What Our Couples Are Saying


“My fiance and I had the BEST experience working with Sarah to help plan our honeymoon in Jamaica. She recommended several great options, always giving us the best room/flight deals, and was able to perfectly meet our needs in what we were looking for in the perfect honeymoon. She went above and beyond…and was super responsive! She even gave us many tips and things about the place we are going to because she was so familiar with it. We will most definitely be working with her again for future vacations.”

Emily T. from St. Clairsville, OH


“Sarah is awesome to work with! She handled all our needs and gave us awesome choices for our honeymoon in Riviera Maya. I’ve never planned a trip out of the country before, so having Sarah to help us plan our trip was the best choice ever. She took the stress away from planning, was quick to respond, and got exactly what we envisioned to be the perfect honeymoon!”

Connie M. - Johnstown, PA


“Sarah is AMAZING! She listened to what we wanted for our Aruba honeymoon and adjusted the things we weren’t into. My husband and I have never been out of the country and Sarah handled everything for us- the best part was how on top of everything she was and how she communicated it to us. We didn’t have to think, we just got on a plane and had the most amazing week. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone and everyone who is trying to plan an unforgettable trip!”

Erin G. - Pittsburgh, PA


“My fiancé and I decided on a destination wedding about six months into our engagement. I had actually reached out to a few people before finding Sarah. I found her because I was on a Facebook wedding page and people were just raving about her! Now that I am working with her I understand why and can’t say enough good things. Sarah has gone ABOVE and beyond for us and there truly is no amount of appreciation to thank her for making our wedding planning a breeze! Even my guests have all good things to say and think she is so sweet! If you are considering a destination wedding or trip, HIRE SARAH. It will be one of the best decisions!

Cierra S. - Charleston, SC


“I just wanted to thank you so much for setting up an amazing honeymoon in Maui for us! Especially with all the date changes and new restrictions, you’re information was so helpful and told me step by step exactly what to do. We had such an amazing time, we LOVED the resort! It was gorgeous, not too crowded, clean, our ocean view was AMAZING! Thank you so so much for everything, we couldn’t have done it without your help and knowledge!”

Meredith T. - Turtle Creek, PA


“Thank you so much for all of your help, I wholeheartedly believe that our honeymoon in St. Lucia was so perfect because you took the time to get to know what we wanted, took care of the details and gave us such good advice and tips! I think we are talking about another vacation sometime soon with some friends of ours, so we'll definitely be back!”

Kaylee F. - Blairsville, PA
