Have you been dreaming about getting married in the Dominican Republic? Well, Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana is a gorgeous option for your destination wedding.

With a beautiful beach, wonderful amenities, and a family-friendly atmosphere, it could -quite literally- be the wedding venue of your dreams! 

I’ll tell you a little bit about the resort, and then we’ll look at why it’s a great option for your wedding week. Finally, I’ll show you a little snapshot from Heidi and Garth’s wedding day so you can decide if this is the resort for you.

Let’s get started right away with a quick sneak-peek of the beautiful couple.

Adorable, right? Now, let me tell you a thing or two about the resort they chose for their special day.


Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana

Dreams Palm Beach is a beautiful resort located in Cabeza de Toro, which is a quieter part of Punta Cana, about 20 minutes from the airport. There are a few other resorts in the area, but it never gets too overcrowded with people.

If you’re looking for a small, intimate resort that’s great for the whole family, then Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana is the place for you. The small layout is perfect for young children and older parents/grandparents. You don’t have to worry about getting lost or waiting for a trolly to take you around. Everything is within walking distance.

The water is calm most of the year so you won’t need to stress about strong waves – especially for the little ones. (If you’d prefer some bigger waves to play in, then Dreams Punta Cana or Dreams Macao Beach will be better for you.) The beach is lined with palm trees so you’ll have plenty of shady areas – not to mention all that soft white sand you’ve seen in the photos of Punta Cana. Expect to spend most of your vacation relaxing on this beach. You won’t want to leave! 

The rooms are a little outdated, but they’re nice and always kept clean. Honestly, you shouldn’t be spending too much time in your room anyway, so don’t let this deter you from staying here. The food is decent – about what you’d expect at an all-inclusive resort. Check out the Seaside Grill if you want a beautiful view while you eat. It’s also a beautiful option for your wedding ceremony location!

For now, I’ll just give you a quick overview of their weddings so you can see if you connect with what they offer.


Weddings at Dreams Palm Beach

It’s not a coincidence that Dreams Palm Beach Resort hosts dozens of beautiful weddings each year. The resort is excellent, and their coordinators are extremely helpful when it comes to planning a wedding from a distance. They’ll help you through every step of the way!

While you may not get instant responses from your planner (this is common for all resorts in Punta Cana), you can trust that they will do an amazing job when your wedding day finally arrives. They have tons of experience working with brides and making their dreams come true (no pun intended). Just check out this Indian Wedding. Talk about stunning! 

I’m sure you can tell by now that I absolutely love Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana for weddings!

The lighting is amazing for photographs. The sunshine leaking through the buildings creates the perfect warm light that our couples love so much. The light changes quickly, but we’ve worked there many times before so we know what to expect. We know all the good spots for photos. You can relax knowing that your wedding photos will turn out amazing! 

Don’t just take my word for it. Check out a few more of Heidi and Garth’s wedding photos down below before I jump in to tell you all about this lively couple.


Heidi & Garth’s Dream Wedding

These two are the best! Heidi is from California and Garth is from Australia. They met at a country concert and haven’t gone a day without each other since! Isn’t that the cutest thing you’ve ever heard? 

They’re such a fun couple! We knew it from the first moment Heidi reached out to us looking for a photographer. She just had that energy. Light-hearted. Relaxed. And really allowing us to do what we do best – capturing feelings, emotions, and random great moments.

I believe her exact words were “Just have fun! Be creative!” We know from experience that any bride who leads with that is going to be a joy to work with. And Heidi was! 

Heidi and Garth were always laughing. You can tell they truly enjoy each other’s company. Wait, let me correct myself. They weren’t laughing much during the ceremony… When Garth saw his bride walking down the aisle, he just couldn’t hold back the tears any longer. It is an emotional moment, after all! 

The rest of the night was spent laughing though, cracking jokes, and busting out some awesome, classic dance moves. (Oh yes, Heidi even did “the worm” – wedding dress and all!) We had a blast photographing both of them on their wedding day (and their family and friends, too).
