Romantic and International Destination Wedding in Jamaica
Alright, I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for romance. So when I hear a romantic story like the way Nadia and Nasson got together, I can’t help but feeling it’s super sweet. The two have been dating across the seas for a while now – Nadia in Toronto, and Nasson in London. They wanted to celebrate their big day with family and friends in a beautiful place. But rather than choose Toronto or London, they decided to plan a destination wedding in Jamaica.
Not only is Montego Bay an incredibly gorgeous place to get married, but also where their families are originally from. A meaningful AND beautiful destination location. And a perfect setting for a romantic, family-filled occasion. Scroll down to see some of the highlights of their celebration, or click here to read more about their unique wedding.
I’ve mentioned it before, but destination weddings are AWESOME. Whether they are across the country, or across the world, I always get excited about shooting these special days. They are small and intimate, but are usually filled with fantastic details and personal touches. I think the best part about destination weddings is all the time that the bride, groom and attendants get to spend with their closest friends and family. It makes it not just a special day, but a special time for everyone and creates lifelong memories.
That was certainly true for Nadia and Nasson’s day. They had friends and family fly in from around the world for their celebration. Days before and after the wedding were spent by the pool, sharing meals, exploring the beauty of the island and tons of meaningful talks and laughter together. The culminating moment of their time together was witnessing Nadia and Nasson take their vows and start the first chapter of their life together. So beautiful, and such a happy time for everyone.
I had such a great time in Jamaica with the wedding party, guests and family. Everyone was super welcoming and sweet, and by the time I left, I felt like one of the family. I jumped on a plane and started editing their photos almost immediately because I was so excited about seeing their gorgeous day with the fantastic setting of Jamaica.
I think they were pretty pleased too. Here are some kind words that Nadia left me when I delivered their photos:
“We were absolutely gobsmacked. We could not believe not only the quality of the picture, but everything you managed to capture. Your attention to details is absolutely amazing. There are too many beautiful picture to choose from. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!”
Thank you all for the awesome opportunity together in Jamaica!
