hard rock punta cana wedding. {isabella + luke}

September 9, 2013

Isabella’s beauty is of the kind that inspires poetry. This woman is a Goddess! She’s also incredibly gentle, intuitive, caring, and kind. (Luke, you are rad too!) 🙂 I love that she found us through Instagram, while browsing images of Hard Rock Punta Cana resort! Thanks to staying connected on Instagram, I was honoured to get a glimpse of exactly how amazing she is. Isabella, I hope you don’t mind that I share this, because you’re such an inspiration!

In honour of the 26 lives recently lost in the Connecticut school shooting, Isabella committed to doing 26 random Acts of Kindness and began sharing these on Instagram. Among these deeds are: donating to a family in need that she’s never met; putting lottery tickets into strangers’ mailboxes; at a bookstore, leaving enough money inside a book cover of her favourite novel; and even treating her little niece’s entire school class to a pizza party. If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is. Check out the hashtag #26actsofkindness and see for yourself… I’m really inspired to do something like this too (maybe on our upcoming trip to India) – paying it forward!

What a wicked group of friends and family came down to celebrate with Luke & Isabella… they really know how to party! Hard Rock is the best resort in Punta Cana to pull all-nighters dancing, and these guys met the sunrise a few times during their wedding week.

Luke’s mom performed the ceremony on the beach and did something non-traditional and quite extraordinary – she asked all the guests to stand up and form a circle around Luke & Isabella, holding hands. What a beautiful moment that was!

Our favourite moment, however, was lingering on the beach at sunrise with Isabella & Luke. It was like they walked off a magazine cover and right into our frames!

… Here’s their amazing Big Day and sunrise Rock the Dress, through our eyes.

Isabella & Luke… you two are amazing! Sweetest wishes to you, for a lifetime of blissful togetherness! 🙂
