Shelby and Jake

Friday, October 8, 2021 at 5pm






Our travel agent requested that we write an introduction for our website. As most of you know, Shelby is in hog heaven planning everything wedding related by herself. However, this intro is different… Shelby wanted nothing to do with writing it. For those of you who haven’t quite figured it out yet- this is my (Jake) only wedding responsibility aside from showing up. No pressure.

Hey everybody! Shelby and I are doing the whole “you may kiss the bride” thing October 8th, 2021 in Montego Bay, Jamaica! If you’re reading this, then you are invited to join us for the big day! However! If you have any intention of objecting during the ceremony, murdering one or both of us, or hate having a good time with a beautiful view, you are hereby uninvited. If you have read this far and are still invited – We cannot wait to have a blast with you in Jamaica!  See you there!

(The future Mrs. Carstens approves this message. Mostly because this was Jake’s 8th Draft and I didn’t foresee it getting any better lol)

Stacey is our dedicated travel agent for our wedding group.  If you have any questions, concerns or just want to hear more about the options available, please feel free to reach out to her directly.  She will be the point of contact for booking your stay at Sandals Montego Bay and can also assist with your flights, transfers, add-on activities, travel insurance and more. 

Sandals Montego Bay

Spanning the best private, white-sand beach in Jamaica, this playful and romantic resort is where the world first fell in love with Sandals.

Travel protection can be added to your package at the cost of the $114.00 per person.  Insurance is highly recommended as travel suppliers, airlines and resorts often charge fees for trip change/cancellation after the deposit payment has been made. Dreams and Destinations Travel Agency is not responsible for penalties or fees should you change or cancel your trip and highly recommends purchasing the insurance. A pamphlet outlining the policy coverage can be provided.  Please contact Stacey to request.  The cost of insurance is nonrefundable and insurance policies are non-transferable. In many cases the cost of insurance is less than the cost of penalties for cancellation.

Please include the $114 per person cost of the travel insurance with the $200 per person deposit amount if you’d like to purchase the travel protection.
