Need help with your destination wedding? Eileen is the one!
Eileen is truly the BEST! When we decided to have a destination wedding, it was overwhelming to say the least. I wasn't even sure where to begin. But, then we found Eileen, our savior! She has a great relationship with Sandals and helped us every step of the way. She was on all of our wedding phone calls with us with the resort and made sure all our questions were answered. She literally did everything for us and all of our guests. We had to change our date due to COVID and she quickly and easily got our entire wedding group switched over to the new date. Then, we had to switch resorts and again, Eileen was there to make us and our guests feel at ease. Eileen even called the resort while we were there to check on us. Eileen has become a friend to us and our family and we plan to stay in touch even though our wedding is over. You can't go wrong with Eileen, she is amazing! Thanks again for everything, we could not have pulled off our dream wedding in Jamaica without you, Eileen!!Sent on 08/13/2020

Can't say enough good things!
Eileen was amazing! I am so glad I found her on this website because I don't think things would have gone as smoothly without her! We had to move our wedding several times due to the pandemic but she made sure everything was re-booked timely and kept us in the loop! I could call her any time of the day and she was available. She always answered all my questions, concerns, and worries about the trip! I don't think I could have done all the moving of the booking & wedding details with a destination wedding on my own! We booked another vacation next year and she will be handling all of that way! Can't recommend her enough for your travel and wedding needs for a destination celebration!Sent on 09/03/2020

Eileen is the best there is!
Eileen is the absolute best! She is very responsive and detail oriented to make sure we get what we want, with as little worry or stress as possible. If plans change, she is flexible and accommodating. We will never use another travel agent for our travel needs-I hope she never retires :)Sent on 09/04/2019

Eileen is Incredible!!
Where to even begin with how happy I am to have found Eileen - contacting her was honestly the best decision I made when planning our wedding (besides who to marry of course :) ). I had already decided on a resort by the time I decided it might be best to work with a travel agent, but in hindsight I would've asked Eileen for her expert opinion from the start. I had a wedding of 100 people at a resort in Jamaica so I had a ton of questions and concerns about the size of my group. Eileen was there for me every step of the way, checking with the resort on every question I had no matter how big or small and she put me at ease throughout planning. She even ensured that my brother-in-law with special needs would be taken care of from a menu perspective where he is especially limited. My guests all had such positive experiences working with her and everything where Eileen was concerned went smoothly.Sent on 06/05/2019
Eileen was on site during the time of my wedding and even when we had a few issues with the resort, she stepped in to work with the resort and fought to make sure they did everything they could to make up for it. She made sure my bridesmaids and I had a comfortable, spacious area to get ready that really got us excited for the wedding. Eileen was so gracious with my family and really bent over backwards for us. She is also the sweetest, most lovely person who genuinely cares about her brides and making their destination wedding amazing. I truly cannot recommend Eileen enough!!

Ms. Nason was amazing, we were originally going to the Punta Cana however we changed and went to Jamaica. Ms. Nason quickly changed our accommodations without any hesitation. I would recommend her to anyone. My husband and I truly enjoyed ourselves..Sent on 09/10/2019

Beautiful Jamaica Wedding
Eileen was great help with everything. She booked and assisted my guest with all of their bookings and additional questions. I didn't have to worry about any of it. She assisted me in choosing a location as well as put me in touch with the wedding planner. I ran into an issue with the planner and Eileen quickly contacted the wedding department got things squared away with me a new planner. Up until the day before we left for Jamaica she was constantly updating me with any booking changes and asking if I needed her assistance with anyone. I was able to meet her in Jamaica and she was so nice and asking if there was anything we needed leading up until the wedding or on the wedding day. I'd tasked everything to my sister lol so everything was covered but I most definitely appreciated her offering. Our wedding turned out to be everything! It was a great day(besides the rain) everything went just the way it was supposed to.Sent on 12/13/2019

Sandals Ochi Beach/Gurley Wedding
My husband and I never in a million years thought a destination wedding would be for us. Eileen Nason not only made it possible but she made it so easy and seamless. She was extremely responsive and flexible with calls, as our hours are a little crazy. I would 100% recommend Eileen!! She made our dreams come true and we can't wait to book our next trip with her.Sent on 03/05/2019

Eileen helped my husband and me plan our destination wedding and honeymoon at Sandals La Source in Grenada. I called Eileen and gave her an idea of what we wanted, our budget, and the timeframe we could travel due to work - which was less than 90 days away! Within hours of contacting her she had put together several options at different locations, including the exact room type, airfare, and total cost. She was also able to give us her own personal insight about each location which was very helpful. We decided on Sandals La Source in Grenada and couldn’t have been happier! It’s GORGEOUS and absolutely perfect for a wedding/honeymoon. Eileen took care of so many of the details, ensuring everything we wanted for our wedding came to fruition. As soon as we decided upon our location, she called the resort and reserved the day, time, and exact location for our ceremony to make sure we had our ceremony exactly where we wanted (late afternoon/evening on the beach.) Because of her extensive knowledge and experience, she was able to give me invaluable advice in so many areas that no matter how much research I’d done myself (and I’m a HUGE researcher), I never would’ve known without her. She also helped expedite the paperwork for our marriage license so everything was taken care of before we arrived and we didn’t have to waste any of our time on the island getting the required documents. Eileen made sure all we had to do after arriving was relax and enjoy! And she did it all within a few months! But... we missed our flight TO Grenada. I called Eileen thinking I’d leave her a message as it was very early on a Saturday morning, but she answered! She immediately helped us find the next flight and then called the resort to arrange for our stay to be extended another day so we didn’t miss out on a moment of our honeymoon. Eileen is AMAZING and we’ll be using her for all of our future trips! I cannot say enough good things about her! She’s THE BEST!!! Thank you Eileen!Sent on 07/28/2018

My wife is a breast cancer survivor just wrapping up chemotherapy. We wanted to enjoy a special time to relax and celebrate her journey. Eileen once again made our weekend just incredible. She is so hands on ensuring everything is special. She goes above and beyond and always makes sure she is responsive and available for any questions. Her knowledge of Sandals and Beaches is second to none and she can personally recommend rooms and suites based of occasion. I have and will continue to recommend her to all friends and family and already booked again with her for our next trip with our Children. She is like a member of our family now and knows us all so well to make personal recommendations!Sent on 12/03/2018
Destination-Wedding-Experts's reply:Thanks Wesley. It is wonderful to work with you. Thank you so much for the nice words and recommendation.

We worked with Mrs. Eileen Nason for our destination wedding at Beaches Ocho Rios. Mrs. Eileen was always there no matter the time nor the question. She always seem to go above and beyond whenever there was an issue at hand. She also made sure that even after the trip everything was good to go! She worked with me and all 14 of our guess. Everyone always talked about how nice and pleasant she was to talk to on the phone. I would highly recommend and use her again in the future.Sent on 07/11/2017

Do not hesitate to give Eileen with Destination Wedding Experts a call!Sent on 05/05/2017
She gave us valuable information to help us make a quick and informed decision on where we wanted to have our destination wedding. She was very responsive and willing to answer any questions that we had before, during, and after our Weddingmoon.
Our flight was delayed so we missed our connecting flight to our destination. We called Eileen and she worked with the resort to extend our stay, so that we would not lose a night on our honeymoon! We highly recommend her services and will definitely work with her again in the future!

Eileen helped us plan everything from location because we weren't sure of the destination we wanted to helping ensure each of our guest were not only booked but had all the proper transportation from the airport to the hotel. No detail left unturned. She was also available to answer the 100+ questions I had throughout the process. I cannot say enough good things!!Sent on 11/08/2016

Janet Penyak is absolutely amazing. She is so helpful, knowledgeable, and such a pleasure to work with. I feel terrible that it has taken this long to write a review for her because she was so fantastic. My husband and I used Janet to help us plan our honeymoon to Spain and Italy. She sent us different flights, hotels, itineraries, etc., and she helped guide us to our dream honeymoon. The hotels we had in Barcelona, Florence, and Venice were outstanding - she helped me pick the room types that were best for us, and oh my goodness, were they incredible - and she listened to what we wanted and made great recommendations.Sent on 02/18/2017
She also got us incredible deals on all the hotels and flights (I went on other travel sites to compare prices to see what kind of deals there were, and the price differences between what she brought to us for an entire trip verses what I was able to find was literally thousands of dollars - I was floored), and made sure we had transportation set up and ready for us in all pieces of our trip. Not having to worry about anything - how to get to the airport, when we needed to book accommodations and travel - was honestly a Godsend after the craziness of wedding planning.
I really can't say enough about how phenomenal Janet was. She was prompt in all her correspondences, helpful, and honest. I was a little nervous using a travel service to book the most exciting trip I have ever taken, especially doing it all electronically and over the phone, but Janet put my mind at ease and made our honeymoon the most incredible experience we could have had. She also let all the hotels know we were on our honeymoon, and each hotel did something special for us, which was so sweet and made us feel even more excited than we already were.
I will never use any other person or site to book a trip - Janet is incredible, and I am so thankful for all her help in planning the honeymoon of our dreams!

Eileen was extremely helpful, throughout, while planning my weddingmoon at Sandals in Negril, Jamaica. She sent pictures of other clients to put my mind at ease since we had only seen pictures on the Sandals website.Sent on 07/25/2016
I am an email person so Eileen was flexible in that nature, usually responding quickly unless out of town... BUT even while out of town she would ask her team to contact me if she was unable to do something on her own.
When I had questions or issues Eileen answered or played the middle man until answers were sought. I will definitely contact Eileen for our next adventure to the Caribbean. She is very knowledgeable about the resorts we discussed.

Eileen Nason and the staff at Travel Leaders were excellent in helping us plan our destination wedding at Sandals Montego Bay, Jamaica.

About a year and a half ago my now wife and I were looking for ideas and options for a destination wedding, and thought that we had decided on a destination. At the suggestion and referral of a co-worker we set up an appointment with Eileen Nason at travel leaders. We explained our timeline (1 year or so from that date) and our plans. She gave us our options for our original destination, however also provided us with an alternative to help suit the needs of some of the guests who we hoped would attend our destination wedding. Together we decided on Ocho Rios, Jamaica in the Sandals family of resorts. The shorter trip and budget friendly options made it possible for more of our friends and family to attend.Sent on 08/03/2016
Over the next month I sent multiple emails with names addresses to Eileen and her staff to send out packages to our guests. Each request was greeted with eagerness and was completed swiftly. She followed up with me and stayed in touch with our guests throughout the process. In all, we had 39 people going to a wedding in Jamaica, which astounded and stressed us a little. We had no idea how to coordinate that or plan for it...but Eileen assured us that everything would be taken care of. And again, it was with speed and eagerness.
Everyone made it without trouble. All of our wedding requests were fulfilled, and we had the time of our lives. Eileen and her staff worked tireless to make our magical moment happen, and I can say that anyone else would have put as much time and care into making this happen for us. We are forever thankful for the opportunity to work with her. She takes pride in her work, knows what she is doing and truly cares for her clients. I would not recommend, but rather urge you to contact her and her staff if you are considering a destination wedding. It's not just a sign or a motto, they really do know what they are doing.
In fact we just met with her the other day to book and plan our next of many trips to come.
