Lisa Wright

Managing Director
I started working with Air Transat back in 1998 and have loved everything travel and tourism since. Having touched all sides of operations from the airline, to destination management, I settled in Playa del Carmen in 2007. After selling travel for many years, I saw the need for experts that focus on destination weddings and Hola Weddings was born. My goal is to make destination wedding planning easy, by offering clear and honest information and guiding couples towards their dream destination wedding based on their group size, budget and vision. I am a legally certified Canadian travel agent with an OPC licence from Quebec.

Why do I love my job?
I get to help my couples at some of the happiest moments of their lives, and be a small part of some of the biggest decisions they’ll ever make. Love is fun and exciting, to be able to be surrounded by that is an honour.
What do I like best about Destination Weddings?
I love the fact that in addition to the main event, you are creating a vacation experience for your loved ones where they have the chance to experience another culture, an amazing adventure, and make their own memories that will last a lifetime.
When I’m not working, you can find me….
If you can even find me not working…I am at the futbol (soccer) field with my son, running errands (real life) or checking out a hotel for the weekend.
The kind of clients I tend to work with…
Anyone fun. There’s no reason you can’t take the business side of what we are doing deadly seriously…while at the same time not taking yourself too seriously.
What hotels do I love selling?
Hmmmm. This is not about what I love selling (although I do have favorites). This is about the right property for my couple.
Why am I the right agent to guide you with your big event?
Because planning is wedding is stressful enough as it is. Plus, I have a slew of contacts and am very resourceful!
Why am I the right agent to help your group?
I have an incredible team behind me that will make the impossible seem effortless. Coordinating travel for groups is what we excel at!
