An unique destination wedding at Finest Punta Cana / Makayla & Cory

We have to admit, when Makayla & Cory chose us as their wedding team for their celebration in Punta Cana, we were over the moon. Not only were they incredibly easy to work with from the very first email, but also, the opportunity to shoot at Finest Punta Canapromises to be an exquisite experience for us.

A destination wedding at this resort sounds absolutely magical! With its stunning beachfront location and luxurious amenities, it’s the perfect setting for a romantic and unforgettable celebration.

It is located in Ubero Alto, about 40’ from the International Airport Punta Cana. Finest Punta Cana  offers the best of both worlds with its two sides to the resort. If you’re planning an adults-only celebration, the Excellence Club is the place to be. And if you’re bringing the whole family along, the Finest Club is where the fun is. Whichever club you choose, you’ll enjoy exclusive access to bars, restaurants, pools, and your own slice of paradise on the beach. It’s the perfect setting for creating unforgettable memories, whether you’re seeking a romantic getaway or a family-friendly adventure.

This resort is an excellent choice for couples seeking a small and intimate wedding experience, as Makayla & Cory had.

Their pre-made packages offer fantastic value, starting as low as $850 for up to 10 people, including the bride and groom. Prices go up to $2,400 for up to 20 guests. Each package includes some essentials, with options to customize further to suit your vision perfectly. This time, the couple opted to personalize their celebration by hiring outside vendors, even though it meant paying a vendor fee.

Our recommendation: If you’re considering whether to host your celebration at the resort or at an off-resort wedding venue, take the time to compare quotes. Lately, resort fees have been on the rise, prompting many couples to opt for wedding venues to save money. It’s worth exploring all your options to make the best decision for your budget and preferences.

For your wedding ceremony, you’ll have a range of beautiful options to choose from, including the beach, the stone gazebo, or the rooftop terrace. As for the reception, you can select from the beach, plaza, or a ballroom. Each location offers its own unique charm, ensuring a stunning backdrop for your special day. Additionally, the resort boasts an adorable bridal suite, providing the perfect space for you to get ready and prepare for the festivities ahead. With such fantastic options available, you truly can’t go wrong!

Our couple opted for a ceremony at the gazebo, and it was simply enchanting. Despite November being in the midst of the rainy season in the Dominican Republic, the day was pretty cloudy. However, the couple maintained their smiles and positive attitude throughout. And when it came time for their newlywed photo shoot, the lighting miraculously cast a spectacular glow over the scene, adding to the magic of the moment.

Despite the forecasted conditions, the reception was held outside in the plaza. The florist truly outdid themselves, creating a breathtaking setup with stunning flowers that added a touch of elegance to the entire affair. As the night unfolded, guests danced, laughed, and revealed in the joyous celebration, creating unforgettable memories under the starlit sky.

To cap off the night, the couple added a personal touch with LED foam sticks, adding an extra element of fun and creating unforgettable memories for everyone involved.

Cheers to a beautiful wedding in paradise!
