jill and nolan's punta cana wedding | destination wedding photography

Sunday, July 12, 2009

We have been looking forward to our trip to the Dominican Republic for Jill and Nolan's Destination Wedding for a very long time! We were thrilled when Jill contacted us to capture their day! Just last February we photographed her sister Jenelle's wedding. We were welcomed by their family with such open arms and this wedding was absolutely no exception. Jill and Nolan's closest friends and family gathered together for an intimate and fun wedding. Although there were only 50 people in attendance I believe I saw just as many smiles and hugs as you would see at a 500 person wedding. This was our first official beach wedding and it was wonderful!

We grabbed the boys real quick before heading over to the girls room. We needed shade and I loved the lines of this awning.

The gorgeous bride.

I love that Jill walked with both of her parents, as did Jenelle when she was married.

These sisters are the best at joyful tears! I love these girls!

Nolan's parents are obviously very happy.

The beautiful girls!

This was not my idea and I have to say that I was shocked that Jill agreed to it, lol! What a trooper!

Their first dance as man and wife.

Nolan and his mom sharing a moment.

Always an emotional dance for Jill's dad. It is so evident how much he cares for his children.

Obviously an extremely happy couple surrounded by so many who love them!

Congratulations Jill and Nolan! Thank you so much for allowing us photograph this amazing day! We hope that the two of you are enjoying your new lives together!

You've had some amazing locations and awesome brides! 3. We were actually in punta Cana from June 27th to july 3! Don't know if that's when u were there or not but there was a bride and half the plane was going for their wedding, flying out of cincy. The bride looked very similar..
