Hello, brides! My name is Christine Earls, and I’m the owner of boutique travel agency You and Me by the Sea. Congratulations on your engagement! My passion is curating your ideal travel experience, whether that’s an epic destination wedding or an unforgettable honeymoon. As a travel “concierge” with over 30 years in customer service and a keen eye for detail, my mission is not only to book your arrangements and lodging, but to provide you with a truly personalized itinerary that’s created with your wants, needs, and wildest dreams in mind.

The Wedding Industry

Planning any sort of trip can be stressful, exciting, and overwhelming - all at the same time. Tie that travel into one of the biggest events of your life, and the stress and overwhelm can almost be too much to handle. I focus my services on the wedding industry because your engagement should be a time in your life that you ENJOY. I want to make the process of planning your wedding or honeymoon seamless and fun, so you can sit back and ENJOY every moment, instead of stressing over the details. I love listening to exactly what you envision for your big day, brainstorming ideas and scenarios, and creating a beautiful memory together.

The Wedding Memories

I love hearing about my couples' journeys and what brought them to the beginning of this next chapter in their lives. Some stories have tugged on my heartstrings, and others have made me laugh until I cry. All of the stories are beautifully unique, and that’s one of the things I love the most about my work. A favorite family memory that stands out is my niece Lisa’s wedding. She designed her bouquet to feature lockets with pictures of loved ones who had passed away and kept a special place in her heart: her mother, Nana, Grandmother, and Grandfather. It was a really meaningful way to honor their memories.


You and Me by the Sea specializes in bespoke travel experiences like destination weddings, honeymoons, pre-wedding festivities, and bachelor/bachelorette getaways. My destination specialties include French Polynesia, Hawaii, the Caribbean islands, Mexico, Greece, Italy, Disney vacations and Cruises. Additionally, I’m a Sandals Resort expert, Beaches Resort expert, and a Mexpert!

Company History

I’ve spent almost all of my career in the customer service industry - whether at a global, national, or retail level, providing the best customer care has always been the cornerstone of my professional life. After 30 years of working to improve the customer experience, I decided to combine my years in the corporate sector with a personal passion: my love of travel. It was then that You and Me by the Sea was born. From Hawaiian honeymoons and family Disney trips to Caribbean cruises or even a weekend in New York City, I’ve always been dedicated to finding new and exciting travel experiences!


Q: How much do your services cost? 

For honeymoons, I do not charge a fee. People often have the misconception that it costs extra to use a travel advisor. But by utilizing a travel advisor and asking for their expertise, you are saving needless hours of researching and frustration. Because of the logistics involved, there are fees associated with destination wedding planning, which we discuss during your complementary consultation. I also offer payment plans.

Personal Hobbies

I’ve been a ballroom dancer for over 18 years, and I love learning new choreography and perfecting my technique. Working together with an instructor, and bringing together our creative energies in preparing for a showcase or performance, is such a huge thrill! I’m also currently attending American Sign Language classes, which is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. And I should mention - I’m a huge animal lover! I adore my rescue pup and kitties.

Christine was amazing to work with throughout the entire planning process! She helped us to find the perfect destination spot for our honeymoon! Not only did she help us with choosing the most amazing resort (Sandals Grande St. Lucian in St. Lucia), she also helped us with booking excursions & providing helpful tips! Every time we reached out to Christine, she responded quickly & would always give us a call to chat about any questions we had. She is the best! We cannot thank her enough for helping us plan a truly unforgettable honeymoon! We look forward to using You & Me By the Sea for all our future travel plans!!

Christine and her team made mine and my fiancé’s dream of eloping in Greece come to life. Christine is attentive to details and responds quickly. She found us a wonderful wedding planner in Greece with a beautiful venue, and made the planning experience as smooth as possible with us having to do very little research in the process. She handled any roadblocks with timeliness and professionalism. We had a mix up with one of our room bookings, and she was able to upgrade our hotel room for free. We also had some flight changes that were accommodated with no issues. I highly recommend Christine and her team for any of your travel needs, but especially if you are planning a destination wedding or elopement!

We contacted Christine for our honeymoon to Greece because of her reviews and recommendations in brides of Long Island. Christine worked with our budget and sent us a very detailed itinerary and when we asked for modifications she did what she could to help out! We ended up getting an offer accepted on a house in this process and unfortunately weren’t able to move forward with booking but when we’re ready we will be circling back to you and me by the sea!

Christine was absolutely wonderful! She made things so easy for us. She even booked our excursions. There was no hassle or confusion. I couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon!

I was planning a cruise for 16 people with 5 rooms. We had specific needs that needed to be met, Christine was so helpful. She put up with multiple phone calls in a very short time, multiple room, ship, and date changes. She worked hard to get us the best price we could get with the most perks. She kept in mind what we really wanted and made it happen. All the while being professional, friendly, and super understanding. Would definitely recommend 10/10

After spending countless frustrating hours trying to research places to go for a much needed quick getaway, I gave up and decided to try a travel agent. I belong to a women's business group and went to the list of members and found Christine at You and Me By The Sea Travel. We spoke for about 30 minutes and within 2 days, I booked the exact vacation I had envisioned. Christine listened and got everything right. I have recommended Christine to family and friends-all very satisfied!

Christine has been a pleasure to work with. We knew the type of honeymoon we wanted but she helped us by providing options. Recommend some items, but never pushed us into anything we didn't want. She would happily go do some research and come back. She has many forms of communication and has answered all my concerns, worries, and questions at all hours of the day or the week. I am very grateful that my first experience with a travel agent has been with Christine.

Christine was great! I reached out to her in the summer to plan a dream 2-week honeymoon in French Polynesia. Christine was able to coordinate everything with plenty of time in advance, and most of our communication was spent ironing out some of the fine details and dates regarding the trip. Christine had extremely helpful knowledge and location skills so that we were able to book a perfect trip. We ended up going to 4 different French Polynesian islands over the course of 13 nights. Every hotel welcomed us with plenty of honeymoon amenities and prepared us some of their best rooms available due to how early we put in our honeymoon requests.

Even when dealing with potential concerns, Christine was great. We booked about 5 different excursions during which local guides were to pick us up from our resorts at a given time. The very first excursion (Day 3), no one showed. Through the resort and Christine, I was able to easily rebook the excursion for another day, and got refunded due to the inconvenience. The rest of the excursions took place on time.

Thanks to Christine's help in travel planning, my wife and I had the honeymoon of a lifetime. We've been across the world together, from Thailand to Tel Aviv, and had pretty high expectations for our honeymoon. Our expectations were plenty exceeded thanks to the detailed itineraries Christine put together with us.

My fiancé and I first met Christine at a Bridal Expo at the Garden City Hotel. She was so personable and gave us a TON of great info. We ended up having a phone meeting with her where she helped us navigate the Sandals website and narrow down which resort we want to stay at for our honeymoon. She has been amazing ever since, guiding us to which excursions we want, daily activities, and even flights. Christine has been great with communication and has always been transparent. We highly recommend her as a travel agent for your honeymoon or any vacation!
