How long have you been planning destination weddings?
I became a travel agent 13 years ago with the intention of specializing in Destination Weddings & Honeymoons. What is more romantic and special than helping a couple plan the most important holiday & event of their lives together?
Why did you choose to become a Destination Wedding Specialist?
Thirteen years ago, I had a friend who planned her own destination wedding with the help of a travel agent. Unfortunately the bride spent the day in tears, the resort turned a blind eye, and the travel agent did not have enough experience in weddings to have helped avoid the situation in the first place. Right then and there I said to myself “you can do this!” and 13 years later, here I am having helped countless couples plan their dream day.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
My favourite part of the job is sharing ideas with my brides-to-be. I planned my own destination wedding two years ago (it was fantastic!) and have since had a wealth of ideas and tips to share to help make my brides’ day more unique and special for them.
Which destination is your favorite and why?
I am partial to the Mayan Riviera in Mexico…of course, I was married on the beach near Playa Del Carmen. This destination is so beautiful and diverse and is perfect if you have a group of guests joining you. There is something for everyone to do with a multitude of tours & great shopping, and many beautiful hotels to fit any budget.
Do you have a quick tip for us?
Trust in your travel agent’s advice and guidance in choosing the right resort for you. And also trust in your resort Wedding Coordinator…they plan hundreds of weddings of all types & sizes and really know what they are doing!
Pam is my savior!
My husband and I decided to do a destination wedding because we wanted to keep the costs down and keep things as stress free as possible. I never knew how much work there was to do with a wedding… even a destination wedding. Thank you Pam for making our wedding seem smooth and seamless!

She made our wedding so easy. We would (and WILL!) choose Pam for all our future travel getaways
Pam so kind and attentive to our 45 guests. Everyone in our wedding group was blown away by her. She always dealt with reminders, issues, ANYthing, so that we (the bride and groom) wouldn’t have to. She called our guests and kept them in tune with payment dates and reminders. Absolutely incredible!
— Tammy and Jonas
She really cared about our special day and wanted everything to be perfect for us
I couldn’t have planned our wedding without Pam’s support 100% through the whole process. She always got back to me and our guests in a timely fashion which was very important as our big day crept forward! She handled all our wedding guests flight bookings and questions. Thanks so much!
