My husband and I live in Oklahoma, planned to elope to Spain, and I went on a google search to fine someone to help me coordinate. Laura won me over with her responsiveness and ability to seamlessly communicate in English. We only had one call because I prefer email and she still handled EVERYTHING. She helped us find the perfect location (Jardin Botanico Marimutra), even though it was not a standard option in the package I chose. The location was easily the most beautiful place either of us had ever seen. She also coordinated music, flowers, meal, and officiant. I was a fairly low maintenance bride. I won't say everything was exactly as expected (officiant's English/style wasn't amazing and my flowers weren't exactly what I asked for); however, I wouldn't trade the experience with a big American wedding ever. The meal was amazing, the florist came to my room and helped me (as we took no one to Spain with us) and she was an absolute delight. That easily compensated for the miscommunication about the bouquet. Laura was always responsive, kind, and so willing to accommodate anything additional I requested. She gave me hotel recommendations and they were spot on. Hotel Arts Barcelona is worth its' price tag. I would use her again for any event. The pricing was also very reasonable for her services. Finally, the photographer she found captured this event absolutely beautifully!! And in 10 years, the photos will be the only things that remain. Laura and Rares Pulbere (photog) were worth much more than I paid! I'd recommend them both over and over.

Although Laura of Crystal Events started out very professional, helpful and competent. After securing the business things seemed to turn around. She delegated a junior staff and we never heard from here again except when monies were due. Speaking of monies, ridiculously priced quotations were being sent across, and as expected , not on the vendors original invoice. We felt like things were getting shoved down our throats and vendors were imposed on us, everything we wanted suddenly became unavailable in Barcelona" or ündoable"". Where I'm from, a wedding planner becomes and informal or semi formal relationship. Crystal events made it so formal, at a point I felt like I was being done a favour. Bottom line, wedding planning was miserable and unfortanately we didnt have a lot of time and didnt speak Spanish so we could not switch .

Hello Kaline, First of all, I must address the fact that you have never contacted us here at Crystal Events, and as a result, have never been a Client of ours. We have not planned your wedding. Allow me to address all of your statements below: Firstly, Crystal Events doesn’t have junior staff. All of our team members are experienced, educated senior staff. Nuria has over 10 years of experience in the events industry (since 2005), with 3 years’ experience in the wedding industry itself before joining the Crystal Events team in 2012. Jennifer has a degree in Tourism & Marketing, working in the tourism industry since 2000. As planner of numerous weddings in her native Scotland, she had ample experience before joining the Crystal Events team in 2014. I myself was in the events industry before creating Crystal Events and have over 12 years of experience (since 2004) with 9 years of experience in planning destination weddings here at Crystal Events. Secondly, in regards to payments. When a payment is due to Crystal Events, the main wedding planner is the person who will let the Couple know when a payment is due. Thirdly, in regards to vendors. If you had been a Client here at Crystal Events, you would have seen that indeed you receive quotations provided by the service providers (vendors) themselves and that we provide a translated quote when necessary – for example, if a service provider does not speak English. The providers that we work with are recommendations and in no case are they “shoved down throats”. Again, if you had been a Client here at Crystal Events, you would have seen that even on the contract itself, it is specified that the Client has final say and will approve every service before it is booked. The rest of the statements that you have made are, of course, untrue, given that you are not nor have you ever been a Client here at Crystal Events. I don't know where or from whom you have received this information but if you had been a Client of Crystal Events, you would have knownthat all of the things you are stating are untrue.

We decided to get married in Barcelona in May in late February - we were told by several other wedding planners that there was "no way" a wedding could be planned in 3 months. Enter Laura, Nuria, and Crystal Events. The entire team worked with us to make our intimate, elopement-style wedding dream a reality. The team is well-connected and knowledgeable, and instantly was able to recognize what our vision was and what aspects of the wedding were most important to us. Crystal Events has a wide range of suppliers and all the services provided to us were of higher quality (and for better price) than we could have ever imagined. Our wedding day was magical - it surpassed our every expectation, and we have Crystal Events to thank for that. We cannot recommend Crystal Events highly enough. From small, intimate weddings to large, lavish affairs, they truly live up to their reputation by providing clearly unique, exceptional weddings. Ana-Laura & Damian 25 May 2013

Laura and the Crystal Events team are incredible! From day 1 of working with Laura she instilled confidence. She is trustworthy, incredibly organized and truly passionate about her work!!! My husband and I had the time of our lives at all three of the wedding events Laura planned for us. The wedding itself was beyond anything I could have dreamed of! The venue was stunning and the ambience down to every detail was stylish and romantic. Laura created an experience, not only for us - but for all of our guests who travelled from around the world, that no one will ever forget. I can't thank her and her team enough! Ali & Jono 2013

Thanks to Crystal Events and our dear friend Nuria, our wedding was truly a dream come true!! It was above and beyond what we ever could have hoped or wished for and that is because of Crystal events and their amazing staff and suppliers. From the moment we first spoke to Laura and the team, our wedding planning became such an enjoyable and special experience. Nuria was always there for us, no matter what day or what time and she was always one step ahead of us!!! If we had a question, Nuria had the answer!! if we asked to have something done, Nuria would already have it done!! :) Everytime we visited Barcelona, Nuria had every moment planned to perfection to ensure that we got the most out of our time there! In particular as we are from Ireland and were getting married in Barcelona we were warned by other people that there was a lot of paperwork and this might be quite difficult but with the help of Nuria this was a piece of cake!! Nuria held our hands every step of the way for over a year and when the wedding day finally arrived we didn't have to worry about a thing and we both enjoyed it every single second!! We are forever indebted to Crystal events for their hard work and they know that they are welcome in Cork any time so we can show them the same hospitality that they showed us xxx Kate & Rob Heffernan

Crystal Events (particularly Nuria) were amazing throughout the whole 18 month planning process, and the follow up administration. Given their work loads and the fact that they were assisting with other weddings, we felt that they made the time for us whenever we needed their advice and support. As we were planning from the UK, it was a great help having them to have discussions and make arrangements with suppliers on our behalf. We then would follow up with them via skype and during our periodic trips to Barcelona. Their knowledge of venues in and around Barcelona was of great value which helped us find the perfect one for us. Without Crystal Events we don’t think our wedding day would have been as perfect as it was for both us and our guests. Thank you once again Crystal Events for everything and making our wedding a reality. 26th May 2014 Louella and Ian

Firstly I'd like to say thank you very much again to Crystal Events! Thanks to their efforts, we had a lovely wedding than we had expected. We had a wedding in April of 2012. I lived in Barcelona for business, and my wife lived in Japan for her business. We had registered our marriage in Japan, but not had the wedding ceremony at that time. In our wedding, Crystal Events was the best partner for us. I list up our feelings below: # Initial proposals of pictures Initially we'd had almost no idea about the wedding in Spain. With these proposals, we were able to imagine what kinds of venues are possible, how the venues are, how our wedding will proceed, etc. # Visiting candidate venues Around 5 months before our wedding, my wife came to Barcelona for a travel, and we visited the candidate venues. We were able to see and check every room, even the backyards. we talked many possibilities and preferences. Also every venue owner was so nice to us. # Menu tasting At the same time of visiting the venues, we also tried wedding dinners. We tried many dishes with our wedding planner. Thanks to this tasting, we were able to select best dishes for our guests. In addition, during this tasting, we talked many of our preferences with our planner in face to face. She took notes everything for us, for later preparations. # Flexibilities in options and customization For us, and I guess for almost all couples are same, it's difficult to decide every preferences in detail from the scratch, such us makeup artist, flowers, type of dishes, clothes, music… Crystal Events proposed us some base options to select which fit our common preferences (the main colors are green and white, for example). These base options were great help. Further, we were able to customize. We added a lovely wedding cake, also removed some flower decor. It’s very flexible. # Handling troubles I have two impressive things in this topic. The first is on makeup. By the differences of makeup styles between Spain and Japan, our makeup artist did not have colors which are fit to my wife’s preferences. After the makeup trial, we talked this to our planner. She phoned immediately to the makeup artist, and after all, the makeup went well. The second is our wedding DVD. There were misspell of name in the movie title. She told the photographer soon, and the spell was corrected. #Supports on the wedding day On the wedding day, almost everything proceeded as planned. We enjoyed our memorable time. Crystal Events’ team supported us in the background very well. Last but not least, Crystal Events dedicated so much time for us. We asked many questions, changed details, but they always answered us kindly.Our wedding was a great success. Our parents have already watched our wedding DVD movie again and again, we cannot count it!
