What types of weddings do you specialize in?

Why do couples love working with you?
LUXE is a group of experienced travel consultants, wedding planners, graphic and web designers and photographers. Our team is equipped with the most up to date resources and knowledge of trends and developments in destination weddings. We are a full-service firm designed to ensure that each destination wedding we plan is as unique as our clients.
What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
We are a collective group at LUXE and speaking for the whole team, it’s the connection of working with a bride’s vision and seeing it through to reality. And being an integral part of someone’s extremely important day! We love people.
How did you get started?
I was planning my own destination wedding in Jamaica when I realized there was no service that existed that met my needs. Hence, LUXE was born and grew from a few referral clients to where we are today. We entered the marketplace at the right time, as destination weddings grew from random elopements to full-fledged events away!
What budget range do you cater to?
What typically happens at the beginning of the process when someone contacts you?
When you inquire with LUXE, we will phone you to explain our services and answer your specific questions. Once hired, you are set up with a senior planner to choose your destination, and secure a hotel contract and wedding date. Once those key pieces are in place, the planning begins, save the dates are sent and we are off to the races.
I cannot adequately express how utterly thrilled we were with every piece of our experience. From the smallest detail to the grandest gesture. The people, the location, the food, the flowers … the list goes on and on. It wasn’t simply just the remarkably gorgeous wedding (I could not have dreamed of it being more perfect) but every single day and hour we were there.
Our family and friends were constantly impressed and overwhelmed by the quality and grace of the staff, Let alone all the amenities and events … we are really a hit right now! Over and over, I sang your praises and rightfully so. Not only did you take all the work out of a destination wedding, you made every moment we were there absolutely enjoyable. Truly, it was all taken care of … honestly, every little piece was covered.
The entire time leading up to the trip I knew I was in good hands with you and from the moment we arrived I knew that you had similarly left us in good hand. We could not have done this without you. I wish you knew how very grateful we are. You have a real talent and I feel so lucky and honored to have worked with you.
Take care, Valerie
I just wanted to say I am so sooo happy Jamie and I met you and we are beyond lucky to have gotten you has our wedding planner. You gave us the wedding of our dreams. I could not have imagined anything more beautiful. It literally took my breath away. Thank you is not adequate enough to say what you did for us, but I’ll say it anyways. Thank you for all your hard work, your patience, your vision and your friendship over this past year. And for keeping Jamie and I sane because we would have had zero clue what to do without you!
You are amazing at what you do and more than that, you are such an amazing and beautiful person. I really hope we keep in touch. Our guests had nothing but incredible things to say about their week in Turks…thanks for making that happen and for making everything go so smoothly, which I know is next to impossible with such a big group. Thank you just isn’t enough to express the gratitude we feel! I can’t believe it’s all over. How happy are you that you won’t have to put up with a million emails a day from us?? haha. We would really love to keep in touch.
From the bottom of my heart, and I know you have heard this a million times, I am so thankful for all your work over the past 2 years to make Sept 13th the best day of my life and Sasha’s life. We are blissfully happy and feel so blessed that we were able to share this experience with our family and friends and have created indispensable memories. Whoever your boss is, tell them you deserve a raise and a trip to the Island!
