WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY ...

Gracias. Gracias. Gracias.  No te he escrito porque no encuentro las palabras para describir lo feliz que estoy con el trabajo que hicieron.  La boda fue un sueño, la decoración estaba espectacular, mejor de lo que imaginaba, todo lo que soñé estaba ahí ese día hecho realidad.  Me encantaron las sorpresas, el 'hanging centerpiece' estaba hermosísimo.  Gracias por escucharme, por entenderme, por ser tan dulce conmigo y tratarme con tanto cariño y profesionalismo.  Mil veces GRACIAS.

I had a destination wedding in San Juan. The decorations and flowers exceeded my expectations. Many of my guest commented on how stunning everything looked. I had a cascading bouquet that was absolutely gorgeous. I'm so glad my wedding planner Barbie Diaz introduced us.

Blanco by Mara made all my wedding dreams come true! She used my Pinterest wedding board to get an idea of what I was envisioning and she found invitations that were exactly what I wanted. She incorporated all my ideas beautifully. I wanted to live in the room she decorated for us. Everything was beautiful, the reception area, the guest tables, the bride and groom table and my favorite, the dessert table. Every time I turned around, I noticed something new that I loved. 
She captured everything I wanted perfectly, even though I live far away and couldn't personally meet with her until a few days before the wedding. She was very responsive through email and phone and was able to make some last minute changes.
All of our guests were impressed with the flowers and decor and already one of them booked Blanco by Mara for her upcoming wedding! 
I would definitely recommend their services!!

Since I was a little girl I always dreamt about my wedding day. From the dress to the church, venue, but most importantly about the flowers, decoration, & theme of my wedding. When it came time to plan our wedding, I knew without a doubt that Mara would do the flowers, decorations, & our invitations. To give you a little background Mara did my sisters’ wedding which was amazing!!! She also has done around 10 of my closest friends’ weddings & every time I attended one of these weddings it was a different romantic & beautiful experience. Her talent is limitless. So picking her was a no brainer for both my husband & I.

Working with Mara was a delight. She listened to what I wanted & asked me to send her my pinterest wedding board to see what type of decorations I liked. I only had the colors picked out. I wanted a white, black, & gold wedding, colors that brides don’t usually pick. Even though those are my favorite colors I was hesitant about the idea & how it would look on the venue. As I explained this to Mara she eased my worries. She knew what she was doing. I remember she asked me to send her pictures of bouquets of flowers I liked. I responded that I wanted a bouquet of white peonies. One of the pictures I sent her was of a bouquet of white peonies & in between it had gold painted peonies. On the day of my wedding, while I getting ready the bouquet arrived & to my surprise, Mara had gone above and beyond & painted the peonies gold. It is the most beautiful bouquet of flowers I’ve ever seen & that moment marked the beginning of a fairy tale wedding. Mara’s talent & professionalism didn’t cease to amaze me. Her attention to detail made our wedding everlasting. From the flowers to the linens, menus, & romantic candles. I would never in my wildest dreams imagined what she created for us. There was no one person that attended the wedding that came to me to compliment me on the flowers & decorations & I have to say it was all because of Mara. 

Thank you Mara!
