A Romantic Summer Wedding on the Lush Island of Jamaica

A Romantic Summer Wedding on the Lush Island of Jamaica. Before we delve into the wedding day, let’s talk about the proposal, which was as heartwarming as they come. Danny visited Kara’s first-grade classroom to read a charming children’s book he’d written and illustrated, titled “You and Me Under the Sea.” As he read to her students, he got down on one knee and asked Kara to be his forever. It was a proposal woven into the fabric of a beautiful story, a moment of pure magic.

From the moment you set foot at Kara and Danny’s wedding, you couldn’t help but be swept away by the lush greenery that enveloped the island. Their choice of colors—white, black, green, and gold—blended seamlessly with the vibrant tropical surroundings. It was a nod to nature, and it set the stage for the natural, romantic, and sophisticated ambiance Kara had envisioned.

For her big day, Kara wore a timeless gown designed by Jenny Yoo for Anthropologie Weddings. The classic fit, strapless sweetheart neckline, and the detachable chiffon watteau created a look that was both elegant and ethereal. The dress was adorned with delicate white buttons down the back, and Kara’s long veil, speckled with pearls, added a touch of romance fit for a fairy tale. Kara’s bridesmaids exuded grace in dove grey dresses of various designs from Show Me Your Mumu. Each dress was a unique expression of style, perfectly complementing the elegant theme. On the other side, the groom and his groomsmen sported classic black suits paired with white pocket squares, black ties, and black shoes. Their attire exuded timeless sophistication.

Kara and Danny’s ceremony was breathtaking, as it was set right in front of the turquoise ocean, with crashing waves in the background. Lux Event Design waved its magic wand and transformed the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception spaces into dreamy wonderlands. Delicate baby’s breath, pristine white roses, and lush tropical greenery from the local surroundings adorned the venues, breathing life into Kara’s vision.

As the sun began to set, guests were treated to a signature margarita, a delightful blend of top-shelf Patron tequila, triple sec, freshly squeezed lime juice, and a hint of salt. Each drink was adorned with a custom stirrer featuring Kara and Danny’s wedding monogram—a personal touch that didn’t go unnoticed. For dinner, the culinary team delivered a culinary masterpiece with jerk-spiced free-range chicken breast, seared salmon, creamy mashed potatoes, and savory pumpkin risotto. Dessert was equally enchanting, featuring a chocolate mousse timbale with a raspberry center, elegantly paired with an apricot compote. The wedding cake, a vanilla delight generously coated in velvety vanilla buttercream icing, stole the spotlight. Carefully selected local greenery and bright floral accents turned it into a work of art. Kara and Danny shared their first slice at the Welcome Party and celebrated with a towering champagne display that added a dash of grandeur to the festivities at their reception. Kara & Danny’s romantic summer wedding on the lush island of Jamaica was one to never forget.

MEET Jordan

Photography has stuck with me ever since I first looked through a plastic Fisher Price viewfinder as a child. Like a “wise” young adult, I talked myself out of studying it in college. But like a true artist, I made my way back to it soon enough.  

Despite working in Exercise Science and Occupational Therapy, my camera came with me everywhere I went—family gatherings, friends’ parties, vacations, or just a walk on the beach. It wasn’t long before I officially photographed my first family; falling in love with their stories and the affection between them. Wedding photography quickly became my primary focus. Through the years and working with over 400 clients, I’ve refined my artistic eye, honed my process, and remained just as passionate about people and the connections that form between us. 

Whatever you’re planning or celebrating, I’d be honored to artfully and intentionally capture meaningful moments you’ll treasure forever. 

an easy-going and detail focused creative who brings an enthusiastic and poised energy to every session and wedding day.
