Ashley Pickens and Don Brumfield were married on the Black Ink Crew Chicago episode which aired on November 28, 2016. Where did Don and Ashley from the Black Ink Crew, Chicago get married and where was that mansion? Read on! The wedding scenes were filmed in the Dominican Republic in June at the Melia Caribe Tropical resort. See the images below.

So here’s the big question? Where was the mansion where Don and Ashley were married on Black Ink Crew Chicago?  It was on the grounds of the Punta Cana Resort, (which has mansions and a couple resorts on its property) but be aware that it’s a little tricky to track down the owners of that particular rental, and did you notice that the staff’s faces were blurred out on the show? During the scene when they were having breakfast, for example, the staff’s faces were obscured. The Punta Cana Resort didn’t want the resort’s name or staff on the Black Ink (which features people of color).  And the name of the resort isn’t mention in the Special Thanks section in the credits on the show.

Don had his share of bachelor party thrills with plenty of strippers, and there were some questionable moments when he had a stripper in his bedroom in the DR. Ashley, who saw evidence of his fun via a snapshots on her brother’s fun. Instead of her brother sitting back and telling Ashley what really happened, he joined in on the fun; he picked up one of the strippers, flung her over his shoulder and took her off.

Ashley was devastated. She cried off her make-up and was on the brink of calling the wedding off. Don was late, hungover from all of the partying that he did the night before. And his white wedding  dress shirt was dirty. Ashley screamed her frustrations at him, but eventually decided that Don had a good heart and decided to go on with the wedding after she got her make-up touched up.

The wedding was held in the wedding gazebo at the Melia Caribe Tropical. The hotel boasts nine outdoor pools and a romantic and idyllic location for weddings.
