A Modern Beach Wedding in the Dominican Republic

Two West Coasters traveled to the Dominican Republic for a modern-meets-the-tropics celebration: Think hand-rolled cigars, mini bottles of rum, and lounge furniture on the beach!

"My Lela Rose gown was tissue-weight silk taffeta—delicate and airy and perfect for the tropics."

To honor her mom, who passed away 10 years ago, Natalia wore jewelry that once belonged to her.
