It’s been five days since we returned from Mexico and I’m just now blogging about it because we had 2000+ pictures to look through. So here’s a little blog about the wedding and our vacation in Mexico… but we still have many more photos that we’ll post later!
Jessica & Curtis planned to tie the knot in Mexico… so us and 50 other people decided to join in their happy celebration last week! Yep, that’s right, 50 other people came to Mexico for Jessica & Curtis! Zach took pictures for the wedding – along with a lot of other pre-wedding events over the past year! I was a bridesmaid, along with Molly & April. It was pretty amazing to see that many people come out for their wedding! The picture above is from the ceremony and all 50-some people in attendance… we needed a big group picture after the wedding!
We got to Cancun on Wednesday afternoon and took an hour-long bus ride to the Barcelo resort. Wednesday night we spent noticing the upgrades to the resort since being there two years ago. Even the food was better! Thursday we got to hit the beach… which ended up being pretty cold – not like Colorado cold… but cold enough that we didn’t lay on our towels in our swim-suites, we covered up with our towels! Friday, it was windy… really windy… so windy you couldn’t sit on the beach because you’d get sand-blasted! So we either got in the ocean or sat pool-side so that we didn’t get sand blasted… thank goodness for lots of palm-tree trunks to keep the wind down at the pool! Friday night we did the rehearsal and cocktail party. Zach took a lot of pictures, here are a few:
Saturday we got up and hung out on the beach a little bit. The sun was out and the wind seemed like it was dying down. The girls got cleaned up and were ready to take pictures with Zach by 2 pm. We walked around the resort and took a lot of pictures, while Joe went out with the guys to take pictures too. Here are just a couple of us girls…
Then we headed to the reception… the food was great and the dancing was fun! Everyone had a blast! After the reception was over, we all went to the theatre for Karaoke night… Molly & April got up and sang… a few of the guys got up and sang… then the whole wedding party was up there dancing on the stage (in our wedding attire) in front of everyone… it was fun! What a beautiful day!
And finally… Zach was so busy taking pictures that we didn’t get many of just us… but here’s a couple of my favorites:
It was a great vacation with family and friends… we were pretty worn out when we got home! Zach went through all of his photos and picked probably 300 of his favorites… they will be posted on our Gallery soon… I’ll make another post when they’re ready to look at.
