Kristee Smith

Owner/ Founder

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 my own 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 definitely 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!

Erin Dionicio

Coordinator

Greetings from Sunny Mexico my fellow Fresa’s!  My name is Erin, and though I have lived Beachside in lovely Mexico for almost 13 years, I am originally from the not so warm climate of Wisconsin, USA.  I spent a great part of my life “Flying the Friendly Skies” as a flight attendant and decided to set up shop permanently in the area of Playa Del Carmen after the wonderful world of Party and Event planning captured my heart years ago!

In the past 8 years I have been fortunate enough to coordinate some of the most spectacular Parties and Events here in Mexico.  However more than that I have built great relationships with some of the most highly acclaimed and up and coming Service providers and Vendors in both Cancun and the Riviera Maya.

I have been lucky enough to be part of many great events here in Mexico, however my True Love is the coordination of Weddings.  Having an opportunity to dedicate myself fully to Fresa Weddings is a dream come true.  Of all of the things we can offer you, I assure you that the most important thing we can offer you is a commitment to you and our True Love and Passion for all things Destination Weddings!  We can’t wait to show you!
