Autumn and Jim’s wedding

SANTELER_Couple

Sabrina put together a destination wedding for my husband and me. Without ever meeting us in person, and through many phone calls and e-mails, Sabrina was able to make my dreams come together at the Hotel Del Coronado. Every vendor we spoke with was glad to hear they would be working with Sabrina. And now I know why. 
I sent Sabrina all the wedding items including the wedding dress, cake topper, candelabras, wedding dress hanger, and the guest book.
Sabrina provided a few items such as the cake stand and the “Here Comes the Bride” sign. 
Overall, Sabrina Cadini with La Dolce Idea did an amazing job with the wedding and reception and made the event progress seamlessly.

A raving recommendation from Carole

hope-zack-hotel-del-coronado-wedding-08

I couldn’t help but post this wonderful recommendation from Carole, a mother of the groom that I had the pleasure to work with last year. Carole sent this note to a bride who recently contacted me inquiring about wedding planning services.

“We leave today to attend the birth of our third grandchild, but I wanted to quickly respond, as Sabrina would do! I can tell you resoundingly, Sabrina was simply the best. Responsive, expedient, responsible, executed as we discussed, had lovely visions, pretty and beautiful spirit, jumps right in and gets to know the family, and on and on. By the time our son and his fiancee married, Sabrina made me feel like she had become a fast friend! The wedding was at the Hotel Del Coronado last September. Our daughter-in-law had worked with someone who was recommended to her, but the wedding was not coming together well. So, I asked if she’d like me to help out since she worked full time. The Hotel Del Coronado gave me a recommended vendor list and Sabrina was on it. I called all of them, and Sabrina was first to return my call. She immediately made me feel like we could still pull off the wedding with only three months left to go! She listened, and executed above and beyond all expectations. She would e-mail, text or call and keep my daughter-in-law and myself in the loop at all times.

I just can’t recommend her enough. She made the wedding come together as if it had been planned for a year. An exceptional woman, and wedding coordinator! You will love her, too.

Hope that helps you. Have a spectacular wedding!”

Thank you, Carole 🙂 And congratulations on the birth of your adorable grandson, Casen Gregory!

Sabrina and Martin’s wedding

I knew Sabrina was the perfect match the minute I met her. I think the same name is what initially prompted me to contact her, and I am so thankful that I did. Not only is she extremely professional, but she is so amazingly sweet, organized, chic, and above all – she makes her couples feel comfortable (this is key when planning such a big event).

The biggest trait you’ll see in Sabrina is her sense of calmness, which I think is pretty amazing considering her line of work. She never lost her cool, she had a great way of giving her input and offering amazing suggestions in a way that didn’t seem pushy, but rather eye-opening.

My husband and I were pretty much on our own with the wedding planning and all the decision making that went with it, but meeting with Sabrina made the process smooth and easy going. No doubt, I still stressed my butt off – mainly just working so much and not having family or friends around, but always keeping close ties with Sabrina via e-mail, texts & phone calls made it SO much helpful and easier, especially for a 300+ wedding like mine. I would highly highly recommend her. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

Amanda and Jennings’ wedding

Sabrina was my coordinator for my wedding. She is absolutely amazing, and made my day the best that it could be. She handled any potential issues with ease, and without me even knowing until the next day! She is incredibly organized, professional, passionate and creative. I would highly recommend Sabrina. Use her for your wedding – you will not regret it!
