While we loved Sayulita before, planning our wedding with Andrea solidified it as our second home, and now we consider the entire community our extended family.

My dream wedding
Andrea was the best decision I ever made!! We could not have done it without her, but most of all, I wouldn't have wanted to. She allowed us to fully enjoy our celebration without worrying about a thing. I am a very detailed oriented person, so I was skeptical of a planner meeting my expectations. Andrea and her team impressed me every step of the way. She really took the time to understand us as a couple and created a 4 day event that our friends and family still say is the best wedding they have ever been to. From helping us find the perfect venue to hustling the last minute tents because of the ominous weather forecast, she anticipated everything we wanted and even some we didn't know we needed. She was a constant calming presence and persistent perfectionist. Her professionalism is evident in how well she works with the many vendors that helps create our dream wedding. She is truly great at what she does.
Andrea, we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding weekend so unforgettable.

Was so perfect I wish we could do it again!
Andrea and her team took every concept and detail I imagined and asked for and made it a reality (and even better). My wedding looked like a dream. Andrea is truly an artist and her creativity can translate your dreams into real life. We could not have pulled this off without her. She is organized, creative, thoughtful and a pleasure to work with. She handled our budgets and needs with great care. Her work is priceless. I hope we can renew vows in Sayulita as often as we can and I hope she can be a part of it every time. You will get to know Andrea as your wedding planner and keep her as your friend.... TIP: Take her recommendations and follow her lead, this rock-star knows what shes doing.
