Denver, CO family attends destination wedding in Mexico

We just landed in Denver and I just wanted to say a huge thank you! We had the best trip but the best part is how smooth our travel experience was. As you know it was all of our first time traveling out of the country and there were some nerves for the long day of travel (especially with the baby!) but it was a great experience due to your planning. Being able to attend my cousins destination wedding and reconnecting with family was truly a priceless experience and your expertise was the cherry on top of the trip! Thank you so much and I’ll absolutely be reaching out in the future to assist us with future travel plans!

Couple with Bridal Party at Grand Fiesta Americana Los Cabos

Idaho Couple and Bridal Party at their Destination Wedding at Grand Fiesta Americana Los Cabos

Our initial thought when planning a wedding was – OVERWHELMED, we had no idea where to start or even what we wanted to plan. The idea of a destination wedding came up and my parents, husband and I couldn’t think of a better way to get married. We wanted to plan some intimate, fun and that was us! My parents have used Sheila several times over the years, we instantly thought to use her for our destination wedding. Sheila is the GAL to work with – as any bride is, I was extremely nervous and had NO IDEA where to begin. Sheila took the time to take into account our “Resort Needs” and narrowed down resorts for us to pick through, she then got info from each of the resorts wedding departments and allowed us to choose. This was exactly what my mom, husband and I needed to select a resort. We landed at Grand Fiesta Americana Los Cabos – which we loved, once we were there. I will say that communication – on the resort side – was lacking at times prior to arrival and Sheila worked through all of our communication lapses and kept amazing records. Sheila not only worked to arrange our group booking, but worked with the wedding department to plan our Fiesta in Cabo San Lucas. We will absolutely use Sheila and her company again no matter our travel needs.

A couple things any destination couple should think about when planning:

Patience – You will be working with people from other countries, time zones – who work at resorts.Their job is to sell you the biggest packages and make money. Sheila will help you keep what you want into account, keep record of that and knock heads when needed to see your dreams through.
If you have a vision of how you things to look – remember that, don’t get lost in the idea that the resort and where you are at is the decor, if you want some color or traditional touches. You can absolutely do that! You may have to bring stuff with you, but don’t let go of all of the traditions just because you are going destination!

Have FUN – I had lots of stress around bringing a group and making sure everyone loved it. Sheila put my mind at ease more than once, assuring my the resort had lots of amazing reviews and handled the group booking like a champ! She provided us with lists of who booked with arrival dates, which HELPED SOO much once we were down there.

Redding Couple Has a Special Destination Wedding in Mexico

When my husband and I decided we wanted to get married in Mexico I began looking at hotels and immediately felt completely overwhelmed. I had no idea how to start and had so many questions about the process of a destination wedding. My aunt knew Sheila and told me maybe she could help with planning a wedding from afar. I was instantly so impressed with her professionalism and kindness. Sheila asked for our budget, desired location, estimated number of guests and what we had in mind for a wedding. She promptly sent me a chart with three different resort names, available wedding dates, cost and specifics. This allowed me and my husband to sit and easily choose a resort. Sheila handled communication with the resort wedding coordinator, was on conference calls with the on-site coordinator and myself and most importantly booked travel and activities for all of our guests. She had communication with our friends and family and helped coordinate all of their specific travel needs. Sheila listened to what was important to us and made sure it all came together. Our wedding was so special and I appreciate Sheila helping make that happen. I can not imagine planning our wedding without Sheila and I highly recommend her as a destination wedding coordinator and travel agent!

College Station Bride & Groom Has Magical Destination Wedding In Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Sheila Cannon from Carefree Romantic Vacations provided exceptional service to coordinate our San Jose del Cabo destination wedding an honeymoon! If you are planning a destination wedding or honeymoon, I strongly recommend you use a travel agent, and that Sheila Cannon with Carefree Romantic Vacations is that travel agent. Your guests will have a knowledgable point of contact, you have someone who knows the right questions to ask and will make your wedding as stress free and enjoyable as possible. My wedding was truly magical and I am so thankful to Sheila for helping make it a reality! I am a full time PhD student and my husband works full time, we live across the country from where we grew up and our families are also spread out throughout the US. So, we decided if we were going to fly it would be somewhere new and fun! Sheila helped us pick a venue, she compiled information on all the wedding packages of the all-inclusive resorts that met our criteria and made it an affordable, stress-free experience for me to plan my dream wedding. Our original venue had to close due to the hurricane and in days of finding that out, Sheila had several other venue choices for us ready to go and we ended up loving our new venue, couldn’t have imagined it anywhere else. She contacted and helped each person who had already reserved rooms at the old venue and helped easily change their reservations to the new one. She handled nearly all the travel for our ~40 guests (air, hotel and transfer bt the two) and made sure everyone got the most affordable and convenient flights. The wedding day, weekend and honeymoon were fantastic. I highly recommend her services and we plan to use Sheila again for future travel!
