About Me

I have been a travel counselor for almost 25 years. I am a “Certified Travel Agent” which is a designation earned through extensive training.

This also means I am qualified to help you with your plans. I have access to a lot of information to help you find the perfect wedding or honeymoon destination.

 

Why Work With Me

I have personally experienced many of the most popular destinations and have inside contacts at many of the resorts. I feel the relationships I have formed with the resort personnel has given me an edge in helping honeymooners get any possible upgrades or incentives.

With this, many of my past honeymooners are booking their anniversary trips and have referred other honeymooners to me. My experience in all facets of travel makes me a great choice to help with your plans!

    Thank you to Kathy and LoveShack Vacations for booking our honeymoon to St Lucia! Kathy has been so incredibly easy to work with and got back to us in a timely manner! She made our honeymoon easy and there were no issues! Such an amazing place to visit and we cannot wait to plan our next adventure!

  • John & Samantha’s Honeymoon

    The Level at Melia, Punta Cana

    We worked with Kathy from LoveShack Vacations to plan our honeymoon. She gave us lots of options to help us decide where to travel and we ended up picking The Level at Melia in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

    We really enjoyed working with her and LoveShack Vacations; all we had to do was give basic information about our budget and types of places we’d want to go and then just had to choose our favorite (which was difficult)! Kathy took care of the bookings and also gave us lots of advice before we left which was super helpful! They made planning our honeymoon easy and we absolutely loved the resort that was recommended!

  • Michael & Michelle’s Honeymoon

    Valentin Imperial Maya, Riviera Maya

    We booked our vacation through Love Shack Vacations after meeting Kathy at the bridal show, she was so helpful from the very beginning, giving us different ideas of resorts to look into, with emails breaking down all the different things that each resort had to offer. She was always just a phone call or email away with any questions or concerns I had. I felt like I was talking to a friend from the start! Sent out all of the information to us twice since we had a glitch with my husband’s name on his passport matching his ID on our end, and she dealt with the airlines and getting everything straightened out. Really appreciate everything she did for us and making our honeymoon / 1 year anniversary a smooth booking process!!! Thank you very much, it was wonderful!!

  • Andrew & Abby’s Honeymoon

    Valentin Imperial Maya, Riviera Maya

    Thanks again for your help with our honeymoon.  Everything went very smooth on the whole trip and we absolutely loved the resort.  We definitely want to go back there.  We were so spoiled at the Valentin we feel like if we went to another place we might be let down compared to that place!
  • Andrew and Olivia’s Honeymoon

    Excellence, Punta Cana

    Punta Cana was AMAZING!!! The Excellence was way more than we expected it to be. It honestly set a new standard for future vacations. We had such an amazing time. We can’t wait to go back next year! We will be contacting you again in the future for the rest of our vacations I’m sure!

  • Hugo and Naomi’s Anniversary

    Riviera Maya (Secrets Capri)

    Thank you so much for arranging our anniversary trip to Mexico! Hugo and I had an amazing time! The Secrets Capri resort was fantastic! It was relaxing and everyone who worked there was SO nice! They really made our stay memorable! Hugo and I are already talking about planning another out of country trip. Not sure where yet but we will definitely be calling you when we are ready to book!

  • Tom and Kristen’s Destination Wedding

    Punta Cana (Secrets Royal Beach)

    I don’t even know where to begin – our trip to Punta Cana and the wedding was AMAZING!! Secrets Royal Beach was incredible. Everything with the wedding went even better than we could have ever expected. The location, cocktail hour, pictures and video and reception were all perfect. We wouldn’t change a thing. And the resort itself was perfect – just what we wanted. Everyone in our group absolutely loved it. We had the best wedding, honeymoon and family vacation all rolled in to one! We can’t thank you enough for guiding us through this process and booking our trip and that of our family members. You made everything so easy for all of us and we appreciate it so much! And thank you so much for the sweet wedding card you sent – that was so thoughtful!
