Perfect wedding day
La Barcaza made the biggest day of my life, the best day of my life. It was the best decision I have ever made. With all of the negative stories about the Dominican right now, I was a little on edge to proceed with the wedding there.... but I am so glad I didn’t change my plans.Sent on 07/30/2019
The wedding coordinator and planning:
Planning was fun. The wedding coordinator gives you a catalog-type download via email to review all of the options. There’s a beautiful selection for any style you’re going for. All you have to do is choose your decor and the wedding coordinator takes it from there and sends you back a quote. I never felt bad about asking questions, as they were so helpful and made sure this day was about us and everything we wanted. The wedding coordinator....... where do I begin? So Brigi is the wedding coordinator and she is brilliant at what she does. She is so kind and listens to everything you want/need. I’ve talked with her for over a year now for planning, and she is so responsive and helpful. When I met with Brigi after arriving to Punta Cana, she recited everything I selected to me perfect. So clearly she knows what she’s doing and really develops that relationship with the bride and groom for the wedding. She helped put my groomsmen and father of the brides boutonnières on and had everything that I brought personally too (cake topper, name cards, fans, etc.) together beautifully. Little things she did like let me borrow her book so I can make sure speech papers didn’t fly away as they were being spoken... she literally tended to my every want/need.
The boat staff and bartenders:
Boy, do they know how to throw a party. I seriously had the time of my life with them and so did my entire wedding party/guests. They partied with us! The bartenders had a speciality drink and plenty of mamajuana. The DJ and one of the boat members noticed the party was dying down a little bit.... so they both planned this awesome, hysterical game for the couples to play. It made everyone laugh until we cried and got the party going again. My guests still won’t stop talking about how they aren’t sure they will be able to find another wedding to top this one.
Okay, the food is good. Its definitely enough to get you by for the night!! Everyone was satisfied and there were no complaints!
We had Deejay Makuto. He was also the bomb!! He loved my playlist that I brought and also incorporated his songs that went so well with my playlist. When I wanted to download songs too, he was quick to hop on that and got them to download in time for it to come up next. He was amazing, if you can... get him!! He would pull me aside and make sure what he was doing is what I wanted. He didn’t want certain things to be long and dragged out..... so he would make sure it is what i wanted which was SO helpful. I loved him and actually wish I could use him back here in the states for a DJ!
THE BEST. If I could give any advice it’s to not pay too much attention to all of the negativity in the Dominican right now. Still go. Be cautious of your surroundings and what you consume. I wouldn’t have changed my trip, my wedding, my days there for anything! 💕💕
Thank you La Barcaza and Brigi for giving me the wedding of my dreams!

Csak ajánlani tudom a La Barcazát!
Fantasztikus hajó, kitünő személyzettel, kíváló ételekkel, italokkal, illedelmes kiszolgálással, és nem utolsó sorban egy csodálatos környezetben a karib tengeren!
Köszönjük La Barcaza a hibátlan, profi esküvői szervezést amit nekünk nyújtottatok! Életünk legszebb napja volt! 😍Sent on 04/08/2019
The food was great as well as the secluded location on the beach for the ceremony. Being professional photographers we worked at La Barcaza many times and can recommend them without a doubt. Daniel and his team make sure you enjoy every minute of your wedding day while enjoying the amazing views from the boat.
