We're absolutely thrilled to have been a part of Krista and Adrian's unforgettable beach wedding in sunny Jamaica! Krista, rocking our fabulous Camillo robe in white with personalised embroidery, was an absolute vision of joy and beauty as she prepared for her big day. And let's not forget her fabulous squad of bridesmaids, all  in matching Camillo with the detailed embroidery which was a perfect complement to the tropical allure of their seaside celebration. Let's take a closer look at the magical union of Krista and Adrian: 

Tell us a little about yourselves, what you do, what you love, what is unique about you and your relationship?

My name is Krista and my new hubby is Adrian. Originally from Haiti, I was lucky enough to recently call Jamaica my new home. Our relationship started long distance and after many flights back and forth for the both of us, I officially made Jamaica my home in 2022. One year later, in December 2023, Adrian whisked me away to his favorite destination in the Bahamas and asked me to marry him. In February 2024, we got married on the beach in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. If you can’t already tell, Adrian and I love to travel. Whenever we can, we are ready to plan our next trip together.

Tell us about your special day, was there a specific theme or style? Tell us a little about the setting, the styling and some of your favourite details.

Our wedding was in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. A special place for Adrian and I, as we spent many weekend there during our relationship. Being islanders, Adrian and I love being by the sea, something about the warm sun and the sound of the waves just grounds us. Our wedding ceremony was quite literally on sand, with the waves and sunset in the background of our aisle. It was such an unforgettable day. Our wedding theme was timeless and classic, my colors were white with some subtle sage green accents. I wanted to look back years from now and be able to say that my wedding theme was not something that was trendy at that moment. We incorporated all our favorite things, from our specialty cocktails, disposable cameras, wedding favors made in Haiti, our olive oil cake, and even our favorite late night snack, pizzas!

How did you spend the morning of your wedding? How did you deal with the nerves leading up to the wedding?

This came as a shock to my wedding planner and my parents, I had zero nerves. I must admit, I am a planner, therefore most of my decisions were finalized within a month of hiring my wedding planner. As a yogi, I must say that I was very zen and focused on enjoying every second of the entire process and not allowing anything stress me out. The morning of the wedding, I woke up at 4am and could hear the ocean waves outside my window. As a coffee lover, I grabbed my cup of coffee and took a walk on the beach all by myself, and admired nature doing its thing – the waves crashing, the birds chirping and the sun rising. All around me the wedding production team and décor team had already begun their set up, it was truly surreal. By 9am everyone was awake, we had a big family breakfast, and it was then time to start hair and makeup. This is the moment I gifted my grandmother, mother, sister, soon to be sister-in-law and brother’s girlfriend their robes. It was magical all of us being in one room together, with our beautiful robes while we went one by one to get our hair and make up done, getting ready for what would be the best day of my life.

Tell us about your main outfits of the wedding day

My morning started with my Meeka pajamas and robe of course 😊 Finally, it was time to put on my wedding dress, a dress I had picked out a year prior. As a Lebanese Haitian, I am proud to say that I chose a Zuhair Murad dress that I believed would be as timeless and classic as I wanted the wedding day to be. My dress had a stunning veil and removable sleeves, a timeless piece of art.  

What items or services did you think were a waste of money? VS what are you so glad you splurged on?

To be honest, I would not change a thing. I am an accountant, so from the start I was always conscious about my decisions, and I must say, everything was more than I could have ever dreamed of. I think it is important to sit down and think of what matters to you mostly and spend on that, whereas the things that matter least, you don’t need to spend as much.

Any advice you would like to give to future brides

The biggest piece of advice I can give is to BE IN THE MOMENT. Do not let stress or anxiety get the best of your day. Whatever happen will happen and the best thing to do is to just let it be and enjoy every second of the day you spent months planning.
