how we can help
You may be asking yourself, why do I need a destination wedding specialist? Destination weddings are definitely a little different than a traditional wedding. They consist of a ceremony, reception, vacations for the wedding couple and their guests, and a honeymoon, all rolled into one! There are several distinct advantages to using a good destination wedding specialist.

Long Time Vendor Relationships

Our goal is to guide you through the planning process with ease and excitement, focusing on all the important details so that you can focus simply on each other. After all, we're not just planning a trip, we're planning a whole life experience. Do you really want to leave that to chance?
We can manage all aspects of planning your Destination Wedding event, from discovering the perfect venue, assisting with event design, vendor management, plus travel planning for you and your guests. We've also be known to dabble in a little counselling, helping smooth over any uncomfortable family drama!
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.
