Island Smilin’ // Honeymooning in the Dominican

Scavenging for coconuts on the beach, kayaking out to the reef, swimming alongside colorful sea critters and swooning hundreds of foreigners with the sweet melodies of Garth Brooks on karaoke night made for an unforgettable honeymoon and Daniel’s first time out of the country!

We had some luck at the casino a couple nights in a row and then it went all downhill after that…
