    As I browse around, I find it incredible how many people are here to help other people and I am amazed..This is a wonderful place to be and I am so happy to be part of it..

    A little bit of information on us...We live in Ontario, Canada and I met the love of my life approximately 3 years ago online after coming out of a hard relationship..I was not looking for love and nor was he but thankfully we found each other...

    A year after dating, we bought a home together and moved in (both previous owned our own by ourselves), 6 months later, he proposed..We have both been previously married (but they don't count) and we have always wanted a destination wedding on the beach with the waves coming in...

    We have booked our wedding at Couples, Swept Away in Jamaica for September 3rd, 2007. We leave August 31, and return September 11th. ...WE are super excited!! Oh yeah, although our families know we are getting married, we have opted not to invite anyone, so its kind of an elopment without the surprise..

    I have been planning this wedding for over a year and have done tons of reasearch on many different resorts both in Jamaica and Carribean so although we are close to 2.5 months away, I would be more than happy to help anyone else, its a give and take, I have been fortunate enough to belong to other forums that have helped me so much and I hope to be able to give this back to someone else..

    I am sure there are still lots of things I will have to finalize and will appreciate as much help as well...So with that said, thank you for allowing me to be part of such a wonderful community forum, I look forward in meeting many of you and helping you any way I can...
