Monica & Daniel’s Riviera Maya Wedding
There is something really magical about choosing someone every day, over and over again, for 40 years, Monica & Daniel have been together for a lifetime, and decided to renew their vows with a beautiful Riviera Maya Wedding in Playa del Carmen, México. Our team of photographers in Riviera Maya felt very much inspired for the love they share, which shows not only on their faces, but in the faces of their children, grandchildren and everyone who was there. We are in love with this family!
We needed to know the secret recipe for an everlasting marriage, for us and for our newlyweds! So, we asked, and they shared their wisdom.
Growing up in Argentina
M&D: We had a happy, austere childhood, we both grew up in Buenos Aires and the values that our parents instilled in us were respect and appreciation for the human being.
The friend of a friend
M: We were introduced by a former middle school friend. She was going out with a friend of Daniel’s at the time.
40 years together
M&D: 40 years have passed, and from day one, the most important things were respect, support and growing up together. I was 19 and he was 22 when we got married for the first time. There were some hard times but we knew and could make our love prevail.
“I do” again!
M&D: We dreamed of repeating our love confirmation moment with a beautiful Riviera Maya Wedding and imagined it as a very intimate and special time. A beach wedding in Mexico was the perfect choice. Our favourite part of the day was when Daniel walked with our daughter, and me with our two sons. I loved Dany’s face when he saw me, the smile on our oldest granddaughters face, and my mom’s tears.
A beautiful family
M&D: We have, thank God, three of our parents still with us, three children, two daughters in law, a son in law and six beautiful grandchildren. One of our lifelong’s best friend was there as well.
M&D: From the moment Dany asked me to get married again, I started dreaming about my Riviera Maya Wedding. Preparation, choosing a dress, music and everything we needed. I loved thinking of that moment. It was going to be unique for everyone. I cherish the tears our daughter shed when she was walking with her father, the dimples in our oldest son’s face when he saw me down the aisle, the glossy look in the eyes of our other son, looks, smiles… One of my grandchildren said: “Grandma is a princess”. The gorgeous setting and being surrounded by our most intimate affections ended up being more than I could ever imagine a Riviera Maya Wedding would be.

A Riviera Maya destination wedding
M&D: The Paradisus staff did a great job and the services they provided for our Riviera Maya wedding were great. I would like to make a special mention to the wedding planner, who did an amazing job.
What’s your favourite image?
M&D: The one where we are holding hands and kissing during the ceremony, or the black & white one were we are on a runway. Or the one with my grandchildren too! It’s impossible to choose.
Monica & Daniel, we love your story! We are sure every couple would like an everlasting love just like yours.
