La Fonda On the Plaza Wedding Reviews:

September, 2018 Dear Samie, Words cannot begin to express how happy we are to have found such a knowledgeable and helpful coordinator to help us plan our perfect day. We are so grateful for all of your hard work and expertise in putting everything together. This goes without saying, but we could not have done this without you and cannot thank you enough. Your expertise, effort and appreciation for classic details were unbelievable and we know how lucky we were to have you. Katie McCarthy & Nate Witkowski

September, 2018 Hi Samie,, Our wedding was fantastic. Jessi and I loved it! Everybody had a great time and said it was wonderful. Thank you for all that you did to help us plan it and thank you for all that you did on the day of the event to make it happen. Thanks for the last minute details you worked on such as the wheelchair ramp and the mat for the unity candles. You made us feel like a king and queen.Your recommendations of Fred for flowers and John for the DJ were great. They both were perfect. Melanie West the photographer was great too. Your recommendation to give a welcome speech was great too. I would not have thought to do it and it was a nice touch. Everybody liked it. Your estimate for alcohol was only off by $10 (most of what I owed was for the extra food added to the order to meet the minimum). Nice work! We could not have done this without you. You and your staff were amazing. Sincerely, Chris Brogan

September, 2018  Samie, Wonderful, Thank you for working with us to make a very memorable night. Both Nadia and myself will cherish the memories we made at La Fonda. Warm Regards, Kevin Schubert & Nadia Guardado

September, 2018  Hi Samie, Every part of the La Fonda experience was fantastic, beginning with your guidance and coordination. It was a flawless execution and each and every one of your staff contributed to the overall success of the weekend. The Concierge team took excellent care of the wedding party. The kitchen produced an outstanding menu. The service staff was able to get all plates out and collected seamlessly. The bar and staff serving the appetizers made the time between the service and dinner go by in a flash. No matter how many people I try to remember and note, I will forget someone. More and more things come to mind that need praise and recognition. It is suffice to say that we were extremely pleased and will highly recommend La Fonda to prospective guests and clients. Kind regards, Donna Ralph, Mother of the Bride  Katy Ralph  & Dustin Freund

August, 2018 Samie, Thank you for all of your hard work making our day special! WE are so grateful and honored. Sincerely, Scott & Jaimie Huggins

July 1, 2018 Thanks for your kind words about Sara Flynn & Doug. It was a fabulous night! But mostly, a million thanks for guiding us through the wedding "maze." You were our captain and anchor, and we couldn't have done it without you. You made the whole wedding experience easier, and for that we'll always be grateful! With my deepest thanks, Jeannette Fletcher

June, 2018 Hi Samie, Thank you soooo much for all you did to make the brunch so beautiful and so successful. I feel it was a beautiful ending to a beautiful wedding weekend!! Sara & Doug's Farewell Brunch

June, 2018  Hi Samie. What an absolute pleasure working with you! You are so grounded, calm, helpful and organized.

August, 2017  Samie, Thanks so much for the note and follow-up! The event could not have gone any smoother and we couldn't be more grateful for all the effort and support you provided throughout the process. You really made it easy on us and thank you for being so diligent and professional throughout. We've been getting feedback from so many of our guests that it was the most beautiful wedding they've been to. The venue, the food, the level of service - all first-class.If there is anything we can ever do to help (testimonial or reference, etc), please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks so much, Jeremy & Celina

July, 2017 Samie, I apologize for the delay. I wanted to thank you for everything you did for the wedding. Everything went off without a hitch and it couldn’t have been better. You and your people were the depiction of hospitality and our entire family felt at ease the entire time. It was one of the best weekends of our lives and we owe almost all of it, to you. Thank you again for all that you did! It was incredible.Have a great rest of the day! Sincerely, Meredith McCaslin (Jessica & Scott)

May, 2017 Hi Samie! Thank you so much for your email. We're in our honeymoon in Punta Cana and something told me to check my email in case you'd sent something. We cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful experience it was to get married at La Fonda. It was all just perfect. We both thank you so much for all your work and help. Your staff is amazing too. We really hope we can see you again next time we're in Santa Fe. We'll stop by La Fonda to say hi! Greetings from the Dominican Republic!!! Alma & Clayton

May, 2017 Good morning Samie, Lila and me had one of the best times of our lives and we thank you so much for your hard work and dedication to a perfect evening for us.  Everything went more than perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better turn out. The weather was great, the vibes were good, everything flowed accordingly and aside from a flask or two from some retired cop friends of ours no one got in trouble. We greatly appreciate you Samie and good luck on the rest of your weddings this season! Lila & Cisco 

May, 2017  We were so pleased with the food, the service, the outstanding setting!!! Everything exceeded our expectations at La Fonda, La Terazza! We can't thank you enough! Loved every minute!!! Best, Susan & Mark

May, 2017  We had our wedding here, so I might be biased, but the Terrace level rooms are the nicest I've ever stayed in (and probably ever will!) The Bridal Suite, my photos attached here, is just to die for. The HUGE private patio with views of the Cathedral... the beautiful artisan touches... The service is unmatched. The Concierge was lovely and became like part of the family! Trip Advisor,  Jordyn G

March, 2017  Everyone is still raving about what an amazing time they had, how wonderful the hotel was and how much they all loved Santa Fe! They all want to do it again next year on our anniversary!LOL! Everybody was such a pleasure to work with - especially Samie who we obviously worked the closest with . You guys have a great staff over there! Sean & Michael

January, 2017 We would like to thank you, especially, and the staff at La Fonda for a wonderful event. Every detail was perfect. All the guests commented on what a great time they had and I know we will be re-living it for many years. Anita at the front desk went out of her way to provide assistance in getting the "welcome" boxes delivered to our guests. Cindy and Patricia, the concierges on our floor, were always willing to help us with any questions or needs. Please pass on our thanks. We couldn't have done it without you! Liu & Patrick

August, 2016  Thank you for EVERYTHING. Saturday, August the 13th was the best day of my entire life. La Fonda on the Plaza will always hold a very special place in my heart. It was truly a fairytale wedding. Thank you for helping to make our dream wedding come true! I don't know what I would have done without you! Cheers, Hillary & Corey

May, 2016 Samie, we have received so many compliments on the wedding! You are the best and made it happen! Tamara & Derrick

May, 2016  Thank you Samie! And thank you again for everything...I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out. People are still talking about how perfect the venue and hotel was. I can't wait to come back for anniversaries! Kelsey & Dylan  

March, 2016  "It was a night to remember and everything was perfect. When I walked into La Terraza before the guests arrived, it was more beautiful than I could have imagined! I had hoped to get there that afternoon to help "direct things" (as if I were needed) and the other wedding happenings prevented that. I'm glad that happened. I would simply have been in the way of a setting up a masterpiece of a venue. Thank you for all you did to make it an extraordinary evening, Samie. You were the primary reason I chose La Fonda for our Rehearsal Dinner. It's easy to recognize when a seasoned pro knows her business...and is a great deal of fun on top of everything else!I hope to see you next time in Santa Fe this summer"Fondly, Debby

February, 2016 "Samie,Thank you for helping us achieve the most joyful time of our lives and 'best wedding ever' status from so many friends.You worked endlessly so we could achieve our vision of a "musical cabaret interrupted by a wedding".  And we did, a total triumph. And I have to effuse over not only your invaluable and friendly contribution but the warm help of the entire staff of La Fonda on the Plaza. You all work in a rather magical environment - or perhaps the staff makes it magical. Who knows, but I can say "thank you" to you with the greatest sincerity. With warmest regards, Fred and Ken ❤️

January, 2016 " I wanted to again thank you and your staff for all your help and support during my daughter's wedding. The flexibility that you and your staff displayed in adjusting to the last minute  cancellation  of the church wedding ceremony scheduled at the Cathedral Basilica, was very much appreciated. It appeared that the entire staff at the hotel (from the front desk to the event staff, restaurant staff, bellmen and parking garage staff) everyone went out of their way to accommodate  the wedding party and guests. Relatives and friends staying at the hotel all commented on the wonderful  service and gracious manner of all the employees at The La Fonda. Muchas gracias por tu ayuda, and please extend my sincere thank you to the entire staff at hotel. It was an experience that we will remember forever". Sincerely, Bob DeFelice

January, 2016 " I would like to thank the entire La Fonda staff for putting on such a special wedding for my son Justin Novotny. The hotel was magnificent, a true historic landmark. The people were friendly, the service was great. I hope to visit again one day and relive the special time we had there. Santa Fe is a magical and mystical place that will live in our hearts forever. Thank you again." Al Novotn
