Caprina and Carl


Caprina and Carl were married on October 10, 2009 at Sandals Dunn's River Villagio; Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Their lovely seaside wedding was followed by an elegant dinner reception. Caprina was one of the most enchanting brides I have ever worked with. Her attitude and demeanor were so positive and uplifting. She also has the most beautiful smile. I wish Caprina and Carl all the best.

Do your part




October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we all need to show our support. There are many ways to support the cause, from charity functions, to marathons. You can also help by buying your everyday household items that display the pink ribbon. One of my favorite charities is Brides Against Breast Cancer. Please visit our previous post on this charity and how you can get involved. Below you will see some helpful links. It doesn't matter what you do as long as you do something.
