                Thanks everyone. I would say all in all everything went well. We ordered the Royal package but I had my Aunt who lives in Jamaica bake the cake and my Uncle who is a minister there performed the ceremony. We didnt use Michael because a friend of ours who is a amatuer photographer came i our group and he acutally took some amazing shots. I would have to say the best parts were the service and the scenery. Everyone was at your service and you can't beat blue skies and no clouds in sight.

                We only had a couple of problems, one with Skyservice and one with ROR. A lady at the checkin counter told us that we could hang my wife's wedding dress in the plane so we took it out of the box that it was in and discarded the box. However, when we got on the plane they told us that there was no such thing and we had to find space some where in the overhead compartment to stuff the wedding dress into.

                At the ROR they had 4 (thats right 4) weddings on the same day. So when we came for our reception at Mammee Bay it wasnt ready. No tables, no decorations, nothing. However, we I spoke to the restaurant manager, within 5 minutes he had about 4 staff plus himself set up the area. Even the Hotel Manager came to make sure we were 100% happy. In the end we were able to get a few freebies to make up for the inconvenience so it wasnt too bad.

                We werent able to go all out for the wedding and reception because we had to plan a reception back home for another 300 people. But we think what we got was great. Ocho Rios, is great and the ROR is fantastic and I cant say enough about the service. I was really worried about going there but Chandlyn does a great job and making you feel at ease. I guess the best way to sum it up was when my wife went to the salon the day before our wedding to make an appointment but the girl at the front desk said that they were all booked up. Just then the actual hair stylist came out and when my wife told her the situation she said " Never let anyone tell you that we're too busy for you". Pretty much made her day.

                I put a link on here for the pics, but these are from friends that came. Once we receive all of them I will post them soon......
