Mark and Lauren were introduced at a July 4th party at The Hamptons by Lauren’s best friend, who had been dating a good friend of Mark. They immediately got along really well and after that weekend, the rest was history!  Truly a match made in heaven, you don’t believe me? What if I tell you their favorite couple thing?  They love to travel to random new places together in search of the perfect sunsets. Romantic, I know!

Waiting for Summer to go to the beach with friends was their favorite part of the year.  So of course,  when it was time to decide where they would get married, Punta Cana, with its beaches and its sunsets, was everything they ever dreamed of.


The incredible team of Claire Duran Weddings & events  transformed the grounds at Kukua Punta Cana Beach Club to give Lauren + Mark the most beautiful, colorful, sun-soaked wedding celebration with the open and seaside reception they had dreamed of  as it had never been done at that venue before!   People dined and danced all night long under bistro lights, touched by a Caribbean breeze and the most gorgeous water backdrop.

Mark and Lauren’s wedding was the perfect example that your destination wedding can be timeless without compromising a colorful palette.  All of it completed with one of our favorite elements of the day:  The cake, created by  Bake Artistry and inspired by Momental‘s watercolor stationery details. Truly an edible masterpiece.



Working with Lauren and Mark was the sweetest experience, and we are happy to say that they enjoyed working with us too, as per their words about their experience:

Simply the best!  My husband and I just got married in May 2019 and the amazing Asia and team captured our beautiful day!  We just received the album and wow! It is so amazing and exceeded my expectations! The box was in perfect condition. It came out so beautifully and we are so happy with it!  Thank you again for making our day so memorable and special! I can’t recommend Asia Pimentel Photography enough!!  Not only did all my pictures come out beautiful but, Asia made the picture taking process fun! She was able to capture so many candid moments that we will forever cherish!! We also loved how they captured a lot of our guests too especially during moments we as the bride and groom missed! Asia made sure to we looked beautiful and natural in all our photos too which is great! Anyone looking for a photographer especially in DR, we highly suggest hiring Asia as you will NOT regret it! She is simply the best and wonderful and we hope to work with her and team again in the future!
