Vintage Chic Destination Wedding in Port Royal, Jamaica

When Nikolaus Price and Anna-kaye Chisholm Price met at work, it was far from love at first sight. They were assigned a task that forced then to work together, and they found each other to be cocky and obnoxious.  However, after getting to know each other, their opinions changed. They became good friends and later soul mates. After five years of dating, Nikolaus knew he wanted to surprise Anna-kaye with a beautiful proposal.  So after work, he took her to the construction site of their new house. They frequently checked on the progress of the site, so Anna-kaye didn’t think that anything usual was happening.  Then a mysterious person came out of the shadows. She recalls, “I eventually realized that this person was actually holding up a big sign that read, ‘5 years 4months and 3 days ago I asked you to be mine.’ After a few seconds passed he stepped away and there was another person holding a second sign that read, ‘5 years 4 months and 3 days from now this will be our home, and I will tell our child how I proposed.’ Then finally another person steps out with a third sign that read, ‘Anna-kaye will you marry me?’”  The people holding the signs turned out to be their friends, and after getting over her shock, Anna-kaye said, “Yes!”

The couple had a gorgeous destination wedding in Port Royal, Jamaica at a historical fort.  Modern all white lounge furniture, formal dinner tables, and brightly colored flowers were juxtaposed against the vintage architecture of the fort creating a chic and rustic ambiance.  The beautiful weather, scenic landscape and party vibe of this luxurious outdoor wedding were masterfully photographed by Dwayne Watkins.

Wedding Style

Off the shoulder A line lace gown with a modern ruffled bottom. My favorite accessory was my custom made pearls given to me on the day by my husband.

Wedding Theme

The wedding took place at a historical fort in the famous historical town of port royal. We used that old rustic vibe as the foundation and placed modern touches against it. This is also seen in the venue choices for the photos (engagement and wedding) and even in the dress (lace with a modern twist). The choice of decor was also very eclectic - cocktail and soft seating mixed with formal dinner tables. Our wedding colors were navy blue, royal purple and yellow, but they were all used as accent colors and white as the prominent. I wanted to use the white to lift and enhance the beauty of the architecture.
We did not incorporate any cultural elements. We wanted to keep it simple and focus more on the party aspect. So many of the traditional elements such as bouquet and garter toss, numerous speeches and the sand ceremony were eliminated.
