    Haceinda del Secreto is a Boutique Resort consisting of several small villas on Playa del Secreto or "Secret Beach" .

    We have reserved all the villas at Hacienda del Secreto and next door at Secret Beach Villas so we will have the place and the amazing beach to ourselves.

    These are 3/4/5/6 bedroom villas, each bedroom with its own bathroom. Each villa has its own pool, and all the villas are steps from eachother and the beach. The cost will be about $125 per person per night (double occupancy) and includes:

  • All meals & drinks (alcoholic & non-alcoholic)
  • Sea kayaks, snorkel gear, beach towels, boogie boards & pool toys
  • Daily maid service
  • Laundry service
  • Wifi
  • Transportation to/from airport (for those arriving Thursday & leaving on Tuesday)
  • A whole lot of fun
  • Matt & I will assign the rooms at the villas, but don't worry, we will be sure to put you with people we know you like or will like. If you have any special requests, let us know!

    If you have any questions about the villas or anything else, please don't hesitate to ask Matt or Krista!

    Our Wedding

    Bridal Party

    Duncan Buttenshaw

    Best Man

    As Duncan explained in his speech at my 21st birthday party, "I first became friends with Germany when we went to Matty together." ... Since that trip to Germany, Duncan and I have travelled across Europe together, through South America together, and are ever present parts of eachothers lives here in Toronto.

    Duncan lives in Toronto with his fiance, April.

    Suzi Maratta

    Maid of Honor

    Suzi & I met in High School but didn't become friends until after college when we became roommates. We had so much fun as roommates that she followed me when I moved to Cincinnati. Sadly, she did not follow me on my subsequent moves, but we see each other several times each year, usually rendezvous-ing somewhere fun.

    Suzi is married to Mike (Wall), and lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

    Jenn Johansson

    Maid of Honor

    My sister and of course, my oldest friend. Despite not having lived in the same state since I was 13, Jenni & I have always been very close, and I am very lucky to have her as a sister.

    Jenni is married to Ande Johansson, has two wonderful sons, Cameron and Parker, and lives in Orem, Utah.

    Amy Fisher-Bruey

    Bridesmaid

    Amy & I met my first day of school at my new junior high when I moved to Ohio. We quickly became friends, and saw eachother through our awkward, amazing teenage years. We also haven't lived is the same place in a long time, and are both pretty bad at talking on the phone, but when we see eachother, it's like nothing has changed in the past 20 years.

    Amy lives in Washington DC and is married to Tom Bruey.

    Tom Cliett

    Bridesman

    Yes, Tom is on the bride's side. Tom and I met in highschool, and became very good friends after college. He has moved regularly, and never to where I lived, but we somehow manage to spend more time together than some friends that live in the same city as me. I can always count on Tom to encourage me to make a fun bad decision, or to keep me away from a bad, bad decision.

    Tom lives in DC with his wife, Valentine.

    Kate Stephens

    Bridesmaid

    Kate and I were set up on a "blind date" by our good friend, Michael when I moved to Toronto. He had met Kate at a work event and had asked her if she liked wine, good food and travelling, and when she said yes, he replied "okay, you and Krista will be friends then." And so it was. Since then, Kate, Matt and I have had lots of good food way more than our share of wine!
