It’s not everyday you meet the love of your life while on vacation in Jamaica, but for this beautiful duo, it totally happened. So when it came time to choose a locale perfect for saying “I do,” Secrets Wild Orchid Resort Montego Bay was IT. Think breathtaking scenery meets sandy, seaside nuptials meets dancing the night away in the place where their love first began. Tracey Jazmin captured every crazy gorgeous moment and THE VAULT is proving that fairytales really DO exist.
From Tracey Jazmin… Ben and Steph’s wedding took place at the Secrets Wild Orchid Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica and was one of the most emotional weddings I’ve ever been to. From love notes, to handwritten vows, to a sweet father daughter first look and some heart wrenching first dances, I assure you that even my waterproof mascara was gone that day.
But tropical Jamaica wasn’t just any place for Ben and Steph; it was where they first met! Both taking a much needed vacation, Ben from Ottawa and Steph from Chicago, their paths crossed and then started their journey to forever so seemingly so Jamaica was the perfect place for them to tie the knot!
The events continued with a hilarious and incredibly welcoming family and group of friends that were sure to make Ben and Steph’s wedding one to remember. Before the evening bonfire, dancing and yoga battles started one of Steph’s best friends, was even challenged by the bartender to a Mai Tai chugging contest.
Opting for a quick day after session the following evening, we spent our last hour of daylight taking advantage of the beautiful grounds and all the resort had to offer until the sun had finally set behind the hills.
