Destination Wedding Specialist

Being in the travel industry for over twenty-five years, I am happy to fulfill my passion for travel by assisting fellow travelers in finding destinations that spark their interests, soothes their souls and satisfies their zest for adventure.

An Island Girl at heart, my expertise lies in the Caribbean with a magical connection to St. John, USVI. The Virgin Islands encompass the best of the old and new Caribbean with untouched beaches, historical ruins, world-class shopping, and renowned sailing conditions. Spending days on a sailboat hopping from island to island along the archipelago, I have visited most of the islands within the chain. From the pristine beaches of Anguilla to the towering Pitons in St. Lucia, each island’s unique flavor offers traits to satisfy anyone with an appetite for travel.

Most recently my work has focused on destination weddings, arranging the perfect ceremony in an idyllic setting with the happy couple surrounded by family and friends enjoying all the best resorts across the globe as well as creating custom European itineraries including river cruises and independent travel.

From a couple hoping for a romantic getaway, to festive girls’ trips and thrilling theme parks to entice the whole family, I can arrange dream vacations without my clients having to lift a finger. My ultimate goal is to hear happy reviews and know that I provided the ultimate vacation experience for my clients.

Road Trip in the Time of 'Rona - Part 4 Beachin'

Our next stop was the Clearwater/St. Pete Beach area. Our first night I had booked a funky, vintage beach motel, The Postcard Inn. It felt like a movie set, straight out of Gidget, with little astroturf sitting areas outside the door, quirky tiki huts and a laid-back vibe. I hadn’t spent...

Road Trip in the Time of 'Rona - Part 2 Gulf Coast

Although I have family in Louisiana and have visited the state several times, I have always steered clear of the swamp tours. The thought of seeing gators and snakes up close and personal has never appealed to me, however this was the one request my traveling partner had voiced. Being the...

My Fabulous Birthday trip to France!

Reviewed By Spacer - Durango, CO | Traveled to France ~ Europe
Tammy has been working in the travel industry for many years, and her eye for detail caught many issues and corrected them before we even left for our trip. This gave us such peace of mind when traveling overseas so that we could enjoy our trip even more! We traveled to four distinct areas of France and stayed 3-4 days in each of them so we didnt feel like we were just running from one place to the next and living out of a suitcase. She searched out boutique hotels and B&B's in our price range so we really had stellar accommodations and all of them employed staff that was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area we were staying in. It was a perfect mix of seeing all of the sites, combined with plenty of free time on our own to enjoy the beach or people watch in Parisian cafes. I couldn't have hoped for a more amazing way to spend my birthday!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Tammy Merrell responded:
Merci! Celebrating your birthday in France sounded amazing and I am so happy I could recommend some places that I thought to be fitting for the festivities. I am thrilled that you had a great birthday trip and look forward to helping you plan your next big adventure! Happy birthday and thank you, again!

A nice quiet “reset” get away in Perfect Weather!

The benefits of a travel agent!

Reviewed By Donna - Chesterfield, MO | Traveled to Mexico
Tammy has been an absolute blessing! We started using Travel Agents three years ago when we decided to take our family on an international trip. It was very important to me to have a travel agent helping us and advising us because we were traveling abroad with our kids and I wanted the safety net. Flash forward to COVID-19! Two of our scheduled trips have fallen in the middle of a pandemic! Tammy has jumped in to reschedule us only to have the travel company cancel our trips again...sometimes more than once! Tammy has been there every step of the way to make sure everything gets rebooked and has taken all the stress off of me!!! She is reassuring and patient with all my questions. Her calmness and persistence are so appreciated! We love Tammy!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Tammy Merrell responded:
Thank you so much for your kind words! You certainly have felt the effects of COVID-19 with the fun of rescheduling, and I appreciate your patience in standing by me as we get through the red tape, together. Clients like you make my job so rewarding. This nasty little virus has shaken the world, yet my faith in humanity remains when I hear such lovely praises! Again, I thank you for your kindness and bookings. We'll get you to the beach, soon! We are all in this, together!

Grace Under The Coronavirus Fire

Reviewed By Heather - MO | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
During the imminent Coronavirus crisis Tammy was able to get us an upgrade to a balcony room after hours on hold. When we knew the cruise was going to be possibly blocked from returning to US she spent 2 days getting us a credit and giving us much peace of mind.

Tammy was incredibly wonderful and we cannot wait to reschedule once things have calmed down.

Thank you Tammy!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Tammy Merrell responded:
You are most welcome, as I was so happy to be able to extend that upgrade to you even though ultimately coronavirus stepped in and put a glitch in your plans. Understanding and gracious clients like you make my job even more enjoyable and I cannot wait to get you rebooked for a well-deserved trip to Paradise! Thank you!
