Margaret and Joe had already said their "I Do's" once before in California. However, for all the friends who weren't able to make it to that ceremony, the couple held a second wedding at the Dreams Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. You never would have guessed that this was the couple's second time reciting their vows. They were just as thrilled the second time around!
Margaret brought along her two bridesmaids and her "bridesman." This ceremony was the definition of intimate with fewer than 20 guests in total. The groom and groomsmen kept it comfy tropical with white cotton dress shirts, khakis and flip-flops. Just one of the many perks of getting married beachfront. Margaret wore a traditional, strapless gown, but brought in some Caribbean flair by tucking a bright, tropical flower behind her ear.
Margaret and Joe tied the knot between two large palm trees just feet from the bright blue water. The occasion was marked by two enormous white flags billowing in the wind. They set the scene for a truely romantic and joyous occasion. The couple and guests enjoyed drinks and hors d'vers while enjoying the afternoon sun.
The wedding party moved inside for an intimate sit-down dinner. Margaret and Joe weren't worn out yet from their day of strolling the beach. Hopefully the couple's second wedding in the Dominican Republic capped off their wedding celebrations and began their life together with a bang! Thanks for sharing your beautiful day with us.
