This Family Affair Will Warm Your Hearts in All Kinds of Ways

You know what’s better than a destination wedding at Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa? Nothing. But add in a gorgeous couple who like to celebrate with breakfast for dinner and it becomes an entirely new level of awesome. From the breathtaking seaside ceremony to that amazing lace gown to the sweetest family ever frolicking on the beach, see it all captured by Dani Leigh Photography in THE VAULT.

Krystle and Greg’s wedding in the Dominican was such a dream. To escape the cold Maryland east coast temps in January was such a thrill for all 80 of her wedding guests who traveled to Punta Cana. It was really important to Krystle and Greg that it felt like a vacation for all their guests with just a little side of wedding thrown into the middle. And that is exactly what they got. The day of their wedding the kids played in the pool in the morning, ate room service in wet bathing suits and then Krystle and her daughter casually walked down to the spa to get their hair and makeup done, and then came back to the room to get ready. Krystle got ready in a dress she found unintentionally in Vegas when she wasn’t even looking for a wedding dress. It was literally perfect for the occasion.

Krystle, Greg and their kids love breakfast food so they convinced the chef to do breakfast for dinner! Which is such an American classic for parents. It was delicious! The Dominicans don’t exactly understand breakfast for dinner so it was quite a concept to explain and make happen. It all worked out, and then why not end the amazing night with some fireworks? A full fireworks display, a surprise from the groom, happened just over palms on the beach for all of their guests. It was such a magical event all beautifully planned by Katina Dawson of A Sweet Affair stateside and Carolina Guzman at Dreams!

A Dream Ballgown For a Beach Ceremony

If you’re under the impression that ballgowns and beach weddings don’t mix, this wedding will come as a pleasant surprise. The bride, Ashleigh wore her dream Lazaro dress for their toes-in-the-sand ceremony and Carrie King made magic happen behind the lens. Believe me, this is one gallery you can’t afford to miss.

From the Bride… Brian and I knew from the start of the wedding planning process that we wanted our wedding to have some very important key elements — not all of which were easy to accomplish simultaneously! We knew that we wanted our wedding to have a romantic and elegant feel while also making our guests feel at home at a spectacular party. After searching high and low from Europe to Mexico to the Caribbean, we were so fortunate to find a venue that was the ideal fit, Casa de Campo.

We were able to have a private toes in the sand ceremony, just as we had imagined for our dream wedding. Directly following, we hosted our reception in the town square of a beautiful cobblestone village on the resort property that makes you feel as if you’ve been transported back in time to 17th century Italy. It truly felt like we were living in a fairytale with the best part being that I got to marry my very own Prince Charming! We danced the night away under the stars with a local band that kept the party going until 3am. It was everything we hoped for and so much more.

The Dress: The first Lazaro gown I ever saw was in a bridal magazine. My 5 year old self decided that one day, when I got married, it would be in a Lazaro. When the time came to actually pick out my dream dress, I jumped into the hunt to find the perfect one by trying on every possible style and designer. After countless appointments from coast to coast, I finally tried on my first Lazaro gown at the Bridal Galleria in San Francisco. I had never worn anything that felt like such a complete expression of my personality. The asymmetrical lines, varied blush hues, intricate embellishments around the waist, and deep v-back all came together in such an artistic way. It was love at first sight! The icing on the cake is that I got to meet Lazaro and hear his vision for the gown. Such a dream come true.
