Honeymoon Islands {Vendor Love}

Even though the travel industry has changed drastically with the advent of online travel sites, I've always thought a good travel agent is crucial when planning a honeymoon. I've seen the miracles that honeymoon planners can pull off (free upgrades, extra amenities, welcome gifts) for no more than the client would have normally paid. Plus, honeymoon planners know the best resorts to fit each couple's personality (and the best resorts in general). They know which spots are paradise and which are just hype.

I've been recommending Teresa with Honeymoon Islands for close to twenty years now and she has made so many Engaging Affairs couples happy. I asked Teresa to share a little about her company and some of her top honeymoon recommendations. So here is a little about Teresa and stay tuned the rest of the week for her top honeymoon spots!

Honeymoon Islands specializes in luxury travel planning for the discriminating traveler. As masters in luxury & romantic travel, they take great pride in planning honeymoons, destination weddings, and celebration travel.

As President, Teresa Belcher has been recognized by the travel industry as an expert in honeymoon planning. With over 30 years in the travel business and a penchant for all the best that life has to offer, Teresa streamlined her business to focus on luxury romantic travel. She is dedicated to creating the most memorable travel experiences for her clients by understanding their individual needs and matching those needs with the appropriate destination/venue. She travels the world over evaluating new locales to determine if they meet the high standards set forth by Honeymoon Islands and fostering relationships with property managers so as to better serve her clients.

“Since my inception into the travel business, I have always had an unwavering passion for travel and making my clients happy.  I derive the greatest pleasure in the feedback that I get from my clients.  Beside my love of travel, I am romantic at heart.  It is my unwavering passion for romance and travel that led me to create my business Honeymoon Islands.  I think what separates me from other honeymoon planners is my genuine love for what I do and making people happy.  More important than the professional accolades, I live and breathe romance & travel and will go the distance to ensure that the honeymoons I put together for my clients creates memories for them that transcend lifetimes!”  

 Besides her love of luxury travel to destinations all over the world, Teresa is an avid animal lover and enjoys all the great things life has to offer; great food and wine, good friends and family. She especially loves dancing to the beat of good music! Surrounding herself with all the good things in life is what it is all about. "I strive every day to help others live their dream." She definitely lives the famous quote from Mark Twain, "Dance like there's nobody watching; love like you'll never get hurt. Sing like there's nobody listening; live like it's heaven on earth."
