I started working with Carrie and Zach in the summer of 2018.
Carrie is originally from Evansville, IN, and some of her family still lives here. Zach’s family lives in Texas. Due to their military background, they have friends scattered all around the US and the world.
Carrie and Zach decided to use my services because they “felt most comfortable” with me as I am familiar with Sandals Resorts. When they contacted me they already had the idea that they were going to have their wedding at Sandals Ochi Beach Resort.
They didn’t need assistance with the wedding piece; they needed assistance with the travel portion for their family and friends. Carrie and Zach work, and they felt like they didn’t have enough time to also “work” on their wedding. It takes a lot of time to put travel reservations together for multiple rooms. They ended up having 16 rooms, for a total of 32 people, travel to Jamaica for their destination wedding.
When I am starting to work with my engaged couples, one thing I always stress is that no only will guests have questions about the wedding, but they will have several questions about the resort and travel in general. One way I prep guests is to put them on a monthly newsletter specifically related to the destination wedding: giving information about what to expect at the airport, how to find their ground transportation, information about the resort, timeline for wedding events, etc.
The picture at the top of this blog is of the happy couple and their guests standing outside of the over-water wedding chapel!
It was a pleasure to work with this group and I wish Carrie and Zach many happy years together!
