5 Stars is not enough for Somer!
I cannot recommend Somer and her team enough, so much that I don't know where to start with leaving her a a review, so I will begin by saying this: We work an average of 15+ weddings together each season. I own Sayulita Sound and as we are nearing the end of another epic, action packed wedding year, I felt compelled to leave an honest review detailing my experiences with Vida Bonita. There is simply a higher standard with Somer, her weddings are elegant, extravagant and every single detail is always in place and well thought. She is 100% client driven, she takes the lead when necessary but also makes sure that her clients are in control and that their vision is brought to life. Her productions are unmistakable, each one is unique, beautiful and reflects her clients' vision. Somer is fun yet professional, she is calm but she's a boss and she gets things done, on time and with style and grace. If you are looking for a wedding planner that goes above and beyond, someone that really cares about your vision and your love story, look no further than Vida Bonita. She has the experience, the drive and brings an amazing vibe that is contagious at every event she hosts. 10 stars out of 5!

Worry free and enjoy your special day
Other than getting married, working with Somer on our wedding was the best decision we made. She is communicative, available, prompt, authentic, and action-oriented. Planning our wedding with her took the guessing out of the details, and removed all confusion when choosing vendors. We relied on her for recommendations for lodging and food, and she helped us find accommodations for family. We couldn't have asked for a better partner in planning our wedding in the Sayulita area. For the wedding day, any uncertainty in where we needed to be and people's roles were nonexistent. Bringing all the vendors, decorations, details, and itinerary together was seamless and beautifully orchestrated. If there were any problems, we were not aware of them. Our wedding was beautiful, and our day was perfect because of the love we experienced, and for the gathering of friends and family. But we were able to experience the love and be present our guests because we didn't have to worry about anything other than to enjoy the day and create great memories. Somer did that for us. We're grateful and would highly recommend her for your wedding.

Trusting Somer with our dream destination wedding was the best decision we made. I got all the good vibes from her and she understood exactly what my vision was. I would not have had my venue if it wasn't for her. We worked together for over a year to put together a memorable and epic party. I've gotten numerous compliments from my guests that this was the best wedding they ever went to. The day of, Somer and her team were exceptional!! (Shout out to Cairo and Molly!) It can be stressful being a destination bride but Somer was there to take the stress and some decision making off my shoulders. Thank you so much to Vida Bonita!

Truly the best!
If you are getting married in Sayulita or the surrounding area then hire Somer as your wedding planner. My fiancé and I had never been to Sayulita and decided to host 80 of our friends and family members there for our wedding. We could not have done it without Somer! She knows all of the vendors in the area and made appropriate recommendations based on our wants and needs. Somer listens to your ideas and turns them into a reality! It felt like we didn't have to lift a finger when we arrived in Sayulita for our wedding weekend- Somer was on it. We are forever grateful for Somer making our wedding weekend better than we could ever imagine!

Somer had a hard assignment on her hands, but she used all her wedding Jedi tricks to create an unbelievable experience full of love, laughter, and a hell of a great time. For 2 people who know nothing about wedding planning and have trouble making decisions, she made us look like party planning professionals and we can’t thank her enough. From the incredible welcome party, to the beautiful venue she created, to an unforgettable ceremony and reception, we can’t thank Somer enough. If you are looking for a wedding planner that will exceed your wildest expectations, Somer is a perfect fit.

Being in the wedding industry myself I knew how important finding the right planner was for my wedding. The minute I spoke with Somer, I knew she was perfect! From the very beginning to the very end she made everything so easy, stress free, and was such a joy to work with. She is very professional, creative, and such a kind person.

Thank you, Somer!
Somer is such an incredible person, we became fast friends and had our full trust in her planning our wedding. She knows all the best vendors in the San Pancho, Sayulita, Punta Mita, Puerto Vallarta area which made things incredibly easy because of her experience working with them. She was there for us during the most stressful moments of planning a wedding in the middle of a pandemic, and remained calm and collected, and truly made the experience fun, because of her sense of humor and warm personality. Not only did she execute all the details for our wedding day, but also 2 other events, our welcome party and rehearsal dinner. We were blown away that everything came together for each event exactly how we wanted it to. Thank you, Somer!
