TELL US ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH LUXE DESTINATION WEDDINGS: Great wedding coordinators/planners! The ladies paid attention to details that we didn’t even think of and were very patient and kind; while remaining friendly and professional at the same time. Love both ladies, Rebecca and Laura! They were both easy to talk to whether via emails or phone calls. They made you feel like they are part of your wedding party and that is important when trying to coordinate and make decisions on your wedding that is taking place overseas. All information was correctly set up at our destination and that made it stress-free on that level. The overall experience with LUXE was a good one and we would definitely recommend it to everyone!
