I am writing this letter of recommendation for my wedding coordinator Susan Hernandez and staff. Our wedding was a destination wedding in July of 2007 held at the Don Cesar Beach Resort in St. Pete Beach. My husband and I live in New York and planning a destination wedding would have been quite a challenge if it were not for the guidance and planning of Susan Hernandez. Her attention for detail, impeccable taste, and her creative instinct made it simple for us to plan our wedding from afar. Everything from the breath taking floral arrangements, to the perfect color scheme, to the meticulous coordination of the wedding ceremony was a success because of Susan’s assistance. It was amazing to see all the pieces put together and the final outcome was spectacular! She went above and beyond her call of duty and exceeded all of our expectations. My husband and I are greatly indebted to Susan for helping us plan such a beautiful and lavish wedding which we will remember for the rest of our lives! We are pleased to give Susan and staff the highest level of recommendation and will continue to use her services for any future events. Thank you, Carmela Toral

I just would like to show my gratitude and appreciation to Susan Martinez-Hernandez. She assisted me in the early part of my wedding planning last year in 2009. She provided me with a wedding planning binder/organizer to prepare me for the up and coming nupitial experience. All I had to do was give her my ideas and she took over the rest. Although the wedding venue that I ultimately chose ended up supplying a wedding planner that was a part of my package, Susan still offered her helping hand with anything I might need. Her passion for this business shows in her personality and ambition to want to help no matter what. She notified me about her husband being a legal officiant and we definitely used him in our ceremony. Susan and Louie have been family friends for several years and we felt totally comfortable with the both of them. On another note, I was unaware until the day of that Susan was a main player in planning and executing my bridal shower. The décor, food selection, etc. were perfect and she busted her tail getting everything done to make my day wonderful. Now to the day of the wedding…She showed up to the venue a few hours prior with a "Just-in-case" basket that every bride should have. It was full of supplies that one may not have thought of for last minute loose ends or emergency situations that need to be fixed. It was so cute and I appreciated it so much. So all in all, if I could do it all over again, I would choose Susan in a heartbeat to be by my side to plan my wedding due to her nurturing nature and drive to make someone's day perfect!
