Here at Jet Set we love nothing more than a celebrity wedding at a stunning destination retreat. And now we've nailed down the latest beautiful tropical hotspot where stars are getting their I Do's on.
Super Bowl-winning Denver Broncos placekicker Brandon McManus and longtime girlfriend Nadia Spencer recently tied the knot at Sanctuary Cap Cana by AlSol, an exclusive luxury resort in Cap Cana, Dominican Republic. The retreat is one of four connected luxe all-inclusive resorts by AlSol hotels and resorts: Luxury Village, Del Mar, Tiara Cap Cana, and Sanctuary Cap Cana.
Kanye West was also spotted in the fresh and modern luxury island resort’s sleek nightclub in Luxury Village, Versus Marina Cap Cana, while staying at a private apartment with his father, and reportedly told staff, "This is luxury. I can bring my family here," according to AlSol social media coordinator Amanda Guevera.
He ate at private on site La Arroceria Valenciana, known for its exquisite Spanish seafood paella and tapas, where he requested plain rice and beans off menu. Beyoncé played it low key according to staff, and ordered in on her visit to Sanctuary Cap Cana but mom, Tina Knowles stayed onboard in the Monarch Villa. Both were in town for the annual golf classic held every December.
Other celeb visitors include Academy Award-winning Lupita Nyong'o, Orange is the New Black stars Danielle Brooks and Uzo Adudo, and How to Get Away with Murder’s Aja Naomi King.
But most popular of all is Punta Cana’s more private neighbor Cap Cana’s Sanctuary as a destination wedding hotspot for celebs. One of the draws is the 30,000 acres of white sand beaches, oceanfront valley roads, and turquoise waters. Another is the AlSol Tiara’s German world-class Babor spa services and the in-house spa at Sanctuary Cap Cana.
In total, the collection of four luxury properties has 710 suites, 12 swimming pools, two spas, and views of the Atlantic Ocean, Cap Cana Marina, or garden.
Jack Nicklaus’ designed the golf club, Punta Espada, which is rated as one of the finest courses in the Caribbean and Mexico by Golfweek magazine.
McManus and Spencer exchanged vows surrounded by family and friends on the resort’s private castle island. The formal reception — turned party under a star-filled sky — took place on the grand colonial balcony overlooking the property and the waterfront and was highlighted by romantic floral décor and a multicolored dance floor. They stayed in a beachfront villa with butler service, but honeymoon suites on the top floor of the castle include private plunge pools for champagne under moonlight.
