March 28, 2012

Siobhan & Nick met at a hockey game. They sat beside each other, then reconnected at a bar a few weeks later. Sparks flew and 3 1/2 years later, here they are, celebrating their wedding at the stunning Paradisus Palma Real in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic! I just loved all the meticulously chosen details Siobhan thought of for her Big Day – especially the colourful robes for all her bridesmaids! She got ready at the bridal suite in the Reserve and we headed to Jesus al Maestro Catholic church for the ceremony. Their elegant cocktail hour at Gabi Beach was followed by a beautiful reception – here’s the day in our favourite images!

This might just be one of my favourite wedding gown shots! Rob connected two hangers together to make a hook. Paradisus Palma Real bridal suite! 

Siobhan surprised her girls with these colourful robes…

Beautiful ceremony at Jesus al Maestro, Bavaro.

Back to the beautiful gardens at Paradisus Palma Real…

Gabi Beach is a spectacular cocktail hour spot… Delicious food and beautiful music! This Dominican Trio takes requests, too!

    These pictures are incredible! I am looking to book my wedding at Paradisus Palma Real and hoping to use the catholic church nearby as well. This is so inspirational. One of the first times I have seen a wedding executed in a classy, stylized way that wasn’t cheesy tropical. I love it! Great photos!

    Hi Siobhan.. I absolutely love your wedding pics. I recently got engaged and came across your website while i was looking for wedding ideas. I actually want to have my wedding at the Paradisus Palma Real Resort because it have such a lavish feel to it. Can you give me some inform on who helped you plan your wedding at the resort? also, wanted to know if you had a hard time having your ceremony at a church?

    Wow these photos are great! I am getting married at the Gabi Beach restaurant in the Paradisus Palma Real on April 12th. Does your photography company work with the resort. They only gave us one company to choose from which we have NOT booked yet.

    Is there a way for me to find out the designer of these bridesmaid dresses and the printed robes?
