Held at the gorgeous Now Larimar Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and captured by Katya Nova Photography, the 75-guest wedding was picture perfect. Planned with help from the Certified Destination Wedding Experts at DestinationWeddings.com, we love all the fun details that went into this wedding. From the gorgeous beach ceremony setup to the programs and personalized vow books (not to mention the amazing beach-ball group photo op), everything about this wedding makes us smile.

How Did You Choose Your Destination Wedding Location?
Both of our families are from the Dominican Republic so it was a no brainer for us! We visited Punta Cana right after we got engaged and put down a deposit right away. We couldn’t wait to get married in paradise and be able to incorporate many elements of our Dominican culture.
Favorite Moment From the Wedding?
Our first dance as husband and wife. We did a three song medley of “Never Felt This Way” by Alicia Keys, “Mi Corazoncito” by Aventura and “Poision” by Bell Biv DeVoe. No one knew that we had choreographed moves and that we were mixing different songs. It was the perfect mix of emotion, Dominican culture, and fun! The first dance ended with cold fire sparklers illuminating the dance floor and our guests were wowed!
