Hands down, Ban Kasa has to be the best wedding planners on the Island of Curacao. Out of 10 stars, we would rate them a 50!!! Ban Kasa made our dreams come true, and far surpassed our expectations for our perfect fairytale wedding.
We came across Ban Kasa online from our google search, along with a number of other wedding planners on the Island. Ban Kasa was the first to respond to our e-mail, and they treated us with respect even though we were not a “traditional” couple. As a lesbian couple, we were afraid that our dream ceremony would not be possible on the island, however Ban Kasa went above and beyond to make sure that our special day was everything that we wanted it to be. They even made up a marriage certificate to symbolize our commitment to each other, which was really special.
Ban Kasa remained efficient and professional and kept the element of excitement throughout our entire year and a half of planning. I believe they gave us 17 different quotes because we kept changing our minds and we even added things up to our very last day. They were able to accommodate every wish that we had.
All “business” aside, Ban Kasa treated us like we were family. They added so many special effects and details to our day that we did not even ask for, just to make things look perfect. Our guests have told us that our ceremony was the most magical and beautiful wedding they have even been to, including their own! Our guests even gave Ban Kasa a round of applause as they were leaving our reception, and it was well deserved.
Everyone that we came in contact with from Ban Kasa was amazing. Ilse was by our side the entire ceremony and reception to make sure that everything was perfect, she even stayed with us during our photo shoot to make sure the pictures were perfect as well. We would like to give a special thank you to Ilse…she really went above and beyond…and her kindness was overwhelming. Our ceremony speaker, Maria…was such a special touch to our day. She said so many wonderful things about us, and added her own words and special thoughts as well. She even played the harmonica at the very end of the ceremony, which was a very special and thoughtful touch. Thank you Maria for being so full of life and passion. Cornelius was our photographer….the pictures speak for themselves, they turned out amazing. I would highly recommend him to anyone, as he was able to capture our entire ceremony and all the magic that unfolded. John John was our stylist, he also was amazing, he went above and beyond as well to make sure we both looked incredible for our day. He even used his creativity and decorated a flower to match exactly how we needed it to be. That was really special. And finally, Will, thank you so much for running such an amazing business. You have made so many peoples dreams come true, you are a truly special person. You and your team are incredible people as well as business professionals.
Words can not express how thankful we are that we chose Ban Kasa for our special day. It truly was our magical fairy tale wedding, and Ban Kasa is the reason for that.
All our love,
Jackie and Sarah Perhay
