jacolby & synthia. secrets sanctuary cap cana. wedding.

October 21, 2011

Apparently, there are Mexican restaurants with karaoke nights in Georgia. Thank goodness for that, or Syn may not have fallen in love with Jacolby’s voice the way she did and realized he was the one!

It felt so special to be a part of their wedding, not only because they are such warm and fun people, but also because I got to create the memories with them in a very unique way – it was just the three of us!

I arrived early to scope out the surroundings and get a few ideas for their ‘first look’ – this rendered an impossible task… Everywhere you look, there are gorgeous colors, textures and light! I have to say, this resort is my favourite in Dominican Republic so far, there’s just such impeccable attention to detail! The musky-sweet seductive aroma of meticulously placed incense & oil lamps, seamless integration of mediterranean-inspired and modern architectural design, lush, vibrant, and imaginative landscaping, exceptional service… Secrets Sanctuary Cap Cana are serious about lulling around and romance! Check out this unbelievable view from their ‘balcony’…

Around the resort, picture-perfect.

First look on the Secrets Sanctuary Cap Cana terrace… Colby gets a polaroid picture taken of his beautiful bride moments before!

How stunning is this view? I loved that the resort uses this magnificent private suite for more intimate ceremonies… Hm, a heated romatic pool in your bathroom AND your living room – let that be the toughest choice you would have to make 🙂 

Stylish Blue Marlin Restaurant on the Cap Cana shore… Love! 

Last but not least, the beach at dusk…

Jacolby & Syn, wishing you a lifetime of love. And hope to see you back to Punta Cana for Intimate Portraits for your anniversary! 🙂

    Katya, we absolutely love these pictures! You did such an amazing job. We can’t wait to see the rest. Thank you so much for putting so much time and heart into our special day. It was such a pleasure working with you. We talk about you often. You were a joy to hang out with. If the opportunity were to arise we would definitely love to come back for anniversary pics 🙂 ….and meet Rob.

    Thanks again, Jacolby and Synthia

    PS….We wanted you to know we took the link off our Facebook page due to several comments we received about the bedroom pics and becuase some of our Facebook friends are older (religious). We love them….even have one picked out to frame for our bedroom. We didn’t want to remove the link but needed to prevent drama. Thanks again. So excited about our pics 🙂
