Behind the scenes



Jewish Wedding in Casa de Campo with Jaw Dropping Florals

P+A, our Bride and Groom, are based in NYC but had fallen in love with Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic and all its unique beauty. After having traveled there a couple of times, they wanted all their family and friends to experience it by themselves.

Their weekend consisted of a white welcome party at Minitas Beach Club, which you can see documented HERE. And the next day a beautiful jewish Ceremony in the positively overwhelming Amphitheater (on the stage), followed by Cocktails at the top perimeter of this same venue. Subsequently, guests took a short shuttle ride to the reception, happening in a private luxury villa, with ocean and golf course fronts, and located within the same resort.

We’re absolutely grateful for these amazing clients, who made the work-to-be-done so easy and fun! They inspired us to do exactly what they wanted in a way that also felt very us here at CDWE — a sophisticated glam chic wedding, combining NYC and Caribbean vibes.

We hope you enjoy this gallery as much as we did working with them (including the AMAZING parents of the Bride!) and executing this wonderful destination wedding weekend!
