Dream Weddings in Paradise is a full-service destination wedding planner offering complete wedding planning, consulting and day-of coordinating. Whether your event is large or small, located in Hawaii, California, The Caribbean, Mexico, or somewhere else, count on us to create a spectacular day that is uniquely yours.
I have had the privilege on three separate occasions of using Colleen to successfully orchestrate spectacular company Christmas events (2010/2011/2012). Each one had a different venue and Colleen with her wonderful team handled everything with ease. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and (as always) raved about how much fun they had. Colleen has an incredible talent for organizing events with attention to every detail. Add this to her business acumen and marketing background and you have a real winner in the event planning arena. I highly recommend her for your next personal or corporate event!
I want to give my highest recommendation to the team at Dream Weddings In Paradise. We had the perfect wedding, with our large family, in a beautiful countryside setting in San Diego, California. My family is from New York and his is from San Diego so it would have been hard for me to pull it all together with our crazy work schedules but Colleen stepped in and handled it all for us, culminating in a wedding that all of our guests raved about for weeks afterwards. She really listened to our wants and desires and executed them flawlessly. Thank you Colleen and Dream Weddings!

Planning an event in Hawaii from Virginia was becoming overwhelming and almost impossible. Colleen took the lead on everything. After listening to the style and vision I had for my event, she located a private venue, which ended up being beyond beautiful and perfect for my event with 25 out of town guests. Every last detail from the beautiful elegant décor, to the lighting, the music, the food, to the flowers (the Leis were gorgeous) were very unique and inspired by Colleen. She was able to capture the intended theme and tie in elements that I considered important. My event went flawlessly and my guests, and I were able to just enjoy the afternoon and evening! Colleen was a delight and is very professional and goes above and beyond. I recommend her to everybody!

Colleen was the perfect wedding planner. Her confidence, knowledge, and friendliness put us at ease and we immediately knew we were in good hands. We found out very fast just how much we really needed help. Colleen had an outstanding ability to truly understand the type of wedding we desired, and was able to offer invaluable experience and guidance to help make it a reality. Colleen is genuine, thoughtful and sincerely cares. It’s hard to imagine how we would ever had managed without her. She skillfully kept all the various aspects of the wedding planning on schedule and well organized, anticipated upcoming hurdles, while at the same time projecting a sense of calm. She also paid great attention to detail, and knew the particular aspects we especially cared about on the day of wedding. Even though we were both nervous about getting married, we were able to relax and thoroughly enjoy our wedding – Thank you Colleen!

Colleen and her team were amazing! Choosing Colleen as my wedding planner was the best thing I ever did. I watched my friend at her wedding struggle without a planner and that is when I decided my day would be different. So glad I chose Colleen. She made the entire experience relaxing and stress free. Colleen was very responsive to my emails and calls and has wonderful very creative ideas. She was on top of every little thing and knew exactly what to do at what point in the process, while planning our wedding months before, and on the day of the event. From handling all our wants and still staying inside of our budget to coordinating the photographer, caterer, florist, videographer, etc and recommending the best of the best suppliers, the entire process was seamless. Colleen really went out of her way for us and above and beyond our expectations. We would definitely recommend her for your wedding or a special event. You will be glad you chose Colleen. The expertise really showed when we needed it most.

Everything was wonderful, from start to finish. I would definitely recommend Colleen. Quality of service was 5 star. She was responsive with 24 hours or so (and sometimes sooner) to all of our emails and calls, She was professional and friendly, had great ideas for us, and was very accommodating to my changes that I had to make to add additional guests part way through the planning – what a gem! We had a perfect day and it was thanks to having Colleen behind the scenes! Thank you!
