Kelly & Jeff: Chic Villa Vows

On the north coast of the Dominican Republic, a luxury private villa set the scene for Kelly & Jeff’s intimate destination wedding. Casa Kimball, an eight-bedroom complex, is perched on the coast with stunning views of the ocean and tropical landscape, providing the ideal venue for friends and family to gather. The villa’s service staff and expert wedding planning team handled all of the ceremony and reception details, including the cake, flowers and decor, so that the couple could simply celebrate.

These beautiful photos by Mango Studios illustrate how an elegant and subtle color palette of taupe, pale pink and grey blended beautifully with the villa’s contemporary design and the turquoise water. The wedding party fashions were particularly exquisite: Kelly’s gown was designed by Sarah Houston Bridal Couture, Jeff’s suit was by MADE Clothing Co., the bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses in soft shades of pink, and flower girls looked adorable in white fascinators and pink tulle skirts.

We particularly love the first look session where the couple uses white parasols as fun props for the photos taken on a terrace overlooking the ocean. Other delightful details included a cupcake decorating station, cigar bar and Champagne tower. The celebration was capped off with a display of fireworks in the Caribbean night sky.
