“Cobe and I have been together for over a decade. We have faced many obstacles to get to where we are today. On our wedding day we beat all odds that were against us and the happy emotions of becoming one with my best friend took over.” – Lilit
Seeing Lilit so overwhelmed by emotion that the tears are literally dropping from her eyes we knew how much this moment meant to her and Chicobe. We asked Lilit to share her some reflections about their destination wedding.
Del Sol: We love unique all the individual ways that brides and grooms personalize their weddings and unity ceremonies – your watch exchange was super unique! How did you decide on that?
Lilit: “Cobe loves watches, and I have always begged him to either wear matching themed clothes or have matching shoes and he would always reject the idea.”
“On our wedding day, to symbolize our unity, he got us matching watches that were engraved: “2 became 1, 4/29/2017”. We wear them ALL the time! I was so surprised, not just at the gift, but that he took this silly idea of matching and incorporated it into our wedding.”
Del Sol: We love that technology brings us closer and that you had Lilit’s father attend your wedding ceremony via Facetime!
“My dad was not able to come to the wedding due to passport issues at the very last minute. So, thank goodness for technology! He was able to witness in real time the wedding ceremony. It was very important to me that he was a part of it somehow.”
Del Sol: What was the most amazing moment of your day?
Lilit: “The most amazing moment of my day was saying I Do to my husband. It was by far the BEST moment of my life!”
Cobe: “For me it was seeing Lilit walk down the isle in her stunning wedding dress.”
Del Sol: How was your experience with Valeria and the the del Sol team?
“Our experience with the Del Sol team was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! Valeria was seriously incredible. We loved working with her, she was so easy, just went with the flow, and we just had so much fun! We cannot thank her enough!”
Del Sol: Why did you choose Paradisus Playa del Carmen?
Lilit: “We wanted a very intimate wedding in paradise. Cancun was close enough for loved ones to travel and the scenery was beyond picturesque.”
“Paradisus spoke a level of class that some other resorts didn’t seem to have.Their grounds are so beautiful, so well kept, and they seriously treat you like royalty.”
“As we were having a destination wedding, it was important to us to have for our loved ones stay at an amazing resort with beautiful surroundings, amazing food, and just quality resort living during their stay. ”
“Araceli, who was our wedding coordinator was just incredible. She didn’t let us worry about ANYTHING! Everything exceeded our expectations and we were just so grateful to have someone make our dream wedding a reality.”
