MarieSam's Pro Pic Akumal Wedding *Teasers* ~ by Stephanie Williams Photography!

Recommended Posts

Tommy and I have been smitten by the pics taken by friends and family (which I will eventually post in my reviews) but when I saw our wedding blogged on our photographer's website today ... I cried ... Like a baby wink.gif

 

I can't help it I’m a cornball and in love with my teasers hehehe ~ they remind me of how happy I was and how blessed we were to have had such a perfect day full of love, life, family and friends. But like a cherry on top of a delicious tres leches wedding cake, we also had THE BEST photographers in Stephanie and Isaac, who served as our eyes on the most wonderful day of our lives. To see more of their uber fab work check out their blog, it's fantastic: Stephanie Williams Photography Blog wedding and portrait photography blog

 

And now, without further adieu ...about 40 photos accompanied with some notes on lessons learned and advice for your big day wink.gif *the link to our photoblog can be seen here: http://stephaniewilliamsphotography....tommy-wedding/

*ALERT* Makeup tip – USE waterproof glue for your lashes. My left lash (as you can see in the pic) started falling from the humidity, so my stylist redid it with waterproof glue and I was all fixed in time for the ceremony!

You are gorgeous girl! I love your colored shoes, your wedding colors, and the amazing job Jennifer Smith did coordinating your wedding.

 

It looks like you had fans for your guests. Did everyone use them?

 

I love the pictures of Charlie. My WC used him too.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
