Audra and Tyler met through friends at a local bar. It was closing time and they’ve exchanged phone numbers and never stopped talking after that. Tyler visited Audra at her bar-tending job every night and helped her study for college after she got off work.
3 years later, Tyler proposed in Keystone, Colorado at the top of a ski mountain. It was beautiful, scenic, and intimate. They celebrated afterwards with a shot at the mountainside lodge. They started a tradition of taking a shot and cheers when something happens to celebrate the wins in life… When they started new jobs, bought a house, got engaged and now got married. So, we too are joining this tradition with a huge cheer to this beautiful couple!
Since Audra and Tyler love to travel, choosing a Secrets Cap Cana, a luxury all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic was a no surprise. They told us that they wanted for their wedding to be intimate with only close family and friends so they can be able to talk to everyone. They’ve picked a neutral color scheme (white, tan, greenery) along with dusty rose because “we typically like things more simplistic and minimalistic… nothing over the top” they’ve explained. They had everyone’s names on oysters for their name as a place “cards”. Audra also DIY’ed the “take your shot and your seat” sign. Both the groom and the bride each chose their favorite shot that had tried at the resort in their first 4 days there. The one long table with everyone included was important and bride’s favorite piece. Also, they brought a Polaroid camera and guest book for selfies to accompany their note and signatures.
Bride chose a wedding dress that mixed lace elegance with fluffy, soft tulle. The boys wore tan pants and white long sleeve shirts to keep everything neutral and beachy. Tyler wore a jacket to stand out from the groomsmen. The girls had a pop of color, dusty rose, which matched the table decor as well.
We asked Audra what was the most anticipated or special moment of a wedding day and she told us that it was “Seeing each other down the aisle for the first time. We didn’t do a first look and slept separately the night before. We had to reschedule the wedding 2 times in the last year due to Covid, so it was a long-anticipated moment.”
And this is their grain of wisdom for all the future brides and grooms to be: “Don’t let small things become big things. Always talk when there’s something on your mind, marriage isn’t a game. Trust is also so important… Being able to be separate and do your own thing without worrying about the other person is so nice!”
“Love doesn’t make the world go around, Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.”
Dreams Royal Beach Punta Cana is a luxurious, family-friendly getaway on the magnificent coast of the Dominican Republic. Located at tropical, palm-studded stretch of beach, offering views of the turquoise Caribbean Sea. The resort’s perfectly manicured gardens provide the perfect setting for an amazing, lush Caribbean weddings. That is exactly what Lynette & Dwayne wanted for their biggest day.
Lynette and Dwayne Dreams Royal Beach wedding at Punta Cana was first and foremost a celebration of the love between the two of them, but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t at the same time seriously fun party. There no two weddings that are the same, but Lynette and Dwayne manage to transform their big day into something unforgettable. The entire day, from the preparation, trough emotional ceremony and amazing reception, they transformed these essential details to unforgettable elements of their big day as a whole.
Congratulations Lynette and Dwayne, we wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
