From the start, Ash & Robin knew that they wanted a wedding that expressed their love of travel, the outdoors, warm sunny weather and relaxation! After all, both brides were busy in school completing their PhD's so a December destination wedding in the Dominican Republic was the perfect way to unwind and begin their lives together.
Ash & Robin began planning and preparing for their wedding over a year in advance, the ideal timeline for planning a destination wedding. Although a destination wedding can be planned on the fly; having time to prepare, seeing the site in advance and finalizing a guest count is key. Luckily, Ash & Robin had been to Paradisus Punta Cana Resort previously and adored it, so choosing to get married there was easy! They could easily daydream about their afternoon garden ceremony, sunset photos and poolside reception after having stayed there previously.
With the venue booked, the next step was choosing vendors. The beautiful brides-to-be choose Susie & Will Photography from Las Vegas to accompany them during their week in paradise. Susie and Will beautifully captured the radiant glow of Ash & Robin and the modern, romantic aesthetic of the day. You can feel the love of these two in every photo ! ♥
The couple wanted to be sure their florals were picture perfect. They choose silk "forever floral” bouquets, boho floral crown's and the bridal parties bouquet/boutonnieres from Kendon Design Co. These faux bouquets and crowns are absolutely stunning pieces of artwork that the couple will keep as a memory of the day forever!
The decor for the garden ceremony and evening poolside reception featured beautiful linens, real banana leaf floral arrangements, and glowing zig-zag bistro lights. The effect was straight out of a magazine! The beautiful day concluded with sunset photos and a moonlit dance party.
It was an absolute pleasure helping Ash & Robin plan their wedding! We met these vibrant and beautiful women a few years ago while planning a wedding for a family member of Ash. It has been so wonderful to follow along with this love story and an honor to help Ash & Robin plan their wedding.
