Destination Wedding, Honeymoon & LGBT Specialist

Travel leads me to explore how I could share my love of travel and develop a meaningful career. There is nothing I enjoy more than sharing my experiences and expertise and creating amazing memories.

For the past four years, I’ve been sending groups on wonderful vacations to the Caribbean and beyond! I specialize in destination weddings, honeymoons, LGBT travel, and multi generation family vacations. I love the Caribbean Islands, and I have years of experience with destinations, resorts, and activities to recommend.

My forte is planning Destination Weddings and would love to help plan your special day. If you are looking for a traditional wedding or something fun and unique on a beach, I will be working very hard to exceed your expectations, let me help make it happen. If you can dream it, I will work to make it a reality. I can help with any Destination you are interested in, Mexico, Caribbean, Europe, and even in the United States. In addition to planning beautiful weddings, I’m experienced to help you with pre wedding festivities: Bachelor and Bachelorette getaways! IF you are thinking a short or long weekend getaway with a bang, I can make it happen. In addition, I am an expert in planning your dream honeymoon. Whether you dream of zip-lining through the rainforest, exploring the hidden secrets of Italy or relaxing on a white sand beach with a frozen fruity cocktail, I can help you make it possible. Every couple is different and has their own idea of their ideal honeymoon. I love to find those unique locations or specialized itineraries to make your occasion one to remember. When planning LGBT Destination Wedding, honeymoons, or traveling in general can be a bit overwhelming. I have knowledge, experience and am excited to get started planning your dream experience.

For family vacations, I will prepare assist everyone in your group so you all can have an amazing time. I know which resorts are best for families with small children, and I will simplify your itinerary to reduce stress and make traveling with kids easier than ever!I believe finding the perfect vacation begins with building a relationship with my clients, I’m excited to work together to create your next amazing vacation!

Customer Testimonials

Helpful and Professional

Could not have been more helpful, professional and went above and beyond to assure a safe and enjoyable vacation in Belize????
Henry Brightwell

Air Travel

Went in not knowing what to expect. Heather was very patient with me and my questions. She found me exactly what my husband and I needed and explained everything in detail about what to expect and what we were going to need. Told us to call if anything happened or if we needed anything before or while we were on vacation. If the need arises that we need a travel agent for anything I will not hesitate to call upon Heather P. or Travel Leaders again. They were awesome.

My Daugther's All Inclusive Wedding
Heather was very experienced and helpful. In the end when we were facing a ice storm and trying to make it to Cancun for two days to attend my daughter's wedding she went above and beyond to book us new flights to another destination avoiding any delays or cancellations that would have caused us to miss the wedding.

Thank you Heather - you were a live saver. Everything was beautifully handled and the surprises/issues were minimal in regard to how things would have turned out if we had attempted to book this trip by ourselves.

Our 25th Wedding Anniversary Mazatlan Get Away
Heather was awesome to work with! In January, 2015, it was our 25th wedding anniversary and we wanted to celebrate at an all inclusive in Mexico. We reached out to Travel Leaders and were very fortunate and happy to be connected with Heather. She listened to what we wanted our get away to include and she was very thorough in fulfilling our dream trip. We went to Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay All-Inclusive Resort and Spa in Mazatlan, Mexico. It was an unforgettable adventure! Everything was perfect thanks to Heather! In fact, we're working with Heather on putting together our next vacation!
