Hatfields & McCoys Star Matt Barr Ties the Knot in Mexico

Hatfields & McCoys star Matt Barr has tied the knot with Kylie Duff in a three-day wedding celebration at the Rosewood Mayakoba in Mexico. The couple first met during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 when Duff was turning 35 and her family organized a video compilation of well wishes since they couldn’t celebrate in person. Barr, who is the son of Duff’s longtime friend, submitted a video message and the attraction was instant. Six weeks later, the couple met in person on Nantucket island and their relationship blossomed from there.

The couple later took their first trip to the Rosewood together, and their three-day getaway quickly became six. In November 2021, Matt proposed on Mnemba Island, off the northeastern coast of Zanzibar. While planning their nuptials, the pair enlisted Barr’s cousin Emily Campbell, founder of the luxury event planning company Gobella, to create the perfect destination wedding where they could “introduce the place we love, to the people we love.”

The weekend wedding festivities kicked off with welcome drinks and featured Mayan fire dancers. The rehearsal dinner took place under the stars in the La Ceiba Garden & Kitchen. For her walk down the aisle, Duff chose a custom Cuccinelli Shaheen design, which featured custom gold and bronze beading and a woven constellation map of their sun signs and wedding date. For the afterparty, the bride changed into another custom piece Leal Decarret. Barr wore a bespoke, earth tone linen suit by New York-based atelier Michael Andrews.

On their big day, the couple spent the early part of the day sharing coffee, as they do each day. “We left ourselves time to hit the beach to see our friends and family before the preparation began,” adds the pair who chose to forgo a traditional bridal party and instead had their younger siblings and their nieces and nephews participate in the processional. After the ceremony, which was officiated by Barr’s younger brother, guests were whisked away to the reception where the 11-piece Walton Stout band played during an elegant cocktail hour before turning it up for the dance party.
