Wedding Planner and Dream Maker RUI MOTA PINTO

Rui Mota Pinto is undoubtedly a weighty name in the universe of marriage while Wedding Planner.
With numerous international prizes and a series of innovative projects, this visionary, with regard to the celebration of love, has a prestigious place at the table of the National Wedding Council in New York.
We have been talking to Rui, one of the most honored members of the International Wedding Planners Belief IWP community, in order to understand what is driving the creation and development of dream weddings.

How does the whole planning process happen and what are the most important phases of it?
The first contact with the couple is crucial to me. It is only possible to create a perfect day for someone if there is empathy and some degree of intimacy with each couple's story. The process begins with a blank sheet without any reference.
It's just the story of those two people, their aspirations and their motivations for the big day.
I believe that a marriage is a junction of the Past, the Present and the Future.
Who were each of those people, their roots and their family stories, who are the couple these days that chose me to tell their story and who they want to be in the future and how they want to tell their story in the day . This junction of these 3 moments with the whole identity of the couple and my entire identity "makes happen" a unique concept and that in fact represents those 2 people.

What part of the process gives you the most pleasure?
The conceptualization and the experience of the day, no doubt. Starting from a love story and turning it into an idea, a concept and a timeline that is then adapted to create the perfect day is what gives me the most pleasure.
All this emotional and creative surroundings is something that is not possible to describe and nourishes this passion.

What is the importance of hiring a Wedding Planner?
Realizing the importance of hiring a Wedding Planner is first and foremost understanding his real functions and added value.
When it comes to a professional Wedding Planner, its supremacies range from the creative side, to planning management through budget management, to financial and contractual advantages with suppliers.
He will be responsible not only for this management but for negotiating the respective contracts and details.
For the couple, the planning experience of a wedding should be fun and no one better than a Wedding Planner to ensure this "stress free" process.
But the choice of a Wedding Planner should be made by properly certified, specialized and experienced professionals. Choosing an amateur or inexperienced person results in most cases in more headaches and more stress for the couple and a result of disillusionment.
We often say among professionals that "If you think that a specialized professional is too expensive wait until you find out the true cost of an amateur"!

How do you transform the ideas of the engaged couple, which can (often) be unbearable, in a result that does not disappoint their expectations?
I do not believe in impossible ideas.
I do believe that certain ideas need to be adapted and reorganized to materialize.
Whether for technical or financial issues, these plans can always be recreated and the expectations of the couple must be overcome and elevated.
The basic notion of the dream is the same, to make possible something that was thought impossible.
I believe, therefore, that for a marriage to be truly unique, the starting point must be totally free and devoid of any preconceived reference.
My work is beyond the conceptualization of all this, to make these dreams come true and to reorganize them, to recreate them, to readapt them so that they can leave the dimension of the dream for the reality.

What is the biggest challenge in your work as a Wedding Planner?
The creation of something distinct and unique for each couple is undoubtedly the greatest challenge and also my greatest passion.
The development of conceptual, distinct and as different marriages as great productions, vintage, beach weddings, medieval or car shows, more intimate, in libraries or with irreverent and radical concepts is something that constantly challenges me and which represents the greatest challenge because it requires of me a constant reinvention of myself and of my own concepts. In the end all the stories I tell needs to have "a title"!
I believe that there are no equal passions, so I never develop two equal marriages.
They should reflect the history of each couple and the concept of a marriage should be that - the title and the script of that love story!

Wedding Tailor & Planner Rui Motta Pinto

With the banalization of the term Wedding Planner I decided to make a small rebranding to the brand by assuming what I truly am - creator of weddings by measure.

The term Tailor was chosen with the intention of including a vision of "craftsman" of "tailor made"

The image was created in calligraphy to represent something done from scratch, to convey exactly a notion of an irrepeatable concept without being in my own hands.

This is a change that was in my head for a long time and that I am very proud of.

I continue to be the same professional, with the same philosophy, concept and passion. Now with an image that I believe represents me even better.

I hope you like it!
