Welcome to the destination part of our wedding! This is Part 2! We decided on the ease of a destination wedding since we do have a lot of family and friends and we are busy people.
The decision on the location was made the day we were engaged by simply telling Ryan there was a casino at the resort I was researching, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana. This part was a breeze for me, I just had to answer a few questions and the wedding planner took care of everything else!
There were a few bumps along the way with people forgetting to get passports in time, airline ticket prices sky rocketing and all the other joys of traveling out of country.
We had forty of our closest family and friends traveling to meet us throughout the week starting on Tuesday and the last two arriving on Friday. It was a big party for the week and everyone got along swimmingly.
(Proof you can take a selfie on a water camera. Real film was developed here people.)
The day of was a breeze, our wedding planner was amazing!! We got married at 11 am on the beach on Saturday, May 6, 2017. Our family friend, Rich, did our ceremony. He was hilarious!
The reception followed at noon and there was one oops. I forgot my phone in my room with the playlist for the reception so my dad and sister went to grab it for me. Then we realized I forgot to tell them I had an iPhone 7 so they didn’t have the right connection. Lucky us, none of our friends go without their phones. Our friend Steven had an iPhone that could connect to the sound system, so I shared the playlist with him and we were good to go!
After the reception, it was to the pool! We pretty much consumed the whole thing, but it was a blast! Yes I was still wearing my flower crown!
Again, thank you to everyone that was able to join us on this journey and I hope y’all are ready for the next one!
