Exclusive Private Villa Wedding in the Dominican Republic by Rick Collins
I’m always looking for incredible destinations to share with you on the Brides Without Borders blog, but every so often, it’s a spectacular venue IN an incredible destination that takes centre stage. Today’s venue, Casa Kimball is an exclusive private ocean front villa located within a gated community in the Dominican Republic. Aside from its panoramic 180 degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, this 8 bedroom clifftop villa has all manner of luxurious touches that elevate it above and beyond the norm . . . The villa is fully staffed with a private chef, personal bartender, onsite concierge and more. There’s the infinity pool stretching 47 metres to the sea cliff, along with a private ocean front jacuzzi, karaoke, croquet, badminton, two cocktail bars and endless other ways to amuse yourself – or just as many to kick back and relax.
It seems that private villas have become one of the biggest trends for destination weddings in recent years, thanks to the truly bespoke service and privacy that they offer. They’re also a fantastic way to accommodate a large group, as well as allowing you to really spend time with your guests. Even though I’m not a huge fan of wedding trends (and the wedding industry as a whole also seems to be moving away from them in favour of more personal, unique-to-you events), this is one ‘fad’ that I would love to see continue. Hosting your wedding day in an exquisite private residence in one of the world’s most beautiful locations?? Sounds alright to me!
From the Photographer – Rick Collins of Love You Me Pictures: Melissa and Dick were married in the Dominican Republic at Casa Kimball, a villa located on the north shore of the island. It is an eight room, exclusive villa with a full staff, chef, and lots of quiet space right on the ocean. Melissa and Dick and their friends and family, however, were not interested in quiet for their wedding and party. Dancing into the early morning hours, the couple got only a few hours sleep before getting up to hit the beach in their wedding clothes.
