Time for another beautiful Jellyfish wedding… meet Lisa & Jay, from New Jersey. I almost said ‘all the way from New Jersey’, but then – I’ve been posting couples all the way from Russia, so NJ seems a hop & skip away!

You may remember these lovebirds from a very special sunrise Rock the Dress (trash the dress) session here, and this a look at their wedding day. I love the blue & turquoise decor with seahorses Lisa & Mayte dreamt up!

It was a perfect day – but what stands out most is Lisa & Jay’s ‘First Look’… Now, it’s always an emotional and touching moment that makes amazing pictures, but this one made both Mike and I tear up (sorry Mike! :)) Look on and see what I mean. There is so much history, some ups & downs, and a lot of effort & planning that ‘two halves of a whole’ have to live through to arrive at this moment… all of it seems to hover over a moment that is the ‘First Look,’ in the anticipation of laying eyes on each other, clasping hands and embracing. Coming together as one.

Lisa & Jay – you are such a special couple… warmest congratulations!!

Mayte busying around and taking care of last minute touches before Lisa walks into the room!

First Look – let it speak for itself! 

Before the guests arrive, an intimate portrait session before the ceremony.

Ceremony – Pastor York amazing as always!! 

Even a quick tropical rain… 

I never get tired of this beautiful venue, Jellyfish is the best wedding restaurant in Punta Cana!!

What a great idea for wedding favours. A bottle of rum for each guest!

Finally, let me treat you to a few ‘behind the scenes’ moments of the incredible dinner!
