California Beach Wedding 8-15-2009

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone. This looks like a great forum. My Fiance, (Todd) and I, (Allison) are getting married on August 15, 2009. We had plans to do a beach wedding on Moonstone Beach in Cambria. As the plans developed we started to exceed 80 people and the bill was getting huge. We are both independent people and do not expect any financial help with this event. With the economy issues we no longer feel comfortable spending so much on our wedding with my job stability lessening and him owning a retail store. We have had to tighten up our budgets a little.


We have decided to stick with a beach wedding and just keep it to about 30 people (immediate family and a few friends). We both love hiking and scenic natural areas. He is an avid photographer and we both want a semi private natural appearance to the beach for our wedding. Since we are now changing plans and going small, we are trying to locate a naturally scenic semi-private beach. We have plans to drive the coast a couple times over the next couple weeks and that is why we have found this forum. I will be posting in the So Cal and Nor Cal forums in hopes of finding the recommendations for beach location and nearby restaurants that welcome large parties.

    • 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.
