We got engaged in July this summer, shortly after the engagement my fianc© had a horrible motorcycle accident which put him into the intensive care unit for a full month where I was just forced to hold my breath and wait. He miraculously overcame six surgeries and was able to walk out of the hospital 3 month after his accident. As of now he has about a year of rehabilitation and therapy to go through and we knew as soon as he is fully recovered we wanted to celebrate in a HUGE way. We decided on a destination wedding for us and our family because it will be a week long celebration of life together. After everything we have gone through it will be an amazing feeling to relax in paradise with family and friends we love.
Our first trip together was to Jamaica and thats also where we fell in love with the destination and each other. We set the date for April 2014 and pray he will be fully recovered by then
This is a picture of us in Jamaica a few years ago, and there other one is of us now.
Wow! What an amazing story. Both pics are awesome! Since its down the road, you should have no problem getting guests to head there to partake in your celebration- as I'm sure they will want to after the obstacles you have endured together.
While saving money is a big reason for people to have destination weddings- even though yours is different, at the heart of it, your reasons are similar to some brides and grooms- the idea that you want to celebrate with the closest of friends and family-Congratulations on your engagement. You are going to have a phenomenal wedding. Hope your fiance recovers quickly from his injuries!
