Today we’re featuring Erica and Aldo’s wedding at Ocean Blue and Sand. The Destify Couple originally met on a blind date at a Puerto Rican restaurant on the north side of Chicago. After dating for a while, Aldo proposed to Erica on her birthday during a dazzling week-long Jamaica cruise. After an afternoon of scintillating snorkeling tours, he dropped to one knee and popped the question while overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
The couple chose Ocean Blue and Sand in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Searching for an all-inclusive, budget-friendly location, the couple narrowed their research on a collection of economical wedding resorts in the Dominican Republic. Eventually, with the help of their Destify agent Jessica, they fell in love with the beachside sanctuary of Ocean Blue and Sand in Punta Cana.
One of the less impacted family-friendly resorts in Punta Cana, Ocean Blue and Sand is situated on a private stretch of the ivory sand Bavaro Beach, introducing newlyweds and their guests to a collection of jaw-dropping venues. Featuring Caribbean beach town-inspired architecture and a plethora of restaurants and bars, the property is idyllic for large wedding groups of all ages.
Showcasing a glorious selection of effervescent venues, Ocean Blue and Sand fulfilled a lively ceremony in the resort’s Beach space just steps from the white crest-filled Caribbean. Utilizing the Paradise Package, Erica and Aldo hosted a 4-hour reception in the Tortuga Ballroom, rounding out a wholesome wedding day.
Pondering on the months of planning leading up to their ceremony, the couple agreed that their Destify agent Jessica was integral in securing affordable group rates and narrowing their search from the bevy of stunning wedding resorts. Erica said, “It was very helpful because we had a large party that was traveling with us. The wedding website was laid out very nice and also informational for everyone.”
