Wedding at Casa de Campo
I grew up visiting Altos de Chavon and alway dreamed of getting married there one day. That dream came true on November 22nd.
We said our vows overlooking the Chavon River on a beautiful evening. My guests are still raving about the views, the food and the amazing service. Planning a wedding from another country can be stressful. But Theresa Calcos answered EVERY question and made my vision come to life. I called her my wedding planning fairy godmother -- and the title is so true! The process of planning a wedding using one of the wedding packages is seamless. Theresa even created a wedding planning workbook with every detail. You're able to customize each package to reflect your own style. Instead of going through the trouble of contacting many vendors for things like catering, flowers, decor, cake, entertainment... it's all arranged through the package. This definitely saved me a lot of headaches because I didn't have to worry about set up or vendors arriving on time on the wedding day. The CDC staff can also provide vendor recommendations for photography and videography.
Every food item was delicious. We had both Dominican and American guests with varying food requirements. They ALL loved the food. The servers also ensured everyone had a drink in hand throughout the entire reception. I've never had service like that at a wedding in the U.S. (and we've been to many weddings!).
The entertainment we booked through Casa de Campo was also excellent. We had a cigar roller at our cocktail hour and it was a big hit with our guests. The DJ included in the package was excellent. He provided music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. He kept the energy up throughout the night. Additionally, we had the Hora Loca (crazy hour) dancers after dinner. I've never seen some of our friends dance as much as they did during that hour!
One of the most wonderful things about having a destination wedding is that you have multiple days to spend with your guests. It was a joy to watch our families and friends get to know each other. The Bliss package that we selected included a welcome cocktail that allowed us to create a wonderful event to kick off the celebration.
I want to take an additional moment to just rave about Theresa, who carefully crafted the new wedding packages. She made every aspect of wedding planning manageable, organized and fun! She also happened to be on site for my wedding weekend and was a tremendous help! She has selected excellent vendors to be part of the packages.
If you're trying to decide where to have your destination wedding -- you can feel confident that your guests will have an amazing time at Casa de Campo.Sent on 12/24/2019

I had my wedding at casa de campo on December 1st, 2019. The wedding was everything I have ever dreamed of. Absolutely perfect. Theresa was essential in all of the planning for the wedding. Her suggestions were amazing. She knew exactly what time would be perfect for the ceremony, what decor would fit, and she completely understood my vision for my big day. We had the ceremony on the stage of the amphitheater with a gorgeous chuppah.The cocktail hour and reception was in Dye Fore, which was simply magical. Everything from getting ready the morning of, to the crazy hour we had at the end of the night went perfectly. I absolutely couldn’t have done this without her!
Jabnia, the wedding operations assistant, was essentialin executing our wedding plans and answering all of our questions. During the wedding trip, she was always available to us and would help us with anything we needed. She was always patient and listened to us with any concerns we had, and promptly fixed them or did what she could. Overall, she was a big help and an essential part of making sure the day went according to plan.
Margot , the reservation supervisor, was taking care of checking in and providing accommodations for our guests. She helped us with some reservation issues we had, and was very professional and kind. We wouldn’t be able to sort it out without her! By the way , personal thank you to Margo for getting in the car and picking up the bridal bouquet which we forgot on a bridal suit.
Kevin was part of the wedding team . He was doing his best to try to fulfill any wishes we had . He even helped drive around some of the grandparents! I really appreciated his kindness and I would recommend working with him and his team to anyone.
Also personal thank you to Yury. I think she is one of the managers at the reception desk. I hope I am spelling her name correctly . She went above and beyond to accommodate some of the guests and made my mom’s life much easier .
I can’t not to mention the amazing food we had and the presentation of the food was superb .
And of course our photographers . Martin and Sebastian, you are simply the best !
Thank you for everything ! With love Diana.

If I could give a 10 out of 5 I would! I had the most AMAZING wedding experience. I am sure that Casa de Campo has since revamped their wedding department after the latter reviews because I can attest to extremely accommodating and professional staff. Without any fees, I was able to bring in outside decorations,flowers,favors, and wedding cake. This helped out tremendously with our budget. All of my 40 guests were marveled by the one of a kind venue (Altos de Chavon) and the perfect execution led by the wonderful Ibani Cruzante, who was my wedding coordinator (a complimentary service given to all brides who book a wedding with Casa de Campo). I can go on and on about the wedding of my dreams but simply put: book your wedding with them! You won't be disappointed at all!Sent on 07/11/2016

The responsive time on emails is slow but honestly, I believe this is the island way and we need to chill and relax.
