High school love at its finest! This amazing couple had their dream wedding at Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic, where the bride grew up visiting on yearly family vacations. This wedding, without any doubt, is one of our favorites ever. First it consisted on four events, and the more events always the more fun! And secondly, we all clicked so well that it made the process pure joy! When a Cuban family meets a Venezuelan family, meets a Dominican planner, and all share the American culture too, a perfect match is made!!!
Needless to say, there were also countless challenges, since the planning of this event coincided with a period where COVID protocol between both countries were constantly changing. At some point we even had to look into other countries for potentially moving the wedding, and thankfully, one month before, exactly, we got the green light to continue moving forward. How lucky!!!
The first event was an intimate ceremony for the family in the chapel of the St Stanislaue of Cracovia church in Altos de Chavón, followed by a rehearsal dinner at a private Casa de Campo villa. The second day event consisted on a Welcome Party at Minitas Beach Club, where live music, and creative food stations kept everyone entertained. The third event was the wedding day, which we have dedicated a full blogpost for it, and you access it by clicking here.
Finally, guests were greeted farewell with a brunch of arepas, hosted by the parents of the groom, paying homage to their Venezuelan culture.
Saying that we loved working with this family is an understatement. We truly felt like we were serving our own family members and our besties. They’re loving, kind, trusting and incredibly appreciative people. We will cherish our time with them for the rest of our careers!
