"Yarai was able to see our vision and helped us to create our dream destination wedding."
We cannot say enough about Yarai and her services. First of all, Yarai is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. From the very beginning, Yarai told us that she could be involved as much or as little as we wanted. It was up to us. She was extremely flexible and was available exactly when we needed her. When we decided to do a destination wedding, we were extremely concerned about finding the right place and vendors in Cabo, Mexico. We had an idea of what we wanted, but it was Yarai who was able to help us make it a reality, from guiding us to the perfect site to sourcing guest favors and local decor. Once we selected all the vendors, she worked closely with them to make sure all of the details were accounted for. On the day of the wedding, Yarai made it a point to make sure everything ran smoothly. Not only did she relieve a lot of stress for us, but you could tell that she was genuine and wanted to make sure we had the perfect wedding day.
Yarai, thank you so much for all you did for us! We couldn't have asked for a more dedicated, caring person to help us, and our wedding was absolutely perfect, thanks to you.

"Yarai was truly unbelievable and made what could have been a very stressful situation (a wedding in another country, planned from NYC) so effortless and seamless. We feel so lucky and grateful to have stumbled across her and couldn't imagine our wedding without her planning it."
She is incredibly attentive to every minute detail, is constantly in touch (we started about a year before the date) throughout the planning process, and has excellent taste and wonderful, unique suggestions. I honestly can't say a bad word about her. She exceeded every expectation we had for a wedding planning (and for our wedding).
On the day of the wedding, she was there from the moment we arrived to get ready for the ceremony, and she was there at the very end of the night to put us in a taxi back to the hotel. Never once did I see her break a sweat or snap at one of the staff members - that's just not the type of person she is.

"Denisse and I would like to thank you again for making the biggest day of our lives so special. While words can only do so much, hopefully they can at least give you some idea of how much we appreciate everything you did."
When we first met you seven months before the wedding, we knew immediately you were the Wedding Planner we wanted to work with. We looked at and met with four other resorts and Wedding Planners in Cabo, but with the level of attention you paid, the sincere interest you showed in our specific plans, and of course your expertise and local knowledge, you won hands down. Now in hindsight it is clear that choosing you was one of the best choices we made. Denisse and I want to especially thank you for being such a tremendous help in getting everything we wanted and asked for, as well as a few things we never even thought to ask for. You were so helpful and friendly right from the start that we knew we were in good hands. You always took our calls, returned our emails promptly and were so responsive that any fear or concerns we might have had with a destination wedding was immediately removed. Your patience in dealing with us deserves a medal, as we know we can certainly be a bit demanding. As the months passed and we got closer to the date, you were very proactive in understanding our wants and needs and ALWAYS made us feel special and taken care of. As someone that deals with people with demanding needs for a living, I can especially appreciate how at ease you made us feel. Not once did you ever make us feel anything less than VIP. Thank you for that.
Then once we arrived in Cabo, your personal greeting in the lobby and fulfillment of promises made surpassed our expectations. While I expected to have someone help us plan the event and hire the appropriate vendors, I never expected the personalized attention you gave us, from the night of the Rehearsal Dinner (your choice of restaurant worked out perfectly) to the wrapping of gifts and distribution of wine bottles, the room upgrade, the special wedding night decorations, etc. You were terrific and we are happy to recommend you to anyone. Everything you recommended to us far exceeded expectations. The music, the lounge furniture, the lighting, the location for the ceremony and the reception, the minister you encouraged us to use, the photographer, video, mariachi, etc. Everything was perfect. I was prepared to use my own choices for these, but you "suggested" that I take your advice, and I am glad that I did. I would strongly encourage anyone planning a wedding here or anywhere to leave things to you. In fact, the only regrets we have involve the decisions we made without you. We were very lucky to have worked with such a professional.
We look forward to returning to Cabo and our wedding location again and again in the years to come. Thank you again Yarai. You made what could easily have been a very stressful week into a week we will never forget. All the Best.

"Yarai was able to see our vision and helped us to create our dream destination wedding. Thanks for much for making our day perfect!"
I appreciate all the hard work and long hours you put into making every detail shine! From the early morning meetings finding the perfect venue, to the flowers, cake and table design, you were always one step ahead of me and I couldn't have done it without you, I enjoyed every part. YOu helped me focus and narrow down my options and decision making, and you really captured the idea I had for my wedding. I owe it all to you having such a beautiful day!

"I don’t need to hire a wedding planner/coordinator, this is the age of the Internet, Pinterest, Wedding Blogs and on-site event coordinators"
That was my attitude as a newly engaged bride-to-be who did not want to share my limited wedding budget with a "wedding coordinator/planner". As a new lawyer I knew I could eagerly negotiate the necessary contracts and use my Mom’s experience with corporate events to navigate the other details. Planning a wedding in Cabo San Lucas shouldn’t be much different than planning a wedding in the states - rights? As it turns out, our decision to hire Yarai Peregrino and Memories Weddings and Events was the key component that made my wedding so successful!Yarai’s local relationships were essential in securing and coordinating the venue, photographer, florist, band, hairstylist, guest accommodations and transportation. The most valuable service Yarai provided was making sure everything was taken care of by the time we arrived in Cabo for the event so we were able to enjoy our guests. We did not have to worry about anything on the day of the wedding. Yarai insisted this was her first priority. Looking back at what Yarai and her assistants navigated during that weekend with 160 guests and last minute requests is overwhelming.
For me, not having to worry about those overwhelming details was priceless. For me, the entire day of the event was completely joyful and stress free - it sounds trite but it was truly the best days of my life. An added bonus was getting to know Yarai - she has a beautiful, kind heart and handled some very delicate situations with grace.
