  • Working with Runaway Bride Destinations was easy and fun. I don't have a bad thing to say. Kimberly was super responsive, flexible and patient during the entire planning process and the execution was flawless - it made the experience stress-free and a lot of fun. Kimberly has great vendor relationships and is creative and quick to adapt to any changes. Also, SUPER organized. She remembered every email and comment I ever made, which helped bring my vision to life during the 3-day event. I would work with Kimberly and Runaway Bride Destinations again and would recommend her to any friend planning a wedding.
