My video- Ceremony, Reception, Details, and Venue all on YouTube...

Recommended Posts

I have uploaded almost 40 minutes of my raw video to YouTube in segments. Baja Video Productions shot my raw footage, which I'm still planning to edit. But, I was uploading this to share with out of town family and friends, so thought I'd post it here too. There is a lot of video here, so if you're bored this will take up an hour of your time! Mind you, the quality on the YouTube uploaded videos is no where near what the original video is. I had to compress these alot to upload...


This is the start of the video Marci & Enrique shot. This has some great shots of Dreams, so if you've never been there you should definitely watch this one- it's like 6 minutes long, but has good shots of the hotel, lobby, beach, pool, gazebo, and then Marci, Enrique, and Juan coming to my room while I am getting ready...

This is the first half of our ceremony, from the guys arriving at the gazebo through our sand ceremony. You get a good picture of the mariachi band, the gazebo, and can see our setup. Tammy, Steve, Edyta & Terry are in this one. You can also see and hear Mariana alot in this one. This clip is 10 minutes long.

This is the second half of our ceremony which picks up right after the sand ceremony with my dad & brother's song. If you listen closely, right as this clip starts, you can hear me ask Jeff if he liked his "present" and if he was surprised. Later, as my dad & bro are singing, you hear Jeff say "I missed you"...it made me cry when I watched it again. My dad & brother did a great job on their song despite NEVER practicing it- I couldn't believe it when they told me that-yikes! Also, my dad forgot his guitar strap, so at one point in the song you hear him miss a couple notes on the guitar- he almost dropped it! lol This clip is also 10 minutes long.

This clip is basically my reception setup. Some of it is rather tedious, as Enrique shot every single placecard candle with each person's name, but I didn't bother to edit- just forward through it if you're not interested. You can see my cake, my table setup during the daylight, and some good shots of the Oceana Terrace in general. Edyta & Terry are in this one! This clip ends with Jeff & I arriving at the reception. As you can see- we got there REALLY late- it was already dark! Juan kept us for a loooonnngg time! This is about 6 minutes long. You also can hear how loud the Dreams Speaker system is- our dinner music is playing in the background- I think they turned it down a little once our guests started arriving.

Here are our first dances, which we did immediately upon arrival to the reception. Jeff & I danced first, then we did the parents' dance. I totally lost it when I danced with my dad- you get to see me really cry...At the end of this clip is my small thank-you speech before dinner. I think the music I picked for this sounded good, and was timed well. The groom & BM speeches were later- I didn't upload those.

So, I hope you enjoy. We intend to do an edited video of all the great footage Marci & Enrique got. We're just still trying to decide who is going to edit. I want to use a company I know of, Jeff wants to buy software and do it ourselves. We'll see...

It's ok- as you can see, I cried too! lol I stuck that Kleenex in my dress at the last second- I had my MOH run and get it for me- best decision all day, because I used it alot throughout the night.


Yup, I cry every time I watch this video. Eventually I'll stop being such a sap!

    • 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
