Destination Wedding and Group Travel Consultant
You know that person, right?
The one who drafts a financial analysis and prioritized to do list, even for an infant’s birthday party? Well… that’s me. I am very passionate about planning, but I am even more passionate about how authentic travel can transform your perspective and enrich your life.
On every journey that I take not only do I discover other lands and cultures, I find out just a little more about myself. And that inspires me to keep traveling. From Argentina and Latvia to Morocco, Italy, China and Mexico, I’ve been blessed to have discovered over 30 countries (so far).
I am a romantic and I am truly in love with exploring this amazing world. And I deem myself fortunate to have started my 30 year professional career helping fellow romantics and explorers, and luckier still to be able to continue on that journey every day.
I have built a full service travel agency with a diverse team that can handle a broad range of travel requests. I specialize in Destination Weddings, and Romance Travel and Group Travel. Destination Weddings are personal to me. I literally got married in paradise-- on a pristine white sand beach on Grand Turk, in the Turks and Caicos to the sound of shivering palms and ocean waves. So when it comes to Destination Weddings, I love supporting others in achieving their dream wedding vision.
Other Romance Travel bookings include Honeymoons, Proposal and Anniversary Trips, and Travelling Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties. The group trips I organize range from milestone birthday celebrations to yoga retreats, family reunions, and church group travel.

Best Wedding Planner/Travel Agent!
From the beginning, Deirdre helped us for months by communicating and researching the most perfect hotel to fit our destination wedding needs. She spent hours emailing, calling to make sure every detail was perfect. She was so wonderful and patient walking us through the process of putting on a wedding from start to finish.
Our guests raved about working with her and planning out their travel plans. She sent detailed personalized itineraries to all of our guest. Many of my guests are now utilizing her expertise to plan other family trips and she helped us plan our honeymoon to Italy! Deirdre even made time to stop by my bridal shower to make a surprise visit which meant so much to us!
