Getting married abroad was a natural choice for Sharon Wong and Jeff Roush. The couple, who are both avid travelers, wanted to share this passion with their wedding guests. While looking for a location, Sharon and Jeff kept two things in mind: proximity and affordability, eventually narrowing it down to Jamaica.

"We thought Negril's spectacular limestone bluffs and mellow reggae vibe would be the perfect backdrop," says Sharon. They selected the intimate Tensing Pen resort for their venue. "It was small enough that we could book the whole resort," she adds. "Doing so guaranteed our guests a special experience and allowed us to have a private wedding, which was very important."
