Daniel & Dara- Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

The location… Punta Cana… wow. It looks like a screensaver slideshow. The beautiful blue skies and gorgeous teal waters. Breathtaking.

The couple… when I first talked to Dara… I knew I loved her. Her and Daniel’s relationship sounded so carefree and comfortable… yet they were serious about the commitment they were making to each other. And, after the wedding… I have just fallen deeper in love. What an amazing group of people. They made us feel like friends and part of the crew. Loved meeting everyone there.

The wedding… so many beautiful thought out details. You will see Daniel and Dara’s “Love is in the Air” theme traced throughout the day. And I have to mention the emotions on this day. So precious. I cried three times dang it… and I am not a super sappy person!

Thanks D & D. It was such a blast. We feel honored and blessed that you flew us out to capture your day.

Here are a few (well maybe more than a few) of my favorites…

The entire wedding was at the Paradisus Resort.

Look at these awesome details… Serendipity Beyond Design put together the invites. Dara and Daniel’s friends helped with their welcome book, tumbler, etc.

Our friend Helen from Modern Events coordinated their day… and also put together these bouquets. A woman with many talents 🙂
