Destination wedding in Punta Cana, Jerelyn and Mariano. Kukua restaurant.
Jerelyn and Mariano are one of our couples from 2020 that had to postpone their wedding to 2021, but besides that obvious obstacle, their wedding was their vision executed to perfection.
The bride told us that she always dreamed about beach wedding with her favorite colors turquoise and coral. Their wedding venue Kukua Punta Cana was full with vibrant flowers. The short table centerpieces, matched with hanging ones, all filled with abundance of flowers and greenery. The ceremony gazebo was beautifully decorated with a flower garland. The welcome table had a Polaroid photo guest book and a beautiful memorial to the groom’s uncle who recently passed away.
This magical love story started all the way back to the elementary school. They’ve meet in the 5th grade where they held hands and called each other boyfriend and girlfriend. Then they started dating in senior year of high school, got 2 beautiful girls but ended up separating for 5 years. Fortunately, they found their way back to each other and 2 years later Mariano proposed on Christmas morning with a little help of the girls.
The bride walked the aisle in Galina signature dress from David’s Bridal, embellished from top to bottom with off the shoulder’s sleeves. Bridesmaid’s wore sheer coral dresses, daughters off the shoulder sheer turquoise dresses and the men wore linen vest and pants which helped them stay comfortable in the heat. Al around gorgeous, relaxed tropical look.
Jerelyn told us that the most special moment of the wedding was their first dance. “We picked a duet song that described us and our journey so well. Even though we were surrounded by many people it felt that we were alone just listening to our song and practicing to dance in our living room just like we did at home before the wedding”.
The word of advice from our bride and groom for the future couples heading on to the journey of planning their destination wedding: “Take it easy, enjoy the ride, don’t sweat the small stuff and remember everything happens for a reason and at it’s right time.”
