The last wedding of 2011 at the stunning Paradisus Punta Cana. Amy & Ali were a blast!! We were really excited to document their wedding here because Paradisus Punta Cana had initially been our first choice for our own wedding. What a special place. This would also be the largest destination wedding we’ve seen (around 80 guests) and truly a testament to Amy & Ali’s amazing nature… In their presence, right from the start we felt as if we had known them for ages (just look on and see for yourself, especially from some ‘getting ready’ snapshots)! These two really know how to have fun AND have impeccable taste.
Amy is so gentle and sweet; her smile lights up the whole world. Ali would do anything for good laugh… and they both have a knack for making people feel very special. Now add their love of dancing and Ali’s romantic genius and without a doubt, these two have the magic formula.
What romantic genius? Just listen to this. One night, on the way to ‘dinner,’ Ali said he forgot something at home and they need to make a quick stop. Amy kept him company and came in for a moment… When they walked in, Amy realized that Ali “had turned his apartment into an indoor picnic! He had champagne chilling, lots of candles and white lights. He even had the red checkered picnic blanket and a picnic basket.” (She was so surprised and loved it so much that she cried.)
Without further ado, here are Amy & Ali. Happy New Year and warmest wishes! xoxoxoxo

And another one of my favourites…
And another! Some groomsmen really do go the extra mile 🙂
How about one-handed push-ups? That’s the spirit.
My signature pearls often end up on our couples. Rawr, tiger.

This Paradisus Punta Cana gazebo is still my absolute favourite of all ceremony spots we’ve seen.
