Heather + Chris | Royalton Punta Cana Wedding

I’ve actually had this Royalton Punta Cana Destination Wedding lined to be blogged for a while now but have been struggling with the text portion of this post.  I’m not sure why, maybe it’s because it’s difficult to put such a special week into words.Bavaro Beach, Punta Cana WeddingHeather applied to my Destination Wedding contest last year and the moment I read her entry I knew this was a wedding I HAD to be a part of.  You see Heather & Chris have had a wild couple of years.  A whirlwind romance, Chris working away from home, Heather’s sweet & hilarious son, plus 2 more babies meant time together was rare & precious.  This was going to be a once in a lifetime vacation where their whole family could celebrate together and they were understandably SO EXCITED!
I wish I had space in this post to show you alllllll the photos but we’ll start with the actual wedding day.  Heather & Chris had a gorgeous first look & portrait session before heading off to tie the knot.  The wedding ceremony was originally planned for the beach but after seeing the secluded garden area Heather & Chris opted to move things there instead.  It was a beautiful, private, tropical oasis where their family & friends gathered to witness an intimate ceremony.  Many tears were shed and comic relief was provided by a cheeky peacock who seemed to squawk at just the right moment.  I cried when I read Heather’s letter, I cried throughout the wedding day, and I cried as I selected images for this blog.
We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at sunset, heard some moving speeches under the stars, then partied the night away on the sand.  It was pretty perfect.
Thank you so much to the Royalton Punta Cana & Breakaway Travel for making this trip so lovely & for helping create a magical wedding day.  Thank you to Heather & Chris for taking me with you – I hope you love your photos as much as I do.  Oh and if you missed Chris & the groomsmen’s Sports Illustrated style pre-wedding shoot check it out here -> Beach Boyzzzz.  Stay tuned for part 2 – their day after session!
