jellyfish punta cana wedding {nicole + tony}

October 8, 2015

This beautiful Couple and their wedding have become very special to us not only because Nicole & Tony treated us like family and put on one of the most soulful parties Jellyfish Punta Cana has seen – but also because I rocked their wedding at 36 weeks pregnant and it ended up being our last wedding before Zion came earth side, just one week later. Nicole & Tony are convinced it was the soca music that got him to want to come out and party early!

These sweethearts met through Nicole’s cousin who went to school with Tony; Nicole was 16 and he was 17. “We had been friends for about a year, but of course there was some flirting going on and I always thought he was cute”… admits Nicole. “He tried every way possible to get my phone number and eventually ended up giving me his number, on a gum wrapper.”  The rest is history…

“We love the beach and love how intimate destination weddings are… 

Also, Katya’s blog was a total give away to why one should have a destination wedding!”

Nicole on the Proposal:

“It was sweet… can’t believe it was 7 years ago! I was in my last year of college and just went on vacation with my family for almost 3 weeks in Trinidad and the day after I came back he proposed with friends and family from both our sides… I had no idea that it was coming or even suspected it… I guess he had really missed me, haha!”

“We really appreciate saying I love you to each other when we are leaving to go to work, when we hang up the phone, or just parting for a couple of hours… if one doesn’t say it… something’s up.”
