My fiancé and I are getting married April 4th at the Now Jade resort. Our travel agent, Amy Wood in Calgary, has been absolutely amazing. I don’t usually send emails like this but I feel the need to let you know how great she has been. I have heard horror stories and have personally experienced horrible service with other travel agents for weddings down south, to the point I didn’t want to get married outside of Canada. Amy has completely changed our perspective and has gone above and beyond in every way. Our resort wasn’t easy to deal with initially and I know my fiancé and I weren’t either. We have family coming from all over Canada and the US, Amy has made sure everyone was taken care of and happy. I will absolutely recommend your company, and Amy, to anyone looking to get married down south. She’s been so pleasant, timely, and compassionate. She is simply amazing!

Kind regards,
Gina & Kyle

The service was quick and friendly and the booking process very easy. Amy was our first agent before she went on mat leave and she was amazing, she was super fast with getting back to me when ever I had a question and when she left, Tonie was our agent and she was the same way. The service was excellent. Very stress free and answered all of my questions no matter how small they were. I could not have asked for a better experience. The on-sight weddding service was amazing, our wedding planner was fantastic and the wedding exceeded our expectations.

We just wanted to send you a big THANK YOU for everything you did to assist us for our wedding. You were such a great help to us and I kept hearing over & over from all of our guests that you dealt with, how helpful you were. You left a very positive impression on us all!

The resort was beautiful and we had a pretty perfect wedding week. Definately recommend this resort – the staff was so friendly and Emma (our coordinator) did a fabulous job with all the little extras. Our ceremony location couldn’t have been more perfect and was decorated very beautifully. The dance we had on the sand was SO fun and beautiful the way they had it setup for us. I could go on and on as everything exceeded my expectations. I have attached a few pics for you.

Thank you again SO much!
