Ieva and Arturo’s wedding at Jellyfish Restaurant was one for books! And as they approach their one year wedding anniversary, I’d like to take a few moments to reminisce on the beauty that was their wedding day. But first, let me just say: Happy Anniversary, Ieva & Arturo! 


Jellyfish Restaurant in Punta Cana

As you surely know by now, Jellyfish Restaurant is one of my favorite wedding venues in Punta Cana! The restaurant sits right on Bavaro Beach in between the Lopesan Costa Bavaro and Melia Caribe resorts. While the views of the turquoise water, white sand, and towering palm trees are a gorgeous sight in of itself, the best part about having a wedding at Jellyfish is that the restaurant sits up higher on the beach, away from the foot traffic of tourists walking by. This means that you’ll have fewer people staring in at your wedding ceremony and in the background of your wedding photos. And that makes it so much more intimate!

The Food at Jellyfish

I can’t talk about Jellyfish without mentioning the food. From the mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres to the delicious main courses, and everything in between. Your taste buds will be ecstatic with every single bite! For weddings, they offer 5 different menu options as well as a list of vegetarian choices. You have to try the chicken and mushroom pasta! It is to die for!! Or you can choose to really wow your guests with a seafood grill which includes lobster, shrimp, octopus, and so much more! Whatever you decide for your wedding menu, you won’t be disappointed!! Everything is exquisite.


Ieva & Arturo’s Wedding at Jellyfish

Ieva and Arturo got married at the beautiful Jellyfish Restaraunt on June 9th, 2019. They planned a destination wedding in Punta Cana without ever having been to the Dominican Republic before. Thanks to their amazing vendors and the team at Jellyfish, their wedding day was an absolute success!!

A close friend performed the ceremony, and they wrote their own silly and heartfelt vows. Arturo had everyone laughing along as he promised to always remind Ieva to “appreciate the good things – Especially [her] unbelievably sexy, tall, dark, and handsome husband.”

And then Ieva spread some wisdom about their healthy, mature relationship saying back to him: “You’re not my other half. You are a beautiful, courageous, intelligent, hilarious, big-hearted, and complete human, who holds space for me, and my complete self.”

How amazingly beautiful is that??

After an emotional first look and a beautiful wedding ceremony, the rest of the day was spent laughing together and enjoying the party. With a fire show and the crazy hour to start them off, the party was set to go all night long. And these two (and their guests) sure know how to party!
