“From the moment we met Steve and José, we knew we found the perfect team. They are lovely people, meticulous, perceptive and very clever. And, that was before we started talking about our event! Together we went through the entire process from venue selection, theme, special touches and surprises, and they were helpful, available, creative and professional. Their staff, attention to detail, and perfectionist instincts made our event perfect in every way.”

bride & groom

“One puts a lot of faith into choosing a wedding planner and designer to make your wedding dreams come true, and José and Steve completely exceeded our expectations. From the start, José and Steve did not want our wedding to be another routine wedding that we had all seen dozens of times. They wanted our wedding to be different and special, and without a doubt I can say our wedding was unique, from the design (Flamingo bar! A total transformation of a parking garage to a Miami floral paradise! We could go on!) to a few surprises (including a Bruno Mars impersonator). José and Steve are the best of the best, and demand excellence from the start to end, from the smallest of details to the big picture. We’re grateful for José’s meticulous and creative genius, and Steve’s attention to detail, desire to accommodate and confidence in what he does. José and Steve really are the wedding ‘dream team’ and we couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day!!”

“José and Steve really brought our wedding vision to life. They listened to everything we wanted, added suggestions and ideas, brought their creativity, and executed everything timely and professionally. Our wedding was a dream and I can’t thank them enough for everything they did! I would highly recommend them and work with them again!”

Mother & Father of the Bride

“We were so happy and pleased with the way Meryl’s and Sacha’s wedding turned out. We couldn’t have picked a more spectacular venue in Florida and your artistry and creativity in making it even more special was over the top. What made it even more incredible is that our children’s wedding was one of the first ever held there so you really didn’t have any ‘guides’ to go by. In a way, we were successful pioneers at the Adrienne Arsht Center! We’ll remember the beautiful flowers, backgrounds, lighting, table settings, and overall ambiance for a very, very long time.”
