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.”
Kukua venue at Punta Cana. It was a perfect day in the Caribbean. We were heading towards another piece of haven secluded in between two major hotels on Punta Cana shores, Bahia Principe Luxury Resort and Riu Palace. Passing by golf courses we hit the fairy-tale view, cozy road full of greenery, side entrance prepared for wedding guests and incredibly decorated covered salon. From the salon, over the sparkling blue pool, you can see in the full Caribbean glory gorgeous gazebo nested in the middle of the beach overlooking the ocean. Kukua venue wedding was in full preparation swing. Perfectly orchestrated, stuff was decorating straight from the heart to fulfill Bride’s dream… On the side of gazebo there was prepared a covered beach house, Palapa. A solution for the case of rain. Little decorated chapel, next to the ocean but not on the beach which make it perfect for religious ceremonies. While I do’s ware echoing over the ocean, indistinct murmur and cheering of guests at Kukua venue amazed with pure manifestation of love in front of their eyes, starts to expand on the beach and streams of good food and exotic drinks start to flow all the way into the reception. Party by the pool… Love ware shining… While we were leaving into the night our hearts was full of love and joy.
