Are you dreaming of a beautiful beach wedding in the Dominican Republic? What exactly did you have in mind? Soft white sand. Blue water. Sunshine and palm trees. Does that sound about right? Well, look no further. Kukua Punta Cana has everything you’re dreaming of. It could just be your perfect wedding venue. 

I’ll start by telling you a little bit about Kukua Punta Cana. Next, I introduce their amazing team of wedding planners, and finally, I’ll show you Emily and Yovanny’s gorgeous beach wedding. Ready?

Let’s get started with a quick sneak peek from their wedding day. Because let’s be honest, that’s why you’re really here anyway. Isn’t it?


Kukua Punta Cana

If you’re trying to decide between having your wedding at a resort or at a venue, Kukua Punta Cana will make your decision a whole lot easier. This place is simply spectacular!

First of all, this restaurant and beach club is located right on the soft, white sand that Punta Cana is famous for. The water is that gorgeous shade of turquoise blue that you’ve been dreaming of! And the swaying palm trees create the perfect outline for your wedding ceremony.

If you’re planning to get married right on the beach, you’ll have a hard time finding a more perfect location than this one!

Are you worried about the sun or the wind being too strong on your wedding day? Kukua Punta Cana also offers a covered space overlooking the water as a ceremony location. It’s called La Palapa and you can check it out in Tinesha and Everett’s wedding post here.

Otherwise, let’s keep going:

Not only does Kukua Punta Cana have a beautiful location, but the restaurant itself is just as impressive. It has a beachy, rustic feel that truly comes to life on wedding days. You can choose to embrace the beach vibes with bright, colorful flowers. Or if you want a more elegant reception, long flowing centerpieces and hanging bistro lights will do the trick. 

Whatever style you choose, the Kukua team will make it happen. Actually, they are such a huge part of why Kukua is such an amazing wedding venue so let’s get a little more specific.

Emily & Yovanny’s Wedding at Kukua Punta Cana

These two are adorable! Emily is from the United States and Yovanny is from the Dominican Republic. It’s no wonder that they decided to get married in Punta Cana! They could be close to Yovanny’s family and celebrate their love with their dearest family and friends. What could be better than that? 

They decided not to have a first look to make that moment of walking down the aisle even more special, but Emily did have a first look with her dad. And oh my! It was such a beautiful moment. Tears were flowing and emotions were high. But that’s to be expected on any wedding day. 

Emily looked absolutely stunning as she walked down the aisle to her new husband! Yovanny’s eyes lit up and a huge smile came to his face. Check out their photos below to see more special moments like this one.
