Hi! New follower here! Love your blog and family-related posts! I was looking at your wedding photos (you guys looked suppaaaa cute) and noticed that your family wasn't present at the Jamaica ceremony, so I was just wondering if your family is on board with the marriage. Feel free not to answer this if it's too personal! :)

My family looooves my husband, probably more than they love me. They just couldn’t afford to fly to Jamaica and they knew that was the wedding I really wanted. I tried for about a year and a half to plan a big, local wedding to have my family there, but I couldn’t make it work for a couple reasons. 

We did have a nice lunch with both of our families the day we got legally married and I have a video of our ceremony in Jamaica, so we did try to involve them as much as possible.
