They knew there would be a sign from above. The Riviera Maya wedding of Mystique and Fernando was an intimate celebration and unique because it would not be perfect weather.
Instead of arriving to a ceremony, they arrived to an epic rainbow in light fleeting rain. A Fernando waited for Mystique, the sky lit up with one of the most unbelievable backgrounds, everyone was in awe of the Caribbean Ocean looked. Instead of walk down the aisle, we had an impromptu “First Look” under the rainbow. Then they carried on with the ceremony.
Joined by only their closest family and friends, the couple traveled to the Riviera Maya luxury resort Secrets Maroma for their to spend time with loved ones. Their idea was one week on vacation with friends and family in paradise.
Rain can happen…and on most instances we find it brings people together. We have featured photos from this Riviera Maya wedding at Secrets Maroma on our post “Why Rain on the wedding day is awesome”

The Secrets Maroma resort sits on what has been voted one of the top beaches in the world, an ideal location for a beach wedding. Mystique wore a gown by Allure Bridals that showed off her figure and had an incredible full skirt and carried a vibrant pink bouquet. For a First look, it was appropriate in front of a Rainbow.
The sky may have been cloudy, but it blessed the couple with a huge rainbow for their portrait session on the beach. The ceremony took place under the wooden trellace of Secrets Maroma with a ring of palm trees… a perfect feet in the sand destination wedding.
The bride’s father was very emotional as he gave her away, a moving moment that all in attendance will remember. The bride’s brother was the videographer of the day and the conversation about weather and the sky was a theme. We couldn’t believe how a dark sky and rain could look so beautiful.
If any bride or groom asks “What happens if it rains on my wedding day”. We always say that “We hope to see a rainbow”.. then we show them this wedding.
Mystique and Fernando tied the knot and sealed the deal with a unity sand ceremony, the love in their eyes was just so obvious, so much emotion and passion! The newlyweds celebrated with their loved ones with champagne and cake and sparklers, a joyous Riviera Maya wedding day!
We are thankful to Mystique and Fernando for inviting us to share in your special family wedding. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness together. There were so many special and personal endearing moments among the family. Everyone was so close and we believe the rain actually helped make this a tighter ceremony.
