I am a Caribbean Bride: Lindsey


Lindsey & Matt, Jamaica

Matt and I went to High School together and even dated briefly before he shipped off to the Marines while I was still in school. Five years later we ran into one another randomly and dated once again.

Twelve years after Matt invited me to Homecoming on our first date, he surprised me with an incredibly sweet and thoughtful proposal by taking me back to the same spot—at that moment, everything came full circle.

We chose the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa in Lucea, Jamaica for our wedding because we wanted a location that was both convenient and affordable for our friends and family. Instead of a unity candle, we tied together a cord of three strands to form a special unity cord that symbolized the strength of our bond.

Cliché or not, it was the best day of my life!
