How long have you been planning destination weddings?
I’ve been planning destination weddings for about 7 years.
Why did you choose to become a Destination Wedding Specialist?
Working with couples planning to be married is an incredible experience. They each have their own excitement which is absolutely catching!! There is so much hope with the couples I’ve worked with and I love their optimism.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
My favorite part of the job is seeing the photos the couples send to me. It’sknowing that their wedding was a huge success and I was fortunate enough to be a part of that.
Which destination is your favorite and why?
The Riviera Maya is a favorite place for me. The resorts I’ve worked with on the Riviera Maya have been doing destination weddings for a long time, and they know how to do them right!
Do you have a wedding story you would like to share with us?
Two weeks before their wedding in Cabo there was a hurricane that destroyed their resort. I was proactive and got the bride to let me move the wedding and 75 guests to Puerto Vallarta before Cabo was officially closed for repairs. Because we were ahead of the other weddings that needed to be move the wedding turned out beautifully. Below are the brides comments to me: “Michael and I are officially home in California from our trip and wedding, and we just wanted to take a moment to THANK YOU for all of your amazing help and support!!! The trip was honestly the best ten days of our lives (omg did you know that we got upgraded to a giant rooftop penthouse suite?!) and we just want to thank for help helping make all of it happen.
Do you have a quick tip for us?
The agents you choose to have in your program should be enthusiastic and love what they are doing because love is the name of the game when dealing with destination weddings.
