Del Sol: You guys have an amazing long distance story – you have had several years living physically far apart and even now you’re married you will still not be able to live together straight away. What is the secret to a successful long-distance relationship?
“Communication is of the utmost importance.” – Hali
“We make sure to make time to speak to one another every single day, whether it’s 5 minutes or 2 hours. We also plan a trip to see each other. That gives us something to look forward to… kind of like the light at the end of the tunnel.”
Del Sol: What did finding true love to your heart?
Hali: “Finding true love gave me a sense of fulfillment and completion. It allowed me to finally let my guards down and accept the man that was standing before me. Love made me more trusting, and a better woman.”
Del Sol: Why did you decide to Elope in Mexico?
“We initially wanted a ‘normal’ wedding with family and friends. After the engagement, we both changed our minds since our time together is limited with the long distance between us.”
“We wanted to get married at a beautiful beach and knew Mexico would be the place to do it.” – Hali
“The thought of inviting family with trying to coordinate with everyone’s schedules and the thought of not having a private honeymoon was too stressful. We were lucky to have family that understood and respected our privacy.”
Del Sol: Why did you choose Secrets Maroma?
“We chose Secrets Maroma for our Elopement as we were looking for a very romantic luxurious all-inclusive adults-only resort to cater to our wedding needs.” – Hali
“Secrets Maroma have had some of the best reviews and included the wedding package with the junior suite swim-out room.”
“We went to Cancun in 2012 and came back to the Riviera Maya for this event. I have also been on cruises stopping along Mexican ports and Playa del Carmen. We have never experienced anything dangerous. I believe that if people are worried, they are safest in tourist areas.”
“After traveling to many places in the Caribbean, Canada, countries in Europe, and even to Morocco, I have never had anywhere that comes close to the service and hospitality that I’ve received in Mexico. It’s by far my favorite place to visit.” – Hali
Del Sol: How about getting into the water in your wedding dress?!
“I was really excited to do get into the water with my wedding dress!” – Hali
“I really wasn’t sure of how it would turn out since I wasn’t wearing a flowing dress. After diving in, I realized with the way Sol was photographing that it was going to turn out great.”
Del Sol: How was working with your elopement photographer Sol Tamargo?
“Sol was absolutely amazing!!! She definitely knew what direction to take at all the right moments. She was very professional and extremely artistic.” – Hali
“Sol was everything we were looking for in an elopement photographer and more. She made our wedding day perfect with her warmth and kindness.”
