Riviera Maya Beach Wedding – Hacienda del Secreto – Krista and Matt

You can see Krista and Matt’s wedding highlights video here

“Matt and I always joke that high fives are “legally binding” so if we high five on something, it’s for real.  We thought it appropriate to seal our marriage with a legally binding high-five.”

A first high five before their first kiss – Krista and Matt are our kind of couple for sure! This was a wedding with a really cozy, intimate vibe. The pristine, private beach of Playa de Secreto – literally ‘Secret Beach’,  is an incredible location. We loved personal touches like  friends officiating the wedding ceremony, and of course that “legally binding” high five!

“We agreed having our friends officiating our wedding ceremony from the start.  We wanted someone marrying us who knew us both well and who had seen us as individuals and as a couple to make it more meaningful and personal.   They also made it so much fun!  There were parts of the ceremony that we didn’t know about it in advance that were really great.”

“I loved getting to dance with my father under the stars, a special dance we had rehearsed since he is an a wheelchair – that was really meaningful to both of us.

“Duncan, the best man, and Amy one of the bridesmaids had to leave their new-born children at home in the US in order to make it, so just their presence was so meaningful.”

“The most amazing moment of the day, for me, it was right when I started to walk down the aisle.  Seeing Matt at the end of the aisle with all of our closest friends and family in that beautiful place – it was overwhelming!”

“We chose Hacienda del Secreto because we wanted a private wedding.  We didn’t want to get married next to strangers on their vacation, AND we wanted a beautiful vacation where all of our friends and family would be forced to become each others’ friends and family :) Hacienda del Secreto was perfect.”

“The service at Hacienda del Secreto is just fantastic.  Mauricio and his staff are working around the clock to make your stay effortless.  Also next door at Secret Beach Villas, Liza and Miguel were phenomenal.”

“Matt’s from Australia, I have lived all over the US, and we live in Canada.  No matter what we were going to have to Travel for Love, might as well go some place we like!”
