Stir It Up: Mariel & Matt in Ocho Rios, Jamaica
When they met through mutual friends in 2002 Mariel and Matt hit it off instantly. Six years later, Matt delivered a surprise proposal in Los Angeles. “Mariel thought she was attending a BBQ, but I had secretly decorated the backyard with rose petals and a beautiful table with two cards—the first one telling her how much I loved her, and the second containing a mood ring. I got down on one knee and asked if she would accept a ring upgrade,” explains Matt. The couple already knew they wanted to have a destination wedding, where their guests could experience their big day, and enjoy some fun-in-the-sun. Mariel and Matt found their dream location on a breathtaking beach at the Jamaica Inn Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
