From Sunglow PhotographySandy and Ryan traveled to Montego Bay Jamaica for a tropical intimate wedding with close friends and family. From their visit the year prior Sandy was set on exchanging their vows under the 18th Century aqueduct ruins located on the Hilton Rose Hall property.

The wedding details were all handled by the staff at the Hilton Hotel — very appealing since planning a destination wedding in a third world country can be challenging.

From Natalie Franke… There aren’t words in the English language that could adequately describe how incredible Hannah and Mark’s wedding truly was! When we arrived at the Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay, I was absolutely blown away by the beauty of this tropical coastline and the rich history that the resort has developed in Jamaica! Add in an exceptional couple like Hannah and Mark and I knew that I was in for the wedding of a lifetime!

From the beach ceremony to the portraits around the resort, I felt like I was constantly having to pick my jaw up off the floor sand! Everything was styled perfectly and Hannah was one of the most beautiful brides that I’ve ever seen! And not only is she gorgeous, but she has such a compassionate heart! When she found her dress at The Brides Project in Ann Arbor (a bridal boutique where all the proceeds go to the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor) she decided to become a volunteer bridal consultant and after working with the organization for a few months was hired to run it! She dedicates her time to helping brides find the perfect gown and raising proceeds for a good cause in the process.

Can’t you see why I fell in love with these two? Ah! Hannah and Mark are an incredible couple and this entire weekend was one for the record books!

From Amy ArringtonKelsey and Kevin were married in beautiful Montego Bay, Jamaica, on April 6, 2013. Their ceremony took place on the beach between two palm trees with the clear Caribbean ocean in the background. To keep with the tropical theme, Kelsey wore a pink hibiscus flower in her hair, and Kevin wore a fun straw hat. One of our favorite details from their wedding was their “save the dates,” which were airline ticket themed. Another favorite detail from their wedding was the parting gifts for the guests, which were monogramed beach towels draped over each one of the chairs.

Rose Hall Jamaica Destination Wedding from Reign 7 Photography

This wedding is pretty much my idea of paradise.  I mean — a destination shindig on the beaches of Jamaica with the ocean breeze blowing as you swap the I Dos? Well, it sounds like heaven. And while I can’t help but be a wee bit envious as the temps here in Boston slowly drop, I think I’ll head over to the gallery from Reign 7 Photography and start my virtual vacation right…now!

From the Bride… Description of our wedding day: Having a destination wedding has its challenges but all of those seemed to subside the day that I woke up knowing I was about to marry the man I had shared the last 9 years of my life with. The weather was great, the sky and the water were a perfect Jamaica blue- which was imperative because the ceremony and reception were scheduled to be outside.

All of our vendors were on time and our appointments went swimmingly. As we were wrapping up pictures pre-ceremony I glanced outside and noticed what looked like a tropical storm forming in the distance. I immediately went into panic mode, looked at my Maids of Honor and said “Im getting Married. Right. Now.” We rushed everyone downstairs and outside, I didn’t realize how fast I was moving, let alone that I was running, until one of my Maids yelled “Where are her shoes?” and the other yelled back “She is wearing them!!!” Our wedding coordinator, Charlene, was amazing and kept saying, “It won’t happen, it can’t happen, not to you and Joe, to anyone but you and Joe!” We did get a bit of a shower but it was, in true Jamaican fashion, about 3 minutes long – just enough to let us know that we can’t control everything and that life, including our marriage, would be a series of surprises and we just need to roll with it.

As I came down the aisle it felt so much more serious than I had anticipated – we are a fun, funny couple and I could see Joe start to get choked up. As if the island read my mind, a gust of wind caught my veil in a neighboring bush and in a moment of total awkwardness, I ripped it off my head while hysterically laughing with my dad. That loosened up the ceremony right away and it just felt more relaxed and more “us”.

Our reception was held on site at the Sugar Mill Falls water park, which I loved. I work for a music company in NYC so the set list was really important to us, I don’t think the DJ had ever received a list of 250 “do not play” songs! But to be fair the “play” list was a lot longer so he had a good amount of material to work with. We danced the night away to Ja Rule, Montell Jordan, Sean Paul and a slew of throwback songs that truly encapsulated our near decade of dating!

Inspiration around the day: Jamaica has always held a very special place in our hearts, it was where we first fell in love almost exactly 9 years prior. But what keeps us coming back are the people, the culture and the warmness the country embodies. It was important for us to use as many local vendors and have as many local accents as possible while adding our own style to our special day.

The special touches that made our day extra lovely: I really liked that we had special pieces of us woven into the day. Representing my old, new, borrowed and blue were…. Old- Pearls from my late Grandmother wrapped around my flowers, New- My Dress, Borrowed- My headband was worn by my close friend, Danielle, in her wedding and she handed it down to me, Blue- I had my married name and our wedding date sewn in blue into the skirt of my dress. Other special touches – I gave Joe an engraved watch that said “Best Day Ever” and he gave me his mother’s engagement ring to have made into anything that I wish.

DIY Projects: I created a lot of the accents for the wedding myself with the help of a slew of Etsy vendors. For all future brides, get a Pinterest board going and an Etsy account ASAP!
