Karen is responsive, organized, and caring. She really listens and is willing to look for niche vendors/think outside of the box! She has systems in place for organization including an online portal and customized PowerPoint so you can get a real sense for how things are moving along and nothing "slips through the cracks." This is especially important as vendors continue to be in heavy demand post-covid and it can be difficult to get a return contact from anyone. You can absolutely put your mind at ease knowing that Karen will be on top of it. On the day of, Karen was there making sure things went smoothly and providing support in managing nerves. If anything went wrong, I have no idea because she was handling it all! If you are looking for competent, organized, and attentive, look no further! Karen is it!

I would not have gotten through my wedding day without Karen. Planning a destination wedding is challenging, but Karen made it as stress free as possible. My wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to her help!

Karen was absolutely our lifeline this past year.
She is someone who exudes professionalism and is truly passionate about the work that she does. She has been there with us every step of the way, even going above and beyond and even out of the scope of her job description at times to help us to achieve our dream wedding. As someone who is of Indian American descent, planning a destination wedding all while considering all of our cultural components is no easy task. Karen was able to help us to remain calm, organized and was most importantly able to help us execute everything so beautifully, even with constant changes in covid regulations and all. Our wedding far exceeded our wildest dreams and without Karen by our side it would not have been possible. Karen takes great pride in welcoming outside couples to her beautiful island to plan their dream weddings. I am proud to say that my husband and I have found a lifelong friend in Mrs. Martinez. We are already looking forward to returning to the island to catch up with our dear friend!
