I would have never imagined that my wedding day could be better than what I imagined. All thanks to Maribel and her team who know what they're doing and took our vision and turned it into a reality. Maribel is extremely detail oriented, nothing gets past her, even when we had some last-minute adjustments, she knocked them all out of the park. If something didn't go as planned, I never found out. The day was full of happy tears, laughs, coffee, good food and surprises. The decoration was AMAZING!! The moment I walked down the aisle I was overwhelmed by how beautiful everything was and the ceremony was relatively simple compared to the reception room. I was blown away by the detail that went into each table, Rebecca, took our vision and made it into a doable reality, where I never felt like I had to settle for something I didn't like. I fell in love with my bouquet, my flower crown, my bridesmaid's crowns and their flower arrangements. Everything was beautiful and all my family and friends are still raving about how much detail went into the event.


Who would've thought that a wedding ceremony could be possible right after a Category 5 hurricane? That's our story. With almost one year of planning the wedding of our dreams we almost had to cancel it due to the aftermath of Hurricane María in Puerto Rico. Luckily, we had the best wedding planner in charge. Since day 1, Maribel did everything to keep each and every task organized and well managed in order to avoid last-minute stress. Despite all the chaos that the hurricane brought, Maribel made it feel almost stress-free working nonstop to make our wedding possible. In the end, our wedding was more than we ever expected. All of our guests were astonished by every detail, they even kept talking about it for weeks. Maribel was the key to make our wedding unforgettable. We highly recommend her since she is very responsible, reliable, respectful and responsive. She has a talent in finding a happy-medium between the bride and groom desires. Her elegant taste and attention to detail makes Maribel stand out from other wedding planners.


If you’re considering having a destination wedding in PR (and if you think your guests will be able to swing it, I highly recommend, as nothing can quite match the feeling of a three day party with your loved ones) you’re going to need someone very familiar with your location, someone responsible, someone easy to work with, but most importantly, someone you can trust. Remember, you will be speaking at length to this person for over a year and they will be involved in every part of your big day. With that in mind, I absolutely recommend Maribel and her team at RIBEL+CO to plan your wedding in Puerto Rico. Before hiring Maribel, my wife and I spoke with a couple of other wedding planners, but no one combined the level of professionalism and trust that we felt with Maribel. With every phone call she felt like a friend; never rushing us off the phone and spending time to listen to all of our concerns or questions. When the Zika crisis hit Puerto Rico hard and we thought our wedding might have to be postponed for an entire year, she understood our situation and tried to work with us and other vendors. My advice in the whole process is make sure you visit Puerto Rico before your wedding and spend a couple of days with her and her team. It’s a much needed opportunity to figure out logistics, visit with vendors, and get to know Maribel a bit. Also, do not be afraid to bring her suggestions or ideas that you see in magazines. Do some research as sometimes there are limited selections of things you may want in Puerto Rico, but where there’s a will, there’s a way, and Maribel will definitely work to make it happen. The process of planning can be stressful, but she cares tremendously about what she does, and most importantly, we felt like she really cared about my wife and I having the best day of our lives. We look forward to meeting up with her again when we visit soon!
