A Destination to Remember

Our last Wedding of the year was a destination Wedding for Michelle & Danny in the Dominican Republic. If I was to best describe our last Wedding shoot, I could honestly say we went out with a “Bang”…..!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, not only was the Wedding couple as kind as can be, extremely funny, and good looking, but they also included a surprise helicopter beach arrival.

Syl stayed on the ground to film the helicopter landing on the beach with the guests ( who knew nothing about this surprise entrance to the reception), while I was engaged to go into the helicopter to capture Danny & Michelle.

Not only was this a bit scary just in general, but given the fact that I also had to film them inside a minuscule, loud, shaky helicopter made the task very exciting, to say the least!!! I felt a bit as if I was an actor in an army movie when I had to exit quickly with my monopod and camera, at the same time avoiding the loud and low blade hovering above me as I tried to also get another angle shot of them exiting the helicopter. Michelle was a great sport, because I knew she was terrified.

The details of the Wedding Ceremony were unbelievable with the stunning flower arrangements, location, balloon releases, not to mention the hottest temperatures that included a bridesmaid fainting. The ocean/poolside reception was also spectacular, and yes, the Lebanese really know how to have a fun and extraordinary time at a Wedding, even in the Dominican Republic!
