This Jamaica wedding is great inspiration for couples looking to plan a simple and relaxed destination event. Cassy and Erik are from opposite coasts, but currently live in Florida. The Jamaica wedding was a beautiful meeting place for everyone to be able to gather to enjoy the festivities and have a little vacation of their own. Friends and family spent time together before the main event participating in cocktail hours and evening bonfires. For the big day, Cassy's mother flew in from Hawaii with gifts of special leis for the happy newlyweds and a hula performance for their reception.

This tropical event is full of fun details, from the ombre range of purple for the bridesmaid dresses to the creative and intimate spots throughout the grounds that were perfect for socializing (we desperately want to spend an afternoon in the waterside chair swings). Thank you to Jessica Bordner Photography for sharing such a lovely getaway with us!

Our Favorite Things:

  • The groomsmen in classic white shirts, gray khaki pants, and beach-appropriate flip-flops
  • The beautiful ocean backdrop for the ceremony and portraits
  • The Adirondack chair cake topper--fitting for this sandy wedding
