Beautiful, Beautiful Wedding!

Yes, it’s been awhile since you’ve heard from me.  There has been too much going on to keep up with blogging. 


Despite a threat from Hurricane Paula dancing around Playa del Carmen, the Cancun airport was opened back up and Paula visited Cuba instead!  What a relief!



Many, many workers pulled together to set up the gazebo and make sure everything went off without a hitch.  What a gorgeous setting this was for a wedding.



Here Jamie and I are sharing a moment together before the ceremony.  I’m sure we are saying

“We did it!”

Father of the Bride enters the room to whisk his Baby Girl away



Jamie and her sisters are taken through the pool area after all the guests are seated under the Gazebo.  Father and Mother of the Bride follow.  This was a fun moment as all the people by the pool were standing and cheering for the Bride.  :)



Almost to the altar now!





Introducing the new

Mr. and Mrs.



Doesn’t the resort almost look like this could have taken place in Italy?

Next comes the wedding reception back home this Friday night.

The fun continues!

Even having seen these before...I am still taken aback by what a beautiful bride she is! Though, she is your baby, so I should not be surprised.
