Welcome to Paradise! Your next adventure starts here.

Destination Weddings

From start to finish, I help couples to plan their wedding abroad. I start by getting to know each couple and curating a list of properties to choose from that will meet their list of must-haves. I introduce the couple to the wedding planner and they help plan every detail for the special day. I execute a group contract to lock in rates & multiple room types for your guests to customize their vacation. In addition, I work with all your guest to book their travel plans.

Hillary Ogle, Travel Designer

My love for this job stems from the daily inspiration I receive by making my client’s dream vacation into reality. Throughout the planning process I get to know each traveler and carefully match you with a destination to fit your must-haves. I enjoy planning all types of travel! My personal experience as a past destination wedding bride shapes how I work with couples to plan their special day abroad. I can relate with each step of the planning process. Three words you can count on from me are commitment, sincerity and passion. I am so grateful to work alongside an amazing team at Paradise Weddings and Travel, as well as countless travel partners. I work with personal contacts on property to execute every detail of your stay. These partnerships are a huge reason why my clients return home having had an exceptional vacation experience. It’s my goal to provide excellent customer service, from the first phone call to the day you get home from your vacation.

Jessica Kolz, Groups Coordinator

I started working with Hillary in March, 2019. My passion for adventure and travel has brought me all over the world. In college I spent time exploring parts of South America. After college I took a teaching job in Guatemala for nearly two years. Not only did I get to see all the beautiful parts of Guatemala (Lake Atitlan and Semuc Champey are a MUST), but I also got explore much of Central America.

After my time in Guatemala my love story with my fiance, and soon to be husband, Ross brought me to Ireland for a very romantic proposal. Ross is all about grand gestures. That wedding proposal ultimately connected me to Paradise Weddings and Travel and Hillary! I’ll be a destination wedding bride in October, 2019 at UNICO 20°87° in Mexico. My experience working with Hillary, exploring the world of destination weddings and knowing first-hand how life-giving travel can be, made it a no brainer to join Hillary.

I can’t wait for many more adventures to come and to help all the other travel bugs out there dream up their plans for love, memories and travel.
