This is My Fairy Tale!

When we planned our wedding at Breezes Trelawny in Jamaica for January 4th, 2011, we didn’t have high expectations for the resort, rather for our family and our ability to have a great time in any situation. My husband and I had traveled around the world and our only hope was to experience somewhere new while marrying each other. What we didn’t expect was that it was a tropical paradise situated in some of the most stunningly beautiful surroundings on earth. After all, it was here where our lifetime together began.

Breezes Trelawny is not the top resort in Jamaica and it lacks in several all-inclusive areas, such as food, available activities, and cleanliness, but the great photo opportunities were in abundance. I can’t imagine anywhere else in the world where we could get photos on the beach, around a flower-filled walkway, near rustic shacks, in a gazebo, around a pool, on a rock climbing wall, and on a trapeze (Okay, I can guarantee you didn’t expect the trapeze, but it worked).

Most people spend thousands of dollars on having the most beautiful wedding setting and spend thousands more on alcohol and food to follow the ceremony. Our simple, classic wedding was preceded by a dancing bride down the isle that just so happened to be a spectacular beach and succeeded with an open bar and unlimited food in an à la carte restaurant with a singing, dancing waiter. Everything was easy.

Once in awhile,
Right in the middle of an ordinary life,
Love gives us a fairy tale.

    • Congratulations on your wedding this year too! Where were you married? We chose Jamaica because it was an all-inclusive country that we both hadn’t visited, but it probably wasn’t our top touristy place to go.

      I love you pictures of Rome and Venice. They were both on my list for favorite cities in the world. Did you tour anywhere else in Europe while you were there?

      Thanks for your comment; it is appreciated.



      • Thankyou. Jamaica looks so tropical, great choice! We were married in Australia in a city where we grew up but decided to travel Europe for 4.5 weeks for our honeymoon. Have started writing about all the places in my blog 🙂 We did Rome, Amalfi Coast, Venice, Milan, Cinque Terre, Nice, Monaco, Lyon, Paris and London. Thought since it took us 24 hours to get to Europe, we might as well make the most of it.
        In Europe, my favourite place was Paris, what about yours?


        • I loved everything about Ireland and Italy so I would say that it would have to be a city in one of those two countries. With lots of history, culture, and beauty, I did love Paris but it was not in my top ten cities of Europe. Nice was spectacular though.

          Where are you off to next?


  1. Hey I saw you liked my post and I had to check out your blog! You have been to some amazing places, you really are living the dream, congratulations. If I could visit half the places you have in my lifetime I would be a very happy woman. I seen a comment that you liked Ireland, yay Thank You, we loved having you here I’m sure 🙂 All the best

    P.s Your wedding looked awesome and your dress is beautiful, I love that you wore it with sandles.


    • Everything was kind of all in one – the pre-honeymoon, the marriage, and the honeymoon. We were just happy to enjoy a vacation with family and friends and have a easy, fun wedding day.

      I couldn’t have been happier with it 🙂


  2. Stunniing! this is truly wonderful. It’s funny how people spend thousands to create their ‘dream’ wedding. If ever I get married the bulk of the money will go to photography!!! These photos are a-maziing! Best wishes as you continue your life together!
