Erin & Christopher met while working together, but fell in love after going to a Paul Van Dyke show together and discovering their shared love of dancing and house music. Erin’s big beautiful blue-green eyes and angelic voice stole Christopher’s heart and he proposed on their vacation to Greece – on a white swing as the sun set over the water on the island of Mykonos. [Sigh] 🙂

These two truly are a team… When they are not watching sunsets, eating Cuban food, engaging in serious public displays of affection, traveling the world, or making each other laugh – they make music together (and are fantastic!)

They celebrated their Big Day at the Paradisus Punta Cana resort, along with over 50 of their loved ones, who brought a great party vibe. While Rob stopped by the boys room, I arrived to the Bridal Suite to find Erin impossibly stunning, wearing a very unique gown. So flattering and perfect for the beach! After a few finishing touches on her hair & make-up, Erin was ready to see her handsome lover for their ‘First Look.’ We decided to have them meet right in the Bridal Suite garden, to keep these precious moments private (and close to the refuge of air conditioning!) Erin & Christopher said their ‘i-do’s’ beneath an elegant beach gazebo, just before sunset. The romantic intimate reception was set up in The Reserve – I’m amazing at how the Paradisus ‘Romance’ staff can magically transform spaces to fit a wedding so well!

I love how Erin & Christopher can get lost in each other, oblivious to the world around them, even if for just a few moments. There were many such moments throughout the day. You might be surprised to know how many couples barely find time for each other on their wedding day, wrapped up in the day’s events and details. For Erin & Christopher, their deep love, longing & chemistry are like a magnetic force!

Erin & Christopher were such troopers and trusted us to meet the sunrise together for their Rock the Dress session. LOVE.

With love, here are some of our favourite memories from your wedding… much love from from Punta Cana! You are amazing together.

After a delicious dinner & speeches, Erin & Christopher’s hot-blooded friends and family got the party started! The couple fired things up with a beautifully executed Cuban salsa!

Up to meet the sunrise the next morning for a sexy Rock the Dress session.

There I am… starting work before the sun is up, in my bathing suit!
