Testimonials

  • Aside from being friendly, easy to reach and genuinely excited for you, the best part was working with Nicole during the hard times. We had to scrap plan A and go back to square one. Nicole supported us every step of the way, she was empathetic, solution focused and creative in her approach. She made me feel heard when I was upset. I know counseling is not an official part of her job, but it's critical to have when dealing with brides, wedding planning and group travel. Nicole will get the job done as best she can. She is on your side. She cares. She will support you!

  • Nicole was very helpful with all my questions, and I did have a lot! I had a large group of people with very different schedules and she was very patient with all of them, providing a very friendly and inviting atmosphere. She had lots of great advice and recommendations for different resorts and always kept our budget in mind. Without Nicole’s help, I would still be trying to decide where to get married LOL.
