Grand Palladium Bavaro Suites Resort & Spa
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
The one where they met:
It all started with a simple message... Brittnay and Jim met online and eventually had their first date at Up-Down, an arcade bar on the East side of Milwaukee. They completely intended on playing games but quickly learned that they both liked to talk too much. The adventure lasted for hours that neither wanted to end and they had no idea at that time there would be many more!
The one when they knew:
Brittnay and Jim had taken their first trip traveling to Atlantic City for a Phish concert. Jim was already pushing Brittnay out of her comfort zone. The trip was early on, but they thought, this is either going to make it or break it! They had such an amazing time, that they decided to change their flights, scalp tickets to the last night of the Phish show, find a cheap hotel on the boardwalk and stay another night. After that trip they knew that they had both met their match!
The one where they got engaged:
Brittnay and Jim had a trip planned to take Maura and Addison to Cancun for the New Year. Many of you are probably thinking that is Cancun is where they got engaged. That would be too easy and for those of you that know Jim, does he ever do anything easy? With the help of family, Jim planned an evening in Chicago, ending at Pop’s Champagne Bar where he asked Brittnay to marry him. After they got engaged, Brittnay at first thought he was crazy but immediately knew he was her crazy!
When planning our wedding day, we both agreed that we wanted to do something that is low-stress, fun and allow us to maximize quality time with all our friends and family! Having a destination wedding has been my dream since I could remember and has become our dream once Jim popped the question! I mean seriously…who doesn’t love a vacation?
We travelled together and we’ve traveled apart, and now we can’t wait to travel with all of you! We look forward to sharing more incredible memories with our family and friends, and for the next adventures in our lives. There is nothing more characteristic of us and our relationship than spending a week in paradise surrounded by those we love most in the world. We hope to see you all there!

Blessed with one of the Caribbean region’s longest white sand coastlines–a whopping 30 miles, punctuated with sky-reaching coconut palms–Punta Cana is the land of rest and relaxation by the sea. Here, where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean, from the northern tip at Uvero Alto to the southern at Cap Cana, all-inclusive resorts and boutique hideaways offer all the whims and comforts of modern beachfront living. Families enjoy miniature entertainment centers and water parks for children, while couples-only enclaves boast dream wedding locations, with secluded beachside lodging for an ultra-romantic stay. But it’s not only about fun in the sun, soft sand brushing against your toes, and iridescent, clear water to swim in, go fishing, or dive for underwater life and shipwrecks. Punta Cana is also a golfer’s destination, with 10 courses located all along the strip, a seaside escape with luxurious marinas and fine dining, and a wellness corner home to the country’s top spas, including the only Six Senses in the Caribbean.
