This dreamy tropical destination wedding comes to us from Asia Pimentel Photography! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:

My husband proposed in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on a cruise ship. It was beautiful, romantic, and fitting after a six year relationship. It was destiny that when I began planning our wedding I automatically knew that I would be a destination bride.

See more after the cut!

I wanted to celebrate our romance for an entire week, instead of just one day. After a great deal of deliberation, I came across the Jellyfish Restaurant in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in various blogs. I guess you could say it was love at first sight. The Jellyfish is such a unique venue which allowed us to enjoy the sea breeze, the shade of the gorgeous palm trees, the turquoise ocean backdrop, and the beautiful architecture that it boasts.

Another thing I knew was that I wanted a small wedding, contained to our most intimate family members and friends. I began planning my wedding with Val’s Weddings and I can say that all of my wildest wishes came true. I wed my love on May 5th, 2015. Stepping into my own wedding was absolutely surreal. It was ethereal, laid back, rustic, yet glam at the same time.
