  1. Hello! Just came across this. I am warning whoever I can- yes his work is really really nice. But beware, 8 months later and I still haven't received our video. Not even a teaser, which was promised before the video would be sent. It's driving us crazy because they keep pushing it back. I don't know anyone who's wedding video has taken this long (almost a year)... I feel at this point they are pulling our leg and something is wrong. :/
  2. I haven't been on this forever! I'm trying to reply to Annabel... I got married in Sanctuary in August, almost 6 months ago now. But reading your post took me back to the dreadful feeling I had because I too was in your shoes. It was 3 weeks to my wedding and no one was communicating with me due to musical chairs within the resort's administration. I had been working with the resort planner for months only to find out that she quit and went to another resort, leaving me frantic and on the verge of a breakdown (thankfully, I prayed and thought only positive thoughts). I had changed my choice of resort because Sanctuary was way more beautiful than our original choice, which was where our group was staying. I wanted to make sure I made the right decision and I reached out to a bride through Trip Advisor and she told me that even though the communication might not be perfect, and they might not do things the way we do them or with the timing and/or consideration, not to worry- because her wedding was a dream- and our wedding turned out to be an absolute dream. Do we have regrets?- absolutely not. The two most important things for me are setting, and food. This place is gorgeous and the food was yummy and everyone loved it. We had a big group so I was adamant about hiring a day of coordinator to help manage the groups smooth transition and comfort (we shuttled our guests in private limo busses from the other resort) and she helped immensely. Because of the last minute change the coordinator at Cap Cana started with our wedding from scratch and she did a very good job, considering the circumstances. I'm sorry to hear some people are having such a hard time but I will say that when we stayed there for our honeymoon, there were a lot of closed quarters because of lack of occupancy (better for us we had the resort to ourselves!). But really, I don't know what the deal is now, they seem to still be trying to find a balance within their admin structure. There is so much competition in PC now and I don't know if Cap Cana is being marketed enough but the pictures speak volumes. Let me know if you have any other questions!!! All the best...

  4. This is a review of:

    Katya Nova Photography

    Sweet, intuitive & generous Katya Nova

    Pictures of my wedding were one of my top priorities.  I did my research and would come up with cheesy photography sites in the DR and felt hopeless.  I guess I had to fly them in from NY which was daunting. One night I stumbled on Katya's website (I think after googling best Dominican wedding photography- lol).  I felt inspired.  I felt love through her pictures- they documented love, as her tagline so appropriately suggests.   Katya was so sweet in answering questions I had about my venue Cap Cana which she has photographed so beautifully many times before.  She was a bride as well & was empathetic with the process.  When I see our pictures it takes me back to our sweet day & I experience the emotions just as I did then.  The photo-booth was the cherry on top!!  Definitely had our guests giddy- I'm so happy we did that.   When people see our pics, they are mesmerized.  "Wow, gorgeous pictures"... Hey- you mean gorgeous wedding right? lol- Thanks Katya for gorgeously documenting our big day!
