The Love Story
About five years back Kimberly and Alan met on OkCupid. After both swiping right, they began a fun fling of dates that eventually led to love.
The Planning Experience
After Alan popped the question in Kingston, Jamaica it was a no-brainer that they wanted a destination wedding. Kimberly had always dreamed of a more intimate celebration that would take place in the Caribbean due to her roots, but was unsure about having it in Jamaica. Alan insisted that he wanted Jamaica to not only be special to her, but to them (*swoon*), so naturally Kimberly could not resist. By working closely with their Certified Destination Wedding Specialist they were able to choose the perfect resort for them, which happened to be Iberostar Selection Rose Hall Suites, due to their lovely accommodations, friendly staff, and super attentive day of coordinators.
Kimberly & Alan's ceremony was "unplugged" which allowed for everyone to be in the moment and have a much more intimate experience. The destination wedding was filled with sweet and fun moments alike. They read a special poem together during the ceremony, had a choreographed slow dance, and Kim was able to make a toast to her mother. The reception was kicked off with a 1-minute performance to "Git Up" by their wedding party and they continued to dance the night away. In true Jamaica fashion, they made their promises together with an authentic "yah man". It was perfect!
The pair described their wedding as magical, unforgettable, and amazing. There were so many wonderful things that they loved about it, especially the quality time that they were able to spend in paradise with their guests. They were even sad when their honeymoon started because it meant that everyone was leaving! Overall they had such an incredible destination wedding experience in Montego Bay, Jamaica, they even plan on returning for their one-year anniversary
Advice For Future Couples
