For Mr and Mrs Marrero, it was the breathtaking view of the Chavón river lying below the plaza of Altos de Chavón that captured their imaginations and made them chose a Casa de Campo wedding for their special day.
Having summered in Casa de Campo with her family since she was 5 years old, Brianna Garcia (now Marrero) a 26 year old student working on her PhD in psychology in Miami, always knew should would get married at the St. Stanislaus church in Altos de Chavón – the perfect Casa de Campo wedding.
Brianna met her husband, Paul Marrero a 29 year-old representative of a pharmaceutical company through mutual friends and the couple now live together in Miami.
For Casa de Campo it was an honor to host the holy union of Brianna and Paul, as a new chapter in their lives commenced, a celebration they shared with 130 guests from Miami, California, Puerto Rico and of course Casa de Campo.
And who better to tell the story of one of the best nights of their lives than the gorgeous bride, Brianna herself…
@cdcliving: Tell us a little bit about you. Where are you from? In what do you work? Where and how did you meet?
My name is Brianna, I’m 26 years old and I live in Miami, FL. I’m a student working on my PhD in psychology. Paul is 29 years old and also lives in Miami and is representative of a pharmaceutical company. We met by mediation of some friends at a party.
@cdcliving: Why did you choose to do a Casa de Campo wedding at Altos de Chavón?
Our family has been visiting Casa de Campo every summer since I was 5 years old. When I was very small, walking through Altos de Chavón I told my parents, pointing to the church, “one day I will get married here” and from the moment we communicated them our plans they already knew the fate of our wedding. Casa de Campo is full of my childhood memories. I could not think of a more appropriate and sentimental place to get married.
@cdcliving: Tell us about your special day. How would you describe it?
The only way to describe my special day is “unforgettable”. My parents managed to give the world’s the most spectacular wedding. It was a weekend full of happiness for all of our family and friends shared our joy. On Friday we had a welcome party at the Beach Club by Le Cirque on Minitas Beach. All guests came dressed in white. We had a buffet of typical Dominican food and Dominican music, with perico ripiao. It was fun.
@cdcliving: How did the organizing your wedding feel?
The day of my wedding was the most special day of my life. Thanks to my family and with the help of Martha Richardson, Betty Medina and the entire team at Casa de Campo. The organization was spectacular, Casa de Campo has always had amazing service and it was proven on the day of my wedding.
@cdcliving: Which was the most special moment?
The most special moment was walking down the aisle with my father and seeing my husband waiting for me, I will never forget the way he looked at me.
@cdcliving: If you could do something different, what would you do?
Nothing. Everything was perfect.
@cdcliving: Where did your wedding reception take place?
The reception took place in the Dye Fore Terrace. The view, the environment and climate were very important factors that night.
@cdcliving: Tell us about your dress.
My dress is a design by Justin Alexander with silver tones and pearls.
@cdcliving: What was the theme of your wedding?
I am very simple and I like neutral colors so I preferred all white with silver, gold and crystal details. I love flowers and lights and a perfect environment was achieved.
