We will take the stress off your shoulders

Before founding For The Story Vacations, Rachael worked with one of New York City's top wedding planners.

Since Rachael is married to an Irish man, she had two weddings… 7 days apart. One in Ireland, the other in her home town of Kansas City.

Before joining For The Story Vacations, Sarah ran her own wedding and event business (in fact, Rachael trusted her with her own special day). She even owned a bridal boutique. In short, nobody understands weddings better.

With Rachael and Sarah’s combined 15 years in the wedding and bridal industry, you will be in safe, creative, and professional hands: from guiding you on the ideal ceremony site to surrounding you with Europe’s best wedding professionals.
