FC: Thanks for making the trip! | Punta Cana, 2012

1: Tina & Craig September 25, 2012

3: The wait is finally over! Welcome to sun, sand and relaxation...welcome to Punta Cana! Even though we didn't want a traditional wedding at home, it was still very important to us to be able to celebrate with those we love. So we are both so happy to be having the wedding of our dreams - on a beautiful beach surrounded by our closest family and friends. We are honored that you have been able to travel so far to join us on our big day. In this book you will find some information you might need during your stay including a guest list and itinerary. There are also a few fun facts and games to keep you busy on the plane or the beach. We have also put together a 'Welcome Bag' as a small token of our appreciation that will hopefully help to make your stay a little more fantastic. This is not just a special time for us - its your vacation too! So please enjoy yourselves and make some wonderful memories too. Lots of love, Tina and Craig

9: Notes

10: I am very excited to have my sister and sister-in-law stand for me when I marry my best friend. Only a couple of years apart in age, Simone and I have always been close and I think of her as a friend as well as a sister. Tanya fit very easily into our family from the moment we met her and she has become a true sister to me. I'd like to extend a special thank you to both of my girls for always being there for me and for all the time and effort they have put into making this our dream wedding. I couldn't ask for better sisters - or a better bridal party. Tina | The Wedding Party

11: Jay and John are both excellent choices to stand for me and I consider both to be my best men. Jay, my cousin, grew up with me. He acted as a little brother - one I could stand up for and one I could count on to do the less appealing things that I was not up to. John, on the other hand, grew up next to me but it wasn't until years later we became friends. From day one of our friendship, I knew John was watching out for me, a daunting task for sure. Even after all the things I have put them through, they still stick by my side. True friends are surely hard to come by. Craig
