Alex Racey

Destination Wedding Specialist/Travel Specialist

I have a passion for Travel and for helping you plan your perfect Destination Wedding, Honeymoon, Family Vacation, Weekend Getaway, corporate travel or any other travel needs.

I have travelled myself to over 10 countries including many popular locations such as Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba, Bahamas, Grand Cayman, Mexico, St Lucia and all over the United States as well as some European destinations such as Italy, Spain and Austria. I have travelled by land, car, train, plane and by sea including cruises.

I grew up living on boat which is where my passion for travel began. I was home schooled and travelled a lot in my younger years. I now live on land but my spark for travel is still very much alive! With two children of my own now, I travel as often as I can with them as I think that seeing the world is one of life’s best ways to educate yourself and create amazing memories!

I became a Certified Destination Wedding and Honeymoon Travel Specialist in 2015.
