Meet Kimberly Richmond, Global Director of Sales, Destination Weddings by ALHI, combined her passion for event planning and her hotel background by launching Runaway Bride, an international destination wedding planning company. She has been featured in major bridal publications such as Brides and Grace Ormonde Weddings. She is president of the International Association for Destination Wedding Professionals (IADWP) D.C. Area Chapter. A hopeless romantic, she has found her perfect match and is planning her own walk down the aisle. Away from the office, she founded Posh Pets, a full-service, upscale pet-care company that also partners with rescue agencies to find homes for pets.
