DENVER, CO (June 3, 2014) — Exclusive Resorts®, the nation’s premier destination club, today announced its newest strategic partnership with Jung Lee, owner and creative-director of the New York event-design firm Fete and Jung Lee NY – her eponymous retail shop for entertaining – as its first-ever Style Ambassador.
As Style Ambassador for Exclusive Resorts, Jung Lee will leverage her seasoned expertise as a traveler and event planner of lavish weddings and parties, into a series of once-in-a-lifetime milestone celebrations and travel packages across the elite Club’s 300+ multimillion-dollar villas in 75 destinations.
The collaboration between Jung Lee and Exclusive Resorts will commence on June 1, 2014 – just in time for traditional wedding season – with the launch of a Bride-to-Be Weekend package in New York City. The weekend invites recently engaged brides and their bridal party to indulge in four days of wedding planning including private one-on-one consultations with Lee, appointments with her preferred industry experts across bridal ateliers, cake masters, photographers and access to her team of acclaimed planning and wedding registry services*. From destination weddings to intimate dinner parties and vow renewal celebrations, the custom travel package guides brides-to-be through every step of the engagement process.
“More than 70% of Exclusive Resorts travelers celebrate milestone events each year while on vacation with us–including weddings, graduations and birthdays,” says Todd Harris, Senior Vice President of Hospitality and Member Services at Exclusive Resorts. “Our new partnership with Jung Lee will bring these celebrations and events to life for our guests in a way that most people only dream about.”
Much like Exclusive Resorts’ relationship-based service, Lee is also known for approaching every event individually, with custom details and creative ideas designed for each individual client. From destination weddings and bride-to-be weekends to intimate dinner parties and anniversary celebrations, Lee and Exclusive Resorts ensure that every milestone celebration is exactly how you – and only you – dreamed it would be.
“I always say that I wish I had this type of inspiration and individual service available to me when I got married,” says Lee, of the new Bride-to-Be Weekend. “We have reinvented the way couples look at their wedding experience, as well as the elements that go along with their new life together, such as building a wedding registry specific to their entertaining and lifestyle at home. I am so excited to partner with Exclusive Resorts so that we can help their guests and our loyal customers navigate through the overwhelming decisions that accompany wedding planning. Our Bride-to-Be weekend combines the very best in luxury accommodations and service with the resources for an informative and inspiring foray into the wedding planning process.”
As the first partnership of its kind for Exclusive Resorts, guests of Jung Lee’s Bride-to-Be weekend will enjoy access to the Club’s private two-bedroom apartments in New York City complete with dedicated on-site concierge and sweeping views of midtown.
