riviera maya wedding

While we have photographed several weddings in Akumal in the past few years, we recently shot our first Secrets Akumal wedding. We loved it! This place is great! Nice design and layout, it didn’t feel too large and spread out, there is a nice beach along Akumal bay. Most importantly, they have a terrific wedding staff and we had the privilege of working with the super talented and very capable Abi (Abigail Palacio). You know she is good if the bride and groom keep raving about her. Patrick and Michelle did just that.

As you can see, it wasn’t too hard to avoid the crowds on Akumal beach. They chose to do the ceremony away from the beach, but we were close enough to head there for creative photos after the ceremony. Maybe a little walking on water at the infinity pool?

So many brides want a little more control over the look of their wedding and are discovering that it’s easier and cheaper to bring a suitcase full of their own designs from home, than to pay the resort to create for them. Michelle and Patrick chose some of the decorations for each table. Here are the rest of their sources:
