People first, business second!

When it comes to planning a wedding, it can be an incredibly stressful time, especially a destination wedding! Marsha has been nothing but helpful throughout the entire process from start to finish and if there is a better person you can have on your team that will answer your call at 6am in a different time zone, she is your person. Throughout the process, we were able to research different resorts and we finalized on Dreams Tulum. We know when travelling with a huge group of people, logistically speaking, there will be no way everything falls in line, but this experience came close. What sealed the deal was that Marsha and her team were constantly on the clock, ensuring all the guests had the greatest experience. With over two decades of experience, there’s no other industry titan you want in your back pocket. She is the most experienced one on the market and I would highly recommend her. People first and business second is what I gathered. No matter the hiccup or error that was completely unrelated to her planning (mainly airlines and resort), she jumped on the matter right away and resolved everything immediately.

If you have the chance to do the wedding planner services with Harumi, you must go for it. I couldn’t believe it, but we planned everything out in 90 days. I guarantee you will have a person on demand who serves your vision and needs relentlessly. We had so many backs and forth with vendors and I couldn’t imagine doing this without her help! She listens, acknowledges, and provides multiple solutions and always looks out for the bride and groom first. You’ll need her there for the travel services because wow, that is worth a million words.

If you’re looking for a travel wedding agent, we have done our research in and out and with so many moving parts and factors, you want someone that has done it all. This team will go on to create many more experiences and I truly hope you get the chance to cross paths with them when it comes to yours.

Best experience ever!


"We had the absolute pleasure of dealing with Marsha and Harumi to help us plan our destination wedding. Marsha went above and beyond for our group, making sure everything was perfect and as stress free as possible for us to enjoy our special day. Harumi helped us coordinate every last detail with ease for our wedding day. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and made things exciting and stress free.

We could not be more grateful for all the support we received from this team! "

Friendly, Communicative, and Professional

Marsha was fantastic to work with. She was personable, communicative, and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. She did a great job arranging our travel plans and taking care of all of our guests. Harumi planned our wedding arrangements and did a great job. She was friendly, organized, and made great recommendations for vendors, and generally. She also helped plan and organize excursions and activities for the entire week. We could not have achieved such a beautiful, well-planned, and fun time for us and all our guests without Marsha and Harumi.

Wedding Planning Services Were Amazing - Travel Services Could Be Improved

TRAVEL AGENCY: Marsha did a great job helping us find a beautiful resort within our budget for our wedding in Cancun. Another perk was that we received complimentary upgrades to our airplane seats and hotel room as the bride and groom and had the potential to receive additional free travel and accommodations if we had a certain number of guests book through her services. Marsha and her team were always responsive when communicating with us (bride and groom). She also began the preliminary wedding planning process with us and outlined the resort wedding packages with us.
Where we felt the service had room for improvement is the communication and responsiveness with our guests. We had multiple guests say that they had a hard time getting a response in a timely manner. We also had guests tell us that they received tickets and refunds for our other guests. Lastly, we were stressed out the week prior to our departure when we received the seating manifest in which a majority of our guests were not sitting beside the people they were rooming with. To Masha's credit, this was resolved in the next couple of days, but it was an additional stress we had to deal with.

WEDDING PLANNING: Harumi started the wedding planning process 9 months prior to our wedding day. She was always on top of getting us quotes, speaking to and finding vendors, and coordinating with the resort on our behalf. Bringing Harumi with you to your destination wedding is an absolute must. Throughout the whole process, she was extremely responsive, accommodating, and worked tirelessly to ensure that our wedding was coordinated and that all our guests were happy (We had a couple of guests who were not happy with their rooms and she made sure they got new rooms, she coordinated excursions, looked into any resort issues, made reservations). She is very caring and detail-oriented and did everything she could to make our time as easy as possible. If you are on the fence about having her come with you, we would 100% recommend you bring her as we found she was such a valuable resource and a great person to have making sure everything about your destination wedding runs as smoothly as possible.

I know from our long association that Marsha Steeves is a passionate, super devoted lifelong master of the travel industry. She keeps as personally involved as possible with all her clients with active itineraries and doesn't rest until she knows that everything is perfect. She takes tremendous satisfaction and pride hearing appreciation and praise feedback from her travelers after their trips. I can see it takes a great deal of diligence and dealing with the unexpected to keep everything running well and as planned.

Recently, I researched and planned a stay at a Club Med, for another family and mine, and then called upon Ms Steeves to place the booking. She took it on herself to dig around and negotiated an upgrade to the new deluxe waterfront rooms, at almost no extra charge, and what a difference that made to making our stay so great. The other family was unable to travel due to sickness and she helped get the full refund no problem.

We were once stranded abroad on a trip with our return tickets on Pan Am the week the company went belly up. A few phone calls back home to Marsha [on her personal 24/7 cell phone], and the alternate arrangements quickly fell into place to get home. These are the types of things a good travel agent can do that makes a real difference.

I have made multiple bookings over the past few decades with her agency and never a problem. I would strongly recommend and I will continue to use Ms. Steeves services for my travel and vacations. Disclaimer: Please note that specific wedding arrangements services has not been one of their services I have had occasion to use.

We booked Maraha to help us plan our wedding in England where we now live . We got married in ancient Saxon church , it was stunning ! Parts of the original building date back to early 12th century . Our photographer was very talented but just starting up his business so he did all our wedding photos and attended for the entire day for £200 plus travel expenses !! And our photos looked amazing ! We had a lovely 3 course meal for around 75 people . We had a large reception at a local venue that was quaint but charming about 250 attended in the evening . The reception featured ballon displays arrange in beautiful arches and displays as well as an exploding balloon that went off at the end of the first dance . We also had a sumptuous 3 tier vanilla sponge cake with vivid blue hydrangeas trailing down and around it . Was a lovely day and Marsha was there to oversee it all and make sure everything ran smoothly and efficiently / would recommend her services to anyone enquiring .

The Perfect Wedding!

Grand Sunset Princess, Mayan Riviera, Mexico

“My husband and I decided on a destination wedding in May 2011. We chose a travel agent who specialized in weddings to help us make the arrangements, due to our busy schedules and lack of knowledge when it came to wedding destinations and weddings as a whole. Despite that we live in Alberta, we wanted to utilize a knowledgable travel agent; someone who we could trust and rely on for our big day.

We provided our travel agent, Marsha Steeves, with our vision, our budget and preferred dates. She made a few suggestions based on our criteria and the final destination was selected: The Grand Sunset Princess Resort. It was an amazing, well kept, massive and classy resort. We couldn’t have been more pleased.

We opted for her wedding planning service and she arranged everything right down to the table decorations. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. It took all the stress away from planning a wedding. All we had to do was sit back and pick options sent to us.

Marsha provided us with typed up itineraries planned down to the minute; the welcome dinner was arranged and personalized signs were set up; my bridesmaids and I all had hair, nail and makeup appointments scheduled and of course, served with champagne.

The ceremony was held in a romantic gazebo right on the beach with the water as the backdrop; the cocktail hour and reception went without a glitch….and we lucked out with fantastic weather.

It was the perfect wedding due to her organization and attention to detail. If we had to do it again, we wouldn’t change a thing.

Thank you so much Marsha Steeves Destination Weddings,
Chris & Sonia

Mexico Wedding

Marsha and Harumi were amazing and made our day and the whole trip super special. From helping us to select the hotel, organizing travel and accommodation for all our guests, to all the planning of our special day. We were very lucky to have them by our side to assist and advise on each decision. They have a wealth of knowledge on wedding planning, especially destination weddings, that was invaluable. I couldn't recommend them more.

Successful destination wedding!

We enjoyed our experience with Marsha! We booked a destination wedding to Los Cabos for about 50 guests and the process was overall smooth. Some communication hiccups between Marsha and sone of our guests, and the communication could have been a bit more seamless (we had multiple e-mail chains going at once) but in the end, Marsha got the job done and we had an unforgettable wedding! Thank you so much!

April 25,2022 - secrets playa Mujeres Golf and Spa Resort



We are so happy we chose Marsha and Harumi for our special day. It was one of the best and easiest decisions we made throughout our entire wedding planning.

Marsha: I had a lot of guests coming from different parts of the world and Marsha dealt with them seamlessly and without an issue. She made the travel portion so easy. She also made the airport check in process very special as she sought to all my and my guests needs.

Harumi: we couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner. She made not only my wedding special but the entire week of festivities run so smoothly. She became and confidant, a friend, a shoulder to lean on through hard times and a gracious host to all my guests. She made our day even more special. You cannot go wrong with having her as your wedding planner.
