I am a Caribbean Bride: Ceshia

Ceshia & Anthony, Jamaica

With the help of wedding planner, Susan Graham, we created our perfect event at Coyaba Beach Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Our forty guests occupied most of the small, boutique resort, so we felt as though we had the entire place to ourselves, which was exactly what I wanted.

The ceremony took place in a beautiful garden near the beach followed by a cocktail hour in the rear garden, and the fantastic reception, with wonderful music and dancing, was held on a dock by the ocean.

I wore a beautiful Amsale gown, and I created custom earrings, necklaces and bracelets using colorful African beads for my bridesmaids to wear.

We thanked our guests with straw-woven gift bags filled with Jamaican goodies of rum, coffee, jerk seasoning, and a handwritten note that Anthony and I wrote.

We had such a wonderful time celebrating with close friends and family!
