Destination: Punta Cana! Tommy + Nikki "Tie the Knot" in the D.R.


IMG_9420-1 Okay, so I'm a little biased with this one... our dear friends invited us to come out to the Dominican Republic to film and photograph their wedding.* They would tie the knot at the Iberostar Bavaro resort in Punta Cana.  The soft, white sandy beaches of the Dominican Republic provided a breathtaking setting - I mean, I really didn't think water could be that color turquoise unless it was Photoshopped. This was our first destination wedding but I certainly hope it won't be our last! I've known Tommy for about as long as I've known his sister, one of my best friends (and Matron of Honor) Maddie. Tommy is a gem of a guy. Their whole family is among the kindest, most supportive people I've ever had the pleasure to know. And the first time I met Nikki - I'll never forget - I couldn't get over her gorgeous hair and big smile! She's the kind of girl that lights up a room and the kind of girl you immediately want to be friends with. You can't help but notice that in their highlight reel.

So my husband Chris and I spent the week eating, beaching, filming, and witnessing two families become one. I have to give Chris credit - he shot nearly all of the video you'll see (I was taking photos). I don't think I've ever had quite as much fun putting together a wedding video as I have this time. Please enjoy the highlight reel of the beautiful newlyweds, inside and out, Tommy + Nikki:
