Ashley & Josh’s Wedding Bliss at Jellyfish Restaurant, Punta Cana

Meet Ashley and Josh, a beautiful couple who exchanged vows last December on the pristine shores of Bavaro Beach at Jellyfish Restaurant Punta Cana. Their journey to this picturesque destination was not without its twists and turns. Originally planning to tie the knot in 2021, Ashley and Josh, not unlike many couples impacted by the pandemic, deferred their wedding plans not once but twice. However, their reason for the delay was nothing short of heartwarming – through the many reasons (and years!) for travel delays and postponements, the couple welcomed not one, but two daughters into their family. As the wedding day approached, the anticipation was high and the joy multiplied with the heart-warming inclusions of their adorable built-in flower girls.
