Honeymoon & Destination Wedding Specialist

My son's Destination Wedding in Riviera Maya
My son's Destination Wedding in Riviera Maya

My specialty is booking amazing destination weddings. I take them very seriously, and I go the extra mile by making sure couples have everything they want and more during their special occasion. I was also the first person to receive the Honeymoon and Destination Wedding Specialist designation from Travel Leaders which is one of the largest travel agency networks in North America. 

Every year, I travel to the Caribbean Islands attending onsite destination wedding workshops so I know exactly what my clients are getting. I inspect the properties, learn about their offerings, and take note of the surrounding area to ensure that everything is of a high quality. I have booked many personalized weddings with groups ranging from 20 to 100 people, and each wedding is completely customized to fit the couple and their group.

I work closely with all of the resorts to guarantee your satisfaction, and I’ve created my own bride and groom checklist to make sure you love every moment of your big day. I will take care of all documents, bookings, and extras so your day is stress-free and unforgettable.

Some of the most popular places I’ve booked include:

  • Mexico

  • Jamaica

  • Punta Cana

  • Hawaii

  • and more!

What makes me different from any other travel agent?

First, I was the Mother of the Groom at a Destination Wedding in the Riviera Maya at AmResort's Secrets Maroma, that I planned.  So I know from all perspectives and view points of what it takes to create your special day.

My goal is to transform your wedding dreams into a reality! 



"Thanks Tina! We had a fantastic time in Punta Cana. We loved the resort. We were upgraded to the VIP section of the resort which had its own private pool and bar. Amazing room and place. We enjoyed all the specialty restaurants. My husband could wear shorts to the restaurants. No dress code. Also no dinner reservations. It was reservation free! We ate at the specialty restaurants every night. That was very nice. We went to the buffet for breakfast which was delicious also. fresh mangos. Omelettes made the way you want them The Michael Jackson show and the International show were good along with the drinks. Beach was beautiful! Lots of chairs. We had a great time! Thanks again!!"

My Reviews

Tina picked a winner!
Tina Kennedy helped us plan a February, 2019 trip to Secrets Cap Cana and she sure picked a winner! The weather was perfect and the beach just beautiful. Our room was also just great and the people there are ‘over-the-top’ nice and helpful. Tina does a great job at preparing us for what to expect on our trip through her periodic communications from the time we book until just days before our departure. We appreciate Tina and the great support staff at Travel Leaders.

Train trip thru the Canadian Rockies
We have worked with Tina for many years covering many locations. She truly care about her clients having a wonderful time and is not afraid to tell you if your own plans might not be a good idea (like traveling to Ireland in March!).
She always finds the best trip available and is generous with providing her clients with brochures on different travel companies. We can always count on
Tina to check in with us before we leave to make sure we have all the proper documents and any last minute details. You are in good hands with Tina!

Thank you Susan & Nick for taking the time out of your day to submit a review. It has always been fun planning your trips over the past several years and I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your last two trips you have taken, one to Ireland during the month of May and recently returning from the Canadian Rockies. I always look forward to getting together with you and seeing all of your pictures! As always thank you for your business!
