Meet the Team
— Owner / Editor in Chief / Publisher
Co-founder of Destination Media, LLC, Jennifer Stein started Destination I Do in 2004 out of her own desire to have a wedding away from home and discovering there weren't any media outlets exclusively covering the subject. Her background in publishing and her passion in weddings and travel, created the perfect synergy to start a product like DID. During her time building Destination I Do, she's watched it grow from a small, home-grown product to a brand couples know the minute they start planning their destination weddings or honeymoons.

Having started four different businesses in her career, she's only just getting warmed up.
