Destination Wedding Specialist
Hello there! I'm Karina Duran, your trusted Destination Wedding Expert, and I'm here to make your dream wedding a reality!
My journey into the world of destination weddings was born out of personal experience. I know firsthand the importance of having someone by your side who truly understands the intricacies of planning a wedding in a beautiful but unfamiliar location. With me, you're not just hiring a wedding specialist; you're gaining a confidante who knows what it's like to navigate the ups and downs of destination wedding planning.
But my connection to you goes beyond shared experiences. My husband and I have been best friends since we were 14 years old, and now we're proud parents to a beautiful one-year-old baby. Love, commitment, and family are at the heart of what I do, and I treat every wedding as if it were my own.
With a deep-rooted connection to Cancun, Mexico, where I grew up, I'm not just a destination wedding expert; I'm your local insider. Being bilingual allows me to bridge any language barriers, ensuring smooth communication with the resorts and vendors, and ultimately, getting you the best value for your special day.
Outside of my work, my passion lies in exploring new destinations and meeting people from all walks of life. This love for travel and connection with people fuels my dedication to making your destination wedding an unforgettable adventure.
So, if you're dreaming of a destination wedding, let me be your guide. Together, we'll embark on a journey filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable memories. I'm here to ensure that every step of the way is as beautiful and seamless as the love story you're about to share. Let's turn your dreams into reality, one destination wedding at a time.
"love, commitment, and family are at the heart of what I do."
