Destination weddings are one of my specialties, and I write a lot about them on my blogs. I’ve also written articles in such publications such as Destination I Do Magazine, Ceremony Magazine and Destination Wedding and Honeymoons Magazine . Villa weddings in the Dominican Republic are some of the most romantic and intimate ways to tie the knot. As far as Caribbean weddings, Villa Flor de Cabrera located on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic is one of my favorite villas.
Located next to the town of Cabrera, Villa Flor de Cabrera is a fantastic choice for couples looking to get married in an exotic Dominican locale. Heike and Stephen are a lovely and quirky couple from Seattle who chose to have their close family present for their destination wedding. They and their families were the exclusive guests of the villa for the entire week, and I had the privilege of being immersed in family life for several days while I took photos of all the festivities. Different activities were arranged for everyone to enjoy, from beach picnics to outings to the local cigar maker, Babanuco. Martha Cabrera, was the officiant for the wedding and did a fabulous job as always. The villa chef, Lubin, is a master at creating delicious creations from the local food supply, as well as procuring rare spices, high-quality meet and hard to find seafood. He did not disappoint for this occasion! The staff at the villa are all top notch. For more information on Dominican wedding villas, check out our Dominican Republic destination weddings guide.
Congratulations Heike and Stephen!
