From setting us up with Apple Vacations, to working with our guests, and to answering all of our crazy questions. They were always pleasant and helpful! Our guests were very thankful for the support Samantha and Amanda gave to them. Some of the guests have never been outside of the country- but the girls were happy to assist them booking their flights and resort. Everything went smoothly-and I couldn't be more excited and happy how easy it was to plan via Apple Vacations.

I wouldn't have changed a thing.

We really enjoyed our experience using Apple Vacations Destination Weddings, planning our wedding was easy which I wanted.

Kendall & Robert

Amanda and Sarah did a great job over all. The men that picked us up from the airport were fabulous. They made the transition very easy and comforting. We would go through Apple Vacations again because of that. We also appreciate getting the information in the mail prior so we knew what to expect. We found out too that it was cheaper to use Apple Vacations transportation compared to non-Apple travelers.

Anna & Tyson

Anna & Tyson (Now Sapphire, February 2015)

The most memorable moment was how gorgeous the setup was and how friendly and attentive the staff were.

My experience with Apple was great. They were always very helpful and responsive to all of my questions and concerns. The whole week leading up to the wedding was amazing. We had over 70 guests with us so it was a fun party all week!

Theresa & Andrew

Theresa & Andrew (Riu Palace Costa Rica, December 2014)

During Memorial Day weekend my boyfriend and I went away to spend some time together before he went back to work out of state. He proposed, and we both knew right away that we wanted to have a destination wedding. We decided on Costa Rica, found a hotel we liked and decided to try out Apple Vacations. Once we contacted them planning our trip and wedding was so easy. Amanda, the wedding specialist, was awesome. She was always available if we had questions and she set up everything - booking our room, getting a block of rooms, helping with the flight! She created a website so all of our guests could book their stay at the hotel and purchase a flight. She added our honeymoon registry to the website so everyone only had one place they had to go. She took all the stress out of planning the wedding and having to try to coordinate everyone else's trip details. When we got to Costa Rica the transport to and from the hotel was flawless. The company Apple contracts with to do excursions was outstanding. Our trip to Costa Rica was so amazing we're actually trying to figure out how to move there! I would recommend Apple Vacations, and my husband and I will now only plan future vacations with them!

Cassandra & Bruce

Cassandra & Bruce (Riu Guancaste, December 2014)

I appreciate the recommendations given to me by Samantha. I was thinking about booking my wedding at a different resort (which is where we had our honeymoon) and I am so happy I didn't. The Hilton was nice for a honeymoon but not for a wedding. The RIU was perfect for a wedding and I am so thankful that is where we booked it.

Shannon & Stewart

Shannon & Stewart (Now Jade, December 2014)

Apple Vacations made things so easy and seamless. We would recommend Apple Destination Weddings to anyone looking to do a destination wedding!

Simone & Malin

Simone & Malin (Ocean Coral & Turquesa, December 2014)

Everyone was so helpful but Kelly was there at the end. She had to deal with my nerves, fears, frustrations with the resort, guests, weird payments...and she did it was class and style. Never making me feel as if I was bothering her. She made me feel so comfortable that everything was going to be ok.

Ingrid & David

Ingrid & David (Riu Vallarta, November 2014)

Our overall experience with our wedding specialist and hotel wedding coordinator was EXCELLENT. They were both extremely helpful, professional, and they exceeded our expectations in every way. This was a dream wedding for Ingrid and I, and a wedding that our relatives won't soon forget (which is saying something considering we have over 150 immediate relatives and weddings are common to say the least!). I owe this experience to our wedding specialist and hotel coordinator. They certainly are great at what they do!

Nicole & Brian

Nicole & Brian (Now Larimar, November 2014)

Amanda and the entire Apple Vacations team that we dealt with were awesome! So helpful and attentive to our needs!

Marylene & Fred

Marylene & Fred (Iberostar Costa Dorada, November 2014)

Samantha and Amanda were both exceptionally easy to work with during this process. Samantha was very diligent and efficient in relaying all the necessary information that we requested. She made sure to follow up with us timely and placed us in contact with our awesome wedding coordinator Rosina! I personally had little communication with Amanda since Samantha was our main point of contact. However, Amanda may have responded to some of our concerns on behalf of Samantha. Our overall experience was great! We also loved the travel website that was created by you all. We will definitely use Apple Vacations again.

Brittny & Oscar

Brittny & Oscar (Riu Santa Fe, November 2014)

Sam was very knowledgeable and patient. I emailed and called on several occasions and she was so helpful and patient with me. She always went above and beyond to help me. She was so kind as well. She sent reminders and happy notes which made me feel more than a customer, but a friend.

Kelly & Casper

Hanna & Ricardo

Hanna & Ricardo (Dreams Riviera Cancun, October 2014)

Lindsey & Nick

Lindsey & Nick (Dreams Puerto Aventuras, October 2014)

Harry listened to my wants and needs, helped me find the perfect resorts to choose from, answered all my questions all the time, was detail oriented, professional, considerate, helpful, understanding, and kind. He was friendly and fun too! I am thrilled with the experience.

Natalie & Jason

Natalie & Jason (Royal Suites Yucatan at Grand Palladium White Sands, October 2014)

Amanda is absolutely fabulous! She was always there when we needed her, even filling the role of wedding planner on several occasion. When we could not get a response from the wedding department at our resort she gladly sent multiple emails until they replied. As a bride, you don't want to be worried about the planning of your wedding (hard not to when it is in a different country) and Amanda definitely helped ease my mind! She is wonderful.

Jeannie & Michael (Dreams Puerto Aventuras, September 2014)

Samantha did an excellent job from start to finish by providing us with answers to the many questions we asked. She always replied promptly and professionally never making us feel like any question was stupid. Amanda provided the same type of professionalism to our guests. Together they both provided us with all the info we needed to make our day special not only for Floyd & I but for our guests in attendance. Because of their guidance it was an amazing week for all of us.

Dennie & Karen

Dennie & Karen (Riu Palace Tropical Bay, August 2014)

We would like to thank Samantha, our Wedding Specialist, for such a great experience!

Samantha was awesome, totally responsive, and explained everything as needed.

Breanna & Mason

Breanna & Mason (Now Jade, August 2014)

Samantha was nice enough to give me recommendations of resorts. She narrowed it down to 5 in the locations we selected, which made it so much easier for me. She then made it easy for everyone to book their rooms. I would definitely recommend Apple Vacations for anyone planning a destination wedding!

Zihui and Luke

Zihui & Luke (Dreams La Romana, August 2014)

Amanda is very professional. The timely responses were very helpful throughout the entire process. She was very good at reminding us of the promotions we were eligible for without us even needing to ask. It was a great experience to work with her and it helped reduce a lot of the stress of planning a destination wedding.

Julie & Michael

Julie & Michael (Iberostar Rose Hall Suites, July 2014)

Harry was such a pleasure to work with through the whole process of booking our destination wedding in Jamaica. He handled issues as soon as they came up and was always willing to help with whatever we needed. Marissa was also great with dealing with our guests and I heard many positive things about her. They are a great team together and I have already referred a few friends who are thinking of doing a destination wedding to Apple.

I've decided to contact Harry again for booking our 1st anniversary trip back to our resort :)

Tina and Bryan

Tina & Bryan (Iberostar Grand Rose Hall, July 2014)

Shelby and Justen

Shelby & Justen (Riu Playacar, June 2014)

Once my feet touched the sand and I saw the love of my life standing at the altar, everything seemed so magical!

Tamyka and Jason

Tamyka & Jason (Dreams Punta Cana, June 2014)

Very good service! I would recommend this to future couples. My experience was exceptional. I always had a quick response from Sam for the many questions that came up. The best thing about the destination wedding was being in paradise with some of your closest friends and family. I think a destination wedding takes a beautiful day and turns it into a beautiful week or however long you decide to stay.

Mari Kay and Joseph

Mari Kay & Joseph (Ocean Coral & Turquesa, June 2014)

I honestly wish I could have taken her to Mexico with us. Thank you for making it so easy for us and our guests.

Kerry and Jim

"Dani has been a wonderful example for any travel agent to model themselves after. She's honest, thorough, and willing to answer any/all questions. She made me feel our little trip for 15 was important to her and I know she genuinely cared that we have a positive experience for my daughter's destination wedding in Punta Cana. There's no one I would trust my travel experience to more. She is simply excellent. She represented Apple Vacations very well and has a gift with people, especially during the emotional and stressful times of wedding planning from afar."
