From the Bride…Washington, DC – world’s melting pot – is where a girl from Peru met a guy from New York and their happily ever after began. On May 5th 2016, Jack proposed at top of Huayna Picchu, located in the Cusco Region, after a beautiful hike up. He proposed with the ring that his father gave to his mother when he proposed in 1968. It was beautiful! More than I ever dreamed it would be!
My now Husband and I love to get away, be in the sun- and we figured what better way to celebrate our marriage than surrounded by our family, friends, and the warm culture of the Dominican Republic. We were told 30% of invites don’t come through to destinations weddings, and much to our pleasure we had a 90% return rate on acceptances and over 100 guests. Family and friends from New York, Washington DC, and Peru.
The day itself, was so much fun to be able to do the bridal get-ready suite, the last-minute details from flowers to my 6 year old niece’s flower basket, all in the context of the Caribbean sea and a resort where everyone was having fun. Jack swam out to a reef with his best friend from college/high school the day of our wedding (and even returned!!) and my mother in law played tennis and swam until it was time for hair and make-up. When getting married here, we enjoyed a beautiful view of turquoise colored waters, white sand beaches, and beautiful sunsets. This location was picture perfect! For us, warm tropical weather and an ocean view created the perfect setting. In fact, everything about this location in general is romantic in nature. I wanted a classic and romantic feel, soft muted neutrals with lots of greenery, and the backdrop for our ceremony was the beautiful Caribbean Sea, couldn’t have asked for a better setting.
