The First Encounter

The morning of my wedding I woke up with two of my best friends and we were surprised by breakfast in bed thanks to my mother in law



In Preparation

The morning of my wedding I woke up with two of my best friends and we were surprised by breakfast in bed thanks to my mother in law. I was very relaxed and excited and just ready to marry my high school sweetheart. I went to get my hair and makeup done with my bridesmaids at the salon in the Hilton. We all went back to the bridal suite and got all the finishing touches completed and were ready to walk down the aisle.



The Big Day

My wedding day was almost perfect, and I only say almost because of my brother, who was walking me down the aisle, was late because of his flight. As a little girl you always dream of your wedding and how it’s suppose to go and I can honestly say it went exactly like I wanted it to. The weather and ceremony was absolutely beautiful and the Hilton did an amazing job with the reception. From the decor to the food it was all done perfect. We danced and partied the night away with our friends and families.



The Retreat

We chose to spend our honeymoon in the Dominican Republic (Punta Cana). Our honeymoon was definitely our favorite part about the wedding, it was finally time for it to be just us with white sand beaches and beautiful blue water surrounding us. The staff at the resort was very accommodating and the resort was also amazing. We loved the Dominican Republic so much, it was a perfect ending to our wedding.
