Rab was beyond incredible!

It's so hard to put into words just how incredible the Runaway Bride Team really is. We worked with Kimberly and Xanath for over a year planning the destination wedding of our dreams and everything ... Read more they did exceed our wildest expectations. From the initial site selection trip, to hotel contract negotiations, to budgeting, to vendor selection, to our planning visit and most importantly to the 5 events throughout our wedding weekend they were with us every step of the way. We literally never had to worry. The contract negotiation process with the hotel took months but Kimberly handled it like a pro – collecting our thoughts, giving us her advice, and working with the hotel to make sure it worked for us. Had it not been for her we probably would have given up half way through! She is calm, organized, and so knowledgeable! Xanath is truly a wedding planning angel – her bubbly personality, smile, and never give up attitude got us through every little hiccup we experienced along the way. We seriously looked forward to our weekly calls with her. She made every idea of ours into a reality (and we had a ton of ideas…) her knowledge, wisdom, vendor relationships, and budget skills are unlike anything I have ever seen (and I am an event planner!). Once we arrived in paradise the RAB team was on top of every single detail – they worked tirelessly to make sure all 5 of our events were executed flawlessly. They were so on top of it they never even bothered us – so we got to enjoy the entire weekend with our guests instead of running around making sure everything was all set. All 120 of our guests were left speechless and even we were blown away at how it all came together. They truly cared about making our wedding weekend so special. We seriously owe the weekend of our lives to them!! I’d hire RAB over and over again and can’t recommend them enough!

The Runaway Bride team surpassed all expectations, and I had high ones. Even as a planner, I was able to 'let go' with confidence and enjoy the celebration - because of the RAB team. Once I chose ... Read more Runaway Brides, the 8 months of calls, coordination, and decision making became something I looked forward to and had fun with. They took the overwhelm out of the planning process. One of our friends said. “Thank you all for including me in the most uplifting, heartfelt, joyful and transformative event. It was a mesmerizing, immersive and emotional three-day experience, which is rare for most all events and especially weddings.” Attention to detail, organizational skills, budget and vendor management all a 10. RAB went above and beyond to make our vision a reality within the defined budget. Thank you RAB Team!
