Most girls head out to Hollywood looking to become rich, famous, or both. While Amy did have big dreams when she moved out to the mecca of the entertainment world, there was one thing that she hadn’t planned on.
Meeting the man who would become her husband.
Amy and Eric met while working as production assistants together on the show Dance 360. What started out as a low-key friendship between co-workers ended up being a serious relationship that spanned six years before resulting in marriage.
Ever since Amy e-mailed me and confirmed that she wanted Matthew and I to shoot her wedding, we had been looking forward to it. Amy and Eric had an extraordinary destination wedding and got married at a beautiful all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic.
It was an intimate affair with 34 guests, and by the end of the trip everyone was like old friends. The bond that is formed between guests at a destination wedding is my favorite part. The bride and groom have their closest family and friends join them in a fantastic location and everyone melds together into one big super family.
Amy and Eric were such gracious hosts, creating personalized welcome bags for each guest and planning events and activities prior to the wedding day so that everyone could get to know each other. Everyone (ourselves included) arrived two days early so there was plenty of time for the bride and groom to socialize and live it up with all of the people who had made the trip.
Amy is a very creative person who put tons of hard work into the wedding crafting all sorts of games and goodies for her guests. From custom made drink flags to cards with ice breaker question cards featuring the bride and groom, there was nothing she overlooked.
As a photographer I delight in such details and had a fabulous time taking pictures of all of Amy’s handiwork.
As an added celebratory bonus, Amy’s parents celebrated their anniversary the day after the wedding!
I can’t say enough about how kind and welcoming everyone was to us and what a beautiful wedding it was…so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
This post is pretty image heavy because I’m also including some pictures from the events surrounding the wedding day, as well as the big day, just a heads up.
Congratulations Amy and Eric, thanks so much for flying us down to capture all the fun of your wedding week, we had a blast!
Loved this ring bearer bowl. Just amazing.
Great day for a wedding!!
Amy’s Monique Lhuillier gown was elegantly simple and perfect for a beach wedding.
