Excellence Riviera Cancun Beach Wedding – Lindsey + Kyle

Almost two years ago, I had the honor to photograph Lindsey’s & Kyle’s Excellence Riviera Cancun beach wedding! To say it was a blast is an understatement – this wedding group really knew how to party – and what a better place to party than MEXICO?

  • Why did you pick Excellence Riviera Cancun for your wedding?

We shopped REALLY hard on Trip Advisor and other various sites. I think I read like 5,000 reviews on multiple resorts before narrowing it down to Excellence, El Dorado Royale, and the Valentin. We loved the comments regarding the luxuriousness about the resort and the resounding compliments of quality and service. 

At the end of the day, for us, it came down to the consistency of the reviews, and having two sets of friends that had been married there previously. We had never been to Mexico – or an all inclusive, and I have to say, Excellence did not disappoint. We LOVED the resort, the service, everything. It was stunning, and every single one of our guests was astounded with our choice. Our planner did an amazing job and everything possible to make our day perfect. We’ll be back next year and many more times, and we will always stay at Excellence Riviera Cancun!

  • What is your most memorable moment / what did you liked the most from your wedding day?

Every time I was able to share a moment with Kyle. We only had 30 people there, but I really did cherish every moment we had alone! Outside of the cheesy, our dance party after the formalities was definitely our favorites all our friends and family just letting loose and fully enjoying themselves was exactly what we wanted from the day. Everyone had a total blast (even Monica!!) and we enjoyed every last second.

  • Do you have any tip for destination brides marrying in Riviera Maya / Mexico?

Don’t buy the biggest package! Buy the basics in a package and add on! Arrive early and enjoy a couple days alone. RELAX! Fly first class. Buy your girls’ dresses and hair. Visit the spa. Bring 70 SPF plus. And don’t feel like you have to spend every moment with your friends, they totally understand. 

  • How was your experience with Monica Lopez Photography?

Moni was the best. She was so flexible and put up with all of our crazy. I’ll use her for any opportunity I can when we return, just to reconnect. Monica really became a friend of ours. Not just a photog!
