Destination Wedding Specialists

Sharon Kopp
Founder and Owner, Destination Wedding Specialist

After returning from her own destination wedding in Punta Cana, Sharon started Barefoot Bridal because destination wedding brides know other destination wedding brides best. Knowing how important not only the wedding day, but the entire trip is to the couple and their guests is what sets Sharon and Barefoot Bridal apart from other travel agents. 

Sharon got married with a sunrise ceremony at Huracan Cafe decorated by the famous Mayte Mari herself. Her guests stayed at Paradisus Palma Real. She minimooned at Breathless Punta Cana and Honeymooned in Maui, Kauai, and Oahu in Hawaii.

Prior even to planning her own destination wedding, Stephanie has always had interest in traveling and weddings. Stephanie has a passion for planning events and for all things wedding related. After her wedding in Mexico, Stephanie knew she wanted to help other brides with their most important day, and the best way to combine all of her passions was to join Barefoot Bridal as a Destination Wedding Specialist, specializing in weddings in Mexico, a place that holds special meaning in her heart. 

Stephanie got married at NOW Sapphire Riviera Cancun in Puerto Morelos, Mexico where she stayed with all of her guests and honeymooned at Secrets Playa Mujeres.

Candice  of Designs by CM Events
Wedding Planner specializing in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, Mexico and other areas of the Caribbean.

We are excited to announce our partnership with Candice of Designs by CM Events to handle all your wedding planning, coordination, and decorating needs!

Candice is not your typical destination wedding planner and designer; she work with brides who want a destination wedding experience that stands apart from the rest.

Being a destination bride herself and her own planner, she understands how planning a wedding or special event from another country can be a stressful task. The search for the perfect location and trustworthy vendors is stressful for every bride, but factor in the distance, the language barriers, and delayed replies to your emails and planning a destination wedding can start to feel overwhelming!

Candice's number one priority is to take all the logistical and design aspects off your plate, and put you as the bride back in control of your vision! You can depend on her to make your planning process stress-free, and she will make sure your day, details and decor is uniquely special.

Groups Specialist

Carrie had her own little destination wedding in Kona, Hawaii in 2008, and while it was small and relatively easy to "throw together," she understands how stressful any wedding planning can be and loves to be able to take some of that stress away from Barefoot Brides. She has an extensive background in customer service from 15 years in the retail industry and Human Resources, making her an excellent addition to the Barefoot Bridal family, and a favorite among brides and their guests.
