Over the years Joseph and Nicholas have filmed luxury weddings in New York for their cinematography company. Once their own wedding planning commenced, they immediately knew they wanted something different. Since they love travel, tropical beaches and beautiful weather… they knew they were meant to have a destination wedding.
Taking inspiration from the hundreds of Indian weddings that they captured over the years and witnessing the love and joy of family and friends, Joseph and Nick knew they wanted to build a wedding experience that spanned over the course of three days filled with custom events for their closest friends and family to enjoy. The gushed that “…having three separate and distinct events gave us time to really spend and enjoy the company of our guests who flew from all around America to join us. That will always be a treasured memory!” Their 80 guests spent their days by the pools or on the beach, but nights were filled with good food, laughter, sipping on cocktails at the bars and lounges.
The grooms were thrilled to see their ideas come alive as they created their own style in collaboration with MercaFlor, JSAV and bringing down several of their own vendors from New York, including SHOUT Graphics. They worked closely with the weddings department at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana to have their visions come to life for each event, they state that it was a surreal and amazing feeling.
The three-day wedding was filled with lively colors, loving family, their closest friends, and amazing weather. It turned into an unforgettable vacation for their guests. Their wedding films allow them to relive the entire experience.
They love reminiscing on the moment they exchanged their vows on the beach. As it was a dream come true under a lush arrangement of flowing white flowers, the ocean breeze, and greenery.
