"How we started...
The inspiration for the company was born when Kimberly, the founder and previous owner, became a “runaway bride” while trying to plan her own destination wedding in Mexico. While living in the U.S, she realized how stressful it would be to plan her fairytale wedding in another country and she just wanted to “run away” and hand this huge responsibility to someone else.
After an extensive search for a qualified US-based planner to organize a "dream wedding" in a foreign country, she recognized the need for such a service. She established Runaway Bride Destination Weddings in 2011 and the rest, as they say….is history.
We understands the stress that can go into planning a wedding, and she knows that a destination wedding takes even more effort and attentiveness to execute successfully. The wedding planner offers the following services:

I only have great things to say about working with Runaway Bride Destinations!
Working with Runaway Bride Destinations was easy and fun. I don't have a bad thing to say. Kimberly was super responsive, flexible and patient during the entire planning process and the execution was flawless - it made the experience stress-free and a lot of fun. Kimberly has great vendor relationships and is creative and quick to adapt to any changes. Also, SUPER organized. She remembered every email and comment I ever made, which helped bring my vision to life during the 3-day event. I would work with Kimberly and Runaway Bride Destinations again and would recommend her to any friend planning a wedding.Sent on 11/11/2019

Rab was beyond incredible!
It's so hard to put into words just how incredible the Runaway Bride Team really is. We worked with Kimberly and Xanath for over a year planning the destination wedding of our dreams and everything they did exceed our wildest expectations. From the initial site selection trip, to hotel contract negotiations, to budgeting, to vendor selection, to our planning visit and most importantly to the 5 events throughout our wedding weekend they were with us every step of the way. We literally never had to worry. The contract negotiation process with the hotel took months but Kimberly handled it like a pro – collecting our thoughts, giving us her advice, and working with the hotel to make sure it worked for us. Had it not been for her we probably would have given up half way through! She is calm, organized, and so knowledgeable! Xanath is truly a wedding planning angel – her bubbly personality, smile, and never give up attitude got us through every little hiccup we experienced along the way. We seriously looked forward to our weekly calls with her. She made every idea of ours into a reality (and we had a ton of ideas…) her knowledge, wisdom, vendor relationships, and budget skills are unlike anything I have ever seen (and I am an event planner!). Once we arrived in paradise the RAB team was on top of every single detail – they worked tirelessly to make sure all 5 of our events were executed flawlessly. They were so on top of it they never even bothered us – so we got to enjoy the entire weekend with our guests instead of running around making sure everything was all set. All 120 of our guests were left speechless and even we were blown away at how it all came together. They truly cared about making our wedding weekend so special. We seriously owe the weekend of our lives to them!! I’d hire RAB over and over again and can’t recommend them enough!Sent on 12/05/2018

Many congratulations and all the best for a happily ever after together.

Runaway Bride Destination Weddings's reply:Thanks so much, Yanet! It was a true pleasure to work with you and Andy and be part of your special day. xoxo
Kimberly and the Runawaybride team are the ultimate in professionalism in this industry. As a Rabbi who officiates Jewish and Interfaith destination weddings, I always look forward to an event that is planned by Kim. My life and the lives of all involved are easier because Kim is so detail oriented. We know that everything will happen as and WHEN it is supposed to happen.
I have worked with this team and they are very impressive. They make large events look easy to pull off with grace and style. The Hindu weddings they also provide are perfect to every detail. It is easy for a bride to feel relaxed knowing Runaway Bride is taking care of their event. I look forward to working with them much more in the future.
I can say one word for Runaway: professionals. They never fail you, they compromise with you totally and go with you from beggining to the end. They feel your event if like will be for themselves. We love to work with them, absolutelly comunication and flexibility. We work very together, we can recommend totally.
