Jamaica Destination Wedding Planner: Cindy + Matthew

Blush Magazine Cover 2016Destination weddings are a welcome break during our long Canadian winters. Earlier this year we had the honour of travelling to Jamaica with an intimate group of Cindy and Matt’s closest friends and family members.

We suggested holding the wedding festivities off-resort, as this is a great opportunity for guests to see a new part of the island. It also makes the wedding day feel more like a special experience when you travel to a different venue for the wedding day, rather than simply walking down to the beach of the resort.

The historic Rose Hall property was the perfect choice. The ceremony was held on the golf course near the water at Ocean’s Edge. It was a bit windy that day, so perhaps that’s why everyone’s eyes were watering – but more likely it was due to the incredible connection that Cindy and Matt share, which was evident from the moment they saw one another at the altar and pledged their lives to each other.

After the ceremony guests were transported a short distance up to the top of the Rose Hall property where the reception was held. Built in the 1770s, the famous Rose Hall Great House is a mansion in Jamaican Georgian style set high on the hillside with a panorama view over the coast. Cocktails took place under a 150 year-old ficus tree, and a beautiful clear-span tent housed the rest of the evening’s festivities, including a throwback video dance party!

See more of Cindy + Matt’s wedding in the Autumn/Winter 2016 issue of Blush Magazine, and do not miss their incredible highlight film by A Love Story – it’s such a great testament to why you should invest in a wedding video!

Inspiration to Reality: Los Cabos Wedding

A lot goes into the wedding dress design process at JBW. We begin by determining a bride and groom’s wedding style – the look they envision, the atmosphere they want their event to evoke, the level of formality, etc. We then create visual inspiration boards and detailed budgets. Once we’re all on the same page we execute, securing rental and décor items, collaborating with a florist to design centrepieces and bouquets, and working with a stationer to create the couple’s invitations and stationery to perfectly reflect their wedding style.

We’re excited to share some of our 2014 weddings along with the design boards behind them so you can get a glimpse at how we take inspiration and make it reality.

Robyn + Aaron chose Los Cabos as their beach wedding destination. We based their bold beach wedding design on a palette of cool ocean blue, turquoise and nautical navy with soft greys, creams and taupes.

In the Limelight: The Crane Barbados

Considering a destination wedding to a tropical location? How would you like to say your vows on one of the top ten beaches in the world?

I recently vacationed in Barbados with my husband and we absolutely loved it! We spent most of our time at The Crane Residential Resort and it was an amazing place. Here are a couple shots of the resort from our balcony:

I also had the opportunity to meet with the Wedding Coordinator at The Crane and she took me to the various sites on property available to brides and grooms for their wedding ceremonies.

The Beach Wedding

Crane Beach is a stunning stretch of pink sand beach which has been voted ‘One of the top ten beaches in the world’ by Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, and ‘One of the sexiest beaches in the world’  by the Travel Channel. The Beach Wedding backdrop is best suited for a smaller ceremony of 20 guests or less.

The Cliff Pool Wedding Garden

With a surrounding backdrop of four waterfall infinity edge pools, the Cliff Pool Wedding Garden offers a breathtaking panoramic ocean view. Suitable for up to 150 guests.

The Crane Beach Pool Wedding

Located adjacent to The Crane’s Beach Pool featuring classic Doric columns and a captivating view of Crane Beach, this area with its surrounding balcony overlooking the cliff is ideal for an intimate wedding ceremony with your two witnesses.

If you are interested in learning more about a destination wedding to Barbados or another location, I’d love to chat with you about it – perhaps over a lime daiquiri?

Stay warm,

Jennifer
