Tracy French ~ Destination Wedding Specialist

For brides who seek complete guidance, we identify the bride’s personal style through an initial meeting and questionnaire – to learn the bride’s vision of her dream wedding. Our goal is to free brides and their families from the stressful elements of planning a destination wedding while still allowing them to enjoy the process.

When a bride has definite ideas for her wedding, we serve more as a mediator, to persuasively communicate the bride’s wishes, while respecting the opinions of the vendors.

Tracy delivers!

Tracy absolutely delivered when it came to our wedding day (week) We chose Cabo on her recomendation for our destination & we could not be more pleased with the Lux experience provided to our guests and us. Casa Del Mar was incredible! Tracy has curated some really special relationships with her vendors over the years and it definitely shows. Planning a wedding in a different country is no easy task, but with her expertise we felt secure in our choices. She was so responsive throughout the whole year and a half of planning we did. I'm a HUGE foodie and this was something I was stressed about being we had never tasted it or seen the resort ourselves. ( I work for a luxury resort, my standards can be unattainable at times) I had a slight fear it wouldn't live up to our expectations and it absolutely surpassed it. A whole new level of stress being responsible for everyone you love & their experience as well. Her research is second to none. I think its really important to be lined up with the perfect person/ planner based on your personality and desires. Tracy has a very large job to do and a timeline to abide by, giving her these reigns is one of the best choices we made. She was the perfect fit for us and I would reccomend her services 1000x over. Tracy, if you ever see this... THANK YOU! Please, come visit if you're ever in NY!

Mother of Bride Destination Wedding success

My daughters wedding came to life just as she had visioned and planned with Tracy French as her planner. We had an amazing experience and the wedding and all planned events were perfect. We could not have been happier with her services. Our daughter was all smiles the entire week at Tulum. Having Tracy allowed us to just enjoy our time with family and friends and make lasting memories. Thanks Tracy

Wonderful wedding thanks to planning by Tracy!

Tracy is wonderful and I am very confident that without her, our Destination wedding would not have been the huge success that it was. From the beginning of the wedding planning process, I knew that I wanted to have a destination wedding but had no idea where to start with choosing the right resort. When I started to investigate different resorts and considered touring properties, I was quickly overwhelmed by the different options and amount of cost and time it would take to decide and coordinate a wedding that my guests would love without going insane. I'm so glad I engaged with Tracy when I did because she helped us through every step of the process. She is thoughtful and efficient in her communications and worked with me to understand the vision we had for our day and then presented us with 4 options that fit our vision and budget. She then works with you throughout the entire process to coordinate guest hotel arrangements, work with the resort and all external vendors, and ensure the décor and coordination is all executed flawlessly on the wedding day. My husband and I got to truly enjoy our trip and wedding because I had complete trust in Tracy to ensure that the day ran smoothly and I did not have to worry about all of the little details as I knew that her and her team had it covered. Tracy has the expertise unlike anyone else I found when I was originally searching for a planner and it was wonderful to have that in my corner throughout the wedding planning process. Instead of spending hours and hours researching and coordinating with vendors, I had monthly calls with Tracy where she would present me with options and all I had to do was provide feedback and select from the all-great options that she provided. Tracy coordinates all of the guest travel which was a lifesaver for me, as when my guests asked miscellaneous questions, I was able to direct them to her. There are so many details that go into coordinating travel for a group of 50 including so many questions from individual guests that Tracy handled flawlessly. Everyone had such a great time and I've been asked multiple times when we're all going on our next trip together since they all had such a wonderful time at the wedding. Tracy also comes to the venue to help execute on the actual wedding weekend and this was invaluable to ensuring that everything ran smoothly. For example, the day that Tracy arrived she realized that the location for our welcome party would get very buggy at night and was able to work with the venue to move dinner inside all without me having to do anything. It is so helpful that she is working directly with the resort, as I would never have considered so many of the things the she helped us to execute and coordinate, and resolved little issues as soon as they came up. I would recommend Tracy and the French Connection Events to any Bride looking to plan a destination wedding - I could not have had such a successful event without her help and am truly grateful for all of the work that she did to make our wedding so special.
