Samantha & John

With a rainy morning here in NYC, we're taking a mental trip to Montego Bay for Samantha & John's destination wedding! Jamaica has such special meaning to the couple and we loved seeing their modern love story unfold there. Samantha looks effortlessly beautiful in her HB6622 dress- an elegant choice for the breezy island setting! Congratulations to this lovely couple and special thanks to Misha Earle Photography for sharing these images!

Saja: How did you meet?

Samantha: John and I were collegiate athletes at the same university. Our teams often hung out around campus together and we shared the same circle of friends, but it wasn't until late in our senior year of college that we were actually introduced by a mutual friend at a local bar. 

Saja: How did he propose?

Samantha: John and I were spending the weekend in upstate New York at my parent's house. The home I grew up in. We woke up early in the morning to prepare for a day of rafting down the Delaware River with my family. We were having our morning coffee and tea and right there, in the home that I learned what love is by watching my parents love each other more with each passing day, John proposed. We spent the rest of the weekend celebrating with family. It was perfect.
Saja: Where did the wedding take place? What made you choose there?

Samantha: We got married in Montego Bay, Jamaica- a place we've visited many times and love so much. There were many reasons why we chose to get married in Jamaica but the main reason was that we did not want to be consumed with the stresses that planning a wedding can often bring. We wanted this special time to be about our love, not wedding invitation fonts or the color of our linens. Additionally, prior to our wedding our families have not had the opportunity to spend much time together. Our destination wedding gave everyone several days to bond and relax in paradise.
Saja: Is there anything you can point out about the photos that we might not have noticed? 

Samantha: You can tell by the pictures, but if you were there you would know that our wedding day was one of the hottest and most humid days we'd had the whole trip. It was almost 100 degrees and humid. Knowing this may be the case, I was so happy to have found Saja Wedding. My dress was perfect for the weather conditions and I didn't have to trade beauty for practicality. I just wish I could wear it every day! 

Saja: Which of the photos is your favorite? Why?

Samantha: Our favorite photos are the ones of just us on the beach. Because of our love for the beach, Jamaica and its culture, we couldn't think of a better place to have our special day captured. There's no place we would rather be.
Saja: What was your favorite part of the day?

Samantha: There were so many great moments but one of our favorites was the wish lantern release at the end of our reception. Our reception was on the beach so after the last song everyone in our group released a large wish lantern. They sailed over the ocean, lighting up the water. It was a beautiful moment and the perfect way to end a magical day.

    Many people have written articles about how they were helped but I am very grateful to this great man who brought my ex-husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When I came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him helping with a cure for Herpes Virus and I have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most innermost feelings many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent of two boys for almost 6 years and though my ex-husband was not staying with me and the kids I still wish someday he will return to me. This doctor I encountered is known as Dr. Odunga helped me with my wishes and I am happy to write on this website that my ex-husband is back with me. I am very happy to share the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don’t know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but I always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex or facing an infertility problem, contact this great man at Or WhatsApp/Call +2348167159012 and share an awesome testimony too just as I did
