Venus: Rockhouse Hotel Negril

Scans: Photo Impact Imaging

 

Once upon a time there was a girl who met a guy in Ireland. They got married in Lyon, France. One week later that girl flew from her honeymoon alone and documented a wedding in Negril, Jamaica. The Rockhouse Hotel in Negril, Jamaica to be exact.

True story.

Oh. And then that girl slept for 4 hours after the wedding was over and flew directly back to Ireland. Exactly how tired does that make you reading that? Because I just can’t believe that happened. This wedding was from 3 years ago but I never published it because I tend to get busy. Resolutions are still going strong I tell you though!

The heat from this day was absolutely astounding. I drank 6 liters of water that day and never once needed to use the bathroom. (How is this possible?) My pores did it all for me. Also, I had to keep vigilant from going suite to suite with my lenses as the would fog up from the heat and humidity! In 11 years, the only other time that happened was in the height of summer in Georgia in an un-airconditioned church ceremony. Georgia, Jamaica…same same!
