Christine and James - Jewel Runaway Bay, Jamaica

My husband and I got married this past April in Jamaica at the Jewel Runaway Bay Beach & Golf resort. The resort was beautiful and absolutely perfect! We and all of our 42 guests had a wonderful time! A few of our guests are already planning to return for their next family vacation! The resort was a family friendly resort that had many activities for all ages. The resort also has a water park with water slides and a lazy river that was an absolute blast! ALL of our guests (ranging from 3 months old to late 70's) had a lot of fun at the water park. The lifeguards were very personable and friendly but also on the ball and very professional. The beach was absolutely beautiful, very clean and finding a lounge chair was never a problem regardless of the time of day. The reef is in close proximity to the beach so if you enjoy snorkelling, be sure to grab a snorkel from the beach activities desk! You can also bring some bread or pieces of banana and feed the fishes. They will surround you within seconds....a really fun experience! 

Our wedding day was perfect despite a few glitches from Mother Nature. Our ceremony was on the beach in a private area away from all the other guests and felt secluded which was very nice and security made sure no one wandered around that area during our ceremony. The plan was to have our private cocktail and dinner reception on the beach as well but given threats of rain and heavy rainfall earlier that day, we had to move that portion of the wedding inside. The inside venue was a simple banquet room. It was ok however I had my decor (center pieces, bombonieres, guest book, seating chart, etc.) to help dress it up. I also asked the wedding coordinator to put up the lights I had rented for the beach site inside and used my flowers from the ceremony on the head table which changed the feel of the room. In the end, the indoor venue was a blessing in disguise given the high humidity/ heat that day as the AC was very well received by all of our guests. The food was absolutely delicious as well!! The resort grounds have beautiful scenery from lavish gardens, palm trees, white sandy beach, and even a horse and carriage ride with a 'Just Married' sign! Needless to say we got a lot of beautiful pictures!!

The week felt like a week-long wedding celebration as the staff were very friendly and congratulated us on our nuptials throughout the week. We were lucky enough to get an amazing upgrade upon our arrival and were given a 2 bedroom suite with a large oceanfront balcony and 24 hour butler service. We also had a very romantic private dinner on the beach 24 hours after we got married (literally in the same spot where we said our 'I do's' and had our own private server!). A very memorable experience for our first dinner as newlyweds!

Karen was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was so patient and helpful throughout the entire planning and booking process! She took care of all the booking details for all of my wedding guests with ease making the process very easy for everyone. Her knowledge regarding the various resorts and options available to us was definitely an asset as narrowing down a resort for your big day can be an overwhelming process. I had a hard time narrowing down our wedding resort and Karen was so patient and helpful! Karen went the extra mile and was happy to offer ideas and tips to make my destination wedding absolutely perfect! Her service was excellent and I would strongly recommend 'My Wedding Away' to any brides looking to work with a professional, personable, genuine wedding specialist who truly has your best interest as her priority!

Karen, we cannot thank you enough for all of your help and sincerely thank you for helping make sure our trip/wedding was perfect!!!
