About Me

Are you dreaming of the perfect tropical beach wedding?  Imagine lush floral arrangements with exquisite tropical décor, ocean breezes blowing through your hair, and breathtaking scenery all with your closest family and friends surrounding you as you start your happily ever after with your best friend and love of your life.

Maybe you have been visualizing a dreamy, glamorous honeymoon since you were a little girl.  Envision yourself walking along the beach hand in hand while the waves splash up against your feet or relaxing in a hammock together with your favorite tropical drink in hand listening to the sounds of the waves as the sun is setting in the distance.

Or is your dream to have a beautiful, detailed, colorful South Asian wedding?  Imagine your Sangeet in an amazingly decorated ballroom where you will take delight in the delicious Indian dishes prepared special for this event, dance to the funkiest and loudest Bollywood music, and where your guests can find a henna artist to receive a beautiful mehndi design.  Then picture yourself sitting in your stunningly decorated mandap with the ocean in the background and hundreds of your closest friends and family surrounding you as you participate in your very detailed wedding ceremony.

You are smart and successful and you thought you could plan this whole romantic expedition all on your own — you are also extremely busy and all of the options on the internet are so overwhelming and perhaps you are feeling like you don’t even know where to start.  You just don’t have the time or energy to sort through it all and make sure that the exotic getaway you have been dreaming of is accomplished.  That’s where I come in….

I am a Romance Travel Designer and my passion is to assist you in designing the most amazing and unforgettable romantic escape that you have been dreaming of your whole life.  During your complimentary Dream Romantic Escape Session I ask questions that help me get to know YOU.  Then I do the research and assist you in choosing the resort that is perfect for YOU so you can sit back and rest easy knowing that all of the details are taken care of and everything will be just as you imagined.

Why Work With Me

Your wedding day is one of the MOST important days of your life.  Romantic getaways are many times considered once in a lifetime experiences so you don’t want to leave the planning of such a special event like your destination wedding or honeymoon to chance.  When you work with me, you are working with someone who really cares.  When I plan a romantic getaway for my clients, I treat it as if I were planning my own vacation.  My passion is to help you create memories that you talk about for years to come and to make your trip enjoyable and stress free.

Benefits My Clients Experience

– You work hard for your money.  You can be confident that when you book with me your travel dollars are being spent wisely and you are getting a great value.

–  You will have peace of mind knowing that assistance is available to you before, during, and after your travels.

– I travel several times a year to experience destinations and resorts for YOU.  This first-hand experience helps me to see the resorts through the eyes of my clients, to stay current, and ultimately match you with the resort that is perfect for YOU.

– I realize you are a hard working professional and may not be available nine to five.  Therefore, I do have a flexible schedule and am available many evenings and weekends by appointment to assist you with your travel plans.

– You can enjoy the planning process because you know that travel specialists and wedding professionals are handling all of the details.  I will be the single point of contact for the travel plans for you and your guests.  I pride myself on responding in a timely manner and I will be there, from beginning to end, for you, your grandparents, your maid of honor, your photographer – whoever is a part of your wedding.  Then I will match you up with a wedding professional at the resort or destination of your choice to assist you in planning the wedding details.

How I Got Started in Romance Travel

When I first started as a travel specialist, I decided to specialize in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Hawaii.  Although I enjoy booking all types of trips to these destinations, I have a special place in my heart for romance travel as these trips have so much significance and meaning.  It is so exciting to see engaged couples planning one of the most important days of their lives together when planning a destination wedding, newlyweds planning their first big trip together as a married couple on their honeymoon, and those that have been together for many years celebrating a very special occasion such as a milestone anniversary or just taking time out for each other to keep their love strong.

I love being able to lend a hand to my clients and lessen the stress and frustration that comes with planning a big event or vacation.  They can just sit back, relax, and enjoy while I take care of all of the details.  Romance travel has so much potential to create lasting memories and it makes me so happy that I can be a part of creating these special trips and memories for my clients and that is why I decided to become a Romance Travel Specialist.

    Sandals Ochi Beach Resort, Jamaica

    First of all, we had an amazing time!! The flights to Jamaica went really well and we actually got in to Montego Bay a little early.  It was both of our first time doing an all-inclusive resort and it will definitely be hard to do anything other than that in the future! We were very happy that we did the Club MoBay on arrival, it was definitely worth it. The weather was amazing, about 85-90 every day and only one day was rainy here and there through the afternoon.  It didn’t stop us from doing anything though as we were either already in the pool or ocean.  We went to most of the entertainment at the amphitheater each night – the Steel Drum band was definitely a highlight that we were happy we went to.  We also did the Beach Party one of the nights.  The food there was really good and it was a great atmosphere with all of the guests having a great time.  We also went to the chocolate/white party at the Manor pool.  We couldn’t believe how much chocolate and deserts there were, it was so good!  Dale and I are beer people and halfway into the trip we were getting a little bored with just having Red Stripe for beer, so after talking to one of the bartenders one night, the next night he brought us a couple of other Jamaican beers to have. The only time we left the resort was for our trip to Dunn’s River Falls.  It was so much fun!!  It was challenging, but beautiful and we would definitely recommend that everyone do it at some point in their life.  It was a great experience and a memory we will never forget.  The resort was a perfect mix of relaxation and fun for us. We will definitely keep you in mind the next big trip we take.

    “You made us feel more relaxed. My mind felt at ease knowing I could call or email you at any time if we needed help. We could always rely on you for promptly answering ANY questions we had. You were always organized and on-top of things.  Our honeymoon was unforgettable, thanks to you, Carissa!”

    “Our trip to Oahu and Maui – WOW!  I cannot even begin to tell you how incredible it was and how much we enjoyed ourselves.  Truly a spectacular time, and I sincerely appreciated all you did for us.  Travel was a breeze, and everything was so well coordinated – we could not have asked for a better experience.  From the initial email to the final pre-travel prep call, I was never concerned about our travel plans because you thought of everything and were always available to answer questions.  The last day of our trip was an adventure, but knowing we had support to assist us was such a relief.  We were still able to enjoy our day and not have to worry about revising travel plans.”
