We had the most awesome honeymoon thanks to Judy. We originally had planned on a destination wedding and started working with Judy on this, but our wedding plans changed due to some family members inability to travel long distances. Judy was extremely understanding and still continued working with us on honeymoon plans. We had no idea where we wanted to go. I'm sure this was frustrating for Judy, but if so, she never let on. Lol. She remained professional and provided us several options until we decided on what turned out to be a great honeymoon location. I don't think we could have found as good a place for the deal that she put together on our own. There is no way we can express how grateful we are. Judy listened to our desires, answered our questions, responded in a timely manner and genuinely cared about our needs and wants. She went the extra mile for us and I assume this is her normal business practice. It was a pleasure working with her.

Judy Hack is just a very special girl. She goes above and beyond to make your trip just what you would hope for.

I am very pleased to share that I, personally, have been doing business with you for over 25 years. Years ago she was the exclusive travel agent in my previous job and she never disappointed my boss, who was a very fussy traveler. My husband and I were wanting to plan a special trip to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We told her what we wanted to do and she made it happen! From the hotel stay at the Paris in Las Vegas, the trip to the Hoover Dam, the helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon and all the shows. Everything was well planned and we enjoyed all of it! Her efforts made everything we wanted to do just the perfect trip for a special celebration. We were unfamiliar with Las Vegas but it all fell into place, she is very organized and it was so easy to just go and do it - all reservations were set up and waiting for us to experience. We highly recommend Judy to make your dreams come true; we are so thankful we used her services. It was a joy to do business with her even after all these years!

Hi there. My name is Heran Eyob. My husband Gabriel Assefa and I got married at the Iberostar Bavaro Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic on July 29th, 2005. Ever since we got engaged we were indecisive between a traditional wedding and a destination wedding. But the amount of money we would have saved on a destination wedding was huge so we decided to go with it.

Judy Hack helped us choose a resort that has excellent service. Since we had over one hundred people attending, we really needed her constant attention to plan their travel arrangements as well as find the best family packages possible. Judy was able to find and arrange a travel package suited for our guests that were coming from the States as well as Europe and Africa. We really are grateful for all the work and effort she has put in our destination wedding.

Our wedding was such a success; even friends and family that attended our wedding said that they would consider using the services of [Judy Hack]. We loved the resort and Punta Cana was an amazing paradise.

Thanks Judy for making our wedding very special.

Judy has been our travel agent and friend for many years. She has helped us with several vacation trips. I tend to be a "do it yourself" person but when I finish figuring out what we want Judy fine tunes it, makes reservations and has found upgrades for a lower price. Her travel knowledge is a great asset. Judy takes care of any questions or changes that occur with the travel plans. She has helped us arrange several Disney World trips and two Disney cruises. Last year we had the pleasure of taking a 15-day Disney cruise to Hawaii. Judy took care of the many questions and options we had. Without her expertise we would have been in a suite with a veranda that had a blocked view. We are proud to have Judy as our friend and agent.

Judy helped my family put together a travel package for our trip to Yellowstone and then on to Seattle. Her time, energy and attention to detail was very helpful to us as we don't travel much. I would highly recommend Judy for your next excursion!

Judy's knowledge and service is invaluable and trying to put the advantage of having her help is tough to put into words, but I'm going to try! In today's world of websites and commercials it is easy to think one can easily plan travel with no hassles. However, Judy's Journeys is a great example of just how important it is to have a professional helping with travel planning. With so much time and money at stake Judy's knowledge turned out to be a necessity in regards to making sure the vacation was worthy of it's own commercial. Extensive knowledge aside, just the experience of working and interacting with Judy was enough to make sure I keep going back to her.

Hello, my name is Crystal Yannuzzi and I am from Baltimore, Maryland. My husband and I got tired of going to the same old church weddings and decided that we wanted to do something fun and unique for our wedding. We have always had a love for Key West, Florida so we decided to have our wedding there.

I began the planning alone only to find myself overwhelmed and decided that I needed help. So, I started searching for a wedding coordinator in the area to help out with the travel arrangements and wedding planning. To my dismay I could find very few that had experience with destination weddings, and the few that I found were very costly. That's when I found DestinationWeddings.com.

At first I was leery about putting a deposit down for an online wedding service that I had little knowledge of, but because the website stated that the deposit was refundable I took a chance and paid it anyway to start my wedding website. That was the best chance I ever took.

DestinationWeddings.com put me in contact with the greatest wedding travel agent ever, Mrs. Judy Hack. Judy stayed by my side to hold my hand every step of the way, even after the honeymoon was over! She helped me locate an even more beautiful location than Key West, in Riviera Maya Mexico, and saved both me and my guests money. Thanks to her, 35 of my closest friends and family got to watch me get married, and enjoy the luxury of an all-inclusive resort, in one of the most beautiful places in Mexico.

The wedding turned out to be unbelievable. The flowers on the beach were gorgeous, the water sparkled, and the pictures turned out perfect! A friend of mine said, "If I didn't know the people in those pictures then I would think they were fake!"

Happy Customers

I don't even know how to express in words my gratitude for all your help. Everything was PERFECT from beginning to end at the Ocean Coral and Turquesa in Puerto Morelos. It was honestly better than I even dreamed. The travel, transfers, hotel, service, staff ... and especially Ana ... were incredible. Each event was awesome and went off without a hitch. Every single person was beyond happy and had an incredible time. I will treasure the memories of the experience forever, and I know everyone else will too.

I would be MORE than happy to talk to any of your brides about the hotel and Ana. I would highly recommend both beyond a doubt. Ana was so sweet, accommodating, and every detail was impeccable.

Thank you again a million times!!!!! I look forward to keeping in touch :)

After attending a destination wedding in Ocho Rios, Jamaica in 2007, Brian and I knew that we wanted to have a destination wedding of our own. When we got engaged, we immediately thought of wedding coordinator Judy H. Judy had handled our friends' wedding and had done a fantastic job; we knew we could trust her with our special day as well.

Judy patiently and knowledgeably handled all our questions, helping us to choose a suitable location and a resort that was within our budget. We finally settled on the Club hotel RIU Negril in Negril, Jamaica. And we were NOT disappointed! The resort and wedding were absolutely wonderful. The facilities were beautiful, the staff was remarkable, and the locals were beyond friendly. It was the perfect blend of casual and exotic.

In addition to serving as our personal travel agent and managing the travel of our friends and family, Judy helped us sort out the details of the wedding with resort's on-site coordinator. With the help of Judy and the on-site coordinator, everything was handled perfectly. The resort took care of all details of the wedding -- the flowers, a live steel-drum band, the officiant, the reception-dinner, etc. We even rented the disco with a bartender and DJ after dinner to give it a real reception feel! The resort managed everything expertly. Over 30 adults made the trip to Negril to be there for our special day! Thanks, Judy! Our wedding was absolutely perfect!

Thank you so much for recommending the Iberostar Del Mar!! Pictures surely did not do justice to the resort. The landscaping and foliage was absolutely beautiful, not to mention the flamingos and peacocks. We had a total of 72 guests and we must say that they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We packed gift bags for our guests and could hardly deliver them to their rooms because they were out and about at the beach, pool or on day trips. We were so happy that they enjoyed themselves.

As for the ceremony, we practiced on Thursday evening at the gazebo and it went fantastic, even though we just could not see how Reyna and her staff could accommodate the number of chairs we required. However, let us say that Reyna and the Iberostar people know their jobs and made the gazebo area look like it was made just for our wedding! Everything turned out better than we could have possibly hoped for, and when Carleen came down the aisle I knew it was perfect. You can see from the picture how beautiful she was.

The reception went off without a hitch as we enjoyed each other and danced the night away. We actually had numerous people tell us that it was the most beautiful wedding that they had been to.
Our honeymoon was also another lifelong remembrance and experience. The room was gorgeous and we took the time to do massages, day trips to Xel-ha, Tulum and Cancun. We even had a romantic candle light dinner on the beach. The honeymoon was so enjoyable that we stayed an extra day, leaving on Friday instead of Thursday.

Again, our many thanks to you - you did a most wonderful job coordinating trips for our guests and recommending both the Iberostar and El Dorado - as we would not have known where to start without you. You have our heartfelt gratitude!!

Carleen and Steven

We had an unbelievable wedding. The fact that we were able to get 40 of our closest family and friends down to Mexico to celebrate our wedding was fantastic. But we not only celebrated on the day of the wedding, we were able to enjoy the company of our guests for 3 days at the beautiful El Dorado Resort as well.

The wedding coordinators helped to take care of all of the details before the day of the wedding, so that I (the stressed out bride) could enjoy my friends and family and enjoy the special weekend. They were such a tremendous help. On the day of the wedding they helped to coordinate all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen with ease. The chapel was decorated gorgeously and they were able to close down one of the restaurants to host our reception. I cried so hard at the end of the evening because I didn't want it to end.

One of the biggest reasons that our wedding was such a huge success was because of our choice in destinations. Judy Hack did an amazing job finding the perfect resort to accommodate our vision. We told her we wanted an all-inclusive resort, adults-only with a chapel on site, and of course something that would be affordable to our guests. She helped to point us in the right direction. Thanks Judy!!
We have wonderful memories and great pictures to help us revisit that special weekend for years to come.

Alana and Bryan Adamson

Thank you so much for everything you've done for us. Everything turned out absolutely perfect! Our wedding at Iberostar Paraiso Maya turned out even better than we imagined. The resort itself was wonderful and a lot of fun for us and our family. It was the perfect suggestion for our wedding destination. Our honeymoon resort, Secrets Excellence, was absolutely outstanding, too. The food, the staff, just everything was fantastic. We both felt like royalty at both resorts and would recommend both resorts to anybody.

You did a wonderful job helping us choose our resorts! Throughout the planning process you also helped ease my mind too. Working with you was great and we will recommend you to anyone who is planning a destination wedding in the future. Thank you so much for helping us plan the perfect wedding!

Judy and I meet a few years back when I DJ a destination wedding in Cancun Mexico that she coordinated. Ever since then, we have connected a few times in regards to destination weddings. Every encounter has been better than the last one. She is very professional, her time management is impeccable and most importantly, she has a way of making a difficult situation seems easy. In my line of work, I have meet with a lot of coordinators but she stood on top of the platform all alone. I have great deal of respect for her and suggest her to anyone who is looking to do a destination wedding.
