Destination Wedding

Weddingmoon at The Jewel Dunns River in Ocho Rios Jamaica

After our engagement Eric and I were guilty of dragging our feet with starting any plans for an actual wedding, although we really wanted to be married the thought of so much time, energy, and money going into one day that would mean the same to us regardless of what or where it was just didn’t sit right with either of us!

We tossed around the decision of what state the wedding would be in since half of the family lives in one state while the other half lives in another. We thought about what type of food & music we would like, what season would be best, indoor or outdoor, a guest list but still neither of us could see a clear picture of what we wanted so before we knew it we were talking about a drive thru window in Vegas or heading to the local courthouse.

Somewhere in that mix of uncertainty we started researching destination weddings. It really seemed to be the middle ground for us. We chose Ocho Rios Jamaica for our destination and from the countless emails back and forth plus the simple choose your package format we felt great with The wedding planners and staff at The Jewel Dunn’s River!
