Recommended Posts

Jenn963, Of course I will send you all the pictures I have. I dont believe I have pictures of the restaraunts but I will check. I checked out a lot of pictures on tripadvisor.

Carolina did not say one thing about charging $500 to bring in an outside photographer. She told me $60 for daytime and $60 for after 6:00pm. So ours is a total of $120. Would you like me to email you the email she sent me in regards  to brining in Eva Hadhazy Photography?

Hi Jenn!

 

Would I be able to get this info as well?? Our wedding is scheduled (tentatively) for Jan 27 2014, and I'm trying to collect as much info as I can before we have to book everything!

Thanks so much for being so helpful to all us other brides, I can tell already you'll be a lifesaver!

u are amazing!! lol so persistent..i like that!  if you dont' mind, would you PLEASE send me pictures of the reception dinner (where the private dinner is) please....i'm now wondering if we pay $1000 for the private dinner and it's ours from 630-12am...maybe we should stick with the reception AND party at the restaurant as opposed to a private beach party? i dont know.  My soon-to-be hubby wants to see the restaurant first and then decide :) also, do you have pictures of the bouquets (for the symbolic silver package u chose) for bride? my email is jenn.963@hotmail.com :)  oh and i have more questions about your photographer......that's my issue rite now....i dont want to go with Photoshop Caribe :( they aren't the greatest....Carolina is not budging on waiving or lowering this $500 to bring an outside photographer so i may have to bring my own :)  Email me please :) and THANK you! (i'm sure i speak on behalf of other 2013 brides :P)
I think I already mentioned it, but we are seriously looking at bringing our own photographer from home. I would be happy to share her information and work samples with you if you're interested. Since our weddings are the same week, it might be very beneficial for us to both work with the same photographer.

We booked the Symbolic ceremony at 4:00pm that is $690 6:00 dinner (which we pick the resteraunt upon arrival) The $550 Beach Party + $15 per person open bar, you do have to have a min amount of people in order to have the beach party And for photgraphy we pciked Eva Hadhazy from Hadhazy Photography in Ottawa. She does amazing work and is in Punta Cana ALL the time. It was $1650, this includes 2000+ images on cd. She has a ton of different packages though, We do have to pay the resort $60 until 6:00pm then $60 until 2:00am as she is at our resort from 11:00am until 2:00am taking photos, so a total of $120 on top of her fee but I feel like she is totally worth it. I was able to book all of this within 6 months of my wedding date by being really annoying lol :) Carolina said that I wasnt able to book anything Until January 2013 and our wedding was in March 2013 but I did email, email, email and email asking to book and she finally caved. If any body needs any extra info I am always happy to help as I know how awful it is when you wait two days and only receieve a two word answer from her. I have a ton of emails with extras, pictures of locations for ceremony and reception, the beach party, costs for all of the different wedding ceremony packages... Let me know :0) HAPPY PLANNING AND CONGRATULATIONS!!
Hi jenmheadrick! I would greatly appreciate it if you would share any information/price lists/pics! My email address is e_berry@hotmail.com . Thanks so much... and best of luck to you during these last couple of months!

oh i get it...$60 is the day/night pass that you're paying for the photographer from Ottawa (who is already in Punta Cana just at a different resort right?).  The $500 fee i'm talkin about is if we go and choose another local punta cana photographer (i.e Caribbean Emotions/HDC/etc).  it's crazy.  But what can you do...hotel policy.  Anyway, I'm goin to hunt down a photographer like yours that is already down there and see what I can do :) Thank you Jen!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
