Plan in Paradise Workshop

In Jamaica

Plan in Paradise Workshop

The Plan in Paradise Workshop is an instructor led workshop with full access to destination Jamaica Specialist, Ophellia McKnight.

It is the only curated in-person, specialist led workshop for international destination wedding professionals who focus on luxury, off-resort weddings in Jamaica.

This workshop will provide experiential venue walkthroughs of boutique hotels and luxury villas in Jamaica and introduce you to local wedding professionals who can support your destination wedding execution at the level of your brand.


Before I tell you about this Need-To-Experience-It program, let’s talk about who this is really for.


You are a wedding planner with a goal to incorporate travel and destination weddings into your portfolio and love the proximity of Jamaica for your clients and the ease of getting married there.


Whether you are:

– A seasoned destination wedding planner who wants to book more curated, unique, off-resort venues in Jamaica and need resources on the ground to support you at the level of your brand.
– A new wedding planner who already know that you want to focus on destination weddings and don’t know how to get started.
– A lover of Jamaica who would book all your clients weddings there if you had the right resources and support – heck, you’d even consider remote working from under a palm tree in Negril.


You are in the right place and I’m going to tell you exactly how the Plan in Paradise Workshop will give you the tools, resources and unparalleled support on your journey to amazing wedding celebrations for your clients in Paradise.

By the end of this Workshop, you will have:

– A curated list of off-resort wedding venues available in Jamaica

– Personally toured at least six venues

– Met local wedding professionals who can support you at the level of your brand

– Experienced a mock wedding related event set up

– Experienced excursions you can introduce to your guests

I personally cannot wait to guide you through our 5-day journey in Jamaica!


Showcasing my island home and providing resources for international wedding professionals to make planning in Jamaica easier has been my focus for most of my career and being able to personally lead you through the many and varied off-resort options is a dream come through for me.


I have experienced firsthand how simple it gets to knowledgeably lead my clients through their wedding planning process because of the confidence I have in my knowledge of Jamaica and more than anything, I want to share that with you.


If you are new to destination weddings, a seasoned professional or just looking to add a new niche to
your wedding business to feed your need to travel, you owe it to yourself to take the opportunity to do it at the highest level with the best support that you can find.


To experience first-hand, the anxiety free international planning that comes with doing this in person workshop is a gift you should give yourself.


Should you choose to accept my invitation, I personally guarantee that this Workshop will be completely life changing for your destination wedding planning business.


I look forward to meeting you personally at the Plan in Paradise Workshop in Jamaica!


Details coming soon.

No, we do not. The Workshop is an intensive and we do not want you to be exhausted and changing
properties everyday would be very tedious so we will stay at one property in each area and do site visits
to multiple venues.

No, you do not have to pay for your transfer. Your Workshop fee covers all transfers, accommodations,
meals, and drinks for the duration of your stay.

No. you do not. All meals and drinks are covered. You would just be responsible for souvenirs or
separate food and drinks that you want to add aside from our planned meal when we are out.

We do not offer a refund on this program because of the nature of the trip. All payments have to be
completed prior to attending the Workshop and deposits are made to the hotels and transfer companies
to secure our accommodations and services as soon as we book guests into the program. We do,
however, totally understand that life happens, and we therefore allow participants to do a one-time
transfer of your spot to someone else. We do ask that we assess the person ahead of time to ensure
that they are an equally good fit for the program before accepting the transfer. Please reach out for
additional details if this is applicable to you.
