“The moment Morgan came around the corner and started coming down the aisle. I lost all control of emotions and started crying and laughing at the same time.”
“I’ll never forget those feelings of overwhelming love for my soon-to-be wife. As soon as we locked eyes, that was it, I was mesmerized and couldn’t take them off of her. Not only is she the most beautiful woman in the world, but more importantly the glow on her face and the big smile she wore were priceless. She seemed happier and more at peace than I ever have seen her. It’s hard to put into words, but you will see it in the pictures del Sol took!” – Clint

Morgan and Clint chose the beautiful beach of Secrets Akumal for their wedding day. The relaxed location suited their intimate wedding group perfectly. These 2 have a STRONG connection! With family love surrounding them we were blown away by the energy between Morgan and Clint! We asked them to tell us a little more about their day.
Morgan: “The most amazing moment for me was the moment we were pronounced husband and wife and the kiss to seal it. I’ve been waiting all my life for this moment with the perfect person. Clint is absolutely the one.”
Del Sol: talk to us about the words you exchanged during the day. You wrote each other letters before the ceremony and we loved your vows :)
Clint: “Morgan and I exchanged letters before the ceremony. In her note to me, she reminded me of a time we went for frozen yogurt and laughed about as hard as you can laugh for about 15 minutes straight. I don’t even remember what we were laughing about, but it was one of those simple and joyful, but powerful moments in life when all seems right in the world.”
“The part of Morgan’s vows that really resonated with me was when she said that before we met, she started to think that nothing would ever work out for her. It breaks my heart to think about it even though it gave me an opportunity to show her how she deserves to be loved.” – Clint
“I know she had a pretty tough life at times and we have some difficult moments even now, but true love and genuinely caring for each other can overcome all. We started dating, fell in love, and she finally had an answer to her question of whether or not something would work out for her. My love for Morgan will stand the test of time. I hope even when we are very old she still thinks something finally worked out for her!”
Morgan: “As Clint said we exchanged letters on our wedding day, before the ceremony. Clint‘s letter was beautifully written and reminded me how much he truly loves me. The best part about his letter was I did not receive it until minutes before walking down the aisle. I has a special moment of clarity and emotion sitting there reading his words only moments before meeting him at the alter. It made the minutes leading up to the ceremony even more emotional and intense.”
“During the ceremony, Clint recited hand written vows to me. They described us perfectly and were indeed, extraordinary.”
Del Sol: What other moments really stood out?
Morgan: “I felt there were so many special moments throughout the day. One particular moment that stood out to me was during the ceremony. Our officiant, Alaina, asked that we take a moment to remember those that are no longer with us. She proceeded with the reading of 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8. This may be a common reading at wedding but for me the sequence was everything.”
“My grandfather passed away and was not able to see me get married. He helped raise me and was very close to my heart. When I was younger I wrote a paper that described him having a stroke and overcoming the obstacles that went along with it. In this paper I quoted the exact Corinthians verse that our officiant surprised us with in our ceremony.”
“We were not aware of what Alaina would say at our ceremony. In the moment she asked about remembering loved ones, I thought of my grandfather. In the next second, she spoke the Corinthians verse that reminded me of him. It was very emotional and a sign to me that he was there.”
Clint: “As Morgan said, there were many special and touching moments. I really enjoyed my brother’s best man speech and was surprised at how well he did since I’m usually the one giving speeches. He brought back so many funny memories from our childhood, but also was very sweet and thoughtful in incorporating Morgan even though he does not know her well. It was the perfect blend of poking fun at me but also being sentimental and saying something meaningful to us.”
Del Sol: How did you decide on an Akumal Destination wedding?
“We had a vision for our dream wedding: a natural setting with a beautiful beach. Our Akumal destination wedding is exactly what we envisioned. The landscaping and surrounding jungle set the most beautiful backdrop for our reception and our guests stay. The beach was endlessly beautiful, with the white sand and turquoise waters.”
Morgan: “Ever since I was young, I had dreamed of a beach wedding. Luckily, when I met Clint, we soon discovered we had the same vision. We both have smaller, close-knit families. We decided our group was the ideal size for a destination wedding.”
“In 2017, we wanted to plan a vacation to a destination neither of us had been. This brought us to the beautiful country of Mexico. We decided to stay on the east coast, near Playa del Carmen. To say we fell in love was an understatement. Everything was incredibly beautiful, from the beaches to the people we met. The decision to have our wedding here was instantaneous.”
Morgan: “An important aspect of Secrets Akumal was the wedding coordination. We worked with both Carolina and Abi. In the beginning stages, Carolina provided all the information we could have asked for. She was able to answer every question we have. The organization by this wedding planning team was impeccable. Abi was simply amazing and has all of our appreciation. She made every detail perfect, both before we were there and every minute after we arrived. Our wedding day was an absolute dream, that she made a reality.”
Del Sol: How was your experience with the del Sol team?
“The Del Sol team was incredible. I’ve never seen two people work so hard to make sure they captured every special moment. Polly and Valeria were funny, engaging, professional, artistic, creative and stern when they needed to be to make sure the shots were perfect. We are so thrilled with the pictures they took. We particularly liked the “point of view” shots they captured during several key moments.” – Clint
“Thank you all so much for everything. It was an incredible experience!”
