A three day wedding weekend in Punta Cana sounds amazing as it is, but when that wedding is planned and designed by Weddings Romantique? Well, that just ups the ante on the pretty factor. It will only take one peek at the images below from Joseph Lin Photography to see why this wedding just had to grace the pages of SMP Destination, and there is even more lovely sitting right here.

… Veronica and Justin hosted a unique and fun destination wedding celebration in Punta Cana Dominican Republic, they wanted to celebrate their wedding with family in an all-inclusive resort so their family can relax and enjoy themselves when they arrived at the resort.
They wanted to welcome their guests and thank them for join them in their celebrations so I helped them plan a three day event for their guests. They had a gorgeous pool welcome party at a very elegant private pool at the resort, where all the ladies were beautiful white dresses and the men were stylish white shirt and pants. They made welcome bags for all their guest to thank them for being part of their wedding celebration. Veronica and Justin decided to surprise the guests at the end of the party by jumping in the pool to start of their wedding weekend celebration!
The wedding ceremony was held on the beach which provided a beautiful natural backdrop for the ceremony, Veronica wanted elegant all white flowers for the ceremony decorations, the arch and aisle design was elegant and chic which highlighted the gorgeous turquoise ocean and white sand on the beach. She chose elegant lavender and purple for her bridesmaids dresses and the groomsmen had a chic white suite with lavender and pink ties that complemented the bridesmaids dresses. Both Veronica and Justin wanted to have all the elements formal black tie reception so they chose to host their reception in an elegant ballrooms with chic all white flowers centerpieces for reception with touches of lavender in the napkins, white draping and lavender up lightning. Veronica added her own personal touches to the reception design by painting her table numbers silver and lavender and created her own escort cards in the same colors. They had another surprise for their guests at reception with Dominican Costume Folkloric Group show which was a lot fun and got of the guests on the dance floor to dance with them!
They hosted a farewell brunch for their guest at another beautiful terrace overlooking the turquoise water where they thanked their guest again for joining them in celebrating their wedding. Veronica and Justin are a very special couple and I am glad I had the opportunity to be part of their destination wedding planning. I enjoyed helping create a stylish wedding and memorable weekend.

This wedding right here? It’s exactly the reason I love destination weddings. The reason I can’t get enough of a laid back meets elegant, toes in the sand kind of affair. It’s a picture perfect backdrop (aka, the Caribbean) with a bride and groom who are the epitome of stunning and enough gold accents to keep you smiling all year (it’s true). And don’t even get me started on the gallery from Brosnan Photographic. It’s pure genius… and you can see it all right here.

From Brosnan Photographic… Despite their families knowing each other for many years Natalie and Sal only met a few years ago until fate stepped in and Natalie was Sal’s good luck charm at the blackjack table! Both from the Chicago burbs they decided on a destination wedding to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Their wedding was held at Melia Caribe Tropical. They were married in the evening sun under the beach side gazebo with their dinner in the beach side grill overlooking the shoreline.
