    My wedding a Beaches Boscobel was absolutely fantastic!! I couldn't have dreamed for a more perfect day! We traveled to Beaches Boscobel with 20 family members, 8 of them our nieces & nephews (10 and under). Everyone had a great time! The resort was beautiful & the service was amazing! I am not sure why I worried about anything...the motto in Jamaica is "no worry man" and boy do they live by it! Our wedding coordinator was fabulous...she remembered all of the details and we did not have to worry about a thing! I even changed my flowers the day before and they turned out beautiful! If I had to do it all again I wouldn't change a thing!
    Wedding Ceremony - A+ - We had the wedding ceremony at the gazebo (Arizona's) on the sea...it was beautiful, we opted for the sand ceremony & presentation of floral to honor our mothers. My sister sang for the ceremony and they had a great sound system to use!
    Pictures - A+ - Our photographer at the resort did a fantastic job, I am so happy with our photos & we were so lucky to have a beautiful sunset in the background! I would recommend ordering photos on the cd...b/c then they can be downloaded & used however you wish...expensive but totally worth it...pictures/memories last a lifetime!
    Reception - A+ - We had the reception on the sky terrace which also overlooked the sea...they decorated with luminaries & set out the name tags & other favors/decorations I had brought along. We had a steel drum band play for 2-3 hours and it was so much fun...once everyone set foot on the dance floor they didn't leave! The food was amazing...we had appleton rum shrimp, caesar salad & jamaican jerk chicken...for dessert we had our wedding cake & the lovers pineapple baked alaska (definitely recommend as this was everyone's favorite)!!! We also had a separate appetizer table (to my surprise) that was set up before dinner was served which was really nice, especially for the kids! Following the reception we moved the party to the piano bar to continue the celebration! When we returned to our room we were surprised with champagne, chocolate covered treats & our bed decorated with tropical flowers!
    Beaches Boscobel may be the more expensive option...but well worth it...especially if you have family & friends of all ages attending!
    Enjoy the pictures and please let me know if you have any questions...as I know I had many right up to the day before our wedding!
    I am going to post the link to my shutterfly photo book...if this doesn't work let me know and I will just post the pictures!

          Oh wow - what a wonderful wedding. I love the white flower in the hair - I think I need to find me one of those =) Your photos are wonderful too. It's great to see that there are some lovely kid-friendly resorts out there!

                  It was soooo nice of you to share your photos. I am just starting in my planning, and actually don't even have my reservation with Beaches yet. My travel agent won't make the reservations until May since we're not leaving until March 2010 (something about the airfare). Because of this, I can't start working with Beaches on the wedding (they won't do it until I have my room.) Anyway, I just wanted to say that your photo book really calmed some of my nerves. I've been wondering what choices you have for locations, if their flowers look nice, all that good stuff..... and this just made my afternoon. Thanks so much for sharing, and Congrats!!!
