Brian and I just got back from cousin Tracy and Jeff’s beautiful destination wedding which was held at Coral Cove Resort in Little Bay, Jamaica. For those of you who haven’t tied the knot yet, I think destination weddings are a brilliant alternative to traditional weddings. You can actually save a lot of money because many resorts will throw you a wedding for FREE!
Couples has a “One Love” package which includes a bouquet for the bride, boutonniere for the groom, wedding cake and sparkling wine toast for up to ten guests, two signature champagne flutes, wedding officiant and marriage certificate, personal wedding planner and on property coordinator, “Just Married” shirts for the bride and groom, and 25-minute couples massage that’s free if you book at least 6 nights at one of their resorts. They don’t cover the $250 government licensing and administrative fee that everyone getting married in Jamaica has to pay, but where else can you get married for a measly $250? Can’t beat that!
If you aren’t quite sold on the idea of a destination wedding, just wait until you see the photos from the wedding this weekend. It’s so beautiful and romantic that I almost booked a vow renewal trip on the spot.

Shoes are optional. 😉
Brian and his mom.
I love how the pink color of the bridesmaids’ dresses contrasts against the beautiful blue sky and sea. The ladies were stunning!
Brian’s dad walked cousin Tracy down the aisle and gave her away. She looked radiant in her wedding gown.
Jeff and cousin Tracy made a handsome couple.
Some post-wedding photos…
Here are some photos of me and Brian and some of the other guests.
Everyone had a great time! I can’t wait for the next destination wedding that Brian and I will be invited to attend. Hmmm… Maybe Pia and JP are next?
