ryan & alicia, destination punta cana

Here is my most recent bride and groom, Ryan and Alicia! I was thrilled to be a part of their big day in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. What a fabulous destination for a wedding. The beach sparkled and was absolutely amazing. No rocks, no shells, no coral. What a perfect backdrop for a couple days to hang with Ryan, Alicia, and their families. WOW, I am blessed!
The wedding day started with loads of beautiful pictures outside and taking advantage of the great location. Unfortunately right before the wedding the rain came down and ceremony location was quickly changed! Have no fear ... rain or shine, we still get great images! After the initial stress of changing the plan, everything came together and was beautiful.
I just love the image of Ryan and Alica below. It was just as the ceremony was starting, right after they first saw each other. You can just feel the their emotions through that picture, Ryan's expression just melts the heart ... and then poof ... the next image a few seconds later, no tears, only smiles!!!!
Later that evening we took advantage of the great architecture at the hotel and got "arty!!!" (Happy leg kicks all over the place!!!) Thank you guys for trusting me and letting me join in the fun of your vacation wedding celebration. I truly enjoyed getting to know you and your families better. I had the best time and can't wait for our next photo session. At the beach, lake, or in Minneapolis ... I'm there. All the best, Em
