  • Working with Runaway Bride Destinations was easy and fun. I don't have a bad thing to say. Kimberly was super responsive, flexible and patient during the entire planning process and the execution was flawless - it made the experience stress-free and a lot of fun. Kimberly has great vendor relationships and is creative and quick to adapt to any changes. Also, SUPER organized. She remembered every email and comment I ever made, which helped bring my vision to life during the 3-day event. I would work with Kimberly and Runaway Bride Destinations again and would recommend her to any friend planning a wedding.

    Awwwww... thank you so much, Natalie! It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Diego. I'm going to miss our daily emails! Stay in touch. xoxo

  • 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 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.... Read more

Many congratulations and all the best for a happily ever after together. xoxo, RAB Team

  • 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 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!

  • We would absolutely recommend Runaway Bride to friends! Kimberly and her team helped us with every detail from beginning to end. My husband and I didn't know where to begin and Kimberly walked us through everything and made it fun and exciting. Her team showed us several amazing and different destinations and helped figure out what made the most sense for us. We had a timeline that kept us on track and Kimberly was always one step ahead making sure we didn't miss a thing. She helped us with everything- figuring out our budget, what feel and style we wanted, how to narrow down our guest list gracefully, she negotiated the contract for our hotel which was quite a challenge... you name it and Kimberly and her team did it! There are just so many more details than either of us could imagine, we truly couldn't have done it without them!

  • Xanath made all of our dreams a reality and went over and beyond to exceed our expectations . Xanath literally took care of everything for Jason and I which gave us the ability to relax and enjoy ourselves at our wedding. It was truly awesome to work with Xanath and Kimberly throughout this whole process, we wish we could get married all over again!

  • Kimberly and Araceli made our wedding the relaxing, fun, carefree event we always hoped for. Throughout the planning process, they were on top of it and really let us enjoy what is normally a stressful part of the process. It was such a relief to rock up to our hotel and have them there prepared with a detailed plan. They took questions from guests and made sure we were left just to enjoy the party. We can't thank them enough for creating what was truly the best day of our lives. The only negative I have to say about the work they do is that you'll probably enjoy it so much you'll want to do it again. ;)

  • Do not think twice. We just returned from our daughter's wedding at Banyan Tree, Riviera Maya, Mexico. With a total of 5 different events, each one was flawless and even exceeded our dreams. Our 200 guests told us they have never experienced anything like it and will never forget it. From the second we hired Kimberly, she worked tirelessly to give us the best advice, negotiate the very best terms with all of our vendors, and produce an indescribable weekend of events. Not only is Kimberly and her crew in Mexico, headed by Xanath Banuelos, knowledgeable and competent, they are warm and empathetic, tireless, funny, and kind. I have been part of the event industry myself for 17 years and am a tough critic. It was the best week of my life. Hire Kimberly and her staff immediately.

    Thanks so much for the kind words, Mona! It was a true pleasure to work with all of you. Thank you so very much for allowing RAB to be part of such a special event. We enjoyed every second of it!!!! Wishing Lacey and Justin a lifetime of happiness together! xoxo

  • The Runaway Bride Team is incredible! I recently had my wedding in Rivera Maya, at Banyan Tree Mayakoba and Kimberly and her team put together the most incredible wedding weekend. There were 5 events throughout the weekend, each one was truly perfect and better than the next. I spoke with Kimberly (and Xanath!) for months. I am from NYC and being so far away from the wedding location can feel confusing at times. No need to ever feel worried or concerned about anything, these ladies are true professionals AND perfectionists. They made sure every single detail was covered and executed in a way that was beyond my expectations. Even though we were planning for months and I knew what was scheduled for the weekend when I actually got to the events I was completely taken back and lost for words at what these amazing girls put together. From the moment we landed in Mexico everything was taken care of. We had 194 guests travel from NYC, Miami, California, & Chicago and there was never a momen... Read more

  • My now husband and I knew what type of wedding we wanted to have, from the country to the location, venue, decor and the vibe. What we did not know was that our wedding dreams were not going to come together easily. At first, we were faced with language barriers, lack of knowledge in terms of vendors, the list kept going while at the same time our heads just started to spin fast and faster.... We knew we needed help! Fortunately, we found Runaway Bride through a mutual friend and without a doubt, Kimberly and her team made our wedding dreams a reality!!!! Runaway Bride (RAB) consistently showed professionalism, extremely fast follow up, attention to detail, and inside wedding knowledge that I could never have thought of (such as backup generators). But most importantly, the RAB team was always personable, kind and understanding to our requests and wishes. And from a bride’s POV, I always felt I was in the best of hands and that the entire RAB team had my back (even when I didn’t kn... Read more

  • I can not truly express in words how much I love Runaway Brides wedding planners! I had a destination wedding in TULUM, Mexico and these ladies did a beyond fantastic job! They helped with everything from searching for destination locations, searching for resorts, finding vendors to fit our needs, entertainment suggestions, etc. They were all very polite, down to earth and professional. I even had some last minute changes that I wanted to make, with only a week before the wedding and they totally took care of it the same day I asked. At no time did I feel panicked because they made me feel relaxed and they had everything under complete control. I highly recommend them!

  • When looking for a planner, I looked at 3 things: the ability to communicate well with me AND with vendors in Mexico, the connection/vibe I felt with the planner, and price. I think RAB checks off all of these boxes. Kimberly is American, but speaks fluent Spanish and has deep connections in Mexico. This was incredibly important to me. Culturally, I needed her to understand me, but I also needed her to be able to communicate with the vendors in Mexico. She really excelled at this. Kimberly and I also really got along- she got me, and I can definitely be difficult as I plan events for a living. Kimberly was able to remain calm during stressful points and was able to resolve issues behind the scenes without having to bring them to my attention. Lastly, I thought I got great value out of using RAB both as it relates to cost of RAB and discounts they received from vendors that were passed onto me.

  • Kim was an amazing addition to our wedding team and really helped make our wedding a top-notch event. We retained her for day of wedding planning but she contributed so much more. I should have hired her earlier and had her plan the whole event. Where Kim really shined was helping us trouble-shoot various vendors who tried to make changes at the last minute. She ran interference and with her experience in the industry was able to demand the service we paid for. Her schedules the day of really helped our event flow smoothly and she and her team were able to "herd cats" to keep everyone where they should be at the appropriate times. There were a lot of details that I never thought about that she covered or made recommendations for handling. I recommend her services to anyone planning a wedding. Worth the money.

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Andy. It was a true pleasure to work with you and Yanet. You definitely win the award for most organized groom ever!! Wishing you both a happily ever after together. xoxo

  • There are no words to express how thankful I am to have met and hired Kim as our wedding planner. I travel a lot for business and Kim handled everything with such a great care and understanding since day 1. I was extremely impressed by the way she was able to handle my mom from the start. She did it in a way that was caring towards her feelings, while being mindful of my wishes. She is a great listener and understood what we wanted at all times. My only recommendation for Kim would be hire an extra person for the day of the wedding because there are lots of things going on that day that it is too much for Kim and one more person to handle everything. However, if I had to do it all over again, I would hire Kim in a heart beat. Kim, thank you again for all your patience, understanding, good judgement and remarkable planning. XOXO

  • Kim and her team are amazing. We were floored by their attention to detail and ability to make our vision come to life. On top of everything, they handled everything from interviewing vendors to the smallest details on the day of our wedding. We could not have been happier with Runaway Bride. We only hope they create a Bar Mitzvah division so we can work with Kim again one day!
