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.”

Punta Cana wedding venue suited for the kings. Simone and Kowan’s Kukua wedding.

Since, Simone herself is a wedding organizer, she did due diligence to research all the Punta Cana wedding venue, Dominican Republic. One of them was keep popping up in the feed, with countless positive reviews and couples’ experiences. The choice was made: Kukua Punta Cana. Oh, boy, they did live up to the expectations!

Simeone and Kowan met during a mutual family event. Kowan eat jalapeno poppers, by mistake and by pure coincidence there was Simone to offer a relief for his aches, neither of them knowing that they will be each other’s reliefs and supports in decades to come! Yeah, I know, life is funny that way.

Many dates, parties and events later together, Kowan popped the question at the annual BBQ party, and since their following year was filled with traveling, he had an idea of making the event for the entire family. What is better to have all your family and friends on the vacation and in absolutely the best mood for your wedding, then choosing perfect tropical destination in the Caribbean.

Wedding ceremony was at the beach, with round fresh floral gazebo, that had matching colors of the wedding, yellow and royal blue. The reception tables were adorned with high floral centerpieces and the sweetheart table had cascading floral boa. Everything was made from fresh flowers, yellow roses, blue hydrangeas and sunflowers.

After the reception, party was spiced up with fire dancers and continued deep into the night.

Kukua restaurant Punta Cana, amazing Kayla & Jason boho wedding

Kukua restaurant Punta Cana, amazing Kayla & Jason boho wedding

Kukua restaurant Punta Cana was a host for a wedding of stylish New York couple Kayla and Jason. They always shared the love for each other and travel and adventure! Kayla and Jason organized a never-seen-before bohemian wedding on the beach in Dominican Republic. Elegant local venue, Kukua restaurant Punta Cana was filled with pampas grass, hanging centerpieces, and A LOT of fresh flowers!

“Our wedding decor was boho based! So much thought was put into my decor that I think the wedding planners themselves wanted to fire me! It was so important to me to design my own decor from flowers, specific placement, and centerpieces. I’m pretty sure they needed to order all pampas grass available in DR! There was no such thing as NOT ENOUGH pampas grass or macrame. All 50 of Our macrame place-mats were handmade just for the big day! The bridesmaids macrame bouquet wraps were personally cut and shaped. Our ‘The Moore’s” neon sign hanging on the greenery wall with the boho chair was a must!” the bride told us.

Circular wedding ceremony infinity arch added an extra modern touch with a perfect mixture of pampas grass in-between white, ivory, blush, greenery and terracotta color-based flowers.

The bride looked breathtaking in her Pearl by Enzoani wedding dress, while handsome groom, looked sharp and on point with his suit – Bar III. The outdoor ceremony took place on the beach, where the couple exchanged their personalized wedding vows.

At the end of the night all of the guests (bride and groom included) ended in the swimming pool. I believe that the explanation here is not needed to describe how fun was that!

After this amazing wedding day, we went to do a trash the dress photoshoot, this time with a twist! By Kayla’s wish we added underwater shoot at famous Punta Cana Cenote. Scroll down to see the results.

Kukua Beach Club, Marion and Thomas Punta Cana wedding, Dominican Republic

Kukua Beach Club, Marion and Thomas Punta Cana wedding, Dominican Republic

Kukua Beach Club, Marion and Thomas Punta Cana wedding, Dominican Republic.

Love is when someone turns your world upside down, and it feels right for the first time!

Marion and Thomas had an extraordinary intimate private wedding ceremony and romantic dinner at Kukua Beach Club and Restaurant in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. They came all the way from Germany to Punta Cana to bring to reality and enjoy in their dream wedding. Marion and Thomas told us that they did not want a standard wedding, so they choose black wedding dress for the bride and white suit for the groom paired with custom made black wedding rings and the date of their anniversary will be each year on Valentines day!

Here is what Marion said about planning a wedding in Punta Cana:

“The inspiration for our wedding day has already taken place a year before, when Thomas propose on the beach, when we came home, we started planning for our destination wedding. I always had a dream, a wedding on the beach with only the two of us, me in a black wedding dress and Thomas in a white suit, and a bridal bouquet of white and deep black roses.” Thomas made this dream come through. We did not want an elegant decoration too pompous or exaggerated, said Marion. We remained true to our colors black and white also in the decoration. In Dominican Republic there are no real black roses. Only dark red, so I brought black roses from Germany. We had two German songs played that could not have better described our relationship and love for each other. The whole day was a dream from the first to the last moment with so many emotions which are unforgettable thanks to our photographer Milan and our wedding planner Mayte from Kukua Beach Club and their crew. They are both very dear to us and we have in them new wonderful friends for life.

Here is what Thomas told us about their relationship:

“Our relationship has been a fairy tale since the first day. The special thing is that we weren’t searching for the special person but found it. Relationship between us is magical and indescribable, based on trust, faithfulness, honesty, consideration, understanding, and deep, caring love for which there are no words. She is very special. We understand each other without words. What one thinks the other says it.

We are both positively crazy, and enjoy our time together as much as possible, with beautiful moments and experiences. Short trips, long-distance travel, meeting friends and family, strolling around the city, having a nice meal, cooking together, or just chilling out on the sofa, etc. And surprise each other with little things again and again.

This saying applies to both of us:

Sometimes you have to go through hell first to be able to dance on the clouds later.

If I describe our relationship with words then it will be these:

Give without asking,

Take without owning,

Sharing without asking,

Hold without being tied up…

Love is when someone turns your world upside down, and it feels right for the first time!”

Thomas then surprised Marion with a Cadillac on their wedding day and a heart necklace that was made to match their custom-made rings in Regensburg, a Bavarian medieval German city.

Ashley & Komi’s Elopement at Kukua beach Club & Restaurant, Punta Cana Dominican Republic

It was a perfect day for a January wedding Elopement at Kukua restaurant, in the Caribbean. It was the experience of a totally intimate wedding celebration. It was a day focused on just the two of them. Elopements strip away the pressure, anxiety and obligation related with having a traditional wedding. Weather couldn’t been better. Punta Cana is well known for it’s great tropical weather all-year-round. A beautiful pyramid-like wedding arch all made of greenery has been custom made in the middle of the beach for their wedding ceremony, waiting for their entry. Kukua restaurant is located on the gorgeous Bavaro Beach, so behind their gazebo there was breathtaking view of the turquoise ocean and stunning sandy beach. Perfect backdrop to any destination wedding. Kukua Punta Cana is well known for their beautiful custom designs for each and every one of their destination weddings. The glowing couple where full of emotions and beside the gorgeous sunset, the day was illuminated by their smiles too. After emotional ceremony, they had romantic dinner under the same gazebo on the beach with gentle ocean breeze and gazing at starry sky and each other eyes.

It was true pleasure to witness their love, I hope you will enjoy in the photos as much as I enjoyed in working with these gorgeous people.
