Ashley

Puerto Rico Destination Weddings is owned and operated by Ashley Wright, a non-denominational minister who became ordained to perform weddings. She will be your officiant and your point of contact at every step along the way:

In addition to helping couples realize the wedding experiences of their dreams, I am a college professor. I teach business online for UC-Berkeley Extension as well as the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), which enables me to live in Isabela, Puerto Rico.

Born and raised in North Carolina, the ocean has always been an important part of my life. It’s what brought me to Puerto Rico. I love to stand-up paddleboard, surf, kiteboard, and anything else on and around the water. I also practice yoga and meditation and love traveling, cooking, and reading.

I hold a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech, and an M.B.A. in international economics from the University of Chicago. I have extensive corporate management experience that I’m now happy to apply to working with couples and great vendors across Puerto Rico.

In addition, I have extensive community theatre and public speaking experience, ensuring that my voice and the words that you have chosen for your special wedding ceremony will be heard by all.

Whatever your wishes for the wedding ceremony of your dreams, I will work with you to make them come true!

“Ashley was just so awesome and made our day so very special! We really can’t thank her enough! I was worried that having someone marry us that doesn’t really know us would feel impersonal, but she did an amazing job of getting to know us and putting that into our ceremony, she had us all in tears!”

“Ashley was down-to-earth, easy to work with and most of all has a great sense of humor. My husband and I were pretty wishy-washy and last-minute about plans, and luckily Ashley was able to roll with our procrastination – right up to the day of the wedding. When it came to writing and performing our ceremony, she totally nailed it – right down to mentioning our kitties. Our ceremony was personal, meaningful and most of all lead by a warm and charming officiant.”
