Founder of Alpaca Your Bags Travel

Award-Winning Travel Agency Specializing In
All Inclusive Resort Destination Weddings & Celebration Travel

AKA: we make your destination wedding dreams into reality

Hi there! I’m Ashley...

...former advertising-exec-turned-travel agent pro, ready to make your group travel dreams happen.

I like to say that, at Alpaca Your Bags Travel, our name is silly—but our service sure isn’t.

Because I know what happens when service is less than stellar.

Flashback to my own disastrous experience planning my destination wedding

(cue the panic-inducing disaster movie music).

I worked with a travel agent for the first time ever, thinking she would make things easier. I knew that we wanted the easy, breezy experience of an all inclusive resort destination wedding.

Instead, I just got a pile of frustration—she was slow to respond, insisted on mailing and faxing everything (instead of emailing … it’s not the ‘90’s anymore, lady!), and made our guests feel stupid when they reached out with questions.

But the biggest problem was that the whole process felt so cookie cutter. When she sent over our proposal, it was just so clear that she sent the same one to all her clients—nothing we discussed in our planning call together was reflected in the proposal!

She was planning one of the most important days of our lives … and she made me feel like another cog in the wheel.

Luckily, our big day still turned out to be a blast. I loved greeting all our guests with fire dancers, watching my dad race down the resort waterslide with my co-workers, and renting out a catamaran for the whole party.

I just wished I wasn’t so stressed out and sleep deprived leading up to it all (because a bride needs her beauty sleep, ya know?).

That’s exactly why I started Alpaca Your Bags Travel—to give groups an effortless travel experience, from start to finish.

Because group travel can get more complicated than Ikea furniture instructions really fast—talking contracts with the resort, coordinating travel with your guests, figuring out the best packages, flights, excursions, etc.


You shouldn’t have to figure it all out on your own.

When you work with me and my team, you won’t have to. You can expect timely replies to all your Qs, concierge-style service (basically, if you need something, we’ll make it happen), and a personal approach. Because I want your celebration to be anything but cookie cutter.

That’s why I kick things off with a complimentary planning call—let’s get down n’ dirty with the details, talking all about your dream destinations, unique-to-you style, and what kind of memories you want to make with your guests.

So who is Ashley, beyond a love of Alpaca's (and all animals, really)...

  • Loves a good airport lounge
  • Always orders Drink of the Day, whatever it is
  • Checklist Queen
  • Sucker for Dad Jokes + Grammar Puns
  • Lover of kitschy tourist traps and weird roadside attractions... World's biggest sombrero, here we come!

Ashley cared about our happiness and went the extra mile...

Even through a venue change, she shined, making sure we knew the latest information and assured us that everything was going to be alright. Her commitment, professionalism, and enthusiasm were consistent throughout the process which made it so much easier for us. Would go out of my way to recommend her to others"

Destination Wedding in La Romana

I was getting overwhelmed with our honeymoon...

...so I went out on a limb and did a search for travel agents. Somewhere in my searching I saw Alpaca Your Bags Travel and loved the name... that alone lead me to their site.
I talked with Ashley Morris and she ended up being one of the best things I’ve ever discovered online.
From the very beginning she was super easy to talk to, asked all of the right questions and gave valuable input.
Even when there were things that I could have easily done myself she went right ahead and took care of them!
She is amazing and I would recommend her and Alpaca Your Bags to anyone looking for an amazing, stress free experience."

Destination Wedding in Puerto Morels

FYI: The 'alpaca' life isn't for everyone...

I love working with couples who:

  • Value experiences over things
  • Are organized but appreciate the advice of an expert
  • Want your destination wedding to be about quality time, not just a one-day event
  • Understand quality over quantity

I might not be a good fit for you if you:

  • Are more interested in the wedding than beginning a marriage
  • Want to obsess over napkin colors (and if they match the tablecloths, let's focus on the experience, people!)
  • Think its okay to be disrespectful to those in the service industry, not cool
  • Want to DIY to save every last penny
