Church Wedding at Grand Palladium kantenah – Ashley and Miguel

Canadians and Mexicans get along like good neighbors, despite being separated by the USA. If you ask a Canadian about Mexico, they’re sure to say the love it! You don’t have to travel up north to ask, there’s always a huge bunch of Canucks in the Riviera Maya. Mexicans say the same about Canada, with many visiting Canada to live, vacation and study. On top of all the love for each other’s countries, we see lots of romance between Canadians and Mexicans too!

When a Canadian and a Mexican fall in love, a destination wedding in the Riviera Maya is an easy choice. That´s exactly what Ashley and Miguel did. Here is what Miguel had to say about coming back to Mexico for his Riviera Maya wedding:

It was so exciting! Ashley and I were very happy with everything. We both love the Mexican culture and it was a pleasure to share it with our Canadian guests. Many of them had never seen a live Mariachi group or had never eaten tacos al pastor. To see our families and friends enjoying all that, was incredible”.

¡Mucha Emoción! Ashley y yo estuvimos muy contentos con todo. A los dos nos encanta la cultura de Mexico y nos dio gusto poder compatirla con nuestros invitados Canadienses. Muchos de ellos nunca habian visto a un grupo de Mariachi en vivo por ejemplo, o nunca habian comido un taco al pastor. Asi que poder ver a nuestras familias y amigos disfrutar de todo eso fue increible.

When asked about how it was to find a soulmate from a different country and culture, Miguel told us:

I think the saying “opposites attract” applies to us… I think the trick is to have much respect for others and understand that every person is different. Appreciate the positive and don’t focus on the negative. We both like to enjoy with family and friends and are always supporting each other.

Pues creo que el dicho de “Los polos opuestos se atraen” aplica para nosotros, ya que aparte de venir de culturas distintas, tambien tenemos personalidades distintas… creo que el truco es tener mucho respeto hacia el otro y entender que cada persona es distinta. Apreciar lo positivo y no enfocarse nunca en lo negativo. Obviamente hay muchas cosas en que los dos somos iguales, por ejemplo nos gusta convivir con familia y amigos y no somos conformistas asi que siempre nos estamos motivando el uno al otro.

Thanks for bringing the fiesta Ashley and Miguel, and extra kudos for the taco stand!
