  • Kimberley and her fabulous team were simply beyond...beyond professional, beyond knowledgeable, beyond comforting (especially on the big day), beyond organized, beyond passionate and beyond a doubt, worth every penny! They were involved in every step of our wedding planning from hotel selection (Banyan Tree Mayakoba), our pre-planning visits, budget keeping, decor, vendor relationships and everything in between. They were a firm yet fair liason between us and the vendors and helped negotiate reasonable contracts...their intricate knowledge of the hotel and region allowed for us to really trust their suggestions, as it was quite evident that they have long standing and valuable relationships with all of the right people in the business. This team of ladies is dynamic, organized and just an overall pleasure to work with-they each bring a distinct skill set to the team which really allows for a well rounded and thorough planning experience. Their taste level is top notch and they just... Read more

    Lorin, we cannot thank you enough for allowing RAB to be part of your special day. It was an honor and a pleasure to join you on this magical journey for the past year. We're thrilled to know that we exceeded your expectations and we would LOVE to help you and Satoru renew your vows. Lots of love from the RAB team. xoxo

  • Kimberly Richmond is absolutely world class!!! We had our dream wedding in Playa del Carmen in May, 2016 and could not have been happier with our wedding reception. From the moment I had my first conversation with Kimberly, my stress dissolved away, and I knew that my fiance and I were in the best hands. Kimberly "gets it" - she listens to your vision, is reassuring and kind, has great taste and incredible relationships with the best vendors, and she gets the job done. I'm sure there were so many things happening behind the scenes that I never knew about, and that is most amazing part of it all....she makes the wedding planning process appear seamless. Because I knew that Kimberly and her team had everything covered, I had the luxury of actually being able to enjoy my wedding day from start to finish...imagine that! After having such an amazing experience with Runaway Bride, my advice to all future brides out there is to get the best planner that you can afford - you will not... Read more

  • Kimberly and the Runaway Bride team is absolutely incredible. Beginning with our wedding venue selection trip in Mexico the team was there from the start. We toured about 10 venues in 2 days and I couldn't imagine a better team to guide us through our decision making process. Their patience and constant upbeat and positive attitude made the best first impression and we knew we were in good hands from there on out. Kimberly was incredible negotiating with the vendors and venue to make sure we were getting the most for our budget. She knew exactly what to ask for and how to ask for it, something I had no idea how to tackle on my own! A few months later we headed down to Mexico for our pre-planning trip where the team coordinated every single detail, including having all the vendors come to us at the resort! We felt so special that entire weekend and knew that this was only a preview to what we already knew would be a fairytale wedding. After countless phone calls, emails and Skype confer... Read more

    Thank you so much for your amazing words, Carolina. We truly enjoyed every second of the planning process with you and Mike and are so happy to have been part of such a special occasion. We miss our bi-weekly calls and daily emails with you. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!!! xoxo

  • We absolutely loved our experience with RAB! They were a team of rockstars and were crucial to our wedding planning process. Kim stayed on top of our vendors and budget, which was incredibly helpful. And Ary is a total rockstar. She introduced us to the most talented vendors from the beautiful design and flowers to a killer DJ and live music, everything and everyone was on point. They truly made our vision come to life. Not to mention they are lovely people, so charismatic and positive throughout all of it. We felt like we were in good hands the entire time and never had doubt, which through the stress of it all was so key to feeling at ease. I am in the PR and events industry in Chicago so attention to detail and execution are very important to me. They went above and beyond. And our guests were blown away by the details and creativity put into each aspect of the weekend. We are forever grateful for all their hard work and dedication throughout this process and during our wedding wee... Read more

  • Kimberly and the RAB team are the best of the best. I am a bride from New York City and got married in the Riviera Maya, Mexico and had the most wonderful experience working with Kimberly's team. From the moment we started working together, the RAB team was knowledgeable, warm and helpful! We are so grateful for all their hard work, dedication and creativity leading up to our wedding and during our wedding week. We really cannot thank the team enough for making sure our vision came to life. Kimberly's team is thoughtful, organized and professional - you really can't go wrong. The team takes care of everything from soup to nuts through weekly calls, emails, mood boards and their very flexible schedules. We were not in the same city as the RAB team, but felt like we had their full attention during the year and a half planning our wedding. The team is professional, has great relationships with vendors and their execution is flawless! We always felt like we were able to collaborate and bou... Read more

  • 5 stars isn’t enough from Kimberly and her team. Wedding planning and the day of is stressful but they walked us through the entire process seamlessly. They were professional, gave honest opinions of vendor selection and were always available. Planning our wedding from the states in Mexico seemed like a daunting task but Kimberly, Ary and Alessio made it better than we could have imagined. The resort was difficult to work with and made a lot of errors but Runaway bride was always there to pick up the pieces and never let us know all of the issues that were present. They always said yes to our requests and made it happen. The day of our wedding we had to change everything last minute due to weather but the team already has a number of backup plans that I was so excited about. Our wedding day was amazing and it would have never been the wedding of our dreams without this team. If you are thinking you might not need a planner, like I did, please think twice. I would have payed Kim and t... Read more

  • Runaway bride is a great company! Kim took care of everything throughout the planning processes, so we could just relax and enjoy being engaged, the creative part of planning, and the wedding day. In addition her negotiating saved us on cost, so adding her services were overall beneficial to the budget.

  • Our wedding in Tulum was not only the best wedding and reception that we had ever been to, but it was the best that most of our guests had been to as well! We are both avid travelers and wanted to do something different and more off-the-beaten path. Kimberly and her team worked with us to create a truly unique experience that our guests are still raving about. Runaway Bride went above and beyond to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams, even though we had a smaller budget and a type-A groom. :) Having an event in Tulum can be challenging due to the fact that they are off the grid, and the RAB team worked tirelessly to make sure everything came together better than we ever dreamed. From recommending spectacular vendors - our guests are still raving about Dulce - or managing difficult ones, we were always comforted to have them on our side looking out for us. Ary and Alessio were wonderful to work with on the ground in Mexico and such a pleasure to spend time with - we were truly h... Read more

  • I can't believe it's been nearly 7 months since our 4-day wedding event in Mexico - I had the most fun there than I have ever had in my life. We had been working with RAB for 18 months to coordinate everything. They were there and organized every event - dinner on Wednesday an Thursday evening, Friday sandwich bar, Friday sunset catamaran cruise and dinner, Saturday brunch and the wedding itself. They organized with the caterers, audio visual people, and decorated for many of the event (every meal for GORGEOUS - Arianna make everything look amazing!). They help the guys plan a jet skiing bachelor part and helped plan other activities and events that occurred even before the wedding weekend started. They were available to us 24-7 and helped us with anything and everything that we needed. They found the most amazing place for us and our group (there were about 80 people who stayed here and anywhere from 100 to 125 people came in for each event) to stay - it was a grouping of gorgeous pri...

  • I cannot write a review that does the job Runaway Bride did for us justice. Being New Yorkers who are used to getting anything we want when we want it there was a fear that anyone we hired wouldn't live up. Our goal was to not really think about the wedding, show up, have a fantastic time with our friends, and get married. Kimberly was fantastic in every facet of planning our marriage. She interfaced with the venues, suggested vendors (every single one was top notch), organized the rehearsal dinner and transportation, managed the drama, ran the entire weekend's festivities, and absolutely crushed it. She is a professional in every sense of the word. Impeccable taste, always well prepared, fluent in Spanish, extremely organized, and well informed are what you can expect with her. Really we cannot be happier with the job she did as we let her run with everything and had 0 doubt that things were getting done and getting done well. Her and the team (Ariana and Alessio are amazing) went con... Read more

  • I cannot stress this enough- hands down the BEST wedding planner ever. I couldn't have been more at ease with this entire process. Kimberly is a total rockstar and she has a fabulous team that helps her as well. I'm quite picky and hands on, yet she knew exactly how to make me feel comfortable. All the details were covered. Not only is she worth every penny, but I would go thru this all over again the same way if I knew I had her by my side. Love her! Meeting her was the best gift I was given.

  • Kimberly helped plan our beautiful wedding in Cuernavaca, Mexico in April of 2008. It was so helpful to have someone who is so knowledgeable not only in detailed wedding planning (cake, music, photography, flowers, site selection, etc.) but also someone bilingual who could easily communicate with everyone involved in the process. I felt like she was able to fully explain the details of exactly what we wanted so everything was perfect for our special day. She was also great at keeping things within our budget but still very tasteful and elegant. One of my favorite things was how she planned activities for our guests on the day before the event so everyone got to know each other prior to the wedding. She really helped reduce the stress of planning things from the very beginning and it was a blessing to have someone available that I trusted to make decisions so I could relax and enjoy the BIG day! I would highly recommend her to plan your event. Thank you for everything Kimberly!

  • I found Runaway Bride just about the time I was ready to give up on my destination wedding in Mexico. The resort's wedding planner was unorganized and inefficient and I wasn't sure how all the pieces would come together. Kimberly Richmond and her team came in and immediately changed the experience of planning my wedding. Kimberly was dependable and attentive, and the end result was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I cannot thank Runaway Bride enough for their contributions to our special day.

  • We had our wedding in the Riveria Maya Mexico in March 2014. I hired Kimberly Richmond owner of RBDW and I had the most perfectly planned wedding. To this day everyone continues to tell me that my wedding was the best wedding they have ever went to and this is a direct consequence of all the hard work and meticulous planning by RBDW that allowed me to be a carefree bride and truly enjoy every moment of my wedding experience. Kimberly went above and beyond in every respect, handled every headache so I didn't have to worry about it and was the best friend you want planning your wedding. I absolutely could not have imagined my wedding to be more perfect.

  • Kimberly and her team at Runaway Bride Destination Weddings were beyond fantastic. I selected her because I liked that she had experience both in corporate events (past career) and wedding planning. That combination made me confident that she and her team would be able to cater to my wishes, while also remaining professional and extremely organized. Right from the start she was fun, informative and relaxed. I knew I was in safe hands, and that she would help me to achieve the wedding of my dreams with minimal stress. She had no ego, and really listened and understood what I wanted. She and her team had an uncanny ability to take my Pinterest boards, ideas and descriptions and create events that not only met my expectations, but often surpassed what I thought was possible. I had so much confidence in Kimberly and her team that I completely signed off the week of the wedding and let her call all of the last minute shots (so I could enjoy the wedding) and she did not disappoint. She mad... Read more
