Diana and her team truly made our wedding day unforgettable! In 2019, my now-husband, Selvin, and I were trying to mentally prepare ourselves for the stress that comes with wedding planning. However, as soon as COVID-19 hit in 2020, we were a mess! We had our initial call with Diana before COVID-19, where we had a large expected guest list. However, we had to pause on reaching out to vendors and confirming with them because we weren’t sure what we would do in the middle of COVID-19. During the stress of it all, Diana was so patient with us as we tried to figure things out. She was there for us even BEFORE we booked her! We knew right there and then that if the wedding were to go on, Diana had to be part of it. Initially, we went back-and-forth with hiring a day-of-coordinator, but booking with Diana was the BEST decision we could have made.

“Best Bilingual Wedding Management Business!”

From the start, Diana made herself available even before our month-of contract started if I had questions about vendors or needed advice. She was so organized and I knew she would have everything covered. A month out, Diana came on board full force. She immediately set up a meeting with us, set up the walk-through with our vendors at the venue, and made herself very available by email and phone whenever we had questions. Her 10-page timeline of our entire wedding day included everything, color coded, from vendor setup, to transportation for each person in our wedding party and where they needed to be and when, and so much more. She finalized the details with all the vendors, took care of setting up our personal items, and made sure the day went as planned.

Our wedding day was wonderful. Our photographer knew when and where to be to for photos. Diana coordinated transportation from our hotel to our photo session and to the venue. Throughout the day, I would question myself – how in the world would we have been able to pull this off without a wedding coordinator! Our wedding day was amazing. Our guest had a blast. We were even able to enjoy the food and music we selected all thanks to Diana. I would highly encourage anyone considering a month-of wedding coordinator to get one without hesitation. And from my experience, I highly recommend Passionate Wedding Planning Services. Thank you Diana and her assistant Christin for making our wedding day memorable, enjoyable and stress-free.

Planning a destination wedding in Puerto Rico was no easy task, but Diana and Christin made it so much easier! We hired Passionate Weddings for month of planning services and these ladies went above and beyond the call of duty. It was a great asset to have somebody local to the DC area who knew and worked with vendors on the island. Whenever I couldn’t get a hold of a vendor, Diana was ready to hop in and handle it. Christin was on top of EVERYTHING, from arranging the transport of my DIY decor from DC to PR, to dealing with my crazy family, to making sure we stayed on schedule. We couldn’t have asked for better people to take the vision of what we wanted our wedding to be and make it happen.
