Dawn and Jake’s Destination Wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
May 11, 2012
Dawn and Jake are married! Our warmest congratulations to this gorgeous couple who wed at the Jellyfish Restaurant in Punta Cana. The group stayed at the Majestic Elegance and they celebrated the big day offsite. Thanks to HDC Photography for some beautiful photos. Here is their story in their own words…
How They Met:
“We both work for the same advertising agency in South Florida. Jake as a Director of TV production in the studio and Dawn as an Account Executive. What really attracted Dawn to Jake was his creativity and talent … and his amazing blue eyes. Jake says he liked Dawn’s bubbly personality and smile. We dated for about 4 years before Jake proposed. It was at home one night around the holidays just as we were about to fly out to see his family in Texas the next day. He had made an entire dinner with champagne and candles lit and got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife :)”
