Accolades: Client Love Letters

As soon as I got engaged I knew I wanted a destination wedding, but had no idea how to start the process. As soon as I finished my initial phone call with PJ I knew I could trust her to help me through the process. 

She was so patient with me as we spent almost 2 months researching every possible destination wedding idea I had. I finally made a decision for a Jamaica wedding and feel I made the absolute best decision for our priorities and budget. 

PJ has helped me build my website, negotiate room rates, and reminds me that wedding planning is actually fun! I know I am asking a lot of my family and friends to go to such lengths to celebrate on my special day but am confident that PJ will make the planning process for them as smooth as possible. 

We had the most amazing time! Everyone was so relaxed and happy. I would not have changed a thing! Rachel - Newport VA.
  I would recommend this agent to my family and friends!


Overall the experience was great. Best shark diving I've ever had! Pamela took care of any concerns we had as they became apparent. We would have her plan another trip for us.  Mike - Boring OR  Bega Island, Fiji.  I would recommend this agent to my family and friends!

Just Married with PJ! Our Family Fiji Destination Wedding was unforgettable with our children. We made this postcard as a thank-you to all our guests! Thanks PJ, you helped create our perfect Fiji Wedding for us! Sarah & Kyle, 2012 Fiji Wedding  I would recommend this agent to my family and friends.

Thanks Pam, for finding the perfect hotel for our week getaway. We were looking forward to spending a week exploring Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Pam found us an upscale hotel, in an exclusive area, at a great value.. Little did we know the incredible treat that Pam had secured for us! Stepping off the plane, we were met by the transportation Pam had arranged and whisked off across town to our hotel. We walked into a very large open room with 20 foot high ceilings that felt like a palace.


With personalized service to match the palatial feeling, we were soon on the veranda in our room. Wow! The view was incredible – beautiful pool, white sandy beach in a private little cove! Our spacious, modern, and very clean room, had an almost perfectly private balcony with a hot tub and hammock overlooking the green jungle, the rocky cliffs, and the Pacific Ocean! By securing us one of the best rooms in the hotel, Pam had turned a balcony into a cozy romantic retreat. Thanks Pam!  Darryl - Draper, UT Aug. 2017 We would recommend this agent to my family and friends!

Pam is very professional and helpful. She has first hand knowledge of many destinations. Pam can help guide you with her knowledge of resorts and personal relationships with people at the resorts. She is very respectful of your budget and helping you have the best value and the best trip. If you are traveling in a group she is an expert. She can plan your party at the resort. She is also fun to work with!  Nancy, Boulder CO  I would recommend this agent to my family and friends!

I needed help for an anniversary trip to show my wife she means so much to me. I'm not good at showing or telling her so I needed an expert to plan something very special. Destination Weddings.travel worked endlessly making me look like her knight in shining armor and we went to Jamaica for our 34th anniversary. Despite lost luggage by the airline, there are things that I know she'll never forget and neither will I. We were upgraded to a honeymoon villa right next to the beach, we're talking huge bubble bath tub, not just some double size. We had a romantic dinner which had roses and a Jamaican saxophonist serenading us during dinner with wine, the beach early in the morning with coffee we had all to ourselves, she loves the beach and picking up shells. One of the biggest surprises was a trip to a concert where we saw and heart Shaggy at a big beach party. I know no one else could have arranged it. PJ's experience made this dream a reality. Now how do I beat our next anniversary? I wouldn't recommend anyone except PJ for planning travel!

PJ helped me and my fiance book our Jamaica honeymoon and was amazing. She walked us thru all the details so we knew what was going on and was super friendly!  St. Helens, OR. May 2019.  I would recommend this agent to my family and friends!

"Pj was superb, detailed, organized and had answers before we asked the question... Our wedding was flawless (Mexico) ... Despite tropical storm BILL that hovered over us the entire time!.... And we often spoke while out of the country that if pj could have done something about this storm she could find a way to do just that!... Lol... All seriousness she was spot on in every way." Hillary & Michelle - destination wedding, Riviera Maya, El Dorado Maroma - June 2015. We would recommend this agent to everyone!

"Thank you for a great Bridal Fair!" Brides and Basketball, NBA Portland Trailblazers!

What ever we need to have worked out, P.J. is on it, even if we make a mistake, she cleans up for us. YEAH!!!  Vivian ​Royal Caribbean Cruise I would recommend this agent to my family, friends and other cruisers!

We found PJ over 13 years ago and she helped us put together a number of trips. Rome - Venice, Costa-Rica, Paris, Panama, and Dominican Republic to name a few. 

The "magic sauce" with PJ is her willingness and desire to tailor a trip and the experiences we have to our likes and dislikes. She is patient and will gracefully endure lots of back and forth to get it perfect. I'm not an easy customer and I expect nothing short of awesome. 

PJ never lets me down and she will take care of you... as long as you let her know what you like and are willing to share in the process of sculpting your trip like a piece of art. PJ has friends in the business all over the world so her recommendations are not just from a website. She knows It is quality when she suggests something.  Jay S. Westland, IN 
 I do recommend this agent to my family and friends.

PJ Ott not only has experience with destination weddings and group travel but has many connections that helped make my dreams come true. As our wedding fairy she truly worked with us to make it our day in every way! ?  Nancy, San Francisco, Cancun Mexico.   I would recommend this agent to my family and friends! 

​Pamela was well informed as to where we were going, what was needed and what had to be shared. She keep us informed of any and all changes. The destination she chose was perfect minuses the heat and rain! We're switching over to her for all our travel. She also created a perfect website for everyone to stay in the know and it helped get more people to join the group. ​Robert J.
​ Royal Caribbean Cruise

I was looking for an agent to book for the Caribbean for our family. This was a formidable task to book multiple flights and hotels for a trip to Grenada and Trinidad especially since I was out of country at the time...but PJ rose to the challenge like a true professional. 

I cannot wait to hire her again to book some more wonderful trips for me! She also took good care of my parents on a cruise in the Orient as well!  Munira, Live Oak, TX

She is such a pleasure to work with!  A great trip to Ireland, definitely an agent for our friends, too. Sadi - Portland, OR.  I would recommend this agent to my family and friends!

Another great vacation thanks to PJ at Wild Side Destinations. This time it was Bangkok Thailand and she set us up with private tours of temples, palaces, ancient city’s and more. She also covered the pickup and return to the airport and kept us feeling safe. I am the customer from “you know where” and PJ still works with me to tailor the experiences like we like them. Jay - Indiana
