Planning a wedding is no easy feat. As much as brides want to be completely hands-on with their big event, some brides realize that things would be a lot easier for them if they enlist the help of a professional coordinator or planner. And for Trina Catolico-San Pascual's team at Eventos Expertos, making things easier for the marrying couple is their utmost concern.
At a young age, Trina gained experience and honed her passion for planning for special events, such as school fairs, sports fests, and proms. When she got engaged, her penchant for organizing events was awakened, as she couldn't seem to contain her excitement and eagerness to attend to every single detail of her wedding. Friends who saw how Trina poured her heart into planning the event commended her efforts--and eventually, Trina decided to establish a professional events team. Back then, the group was then called E*perts Events.
The team started managing private parties, but when a client asked them to handle a corporate event, Trina saw her team's potential to venture into bigger things. "That is when I realized, that other than [handling] weddings and debuts, my team can also manage a corporate social event. I decided to get two partners to help me manage clients both for the retail and corporate market," shares Trina. She then changed the company's name to Eventos Expertos, which was Spanish for "experts on events."
The Eventos Expertos team has shown its ability to accommodate all sorts of events. Trina shares, "We try to make [each event] as unique and personalized as possible. When I get all the details, I come up with a story plot, [which] includes all the details for the event, such as color motif, outfit, and styling, among others." Moreover, Trina says that as events specialists, they don't simply execute ideas thrown their way. They study every viable idea and check if it suits the needs of their client.
As willing and passionate as the team is to take on challenging projects, Trina asserts that neither coordinators and planners aren't fairy godmothers that can grant all that the client wishes in an instant. While they entertain ideas and suggestions, at the end of the day, the team executes what is realistic with the available resources. In addition, Trina says that even well-organized events can have minor hitches, but couples just need to learn to let go and allow their coordinators to deal with the situation. After all, it is the Eventos Expertos team's goal to make the preparations and the big day as hassle-free and enjoyable as possible for their clients.
