Meet Heather & Shawn, sweethearts from Chicago. They knew each other in high school, but didn’t fall in love till college!
Here’s their amazing wedding at Huracan Cafe, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
Special thanks to dear Nati & Huracan team for putting so much love & heart into making the day so special. Enjoy! Proposal Story: “It was June 15th, 2015. The proposal was in Long Beach, CA. Heather was speaking at a conference there so we decided to make a trip of it together. That day Heather went to a few seminars, while Shawn relaxed and reflected. A few weeks prior Shawn had made the dinner arrangements and ordered flowers to be waiting. We took a nice walk to dinner, which was at The Sky Room. He proposed at the very top of the building in their observatory that overlooked the Pacific Ocean, while we were “waiting for our table to be set.” Heather was completely surprised! We had a lovely dinner (and a lot of wine). Then we went to a few local bars. We didn’t tell anyone until the next day so we could just be together and not distracted. We also made some friends with locals. The night ended with us stopping at 7 Eleven to get some snacks, totally destroying the kitchen with drinks and food, and then falling asleep (not so romantically).”
First Look! Heather loves: “Tacos and Pizza! Also, shopping and spending money. And Shawn’s smile, and his nose. I also love, love LOVE my engagement ring!”
Shawn loves: “Pizza and Jack Daniels. Also, Heather’s booty. And my Movado watch, my favourite gift from Heather.”
