Hyatt Zilara Jamaica Destination Wedding. Melissa & Ryan

Melissa & I have known each other for quite a few years. We attended the same high school graduating only a year apart. She also served as a bridesmaid in some of my earliest weddings.
I was elated when she called to ask Matthew & I to photograph her wedding in Montego Bay Jamaica. Of course I said yes! Matthew & I love destination weddings but this was the first time we got to travel outside of the United States. We had such a great time during our stay. There were so many great moments we got to be apart of during this wedding. I am so excited to share them with you!!!

We started the day out at The Zilara Spa, the staff was super friendly and the space was perfect for Melissa & her girls to have fun while getting ready for the big day.

Melissa said “My yellow rose bouquet came from my days of competitive dance where after every performance I would get a single yellow rose with a tag that read “tear drops from heaven” from my grandmother who passed away. It was a nice way to include her in our day.” I couldn’t agree more!
