Hyatt Cap Cana, Indian wedding Punta Cana, Hyatt Ziva

Couples from different religious and cultural backgrounds face unique challenges when putting together a wedding. So did Carrie and Sundeep when they planned their American – Indian multicultural destination wedding in Punta Cana. Indian weddings are traditionally multi-day affairs, and involve many intricate ceremonies, such as the painting of the hands and feet of the bride called a mehndi. Garlands are presented to guests of honor instead of corsages, and lots of flower or rose petals are thrown for good luck. This Indian wedding Punta Cana was no different.

How does one blend the colorful exuberance and extended ritual of Indian weddings with the tidy elegance of an American wedding? Well, my humble opinion is that Carrie and Sundeep did excellent job with their wedding. It was a two-day celebration of love and happiness with many of their family members and friends present. Bear in mind that this was a destination wedding, with having almost 100 people present, gives you information about just how much the bride and the groom are loved. Truly, I can personally testify, they are very kind and lovable people.

Indian wedding Punta Cana celebration started with henna tattoo, famous Mehndi, for the girls at Hyatt Ziva Rooftop Terrace. Mehndi represents the bond of matrimony; it signifies the love and affection between the couple and their families. Also, a fun-filled, nostalgic sit-down for the bride, her cousins, siblings, friends, aunts and others is perfect to put everyone into marriage mood. Carrie also prepared bangles for her bridal squad. An absolute must for every Indian bride, Gold, glass, diamond-studded, sparkling bracelets with the tinkling sound they make when they are worn is reminiscent of the laughter that marks the joy of a wedding day. There were signature cocktails, handmade cookies with bride and groom names and Maang Tikka’s for everyone. Later afternoon of the same day, was greeted with an awesome welcome party – Sangeet. Sangeet was held in gorgeously elegant Hyatt Ziva Salon complimented with tropical touches to match the main wedding theme. The bride and the groom as well as many of the guests wore traditional clothes and they all were an absolute pleasure for the eyes. Elegant welcome dinner followed up with incredibly fun party.

The Indian wedding Punta Cana day started with bride and groom’s preparation. The bride started in the Hyatt’s Bridal suite, hair and makeup sessions was interrupted only with laughter and champagne bottles popping. The groom had his own goo’s squad back in Hyatt Zilara Presidential suite. Wedding ceremony was on Ziva Beach with absolutely breathtaking lush gazebo adored with fresh tropical leaves. Carrie and Sundeep hired artist to do a live painting out of their ceremony right there on the spot as it happened. How incredible is that?

Cocktail hour and the wedding reception was at the Larimar Garden and it was out of this world! Everything planned to the smallest details. Seating plan, custom made cake topper, glass tropical leaves with names as escort cards, live band, starlight dance floor and cold fires for the first dance, to name just a few. No need to mention, that the dancing part of the party started with Dominican Carnival dancers and ended up with everyone dancing deep into the night…

Hyatt Ziva. Blondie and Dave’s Vows Renewal. Vow renewals hold a special place in our hearts, because it is always about celebrating life, love and marriage!

After a certain time, many couples decide to renew their wedding vows. The reason behind is reaffirmation of the love that they nourished for each other over the years, which very often got even bigger over the time. It always gets us right in the feels, because it gives us the real-life image on how, all those couples whose wedding celebration we got the honor of capturing on photography and video, will love each other after, five, ten, or more years.

Blondie and David are one of those couples that decides to renew their vows and celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary in style at Hyatt Ziva, Cap Cana in Dominican Republic.

Ziva and Zilara are one of the newest hotels in growing region of Punta Cana. They are located in gated community of Cap Cana at Juanillo Beach, which easily can be one of the most beautiful beaches in Punta Cana. Zilara is adult only hotel and Ziva is family friendly, both all-inclusive and both quite sexy resorts offering ultimate escape to the Caribbean Paradise. Swim-up bars, infinity pools, numerous restaurants and bars all wrapped into gorgeous colors of white sand and turquoise Ocean. Now, you can see how all of this made a perfect backdrop for photos and video of Blondie and Dave’s vows renewal!

We got the honor to meet their daughter Keyon who gave us a little insight of how this love story started in the first place:

“25 years ago, Blondie and Dave Nelson were in the same place at the same time at church seeking the Most High. Spiritual destiny brought them together. Dave praises Blondie as the most virtuous woman he ever met, while Blondie praises Dave as a mighty man of valor! Now they have come together as one, serving others, traveling the world, enjoying children and grandchildren, family and a host of friends whom all adore them. As they continue to be the most loving and giving people, they have been called to be together a quarter of a century later and beyond!!!”
