You could say I live and breathe travel.
Since starting DWD in 2015, I’ve been able to help over 350 couples and families plan their weddings, honeymoons and experiences to over 20 different countries. I’m committed to creating unforgettable memories and experiences for my clients all over the world without the stress and overwhelm that can come with planning a trip. I have big goals for DWD, and can't wait to watch them unfold.
When I’m not traveling around scoping out the latest destinations and helping my clients plan their dream trip, I can be found in Waco, Texas with my husband and boy/girl twins.
Curious to learn more about how I can help you?
You see, I actually never stepped foot on a plane until I was 26 years old. Travel always felt like it was something that was out of reach for me. Or just simply, not an option. But as I got older, I sought out different experiences to learn and grow and before I knew it, I was looking to go even further than my state’s borderlines.
The first place on the list for me? New York City.
Need I say more?
My urge to go was so strong but the idea of going to a place I’d never been to before, trying to figure out where to stay, what to do and everything in between not only felt daunting but also scary.
I kept looking for resources, tips, anything that would help ease my search. Although I felt anxious by the number of options to choose from, it was soon apparent that this was my gift—creating itineraries that got the best “bang for my time,” and therefore the best bang for my buck.
After that trip to NYC with my mom, that was it. My eyes opened up to a whole new world that was right in front of me. Over the years, I continued to take advantage of my vacation days in my corporate job as much as possible, plan family trips, and help out friends with itinerary suggestions. It wasn’t long after that when they started telling me I should become a travel agent.
At the time, I had worked in retail for 7 years and in higher education for another 7. I truly wasn’t happy in my job and I knew I didn’t want to continue working for someone else. I developed such a passion for travel and I truly enjoyed helping others experience new places, too. That was when I decided to become an expert travel designer and devote my life’s work to mothering my twins and what truly lights me up: travel.
I received my certifications to become a travel designer and I founded Discovereighng With Dana Travel & Destination Weddings. Since then, I’ve been able to help hundreds of couples and families travel all over the world. When it comes to working with me, it’s more than just ticking items off a list. I’m committed to forging deeper connections and relationships with you whether you’re looking for support planning your destination wedding, romantic getaway or honeymoon—I’m with you every step of the way.
