How long have you been planning destination weddings?
I have been making travel arrangements since 1979-my first Destination wedding was in Aspen Colorado in 1996. While the weather played havoc. All had a great time.
Why did you choose to become a Destination Wedding Specialist?
I opted to become a Destination wedding specialist as the course offered great suggestions to help the bridal party and the guests. I take the course annually to stay on top of trends to better serve my customers.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
My best part of the job is every aspect of the planning process. It is a happy occasion. Seeing the photos afterwards let me know of an event well done!
Which destination is your favorite and why?
My favorite destination is Jamaica...could be as I was married on the beach in Negril.
Do you have a wedding story you would like to share with us?
I once had a destination wedding set for Mexico. Two days before the group was scheduled to leave, a hurricane come through and destroyed the resort and most resorts in the area. I was able to get the entire group rebooked for Punta Cana in a similar hotel and the entire wedding and reception arranged before they left. A great reason why you should let an expert plan your destination wedding.
Do you have a quick tip for us?
Best tip I can provide is to use a travel expert when planning your Destination Wedding or Honeymoon
