Real Weddings: Jeff and Amy’s Garden Nuptials
It’s hard to imagine a wedding more charming and romantic than Jeff and Amy’s lovely garden wedding at Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa, Jamaica. Jeff and Amy met through mutual friends in their favorite hangout spot. They were pretty much inseparable from the moment they met and completely mesmerized by each other; it was definitely love at first sight. From the handcrafted elements and stunning garden backdrop to the jovial wedding party, this real wedding will have you falling in love all over again!

This dress pictured here was actually Amy’s second dress! After major disappointments with her first dress (including it being five inches too short!), Amy "bumped in to" HER dress in a mall. She bought it on the spot! Amy’s lovely bouquet was a personal D.I.Y. brooch design that incorporated heirlooms from both the bride and groom’s family. “It was very sentimental to me”- Amy.*
“In the middle of the ceremony, Amy and Jeff asked the preacher to incorporate a letter exchange. “We each wrote a letter telling the other why we wanted to get married and share our lives together. The letters will remain sealed until we open them on our 5th wedding anniversary. We plan to continue the tradition every 5 years!”- Jeff and Amy.
“We really wanted an intimate wedding and a great excuse to vacation with our closest family and friends. After tons of research, we decided on Sandals. We chose Sandals Negril because of the intimacy of the resort, its beautiful beach, and Negril’s famous sunsets.” –Amy and Jeff on why they chose Sandals.
“The most incredible part of our "Weddingmoon" was the abundance of love exuding from all of our guests, and from the staff at Sandals Negril. The whole vacation was an incredibly humbling experience. To know that we have so many friends and family that took time out of their lives to travel so far to celebrate meant the world us both. We are so fortunate to have such an amazing support system and Negril was the perfect place to bring everyone together!” – Amy and Jeff.
A huge thanks to Amy and Jeff for sharing their warm and beautiful wedding with us! We wish you both all the happiness and joy in the world!
