          Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

              I met my fiance when we were working together at a resort in Punta Cana. I worked in the kids club and he was a photographer. How did you meet yours?
              And Rubia Loca is what random Dominicans call me when I won't take a ride with them...they think it's crazy to enjoy walking in the sun! :P

                lol how did you come to work at a resort? I went to the Majestic for my best friends wedding. She asked me to be MOH but I totally didn't want to go (but I didn't tell her that) because I wanted to spend the money on a trip to Europe, plus I hate the sun and hot weather. Turned out to be a great week though as that's where I met my husband :)

                When are you getting married rubialoca? Has he been able to get a visa to visit Canada? Have you looked into sponsoring him to come to Canada? That's my next step. I have most of the documents ready, just have to gather the details.

                  I was working for Club Med at the time and they basically give us 6 month contracts in their various resorts around the world, and I happened to be placed in Punta Cana. Lucky for me cuz I met my man there!
                  We applied for a visitor visa back in July in hopes that he could come here for Christmas holidays and we were denied. These are not handed out very often to Dominicans, but we thought we'd try anyway so he could see Canada before moving here. Alas, I'll be spending Christmas back in the DR!
                  I'll be sponsoring him to come here once we're married. I'm working on putting together the application, as it's quite a long process and requires a lot of documentation to support the relationship (I'm sure you're aware of this if you're doing it too!). We're getting married in March so hopefully by then the application will be ready to send off!

                    That is so amazing!! I have met some of my favorite people in the world in the DR, probably explains why I have gone there 6 times on vaca!! Haha!

                    I think its awful how much work has to go in to "prove" your relationship... I know there are (obviously) some people who take advantage of the system and thats why those measures ae in place, but it just SOUNDS ridiculous for two people to have to prove they love eachother and that the relationship is legit. No one of the same country has to do that! Even though I think celebrities should have to do this, there is too much random marriage and subsequent divorce in Hollywood if you ask me... hahaha

                      I am marrying a first generation Dominican-American. His parents are from Santo Domingo and moved to Washington Heights to have a family. He was born and raised here but his parents moved back to DR.

                      One time he did try to convince me that he needed a green card. It was quite a funny conversation.
