Our Mission

Which is why you need a planner in your corner—an advocate who puts your needs and vision first, a confidant who you can bounce ideas off of (no matter how out-of-the-box-they might be!), and an honest straight shooter who you trust to tell it like it is.

More than your planner—your partner

It’s simple: To give you the best honeymoon or destination wedding possible. Because this is one travel experience you shouldn’t rush or compromise on.

Hi, I’m Barbara Oliver

I’ve been planning vacations professionally for 18+ years; today, I help couples bring their destination wedding or honeymoon visions to life—while leaving all the planning stress behind. 

My Story

Why Romantic Journeys? There’s something really special about the excitement and optimism of couples just starting their lives together—and I’m honored to play a part in the beginning of a client’s love story.

And when I say “love story,” I want to emphasize the story part—because that’s exactly how I approach your romantic journey! As a former TV writer, I’m adept at weaving a story arc through your travel experience, with a beginning, middle, and end that flows seamlessly together.

And of course, no one else shares your unique love story—which is why I work one-on-one with you to custom-craft your escape. I’ll ask the right questions that bring out both your personalities and deepest dreams, figuring out what makes you both tick, and then reflect that in your itinerary so that your destination wedding or honeymoon will have “you” written all over it (who knew my Bachelor’s in Psychology would come in handy planning romance travel?).

Unlocking the Next Chapter

So wherever this new chapter of your story together takes you, I’d be thrilled to help you write that next page with ease. And who knows? Maybe I’ll be a part of the chapter after that as well (I love it when my clients come back for anniversary trip planning—or share photos of their growing family!).

Ready to de-stress your destination wedding or honeymoon experience? I’m ready to help.

A few of my favorite romantic destinations

Where to next?






Riviera Maya, Mexico



Punta Cana, DR

White sand beaches as far as the eye can see; there are many new resorts giving this destination a modern and fresh feel.

The history, romance, and the variety of experiences you can have there (and the gelato!) make it an ideal honeymoon destination. 

Beyond the beauty and relaxation of this idyllic island nation is the amazingly warm welcome you’ll receive from locals; my hubby described it as getting a “five-day hug”! 

Great pick for honeymoons and destination weddings, with beautiful lush resorts fit for all budgets featuring the Caribbean Sea as a backdrop. 

St. Lucia

Great for the couple that want the exotic feel of Fiji but something closer to home, especially if they’re hosting a destination wedding.
