A Wedding at the Water’s Edge


It was in front of a breathtaking waterfront view of Toronto that Darrell proposed to Yola, mid-romantic picnic. After such an incredible start to their engagement, they knew they wanted an equally incredible end. Yola had always dreamt of a destination wedding – somewhere tropical, where they could exchange vows barefoot in the sand, while surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Months later, while at a bridal show, Yola stumbled upon WOW Specialist Shalene Dudley of Latitude Concierge Travel at the end of the last aisle. Shalene was welcoming, energetic, and knowledgeable and exactly what Yola wanted in   a wedding planner. As she was taking her through the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotels wedding brochure, Yola fell in love with the idea of marrying at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya.

Flash forward a year and the couple was standing in front of their 24 guests getting ready to exchange I dos. Even storm clouds couldn’t ruin their plans of marrying with a white sandy backdrop. Quick thinking from their resourceful Wedding Coordinator Belen Hernandez led the couple to made a quick location change to the Chichen Gazebo, which ended up perfectly suiting their day.

From their welcome lunch to their farewell cocktails, the trip was just as they had always envisioned. They could sit back and indulge in massages, facials, spa treatments and more, knowing that they were in good hands.

“My favorite part of our wedding day was the ease of everything and not having to worry about anything.  Belen took care of all the small details and was present for all the moments.  It was the wedding of my dreams”.

And with all of the beautiful pictures from the day, they’ll be sure to cherish it for years to come.
