My husband and I were married on March 2, 2018, at Coral Seas Cliffs in Negril, Jamaica. Faith was the perfect fit for helping us plan our ceremony and reception, and our wedding would not have been nearly as well executed in Jamaica without her.
From the beginning – even before my now husband and I met Faith – she understood what we wanted and made it happen. We had 74 people travel from various places in the United States to Negril for a 5-day weekend of fun and celebration, and she took all of the stress away from us, allowing us to truly enjoy the planning and our actual wedding weekend with absolutely no worries.
First, Faith was able to secure our venue on our desired date. When we met her in November 2017 in Negril for wedding planning, she surprised us and said she was also going to set up a tented cocktail hour with a steel drum band on the lawn for between the ceremony and reception. Between November and March, the cliffs where the ceremony was taking place went through an amazing transformation, being upgraded to look much nicer and become much safer, especially for the many children we had present.
Faith suggested vendors for all of the details of our big day. Rosemarie at Floral Fantasies was outstanding, Sweet Spice catered the amazing food, and Miss Margaret provided an unbelievable dessert table for us. Before the wedding, we met once with Rosemarie and once with Miss Margaret. They both completely understood what we were going for, and the end results were better than we could have ever dreamed. Faith was also instrumental in helping us set up an after-party at Kenny’s Italian, and my family friends at Clive’s Transport Service provided transportation to and from Merrils and Coral Seas Cliffs. DJ Buck provided the music during the reception and was a good sport when my sister surprised us with a “toast” to the tune of “Ice, Ice Baby.”
A friend of ours travelled to our wedding and served as our photographer, but Faith – always going above and beyond – also made sure her photographer was on hand to capture the details of the day.
Faith recommended Reverend Joseph Campbell for our ceremony, and we could not have imagined a better Jamaican officiant. He met us twice before the wedding to answer any questions and walk through the ceremony details. His calming demeanor and rhythmic voice, along with a couple of quiet jokes to us during the wedding, put us at ease and helped us transition into married life in the most relaxed manner possible. His joy at officiating was apparent and contagious to everyone present.
We brought a lot of decorations to Jamaica for our wedding and showed Faith what we were thinking of doing with them. Faith and her team executed them perfectly, getting the gist of what we wanted, and making perfect decisions with the extra items we gave them. Fashionable and hip, Faith either guided us in the right direction with every detail or made sure we had everything we said we wanted (thanks for the mahogany chairs, Faith!!!).
I cannot say enough about Faith, her staff, and her recommended vendors. We would do it all over again if we could and not change a single thing. From our accommodations at Merrils to our boat rides with Andy to our ceremony and after-party, the weekend was perfect. I have been going to Negril for more than 20 years, and putting trust in the locals to help us plan and execute our wedding weekend made me fall in love with it even more. My husband and I would highly recommend Faithful Wedding Services to anyone looking to plan their wedding in Negril and trust Faith to guide you in the right directions when it comes to other vendors and the details of your day.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much, Faith!
Again, I’m sorry this took me forever to do. If you have any clients who have questions or who are debating between you and other wedding planners, feel free to give them my email address and I can help ease any worries they have. You are fantastic at what you do, and we were so lucky to have you as such an integral part of our wedding. I hope the new year finds you happy and healthy!!
