Jane Park is the President and co-owner of Belle Destination Weddings & Events, Inc., a luxury wedding planning and design firm based on the island of Maui. Jane began her event planning career in 2005. After working in the industry for another planning firm, Jane identified a lack of luxury planning & design services in the Hawaii destination event industry. Focusing on this niche, she formed Belle Destination Weddings & Events in 2008.

Undeterred by the bleak state of the economy at the start of the recession, Jane began Belle with one motto, "Do things the right way the first time around", setting up her business to grow successfully. She was joined 2 years later by fellow event designer and business partner, Lena Sebag. With the addition of Lena's talents, the two catapulted Belle Destination Weddings & Events into the company that it is today. With an almost obsessive attention to detail, an emphasis for design, and a "little black book" of some of Hawaii's leading professionals, Belle quickly climbed the ranks of Hawaii's elite event planners. Today, Belle Destination Weddings & Events is one of the most successful planning firms in the industry and was voted one of Hawaii's Fastest 50 growing small businesses for 2015 by Pacific Business News.
