The 16 November 2020 was unforgettable for Alexis and Mike

They decide to unite their love, and do a destination wedding in the Riviera Maya paradise, they choose the El Dorado Royal for the venue,

We did a little interview with Alexis the Bride, she shares with us their love story…

*Why do you choose this destination to celebrate your wedding:

I love traveling and I have never been to Mexico. It seemed like it would be a completely different experience than the weddings we were in. It feels like it will be a special time with our loved ones in an intimate environment.

*Where do you visit us from?

New Jersey USA

*How did you meet?

Alexis and Mike met in the wonderful world of higher education at Seton Hall University. They lived in the same building and were both involved in Greek life where they had the opportunity to run into each other from time to time. Lex’s gorgeous eyes and fun-loving disposition were more than enough to lock Mike in. He was smitten. They began dating on November 23rd, 2014 and haven’t stopped smiling since. Four short years later they got engaged and are so eager to start the rest of their lives together. Now six years later they will say I DO!

*What´s your engagement story:

the journey to us….

-Mike, with the help of his wonderful mother, picked out a ring a few months in advance. Then Mike called in the reinforcements, James Meil and Carlie Singler, to help plan the engagement. Four years to the day after Alexis and Mike began officially dating, it was time for a pivotal moment in their journey. After days of unease and a sleepless night for Mike, Lex awoke to a smiling boyfriend wishing her a happy four-year anniversary and inquiring into her shift from the prior night. Despite her plans to “go black Friday shopping” with Carlie, Mike’s encouraging pleas for Lex to take a shower and prepare for the day fell on deaf ears. Something to the effect of, “I’m not doing anything special today” was cited as the rationale. From fear of ruining the surprise, Mike gave up on his hopes for a bathed fiancé and bid Alexis well on her day with Carlie. Not long after the girls departed, James and Mike snapped into action and drove to the inlet where Lex and Mike would hang out under the stars at times throughout their relationship. Carlie expertly navigated Lex through the charade and even managed to at least get her nails done before delivering her to the checkpoint (inlet) where James and Mike were waiting, ring and cameras ready. Afterward, all the families went to Mike’s parent’s house for pictures and celebrating.

Quarantine love celebration in Mexico!

Hay historias de amor que no tuvieron lógica, les llamamos destino. ¡Esas historias que al igual que las películas románticas todo parece magia!

¿Crees en el amor a primera vista? En ese amor donde toda la ideología que tienes sobre las relaciones la tiras por la ventana; parecería increíble pero nuestra hermosa Novia Tara tuvo la oportunidad de experimentarlo, una historia que merece ser contada.

Tara voló un día desde Miami a Acapulco México, para tomar unas vacaciones, después de 2 matrimonios fallidos no esperaba volver a tener contacto con el amor, centrada en su trabajo y su hijo, era como esperaba su futuro. Y aquí es donde el destino metió las manos para dar un giro a su historia. Al igual que las escenas de cine, vio pasar a un alto hombre que por un momento cruzo miradas con ella convirtiéndolo en un momento mágico y significativo para ambos.

Pasaron un corto tiempo juntos en Acapulco, pero compartieron sus contactos y al regrese a Miami él le seguía escribiendo desde Alemania, se conectaron profundamente, hubo una química inexplicable, que los hacia hablar diariamente, hacer videollamadas perdiendo la noción del tiempo. Para él quien también había tenido ya un matrimonio fallido no tenía lógica, pero era muy claro lo que sentía.

Por lo que después de 8 meses de grandes charlas compartidas, decide proponerle matrimonio a Tara, él ya había preparado todo incluso para la boda, a pesar que solo seguían su relación por internet él sabia que era lo que tenían que hacer, ambos trabajaban en casa por lo que sería fácil para ellos acomodar sus vidas para estar juntos.

Y así es como llegan a la Riviera Maya, México para llevar acabo la ceremonia de casamiento, ambos se encontraron aquí en el Hotel Viceroy dónde tuvo lugar su boda el día 8 de Julio de 2020. Se quedaron un mes de luna de miel para recuperar su tiempo perdido sin poder verse. Posteriormente viajaron a Miami a realizar una segunda boda en compañía de familiares de Tara.

¡Después viajarán a Alemania donde tendrán una tercera boda con los familiares del Novio, para finalmente mudarse a Australia para pasar sus días juntos!

A veces la realidad supera la ficción, y esta hermosa pareja tuvo un mágico romance, a pesar de las situaciones externas, este tipo de historias nos llenan de magia y esperanza. Aun existen los finales felices, porque ni mil tormentas, huracanes o pandemias pueden evitar el amor entre dos personas y su camino a la felicidad.

There are love stories that aren’t logical, we call them destiny. Those stories that just like romantic movies, everything seems like magic!

Do you believe in love at first sight? In that love where all the ideology you have about relationships you throw it out the window; It would seem incredible but our beautiful Bride Tara had the opportunity to experience it, a story that deserves to be told.

Tara flew one day from Miami to Acapulco Mexico, to take a vacation, after 2 failed marriages she didn’t expect to have contact with love again. Focused on her work and her son, it was as she expected her future. And this is where fate put its hands to turn its history around. Like the movie scenes, she saw a tall man pass by who for a moment, locked gazes with her, making it a magical and meaningful moment for both of them.

They spent a short time together in Acapulco, but they shared their contacts and when she returned to Miami , he kept writing to her from Germany!

They connected deeply, there was an inexplicable chemistry, which made them speak daily, make video calls, losing track of time. For him who had also already had a failed marriage, there was no logic, but what he felt was very clear.

So after 8 months of great shared talks, he decides to propose to Tara, he had already prepared everything even for the wedding, although they only followed their relationship online he knew what they had to do, both worked in home so it would be easy for them to arrange their lives to be together.

And this is how they arrive in the Riviera Maya, Mexico to carry out the wedding ceremony, both met here at the Hotel Viceroy where their wedding took place on July 8, 2020. They stayed a month of honeymoon to recover his lost time without being able to see himself. Later they traveled to Miami to perform a second wedding in the company of Tara ‘s family.

They will then travel to Germany where they will have a third wedding with the groom’s guests, to finally move to Australia to spend their days together!

Sometimes reality surpasses fiction, and this beautiful couple had a magical romance, despite external situations, these types of stories fill us with magic and hope. Happy endings still exist, because not a thousand storms, hurricanes or pandemics can prevent love between two people and their path to happiness.
