Alina & Johnnie

This Dominican wedding was one of the most memorable trips I've ever been on...and it had nothing to do with the resort or the beach (which were gorgeous), and everything to do with the company. It's not very often that you get nearly 40 people to attend a destination wedding, but when you have a couple like Alina & Johnnie, it's very easy to see why their family and friends made the journey. They have one of those connections that you can feel as soon as you meet them...they radiate happiness and love in everything that they do.

During the ceremony, I'm pretty sure there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Alina looked stunning (STUNNING!) and I don't think Johnnie stopped smiling after he caught sight of his gorgeous bride.

The ceremony was full of the most heartfelt speeches, a special performance by the beautiful maid of honor accompanied by her awesome husband on the ukelele (yay Jessie & Chris!), and even some clothes swapping near the end of the night!! And no, you cannot see those pictures :o)

At the risk of sounding cheesy, the whole day was pretty magical, and I am honored to have been a part of it.

Ali & JB, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of this amazing week. You and your loved ones made me feel welcome from the very start, and I am so lucky to be able to call you friends.

The couple whispered their vows to each other...so cute!


So happy!
