Behind the scenes



A beautiful color explosion in this Rehearsal Dinner at La Casita in Casa de Campo’s Marina

S+S got married last March in Casa de Campo, in the Dominican Republic. I kid you not, we LOVED every second of the planning journey with them. They were so easy to work with. Had great taste and full trust in us. We can selfishly say that’s our favorite combination (hahaha).

This blogpost is all about their first events, namely, the Rehearsal Dinner and the Welcome Party (scroll down all the way to the bottom for that one).

Their Rehearsal Dinner happened at La Casita, a spanish restaurant in the Marina of Casa de Campo, in a spectacular location. With an indoor/outdoors setup, full of wooden touches, we were beyond happy when our bride told us she was ok going bright and colorful for this night. When we have the chance to design with a fun palette like this, we take full advantage of it. It was the perfect balance to the neutral venue and the marina around it.

This blog also showcases a pre-wedding love shoot with their FABULOUS photographer Perry Vaile in Chavón with the bride’s second dress (which we all wanted to make sure there were great photos of her in it).

Truly the perfect weekend!

Let’s go one day back! We wanted to first show you the Rehearsal Dinner because we just loved it so much. But their festivities started actually one day before, with a Welcome Party at gorgeous Dye Fore in Altos de Chavón. Take a look below to the amazing opening evening!
