Turning moments into memories…one event at a time” is our philosophy and mission. Carmen Mesa Wedding and Events is a boutique planning company based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida providing you with meticulous and professional planning, design and coordination. From the smallest detail to the largest logistical aspect, we strive to make the planning process and the event day an enjoyable and stress-free time filled with memory making moments for you and your guests.
As a boutique company, we only take a select number of weddings and events each year so that we can give our clients the time and attention that each event deserves.
We are passionate about all things “wedding”! It’s a special honor to be able to share in a couple’s union and celebration of their love. Although the wedding day is important, we focus on the true significance of the joining of two people in love and providing them, their families and guests with an event that is truly a reflection of them. We love getting to know about your love story, the things you like to do together, the places you’ve traveled, and the vision for your wedding, so that together we can design a truly unique event. Enjoy your engagement and let us plan, design and produce an experience you’ll remember for a lifetime!
