I Am Your Best Resource for a Relaxed Destination Wedding Experience!

Do you envision your wedding as a toes-in-the-sand and ocean breeze in your hair occasion surrounded by your closest friends and family? An event where you can enjoy the time with loved ones for longer than a quick hug during your wedding reception? 

Your destination wedding can be a week long celebration of dining, snorkeling, beaching, and adventuring that guests will talk about for years to come. Does this sound like your dream wedding but don’t know where to start? Let me help walk you through the entire process! 

Awarded Nine "Best of the Best" Industry Accolades

Not Sure Where to Start?

  • How do you manage your busy life, wedding planning, and answering all of your guests travel questions?
  • What destination and resort is the best match for you and your guests?  
  • What if the resort sells out and not all of your guests have rooms? 
  •  How will you keep your guests informed about the resort, destination, and wedding events timeline? 

Planning your destination wedding may sound overwhelming because the world is a large place to scout for the perfect location! That is where I come in. I began to specialize in Destination Weddings after my own beach destination wedding fifteen years ago. While I loved planning my wedding; and adored my amazing fiancé, the process was exhausting.  

Your Destination Wedding can be a laid back experience where the planning will not consume your life for the next year! My goal is to bridge the gap between you and the resort wedding planners, who typically do not contact you until a few months before your wedding.  

I get to know who you are and your travel style in order to tailor my recommendations to your vision. I consider myself a matchmaker and will use my expertise to connect you with the destination and resort that fits the needs of your family and guests; as well as the vision of your special day. Consider me your right hand woman!

Client Raves & Reviews

Kristi with Explore Your World Vacations was such a delight to work with! Not only did she help us find the perfect location for our wedding but our honeymoon experience was one we will never forget, thanks to her recommendations and guidance. Each place that we stayed at was amazing for different reasons. What a great, rounded experience. Know you're in good hands! – Greg & Tiffany, Costa Rica

Kristi helped us plan our destination wedding in Cabo and it was amazing! She worked directly with the hotel with all the preparation for the wedding which, honestly, was a god send for a bride planning a wedding far away! Kristi also came with us to Cabo to help with all the wedding details including music, food, flowers, and all the ceremony and reception details. She also helped us and our friends and family with all the travel needs and activities! Thank you Kristi, for making our dream wedding for us, as well as our family and friends, a dream come true! - Chris & Candice, Mexico

Kristi Zalesky is a fantastic travel agent. She hooked us up wherever we went with the best travel accommodations and service beyond our expectations. Management at each hotel treated us like royalty and gave us extra special touches because of Kristi's efforts. We were so surprised and touched by the wedding photo of us that she arranged (in our room). Our honeymoon was the trip of a lifetime and we could not have done it without Kristi. – David & Madeleine, Hawaii
