“Spending time with all of our close family and friends by the pool, dinner, and bar. Having all of them be within the same vicinity does not happen all too often, much less in Punta Cana,” said Cesar, who recently celebrated the destination wedding of his dreams with wife Andrea and all the people they love. “Andrea and I told ourselves that if and when we tie the knot, we would do so in “grandioso” style – something truly unforgettable! Thanks to DestinationWeddings.com, this was in fact the case.”
Held at the Majestic Colonial Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic (where Cesar is from), Andrea and Cesar’s destination wedding was such a gorgeous, joy-filled day. Captured by Tropical Studios, we just love this setting and the way these two look at each other. It’s clear that’s it’s been that way since they met 5 years ago online.
“We went on our first date on where I showed her around popular spots in New York City, dinner and finished our first night together walking under a full moon by Chelsea Piers,” said Cesar. “Andrea was as sweet and beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. Fast-forward a few years, and I surprised Andrea by proposing to her in front of her family and friends back in her home town of Albert Lea, Minnesota on Thanksgiving. She said YES, and so our wedding plans began! We had lots to be thankful for that day.”

With expert help from the team at DestinationWeddings.com, Andrea and Cesar’s wedding was everything they dreamed of and more. But the most memorable moment had to be when they got to walk down the aisle together for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. Rodriguez. “Our hands were up in the air as Bruno Mars played in the background, and our guests cheered us on in celebration,” said Cesar. “At that moment, every piece of joy and happiness was in unison!”
