From the moment we met in person on the island of Jamaica for a site visit, I knew we were going to have a lot of fun with Karen and Mark.  The best part about planning a destination is being inspired by the beautiful surroundings and we were thrilled that these clients wanted to incorporate aspects of this beautiful tropical location that they loved so much into their wedding.  From the brightly colored tropical flowers to the Caribbean band, pineapple decor and jerk chicken on the menu, we looked to Montego Bay for inspiration throughout this gorgeous affair.  Guests loved their personalized napkins (which were laundered, pressed and handed out at the brunch the next day) and the lemonade drinks that doubled as escort card display.  With rain on the forecast we wrangled a clear top tent to put over the pool cover at the reception's private estate just days before the wedding.  The weather cleared up enough for the outdoor ceremony by the beach and then guests danced the night away protected under a tent with views to the night sky.

"Mark and I have to sincerely thank YOU for everything that you did to make our wedding weekend more extraordinary than we could have ever dreamed!  We completely appreciate the incredible challenge in putting together a three event wedding, in five months, with a confessed know-it-all bride living in NYC, getting married on a Caribbean island. 


We know that there were many elements that had to come together perfectly for the weekend to be such an amazing success, and we know that your team made it happen.  From the invitations to the flowers to the decor to the food to the music to the photography, we could not have hoped for anything more. We loved so much working with you and Lindsay and all of your vendors. 


We cannot stop talking about our wedding with each other and our guests cannot stop telling us that it was the best wedding they have ever experienced. We wanted a celebration to remember and it was an incredible series of unforgettable moments. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
