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 to take 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!!"

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.

Ireland trip
Tina was great. She answered all questions well and was available to answer questions at a moments notice. Also very helpful in setting up our itinerary.

Tina Kennedy responded:
Thank you Mike for taking the time out of your busy schedule to submit my review. I really do appreciate it as well as giving me the opportunity to book your entire family to Ireland this summer. I enjoyed planning your personal day by day itinerary including all the many highlights Ireland has to offer. Based on our recent conversation, it sounds like this will not be the last time you travel to Europe! Tina

We have booked two diving trips to Mexico through Tina, and every request we had was fulfilled to the smallest detail. We did have problems on our first trip totally unrelated to Tina's assistance, and when we got home and voiced out disappointment, Tina got on the phone. We received reimbursements form the various venues. We feel so confident in her, we booked our first European river cruise for Oct. to celebrate our 30th, and have no doubt it will be the perfect celebration/vacation.

Palifitos Over The Water Bunglows
Tina was excellent throughout the travel booking process. She provided a full review of the property and kept me informed of any change or adjustments as we went along.
She contacted the resort in advance and made sure all honeymoon amenities were taken care of prior to our arrival.
She also has a thorough understanding of what we were looking for in a resort and uses her experience to assist us in finding the best resort that meets our needs. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Tina to friends and colleagues. She was outstanding.
