So, it’s no surprise that this stunning nuptial perfectly planned by Dreams La Romana and captured by Asia Pimentel Photography is pure paradise.

From the Bride… Brett and I would have never considered a destination wedding if my sister hadn’t suggested it while we were looking for wedding venues locally. The idea of getting to spend a vacation with family and friends instead of just a few hours one night just made sense to us. We also were busy finishing graduate school, so going to a resort that took care of most of the details was appealing to us as well. One of the first sites she sent was Dreams La Romana, and after looking, at many more resorts we decided it was the best choice. We looked at as many pictures and reviews as we could find since we didn’t have a chance to go to the resort before our wedding. We wanted to make sure we picked a location that would be beautiful for our wedding as well as an enjoyable vacation for our friends and family.
Planning the wedding mainly over email was stressful at times, but it did make it much easier that the resort truly does take care of everything. After exchanging many emails with our wedding planner at Dreams, we finally got to meet her when we got to the resort, and all of the stress faded away. She took care of every detail we wanted and even a few surprises.
Our wedding day was pretty much stress free from the start! My day began on the beach with family and friends followed by some time in the pool overlooking the beach. I was confident our wedding planner, Jenny, had every detail taken care of, so I was able to relax.
Our photographers, Asia and Nikolay, arrived for us to begin getting ready, and we were immediately happy they would be the ones capturing our big day. They were with us throughout our wedding day and captured so many beautiful moments. They captured little details for us to look back at forever. For example, they took pictures of Brett’s shoes. Brett had wanted these shoes (Cole Haan Nike Air Wingtips) for our wedding for years before we were even engaged. By the time we were engaged, they no longer sold them! Luckily, my dad searched far and wide for them on the internet and eventually found a pair that I gave to Brett to wear for our wedding. They also captured one of my favorite moments, the walk up the aisle after getting married when our family and friends threw flower petals. This was one of the surprises our wedding planner prepared, and it was perfect. Now we get to relive those moments looking at our pictures. I cannot say enough about how happy we are with all of the photographs. Our photographers are truly talented.
We enjoyed every aspect of our wedding from the ceremony through the dancing. Not only was the Dreams wedding planner great, the waiters and DJ were great as well. The service and food were wonderful! In the end, we were so happy with our decision to do a destination wedding.
