Book with KJ
We just returned from our destination wedding and it was fantastic! We booked it through Barrhaven Travel with a destination wedding specialist, KJ. She took care of all our needs and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend KJ to book your travel needs.— Tasmin & Reese
How long have you been planning destination weddings?
I started 10 years ago, initially with Sandals Weddings and over time I have expanded to different destinations and resorts.
Why did you choose to become a Destination Wedding Specialist?
I find learning about the couple’s life and helping them choose the perfect destination wedding to be very meaningful and rewarding.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
When a couple first comes to me, they are very nervous and filled with anticipation. They are not sure of what they want, or even where to start. With my expertise I can help guide them to the perfect destination. Planning a wedding can be an emotional roller coaster, and I enjoy leading them through the process; their excitement as we choose the right options is very energizing.
Which destination is your favorite and why?
I don’t really have a favorite, as I think the choice of destination is a personal one for each couple. Every destination and every Gazebo offers a different feeling for a unique wedding experience.
Do you have a quick tip for us?
Often when a couple plan their destination wedding, they plan for the maximum number of guests while considering the strictest budget of those attending the wedding to the point that they make so many compromises, it is no longer the wedding of their dreams. Couples need to remember that it is their once-in-a-lifetime event and choose what makes them happy; the guests will respect their choices and send their blessings if they aren’t able to attend and celebrate once the newlyweds return home!
