“I’m from Baja, California and Massimiliano (Max) is from Italy, luckily he decided to study his PhD in San Diego, where we met in 2007. From the start it was an instant spark and a mutual feeling of being at home in each other’s presence. I now believe that when two souls find each other again, the imprinted memories simply come back.
We dated for a while, with our ups and downs, but with no less love. Max did not believe in marriage, or thus he said so. So when during one of our holidays in Italy he went down on one knee, pulled a beautiful sparkler out of his pocket and proposed, I was startled and speechless! Wedding preparations immediately followed.
We both agreed our wedding was a “once in a lifetime celebration” and we wanted to make ours an affair to remember. We were looking for a destination wedding, since guests would be coming from Italy, U.S., South America and the North of Mexico. We wanted something classical with old world charm. After considering several cities and visiting different venues, we were both enchanted the minute we stepped into the mesmerizing Hacienda San Diego Cutz in beautiful Merida! We immediately knew we had found the perfect place!
Our wedding had a piece of both of us in all the details we selected. Music for me is what makes the world go round, for him it’s food! So as much enthusiasm as I dedicated in selecting each song, he equally meticulously selected each edible item from the initial appetizers to the final after coffee. We had a wonderful wedding planner who made a huge production seem effortless. It was a fantastic night, filled with fireworks, a full orchestra, endless food, decadent desserts but most importantly it was filled with family, friends and love!” – Bride, Lizbeth.
