Dori Giffin

Destination Wedding & Romance Travel Specialist


I just wanted to say I wouldn't have been able to plan my dream wedding if it wasn't for Dori. She always kept me calm, cool, collected every time I needed it. Even when we had the unthinkable happen and lost one of our suitcases, Dori got right on it and we got it the next day. Not only was she down to earth, reliable, and consistent , she made me and my husband laugh whenever we needed it. Dori you are amazing and you are truly the best at what you do. - Bonnie and Ramnik Brah

Dori was bit by the travel bug at a very early age and with 35+ countries stamped in her passport, her next destination was always in sight before ever landing back home. She has been active in the travel industry since the early '90s, constantly innovating with the changing travel trends. Dori is an expert in luxury travel and destination weddings.
