About me

bride in swing
This is me on my wedding day, the most perfect day... I wish I could re-live it!
My name is Marianne Fischel-Essa, I am a wedding planner; your eyes, voice and presence in Costa Rica while you are away, dreaming about your destination wedding. 

Born and raised in Costa Rica, I am fluent in both english and spanish. I know all the venues and special locations, vendors, all you might need for your wedding. My love for the ocean, sun, and peace brought me to Santa Teresa 16 years ago. With a degree in Hotel Management I have worked at some of the most prestigious hotels, thus finding my way to my true passion... event planning, wedding creations, and special occasions. Not only can I use my organizational skills but can combine my knowledge in design (a major I did half way through a while ago!) am eager to transform an idea into reality, and create beauty! I have been a part of hundreds of couples' big day and making it happen. 

Bliss Weddings is Costa Rica's wedding planner. We cater to all brides and events; big, small, elegant, rustic... it is my biggest joy to find and create the perfect scenario for the couple. To make their vision a reality. We can also help with travel arrangements, rehearsal dinners, breakfasts, etc.

I am fortunate to be able to work with a team of wonderfully talented individuals as my assistants for events. They allow me to move around and make everything flow together perfectly. I also work with professionals in flowers, the best rental companies, photographers, caterers, and all those important people that will your day just what you dreamed it would be.
