I am a Caribbean Bride: Hellen

Caribbean Bride Hellen

Hellen & Patrick, Jamaica

Patrick planned a bike ride the day he proposed that led us to a bench where we first talked about getting married.

He gently sat me down on the bench, bent on one knee, slipped the ring on my finger and proposed…it was perfect!

I wore a beautiful Mori Lee gown for our barefoot ceremony on the beach at Riu in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. A steel band played “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton as I walked down the aisle.

Our photographer took us to a gorgeous local waterfall close to Dunn’s River to take pictures and also to the beach to capture us at sunset.

We had exactly the wedding we envisioned—a fun, intimate celebration in a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere!
