Diane Phelan and Rogier de Boer (December 2014)

FOTCD1FMy wedding day went perfectly without a hitch. I had a very clear vision of what I wanted and Sandy & her team went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everything ran smoothly; from keeping track of the vendors, to the set up and breakdown of the impeccably planned and decorated ceremony and reception spaces, to sending a member of her team to the mainland to personally make sure the flowers (which ran into a snag) made it to my wedding on time. She even lent some emotional support when things went a little awry with some guests. Sandy is incredible good at what she does, which is making sure your wedding day is perfect. My main concern with having a destination
wedding on an island like Vieques was that I don’t speak the language and didn’t have photo 1the opportunity to meet all the vendors. Sandy was the perfect liaison to make sure the vendors were doing what they needed to, when they needed to. All my husband & I had to do was enjoy our time there. Along that vein however, I gave flexibility .5 less because the planning process was a little stressful regarding the vendors. I wasn’t able to see pictures of the cake, get samples of the musicians or see hairstyling samples. It felt like I was making a lot of decisions in the dark as a result. When all was said and done though, I will say that I was extremely satisfied with all the vendors- the hair stylist, the cake, the DJ, the flowers, the officiant etc. Sandy has essentially curated the vendors she finds talented as well as reliable and gives you choices from there. Living in NYC, I am used to having choices laid out in front of me. However if one is getting married on a relatively undeveloped island, having a guide such as Sandy Malone is essential.
