Precious Nuptials & Destinations
I cannot say enough about how wonderful Precious Nuptials & Destinations were about planning and delivering our elopement wedding ceremony and reception. Everything was perfect! Precious got everything down to the last detail for us. This whole experience was so amazing and stress free. All we had to do was tell her exactly what we wanted, get dressed in our wedding attire and show up! The location she suggested was beautiful, it was just perfect. She arranged for a minister and a photographer who were both very good and we were just thrilled with everything. Oh, and the cake she provided for our little reception was so beautiful and tasted so good. It really was a mini wedding cake! It was so much more than we expected and we would have never been able to do everything so seamlessly without her!

Thank you so much, Kim! We enjoyed every minute of the process. We truly appreciate the opportunity to have been a part of your day. I just can't wait to see your pictures! You two were awesome to work with.
All the best,
Precious is absolutely amazing!! I will admit I was nervous about using a wedding coordinator at first, it was my husband’s idea, but I would not have traded Precious or her services for anything. My husband and I met with her and told her what we wanted. She made everything we wanted a thousand times better than what we could have ever imagined. Knowing that Precious had everything organized and under control made me less stressed about things getting done the day of our wedding. I was very confident in her and I was able to enjoy the day. Precious is extremely talented and great at what she does. She gave us the wedding we had envisioned and better!! My husband and I said after the wedding that we are going to miss our meetings with Precious; she definitely will have a place in our hearts. Thank you so much Precious!!

Courtney! How sweet?! Douglas is one of the growing men who initiate the process of hiring us. I'm so glad he did, because it was such a pleasure to get to know you two and your beautiful boys! I can still see the relief in your face after our first meeting. How sweet of him to gift you with not having to worry about the details of your day. Thank you so much for trusting me with your day and for sharing such a warm review of our services. We will certainly keep in touch. Let's have coffee soon!
Precious is AMAZING!!! We used her for our wedding in Galveston and could not be more happy. Precious is very detail oriented and made our wedding perfect! We met several times before the wedding and Precious had all the details just right! She is very easy to communicate with. Every time we needed her she was there. I would absolutely recommend Precuois, A+++++ service!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review of our services, Douglas! I truly appreciate you trusting us to be a part of your day. We had a blast and loved every minute of bringing your vision to life.
All the best and a lifetime of love and happiness!!
Precious had about six days to plan a small wedding on the beach and she did an AMAZING job. The only thing she missed was the blue sand for the sand ceremony, but she had the photographer run out and get more, so we did have SOME sand for the ceremony. She even went above and beyond and set up for the small reception I had planned at the rainforest cafe. She brought linens and had them take down the umbrellas on the patio and really set up a great formal feel for us before we even arrived. It was beautiful, and she did wonderful with all of my last minute changes. She always acted happy to accommodate me and never annoyed. The pictures from the photographer came back in a week and were GORGEOUS. He was awesome! I have been a part of a LOT of weddings and this was by far the least stressful wedding I have ever been to, and it was MINE and we did it in a WEEK! I would recommend her for any wedding, big or small. She's fantastic! We got more than we thought we would for the price, for sure!

Thank you so much for your kind review, Susan!
We truly loved being a part of your day. Even with limited planning time, we totally welcome and understand last minute changes and additions. I'm always this excited! I truly love my job and being a part of creating awesome memories for couples and their families. We've now added five various sand colors to our emergency kit. :) We want to always be a step ahead of any additions. It was our goal to make your day extra special for your and your family. I'm so glad we accomplished that! Thank you again for trusting us with your day!! We're so happy for you and wish you all the best!!
Amazing service. Precious took care of absolutely everything. We eloped in Galveston and gave her only 11 days notice! She made the event turn out exactly like we wanted - married on the beach, dinner, cake, pictures, etc. And I can't tell you enough how EASY it was. Totally recommend. THANKS Precious!

Thank you so much for your kind words, Jennifer! It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of your wedding day!
The best hands down!
We didn't want the typical resort honey moon. We wanted to travel and see the sites among the locals. Precious made it so seamless and easy for us to choose our destinations-- to for lack of a better term "country hop". She figured out all of the travel documents, made several arrangements for different flights and hotels and gave the best recommendations for an authentic experience to all the places we visited. Worth her weigh in...
Precious made our wedding happen in less than 24 hours she went above and beyond to make this day perfect for me and my wife. We are very blessed to have her be a part of our big day.. We defiantly would recommend her to anyone who would want there day as special as ours.

Thank you for your kind words and thank you for choosing Precious Nuptials & Destinations to pull off your wedding dream! We wish you and Desi a life of happiness.
I can’t express enough how thankful I am for everything that Precious did to make our marriage a very special and memorable event. I wanted to do something for my bride that was more than just a standard JP wedding and Precious offered an Elopement Package that was quite affordable on my limited budget. Precious arranged an awesome private ceremony for us and our 2 children at the Garten Verein in Galveston which was beautiful and the rose pedal shaped heart that she created on the ground was an unexpected surprise. Our celebratory lunch at the Fisherman’s Warf was more than I could have imagined. It was the attention to detail and the unexpected extras that made for an awesome intimate wedding. Precious had a private room at the restaurant waiting for us that was professionally set up with the Wedding Cake and Champagne Toast. She had roses, candles, and linens decorating the room that simply wowed us and brought a tear to my wife’s eyes. It was again the little unexpected things that made the lunch very special to us such as the framed “congratulations” sign and the personalized Wedding Reception Lunch Menus that each of us had waiting on us and now have as a memento of our special day. The whole day went off without a hitch due to her fine attention to detail and awesome planning. I simply could not have asked or dreamed for anything more and can’t wait to see the pictures from the day. Precious was easy to get in touch with and kept me updated constantly and made the entire planning process and Wedding day completely stress free. Thank you, thank you, thank you Precious!!!!

Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your very special day. Your words are so very kind and greatly appreciated. You were awesome to work with and certainly the first groom that we've had to fully plan their wedding!! You have just set the bar extremely high for other men out there. We wish you, Rebecca and the kids all the best!!
We had a stroke of luck to be able to meet the staff (Dionne and Precious) of Precious nuptials as we found them while we were randomly perusing Bridal stores. Once we decided to use their services for our wedding, we never looked back. We were very fortunate for that decison as our wedding (which was complicated in its scope) was all that we dreamed it would be and more. They handled every detail of the wedding and used their relationships with vendors to our advantage. They even helped plan our honeymoon. One of the things we appreciated most about their service besides their skill and professionalism in planning our special day, was that they really made us feel like a friend and we truly felt "taken care of" during the duration of the planning, during the event itself and even after it was finished they made sure their was no loose ends.

Dionne and I truly enjoyed being a part of your wedding and honeymoon and watching it all unfold! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day and lives. You guys are simply awesome!
Precious and her team were very professional and truly helped to make our wedding day a stress-free success. We would definitely recommend her services for any wedding planning needs!
I first met Precious when my husband and I decided we wanted to go on a cruise and renew our wedding vows for our 25th wedding anniversary. She was amazing I did not have to worry about a thing Precious handled all the arrangements for the cruise, my 65 guests, and my wedding!! She always helped to calm my nerves and reassure me that everything was going to be just fine. We had the most amazing time thanks to all her hard work and dedication to me and my wedding.
While we were on our cruise my son asked his girlfriend to marry him and she said yes!! Needless to say Precious got on it and set up the cruise to the Bahamas for their wedding, Everything was smooth sailing!!
Precious is very sweet, caring and pays attention to details. I don't use anyone else for my travel needs. Thank you Precious Nuptials and Destinations for making our dreams a reality!!
Precious was great for our wedding day. We had to have a change of plans at the last minute and she was very accomodating and a blessing! Highly recommend!

Thank you so much for your kind words!! We truly appreciate you allowing us to be a part of your special day.
Precious, Dionne, and the rest of their team did a FABULOUS job! We hired them for day-of coordination. There were a lot of moving parts since we were on a low budget and we supplied a lot of the decor, etc. They ran things seamlessly, kept smiling faces in the 90 degree heat, and accounted for all the details a bride is just not capable of processing on her big day! They did all the dirty work with such great attitudes! My husband & I couldn't not have been happier & highly recommend Precious Nuptials.
Precious was so sweet and wonderful to work with. She always calmed me down and worked around our hectic work schedules for meetings. I hope my wedding wasnt too stressful! Haha I was def. feeling the stress just because it's how I am. Overall my family loved her and she was wonderful.
Precious was absolutely incrdible. We could not have made it through all of our wedding planning without her services. She somehow managed to keep everyone involved calm and extraordinarily organized, eventhough we were often states apart! Precious was always extremely professional and kind toward each person she interacted with, from vendors during the planning stages to our guests on our wedding day. And, she was always able to keep her cool, even when we definitely could not! Precious also has the most calming voice ever...absolutely necessary in moments of crisis!
Note I sent to Precious after my daughter's wedding:
Your calm presence is a blessing. Your aura / vibe are indispensable for a bride and her mom. You tactfully coached/coaxed a young couple on certain matters when needed. Your promptness and professional organization is also most appreciated. We are kindred spirits in the organizational department. The fact that you got ALL of our special stuff back to the house the morning after was an amazing feat all in of itself. Thank you for tracking down the cake topper and retrieving Laura’s signs from the trash. One man’s trash is another’s treasure! Thanks for saving our treasures. Any bride or mom that doesn’t use professional services like yours is nuts – and especially your services.

Precious is great! She went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was exactly how we invisioned it! She is so through right down to the little details! My parents were so impressed how smoothly the wedding ran! Definately worth it!!!Thanks Precious...you are truely gifted at what you do! We couldn't have done it without you!
Precious made my day relaxing so that I could enjoy our celebration. She and my daughter worked extremely well together knowing that my daughter is detailed, expects close communication, and responds to professionalism. As I was checking in with all the vendors on the wedding day I found all of the vendors were where they needed to be and all of the minor glitches (which are expected) were handled quickly, quietly, and with a smile. (I don't think she ever quit smiling!) Precious provided a valuable service at great value. Neither my daughter nor I will forget Precious and all of her services. This was easy to write.
I'm really glad Precious was the main contact for my wedding. Caylin never provided the storyboard that she promised, so I didn't get the feeling that she was entirely reliable.
The only thing that I didn't fully like was how long I had to wait to start my walk down the aisle. My groom later told me he got a little worried that I had changed my mind! :) I now know that Precious had to cue the string quartet and then come downstairs to fix my train. I greatly appreciate that she took the time to fix my train, but I don't know why someone couldn't have helped with this. Perhaps Caylin could have fixed my train while Precious was cueing the music.
Everything else went so smoothly on the wedding day. Precious's timeline was fantastic, and I really noticed and appreciated her organization. Everything was set up correctly, including the framed pictures, guestbook, champagne flutes, and I got my shoes for the garter toss.
Overall, I would definitely recommend Precisous Nuptials to another bride.
Precious did a wonderful job. She saw my vision fully and made my wedding day absolutely beautiful! She also made my wedding day stress-free. She took care of everything I needed her too and went beyond my expectations.
Precious Nuptials was exactly what I needed for my "Day of" wedding planning. Precious took care of everything. I had a great day and was not bothered with any details. Everything turned out tremendous!

Our company brings a unique experience level to the world of wedding planning and production. From the destination wedding planning sector of business, we offer a unique position in the fact that our company’s foundation was built around the marriage of two companies. We began as a luxury boutique travel agency, specializing in leisure travel for group and family adventures to Mexico and the Caribbean. In 2002, we planned our first Mexico destination wedding. As the years progressed, we experienced a great influx in the interest of destination weddings. We simply fell in love with the wedding planning process! There was such magic and joy in the overall planning and production process that we decided to position ourselves to service local Houston couples’ planning their wedding in the Galveston and Houston Metro areas. We operated as two companies, Enjoy Travel and Precious Nuptials, while honing our craft and perfecting our niche. In 2006, Precious Nuptials became Precious Nuptials & Destinations — a Houston local and destination wedding planning and production company.
