Jennifer Clemente (33, physical therapist) and Seth Jameson (34 and an Internet marketer) became friends while attending the University of Miami and started dating after college. Seth proposed while the couple was vacationing in Mexico at a private beach villa. “We knew we wanted a destination beach wedding since we both love the beach,” says the bride. They chose to have their wedding at Sublime Samana in the Dominican Republic, a beautiful resort with its own beach for a secluded, intimate celebration. “We wanted a resort where our closest friends and family would be the only guests at the hotel,” says Jennifer. The bride wore the Lyon dress by Anna Maier Ulla-Maija, a strapless wedding dress with a sweetheart neckline made from French lace in a fluted style. The groom looked casual and beach-ready in a gray vest and pants with a white button-down shirt. He also wore a black tie that was a Christmas gift from Jennifer years before their wedding day. The couple kept the color palette a light and neutral gray and white to complement the beach setting. They used only white orchids as flowers for their simple beauty and elegance, and also to bring them home after the wedding. Throughout the week, the couple and their guests participated in activities such as a fun cocktail party the day before the wedding, a snorkeling trip to a local island and a beach barbecue on the last night of festivities. The best part about the wedding, according to the bride, was turning into a vacation. “It was so fun being with our friends and family for a week in a tropical paradise,” she says. “You get to hang out with your guests longer.”
