Real Wedding: Paige + Jeremy
Paige and Jeremy met at the University of Pennsylvania where they both attended college and ran track. “We would see each other every day out on the track, and kept eyeing each other before we even mustered up the strength to say ‘Great race!’,” says Paige. “Then we saw each other out at a track party and were able to have our first real conversation without shying away from one another! From there on we basically ran into each other’s hearts and were inseparable.”
Jeremy proposed to Paige while the pair—who describe themselves as avid travelers— were on vacation in Italy. One night after dinner, they found themselves stargazing from the private rooftop deck of their hotel when a shooting star flew across the twinkling night sky. “Before I knew it, Jeremy was on one knee proposing!” recalls Paige. (Jeremy claims that the starry sighting was confirmation that it was the right moment to propose.) “And it was,” says Paige. “I said yes in pure shock and utter happiness.”
“The diverse population, the courtesy and generosity of everyone, the service provided and the safe culture are just a few of the gems that this island provides. It’s our paradise and brings us back every year.” – Paige
On February 11, 2017, the couple were joined by fifty-five of their nearest and dearest for a romantic, rustic, fun wedding at Kaibo, planned by their in-house event planner Elina Zavala. “She coordinated and executed everything amazingly, and put our stress points at ease. We felt very comfortable arriving in the Cayman Islands having not picked out anything in person,” says Paige.
“Kaibo provided great hospitality throughout the entire process, and multiple amazing services for us. They were a venue, furniture provider, and catered a killer beach BBQ that all of our guests can’t stop raving about!”
The bride and bridesmaids got ready at Kaibo, while the guys arrived Cayman-style by way of boat.
“For a lot of our guests, it was their first time traveling to the islands so it was awesome to be able to show them what paradise truly embodies,” shares Jeremy. “They all loved the island and said they want to make this an annual trip!”
