Local police captain and veterinarian wed on tropical island

-A A +A

Warm ocean breezes added another pleasant layer to the marvelous memories two local adventurers brought back from their exotic wedding in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

“It really was perfect,” Veterinarian Shayna Whitaker said. “In fact, the entire week we spent in Jamaica was perfect.”

The only slightly imperfect fact about the trip, said Los Alamos Police Capt. Randy Foster, was that the couple’s luggage didn’t make the connection from Dallas. “We laughed it off saying we’d just get married in bathing suits,” he said during a recent interview.

The luggage arrived on their wedding day, Jan. 14, allowing the couple to marry in their elegant wedding attire at 3 p.m. on a pier above the Caribbean Sea.

Foster and Whitaker explained that they don’t typically do things in traditional ways. “Why should our wedding be any different,” Foster said laughing.

“We both like to travel and see new places and we really had a great time in Jamaica,” Whitaker said. “Also, both extended families are spread all over the place and it would have been difficult to get them all together for the wedding.”
