Dreams Punta Cana Destination Wedding - Dominican Republic - Marisa + Angelo

Where do I even begin!? We were so honored when Marisa and Angelo approached us to celebrate and document their love during their destination wedding at Dreams Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.  To be chosen for such a wonderful opportunity was like a dream come true. What could be better than doing your dream job, in a dream location? Sand, sun, beach, love, commitment, celebration! It was truly amazing. 

Marisa, who is originally from Ohio, and Angelo who is living in New York, met in Dominican republic a few years back. Since this place held such a special significance for them and their relationship, they decided to return there to vow their love to one another. The ceremony was beautifully intimate. Close friends and family surrounded the couple, as the waves crashed behind them, and the soft sandy beach rested beneath their feet.  It was clearly evident through the happy tears, the heartfelt hugs, and the cheerful laughter that both families held great love in their hearts for the couple - both of them truly treasured. Marisa and Angelo's first dance was a bachata,  and once open dancing began  everyone was joining in the celebration of culture, love and commitment.
