It's been ages since I've been on here and I figured we'd pay you all a visit and catch up with the board!
For those who do not know -- we are of Jamaican heritage. Both of our families are originally from Jamaica and myself and our 2 children are the only ones born here. Since his family cannot travel, we decided to go "home" for our union.
We are getting married at a local church in Runaway Bay and our reception will be at Coyaba Garden in Ochi. We wanted to do as much as we could on our own to minimize extra costs. I will admit, I was late with just about all my milestones for more reasons than one, but the best reason of all was the birth of our 2nd daughter this past July.
Fast forward to today. We sent STD's in Sept, but everyone knows I was still on Maternity leave so people were booking and offering their assistance -- I've got the best fam and friends ever! I'm still sending out formal invitations as we speak! I say hey better late than never -- altho the RSVP date is 1 MARCH!
We recently went to JA on a planning trip. WE GOT LUCKY!!...like I stated before, we were planning to try to do this on our own from the States but we were introduced to a wonderful pair of ladies who are going above AND beyond for us! The initial lady who we contacted, Norma Jarrett works at the party rental place we are renting from in St Ann's Bay. She put us in contact with her good friend, a florist/planner named Charmaine (she works at the floral shop located at half moon) ABSOLUTELY a pleasure working with these two women! They keep us on point and help us cut costs. They are great. Norma's taken our wedding on as if it were her own!
I'm super excited and can't wait to marry my best friend again (we had a civil union early last year when I was preggo with our youngest ladybug).
So how's it going folks?? Aren't these exciting time?????
