We began "wedding planner shopping" before the pandemic. We interviewed a total of 7 wedding planners, but Rui was the obvious choice to go with. He demonstrated great professionalism, honesty, and attention to detail (just to name a few reasons!). Wedding planning on its own is stressful, but then the Covid-19 pandemic began and you can multiply the stress by 100. This would have been a horrible situation, but thankfully we had Rui and he was wonderful. He handled these stresses and uncertainties with the utmost professionalism. He gave us so much confidence and made us feel comfortable and at ease with everything. Ultimately, he managed to throw us the most beautiful wedding we ever could have imagined, with a much shorter notice and a huge change in circumstances.

Rui really took the time to get to know us. Taking this extra step went SO far with how our wedding turned out - it was like he knew us and our taste, likes, and dislikes better than we knew ourselves. We told Rui what was important to us from the first day - good food, good music, and a fun time. We are "simple" people that appreciate minimalism, incorporating nature, and clean, elegant decorations. You could tell that everything Rui did for us and this day, he kept those important details at the forefront. Rui made executive decisions when he needed to, and they always matched our taste PERFECTLY. We put our full trust and confidence in Rui, and he amazed us and all of our guests.. Rui is a problem solver and made our wishes come true, from small details to big details. He even made our wishes come true before we realized we even had those wishes! He had a solution to everything and was so prepared.

We feel so lucky that we had Rui plan our wedding. Rui is an award-winning wedding planner and it shows - with every detail, every interaction we had, and ultimately the seamless execution on the wedding day, I can confidently use the word "PERFECTION!" (And that's crazy to think about as we were in the middle of a pandemic!!). We thank you so much, Rui, for your hard work and your passion, and for creating a beautiful story out of our wedding from start to finish. Thank you!!
