The Love Story
Ashely and Robbie met the old fashion way! He saw her across the room and just had to go talk to her. Their connection was instant, but Ashley insisted she was leaving soon because she was in her work clothes. Robbie's persistence paid off, and they finally went on their first date, followed by seeing each other every day for a week straight. After 14 romantic months together, Robbie proposed on the cliffs of Laguna Beach, CA, and they decided to officially tie the knot in Punta Cana!

The Planning Experience
Ashley and Robbie dreamed of a wedding that would be an incredible vacation for all of their guests, and it was! Every time they wandered around their resort, they saw all of their favorite people in one place, which allowed them to create memories and spend quality time together. Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana exceeded their expectations of what they envisioned their destination wedding to be. With the crystal-clear Punta Cana waters, delicious restaurants, and luxury service, they couldn't have asked for a better place to exchange their vows.

The Celebration
These lovebirds pulled out all the stops to make their wedding entertaining and magical. Picture fire flames dancing during their entrance music, top-notch lighting, cigar rollers, and to top it all off, a thrilling fire show. They had it all! Their beachside ceremony was something out of a fairytale, with the crashing waves in the background and saying their "I dos" under the sunset; it was everything they could have wanted and more. One of their favorite parts of their celebration was having all of their loved ones in one place. "Everywhere you go on the resort, you see your besties!" recalls Ashley.

The Memories
Ashley and Robbie loved their big day so much, they plan on returning for their one-year anniversary! "We would want to repeat our wedding day, at the same resort, same people. It would be PERFECT!" Ashley states. They can't wait to relive the magic all over again. To sum up their destination wedding, they describe it as "fun, personalized, and memorable." Their special day turned out better than they could have imagined.
