I am going to write a full review of all three places I went but I have to say this now... I can not go on enough about the place we got married, Sunrise Villa in the Dominican Republic.

If you have not chosen a place yet and are open to locations, this is THE PLACE. There are so many things I loved about it, but most of all was the intimacy. This is a private resort, meaning there is no one else with you but your guests. There is a main house with a master suite for you and your fiance. Then there are five other villas that will house 14-16 other people comfortably. This gives people their own time and space but at all the right times everyone comes together. We spent a lot more time and it was a lot more comfortable without having everyone else around like a normal resort. At breakfast, lunch and dinner we dined together and then there were so many places to gather the rest of the time that you were always an earshot away but could go to your own suite, or the beach or the pool or the bar, or the game room or where ever and have your own space.

This place is the most beautiful place I have ever been and the attention to detail is incredible. They have a private chef to cook all meals and snack during the day. (There is an all inclusive price 50per person per day) This doesn't include alcohol, but it is very affordable. They also have staff there all day, so you constantly have people bringing food, making drinks or getting anything you can think of.

The people here were amazing and went sooo out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. I planned a massage, pedicure and manicure for all the girls for my bachelorette party with coctails, and the girls that worked there, (we became close too) got me a stripper, lol and surprised me. It was hysterical and one of the highlights of my trip. I also asked for a bonfire on the beach one night, and they had their friends come out that are in a local band and played for us (I didn't ask or know this was happening) It was by far one of the best experiences and most fun we had.

The facilities are by far the best I have seen and every detail was impecable.

The wedding was one price and included a planner, cake, flowers, everything you can think of and we didn't have to plan a thing.

I wanted to scream from the rooftops how much I love this place and how incredible of an experience we had. We have a close family, but we all feel like what we shared was something that tops most other experiences that any of us have ever had. It was truly amazing. If anyone is still searching for a place or has questions, let me know. I would love to encourage anyone to go to Sunrise because I know it would be something they would never forget.

Here is the link if you want to look at the place (and the pictures don't begin to do it justice)

    WOW! Mishi that sounds like heaven! It makes me wish I could plan a secret second wedding and do it there!

    You look beautiful in your pictures - I love the close-up of you looking away from the camera - so pretty!

        Hi Mishi,

        Thank you for your review. I really appreciated it. I originally wanted to have our wedding at the DR but decided against it due to the distance from Chicago. But we will definitely consider it for our honeymoon.

        Congratulations again!
