RIU OCHO RIOS - BEST IMAGES Destination Wedding Photography

Recommended Posts

I reside in Canada but my destination wedding was at the Rio Ocho Rios in April 2012. We had about 40 guests and everyone was very impressed with the services, food, entertainment and attentive staff at this hotel.


A hard reality for us was that the wedding coordinator, Chandlyn, was not very present on the wedding day, especially at the reception. I think she has the role of coordinating multiple weddings around the same time. Make sure you bring your own decor for the wedding reception, prearrange a seating plan, and give someone the role of coordinating it or you will be disappointed.


I would like to say the best experience of our destination wedding was from Michael Sondern, the head photographer there at best images destination wedding photography. He was very professional and friendly. He gave lots of direction to us and our wedding party. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. The photos were excellent and with very high quality. The edititing was done exactly as we requested. To add, 2 years after our wedding we lost all of our saved wedding photos because of a virus. We were devastated. Shortly after contacting Michael he re-sent all of our pictures for FREE. I highly recommend using his services. It was worth every penny! I would also like to add that we were very happy with the video of our wedding as well. This is another service that I highly recommend.


Good luck to everyone. All the best.

    • 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.
