Brian and Lauren – Breathless Resort and Spa, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

 

Planning a destination wedding can be challenging but rewarding in the end.  Brian and Laura planned a Punta Cana destination wedding.

Brian and Laura love to travel, it was a natural choice for them to decide to do a destination wedding, but didn’t even know where to begin. After going to resorts in Turks & Caicos, the Bahamas, Cancun, Playa Mujeres, AND Riveria maya, they finally decided on Punta Cana.  Their travel agent had advised them that Breathless was going to be the newest and hottest resort, and would be open just in time for our wedding date.

So the couple, along with 30 guests traveled to Punta Cana for their May 22 wedding, to Breathless Resort & Spa – Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

For their wedding, Breathless Resort had all the vendor work squared away, all they had to do was tell them what they wanted. The hotel did all the work for them which made it easy to plan.  They arranged for all the vendors for the wedding day.

On the day of the wedding, their ceremony wasn’t until 4:30pm, so it started with a mimosa breakfast (of course) and then a few hours relaxing by the pool with their guests. Preparations and getting ready started at noon, with hair by the bride’s sister since she is a hair stylist in Baltimore, and makeup provided by the resort spa. Meanwhile, the soon-to-be-husband, was at the resort pool at their “Foam Party” just moments before walking down the aisle!

Asked what details were added to your day to make it special the bride responded, “Being surrounded by so many friends and family in a gorgeous location meant the world to my husband and I. Our ceremony was on the beach, which made it absolutely amazing and perfect.”

Destination Weddins DIY asked the couple if there was anything that they’d do differently now that its done?  ”Absolutely not. Before the wedding I was so nervous and anxious about how everything would go, and did not want ANYTHING to go wrong. But in the moment, and even after- I simply didn’t care. I was getting married to the man of my dreams, and had everyone I loved there to witness it.”

Since the couple did a destination wedding, and were having a “at home reception” for those guests who couldn’t make it, a honeymoon was not a top priority. But they do have future plans for lots of traveling which include St. Lucia, Paris, and Italy.

All in all, a beautiful day and a great experience was had at Breathless Resort & Spa. The bride does recommend the location for your destination wedding too.
Breathless Resort & Spa is a brand new all-adult destination hotel whose style could be described as “Modern with a splash of Tropical”.  Clean, modern design with splashes of warm colors makes for an inviting atmosphere. “While at Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa, mix and mingle with people from around the world or reconnect with those that mean the world to you. Featuring 750 ultra-contemporary suites with private terraces, Breathless Punta Cana is the epitome of luxury and excitement.”
