Keeping up with Shannon Eileen


Who is Shannon Eileen? For starters she is a singer, songwriter, design lover, vintage collector, dreamer and inspiration blogger in Seattle. But her most satisfying role is a bride-to-be. She lives in a little cottage by the sea with her soon to be husband and their black cat. This is her happy place.

I had the great pleasure of working with Shannon to create the perfect honeymoon for her and her fiance Hal to Riviera Mexico & Belize. Originally, they were thinking Bali, Thailand or the Philippines but flights to Asia got to be too expensive. So they switched gears entirely and chose a place closer to home. “We've always had a soft spot for Mexico. The food, the beaches, the food. We've vacationed together in Baja and Mazatlan in the past, so we decided to hit up the Caribbean side and travel along the Riviera Maya coastline down into Belize.”

This year is an especially unique time to visit the Yucatan Peninsula. As you know, it was the Mayans who predicted the "end of the world" on December 21, 2012. We're excited to visit the ancient ruins and learn about the area's fascinating historical and spiritual significance. "We're planning to stop in Playa Del Carmen & Tulum in Mexico and the Cayo District jungle & Placencia seaside in Belize."

Here's the draft honeymoon itinerary & registry.  It was a joy to help her plan dream honeymoon to a special place that has a spiritual meaning to her.  If you wish to follow Shannon Eileen on her journey see her blog or follow her on social media. Check back in the fall when I plan to post a follow up blog about her pending honeymoon adventure to Riviera Maya Mexico and Belize Shannon has promised to share with me her wonderful story and photos.
