I am a Caribbean Bride: Kristin


Kristin & Greg, Jamaica

As children, Greg and I unknowingly grew up just a few houses apart in Ontario, Canada.

Years later, Greg proposed on stage at a concert by our favorite band− I still cry when I watch it on YouTube!

We knew we wanted a wedding on the beach, and after doing the research ourselves, we decided on Riu Ochos Rios in Jamaica.

The resort provided us a fantastic wedding coordinator, Keisha Adams, and the staff catered to our every wish.

We added personal touches to create an intimate ambiance: I created my own headpiece and we homemade favours and décor for the reception.

Greg and I married on the beach in front of 40 guests on a beautiful, sunny Jamaican day. The event was just as we had imagined: short, sweet and simple.

It was an absolutely incredible experience!
