un-christmas. parents visit. {cap cana marina, juanillo beach}

December 29, 2011

Our first Christmas living in the Dominican Republic… we never had high hopes for Santa dropping by, so we didn’t bother putting up a tree. Or decorations. Due to our recent avid dedication to minimalism – no presents. BUT what never fails to make Christmas feel so special is family. My parents came to visit us here in Punta Cana for the first time. And I think they liked it! 🙂 You’ve seen enough beach pictures from our recent weddings, so here’s a little introduction to a side of Punta Cana not many get to see – the multi-million dollar project of Marina in the closed community of Cap Cana, some 20 minutes away from our home. I would imagine Monaco could look something like this?! What’s so interesting about this place is that it’s pretty well a stunningly still ghost town. No cute coffee shops, no one riding bikes or walking their dogs, no one eating ice cream or strolling along the pier, no vendors selling sea shells or tours. Perhaps this will all change in the years to come, but for now, we look forward to sneaking couples in love here for some beautiful sessions!

So Merry Christmas. Warm hugs to you!

My sweet parents!! 

My two favourite guys in the whole wide world!

And now, Cap Cana’s gorgeous Juanillo Beach! This must be one of my favourite photos of my parents. Ever.
