Planner Description


Creative wedding planning in the Latin tradition...with a modern twist.

Do you picture your wedding reception with some Mariachi music in the background, salsa, cumbia, flamenco or bachata dancing? Is your family heritage important to you? Having a wedding in the United States – and probably far from you country of origin – doesn't mean that you can't celebrate your culture and traditions. My job is to help you plan, create, and deliver a memorable and culturally authentic wedding experience!


Hablamos tu idioma y entendemos tu cultura!

Having lived south-of-the-border for most of my life, I appreciate the unique and beautiful qualities of Hispanic culture. Moreover, as someone who has planned a number of weddings in Mexico, I have a deep appreciation for what it takes to orchestrate a wedding ceremony and reception in the Latin tradition. I rely on my hands-on experience to help guide you through the entire planning process; at the same time, I use my creative skills and sense of imagination to help make your wedding-day vision a reality!


Bodamaestra was originally founded back in 2004 in Monterrey, Mexico when my best friend Emily and I realized that we wanted to work together to help couples plan weddings. We did it for a couple of years until I met Joe (check My Story) and I moved to Virginia in 2006. I wanted to continue the business but I realized that the market was completely different. Then I had a revelation: Latina brides in the Washington, D.C. area could benefit from having an experienced wedding planner who understood their background, culture, language, and customs. My bilingual skills and experience in the industry have helped me to serve the needs of Latino couples from across the region.

Because the art of planning weddings requires me to keep up with this dynamic and growing industry, I am constantly learning new wedding tips and trends. My network of wedding pros also provides a great support system!

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations from Monterrey Tec (better known as ITESM or Tec de Monterrey). During my college years, I helped plan several student events such as symposiums, back-to-school parties and fundraising events. Additionally, the skills that I have developed over 18 years in the purchasing field have helped me to be successful in my role as a wedding planner.

What makes me different? I connect with you. I love to know your story and what is important in your relationship. These elements help me to understand you as a person and as a couple. From there, together, we can do all the planning needed to make your wedding a fun fiesta!
