I haven't been to a wedding at this resort, but I was there for a vacation January 16-23rd this year. It was a really nice place, beautiful polls, great food, great rooms. I checked out the gazebo in the garden for the weddings, and it was really nice. Though it isn't near the beach-(we were looking for a wedding gazebo location that backs onto the water. ) The only downfall I found was the time-share people are quite aggressive at this resort. I found that quite annoying, but as long as you say NO, and don't let them make you feel bad, you will be just fine.
We also checked out the Punta Cana Princess which is right down the beach from the Ocean Sand. It is a great resort, though I preferred the Ocean Sand. There are 2 parts to the ocean resort-ocean sand and ocean blue. No real big difference between the two, so don't worry.

The wedding coordinator's name is Ada (she's fairly new) and she is great. She is really quick to reply to e-mails and is great in answering any (and all!) of my questions. Her e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, we will be getting married the night before we leave, in the Catholic Church. I contacted a Pastor (whose information I got on this forum) and his name is Rick York, and he speaks English which I heard is rare for DR (otherwise Ada would be doing the translating during the ceremony) and Rick York offers a very reasonable price so we booked him. The great thing is that he performs it like a real ceremony, so our guests wouldn't even have to know that we were already married... he does the ring exchange, vow exchange, everything. I didn't want my guests to feel like they "missed the real ceremony" so he is pretty much going to duplciate it, which I am really happy out. I can give you his contact info if you are interested.

The Wedding Coordinator is great, she is really quick to respond and very helpful so far. We are getting married in the Garden Gazebo. I kind of like taht it's a little bit away from the beach, it seems more private. I might be able to help if you have any specific questions.
