The (brief) story of how you met/fell in love:
The story about how we met can be explained by one word, fate. It was through mutual friends that we managed to meet. When we first laid eyes on each other, it was more than a physical attraction but more of an instant unexplainable connection where we connected with each other. We would spend every possible moment together, make each other laugh, watch movies, and finish each other’s sentences. Ever since that day, we haven’t stopped loving each other and our love grew into this new chapter of our life and we couldn’t be any happier for this chapter to unfold.
The destination wedding decision: something you’ve always wanted or came to love?
Always wanted! We both love palm trees, turquoise waters and soft white sand.
What made you choose your resort/destination?
We visited 7 different resorts over 6 days! We saw the fountains at Now Larimar and fell in love.
How did you personalize your wedding and ceremony?
We decided our theme would be tropical elegance, and we incorporated it into every detail.
The funniest or most unusual moment was when….
The groom split his pants on the dance floor, and still kept the party going!
The most memorable moment was when….
We had our private first look prior to the start of the ceremony.
