How long have you been planning destination weddings?
In 2004 a friend of mine asked me to plan her son’s destination wedding. Not only did I organize the wedding, I was also an invited guest. There is nothing better than having firsthand experience by being at the destination. I was part of all the preparations, meeting with the wedding planner, Choosing the reception dinner menu, the spot for the wedding, flowers, etc. The wedding day came and everything went smoothly with no pressure or panic. Since that day I have attended several other destination weddings.
Why did you choose to become a Destination Wedding Specialist?
I love making dreams come true. About 6 years ago I had the privilege of helping my daughter plan her wedding here for about 400 people and it turned out to be a huge success. After this experience and having attended several destination weddings, it was natural for me to become a Destination Wedding Specialist.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
My favourite part of the job is sitting down with the bride and groom, listening to their ideas and wishes for a dream wedding and then coming up with a plan that will Make that dream a reality for them without any stress. The best part is hearing all about the wedding when they return home, having them share their pictures and Videos of their special day. This is the best reward.
Do you have a quick tip for us?
I always advise my wedding couple not to stress over little things, to relax and enjoy their special day. Everything will flow smoothly, and to make sure they really enjoy their honeymoon!
