"Do. Or do not. There is no try."

I wish we could use the force to plan your wedding...but jedi mind tricks will only get you so far.

At BodaMaestra, we understand there are no re-do's on your wedding day.

"Great planning starts with thoughtful decisions. Thoughtful decisions lead to great events. Great events make for happy couples."

Once I completed my Reiki training, a powerful sense of peace came over me, and a new calling emerged. I realized that it was a no-brainer to pair the strategies of peace, relaxation and self-improvement with the wedding planning process. 

I thought to myself... if I lead planning meetings with a sense of calm using all the techniques I know, what a great way to support couples so that they can truly feel empowered and at ease as they enter the next phase of their lives together. And thus, holistic planning was born in April of 2021.

Having worked with couples for years to plan their weddings, I was very familiar with all of the stresses couples encounter - from an overwhelming number of decisions to unsolicited opinions.

Just about every couple can find their energy diminished during the planning process and experience sensitivity, anger, or stress.
