Tara and James’ Vow Renewal in Negril, Jamaica

After cracking a few jokes and sharing some laughs, Tara and James fell in love almost instantly and officially tied the knot back in 1998. Fast forward 24 years, James got back down on one knee and popped the question…again! 

They knew exchanging their vows for the second time in front of their family and friends would be the perfect way to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. 

They couldn’t have picked a more beautiful place to say their I dos again than in Negril, Jamaica, which also happened to be where they originally honeymooned! 

Right away, they chose Royalton Negril Resort & Spa because they wanted to go “the all inclusive route and travel to a beautiful location.” And what a beautiful location and wedding it was! 

To make their magical day extra memorable, gorgeous decor, special photos from their first wedding, candles and silver mats filled the venue along with their closest loved ones – both virtual and in person. 

Their big day was filled with sentimental moments and unique surprises that made guests watch in awe, especially during the reception when their son gave a touching speech in honor of his stepdad, James. 

Tara recalls “he sought permission to refer to James as Dad! There wasn’t a dry eye on the patio!” 

Their Jamaica destination wedding came together beautifully and just how they imagined, despite a few hiccups the day of their wedding. Before their big day even began, rain poured over Jamaica, the only day it had rained all week. But a little rain didn’t stop them and after it cleared, the most breathtaking sunset broke out over the clouds giving them a backdrop that “wowed everyone!”

With all the memories made during their romantic vow renewal, Tara and James shared special moments in Jamaica all week long. 

They enjoyed all water related activities and excursions like snorkeling and parasailing, and even held hands cliff jumping at the famous Rick’s Cafe! 

To sum up their weeklong celebration in pure paradise, they describe it as “blessed, fairy-tale, and convenient.” It was everything they could have ever dreamed of and more! 

Tara and James plan on returning back to Negril, Jamaica for more adventures in the future and said “this destination has become a go-to and has sentimental value.” After honeymooning and tying the knot in a tropical oasis like Negril, we don’t blame them for wanting to return!
