Marlene Parron and John Bingaman, both from New York first met at a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton. Little did they know that this was going to be the beginning of their happily ever after…
Marlene, who coincidently became roommates with one of John’s high school friend made it easy for John to find an excuse for his frequent visits. These visits over time blossomed romantically for the two of them. They were inseparable until John had to relocate for business in London. Being away from one another wasn’t easy but they kept their spirits high by always saying, “absence makes the heart grow fonder”.
It wasn’t until a holiday together in Croatia that made them both realized that they no longer could live apart. John asked for Marlene’s hand in marriage on a romantic walk in October 2010 where she happily accepted.
The setting for their nuptials was set in Santo Domingo – Dominican Republic. Their wedding venue was at the Historic Hostal Nicolas de Ovando located in the colonial quarters on the famed street Las Damas. It was the perfect location since Marlene is from the Dominican Republic and John’s parents loved history. The celebration was beautiful lasting late into the early morning! Both groom and bride were glowing the entire day.
We are so thrilled to share and bring this incredible wedding to life through our images. Thank you John and Marlene for allowing us to be apart of your celebration!
