An Island Dream Wedding | Erin & James' Dominican Republic Wedding

I'm so excited to share Erin and James' amazing island wedding! They chose the Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana for their weekend wedding and let me tell you, their day could not have been more perfect. Between the amazing first look local and the ocean backdrop of their ceremony, their day was one for the books. Definitely a favorite wedding of mine! 

After a night of celebrating we met at the beach bright and early for a Trash the Dress session. The 8am wake up call came quick, but James and Erin had so much fun. The 80 degree water helped too!
