Donnette,

I do not think that any words can do your work justice. You are truly amazing! When working with you, my experience seemed too good to be true. I would contact you and any request I had you made it a reality. During the initial planning of our wedding my (now) husband and I chose to have a destination wedding. Planning a wedding is hard enough on its own; never mind trying to plan a wedding from another country. We found this process to be worrisome because we had no idea who we were talking to or what to expect, but Donnette ensured us that we would have the wedding of our dreams and that is exactly what she provided.

We contacted Donnette, via her website and informed her that we would be taking a Carnival Cruise and were interested in having our wedding in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Along with the basic questions regarding pricing and accommodations, I had a million other questions and concerns. This was my day and I wanted it to be perfect. I was so excited and remember checking my email every two seconds for a response. Donnette did not have me waiting long and answered my long (very long) email within minutes. We set a date and the planning began. I like most brides knew what I wanted. I would call Donnette every week with something new and she would say "Okay", anything I wanted she provided and if she did not provide it she found a way to offer it to us. About a week before the wedding she sent me an email verifying everything that we had discussed over the past months and she had not missed a thing. I was amazed!

The day before we were leaving for our cruise/wedding, hurricane advisories were on every news station. I had heard that rain on your wedding day was "good luck" so a hurricane on our wedding day could either mean all the luck in the world or disaster. Hurricane Isaac came and it seemed as though my day was heading straight for disaster. When we arrived to the embarking station we were informed that our cruise had to make adjustments and that our stops had been switched. We planned on being in Ocho Rios on August 27th, but because of the storm we would not arrive to Ocho Rios until the August 28th. I went into a panic and called Donnette. She immediately calmed me down and reassured me that everything was going to be okay.

On August 28th 2012, we arrived in Ocho Rios, Jamaica on Carnival Cruise Ship Destiny. One of the requests I had for Donnette was that my husband and I did not ride in the same car. I did not want to see him before the wedding, so she sent two cars. My husband was to be picked up before me. I forgot to tell him that the ships time was an hour behind Jamaican time so my husband and the other men with him went out an hour early. Despite them being early their car was still waiting for them. Donnette had the driver (Pablo) give them a tour of Jamaica. My husband says that the sightseeing and Pablo were some of his favorite parts of the trip.

I was picked up after my husband and was greeted by Donnette. She was so sweet! She drove the girls and I to our beach destination and when I saw where I was to be married I was in "AWE" I could not believe how gorgeous it was. My wedding was better than I ever could have imagined. Everything was perfect.

Thank you so much Donnette for everything that you did for my family, husband, and myself. Donnette, you are amazing and great at what you do. You provided the wedding of my dreams and a great experience. I was married in the middle of a hurricane and you still made sure my special day went smoothly. You are so talented and everything looked gorgeous! We look forward to visiting you in the future!
P.S. The cake is to die for.

I want to thank Donnette for making our beach wedding so special. I have to say I was apprehensive of finding a wedding planner on the internet. But if you want to get married in Jamaica that is the only way to go.

Donnette was very quick with her replies to my many questions, and so helpful. She picked us up the day of the wedding on time like she said she would. We choose to have a private beach location. She took us to a very out of the way cove and it was just breath taking. The minister was very sweet; the ceremony was very sweet and traditional, as we wanted it. We enjoyed ever moment of it. Also the price was very reasonable and the pictures turned out great. If you have any question you can email me at kellie0414@gmail.com

Dear Donnette,

Thank you so much for doing such a great job on our wedding. We are forever grateful and wish you and your business all the best. We got married on April 24, 2009 while on a cruise with 18 guests attending including friends and family. We docked in the beautiful Ocho Rios Bay and had a wonderful ceremony on a beautiful private beach nearby. We have to say thanks to our hospitable host Donnette who was there every step of the way. The pictures were beautiful to say the least and the DVD excellent. We had a sumptuous mixture of finger foods for Horsdoeuvres and were kept entertained by a great steel band.  They made the bouquets exactly how I wanted (I sent them pictures) and we are very pleased about that.  We would recommend Exotic Dream Weddings to anyone who wants an affordable and well organized destination wedding.

Thanks again Donnette and we will be recommending you to others. God Bless.

Kashana’s Testimony

My husband and I were married on September 15, 2008 and we used the services of Exotic Dream Weddings.  We had been debating rather or not to have a traditional church wedding in our home town or to go to an island.  I think we made the perfect choice by choosing to get married in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and to use the services of Exotic Dream Weddings. 

The ceremony was beautiful by the waterfall at Shaw Park Gardens.  Donnette and her staff were very professional and very kind.  When I saw the pictures they were breathtaking.  I never saw pictures that looked so clear and perfect.  My husband and I were very pleased.  I look at the pictures everyday. 

I was worried a lot about the weather as we got married during hurricane season, and there were a few storms right before we went to Jamaica, but Donnette was so positive and she kept saying that things were going to work out.  Donnette was absolutely right; the weather was nice, and everything turned out excellent. 

I would recommend to anyone that wants to have an inexpensive ceremony, but yet elegant and beautiful to use the services of Exotic Dream Weddings.

Dear Mrs. Pottinger,

We would like to take this time to formally thank you and your staff for the wonderful job they did at our wedding. Not only was your whole team professional while on the job, but they were also punctual and very respectful during the marriage ceremony.

The speed in which we were able to receive our pictures and videos was astounding. We are so thankful to you for working over time in order to accommodate us as we were leaving the island in such a short period of time.

Thank you so much for your efforts to make our wedding memories a success. The quality of your work was really top notch. Once again thank you so much.

Sincerely,

Sherwin & Teresa Commock

My name is Gail Jacquette. I got married on December 23, 2006. My wedding pictures are amazing, because I used Videopictures. I am very “picky” and I never look good in pictures; however, I don’t know what the photographers did, but I was stunning.

Donnette and her staff were amazing. The photographers were professional and knew exactly what they were doing. They captured moments that I didn’t even know was happening. Oh my goodness, I cannot say enough about Donnette, once you meet her it’s like you knew her years before. I made all my plans from Miami, Florida with her, she was prompt in responding to any questions or concerns I had. She also customized my package to suit my budget. She is very nice and understands that this is one of the most important days of a person’s life.

I absolutely, with no hesitation recommend Videopictures for any important moment that anyone needs to capture. And remember I said, I am very ‘picky’. Don’t hesitate to call me 305-469-2392.

Dear Donnette,

Nimesh and I wanted to thank you and your staff for doing such a phenomenal job with the wedding/reception pictures and video. Everything turned out beautifully, and just how we wanted it, in terms of capturing the moment. We have had so many people compliment the beautiful photography after looking at our pictures and video. You and your staff did a wonderful job, that too, without having shot an Indian ceremony before. We recommend you to anyone who would like a professional, beautiful job done for their special occasion.

Thank you again, Aru and Nimesh

Thanks for everything! Donnette came highly recommended by the Shaw Park Resort when I called to inquire about videography services. Referrals are very important to me, especially being in my situation where I was calling from the US for someone to perform these once in a lifetime services of capturing my sister's wedding ceremony. Upon meeting Donnette, I could tell that we were in good hands. We were on a cruise ship and only had hours to spend in Ocho Rios. Not only did we receive the dvd of the wedding within only a couple of hours after the ceremony, we were allowed to view it before leaving. The quality was exceptional...she used our music and it was incorporated throughout the video. Donnette and Videopictures, Inc. has been truly a blessing to us.

Retrieving, Leading, Seeding and Feeding for Kingdom Purposes!

Have a blessed day!

Dear Donnette,

Thank you and your staff for your professionalism and attention to detail while capturing our special moment. Our July 20, 2007 wedding photographs were beautiful, as well as breathtaking.
