Dream Wedding!!!
Reviewed on Aug 26, 2020
Where to begin… Well I am just slightly late in writing this review - lol. My husband and I got married at Kukua on January 28, 2020. However, our original wedding date was suppose to be November 25, 2019. Due to the tragic and unexpected loss of one of our closest friends, who was in our wedding party, we decided to reschedule. I will never forget the day that I called Rachel to ask her what our options were for rescheduling. I was fighting back tears, trying desperately to hold it together. From the moment she picked up the phone I knew that I no longer needed to worry. That I could focus on mourning the loss of my friend and she would take care of the rest. Rachel reached out to all our other vendors to let them know what was going on. When we finally decided on a new date, she reached out to them all again to make sure the new date worked for everyone. I felt like such a weight was lifted off me. It was devasting having to reschedule our wedding. There were days when I felt like not only had I lost one of my best friends but that I had also lost my wedding. Rachel was there, no matter what. She reminded me time and time again that our special day would come, and that when it did it would still be perfect. When it came time to submit my final wedding outline I felt so withdrawn and defeated. I felt like there was no way our day could be special without him there. She completed my outline for me while we talked on the phone about what I wanted. There were so many moments leading up to our wedding where I felt like know one understood me but Rachel. Kukua is beyond breathtaking. From the moment I saw a video on Facebook I knew that was where I wanted to get married. It’s perfect! Everything from the décor, the food, to the bridal suite is AMAZING. Mayte is a goddess! When we met her at our tasting, I knew I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Rachel had already sent her everything. On the day of our wedding she took care of every single detail, everything was perfect because of her. I had only arranged for one shuttle home at the end of the night. When my Mom started to not feel good in the evening Mayte instantly arranged for another shuttle to take my Mom back to the hotel. When we discovered it was our photographer’s birthday, Mayte arranged a piece of cake so we could all sing happy birthday. Mayte is your Fairy God Mother and you are Cinderella. There is nothing she can’t do. Rachel and Mayte are the dream team!!! It has been seven months since our wedding and our guests are still talking about it. Every person who attended said it was the best wedding they have ever been too. The food was spectacular, we customized our appetizers and created our own special cocktail. I can’t think of anything that wasn’t perfect that day. I honestly feel like I have life long relationships with these two incredible women now. Pick Kukua, you won’t be disappointed!

Review I don’t even know where to begin with this review, there is many perfect things to talk about, how do I decided which to start first ... we’ll let me start by saying if your reading this, just know you found the place. If you’re looking for a wedding , wedding planners, food, entertainment, staff, decorations that’s are perfect then Kukua is the place for you! When I was trying to find a venue, I was searching and searching and I came across this one and after the first couple reviews I was sold. Since the day I sent them an email I was treated with nothing but love! We are from Florida so this was a destination wedding for us, sounds scary right? Getting married in another country and planning an entire wedding! Well let me just say, my wedding was the most stress free wedding I could EVER imagine! I couldn’t believe how helpful Rachel & Mayte, I still to this day look back and think how simple and wonderful they made everything! Let me start off by talking about Rachel, she is the one you will be communicating through phone and emails, to plan your big day. She is the most SWEETEST human bean you will ever come across, she made planning a wedding a blast! She was helpful, she was caring, she was knowledgeable, she was everything you could ask for, and the best part is she was ALWAYS there for me whenever I needed her, even if it a quick text or phone call she never made me feel like I was a bother, she was always so happy every time my family and I talked to her. Then after all the wedding planning, the big day finally comes then you meet mayte, and let me tell you something that girl can make your Pinterest wedding come to dreams!!! You want that wedding goal feels, then let Mayte make your dream wedding! My family’s Italian and they’re really big on food, decorations , and to be quite honest just extra as heck and I’ll never forget what my nana said to me... (keep in mind she was the one that you wanted to please, and I didn’t show her any pictures of this place because I wanted her to be so excited and surprised because I had that much confidence in Kukua that I knew she would love it) it’s the day of the wedding mayte and her team are putting together my dream wedding, my nana tells me “don’t worry I brought extra cash incase I need to change anything” like I said she’s the one you gotta impress, and I just slightly smiled and thought in my head if you only knew what your about to know... she walked in and was STUNNED! She came back to me and said “I couldn’t find one thing wrong, and I searched hard but everything is absolutely perfect. The flowers are more then I could imagine, it’s so beautiful I had tears” and that moment right there just was the icing on the cake and I knew this is why I had my wedding here. I do not have one con to even write, everything was nothing but BIG PROS. I got treated so good, I got my dream wedding, I got everything I was looking for, and so did my guest. They were mind blown by everything! So if you’re debating between this and somewhere else, I hope you go here and take my word you won’t regret it ❤️ Thank you Rachel, Mayte, and the entire staff from the bottom of me and my husband heart, truly thank you will never be enough for how amazing you made our wedding, to the fact I can’t even put it in words, I just think back ever day, and remind myself how perfect it was and I’ll forever have a piece of Kukua in my heart !
