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.

Hard Rock Destination Wedding at Punta Cana, Kristen Ann and Wade

Hard Rock Destination Wedding at Punta Cana, Kristen Ann and Wade

Hard Rock Destination Wedding at Punta Cana, Kristen Ann and Wade

 

Kristen and Wade grew up in a small Delaware town. They’ve graduated together, shared many of the same friends, but they never dated. Not until later in life, when Wade wished Kristen a Happy Mother’s Day on Facebook, which ignited conversation that led to date at Timothy’s Newark Delaware.

Proposal was magical as Kristen explained. After asking all 4 of the kids for their blessing, Wade surprised Kristen with a proposal in their home.

They’ve chosen Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana for their wedding venue. Bride and groom wanted the beauty of the beach to shine, it was pretty important for them to have white sand and blue water as a back drop, so, the ceremony took place at Isla Beach. Also, they incorporated a Glass ceremony into the wedding. The bride told us: “We went to a local glass blower with our kids and each selected a color of glass powder. The ceremony was setup like a traditional sand ceremony, but the kids poured the glass into a vessel. When we return home, we will go back to the glass blower and each child will make a glass piece with the mixed glass powder from the wedding.

We included our kids in every decision we made, they are the center of our lives and we wanted them to be a huge part of our wedding. They helped us pick the resort, their dresses, the cake flavors, menu, etc.

Another touching detail was that the bride took a quote from the last late grandmother’s letter to her and incorporated it to her wedding dress. Kristen’s Grandmother passed away years ago, but their special bond still remains true. It was a special way to keep her close to the heart.

Kristen and Wade said that the most anticipated moment of the entire Hard Rock Destination wedding day was the First Look. It was a special time for just the two of us, Wade explained. Kristen was late, which caused a few jokes. We are each other’s best friend and we always find peace when we are together. Seeing each other before the ceremony calmed down any nerves and allowed us to stop and appreciate the love we share.

The reception was set up at Harmonica Gazebo with the highlight of the evening – hired entertainment HOTS Production with the Black and White Crazy Hour. The bride and the groom kept them as a secret from their wedding guests, but once the entertainers were on the dance floor so was everybody else, and that is how it was the entire evening.

Here is the bride and the groom’s words of advice for the future couples planning a Hard Rock Destination Wedding:

“Let the location shine, it’s beautiful and stops you from stressing over all those irrelevant details! We knew no one would remember the color of the tablecloths but we can guarantee everyone will remember the Crazy Hour!

The only people who know things were not as you planned are the two of you! A few details were lost in translation with our coordinator, but it didn’t matter to any of our guests!

Stop a few times during your day, look around and appreciate everything that is going on!”

It is always a privilege to witness two people declaring their love to one another, it is even more special to witness when two families merge into one love. Michelle and Michael’s wedding was exactly that kind of love that unites people.

All of their children had a special role during the wedding ceremony, with the oldest Michael’s son, who was performing the actual wedding ceremony and let me tell you it was awesome and then some! That ceremony gave the tone to the entire day, it was relaxed, emotional, fun and filled with love!

Hard Rock Resort destination wedding, Amber and Matt, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Hard Rock Resort destination wedding, Amber and Matt, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

We have a great pleasure to introduce our Hard Rock Resort gorgeous couple, Amber and Matt a high school sweethearts that life separated at first but then reunited again, speaking of true meaning of how real love always find its way, hey?

Since both of them shared same love for traveling and having huge wedding wasn’t never their thing, Amber and Matt chose Hard Rock Resort Punta Cana for their wedding venue. One more reason for choosing this Hotel was that Amber already visited Hard Rock Resort while on her business trip with her vitamin company LeVel in 2019 and she said that they all felt very safe and had so much fun, so she wanted the same thing for her family and friends as well.

Matt’s step mom Michele, who is at the same time best friend with Amber’s mom, helped Amber to choose a wedding dress. She opted for gorgeous Da Vinci laced mermaid wedding dress with sweetheart neckline.

If you are not already in love with this couple, wait until you hear about their engagement story! This will give you a serious heart eyes!

March 20th 2020 we were in Cabo San Lucas where he proposed to me, Amber told us. He wanted to propose to me on the beach at Lover’s Beach, however, that was the day that COVID pandemic started and president Trump closed the US borders with Mexico while we were there. Cringe! We had to run to the airport an figure out what was going on. It was a mess! We were not for sure if we were going to be returning to our hotel so he was unable to propose to me at the beach, but he chose a beautiful location on the 7th story balcony where we had spent a few nights and days whale watching in the Pacific. When he went to pull the ring out of the bag it flew out onto the ground in almost fell off the 7th story balcony but he caught it!!

I don’t know about you guys, but my heart just stopped a bit there!
