what inspires you? Hola! Mucho Gusto!! My name is Kristee and I am just plain delighted to meet you! My story is quite simple! It starts the same way we all did, with the search to find your true passion in this life and make it your career. After planning a family member's Destination Wedding in Mexico I was incredibly inspired, I decided to go against the grain, planning a more private wedding than what I was being offered at the All Inclusive Resorts, this was when It hit me. This was defiantly what I was meant to do with my life. Nothing had ever given me more happiness, Pride and Self-Fulfillment. So there was only one thing for me to do! I had to gain the experience needed to pursue this dream of mine. So, I decided to trade the lovely Canadian winters of London, Ontario and move to Mexico. I was lucky enough to secure employment at the beautiful Secrets Capri Resort & Spa in Playa Del Carmen as the Lead Wedding Coordinator. After successfully planning and executing more than 100 “Happily Ever After’s” at Secrets I could safely say there was nothing I hadn’t seen in the wonderful world of Destination Weddings, and I was more sure than ever that this was what I wanted to dedicate my life to! After 2 years of living in Mexico, I was now ready to return to my Dream. I decided to take all of my experience and knowledge of Planning Weddings in Mexico and create something that would highlight all of the wonderful things about Choosing a Destination Wedding, however offer an alternative to couples looking for more private and customized Weddings in Mexico. I feel so incredibly fortunate to have found what I truly Love to do in this life. So many couples have allowed me to be a part of the happiest day of their lives; I have the greatest job in the world!
what do you love about weddings? Gosh, what don't I love about weddings? I decided to enter into an industry where I get to be a big part of the happiest day of a couples lives. Most times I am one of the first contacts after the big question has been asked and this alone is special to me! I love hearing the story from the beginning. How you met, where the engagement happened. All of the goose bump giving details! I believe there needs to be a great connection between myself and my couples as in most cases we are working together for over a year. What I love about doing weddings here in Mexico specifically is being able to offer some sense of confidence in the process. Couples have to put a lot of trust into myself and my team as they are planning from afar and there is no greater feeling then knowing my couples feel safe and confident with myself and my team on the ground here in Mexico. When It finally comes to the wedding week our first official face to face is always so joyful for me and I love that my couples arrive feeling no stress the week of their wedding knowing we are more than prepared. This gives them the peace of mind they deserve to relax with all of their friends and family that have travelled to celebrate with them for the week. Fave thing though? That moment. When we are all set up and the vision we have all worked on has come together flawlessly. The wedding guests have arrived. Then the music starts. The processional gets me every time. When I see my Bride for the first time I still get chills. Its true. I have told all of my friends and family that the day I stop getting "That" feeling I will know it is time to move in a different direction. Somehow, I believe that day will never come:)
