Love from Stephanie's Clients
“I cannot say enough good things about working with Stephanie. I was skeptical at first to use a travel agent thinking ‘I can do all this by myself,’ but I am so very happy that I gave her a chance. She handled a cruise for us so well that we didn't even think twice about letting her book our honeymoon. Every last detail is taken care of. The great thing about her is also that she has been to so many different locations/hotels/resorts/etc — she can give a first-hand account of the place!”
— Janet & Kenny, Greenville, TN
“AMAZING! - Stephanie has been incredible to work with. From the very beginning, she talked with us about what kind of resort we were looking at, then gave us options, reviews, pros, and cons of different resorts. She was extremely knowledgeable about the areas and different resort ownership groups and what they have to offer. She is extremely professional, efficient and flexible to work with. She booked our 50+ group for our wedding without a hitch and when a hurricane came through the day before the wedding, she handled it with ease and made sure everyone was calm and taken care of so that they made their flights to the wedding. She genuinely cares about making sure your vacation/wedding/honeymoon is a dream come true! I will recommend her to anyone (and already have) and we will be using her for all our future travel needs! Thank you Stephanie!!”

THE TAVENNERS' AUSTRALIAN HONEYMOON
Chase and Brittany came to me with their heart set on honeymooning in Australia. They weren’t quite sure how to pull it all together, to get the most of the time they had, and also allow time to indulge and relax and newlyweds. Talking more in our consultation they had a few specifics on their bucket list and the rest they turned over to me.
WHAT WAS BOOKED FOR CHASE AND BRITTANY
The Tavenners went on a 15-night dream honeymoon to Australia. It was specifically designed to fit their lifestyle and deliver the must-haves they described to me. Starting in Sydney at the Shangri-La Hotel, they arrived in style. 5 nights to take in all that this city has to offer. The Sydney Bridge climb (amazing experience by the way), Bike Tour to get acclimated around the city, a day tour to see the incredibly stunning Blue Mountains, surf lessons at Bondi beach, a dinner cruise on the Sydney Harbor, and time to visit other areas of the city, including a favorite, The Rocks.
Next up, a change of pace, to relaxation and indulgence. 3 nights on Hamilton Island, staying at Qualia. This is true paradise. The food, the setting, sunsets and for sure the accommodations, to die for! The last part of their trip took them to Port Douglas (in the tropical north). Here they spent 5 nights at the Pullman Cove Sea Temple, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. With leisure time to explore Cairns and Port Douglas, a day trip out to the reef to see all the incredible sea life. Also a day trip to Daintree Rainforest for adventure, zip lining, hiking, and interacting with wildlife. What trip to Australia is complete without snuggling a koala, feeding a kangaroo or seeing a crocodile in action. Lastly, a Hot Air Balloon ride at dawn. Seeing the picturesque landscape above the Atherton Tablelands and taking time to breathe in the wide-open spaces. What better way to spend your very important honeymoon time? Chase and Brittany even brought home the most precious memories of all, photos from a professional shoot while in Sydney!
I'm not sure I could say enough amazing things about Stephanie! She was wonderfully helpful the enter time, very knowledgeable, and extremely easy to communicate with. She set us up with an amazing 2-week Australian Honeymoon that we will never forget. She even helped us change our flight arrangements last minute when we had a situation arise and needed to come home two days early. Highly recommend her to everyone, and I know we will be using her for our next big trip!
CLAY AND STEPHANIE'S HONEYMOON
When I met with Clay and Stephanie they wanted a very different honeymoon and were torn between cold weather in the north, or tropical in the south. What they did know is that active/adventure had to be part of it. They are both very active and enjoy fitness, wanting to continue that on their travels, but preferably outdoors. We narrowed it down to the Islands of Tahiti and skiing in the Italian Alps.
WHAT WAS BOOKED FOR CLAY AND STEPHANIE
The Baswells went on a 9-night winter honeymoon in Italy. Skiing in the Italian Alps won their hearts and fit their dream perfectly.
Starting in the north and moving south made their itinerary very logical and structured, with the option to relax at the end. In the small town of Cortina d’ Ampezzo, they stayed 5 nights at the Grand Hotel Savoia. A luxury hotel located in the Dolomites.
With access to ski equipment, lifts, etc. they skied as much as they wanted. They also had time to relax and wander the very small village, but oh what a village.
Small cafes, luxury shops, all with a mountain backdrop everywhere you turn.
The cuisine they enjoyed in Cortina needs a complete chapter on its own. It’s very different in this region, allowing them to have a great variety as they traveled through Italy. From Cortina, they had a brief stop in Venice.
Enough time for a private gondola ride and then onto the train to Rome. They spent the rest of their time in Rome, 4 nights in the city center.
During this time, they had a great combination of tours and leisure time. From a small group morning tour of the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica, to a night tour in a Vespa viewing the majestic city at night.
Finishing up their Rome adventure walking the streets to explore the many historical sites by day. Lastly, participating in an authentic cooking class, starting at a local market to purchase all necessary ingredients, meat from the best meat in the city, and on to the chef’s private home in the city where they prepared and indulged in their creation after.
Such a great variety of experiences in one trip, and a very memorable start to their marriage.
Stephanie did a wonderful job planning our honeymoon. There are no words to describe how awesome it was! We had so much fun! Incredible activities and number one service. It was exactly what we wanted, and more!
JOE AND LAUREN'S HONEYMOON
Joe and Lauren weren’t quite sure exactly where they wanted to celebrate their honeymoon, but they did know it had to be AMAZING! Talking more in our consultation, they also were very interested in being able to connect with the locals. Feeling like they were part of the culture, at home as soon as they arrived and having the opportunity to join in on local traditions.
WHAT WAS BOOKED FOR JOE AND LAUREN
The Speers went on a 11-night AMAZING honeymoon to Fiji.
It was THE perfect fit to deliver the experience they described to me. They started their Fijian honeymoon by staying at Tokoriki Island Resort.
I chose this resort for several reasons. The most important of them, it’s fairly close to the mainland airport, yet still away from the main island, allowing them a shorter travel time after their overnight flight into Fiji. In addition, it’s one of the most authentic, luxury Fijian resorts, with extraordinary service and cuisine.
The perfect place to relax, be pampered and enjoy romantic nights.
A must do (which they did) is a romantic candlelight dinner on the beach. After relaxing in the Mamanuca Islands, they headed north to the island of Savusavu for a 5-night glorious stay at Namale Resort and Spa.
It’s listed as one of Oprah’s favorite places and owned by Tony Robbins. This resort is like no other and a true treat!
While at Namale, they were surprised and delighted each day. From a private romantic lunch by a waterfall, horseback riding around the property, snorkelling the lagoon just off shore, made to order cuisine served daily, and the amazing accommodations they were upgraded to. The most memorable experience though, a village visit to meet with the chief and those that live there.
Fijians are extremely warm and welcoming. They love to have visitors learn about their traditions which are so very proud of. It’s the little touches that make all the difference and both of these resorts did not disappoint.
You're brilliant! We are astonished by Namale. And our room.. words can't describe!! We are in the Bula House. Thank you so so much for making our honeymoon truly amazing!
Stephanie was amazing from start to finish.. She really helped us identify what we wanted out of our honeymoon. We decided on Fiji and she supplied us with amazing options of islands we wanted to stay on. Her idea to travel to 2 different islands during our stay was the best idea ever.
Tokoriki and Namale were more than we had dreamed of.. picture perfect. Stephanie had everything planned and written out for us on the days we travelled.. we never felt confused and she gave us great travel advice. We will definitely use her for future trips!
