Budget Breakdown: Samantha + Michael's Destination Wedding

Samantha and Michael wanted to host their nearest and dearest in one of their favorite places, Dominican Republic. We chose a private villa on the Casa de Campo resort. Most of the guests were able to stay at the villa where we also hosted the wedding events. Combining the lodging and wedding day venue minimized additional expenses.
