Our Founders have been working in the Destination Wedding industry for over ten years.
They have experience working with couples locally as well as being on hand for the actual weddings. They saw a need to help couples to see the resorts for themselves as it had proved so helpful to other clients. Our team has traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, the US and Europe.
Love At First Site has been created to help you find the perfect location for your dream Destination Wedding. You would never choose a venue for your ceremony and reception at home without thoroughly researching all your options and we don’t think you should have to do that if you’re hosting a wedding away either.
At Love At First Site, our number one goal is to ensure that our couples get to see their favorite resorts first hand and make informed decisions for the most important event of their lives. We will organize your stay in destination and arrange for you to visit these resorts yourselves. With you will be our dedicated Destination Wedding Specialists who will be your hosts for this event. They will introduce you to the wedding teams at the resorts and guide you through the Destination Wedding Process. They will use their years of experience to answer all of your questions, so that when the time comes to choose your favorite, you will have all the information available to make the best choice.
Although there are many websites dedicated to Destination Weddings and the resorts have their own marketing tools to sell their properties to you, nothing will compare to walking into a resort, being welcomed by the staff and feeling the vibe for yourself.
Thank you for all the support and awesome advice throughout the year long process, especially with the planning. We couldn't have done it without you. Thank you so much Chanell!
I met Chanell at the 2015 Bridal Show in Toronto. Out of all the people I met that day she was the only one I would describe as "real". She wasn't just trying to say what ever I wanted to hear to get me to use her services and book through her, she was upfront and honest with me. Over the course of the year and a half of planning my wedding she was the most kind and caring person and so incredibly easy to work with. From helping us pick a resort, to making herself available when ever I needed her to answer any questions I had even if it was a silly little question. The thing I loved most though was while I was planning my amazing destination wedding to Punta Cana, Chanell was also planning her destination wedding to Jamaica so she knew what I was going through cause she herself was going through the exact same process. I don't think I could have picked a better women to assist me in picking a resort, to doing all the reservations for everyone, to helping me with every last detail in making my special day the fairy tale I had always dreamed about. I have and will continue to recommend my friends to use Love at First Site Weddings for all destination weddings services. Although I won't be getting married again, I will continue to use her to help plan all my future travel plans.
Hi Liana, How are you and the family doing? The Wedding went AMAZING! From the weather to the resort and staff. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect week! Thanks for everything!
After we decided to have a destination wedding, the big question was “where”? I had talked to several local travel agents, all of which had suggestions. None of those places seemed to specialize in destination weddings. That’s when I found Love At First Site while researching blogs online. I got in contact with Chanell. Chanell helped me choose my wedding resort and has been fantastic. She knew the ins and outs of all the resorts, and was able to match me with the perfect resort for what I was looking for! She knew the pros and cons and why or why not to have a wedding at a particular place. It gave me an added sense of security knowing that she herself had dealt with most of the representatives from the resorts and has even visited some of the resorts herself. Love At First Site is always just an email away. Any questions I’ve had, they’ve always quickly replied, and been able to explain anything I don’t understand. They have done a spectacular job of keeping my fiancé and organized, and up to date with all information needed for our wedding. They go above and beyond for a travel agent. I would definitely recommend working with Love At First Site for your destination wedding.
I've been going to Liana for all my travel needs ever since she came highly recommended by a close friend. She single-handedly helped my husband and I figure out where we wanted to go for our destination wedding, along with managing the whole booking process from flights to accommodations for about 50 of our guest. To this day I continue to trust Liana for all my personal and business travel needs knowing that she has my best interests in mind.
We are in the process of organizing our January 2014 wedding with Chanell. Many if our friends and family have phoned and spoken to the great team at Love at first site and have been pleased with the personable service. So far we have had many questions about travel and accommodations and Chanell has answered all of them promptly and patiently. Love at first site weddings would be a place we recommend for destination wedding planning for sure!
We have now booked 2 trips, including our honeymoon, with Liana and will continue to do so in the future. She understands our traveling needs no matter how complex the trip, and is alwayscoming up with new and exciting places to stay and things to do based on solid knowledge of the area and local recommendations. She will go the extra step to make sure the trip is a success and responds to questions and concerns in a timely manner. I highly recommend using Liana for your next vacation!
After meeting with Chanell in Dominican Republic, we are positive we found our perfect resort. There’s nothing worse than getting to a resort and it not living up to your expectations (especially for your wedding!!). We no longer worry about that. She was incredibly nice and really knew what to look for while we were touring the resorts. She told us afterwards that she had actually guessed the resort we would pick before we picked it! These women know what they’re doing when it comes to all things wedding. And not only was she nice and professional, she was so much fun to be around! We are so happy we chose to go down to the resorts with Love At First Site before making a decision.
A site inspection is not only important to find out what you don’t like about a property but to also fall in love with one! My fiancé and I recently travelled to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic to explore four different properties with the amazing Liana, Love at First Site. Love at first site took care of everything, every step of the way. Liana answered all of my questions and took care of every detail to ensure an amazing trip. I can’t stress enough how grateful I am that I’ve done a site inspection. Pictures don’t always tell the full story. I feel so confident now inviting my guests to my dream wedding destination that I know the food and drinks are delicious and property will exceed their expectations as it did mine. I highly recommend booking a site inspection or any kind of travel through Love at First Site, you won’t be disappointed. Liana is an expert in her field, and she will find the perfect destination to suit you.
When I was asked to help plan a destination wedding my first thought was how you choose a resort to host such an important event. I had heard about Destination Wedding Site Inspection trips from a friend and thought this is exactly what we needed as neither the bride and groom or myself had been to any of the resorts they were considering. This is when I decided to contact Love at First Site. Within a week of my initial conversation with Liana Rowan, Destination Wedding Specialist we had a five resort site inspection trip planned to Punta Cana for the bride and groom. Liana took care of all the details, including reservations at the host resort, a driver for the day and they even had one of their own Destination Wedding Specialists, Chanell Bunbury accompany them on the site inspections to ensure all their questions were answered and that they got the information they needed to make their decision. Once they decided which resort they would like have host their wedding, Chanell went to work and got the best price possible for guests travelling to the wedding. The price they got was great, I have spoken with several guests that have booked and they are all pleased with the package price, and the service they have received from both Chanell and Liana. I know personally, whenever I have had a question or concern there was always a prompt response to my calls or emails. I am very pleased with the service and attention to detail I have received from both Chanell and Liana. It is great to have a professional company to work with on such an important event. I would definitely recommend Love at First Site to anyone considering a destination wedding; it has sure made my job much easier.
My experience with Love at First Site was fantastic. My fiancé and I decided that we would have a destination wedding because we wanted an intimate setting and a great vacation wrapped up into one. When I started to research various hotels, I became so overwhelmed so I took a leap of faith and contacted Love at First Site. These ladies know what they are doing! I told them we wanted to have our wedding in Punta Cana and they suggested some hotels for us to checkout. My fiancé wasn’t able to come for the site visits, so I took the opportunity to make this into a girls’ get away with my bridesmaids. We stayed at the Majestic Colonial, which was nice but when we went for our site visit at Now Larimar I just fell in love. I knew this resort would be the perfect place to get married. The resort was beautiful and modern, with great amenities for our guests and various options for both our ceremony and reception. We now look forward to our wedding in 2014!!!
LOVED the resort!!! L O V E D it! We were so thankful for you and talked about it many times!! Thank you so much for finding us this place!! The reviews are accurate. The food is out of this world, the accommodations were amazing, the check-in process was brilliant and relaxed (they take you to a patio or a bar (inside or out, you choose) and bring you drinks and cool cloths and bring a person to you with a clip board to check you in). There's no standing in a line at a front desk! Getting to the sister resort is a breeze and the private beach club there for Residence guests only is AMAZING!! Beds with canopies and lounge chairs with waiter service bringing you drinks and food. We were upgraded to a two-bedroom suite so our little one had her own room which was perfect. There was a 20 charge on anything ordered through room service. It's a wonderful place we would return to. Liana, you were a HUGE help. It took so much pressure off of us to know that you were working on our plans for us. We had never used engaged a travel agent before but now we know it's the way to do it! Thanks for all the time you spent making sure that all our needs would be met!
Hi Liana, I wanted to say thank you!! Thank you yet again for preparing my trip as if it were your own experience. I appreciate your amazing following up and thinking of all the details I couldn't have thought of. Its great working with someone who passionate about her business and cares so much that you even followed up when I was at the airport to be sure all was going smoothly! As you know I wholehearted recommend you to everyone I know! You're the best
Our family has been using Liana to book all of our vacations for several years now. She is truly dedicated to her job and clients. From planning to booking she has taken care of every detail for us and has always gone above and beyond to make sure our vacation is everything that we wanted it to be. We have enjoyed stress-free trips to Disney, Atlantis, Las Vegas, and Mexico all with her invaluable expertise & attention to detail. We love booking vacations with Liana because we know that it will be a stress-free process, no deal will be left unturned nor detail left hanging. She is wonderful to deal with and that is why we constantly refer our friends and family.
Liana is the best travel agent to use! You can tell she is passionate about you, your travel plans and your special day. DO NOT hesitate to work with her or her company, you are in safe hands! She is in constant contact and is making sure ever detail is looked into. She is the most kind and caring person! She made sure we were 100% taken care of our entire pre wedding site inspection and even helped us out of a travel bind, no questions asked! We will definitely be using her again for travel and CANNOT thank her enough!
The trip was incredible!!! The wedding was so PERFECT! Ceremony on the beach, reception in an open-air restaurant until 11:30pm, and then we all moved to the beach where we danced till 3am. So so SO much fun! The resort was beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the food was amazing! I would definitely go back there! This all couldn't have happened without YOU!!! So I thank you from the bottom of my heart! You made this experience a great one...you were so helpful and you always made me feel better and comfortable with the decisions we made. It made me feel like you should've been a guest at our wedding! :)
Dear Liana and Chanell, Thank you so much for all your help planning our perfect wedding! All 60 of us who came down loved Jamaica and the resort. Thanks for helping it all go so smoothly! Destination Weddings are definitely the way to go!
Hi Liana, We ABSOULTELY loved the resort and so did our whole family. We was an incredible wedding day and a fantastic trip! The resort is very pretty, the rooms are extremely modern and the coffee bar is AMAZING (I think I am withdrawing from all the coffee I ingested while away! lol). The service was outstanding; they knew our entire wedding party was there for a wedding and were very responsive and polite. They upgraded Sal and I to a room in the privilege area which was a beautiful suite! Thank you so much for suggesting this resort. We would definitely go back!!!
