|Ever since Amanda was a teenager, she always told her parents she wanted an intimate, destination wedding. When the time arrived to start planning the big day with her new fiancee Joe, the Dominican Republic was an easy choice for them. The Now Larimar all-inclusive resort was their venue of choice for the tropical, beach-themed wedding they always wanted. Now Larimar is located on the east part of the island in the city of Punta Cana and sits right on the ocean. Amanda and her girls got ready in the resort’s private spa, and Joe and his groomsmen hung out in their ocean-view room. The ceremony took place at “The Fountain”, which features a beautiful pergola, walkway and is situated amongst a palm tree forest. The reception sat right on the sand amongst a beautiful spread of tables, couches and other decorations Amanda and Joe helped create.
