kerry + bill. {paradisus palma real wedding, punta cana }

March 11, 2012

Kerry & Bill were set up by a mutual friend at a blues bar in Chicago. One eventful night less then a year later, Kerry got allured to visit her brother’s office, where Bill waited with champagne, flowers, her favourite Frank Sinatra disc and … a breathtaking engagement ring. Their friends say that Kerry is like a ‘female version’ of Bill … what we were so honoured to experience was how genuine, kind-hearted, funny, patient and giving they are. As soon as dinner was served, Kerry gobbled down a few bites and got up to visit with nearly every guest, from table to table, to make sure they were having a great time. If it’s about the little things, Kerry does them with such impressive grace. And Bill, Kerry is so lucky to have you too!

Their Paradisus Palma Real wedding was exceptional. Kerry got her very own bridal suite with a private ‘garden’ and pool, where all her beautiful bridesmaids joined her and where we brought Bill for their ‘first look.’

Big ‘thank you’ to their wedding planner, Massiel, for the perfect reception and Pastor Rick York for the beautiful ceremony.

The day started by cooling off in the pool of the bridal suite with our beautiful Kerry… we knew it must only go up from here! 

These Valentino  flip flops are spectacular… I would’ve never thought ‘Valentino’ + ‘flip flops’ go together, but apparently it’s a piece of art! Kerry saw these in a window of a boutique months and months ago and knew they would be perfect…

And Dad arrives to check on the girls… this is making me emotional – maybe because I can’t wait for my dad to walk me down the aisle in just a few short weeks!

The ‘first look’ at the Paradisus Palma Real bridal suite… 

Rob hard at work behind the scenes! The sun was high at 3 pm and it was so… scorching hot. Here’s Rob, making shade!

One of my faves of the day…

Moving on to a delicious cocktail hour  &

There was special lighting set up for a party outside – we snuck Kerry & Bill out there for a few frames!
