Last week, I had the pleasure of both planning and attending Mel and Will’s destination wedding in Jamaica. They wanted something authentically Jamaican and very laid back. They used the gorgeous, natural backdrop of the Caribbean sea for their beachside ceremony in Negril, Jamaica. Traditional black cake (rum cake) was served to the guests following the ceremony. Huge red hibiscus flowers from the garden were used on the cake as well as her beautiful bouquet of tropical flowers.
Guests were then taken to a surprise location at a private cove along the beautiful 7 mile beach in Negril Jamaica. An authentic Jamaican dinner was served featuring such food as festival, rice and Peas, jerk chicken and lobster that was caught that morning. Red stripe and rum punch was flowing as the guests watched one of Negril’s famous sunsets. The Over-takers mento band and Leslie had the guests dancing throughout the evening.
