We LOVED working with Amy. She was friendly, creative, and easy to work with. She helped us plan a truly once in a lifetime honeymoon to Fiji (all within our budget!). She sent us to locations we never would have found on our own, and provided clear insights into the local people, culture, and offerings. We highly recommend Amy to anyone who is looking to have a truly once in a lifetime honeymoon without all the stress of planning it yourself (I mean you’re already planning a wedding, right!).
Amy was so amazing in helping my husband and I plan an epic & fun-filled two-week honeymoon in Thailand. We had so many ideas and so many questions about Thailand and what we wanted out of our trip, and she held our hand throughout the entire planning process and came up with an amazing itinerary for us. We traveled to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Krabi & Phuket, and despite traveling all throughout the country, Amy helped make all the flights and car rides a smooth transition for us from one spot to the next. She even communicated with us while we were there to make sure everything was okay. She went above and beyond for us, and played a huge part in making it the greatest trip of our lives. Thank you Amy!
Amy helped us plan our honeymoon in Greece, which was amazing! All of our hotels were in the absolute best locations, and our travel from island to island was simple and easy. After months of work and wedding-related stress, I was just so happy to relax on our honeymoon and not have to worry about the details because Amy took care of everything. (Erin & Tom. May 2015)
Amy Vecchione really did make our wedding something to cherish all our lives. I would never have expected such an incredible amount of our guests reiterating the same theme, "it was just amazing", we were just left speechless. All her long hours (midnight emails) & hard work paid off for getting a pretty complicated event to flow so smoothly. Between the rehearsal diner NYC boat cruise, and the Hungarian Violinist pair. Amy, with all her business contacts really did deliver beyond all expectations. We cannot thank her enough, she was a great listener to what we wanted. Thanks so much, Amy! (Winnie & Laszlo, August 2015)
You are amazing! Thank you Amy. Can't imagine having had to do this ourselves. (Emily & Matt, June 2015).
Your warmth and professionalism is greatly appreciated and will be fondly remembered as we look back on our wedding day. (Jen & Ira, July 2011)
I cannot thank you enough for all your help with the wedding. We enjoyed every minute of the planning. You were always so helpful, responsive, full of ideas (and insider knowledge). The experience was really great.
Thank you many times over for all of your wonderful and tireless efforts...hugs to you and your team! Love you! (Beth, 2011)
Just wanted to say that last night made my dreams come true! Thank you guys so very much for everything and we appreciate all you did to accommodate us!!! Everyone is buzzing about how fabulous it was! I couldn't be happier, it was truly magical! :)
We cannot thank you enough for all you’ve done to make our “dream wedding” happen. Thanks for being honest, attentive, responsive and helping us stay stress-free because you were all those things. We’re happy you were a part of our wedding journey! (Angela & Michael, June 2010)
We reached out to Amy about 6 weeks before we wanted to go on our Honeymoon. We didn't even know which country we wanted to go to. Amy worked directly with us to pick a location and eventually planned an amazing trip to the Amalfi Coast in Italy for us!
Amy is amazing! My husband and I worked with Amy to plan our destination wedding in Mexico, and we could not have done it without her. When we decided to go to Mexico to see some places in person, Amy helped us narrow down which places to see, made the appointments, and scheduled our transfers to and from every resort. She checked in with us after each day of resort visits to see how everything went and have a better understanding of the type of resort we liked. We ended up visiting about seven resorts, and I highly recommend it. Amy told us how places can look different in person, and it's so true! When we chose our resort, Amy was instrumental in reserving the room block and negotiating with the resort to get us lower room rates. Choosing room types and how many days to reserve for each room can be very complicated but Amy takes the time to explain it to you. Amy makes it super simple for your friends and family to book their rooms. She also has some seriously good connections. For example, she recommended our photographer, who was not affiliated with the resort, and we are so glad she did. As it got closer to our wedding, my husband and I had some difficulty communicating with the resort. Amy stepped in, really advocated for us, and ensured that the rest of the planning ran smoothly. When we got to the resort a few days before our wedding, Amy also happened to be in Mexico. She took the time to meet us at our resort and sit in on our meeting with our resort-assigned wedding coordinator. She asked important questions that we didn't think to ask, and made sure we were getting everything we wanted. Throughout the entire planning process she was incredibly responsive and spoke with us on the phone even late at night if we were too busy during the day. I seriously don't know when she sleeps! Planning a wedding is stressful no matter how you do it, but I am so glad we had Amy to discuss venues, advise us, and advocate for us. It truly makes all the difference. Amy is also helping us plan our two-week honeymoon in Italy, and she has made the process very enjoyable. She is incredibly knowledgeable and takes the time to explain all of our options to us. I highly recommend her!
My husband and I got married on a tiny island in Belize, and we wouldn't have found it if not for Amy. She listened to what we were looking for (a small, non- traditional wedding in a natural environment), found the absolute ideal place for us, helped us get our friends and families there, and had lots of great advice and ideas about how to make our destination wedding perfect. It was wonderful! She's an expert, hands-down (Ashleigh & Joe, January 2016)
Amy Vecchione helped us to plan my daughter's wedding this past June. Amy helped us secure the venue and was always a resource for everything from flowers to suggestions for personalizing the decor to signature cocktails, etc. She listened to my daughter's and her groom's preferences and always had great suggestions. She was available whenever we needed her and acted as our agent and liaison with the caterer and venue. We all feel that Amy was a pleasure to work with! She always came through with what we needed and, in particular, went out of her way to secure particular ingredients for cocktails late the night before the wedding when needed. I would work with her again in a minute. After the lovely wedding (despite pouring rain!) we wished we had another event to plan just so we can work with her again. (Susan, mother of the bride, June 2015)
We had the wedding of our dreams because of Aventina Romance Travel & Events!
Amy, from Aventina Romance Travel & Events, is AMAZING! She was detail oriented, gave suggestions & ideas, and most of all she was patient with us and our travel group. We felt as if she was solely working with us, had several wedding groups at the same time.
Using Amy from Aventina Travel & Events to help us plan our dream honeymoon was one of the best decisions I have ever made. She took all the stress out of planning a honeymoon and we were left with all the fun parts of making decisions on where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. After our first conversation with Amy she presented us with the most fantastic honeymoon ideas and her presentation of each was amazing. She was very respectful of our budget and because of her we were able to go on the honeymoon of a lifetime to Dubai and the Maldives. I highly recommend using Amy to help plan your next vacation and we look forward to working with her again to help us plan our next adventure!
Let's just say that without Amy my wedding would have not been a success. We tied the knot in Riviera Maya Mexico in August 2015. She helped us with securing the hotel and rooms for my guests and myself, planning of the ceremony and reception, and all of the travel arrangements. She went above and beyond for us. We were able to get special accommodations, upgrades on rooms, and even my special dietary needs were met. The only thing I would do different is have her their with us for the day of. It would have made things run smoother. I had such minimal stress and was really able to enjoy the vacation part of our trip. Everyone was so happy. You will not regret having Amy at your side.
Amy will discerningly listen to your dream. And then she will make the dream come true within your budget! She's a magician!
Thank you for all your help throughout our journey! It was much appreciated! (Brandi & Vanessa, November 2012)
The trip was amazing! Excellent recommendation on the resort, we absolutely loved it!!! We gained 5 lbs each LOL. (Carey & Jose, June 2015)
We are writing with gratitude for all of your assistance over the last ten months. We quite frankly, we were ready to elope! .
Amy Vecchione of Aventina Travel and Events is beyond fantastic. She is friendly, calm, competent, and works to make sure your events meet the bride’s (and groom) vision. She takes a concept and works with it until it is perfect. We hired Amy to be our wedding planner/travel consultant for our wedding at The Hard Rock Punta Cana (DR) on September 29, 2018. There were so many different parts going into planning our (absolutely AMAZING) destination wedding, that I could not imagine getting it all done with Amy. Amy helped us secure our room block at the hotel and rooms for our guests. She did all our travel arrangements and was a phone call away for our guests with any questions/concerns about the events and the travel going into our wedding. She went above and beyond for us and we are so appreciative of her. We received a room upgrade upon arrival, all our guests’ arrivals went smoothly, and any accommodations were taken care of. This process was stress free and I was able to enjoy every minute of my wedding and honeymoon week all because of Amy’s hard work and dedication to making my visions come true. Amy was phenomenal and there is no better person to have by your side during this special time!
Amy Vecchione of Aventina Romance Travel and Events is in a class by herself. She has lifted wedding planning into a new professional level. She is level headed, calm, competent, and works to make sure the event meets the bride and groom’s vision. She takes a concept and works with it until it is perfect. We hired Amy to be the wedding planner for my daughter’s wedding. There were a lot of moving parts to the wedding. My daughter had just moved to California but the wedding was in the Hudson Valley in New York State. The rehearsal dinner was a big hoe down sponsored by my daughter’s future in-laws and the brunch after the wedding was being hosted by friend of the groom’s family from California. So there were a lot of different events as well as personalities involved. In addition, the space where the wedding was going to take place had “good bones” but needed to be made beautiful but in keeping with the rustic setting and my daughter’s desire not to have a sterile “New York City” hotel wedding. Amy coordinated all the moving parts of the three events flawlessly. The wedding space was transformed into a beautiful space with a rustic, informal, fun atmosphere which was what my daughter wanted. She kept all the different people involved happy and calm. All the services for the wedding came within budget. I would obviously highly recommend Amy Vecchione of Aventina Romance Travel and Events (Leila, August 2016)
Last night was the best night of my life ::)
We are having an amazing time. By far the best vacation we've been on. We will certainly come to you to plan our anniversary :)
We loved loved loved our Honeymoon! You are amazing! Thank you Amy. Can't imagine having had to plan this ourselves.
Amy is just fantastic! She brought so much expertise and knowledge about details we would never be able to navigate ourselves. Plus, she makes you feel so comfortable. It's easier to speak about your opinions and get what you really want. Everything Amy had a part in turned out perfectly. I feel so thankful to have worked with her. (Hope & Dave, August 2012)
I'm over here tearing up! I loved this location and to be able to have our wedding there is a dream come true because of you!
