Nicole & Sam’s breathtaking beach wedding will be sending everyone out for a destination wedding! The water was SO blue and you can never go wrong with palm trees and bare feet in the sand. Their wedding was calm and beautiful and so elegant that it made me wonder why I didn’t do this myself 15 years ago!
This stunner of a wedding will go down as one of my all time favorites. These two were not only gorgeous and pretty much look like models but they were also some of the kindest people you’ll ever meet! Their entire group of guests were not much different either making it the sweetest time in the Dominican yet. Everywhere you turned was a picturesque spot and the Caribbean atmosphere is the best.
We started the day with photos in the hotel getting ready for both the bride and groom followed by some group pictures of their amazing guests. Guest who came all the way out to the DR to watch them tie the knot and be there to support them. The ceremony was next and was set up on the beach… you guys, it was breathtaking!!! It was so gorgeous that people were stopping and watching the ceremony still in their bathing suits. (Can I tell you how many men in Speedos I had to edit out? Haha! Not what you want to see when you’re looking at wedding photos ;) Even after the wedding people were coming over and taking photos with the set up. And how can you blame them!? I loved Sam’s face when he saw Nicole come down that sandy aisle! Their ceremony was fun and light hearted; full or smiles and laughter from everyone. After their first kiss everyone celebrated with champagne before heading out for photos on the beach and on the hotel grounds. Obviously, this is MY favorite part :) I have to say I was a little overwhelmed because I had so many photos I wanted to do! Kid in the candy store moment for sure! I’m pretty sure I delivered them over 100 photos form this time period alone but I couldn’t resist!! They were all so amazing! A sweet reception dinner was waiting afterwards followed by an amazing party within the palm trees. (Did you ever see a speaker plugged into a palm tree? I have!) They celebrated late into the night and will continue to celebrate their marriage forever! Congratulations to Nicole & Samvel!! Thank you so so much for allowing me to be a part of your big day!
