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.

Hard Rock vows renewal ceremony at a beautiful beach in Punta Cana, Anisha and Nitin

Hard Rock vows renewal ceremony at a beautiful beach in Punta Cana, Anisha and Nitin.

To quote Brides Magazine “A vow renewals are a heartfelt way to celebrate your love and reaffirm the promises you made to each other on your wedding day.” Exactly that happened one week ago, at gorgeous white sand beach at Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana.

“Our wedding was beautiful, but not what we wanted. Since everything happened so quickly, we didn’t really get a chance to plan anything. Since then, all I ever wanted was to have a little ceremony with our loved ones at some beautiful beach. Life got so busy that it took us 11 years to finally plan the wedding we wanted” Anisha told us.

The couple had symbolic vows renewal ceremony at Hard Rock hotel beach. They also added Mehndi (traditional form of temporary skin decoration in which decorative designs are created on a person’s body, using a paste, created from the powdered dry leaves of the henna plant) and changed their clothes just before the reception, into traditional clothes made by Sawan Gandhi, as the special nod to their Indian heritage.

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!
