This wedding right here?  It’s exactly the reason I love destination weddings.  The reason I can’t get enough of a laid back meets elegant, toes in the sand kind of affair.  It’s a picture perfect backdrop (aka, the Caribbean) with a bride and groom who are the epitome of stunning and enough gold accents to keep you smiling all year (it’s true).  And don’t even get me started on the gallery from Brosnan Photographic.  It’s pure genius… and you can see it all right here.

From Brosnan Photographic… Despite their families knowing each other for many years Natalie and Sal only met a few years ago until fate stepped in and Natalie was Sal’s good luck charm at the blackjack table! Both from the Chicago burbs they decided on a destination wedding to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Their wedding was held at Melia Caribe Tropical. They were married in the evening sun under the beach side gazebo with their dinner in the beach side grill overlooking the shoreline.
