Raquel created Wedding Savvy in 2002 to offer smart and savvy event consulting that was rooted in the best interest of the client. Due to her hard work and client care, her firm grew in clientele and in consultants. Raquel has carefully crafted a team of other talented, like-minded individuals. 

Raquel is a proud Cuban American who graduated from Frostburg State University and went on to earn her MBA from Loyola University of Maryland.  She created Wedding Savvy after serving as an event coordinator at a local hotel and saw a need for a savvier, more client focused business.  Raquel resides in Annapolis with her husband and their three sons and travels often to her Charlotte office in North Carolina.

She is an active member of her community volunteering in her children's  schools,  church, and her alma maters  as well as serves on the Governance Committee for the Hispanic Chamber of Conference.  

Raquel has had MANY memorable wedding moments, but one of the most unique is when she coordinated the Towson State Marching Band "marching" in right as the bride and groom said, "I do!"
