This review is long overdue! Our wedding was October 29, 2016 at Huracan Café. We started planning in February of 2016 so less than a year out. Our only communication was with Nati and from our first email to our final goodbye Nati was professional, honest, and really listened to our vision for our wedding. It did take sometimes a week for responses but that is expected with destination weddings and didn’t really stress me at all.
I had 2 Skype meetings with Nati throughout the process and on the last one I have to admit I was feeling uneasy about whether she really understood my vision (even though I had filled out all forms with tons of inspiration of what I wanted my dream wedding to be).
Once in Punta Cana we did our menu tasting 3 days before the wedding. The food was to die for, especially the gnocchi and lobster. My hubby is a chef and he really enjoyed all the food as well! During the tasting we also were able to try drinks and chose the passion fruit caipirinha and mojito. My personal favorite was the passion fruit caipirinha, I could have sipped that for days! Nati was there with us during the tasting we went over everything, any question we had she was there to answer, give advice, and help connect last details. She was professional, the sweetest person ever, and really made me feel totally confident that she understood my vision!
Our wedding day was a real life dream come true. I’m not even sure how to write this review because I am eternally grateful for Nati and the huracan café team putting together the perfect day for us. It is like Nati got in my head and pulled together the absolute boho/ flowery wedding of my dreams. Every single detail was so thought out and so perfect from the flowers, to the pink glasses, to the sweetheart table. I was in awe when I saw the venue finished moments before the wedding!
Nati is a wedding planner who really pours her heart into what she does, she is detailed, she is such a genuine spirit, she is honest, she is professional, she is fun, she knows how to get shit done, she is a visionary, she deeply cares about her couples, she doesn’t let you worry about a thing, and honestly the best person we could have had to give us the wedding of our dreams! Thomaso, the manager at Huracan was available for anything we needed, and was professional.
Valentina did all of our graphics and she nailed it as well from the menus to the place cards, to our adventures are forever sign. Valentina was also there the whole day to help Nati set up and she is the sweetest ever!
Huracan Cafe in house DJ kept the party going all night. There were no awkward moments; there was someone on the dance floor at all times. He didn’t miss a beat from our ceremony to reception. MC Alejandro did a great job with announcements, and organizing things to make sure transitions ran smoothly.
I also want to recognize Clementine she was our server from the tasting, to the day of when all us girls were getting ready, and the whole night was there for the wedding. Clemen seriously stole my heart, she was so kind, made me feel special, nothing was too much to ask for her, anything I needed she was there!
Huracan Café team exceeded our expectations in every way. We feel so blessed to have found this venue and be able to be apart of the huracan family. We love every single part of this team. We would absolutely recommend them for anyone thinking of doing a destination wedding.
