How long have you been planning destination weddings?
I have been planning destination weddings for the last 4 years for couples all over the country.
Why did you choose to become a Destination Wedding Specialist?
I choose to become a Destination Wedding Specialist because of my passion for travel and I like knowing that I am doing something positive and impactful in peoples live; like helping them with one of the most special occasions in their lives, helping them with their wedding planning. I like making their dream into their reality.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
My favorite part of the job is helping the couple to find their perfect piece of paradise (the wedding location) and helping them to put it all together, and staying with the couple from start to finish.
Which destination is your favorite and why?
There are plenty of romantic places in the Caribbean; my favorite would have to be Jamaica. I like the culture, the people, and the food. I like that there is always something for everyone no matter what your preference may be.
Do you have a wedding story you would like to share with us?
My first wedding was for a friend. She knew that I had never planned a destination wedding. We helped each other along the way. We planned a wonderful wedding in Montego Bay. It turned out beautiful. After this I knew what I wanted to do.
Do you have a quick tip for us?
Have a budget ready. This way your specialist can help find your piece of paradise within your budget that will fit your needs. You don’t have to know exactly what you want but have some ideas in mind. If you don’t know that’s part of your specialist job to help you figure it out. Keep in mind this is your wedding, we want to be accommodating, but remember it’s all about you.
