Destination Elopement – Dominican Dip Pool Session – Pt. 2

Kaitlyn + Ryan – Bayahibe, Dominican Republic

When you travel for your destination elopement, your wedding story extends beyond the date you’ll mark as your anniversary.

However, some of the most memorable parts of your elopement might be the routines you fell into while away or the new places you were able to explore. For example, things like getting up early to watch the sunrise, trips to the local market or your daily açaí bowl stop become tied to your story.

Additionally, many couples who are planning an adventurous wedding don’t have the time or ability to visit all of the photo-worthy places on their list in one day.

For these reasons, I fully believe every destination elopement or wedding deserves an adventure session.

What is an adventure session?

An adventure session typically involves going on some kind of “adventure” together.

A more extreme adventure would be rock climbing.

Does this sound like too much for you? No worries! Adventure sessions don’t have to be extreme!

In fact, exploring the city or staying in and listening to music can be an adventure in itself.

Above all, the key component to any adventure session is that it has to add to the story of your destination wedding.

Destination Elopement Adventure Session Ideas:

  • drinking coffee + watching the sunrise
  • sharing a pitcher of margs + watching the sunset
  • taking lessons for cooking authentic local cuisine or learning a cultural dance
  • hiking
  • head to the city/local shops
  • exploring cultural sites
  • swimming or surfing
  • kayak/canoe/boats
  • mountain biking
  • rent mopeds, a convertible or 4-wheelers
  • in-home cuddle session at your resort or AirBNB
