  • My husband and I used Marcella and ABFW for our vow renewal celebrating our 20th anniversary. From the first contact we had with her, she was attentive, transparent, and most of all absolutely lovely. She really made my husband and I feel like our event mattered to her. Not being from Florida I had lots of questions about the weather, what happens if it rains, etc and Marcella really put me at ease that everything would work out, no matter what! Every last detail was perfect - from the location to the photographer to the officiant to the flowers, which were exactly what I wanted and I didn’t even give Marcella much to go on! It was a beautiful experience that we’ll always remember. Can’t recommend ABFW enough - you will NOT be disappointed!

    My dear Meri, It was exciting to plan a 20 year vow renewal for you. I loved how you talked about husband as "your best friend". You both have so much love for each other. It's so inspiring. Loved your flowers, loved everything we did. Thank you for your trust in us :) Many blessings for you and your Bern, From all of us here at ABFW, Marcella

  • We called Marcella with less than 14 days' notices, and she was able to make it happen! It is incredible, considering numerous other organizations never even took the time to respond to us. Marcella was outstanding and made it easy!

  • We needed help pulling together a beach wedding and reception in Naples (a place we did not know) and had less than a week to do so. Catherine and Cynthia were able to meet with us and provided several venue recommendations that would possibly meet our needs. It took a couple of days to visit all of them and make the selection and then we were out of town until just a few days before the wedding. They made sure that everything was ready for us when we returned to Naples, met with us for a final review of the day's events and promised to be there and have everything setup and ready to go. The day of the wedding we had beautiful weather (for Jan 11 and was we're sure due to their connections). The beach site and photographer were just what we wanted. We had plenty of time to take photos, get married, and have more photos just as the sun was setting. We then headed out to Seasons 52 and had a wonderful reception in a private room. Net/net, Catherine and Cynthia were wonderful to w... Read more

    Dear Marion and Greg, We love the subject you chose for this review because we like to help our couples enjoy their destination wedding, as a "long distance breeze". From the beginning with you traveling here and our first in person meeting with Marion on video from the UK, we felt such a blessing planning your beautiful Florida wedding.You, as the groom, took such initiative visiting so many venues which we identified for you.And then on the day of, to be onsite to see all that planning come together as Ron checked the tides, and set up your beautiful tiki torches in front of those magnificent beach trees, Catherine and I personally felt elated as we set up your table for non alcoholic champagne on the beach.You both thought of everything and your guests responded with joy for both of you. Our hope is that you both will visit again so we can share a cup of tea, or who knows, we may make our way to the UK and share one with you. Our ABFW team holds the intention of happiness for you, all the decades of your life together.

  • I started planning my wedding for 10-10-2020 2 years earlier. I had no idea that we picked the most difficult year to plan a wedding. My wedding planner I had just up and quit on me. Maracella from A Beautiful Florida Wedding was a super hero. She swooped in and took over where the last planner left me high and dry. Maracella was my main cheerleader telling me that everything will workout even when my family, friends, even myself had doubts. The wedding was amazing. She answered everyone's questions so I could focus on my big day. She saved our wedding. It really was a beautiful Florida wedding.

    Dear Amity, It was A Beautiful Florida Wedding in deed! I was so happy to see everyone happy specially YOU! there were many uncertainties to face but we worked as team. We were your eyes in Florida and make sure every detailed was taking care of. Thank you for choosing us and sending you blessings in your beginnings. From all of us here at AFBW, Marcella

  • My wife and I are so happy we decided to go with a Beautiful Florida Wedding more so with Lourdes Aldana. Our experience with them was fantastic. Lourdes was amazing! She gave us lots of options to customize our ceremony. We were so at ease after speaking to her for the first time. She was very open with us and sharing of her own experiences. If we had to redo it we'd absolutely go with both a Beautiful Florida Wedding and Lourdes.

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Jessica & Brent, How exciting it is for us to have been present in such a special moment in your lives. Your officiant Lourdes enjoyed so much working with you and helping you create the perfect ceremony that told your story. Lourdes being bilingual, was able to say some pieces in Spanish and create a synergy with everyone in the room. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and blessings to you both. From all of us here at ABFW, Congratulations 👰🤵❤

  • A Beautiful Florida Wedding was a dream partner for a meticulously detail oriented control freak! My husband and I live in Minnesota and planned to marry in Naples because the town means a lot to us. I was VERY fearful of planning a destination wedding from 2000 miles away with no plans to visit before the ceremony. ABFW set us up with the perfect beach location, provided gorgeous flowers, arranged for impeccable hair and makeup services, scheduled a fantastic photographer and connected us with a thoughtful and attentive officiant. They also gave me great advice for my reception location. If I could, I’d give them credit for the absolutely spectacular weather we had on the day of our ceremony. I highly recommend A Beautiful Florida Wedding!!
