5: "Will You Marry Me?" | My heart was pounding as I awaited her response, she paused and then I heard the words I had been hoping for “Yes! Yes! Of course!“ | On August of 2012 we were on our way to Lake of the Ozarks with the Wilkerson family. To my surprise, Gabe took me on a special date to tour the Bridal Caves. I should have know what he was up to by the name but I had no clue! We were having a great time taking lots of photos and when we went to take a picture of ourselves in front of the cave wall Gabe stopped, got down on one knee and proposed. I cried and of course said yes! It was a great start to our vacation and engagement..

38: CARIBBEAN ISLANDS HERE WE COME!
39: I'm so glad we chose Dominican Republic to spend our Honeymoon! It was the perfect ending to the long year of wedding planning. We were in dire need of some relaxation. The pool was my favorite part of our trip on the secluded beachfront landscape of Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa. It's the largest free-form swimming pool in the Dominican Republic. We also enjoyed our own private jacuzzi on the balcony of our honeymoon suite! During our stay we ventured out to do a few things off the grid. Our first stop was a private horseback ride which was very...interesting. We managed not to fall off and have great video proof! Another amazing adventure we embarked on was swimming with stingrays and sharks! Don't worry, they were only nursery sharks but it was still thrilling! We were also able to check ziplining off our bucket list which was so beautiful and exhilarating. We were right on the beach, with amazing views of the ocean, plus awesome poolside service, lounging with my new hubby. Really, does it get any better than that? | Caribbean | the islands of the | Dreams Punta Cana Resort
