First and foremost, congratulations on your engagement! You have picked an amazing property. Majestic Elegance is beautiful.
If you are opting to have a symbolic ceremony in destination, make sure to advise your wedding planner that you want it to look as legal as possible. The ceremonies are virtually the same, so you do not need to worry about friends and family questioning the authenticity. Please note that you will be required to bring proof of marriage to the hotel coordinator in order to have a symbolic ceremony at the Majestic.
Have you considered having Pastor Rick York perform the ceremony? He is a retired Pastor from the US who performs symbolic ceremonies in Punta Cana. His ceremonies are beautiful and he is very flexible with adding any elements you would like to incorporate. His services are an additional cost, paid in cash on the day of the wedding, but, he is well worth it!!
