“We absolutely love the beach and traveling. We got engaged on a beach, and it was our dream to have an intimate outdoor wedding in paradise.” #TravelForLove – Secrets Maroma Beach Wedding
Alyssa and Bret chose one of our favorite tropical spots for their ceremony for their Secrets Maroma Beach Wedding! We love the ways that each couple customizes their wedding day. Alyssa and Bret chose a beautiful way of making their day personal with Alyssa’s father as their ceremony officiant.
“The ceremony was sacred, meaningful, personal and one of the most precious moments in our lives. It was our exact vision.” – Alyssa + Bret

“We have been together for a long time: 9 years. Our families have gotten to know us and our relationship so well over the years. With so many close friends and family in attendance, we knew that we wanted the ceremony to be deeply personal. It was important to us that the officiant knew us and our relationship.
“Alyssa’s father serving as the officiant made our dream ceremony come true. We were able to all sit down together over the few months leading up to the wedding and plan everything, discuss what was important to all of us and focus on making it something truly personal and special.”
“By walking through the readings, the vows, and the messages that were important to us and our relationship, it made the ceremony all ours.”
“Alyssa’s father’s homily was the only part that we did not hear until the ceremony and it was such a beautiful message and brought tears to many eyes.
Del Sol Photography: We love that you did a first look! Talk to us about that!
Bret: “The first look was awesome. My back was turned and so I had no idea when Alyssa would end up behind me. It was very exciting and I couldn’t wait to turn around. When I finally got that tap on the shoulder, I turned around and Alyssa looked so beautiful. The weather was perfect, Alyssa was perfect. It was surreal and I could not have been happier.” – Bret
Alyssa: “The first look was so much fun. Bret had no idea what the dress looked like, whether or not I would be wearing a veil, he didn’t know about the hairpiece or any of the other small details. It was so exciting to walk towards him and then experience his reaction.”
“I was also so thankful for the private time I got to spend with Bret right before the ceremony. The photographers made it so fun, I’m so thankful we made the decision to do the first look!” – Alyssa
Del Sol: What’s your top destination wedding advice and / or what was the most important lesson you learned from your wedding?
Alyssa: “Generally, my advice would be to give yourself plenty of time to plan for afar and ensure a timeline that captures what is the most important to you.”
Del Sol: What was the most amazing moment of your day?
“We both agree that the ceremony was the most amazing part of the whole day. A close second would be all of the wonderful and loving speeches at the reception.”
Del Sol: How was your experience with the del Sol Photography team?
“Our experience with the del Sol team was Incredible. Thank you so much to the Del Sol Photography photo and video team! It was a very busy and full day with a lot of extremely close family and friends. We thought they did an incredible job!”
