Fred & Angie Destination Wedding - Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana, Dominican Republic - Lisa Hughes Photography
I met Fred & Angie through a mutual friend and was able to meet with the two of them back in September 2015. Right away I felt such a great vibe and suddenly knew the two of them would make for a memorable week. As the months past, we chatted here and there and the days were approaching. I met the two of them, including all 25 of their guest at the Toronto Pearson airport and we all loaded up on the plane to finally take off to the beautiful 5 star resort of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic!
Right away it was all laughs. Fred and Angie made all of us matching t-shirts..even for me! I felt so special and already apart of the crew. As we landed and stepped of the plane, we were hit with a massive amount of heat and knew we were in the right place.
A few stops on the bus to different resorts to drop off others here and there till we finally pulled into the most beautiful and eye striking place. We were at the HARD ROCK RESORT AND CASINO! As as photographer off on her first destination wedding, I felt lucky enough to be doing it with a great group..however, to be able to capture it all at one of the top resorts in Dominican Republic made it that much better. From the lobby, to the hallways, to our rooms and every single restaurant we ate at. It was unbelievable. There were 18 pools spread throughout the resort and down to every single fine detail was not forgotten about. We even all went to a spa one day.
When their day finally came, the sun was shining and we all couldn't have hoped for better weather. Although very hot, we started off the day with the girls getting ready at the spa and the guys relaxed in their rooms. The love filled the beach as Ang walked down the isle and Fred saw her for the first time. She looked just beautiful. Following the ceremony we photographed the family, bridal party and I took the two of them out on our own to do some of their own shots. As you can tell from all the photographs from start to finish..we sure had some laughs..from Fred in Angie's thong..too all the guys at the end of the night Magic Mike'in it on the bar top (photo not shown :P). IT sure was a fun filled day.
Two days after, on a early morning at 6:00 AM. I took Fred & Ang out to do some Trash the Dress shots. Again, another beautiful day..the beach was so quiet. It worked out perfectly!! To cap the week off, we all went to dinner at a steakhouse. I again couldn't have asked for a better crew, truly.
I really want to thank the both of you for choosing me to be that person to capture such a incredible day. It was absolute pleasure. Thank you and I wish you both truly all the best! <3
