Caroline has been planning destination weddings since 2003 and quickly became the most experienced wedding planner in the country.  At the time, there were no other competitors to speak of, and only a year or two later did other wedding planners begin to appear on the scene.  Since the beginning, Caroline has specialized in destination weddings in France and Italy for American, British, Canadian and Australian couples.
