James & Tonya - Caribbean Royalty Wedding

This summer I had the pleasure of planning a spectacular wedding for a really great couple.  James & Tonya are smart, funny and a little bit of everything you would want in friends.  Both are doctors and they were taking their boards while planning their wedding, talk about stressful but they were able to pull through it and have a wedding that no one will ever forget.

As you will see, it rained like crazy the day of their wedding which was really disappointing because the grounds at Oheka are so beautiful but even with the rain the grounds looked amazing. It started with a breathtaking venue, Oheka Castle and a wedding day concept that fit their personality perfectly, Caribbean Royalty.  Both the bride's and groom's family are from Jamaica and they wanted to celebrate that. There were also many personal touches that they incorporated to keep their wedding personal and grand at the same time.  The dance group that the bride is apart of did a spectacular performance to introduce the bride and groom.  It set the high energy for the evening and got the guests involved.  The performance was so good, the bride couldn't help but join in herself.  Another personal touch were the pink ribbons and wrist bands in honor of the groom's mother.  All the guests received one and they all wore them.  We also left an empty seat in front of the aisle of the ceremony where the groom placed a bouquet for her.  It was a great way to remember her without making it a sad occasion.  

All in all this wedding was a great time.  The guests danced the night away, the speeches were moving, the ceremony was so beautiful, I was brought to tears.  Just take a look and see for yourself!!  Thanks to Kiss the Bride Films for the wonderful highlight video!
