“We knew we wanted to go somewhere tropical,” the couple told Entertainment Tonight about their honeymoon. “With our busy travel schedules, we didn’t want to travel too far. Jamaica seemed to have everything we wanted, with only a couple of short flights to get there.”
The couple officially tied the knot a few months ago on October 6. Due to their busy schedules, they decided to hold off on the honeymoon for a few months until work started to slow down.
“Our ‘off’ season is in December,” the couple shares. “Rather than try to squeeze in a honeymoon right after our wedding, we decided to wait until we knew we both could really unplug and properly celebrate.”
In addition to celebrating their love, the couple will also get some well deserved rest. Pearce and Ray plan to take full advantage of the break they have from their busy schedules to relax and spend time with each other.
“The best part has been just being able to have no schedule and truly spend quality time together,” they share. “We haven’t had a lot of that this year, so it has been so great for us.”
The newly weds play to spend this special time together with excursions and activities like tanning, swimming, and horseback riding in the ocean. Pearce will also be crossing one item off her bucket list as the couple stays in an over-the-water-bungalow.
“It has been [on] a bucket list for me since I’m such a The Bachelor/The Bachelorette fan to stay in one of those [bungalows],” Pearce gushes. “Of course Michael made it happen!”
After the couple returns home from their honeymoon, they'll continue to celebrate their new life together as a married couple. Their new life means new traditions, especially when it comes to Christmas time.
“We know that we want to always prioritize our families during this time,” Pearce and Ray share. “But, we are both looking forward to making traditions and moments within our new little family.”
They add, “We truly waited to find the right person. It feels so special to be entering into the greatest chapter of our lives.”
