But don’t just take my word for it:

Below I’ll show you tons of wedding photos from their special day so you can see for yourself. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. And even though I will share some insights and I tend to ramble a bit, the goal here is to show you a real wedding at Kukua Restaurant & Beach Club. That way, you can decide if it’s a good fit for your own beach wedding.

And even more than that… you can get a feel for our photography style to decide if you’d want our team to be there for you to capture all the memories from your wedding day. So let’s get started with a look into Kukua.


Kukua Restaurant & Beach Club

This tropical haven is set against the backdrop of a sandy white beach, swaying palm trees, and a stunning ocean view. The entire venue exudes a bubbly and radiant charm – especially on wedding days. You’ll feel the love as soon as you arrive!

Honestly. it’s an amazing location for a wedding! 

Mayte, the brilliant wedding planner behind the scenes, works tirelessly to make each celebration extraordinary. She is an incredible decorator and her designs will blow you away. I bet you’ll be surprised at how effortlessly she does it all, too. Her passion shines through at each event, and she also ensures that every wedding is a unique reflection of the couple’s love story.

Forget one-size-fits-all packages. Kukua Restaurant & Beach Club allows you to create a wedding day that’s just for you. They’ll work with you to bring your vision to life, and they’ll help you find the best vendors (clears throat) so you can have a wonderful team by your side all day long. 

On the wedding day:

You and your bridesmaids will get ready in the air-conditioned bridal suite upstairs. There’s great lighting for photos and plenty of mirrors so you’ll know you look your best! The groom and his guys will get ready in the groom’s room so you don’t have to worry about running into each other before the ceremony. 

Speaking of the ceremony… You can choose to get married on the beach or in the covered palapa. Both are stunning, with amazing views! Then you and your guests will head to the restaurant for an amazing dinner along with some heartfelt speeches from your guests. And finally, dance the night away, beachside with all of your closest family and friends.

It’s going to be a dream come true!


Breanne & Gilbert’s Wedding at Kukua Restaurant & Beach Club

This beautiful couple chose Kukua to be the canvas for their love story. With their toes in the sand and the mesmerizing ocean as their backdrop, they pledged their love in a heartfelt ceremony on the beach. They exchanged vows, exchanged rings, and then sealed it all with a kiss.

And let me just tell you:

It was gorgeous! Soft and feathery pampas grass swayed in the Caribbean breeze. Cream, burnt orange, and blush flowers brought a burst of color and romance. And different elements throughout the venue (like vintage bottles for the seating chart) brought the bohemian style to life. 

Before the ceremony, the bride and groom had a romantic first look. Then Breanne had an adorable first look with her dad which brought even more warmth to the day. Their ceremony was filled with love set the stage for a day of pure magic and cherished memories.

Following the vows, the celebration moved seamlessly into the cocktail hour and reception. Long wooden tables were adorned with lush centerpieces, candles, and delicate floral arrangements. String lights above cast a warm, romantic glow as the evening sky darkened, adding an extra touch of enchantment to the scene.

Laughter filled the air as heartfelt toasts were raised, and guests enjoyed a delectable feast that featured Kukua’s renowned cuisine. Breanne and Gilbert’s first dance was a mesmerizing moment, too, as cold sparklers burst behind them on the dance floor. 

The celebration continued into the night evolving into an electrifying party and an epic celebration that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
