Nicole + Roberto’s wedding comes to us from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic with a grand and historic cathedral ceremony and a very glamorous country club reception. I am completely taken with how royal this couple looks…Nicole emulates beauty and the air of a princess in her ivory Oscar de la Renta silk organza strapless pleated gown. So breathtaking. This is a gorgeous wedding through and through, with all in attendance dressed so elegantly. Enjoy!
Nicole + Roberto | November 17, 2012 | Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
We had a lovely ceremony held in America’s first and oldest Cathedral (Catedral Primada de America), located in Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone. We wanted to get married there not only because of its historic significance, but also because of its beautiful architecture and stunning interiors.
The Reception was held at The Grand Salon in our Country Club. It was decorated all white and silver with big Christmas tress with lights everywhere. It looked magical and elegant. Definitely a dream wedding!
Nicole’s Dress Search
I always knew what style I wanted to get married with, but when I saw my dress I knew it was THE ONE. I tried on a few more dresses, but this was the only one that made me smile.
How Nicole Felt in Her Wedding Dress
I felt Beautiful, Like a Princess and Special.
Why Nicole Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
This is such a gorgeous dress that it didn’t feel right to leave it in my closet. So I decided to have it professionally dry cleaned and give someone else the chance to feel as special.
