  1. Hi Ladies - I am back from my destination wedding in mid-October at Sanctuary Cap Cana. It was an absolute dream and we are very happy with how everything went. A few details to pass on to the forum here: 1. They have hired a new Events Manager, Stephany, who is wonderful. She has taken over for Scarlet, who is now focused on hotel reservations/operations. She took over our file 2 weeks prior to our wedding and was a real pro. She handled every detail with ease and with a smile. Now that they have a dedicated person dealing with events/weddings, I found that communication was even quicker than it had been previously. 2. The latest on the hotel renovations/closure. The update that Scarlet gave me was that they are expecting SCC to close on April 31, 2014 for a few months. However, please note that she clearly indicated this was still up in the air. As is the case with all construction in the DR, issues related to financing and obtaining the required elements for construction always fluctuates. The plans for closure at this point are still tentative. There was no mention of eliminating the all-inclusive element of the hotel. 3. The hotel only accommodates one wedding per day. This is not a wedding factory! The hotel and staff make you feel special and unique and very much cater to you and your guests during your wedding day (and for your entire trip) We had a lovely wedding day and reception and everything went smoothly - including the weather! We used hotel vendors for everything from photographer to DJ and were very happy with the results. Happy to provide more detail to any bride who is considering SCC for a destination wedding - please feel free to contact me with questions Overall, I would highly recommend SCC to any bride who is looking to have an intimate wedding ceremony and reception at a unique hotel that displays both classy and rustic tropical elements in such wonderful combination. Good luck everybody!!
