hard rock punta cana wedding. {thalita + jack}

August 25, 2013

Thalita showed up at a house party Jack hosted with his roommates, like a breath of fresh air. They talked and talked, and by the end of the night Jack was the one to call her a cab. As Thalita got into the car, Jack said to the driver: ‘Take care of this girl, I’m going to marry her one day.’ Ahhhhhh!

After some light modern-day flirting on Facebook and over text messages, they ran into each other in Hermosa Beach, California, and Thalita agreed to come over and spend some time with him… there might have been a memorable first kiss… they moved in together shortly after, and three years later Jack asked for her hand.

Jack’s proposal plan involved setting up a romantic sunset picnic on the cliffs in Palos Verdes. ‘I must’ve pulled it out 1400 times just to make sure I didn’t lose it or that it magically disappeared from my closet,’ Jack remembers.

Jack even hired a photographer to stalk them from a distance and document the entire thing. It wasn’t long before Thalita noticed. ‘I think that girl is taking pictures of us,’ she kept telling Jack. ‘I had to think on my feet and keep brushing it off and talking about anything and kissing her,’ Jack laughs. With trembling hands, he popped the bottle of champagne and poured Thalita a glass, as she said ‘Babe, this girl is DEFINITELY taking pictures of us, should I say something?’ There was no more holding off.

‘I went for it, I reached in the bag and with my heart thumping I utterted “Uhh, while I’m down here” … I couldn’t believe those words came out of my mouth but it was too late, I had to save face and get a grip… I pulled out the box, hit one knee and looked her dead in the eyes … “Will you marry me?” Thalita’s eyes instantly filled up first with tears of surpise and joy.

Here’s their perfect Hard Rock Punta Cana wedding… Thalita & Jack – you are SUCH amazing people and are so great together!! Don’t ever lose your zest for life! xoxo

‘Thalita’s smile and laugh are one of the most important things to my life. I always refer to her as my ‘blue sky’ for that very reason, anytime I’m down she can always make me feel on top of the world.’

‘Her lips and her warmth drive me crazy. She is the sexiest woman in the world in my eyes.’

Favourite things to find in the fridge: ‘champagne, chocolate, and left over italian.’

‘Thalita is so thoughtful. Last year for my 30th, she gave me 30 gifts. I was came home from work and was blown away, she went all out for me. I had 30 letters from friends and family, wishing me a happy birthday. The room was filled with 29 other gifts. Amazing.’

    I love this option. I am looking at getting married in Punta Cana 2015 and feel these movies are so much more moving and touching than photos…. I do want both however, I would love this option….. was this arranged through the hotel or did you source a third party vendor?
