September 13, 2010

JamaicaReal Weddings

Set on the rock-cliffs of Negril Jamaica, with the pink hued sunset on the horizon as their backdrop, Chakeia Manley and Brandon Johnson said their vows and became husband and wife. They stayed at the luxuriously rustic-chic resort The Caves, and held their reception dinner at the famous Negril lighthouse next door.

This wedding was carefully and lovingly planned by Rebecca and Amanda at LUXE as well as Chakeia, of course, and her lovely family and bridesmaids. They all put their hearts and souls into the details, making sure the day went off without a hitch! Onsite for the wedding day, Amanda from LUXE also joined to make this wedding truly spectacular.

Here are some of Rebecca’s personal highlights from the wedding:

-Seeing the ceremony area be turned from a beachy cliff bar into a veritable garden

-The butterfly release during Brandon and Chakeia’s recession

-Surprising the guests with African Dancers at the reception

-Placing the Louis Vuitton sunglasses into their custom-made silk boxes for the wedding party’s favor

-Running to the Negril Burger King because a guest was craving a burger for dinner

-Holding the bride’s dress for her to step into

-Seeing the sky explode with fireworks at the after-party
