A few years back, a spring getaway took me to the white sands, lush greens and turquoise blues of Punta Cana. And it was every bit as gorgeous as Brushfire Photography captured it in this relaxed and intimate beach soiree. It’s a destination where the scenery trumps the details and the result couldn’t be prettier. This gallery my dears, is sure to sweep you off your sandy feet.

From Brushfire Photography… Ali and Karl planned a relaxing wedding at Playa Bavaro in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Fifty of their closest friends and family met them at the gorgeous Majestic Elegance for a week of relaxation on the beach.

Great weddings films are always the cherry on top to a most perfect day. They’re those dearest memories you pull out and show your children and grandchildren, years after the “I do” has been said. And when you’ve got filmmakers like Imagination Designers on the job? Well, you better believe they’re going to craft something truly special. Just have a peek at their latest wedding work of art and just try to make it through with a dry eye. I dare you!

… What could be better than filming a wedding in the Dominican Republic? Doing it with a hundred of the kindest, craziest, most wonderful people you could ever hope to meet, of course! Natalie and Sal are so adorable together, that you can’t help but wish the very best of “Happily Ever After” for them. So it was extremely fitting that their destination wedding at Melia Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana wasn’t just one amazing day, it was (in true Italian fashion) an entire week spent in celebration with their family and friends… and we are so lucky we got to come along for the ride.
From the beautiful resort, to the simple and elegant decor, right down to the beautiful stationary personally crafted by the bride, their wedding day was a picture perfect way to bring two families who had known each other forever together to celebrate. A big thank you goes out to the bride’s cousin and a fantastic photographer, Christina Brosnan as well as Kelly Sauer for being so wonderful to work with!

If ever there was a place primed for a perfect destination wedding…I’m pretty sure St. Thomas would be it. Because you need next to nothing to make your celebration spectacular. And while this bride layered on the turquoise and coral touches – inspired from the beaches themselves – the backdrop alone was enough for us to fall in love.

From the bride…We were going for a vintagey-beachy, relaxed elegance kind of vibe. We went with a lot of turquoise blue (bridesmaid dresses, mason jars for the ceremony aisle & the centerpieces, mother of the bride dress & turquoise gingham cocktail umbrellas I got from France) and coral (my shoes, troy’s socks & tie, the flowers, the ringbearers ties, the flower girls flower crowns, cocktail straws, matchbooks, the lace & burlap table runners and really pale peachy flowers on my dress). Basically, I went crazy on etsy. I actually didn’t realize how vintage-y my dress and hair looked until I saw your pictures. I loved how it all came together! It was a last minute to decision to have the flower girls & ringbearers barefoot for the wedding. I loved the kids playing in the water during & right after the wedding.
Music is also really important to me so that’s why we had the guitar player for the wedding (I walked down the aisle to “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers). We also had a steal drum player for the cocktail hour & dj for the reception. Our wedding song was “I Got You” by Jack Johnson.
Since my guests were coming a long way & using up vacation time to come to my wedding, I wanted them to have as great a time as possible. So that’s why we also had a welcome party the night before and a beach party the day after the wedding. Lots of great food & great drinks by Passion Fruit caterers for all 3 events.
