Destination Wedding Planning Mentor – Kristin Sullivan

written by


Last week we met our Wedding Mentor Zoe and this week we’re introducing you to our Destination Wedding Planning Mentor based in Florida, Kristin Sullivan.

Kristin’s story is a great one as it’s one I think many of you will be able to relate to.

She fell in love with the idea of being a Destination Wedding Planner after her own destination wedding went horribly wrong.

This set a chain of events into motion and Kristin now has over 20 years experience under her belt. And i use that phrase for a reason…

Recently Kristin launched her very own Wedding Planning Tool Belt called ‘Hip Betty‘ and I’m telling you this baby is amazing.

Everything a wedding planner could want and more.

Never one to be work shy Kristin also fulfilled another dream of hers to marry wedding planning with wellness, excuse the pun, with her Bridal Retreat.

As you can imagine Kristin has a wealth of information and experience to share with our students and she looks after the US, Canada and Caribbean regions.

I’ll let Kristin tell the rest of her story in this short video she created for you but if you’d like to book a time to have an informal chat with her just use this link here to access her calendar.
