Jamaica Elegant Weddings and Dawn Sherman are AWESOME

Recommended Posts

First, Dawn Sherman at Jamaica Elegant Weddings is WONDERFUL. Hereâ€s why…


What was supposed to happen:  Fly into Montego Bay (from Seattle) Wednesday night, e-mail Dawn to confirm our appointment with her for the next day, meet with her in the lobby of our hotel in Lucea Thursday at 3:00 (or so I thought) and be married Friday at 2:00 in Negril. Crazy schedule, right?


What actually happened:  Mechanical issues in Miami and sent to Kingston (the other side of Jamaica) Wednesday night, no way to reach Dawn to confirm because I had no internet or cell availability, took a 4 hour shuttle from Kingston to Lucea Thursday afternoon, sat in the lobby waiting for Dawn at 3:00 (remember, I thought we were meeting at 3:00) thought she was a no show (Ugh!) and went back to our room devastated and worn out thinking we may not even have a wedding the next day. By chance, at 5:00 Thursday we went to the lobby and happened to see a pretty, nicely dressed woman looking around for someone. IT WAS DAWN! The meeting was at 5:00, NOT 3:00 and she showed up even though she hadnâ€t heard from us Wednesday as planned and even called the hotel and was told we werenâ€t there. She said to me, “Donâ€t worry. I wasnâ€t leaving this lobby until I found you.â€


“I wasnâ€t leaving this lobby until I found you.â€


Talk about dedication! You have no idea how that made me feel as a bride who had such a stressful time from 3:00am Wednesday in Seattle to 5:00pm Thursday in Lucea. From that point on, Dawn made things a breeze.


Dawn handled all paperwork, offered transportation, offered photography, provided flowers (my requested colors), a champagne toast, the Officiant, a rose petal walkway on the sand, a table decorated with flowers for the document signing, waters for us before the ceremony, held my shoes and purse (for crying out loud!) during the ceremony, acted as a witness, and brought the music. I expected a cheesy c.d. or something, but there was an amazing sax player named Fitz Martin who played a couple of Nat King Cole songs for us. I highly recommend him.


On top of everything else, Dawn e-mailed me less than two weeks after the ceremony saying our certified docs are in the mail already. She even sent me an additional e-mail to wish me a Happy Motherâ€s Day. What a sweet gesture. She is quick to respond to e-mails, makes everything easy and personal, is reasonably (very) priced, and truly seems to enjoy what she does.


I cannot recommend Dawn and Jamaica Elegant Wedding enough. Booking vendors in another country is scary. You wonâ€t regret your decision to hire Dawn – promise!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
