First off, I have been waiting to write this review for a long time; Itzel and her team were ABSOLUTELY GREAT! I work in customer service and I can tell when someone is going above and beyond for me. That's exactly what Itzel and Chris's teams did at Modern Destination Weddings for myself and my guests. As many people know, planning a wedding takes a lot of time and effort. This is part of the reason we wanted a destination wedding, plus I love to travel. Today most people think women plan the wedding, which for me is true, I planned most of the wedding with Itzel, but she also wanted to make sure my husband would be happy too. That just showed me how much she cared and wanted to make sure both of us were happy. Itzel made everything so easy from the first time I contacted her. From the first phone call to answering every single questions via email and calls, Itzel always had an answer for me, and if for some reason she didn't she would always get it for me. Itzel and her team always responded within reasonable business hours. If they were not in the office, their out of office email was always on and was updated and had accurate information. In terms of booking the hotel and scheduling flights, Chris and his team were on top of it. When we were ready to book flights, Itzel scheduled a time for us to conference Chris via phone call and go over how booking the hotel and flights worked. Chris had every possible answer for ALL the questions I could have asked. After speaking for the first time he sent me an email recapping everything we discussed. He made it clear if any of my guests had questions they could contact him and his team. He wanted to make sure I was stress free. Clearly this is a professional team. I had guests traveling from all over the world and he was still able to work with the different time zones and accommodate for everyone. They gave me complete confidence planning a wedding thousands of miles away. Itzel went out of her way to hand write me a post card and send a beautiful gift for our wedding. Companies today do not show that kind of compassion to their customers, for me this went a long. Any bride looking to book a destination wedding or honeymoon, go with MODERN DESTINATION WEDDINGS. I tell everyone I know how great a service they provide. I hope this review helps another couple choose Modern Destination Weddings. Thank you, Carla
Our experience with Modern Destination Weddings was top notch. Heather was our team leader and main point of contact, and Mike worked with our wedding guests. They were both fabulous - light hearted, patient, diligent, and respectful. When we first reached out to Heather we were undecided on wedding location. We knew we wanted Mexico, but that was about it. Heather listened to our must-haves and have-nots and came back with several choices. Never once did we feel pressured and it was clear Heather was looking out in our best interest. We ultimately settled on Live Aqua in Cancun and boy are we glad we did. Our wedding was more than we (or any of our 22 wedding guests) could have ever expected! Our flight was perfectly uneventful, as was our transport to the hotel. We were greeted at the resort like celebrities and treated like royalty the entire stay. Even my bougie parents said they had never received better service (now that's high praise from those two!). But really, Modern Destination Weddings was the best wedding planning decision. Weddings are stressful and Heather and Mike took so much weight off our shoulders. When it came to coordinating travel for family (from all over the country, by the way), our job ended at the "Call Mike @ (xxx) xxx-xxx" on the save the dates. Mike and Heather handled everything. And when our guests found better deals, Modern Destination Weddings matched it. Now that's service!
We worked closely with Itzel in the beginning and Mike to have all our guests booked. Itzel did a great job searching for the perfect resort, and was extremely nice even when I didn't like the first two batches she sent me. She continued to search and found the best fit for my husband, myself and our entire family. Mike was always helpful and responded very quickly to the million of e-mails I sent him. We had a ton of requests and questions and he did his best to answer them all in a timely manner. They were so friendly and helpful and made the travel planning very easy!
Our experience with Modern Destination Weddings was amazing! My belief is that planning a wedding should be a positive, non-stressful time and Modern Destination truly understands that idea. The fact that they give us - the bride and groom- our own wedding coordinator and give our guests another team of coordinators shows that they wanted to be available to us as much as possible. Our wedding coordinator, Heather Kogler, couldn't have been any better if she tried. Her recommendations were always great and she even had a destination wedding which helped us with a lot of the questions that we had. She will now always hold a special place in our lives because of how amazing our unbelievable our wedding was. She was truly amazing from her suggestions all the way down to dealing with a bride and groom on a daily basis . We have literally been referring Modern Destination Weddings to everyone we've come in contact with. The customer service is superb.
Modern Destination Weddings is a great company! When I decided to have a destination wedding, I didn't know where to even start! Heather Kogler helped me narrow down my perfect Wedding location in Aruba and also booked my Honeymoon in St.Lucia for me! She was so professional and was ALWAYS there to answer any of my questions within a day! My 73 guests were also very pleased with the service and they said it was easy to book their vacation. Thank you so much for EVERYTHING Heather! Both of our trips ran so smoothly and it was a huge relief to not have to worry about booking our vacations! I highly recommend using Modern Destination Weddings, they are so professional, helpful and kind!
We had such an incredible experience with Modern Destination Weddings! We worked with Rhonda, who was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process. She was always prompt, gave us all the information we needed, and followed up with us to ensure we didn't let any deadlines slip. She negotiated great rates for us as well. When we had to cancel our original room block and switch our rooms over to individual reservations, she didn't miss a beat and maintained a great attitude while ensuring everything was taken care of. And she handled a good portion of our guests' accommodations, including my parents' and my brothers' travel arrangements - saving me a ton of work and stress in the process. She played a huge role in ensuring our wedding planning process was a breeze.
I have been to 2 destination weddings coordinated by MDW and they were the best I have ever been to! I I was a bridesmaid in one and a guest at the other so I got to see both sides of the planning and vacationing. Everything was organized, timely and fun! Chris booked us for both weddings and did a fantastic job! My friends had their dream weddings and we had awesome vacations because of this company!
We were referred to Modern Destination Weddings by a close friend and could not be happier with our experience. They made the process so easy and stress free. From the first inquiry the team was attentive, personable and caring. Heather Kogler was our point of contact every step of the way. I could not have done it without her and the team. I highly recommend Modern Destination Weddings to anyone looking to do a destination wedding as well as plan vacations ( they do that too)!
Heather is absolutely amazing! I submitted a request for destination wedding details and within the hour, Heather contacted me! She is so knowledgeable and very passionate. Heather made the process of choosing a destination wedding location simple and fun! I would highly recommend contacting Heather for you destination wedding needs!
Heather and Chris, our modern destination representatives were amazing. They did everything they could to help us and our guests. We had an unexpected date change of the wedding and they worked tirelessly to accommodate and change everyone's itinearies. It gave us peace of mind to know that they were there to answer all of our guests questions. We were able to focus on the planning of or big day!
I would like to thank CHRIS for an amazing job he did for my Son Isidro and his beautiful wife Olga. We had all flights and hotel set when an unfortunate job situation of the groom (my son) came up and we had to switch the date a couple of days before the original date, CHRIS assured us he would have it all redone and taken care of. Of which he of course did it with such professionalism and kindness. I would recommend CHRIS to anyone looking to have a destination wedding. He's the best of the best! Thank you for all your help!
My experience with Modern Destination Weddings was excellent! Itzel helped through the entire process, from choosing the venue that provided everything we were looking for, suggestions of wedding weekend activities, communicating with our venue as we made our decisions for the event and travel arrangements. Highly recommended!
I truly had the best wedding it was magical and without the help of Itzel Rodriguez. She was my assigned wedding coordinator and I couldn't ask nor want anyone else it would not have been the same. Itzel and the rest of the staff were always a help when I needed anything. It can be a challenge at times planning a destination wedding, But take my word when I say they will do all in their power to make your dream wedding a reality . I have no regrets having a destination wedding and no regrets using Modern Destination Weddings. One of the best decision I could have made. Thank you all at Modern Destination Weddings!!
This company helped my plan my perfect destination wedding. Heather quickly helped me fine the perfect venue. Mike helped all of my guest with their travel. My guest were very happy with everything too. I'd recommend this company to anyone that is looking for help planning their destination wedding.
My fiancé and I searched for a while until we found Modern Destination Weddings via the website. We took a chance and called and we were very fortunate enough to get Heather Kolger assigned to us as our awesome coordinator, with her beautiful personality, we were blessed to work with her and Modern Destination as a great agency. Heather helped us through every step of our wedding process. We also enjoyed creating our website at Weddingbase.com that Heather setup for us which was exciting to do for our guests. We started talking to Heather over a year from our wedding date and she was fortunate enough to place the right people in our life with the help of Jessica, Dustin and Sam in finalizing my guest’s travels to the Majestic Elegance and Colonial Resort in Punta Cana. We were very pleased with their professionalism and how they assisted our wedding guest. We were very pleased with Heather’s help with narrowing down the choices she recommended to us with our situation of bringing children on the vacation, we selected the Majestic Elegance and Colonial Resort in Punta Cana, with her knowledge and experience we had our DREAM wedding and amazing Honeymoon. Our booking and travels to and from the resort went smoothly and she introduced us to an awesome wedding coordinator Flor Mendez of Majestic Elegance Resort, Punta Cana. The Photographer Andrew from Tropical Studio was amazing they stayed with us throughout the entire reception. They worked diligently with us as if they were our family. My husband and I look forward to Modern Destination planning our first Anniversary Vacation. Thank you for our first time and awesome experience.
Working with Modern Destination Weddings was amazing. Itzel was our wedding coordinator, she was patient, kind, and relieved any stress. Itzel was amazing and her knowledge and expertise made it easy to choose a resort and a wedding package that fit what we wanted. If it weren’t for her and the rest of the Modern Destination team our special day would not have been as amazing and spectacular as it was.
Modern Destination help me achieve my dream wedding in Cancun, Mexico. The staff that I worked with especially Heather and Mike was amazing. They were very responsive, accommodating and a pleasure to work with. I am so pleased that I chose Modern Destination to help me with my destination wedding. I highly recommend them to my friend and family. Thanks Heather & Mike for a great experience!!!
What can I say about Heather and Chris! They are a wonderful team! My husband and I were at a crossroads as to what would be the best wedding location for our wedding. I think Heather made the best recommendation for us to give Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Punta Cana a shot. Heather and Chris are very professional and listened to our concerns. The only negative downfall was dealing with the inconsistencies with the Miami and onsite wedding coordinators. Heather and Chris were awesome in making contacts to get the answers we needed with the resort. However, once we made it to the resort and met the onsite coordinator, we knew right then that she was going to make sure our day was special. I trusted her immediately. Thank you so much Heather for the recommendation! I am going to miss speaking with them because they are so kind! Thanks again Heather and Chris!
Heather and Chris from Modern Weddings were wonderful in helping my husband and I (as well as our 60 guests) travel to the Dominican Republic for our wedding. We had no idea where to start when we decided we wanted a destination wedding and Heather helped us quickly narrow down our options. Her recommendation was spot on- we had a gorgeous wedding and it was affordable for many of our guests to attend. Chris provided each guest with a detailed itinerary for their trip and everyone arrived without issue. Heather and Chris were professional, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Thank you for helping us with the wedding of our dreams!
Heather and Chris from Modern Destination Weddings were key in making our Cancun wedding an absolute success! They helped us pick the perfect location for our wedding, handled guest accommodations, and were there to answer any questions we had along the way.
My hubby & I always knew we wanted a destination wedding. After getting engaged, I had no clue on where and how to start. So I started googling around and I came across Modern Destination Wedding's website. I filled out my info on the website and believe it or not, I got a call the next day! I got a call from the Heather! She was such a delight. The moment we spoke, I felt like I've known her for years! She made sure she took notes of my dream wedding and yes, she made everything come true! I was not an easy one.... I had the craziest requests.. I planned a wedding in 7 months. Heather stayed on top of everything. She was our go to girl! While Heather took care of hubby & I, my guest were assigned to another travel agent, Mike. All of my family and friends said he was great to work with. He made sure he responded quickly with quotes and booking all of their travel plans in a timely manner. Over all we would give Modern Destination far more than 5 stars but unfortunately that's the limit :( They are amazing! They made me feel so secure, safe and worry free. I find myself trying to convince those that aren't interested in a destination wedding because of our life changing experience.
Modern Destination weddings was AMAZING!!! Made my dream wedding a reality!!!! From our first conversation, Heather told me she would be with us every step of the way and she was - she was knowledgeable, patient, supportive and made planning a wedding in Mexico easy!!!! Having our own travel agent, Dustin, made things easy for our guests. The whole process was efficient, organized and our wedding was PERFECT! We don't know how else it would have happened without Modern Destination Weddings!!!
Made My Day Effortless!Reviewed on 1/31/2016
I felt a bit overwhelmed by the task of planning a destination wedding. As if planning a wedding in a location we had never been to (and would not go to until out wedding day) was not enough, we had to think about travel and accommodations for 40 guests. Solution: Modern Destination Weddings. Heather was our gal and she was a heaven-sent. We corresponded via email and phone a couple of times and before we knew it, we had several options of wedding and honeymoon plans that fit our requests. Once we selected our option, they took care of everything including booking airfare and hotel for all of our guests. We arrived at our destination carefree knowing everything had been taken care of. All of our guests were amazed by the ease of the process and very pleased with their vacation. I was a worry-free bride! We put down a $100 deposit that was later applied to the package we selected, making the service free. Truth be told, I would have paid much more for the peace of mind I received!
My Destionation WeddingReviewed on 4/11/2015 Rylee M
Modern Destination Weddings was extremely easy to work with. They helped me every step of the way planning travel for my guest and helped coordinate the best location for my wedding. I had the pleasure of working with Rhonda and Chris. They were absolutely amazing people. They truly find joy in their jobs and it shows every time you speak with them. I had the pleasure of working with them for almost two years and wouldn't change one thing. My wedding consisted of about 50 people and planning for 50 people to go to Mexico wasn't going to be something I could do on my own. Modern Destination wedding was very efficient and dedicated to making my wedding special. I highly recommend Modern Destination Weddings!

I wanted to write this review because of the unbelievable customer service we received from this company. We worked with Rhonda Dehner. She went above and beyond to ensure that our daughters wedding day was the dream that she had planned. There were a few hiccups in our plans. Rhonda was always there to guide us and help us communicate with our coordinator in Mexico. I would highly recommend this company if you are planning a destination wedding
