We would HIGHLY recommend Lisa & Jean for anyone planning a wedding in Barbados. Lisa and Jean planned our wedding on the beach and reception at The Cliff from start to finish, and they did much of the leg work as we live in New York. Wedding planning is difficult enough as it is, but planning a destination wedding comes with an additional set of challenges and stress.
From the beginning we liked Lisa & Jean’s style and vision of weddings. They showed us their look book of previous weddings they had done and we liked the variety of styles they showed us and some specific examples that looked similar to what we wanted. We really wanted the beauty of Barbados to be a big part of our wedding and reception, and we wanted the decor for both the ceremony and the reception to reflect that. Lisa was full of ideas from the start and worked hard to give us the most optionality along with the best prices available to help bring our vision to life.
From a process perspective, Lisa worked diligently to help us to stay organized and on the right timeline. She gave us regular email updates on what we needed to tackle next and broke it down for us into much smaller units, making the planning process much less daunting. Whenever we fell behind, she was always there to nudge us back on the right track and help make decisions.
When making those decisions, Lisa also helped narrowed down our choices and gave us a lot of information about the various vendors. As an example, she provided links to the four photographers’ websites that we were considering so that we could see their work and make the ultimate decision. Even though we were not able to meet with them in person we felt like we had all the information we needed to make our choices. The process was very similar when it came to discussions about the music, flowers, cake, transportation, videographer, venue layouts and more.
Lastly, when it came to the big day, Lisa and Jean’s execution was flawless and they were in their element. This is where they showed us their true talent, as they are both phenomenal on the execution front and left us to enjoy the moment without worrying about a thing. They were with us from bridal party preparations until the last guest left for the night and they focused on every minute detail, from ensuring that the beach was perfectly prepared, to making sure that the photographer, waiters and musicians were all in the right place and on cue.
With all the stress of wanting the perfect wedding day, where everything goes to plan and all you do is take it in and enjoy this once in a lifetime moment, we wholeheartedly recommend Lisa & Jean as the ultimate team to get it done to the highest standards.
