My husband and I would like to recommend the services of Amanda Ricks with Custom Escapes Travel. She was an absolute asset to planning and coordinating our destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. She not only coordinated travel for all of our guests (resort accommodations, along with flights), but also served as our wedding planner, and acted as a liaison between us and the hotel coordinator. She did an absolutely fabulous job in juggling a fairly large destination wedding. We could not have done it without her! She even made a trip to Mexico several months prior to our wedding and stopped by our resort to meet with the hotel coordinator in person; and she then reported suggestions back to us based on what she saw at the resort. She was a very hands-on service provider and directly communicated and set-up travel with all of our guests with the utmost professionalism. She really went above and beyond to make our wedding celebration special, and she was crucial in educating us on how to have a destination wedding. I would not recommend planning a destination wedding without the help of someone like Amanda! If you are planning a destination wedding, please e-mail Amanda at amanda@customescapestravel.com. She is truly a class act and has a great deal of experience in this area. We are so grateful to have had her leading our wedding team!

Amanda was amazing! She helped me plan everything from the resort, flowers, photography, transportation she took care of it all, along with all of the travel arrangements for my husband and myself as well as all of our guests. We couldn't have asked for more, everything was absolutely beautiful and went so smoothly.

I would highly recommend using Custom Escapes if you are planning a destination wedding or even just planning your vacation. The value is unbeatable and she will make everything so easy for you! We will most definitely be having Amanda plan all of our future travels!
Thank you again for all of your help!

I was hesitant to contact a travel agent I'd found online, but everything turned out absolutely perfect thanks to Amanda! She was very easy to work with and knowledgeable about resort amenities. She mailed out useful information a few weeks prior to our trip, which was extremely helpful. My husband and I stayed at the Secrets Capri in Riviera Maya, and we loved everything from the hotel room to the delicious food. Amanda made the process of planning our honeymoon so much easier, and I will definitely be recommending her services. We can't wait to have her help us plan another trip!

Amanda is amazing. Not only did she arrange for travel for all of my family and friends, she helped plan my wedding and it was the perfect day. you always hear that planning your wedding is the most stressful thing you can go through but she made it fun because I didn't have to worry about anything. All of the details were taken care of and I couldn't have been happier with the way it all turned out. I can't wait to go on another vacation and will definitely call her again. I have already passed her information on to a lot of people looking to travel.

Any girl would be sure to say that the most important day of their life is their wedding day. When it comes to your wedding day, the vase amount of elements that go in to the planning is absolutely overwhelming especially when it’s a destination wedding! It was my dream to get married on a beach with my family and friends present.

I knew that we needed someone we could trust to help us get everything in order. Amanda Ricks, with Custom Escapes, was my fairy god mother. She was absolutely the best person we could have had be a part of every little detail in our wedding. Amanda was there each and every step of the way, with coordinating with the resort to find the right vendors for our event, helping us pick the décor, flowers, the location, DJ, and so so so much more. Amanda not only kept us on track with our time frame and budget, but also successfully coordinated the travel for my family and friends to be there as well.

Brides look no further, hiring Amanda is the best decision you will ever make! If you want a beautiful, magical, stress-free fairy tale day, this is the service for you. The wedding you dreamed of when you were a little girl will come true and she makes it so easy. It will come together flawlessly and you will be amazed-I know I was!! I could not imagine not having Amanda be our wedding planner. Amanda is what truly made my wedding day the best day of my entire life. I could not be happier and more thankful for everything that she did for us.

Thank you Amanda!!

Hi Amanda!
Thank you so much for the card and the chips & guac when we arrived.
And for taking care of every detail leading up. You did a fantastic job for us, Lord knows it was not easy. Every one of our guests commented on how wonderful you were to work with.
You even watched our flights into Mexico the day of and notified our transfers when our flight was delayed to make sure they didn't leave us!
We had an absolutly amazing time, Villa Buena Vida was stunning and the staff was top notch. Food was incredible. Wedding was perfect! Eferen went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect, and it was.
Please let me know if you have other clients who are considering staying there or getting married there, I'm happy to answer any questions. I'd highly recommend it!
Pedregal is a classy high end neighborhood with a private beach and a guard shack.
Villa Buena Vida is on top of a cliff overlooking the beach, you can't access the beach from the villa, however you can take quick taxi ride to get down to the beach a few blocks away without leaving the neighborhood.
The chef cooked the best food on the planet, we didn't even have to tell him what to cook, he just whipped up amazing dishes from the groceries he picked up. Any time he would need to get more groceries or alcohol he'd just ask John for some more cash and show us the receipt when he returned.
Can't say enough about the quality of service and the staff at Villa Buena Vida as well as the service you provided through Custom Escapes.
Can't thank you enough.

My husband and I were really impressed with the professionalism of Amanda Ricks; she returned our phone calls and emails promptly. This was very important to us since we were planning a destination wedding. In the initial consultation she helps us narrow down are resort choices to pick the one that best suited are vision for the wedding (she took her time and did not rush us). Throughout the wedding planning she helped make arrangements for various wedding services included in the wedding package we choose. I did not experience any issues with everything she arranged for us at the resort. The wedding coordinator on-site knew everything we wanted for the wedding. The resort, Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun, was an excellent location for the wedding; it was extremely beautiful and exceeded our expectations. We were very happy with the recommendation from Amanda, and truly received our dream wedding. The service and quality was exceptional. We would definitely go back to this resort and use Amanda’s services again.
