Destination Wedding and event Planning

Traveling has been an integral part of my upbringing. Every year, my family would spend months imagining our trips before embarking on them. Sometimes, they would be spontaneous too. We would pack our bags and head to the beach or the mountains for leisure or a family reunion. 
I’ll never forget the excitement and anticipation in the weeks leading up to our departure — imagining the new sights, sounds, flavors and experiences that were on the horizon. You could say, my fondest and brightest memories were shared with familiar faces in new places.
Today, I seek to infuse that imaginative spirit and excitement into every destination event I plan. It is the joy of my career to connect with couples from all over the world and conjure the perfect setting and style to tell their stories while creating a new one. 

For me, this is the nectar of life. It is simply the best life has to offer — to travel, explore, connect with the local culture and each other — all while eating and drinking the best the area has to offer. Really, what could be better?
