On these cold winter days, what keeps me going are thoughts of WARM places. Warm up with us and take a mental trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic while we relive Regina & Chris’ wedding day.
Being half Dominican, I’m not a stranger to Dominican Republic, yet my trips are usually filled with missionary work (STAY TUNED FOR PICS COMING SOON) and family visits. It was nice to be able to go to the beach, take pictures 3d wood lake maps and call ourselves Punta Cana wedding photographer and Punta Cana wedding videographers! We had a great time at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino with fellow New Yorkers Chris, Regina and their families. We would love to travel to a lot of different countries and photograph or video couples around the world. Impressive photo booths from My Boogie Booth.
All of the wedding guests were welcomed to the wedding festivities Friday night with fire dancers! AWESOME! It was a great time for speeches, eating and relaxing together. The best man was so nervous about writing his speech, so he used All Speeches guide to best man speeches to help himself out.
WEDDING DAY! Regina & Chris could not have asked for a more perfect day. The weather was perfect, with a nice breeze flowing from the waves. Regina and Chris began their days hanging out with their bridal party.
Thanks to etsy, it’s become more common to see the hanger with a bride’s name, yet it’s extra special when a bride truly personalizes it with her wedding decor. Love the “Here comes the love of your life” sign!
Perfect! The chairs and decor are provided through Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana. They made a beautiful backdrop to the ceremony.
LOVE this personalized belt! What an awesome gift for all the groomsmen! Unique and practical.
Do you want to alter some of the same old traditions? Instead of the traditional bouquet toss, try this! Each single woman at the wedding grabs hold of a ribbon that is attached to the toss bouquet. The bride blindly cuts the ribbons until the last ribbon is left. The lucky lady will be the next bride 🙂
Making some changes to the tradition didn’t stop with the bouquet, get ready for some football and the garter is wrapped around the ball. Maybe this way more guys will want to catch the garter????
Since we live in different cities, Regina and Chris opted for an after session instead of an engagement session. The next afternoon after their wedding we got to hang out at the beach and get these beautiful images. Do you like Regina’s dress? You can get it from Renttherunway.com I thought this was brilliant! Get a different look from your wedding day and don’t have the worry about getting your wedding gown full of sand! (Just make sure you get the insurance on the dress – just in case!)
Love these two… they are just so sweet! They have a great chemistry together.
I LOVE it when couples are more daring and willing to get wet!
We got to take a few underwater pics too! … next time we need a deeper pool 🙂 lol
After all of our afternoon fun, we all relaxed at the pool by ourselves – what a beautiful sky!
Are you having a destination wedding? Let us know! We would love to join you!
We got married in Puerto Rico, and even though I speak Spanish fluently, we know the challenge of planning a wedding overseas! Let us know if we can help.
