  • Amy Vecchione of Aventina Travel and Events is beyond fantastic. She is friendly, calm, competent, and works to make sure your events meet the bride’s (and groom) vision. She takes a concept and works with it until it is perfect. We hired Amy to be our wedding planner/travel consultant for our wedding at The Hard Rock Punta Cana (DR) on September 29, 2018. There were so many different parts going into planning our (absolutely AMAZING) destination wedding, that I could not imagine getting it all done with Amy. Amy helped us secure our room block at the hotel and rooms for our guests. She did all our travel arrangements and was a phone call away for our guests with any questions/concerns about the events and the travel going into our wedding. She went above and beyond for us and we are so appreciative of her. We received a room upgrade upon arrival, all our guests’ arrivals went smoothly, and any accommodations were taken care of. This process was stress free and I was able to enj... Read more

  • We had no idea where we wanted our wedding, I came across Aventina Romance on weddingwire. The first time I called (just to get some general info & prices) Amy spent over an hour on the phone with me. She made it easy and assured me she will guide me through the way. I knew she was the one!!! She was so patience with all my questions via e-mail & numerous phone calls with her. I would definitely recommend Aventina Romance, they were responsible through out the whole planning and after as well!!! Could not ask for a better travel agent & company❤

  • Amy was such a wonderful help to my husband and me with the planning of our honeymoon ! We were unsure of where to even travel to, yet with the guidance and knowledge Amy has, we were able to decide on St. Lucia. During the beginning of the process, she created great mini websites with all the accommodations, dates, and amenities of various resorts, which was AWESOME in helping us decide. Having her allowed us to pack our bags and just go !! We recommend Amy for all of your travel needs.

  • Using Amy from Aventina Travel & Events to help us plan our dream honeymoon was one of the best decisions I have ever made. She took all the stress out of planning a honeymoon and we were left with all the fun parts of making decisions on where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. After our first conversation with Amy she presented us with the most fantastic honeymoon ideas and her presentation of each was amazing. She was very respectful of our budget and because of her we were able to go on the honeymoon of a lifetime to Dubai and the Maldives. I highly recommend using Amy to help plan your next vacation and we look forward to working with her again to help us plan our next adventure!

  • Amy Vecchione was (is) wonderful, she made this process very easy. It was something less for me to worry about with the stress of having a wedding. Made the travel process a breeze, my guest also raved about her as well. She is awesome!

    Nilka, It was a pleasure to help you plan your destination wedding in the Dominican Republic - and to arrange to all the guests accommodations too! Looking forward to working with you again when we plan your belated honeymoon!

  • Amy helped us plan our honeymoon in Thailand and was a huge role in making it a success. She met with us right away to hear what made us choose Thailand, show us sample itineraries and walk us through ideas as well as understand our budget. She made us feel comfortable so we would speak our opinion to make sure we got what we wanted out of the trip. After that meeting, Amy made sure the itinerary was exactly what we were looking for and she answered all our questions. She made sure our hotels were in absolute best locations. Amy is reliable and you can always expect to get a response from her right away. She also offers to help however extra she can; for instance, if its check in for your seats because you might be busy with your rehearsal/wedding night. She is available every step of the way and doesn't check out even when you've left for your honeymoon. She is available during and after to help with any question or issue you might have. When you have lots of ideas and want to plan a ... Read more

  • Amy was fantastic! She stayed in great contact with us through the whole process even while we were there she would send us emails checking in on us. She remembers little details about us that we spoke about at our first meeting and sent items to us with our ticket package that contains some of these items. We will definitely use her again the next time we plan a big vacation!

  • Amy Vecchione of Aventina Travel and Events is in a class by herself. She has lifted wedding planning into a new professional level. She is level headed, calm, competent, and works to make sure the event meets the bride and groom’s vision. She takes a concept and works with it until it is perfect. We hired Amy to be the wedding planner for my daughter’s wedding. There were a lot of moving parts to the wedding. My daughter had just moved to California but the wedding was in the Hudson Valley in New York State. The rehearsal dinner was a big hoe down sponsored by my daughter’s future in-laws and the brunch after the wedding was being hosted by friend of the groom’s family from California. So there were a lot of different events as well as personalities involved. In addition, the space where the wedding was going to take place had “good bones” but needed to be made beautiful but in keeping with the rustic setting and my daughter’s desire not to have a sterile “Ne...

  • My husband and I got married on a tiny island in Belize, and we wouldn't have found it if not for Amy. She listened to what we were looking for (a small, non-traditional wedding in a natural environment), found the absolute ideal place for us, helped us get our friends and families there, and had lots of great advice and ideas about how to make our destination wedding perfect. It was wonderful.

  • Let's just say that without Amy my wedding would have not been a success. We tied the knot in Riviera Maya Mexico in August 2015. She helped us with securing the hotel and rooms for my guests and myself, planning of the ceremony and reception, and all of the travel arrangements. She went above and beyond for us. We were able to get special accommodations, upgrades on rooms, and even my special dietary needs were met. The only thing I would do different is have her their with us for the day of. It would have made things run smoother. I had such minimal stress and was really able to enjoy the vacation part of our trip. Everyone was so happy. You will not regret having Amy at your side.

  • Amy Vecchione really did make our wedding something to cherish all our lives. I would never have expected such an incredible amount of our guests reiterating the same theme, "it was just amazing", we were just left speechless. All her long hours (midnight emails) & hard work paid off for getting a pretty complicated event (Jersey City - Hyatt) to flow so smoothly. Between the rehearsal diner NYC boat cruise, and the Hungarian Violinist pair. Amy, with all her business contacts really did deliver beyond all expectations. We cannot thank her enough, she was a great listener to what we wanted. Thanks so much, Amy.

  • Amy Vecchione of Aventina Events helped us to plan my daughter's wedding this past June. The bride lives on the West Coast and the wedding was at The Oakeside Mansion. Amy helped us secure the venue and was always a resource for everything from flowers to suggestions for personalizing the decor to signature cocktails, etc. She listened to my daughter's and her groom's preferences and always had great suggestions. She was available whenever we needed her and acted as our agent and liaison with Frungillo's Catering, who are the caterers for the Oakeside. We all feel that Amy was a pleasure to work with! She always came through with what we needed and, in particular, went out of her way to secure particular ingredients for cocktails late the night before the wedding when needed. I would work with her again in a minute. After the lovely wedding (despite pouring rain!) we wished we had another party planned at The Oakeside just so we can work with her again.

  • We hired Amy of Aventina Events to coordinate our wedding at the Oakeside Mansion in Bloomfield, NJ, and also to help us plan our honeymoon in Greece. Amy was instrumental in helping us pull off a seamless, beautiful event! I received several comments from friends and family about how the day seemed to go so smoothly. Amy knows Oakeside like the back of her hand, and we really couldn't have pulled off our wedding without her! She was very responsive in the months leading up to the wedding, and met us several times at the venue to discuss details in person. Amy also helped us plan our honeymoon in Greece, which was amazing! All of our hotels were in the absolute best locations, and our travel from island to island was simple and easy. After months of work and wedding-related stress, I was just so happy to relax on our honeymoon and not have to worry about the details because Amy took care of everything. Overall, Amy played a huge role in making our wedding and honeymoon a succes... Read more
