Your prompt answers to my phone calls and emails and enthusiastic spirit made this weekend event EXCEPTIONAL. The private visits to ateliers that you arranged were such a fun experience! The whole weekend was filled with surprises, from the visits to ateliers to the museums that you arranged. All were such a fun life-long experiences!

“For events with distinction, look no further. Alejandra Events organized my dream wedding anniversary in Venice. With attention to the finest details and working diligently alongside the caterer, florist, musician and more, the event was a complete success! The venue was breathtaking and the VIP haute couture jewelry atelier she organized for my family was extraordinary. I highly recommend working with her because she makes you feel comfortable every step of the way and you can actually enjoy your event! I will never host another event without her. My friends are still talking about it…”

We enjoyed the planning process since everything was so seamless and creative! We can’t wait to plan another party soon with you!”

“Thanks from the bottom of our heart for our "fairytale" chateau wedding! I feel like my wedding day wouldn’t have been as magical without Alejandra and her team. Even though there were 700 guests they were all treated as if we were having an intimate wedding. One of my highlights was our days together searching for the perfect wedding dress. The extravagant and lavish experience you gave us was beyond expectations. You will not regret hiring Alejandra and her staff, well worth the investment!”
SHAHAD & OMAR, KUWAIT
"True grace under fire! There aren’t enough good things to say about Alejandra Poupel and the services her team provided for our wedding. Being thousands of miles away, we were able to utilize her knowledge and expertise to plan our dream destination wedding in Monaco, the most romantic city in the world, with no stress or concerns. The special attention you gave my grandparents by helping them enjoy their stay to the fullest for our big day made the evening so incredibly special. The decorations were beyond incredible, every detail was planned perfectly and we were able to be guest at our own wedding."
AITO AND KANAMI, JAPAN
“You have given me a new definition to the word "world class event.” Welcoming guests from 4 continents and celebrating with such ease and flow made out weekend unforgettable for us and all our guests! You are the best.”
