Last month, we had the pleasure of arranging a beautiful destination wedding for our clients, Joe and Maggie Dominy. After an intimate oceanside ceremony at the Sandals Negril in Jamaica, the couple spent another week relaxing in the honeymoon suite to celebrate their love.
We caught up with Joe and Maggie after their return home to give our official congratulations and hear how their special once-in-a-lifetime trip turned out. Keep reading for all the details of their Sandals Negril Jamaica wedding and honeymoon!
Congratulations, Joe and Maggie! How was your special day?
Joe: Our ceremony was amazing! We booked the sunset wedding package; the Sandals team blocked off a section of the beach for us and timed everything perfectly so that the prime moments of our nuptials fell right in the middle of golden hour. The photos were just incredible!
After that, we had a private dance party on the beach with our family. It was an intimate reception, but Sandals still hooked up the sound systems and gazebos just for us!
What was planning a destination wedding at the Sandals Negril like?
Joe: The Sandals team made everything super easy. I was really impressed by both the wedding planner and the photographer they provided us. They were so organized and on top of every detail.
What were some of the highlights of your honeymoon?
Joe: We really enjoyed all of the water sports and activities throughout the week. I loved ocean paddle boarding and snorkeling, but taking the discovery scuba class was probably one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. When else do you get a chance to actually stay underwater for that long?
We also rented a private boat one day and took it to a bunch of different sites. We got to see where Bob Marley lived, explored some caves, and even went cliff-jumping. That made for a really memorable adventure!
Did you enjoy any special meals together at Sandals Negril?
Joe: We did have an amazing honeymoon dinner that came with our wedding package, but it’s so difficult to choose one that stands out. Trying all of the international cuisines throughout the week was a highlight for both of us — there were so many options, I never ate the same meal twice. Though I will say that I’m a big breakfast person, so for me the full-on breakfast buffets were top notch!
How did Southern Travel Agency assist in your big day?
Joe: Southern Travel Agency made our destination wedding absolutely effortless. We loved working with Melissa. She hand-picked the rooms we wanted, monitored the best flight deals for us on a weekly basis, personally contacted the resort to fix any issues we had, and was there to advise us every step of the way. She’s got just the sweetest personality and made our lives so much easier throughout this process!
