We hired Ann to coordinate and organize our wedding arrangements at Secrets St. James in Montego Bay Jamaica. Now that our wedding has past we can honestly say that hiring Ann was by far the best decision we ever could have made.

Ann helped us with everything from selecting a resort, booking all of our guests travel arrangements, communicating with the resort and meticulously organizing our guests accommodations at Secrets. Had it not been for Ann's expertise and experience there is no way we would of been able to pull off such an amazing wedding & vacation.

We had 80 people make the trip to Jamaica and Ann organized and booked everyone's stay at the resort. She communicated with us weekly about guests travel arrangements and provided an up to the minute spreadsheet so we could see who had booked their trip. She also coordinated all transportation for our guests from the airport to the resort.

As you can imagine there are a number of moving pieces with planning a destination wedding. Guests travel arrangements are probably the most difficult and the last thing a bride and groom want to worry about. Ann handled all of this and we never had to worry about a single detail.

The feedback from our friends and family about Ann was also fantastic. Out of our 80 guests that made the trip there was not a single error or mistake and the entire week went off without a hitch. We can't stress enough the impact that Ann had on helping us plan our dream wedding. In addition to everything she provided from a coordination standpoint she also helped us communicate with the resort and had a direct channel for communication to the resorts wedding planners.

Our wedding was now 3 weeks ago and we can't thank Ann enough for all that she did for us. Our wedding was perfect and the entire trip was a dream come true thanks to Ann's help. If you're planning a destination wedding look no further, Ann is all you need to help plan the wedding of your dreams.

My husband & I just got back from the perfect honeymoon that Ann planned for us in Hawaii! Annie's Escapes was our first experience using a travel agent to book a trip, and we could not be happier. Going into the wedding planning process, we decided that my husband would take the lead on the band, the bar, and booking our honeymoon. And I am so glad that he found Ann. When he first contacted Ann we had no idea what to expect and had a list of places that we wanted to consider and no idea how we were going to decide. Ann answered all of our questions, and then began to ask us a lot of questions and came up with 3 different proposals. We were so impressed with her knowledge of different places around the world, and her ability to help us understand what to expect on each of the different trips. We ended up deciding on Hawaii and LOVED every minute of the trip.
Ann was also extremely flexible and patient in the planning process. We were able to use our preferred booking method for the airlines, and she helped us price out different options of our trip to Hawaii to make sure it fit within our budget. A few weeks before the trip, Ann also sent my husband all of the details we needed to know, including directions and also advice/articles on different tours and things to see once we arrived. We had an absolute blast and were so happy that everything worked out perfectly on our trip, from the decision on which islands to visit to the rental car and accommodations. We stayed at the Grand Hyatt in Kauai and the Andaz in Maui. I can't thank Ann enough for helping my husband plan the PERFECT trip for us and also for the surprise bottle of champagne!

We could not have been happier with Annie. We have had experience working with her in the past when we planned a once in a lifetime family vacation. Therefore, it was an easy decision to have Annie help us plan our honeymoon. Everything went off without a hitch. Annie has an uncanny ability to LISTEN to what you are looking for and tailor a trip to those desires. We did not have a simple honeymoon by any means, traveling to 2 locations in Spain. However, Annie was able to create a smooth transition while ensuring our satisfaction in both places. We knew where we wanted to go in terms of location, but was not sure on things we wanted to do. One of our favorite things about Annie was her ability to fill our time with an itinerary of activities and leisure that suited us perfectly. We will not use another travel agent. Period.

Ann at Annie's Escapes is amazing. I'm not sure how, what, where, when I would have gotten married without her help. Destination weddings are overwhelming at first because its so hard to find the place. Especially if you don't have time to travel and scope places out beforehand. Its a life saver to have someone like Ann who you can trust. She was there the whole way making sure everything went smoothly. Best decision I made to work with her.

My Husband and I LOVED our honeymoon and had such a relaxing, fun trip...we had the time of our lives. Ann was great to work with. She was flexible in planning a time to meet with us to chat about our ideas for our honeymoon. She answered ALL of the questions we had for her. She also asked a few of her own questions to get to know us better and to learn our likes and dislikes. A day or two later Ann e-mailed us with some price quotes regarding resorts she thought we may like in the different destinations we were interested in. This was a huge help for us. We looked into the resorts and locations and decided on which we would like to visit. Ann watched the flights and when she thought the airline we offering good pricing she confirmed our trip. Ann was great during the communication process and was very accommodating with any changes etc. She responded to e-mails quickly and gave us all the information we needed to make our honeymoon travel as easy as possible. I highly recommend Ann and can't thank her enough for creating a dream honeymoon for my husband and I. We can't wait to book another trip with Ann again.

Ann perfectly planned our honeymoon to Italy. My wife and I knew we wanted to go to Italy for our honeymoon but we were concerned that with number of sites that we wanted to see, we would need a vacation from our honeymoon when we returned. Ann took the time to meet with us and discuss where we wanted to go. She put together a plan that would allow us to see everything we wanted to see, but not be exhausted when we were done. She asked how much we wanted to have planned and how much we wanted to be on our own to explore. Every hotel she booked was perfect, the guided tours she booked for us allowed to skip some very long lines in Rome and Florence, and the ideas on what to do with our unplanned time worked out great too. It was also nice to work with someone who had personally traveled to these cities and could give us hands on advice. Her experience really showed through. We are looking forward to working with her again for our one year wedding anniversary trip to Japan!

Annie was a pleasure to work with! She met with us to get an idea of what we were looking to do on our honeymoon and had a detailed list of options to choose from very quickly. We liked them, but wanted to see more and she was happy to oblige. On the second list, we fell in love with Barbados and the trip that she planned for us. She walked us through the entire process, and even checked our flights for us when we were delayed coming home. She was worried that we would miss our connection, so she reserved us seats on the next flight out and sent us a list of hotels to stay in overnight. All of this before we had even landed. She completely took all stress out of traveling and we can't wait to book our next vacation with her!

I can't say enough about Annie and Annie's Escapes. My husband and I rarely get to travel or vacation together because of our jobs and we never get to leave the country, so we knew we wanted our honeymoon to be something special that we might never get to do again.

When we first met Annie, we didn't have any real sense of budget to give her, but we knew we wanted a more action/adventure type of honeymoon than, say, Europe or some tropical island, and we knew we had to leave right after the wedding. So Annie very quickly came back to us with two different options. And while we loved one of them -- Costa Rica -- we didn't love the price tag.

So Annie went back to the drawing board. Just as we thought we were going to have to opt out of Costa Rica, though, she called to tell us she had found an incredible airfare deal that would allow us to take our 10-day getaway to everywhere we wanted to go! But we had to act fast -- the deal wouldn't last long. That was no problem for us, but Annie was leaving for a weekend of college tours with her daughter. So what did she do? She took all our paperwork with her, calling and texting us between flights, meetings and tours, and somehow getting everything booked for us at her own extreme inconvenience.

The trip ended up being amazing, and Annie was there for us before, during and after, even emailing us and our tour company in Costa Rica when she saw our flight out of Miami had been delayed. Annie made it so that the only stress my husband and I dealt with was packing! We went to three different cities in our travels and had people on both sides waiting to escort us every step of the way.

We NEVER could have planned a honeymoon like that on our own. It was the most incredible way to cap off one of the most amazing chapters in our lives. In fact, we loved Annie and Costa Rica so much, we sent our brother- and sister-in-law to Annie to plan their own honeymoon just a few weeks later!

I can't say enough about Annie and Annie's Escapes. My husband and I rarely get to travel or vacation together because of our jobs and we never get to leave the country, so we knew we wanted our honeymoon to be something special that we might never get to do again.

When we first met Annie, we didn't have any real sense of budget to give her, but we knew we wanted a more action/adventure type of honeymoon than, say, Europe or some tropical island, and we knew we had to leave right after the wedding. So Annie very quickly came back to us with two different options. And while we loved one of them -- Costa Rica -- we didn't love the price tag.

So Annie went back to the drawing board. Just as we thought we were going to have to opt out of Costa Rica, though, she called to tell us she had found an incredible airfare deal that would allow us to take our 10-day getaway to everywhere we wanted to go! But we had to act fast -- the deal wouldn't last long. That was no problem for us, but Annie was leaving for a weekend of college tours with her daughter. So what did she do? She took all our paperwork with her, calling and texting us between flights, meetings and tours, and somehow getting everything booked for us at her own extreme inconvenience.

The trip ended up being amazing, and Annie was there for us before, during and after, even emailing us and our tour company in Costa Rica when she saw our flight out of Miami had been delayed. Annie made it so that the only stress my husband and I dealt with was packing! We went to three different cities in our travels and had people on both sides waiting to escort us every step of the way.

We NEVER could have planned a honeymoon like that on our own. It was the most incredible way to cap off one of the most amazing chapters in our lives. In fact, we loved Annie and Costa Rica so much, we sent our brother- and sister-in-law to Annie to plan their own honeymoon just a few weeks later!
