Krystle & Greg – Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa

Feb 3, 2015

Where to begin…where to begin. I’m not going to lie. I started writing this in my head the afternoon I knocked on Krystle and Greg’s door at my scheduled arrival time to start shooting, oh you know,…A WEDDING…to find Krystle and Greg both in their bathing suits, sunscreened up, dealing with their awesome kids and talking about what they were ordering for them for lunch and asking me if I wanted a water. Jay Z was playing on some cell phone in the background, Krystle hops in the shower and talks to us from there, kids wanting to watch Star Wars and not napping because another episode is coming on, you would have literally no idea that in less than 3 hours from that time Krystle and Greg would be actually attending their own wedding. I’m allowed to say all this because Krystle has promised that after this wedding we will be real friends and real friends can talk about hysterical situations such as the one above. Somehow, magically though, they both made it on time to the altar. Phew.

I met Krystle and Greg at Sara & Brett’s wedding in 2011. Krystle was pregnant with little Emmy then and I seriously could have taken photos of Colt all day. Since then I have been lucky enough to take their photos at their home near Ocean City and get to know them even better. I truly cannot thank these two enough for taking me away from Maryland in the dead of winter for a beautiful week in the Caribbean to shoot their wedding. It was so gorgeous and so fun and I am so happy to now call this family and all of their friends, my friends too.

Katina Dawson, of A Sweet Affair, I couldn’t have done this without you!! Neither could Krystle or Greg. 😉

Had to snag a shot with the bride and groom and the bestest planner I know – Katina!!!

There were fireworks!

This happened.

    Oh my gosh! I totally remember them from Sara and Brett’s wedding (and love that they made a cameo here…Brett’s hair has gotten so long, lol!). First, I just love this wedding. You can tell that they are just so relaxed and comfortable that it was their idea day. I absolutely love the sunset pictures and the KISS is the best with the kids there! Such real life! You’re making me totally jealous and I want to go to a destination wedding again!! Beautiful work!

    I love everything about this!! She’s just so effortlessly beautiful. Their portraits are absolute perfection. Those fireworks shots are amazing! Their friend/officiant wearing my favorite Lilly dress from the latest line… this wedding should be every wedding.
