Jill & Andrew Miller
February 9, 2013
Originally featured in the Style Me Pretty blog, Jill & Andrew Miller were delighted to share their Jamaica destination wedding experience at Round Hill. Read below for our interview with the happily-married couple on their wedding at Round Hill, including their advice on having a destination wedding in Jamaica.
How did the two of you meet?
We met at a trade show in California. We both work for family businesses in the architectural metal industry.
How did Andrew propose?
There was no formal proposal. We were at Round Hill on vacation and decided about 2 days into the trip that we wanted to get married and we wanted to get married at Round Hill. We did—we got married there just under a year later.
What made you choose Jamaica for your destination wedding?
We choose Jamaica because of Round Hill. We love vacationing at Round Hill and knew our guests would too. It was a treat for everyone.
How did you hear about Round Hill?
We were referred by a friend and went there on vacation prior to our wedding.
Did you hire a wedding planner? If yes, why? If no, why not?
Yes. We used a New York wedding planner, Jennifer Zabinsky and florist, Matthew Robbins Design, as well as Round Hill’s wedding planner, Racquel Bernard and local florist, Tai Florals. We were based out of New York and it helped with many of the logistics prior to the wedding.
Did your wedding go as planned?
Yes. I can’t think of anything we would have done differently.
What is one thing you wished you didn’t worry about during the wedding?
Concerns surrounding our guests; we wanted to make sure our guests had the best time and that travel wasn’t a burden. We tried to make it as easy as possible for them.
What was the highlight of your destination wedding in Jamaica?
We loved spending 5 days with our family and friends. It was made memories to last a lifetime.
What is your favourite memory from your wedding at Round Hill?
Getting married on the Spa lawn overlooking the ocean was perfect. Dancing all night long– a close second.
Would you recommend Round Hill to family and friends? If yes, why? If no why not?
Yes! We loved having our wedding here. It was vacation and a wedding built into one. The Staff at Round Hill is all wonderful and so easy to work with. We would do it all over again.
What is your best advice for other couples planning a destination wedding?
To have one! We loved having a vacation/wedding with 80 of our closest friends and family. It was the best 5 days ever!
