Soft, white sand. Rustling palm trees. Light ocean waves. These are only a few things that you may be imagining as you plan your wedding in Punta Cana. Luckily, Jellyfish in Punta Cana has all of these and so much more!
Jellyfish Restaurant is easily one of my favorite private wedding venues in Punta Cana! I love it so much, I got married there in 2021. (And yes, it was an absolute dream come true!!) But I’m not here to talk about my wedding… although I would love to.
Today is all about Jenesis and Jonathan. They had a beautiful wedding, and it deserves to be shared. Plus, it may just help you with your own wedding planning.
So let me tell you a little bit about Jellyfish in Punta Cana, and then I’ll show you some photos from Jenesis and Jonathan’s big day.
Jellyfish Restaurant in Punta Cana
Nestled on a little area of beach in between Lopesan Costa Bavaro and Melia Caribe resorts, you’ll find this beautiful beachfront restaurant. It is simply stunning! It has a rustic beachy feel, but with a hint of elegance, too.
The venue looks amazing all on its own, but add in some wedding decor and you’ll take it to a whole other level. Seriously. Their wedding planners are sooo talented! You don’t need a lot of decor to make this place feel special. Feel free to keep it simple with some delicate roses, soft greenery, and classic centerpieces.
If you want to go bigger, you can definitely do that too! Splurge for the cascading table runners and hanging centerpieces. Decorate the venue from floor to ceiling if you’d like. Either way, it’s going to look amazing!
But let’s remember:
It’s not all about the look. It’s also about the experience. And you’re sure to have an amazing experience at Jellyfish in Punta Cana. From the moment you step into the bridal suite on the morning of your wedding day, to the steps you take down the aisle, to the very last song of the night, you’re going to feel the love and warmth that this venue has to offer.
You will feel the support from their wedding planners and the entire staff on site. You’re going to appreciate the organization throughout the day. And you’re going to have a blast celebrating your marriage and dancing the night away with your family and friends.
It doesn’t get any better than this!
Planning Your Destination Wedding
It’s not easy to plan your wedding from a distance. You can’t see the venue in person, so it can be hard to imagine what your day will look like. And you really have to put your trust in your wedding vendors.
Thankfully, with the team at Jellyfish, you’ll be in great hands.
While it does take some planning and preparation, Jellyfish will take care of most of the organization for you. No need to stress about contacting dozens of vendors for each little thing. You’re already set up with a beautiful venue, food and drinks, wedding cake and desserts, decor, flowers, a live band or DJ, and an MC. Need transportation from your resort? They’ve got you covered. They even offer extras if you want something unique for your wedding like a crazy hour, fire show, or a cigar rolling expert.
The only vendors you’ll need to contact separately are your hair and makeup artist, the photographer and videographer (that’s us), and your wedding officiant (although they can help you with that too.)
That sounds simple enough, right?
Now, don’t get me wrong. You will still have a lot of details to work out on your own. Finding your wedding dress. Choosing bridesmaids’ dresses and groomsmen’s attire. Sending out invitations. Booking your flights and hotel. Even choosing the music you want to play throughout your day. There are a lot of little things that go into a destination wedding. But try not to stress. Just take it one step at a time. You got this!

Jenesis & Jonathan’s Wedding at Jellyfish in Punta Cana
Let’s dive right into Jenesis and Jonathan’s beautiful wedding at Jellyfish in Punta Cana. They had a gorgeous beach wedding ceremony, followed by a delicious dinner at the restaurant, and a lively reception on the dance floor. They finished the night under the stars, taking shots with their family and friends. Isn’t that what weddings are all about?
Okay, maybe they’re more about love and commitment… but that was a big part of the day, too.
Jenesis and Jonathan took this big step into marriage, promising to love and support each other through sickness and in health. They incorporated the traditional coin exchange ceremony (las arras matrimoniales in Spanish) into their ceremony, representing their unity and commitment to one another.
As a part of this tradition, the bride and groom exchange 13 coins as a symbol for each month of the year, welcoming in love and prosperity. But wait… There are only 12 months in the year? So the 13th coin represents overabundance and reminds the couple to support others outside of their marriage, helping those in need, whether they are inside or outside of their family circle.
Here are some more photos from their special day:
It was a beautiful day!
