  • When deciding to look at getting married abroad, we both come to the conclusion that our perfect wedding should take place within New York. We visited our nearest Virgin Holidays branch in the UK to talk over the possible deals and was informed that someone, from a planning company, would get in touch with us in regards to organising our wedding day. Within a matter of weeks, Marisa contacted us to start the long journey of organising our wedding day and assure that everything would run according to plan on the da. With this being our first trip to New York, Marisa was amazing with providing us both with support and advice on every question we asked (and there was a lot of questions). We decided, after numerous discussions, to proceed with having our wedding day at Gapstow Bridge in Central Park. Along with our ceremony, we decided to have additional photo's within Times Square followed by a meal on the evening at Quality Italian. The day after arriving in New York, Sandra... Read more

  • I have had the most wonderful experience working with Marisa and Sandy, from the very get go I felt so comfortable speaking with them and emailing/calling back and forth planning for our big day. Coming from the UK I thought it would be difficult planning a wedding overseas but they made it seem so easy. If you are after people who are kind, friendly, knowledgeable and who will put your mind at ease, then these are the people you must come to. We have had so many compliments from family and friends saying how well the day went. They were an absolute dream to work with and I would choose them every-time over and over again in a heartbeat! Thank-you both so much! 🧡

  • Both Marisa and Sandy were a delight to work with. We weren't sure how easy it would be planning our NYC wedding from the UK, but they made it incredibly easy for us. Prompt response to all e mails, and no issues with making additions to our package and me requesting a change to my bouquet a week or so before the actual wedding. It was lovely to have Sandy officiate the wedding having met her twice before the ceremony. The visit to City Hall to lodge the paperwork accompanied by Marisa was an experience we will never forget and so much less stressful with her there to oversee the process . We wouldn't hesitate in recommending their services.

  • My partner and I live in Australia and had booked a 2 week holiday to New York. We had been together for 12 years and spoke about how good it would be to get married while over there... So that's what we did. I came across their website and sent an email. So glad I did! Communication from both Marisa and Sandy was nothing short of professional the whole way through. They truly are amazing! It was only my partner and I (no guests) so we wanted something really simple and easy, but still special. They absolutely delivered! We had a photographer in our package, his name was Aaron and he was great. He gave us some direction so he could capture the best photos possible and WOW... we just received our photos and are in love! It went so quick but it was perfect. We would 100% recommend Ultimate USA Weddings to anyone!

  • My wife and I booked our New York wedding through virgin holidays here in the U.K. they put us in touch with Marisa and Sandy at Ultimate USA weddings, which we are now so grateful for. Once booked Marisa was in touch immediately to cover all aspects of our wedding. She offered support and advice on everything. Met us in the hotel the day before the wedding, then both sandy and her accompanied us to city hall to complete our ceremony. Everything necessary was taken care of, no dramas, no issues, all faultlessly completed. Marisa has a great deal if knowledge of New York and was able to provide some excellent recommendations. We are now back in the U.K. reflecting on our USA wedding and a key part of the day was Marisa and Sandy, both professionally and casually. We are looking forward to going back to NYC where we will hopefully catch up with our new friends!!!

  • Sandra and Marisa are simply the best! They made everything so simple and everything came out perfect. We had a violinist which was phenomenal and just had the best overall experience with them. Would recommend them 10000 times to anyone looking to get married in NYC area.

  • Don't look any further! These are the planners for you. Sandy & Marisa are the most amazing people. We are from the UK and I had A LOT of questions being the other side of the pond. Each and every email I sent was read and responded to efficiently (many websites didn't actually read my emails/queries and just sent me their generic package details and days later). We wanted 620 Loft & Garden but as the venue will only allow by the hour reservations a short time before the date, we asked for a 'Plan B' venue which we could swap over if we got our first choice later down the line. Nothing was a problem, or a challenge. Their constant contact reassures you of everything. I am a Personal Assistant so a stickler for organisation and these two were so on my level. The service you receive is also very personal with how they take you through the process, rather than just being a client, so I had full faith that the day would be perfect .... and it really was. I also have to praise the make-up ... Read more

  • It’s hard to find a place to start when it comes to writing this review as the service we received just blew us away. Coming from Australia and eloping for our wedding , we didn’t really know how it would go. I found Sandy and Marissa’s site through Facebook and decided to drop them an email. From the get go they were extremely professional, very responsive and nothing seemed to hard for them. Friends and family asked me “is it hard to plan a destination wedding” and honestly when you have a team like these ladies behind you it’s the easiest most stress free event you will have. How many can say that about their day? I instantly got a good vibe from the first email and knew they were the people I could trust to plan our special day. There were emails back and forth and a Skype call which was great as my husband also sat in on that. Meeting the ladies in person when we arrived in New York was lovely. Everything was ready to go and both have very calming personalities. They w... Read more

  • Marisa and Sandy Pena are without doubt the only wedding planners to choose if planning a wedding in New York. We were married at the Top of the Rock and everything from dates, times, transport, bespoke flowers, hair and makeup was just perfect. We had the most amazing day, stress free and planned to perfection by these ladies - the thought and detail they put into your special day and leading up to it means you can enjoy everything without worrying about the details as they have it all covered. Brilliant, thank you ladies.

  • From the very first email, Sandy and Marisa were professional, friendly and extremely helpful. They answered all our questions and ensured everything went smoothly. We just can’t thank them enough for making our dream day so perfect. It really was amazing and right from the start of our wedding journey, they were always there helping and guiding us. They really did take away all the pressure, so we could concentrate on our moment. By the time we were married we felt as though not only were we man and wife, but we had made two new lovely friends as well.

  • What an amazing wedding day! Thanks to Marisa and Sandy for ensuring that our day was perfect. From first contact Marisa was on hand to answer all our questions, offer advice and suggestions and to ensure that the day ran smoothly. Professional, friendly and super organised they ensured that we were fully informed of what was required from us with respect to paperwork and documentation. The suppliers sourced, florist, make up and hair, photographer were excellent and despite not having met us prior to the wedding captured our requirements perfectly. Sandy even performed our Central Park wedding herself, which was a special touch. We cannot rate this company enough. If planning a destination wedding in NYC, look no further. (UK bride)

  • Marisa and Sandy made getting married in New York 100 times easier than I thought it was going to be. My now husband and I travelled from the UK for a truly amazing destination wedding, and truly amazing it was! I had a lot of questions when leading up to our wedding day, and there was no hesitation from Marisa or Sandy to keep the nerves at bay. Marisa and Sandy really do make dreams come true! I can’t recommend them highly enough!!

  • Marisa and Sandra went above and beyond to bring together our dream wedding day. As we live abroad we didn't really know where to start with planning, not being able to view locations and see it come together mean't a lot of trust. I'm so glad we put our faith in them as they really took the time to understand our hopes and what we wanted from our wedding day and they couldn't have done a more perfect job. The whole day ran so smoothly and we were so grateful for them being there every step of the way, even with dealing with the paperwork. Even their extended team where so wonderful, professional and helpful. From flowers, to photography, the ceremony and help with booking our evening meal after. I couldn't recommend UltimateUSAWeddings highly enough for a dream New York wedding!

  • We booked our Central Park wedding through Virgin who put us in touch with Ultimate USA Weddings...and I'm so pleased that they did. I was contacted by Marisa soon after we booked and we scheduled a Skype call to establish the basic details. They made all of the arrangements their end and kept in contact to let us know how things were progressing, accommodating our requests effortlessly. It was so lovely to meet Marisa when we arrived in NYC and Sandra who performed our ceremony (although it can be difficult to tell them apart!). We have kept in contact since and hopefully can catch up again when we next visit the USA. Thank you ladies for making our day so special. Andrew & Sue Dixon xx
