What was your experience like working with our team: My wedding planner, Cindy, was a huge help. I would have been lost without her. I had no idea where or how to start planning a destination wedding. Together we planned my dream wedding and I have zero complaints with how it turned out. Everything was done the way we requested and I was very impressed with their professionalism and how everything looked. Without the help of the signature wedding planner, planning our wedding would have been a much more stressful experience. Thank you very much for all your help!« (Re)Introducing… Riu Palace Aruba Memories Jibacoa »
