Working with Nathalie at Solea was an absolute pleasure. The wedding was a fairy tale come to life. Over and over our guests told us that the wedding was the best they had ever attended. Nathalie offered suggestions along the way, such as having an Hora Loca that made the affair over and above. Her insight into my daughter, the bride's, personality shaped the success of the wedding and the satisfaction of my daughter and son in law on their wedding day. Said simply, Nathalie is a real winner!
Nathalie is truly amazing. My mother and I worked closely with her to plan my wedding. By closely, I mean that she responded to every one of our 100 daily emails and texts almost immediately. She was so great! We had no idea where to start or what to expect before meeting Nathalie. She totally put our minds at ease and was there to assist us every step of the way. I have no idea how we would have done this without her input, gentle yet needed reminders to make final decisions and her unique and special ideas for a beautiful wedding.
Her industry experience was very evident to me from the beginning. Her organization and professionalism were outstanding. Nathalie was also able to suggest several talented, reasonable and reliable people in the industry to help make our day perfect. I cannot thank her enough and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Alejandra did a great job for our garden themed wedding. She met us at most of the vendors and helped me pick the perfect location. My guests haven't stopped talking about this place. I was impressed with her professionalism and bright ideas. Its still an up and coming business and they still have some kinks to workout but overall the wedding turned out absolutely beautiful!
What a pleasure to work with! My wedding was on March 16, 2013 and thanks to Nathalie and her team, it was a huge success. From the moment that we met, I knew that she was the right fit. During the year of planning my big day, Nathalie was there with me for every single step. This was way above the call of duty, especially since we only had the \"6 Weeks of Planning\" package. \r\n\r\nNathalie met with me regularly to discuss the decisions that needed to be made and kept me on track. She was always available to me, even when I had a crazy idea in the middle of the night. \r\n\r\nMost people who heard about my ideas for my \"out the box\" wedding thought I was crazy, but Nathalie just \"got\" me. She helped me execute each one and pull together an event that made me look like a rock-star. \r\n\r\nMy big Jamaican family merging with an equally big Jamaican family was a lot to take on by anyone, but Nathalie was able to keep everyone on task and in line. It was beyond comforting to have someone that was always in my corner and thanks to her, I didn\'t have even 1 Bridezilla moment. (And that is a major accomplishment for me.)\r\n\r\nShe even helped the husband keep all of his tasks on track. She became an important member of the family along the way, so much so that my family keeps asking for her by name. \r\n\r\nI am beyond grateful to the Solea team and happily recommend them to anyone who wants someone to help them make their day perfect. \r\n
Alejandra was resourceful and flexible. She was informed and handled all matters in a polite but assertive manner. During my wedding I was unaware of all the details she was taking care of because the event went off seamlessly.
Nathalie from Solea events was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only was she extremely professional, punctual and friendly, but she is extremely creative! She helped me significantly with my ideas. I'd tell her what I envisioned and she pretty much made it a reality on our big day. After all the pictures, dances, speeches etc, that my husband and I had a moment to look around, we were in awe of how beautiful everything was. I may have done the planning and selecting of things, but Nathalie helped give me the selections and made everything very easy for me, as I am a student and interning and had a lot to juggle while in the planning stages. Nathalie undoubtedly made my dream a reality on our special day. Everything ran smoothly without any flaws. Nathalie was completely on point the entire day and night. We received so many compliments about everything and we really couldn't have done it without Nathalie. Thanks for everything!!!!
Lisa and I met with Alejandra and her staff a few months in advance prior to our big day. We felt completely confident that the entire team at Solea could execute all the details we specified and we were so right. Friday 3/1/2013 was the big day. We had some unexpected weather to contend with but Alejandra handled everything with ease. As the groom and also a self proclaimed micro manager maniac lol, I thought for sure I was going to get involved with whatever I saw but It just wasn't the case. As it turns out Alejandra and I are just alike and she was a few steps ahead of me.... she did such a wonderful job.
On behalf of Lisa and myself, thank you from the bottom of both of our hearts for making our wedding day so special and amazing!
If anyone wants to contact me please feel free to do so anytime. I would be more then happy to go into all the details if necessary.
Solea Events was beyond amazing! You assisted in making our dream wedding come to life. So attentive, responsive, and dedicated! I don't know what we would've done without your assistance. Being available when needed and your response time to our requests were unreal. The service and attention provided is hard to find. Please know that we will be forever grateful! Thank you so much!! With love and appreciation.
Great services! My planner was awesome. We went to vendor appointments together, she conducted my rehearsal and made sure my entire day ran smoothly. I was able to relax and simply enjoy my special day! I highly recommend Solea Events to every bride!!!
Our wedding was this past Saturday, 2/9/13, and everything went perfectly as planned ALL thanks to Alejandra and Solea Events. I cannot speak highly enough about Alejandra. From the beginning of the planning process, to the vendor meetings, day of setup, and throughout the events the entire evening… Alejandra was always there for me, my significant others, as well as for all 175 guests. What would have happened without my calm and collected Alejandra?? I cannot begin to imagine, with Russian and Italian guests and everything in between with open bar for 7.5 hours, having Alejandra overseeing everything was our BLESSING (and a NECESSITY apparently from the stories I keep hearing hahaa)!! She was MY savior; she even had my bag with phone, ipad, wallet, and speakers, everything the next morning (phewwww)!! Alejandra… THANK YOU a million times for dealing with my crazy self and our eccentric wedding guests!!!!!! We had a blast all thanks to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Going to MISS YOU!!!
Nathalie is incredible and we absolutely loved working with her.
She gives wonderful, professional advice when planning weddings and her attention to detail is impressive.
She knows the BEST vendors in the business and helped us find a wonderful photographer and florist. She is also open to meeting new vendors, so if you have someone you like working with, it's likely Nathalie will also like them.
She followed up with EVERYTHING on our wedding contract and even reminded us to get the marriage license. Just when things started getting crazy towards the end, I had an amazing planner to help guide me along. I'd happily recommend her to anyone!
From the second I hired Solea Events, I felt imediately at ease. All of the anxiety that can come from planning a wedding was put to rest! Nathalie and her team were AMAZZZZING. She was BEYOND wonderful. In addition to being a total professional in every sense of the word, she was incredibly kind, and extremely resourceful. Even under great amounts of pressure she maintained the most lovely disposition. I would recommend her services to anyone. She gets an A+ from my husband and I...Thank you Solea Events!!! We love you! :)
Alejandra was amazing! She helped make the day a great success...She was attentive and made the process stress free. Her unique way to put some unexpected and final touches on the reception space made it stand out even more...Cannot say how happy I was to have her there on my special day!
I hired Alejandra for our October 6, 2013 wedding just a few weeks prior. I really felt I could do it all with the help of friends and family since Im very hands on and a DIY bride but as we got closer i was so overwhelmed! We heard about Solea from a friend of ours and decided to contact them and Im so happy i did! From the minute she came on board, she took over and lifted a weight off. Carlos and I got to enjoy every minute of our wedding knowing it was completely in Alejandras care. She was so calm and professional throughout the entire process I wish i would have hired her from the start. I cant thank her enough for all her hard work and making my dream wedding a success!!!...
Solea Events: Nathalie Merle is AMAZING! posted 10/18/2012
We were recently married on 9/22/12 and were lucky enough to have Nathalie play such an active role in our wedding planning process. We used her services halfway through the planning process but if we could do it all over again, we would have used her from the start. Her expertise, professionalism and responsiveness is outstanding. Nathalie's committment to excellence is evident and she helped make our wedding day fantastic. We couldn't have done it without her being present during the day of our wedding and her attention to detail cannot be understated. I have no doubt that she is hands down the best planner in South Florida and would highly encourage all to use her services...it is WELL worth it!
I hired Nathalie Merle as my wedding planner and could not have been happier! She went above and beyond in every aspect of my big day. Prior to the wedding, she accompanied me to multiple vendor visits and was able to use her experienced knowledge of the industry to ensure every detail was perfect. She is extremely professional, organized, reliable and knows how to get things done. I had created a lot of DIY touches and she made sure that everything was set up and executed to perfection. On the day of the wedding, I was so relaxed and able to be a guest at my wedding knowing that Nathalie and her team were taking care of everything. I can’t recommend Nathalie enough! She is a true professional with years of experience and through the planning has become a great friend. Thanks for making my wedding the fairy tale I had dreamed about!
I did not know Nathalie before hiring her as my wedding planner. She is the absolute best! Very professional and totally passionate about her job, she made of our wedding the very best day of our life and did everything putting her heart in the task. She is absolutely amazing! The cherry of the cake is that she is always smiling and making you feel special to her. She also speak French and Spanish! I had guests coming from France, Peru and Columbia and she was totally comfortable organizing and coordinating everybody and everything. The day of my wedding she sent me to the spa and the professionals at the spa could not believe how peaceful I was, I told them: "She did not let me anything to worry about so I am just here to enjoy my wedding" ;) My wedding was a great success thanks to her <3 More than a wedding planner, she is now a very dear friend... Big Love! Seriously, do not hesitate and call her today, she is the very best! Amandine & Juan
We couldn't have been happier with Nathalie. She listened to our vision and with her creative and invaluable ideas, she implemented every thing in a way that exceeded our expectations. She was available, professional and sensitive to all our needs. She made our wedding beautiful and the days events unfolded perfectly under her coordination. On top of everything she is as sweet as sugar and it was a joy to work with her!
Nathalie helped me with the entire wedding and it was a great success! I could have never done it without her help… She took me to several venues until I found the perfect location, then she took care of all the decor: linens, flowers, candles, up-lights, and everything else you can imagine. She booked a great DJ, found the officiant, the limos and the menu selection… Our wedding was absolutely perfect! She is extremely professional and attentive to my taste and desires. I highly recommend her to anyone! **100% Satisfied**
