Why did you choose to have a destination wedding?
When my honey and I started dating, he'd told me that if we ever got married, it would be in Jamaica...so, after he put a ring on it...I started planning!!!
Why did you choose your location?
Torry and I visit Jamaica every Fall so we're very familiar with the island's hotel offerings. I chose Iberostar Rosehall Beach resort because it afforded our guests luxury accommodations, great food and the opportunity to experience the island's premier resort.
Our colors were purple, platinum, black and white which just so happen to be the colors of my honey's favorite NFL team (shout out to the B'more Ravens). Our theme was sea life including shells, starfish and sea lions. I also incorporated my honey's love of paisley and my love of Scrabble into our stationery suite and decor.
Every wedding is special in its own right. What made your wedding unique?
This was a second wedding for my honey and I but the first time around, my father didn't give me away so this time, I was determined to have "Daddy" walk me down the aisle, which he did. At almost 40 years old, I felt like his little girl all over again. Walking arm and arm with my Dad ranks among the most defining moments of my life.
The other thing that made our wedding special was that I DIY'd everything from invitations to decor. It seemed the more I got into planning, the more my "inner-Martha Stewart" took over.
One of the major challenges of putting together a destination wedding is finding and working with your ideal vendors from afar. What wedding vendors did you use to put together this spectacular wedding?
