Hard Rock Punta Cana is one of the biggest resorts in the Dominican Republic, if not the biggest. It has 2700 rooms and it can hold up to 5000 people. Massive areas, huge pools, a number of restaurants and of course, lots of weddings.
Because of the number of locations and the great distance between them Hard Rock is able to have up to 8 or 9 weddings on the same day. You may wonder why this happens, and it’s not just a matter of size or popularity, the reason why they have so many weddings is that they know how to do things the right way.
Profesional wedding planners, vendors and staff members work hard every day and in every single wedding to make somebody’s dream come to life, and let me tell you, they succeed.
Same-Sex Weddings at Hard Rock Punta Cana
One of the things we love most about this resort, besides the amazing quality of the events they put together, is that they are pro LGBT weddings. This is of huge importance to us since we cannot say the same thing about all resorts in the area, unfortunately.
Even though gay marriage is not legal in the Dominican Republic, any LGBT couple can have a symbolic ceremony and a beautiful same-sex wedding. We were so happy to see a couple like Lilliana and Katherin loving each other so much and sharing that love with their closest family and friends that taking photos and doing their video was easy.
Not only Hard Rock welcomes LGBT couples, but they promote a non-discriminatory policy by giving their employees diversity and sensitivity training and actually employing staff who reflect the diversity of the community in the Dominican Republic. And let me tell you something, this is quite an achievement.
Should I get a Wedding Video?
As wedding photographers, we are all about capturing moments of one of the most important days in a couple’s life. We live for the spontaneous laughs, emotional reactions, and fun anecdotes. We are able to capture all of that through our photos, but what about the video?
Wedding videos or any videos are able to make an anecdote a moving memory! Have you ever found an old video of when you were young, or when your parents were young? It’s just an indescribable feeling, isn’t it? Now imagine showing your own wedding to your children or even grandchildren and making them feel like they were there!
If you are not sure, just click play on Katherin and Lilliana’s video and you will understand what I am talking about.
I mean, I was there and I get goosebumps whenever I play it!
