It's been awhile since I posted a blog so I thought I would give an update.
My fiancé and I decided that we were going to do the 'legal' wedding in Texas and have the symbolic wedding in Mexico. We found a gorgeous chapel in the Texas Hill Country to have our outdoor ceremony at. I wore a short white lace dress with blue Kendra Scott earrings and cowboy boots here is a link to the chapel we got married at http://chapeldulcinea.org
We got married on June 16, 2014 and it was perfect.
Here is a list of things that are good know know during the whole booking/planning process
-Your first WC will be based out of Miami. You won't be working with the onsite coordinators until you arrive in Mexico.
-More than likely you will have your meeting with the on site coordinators the morning after you arrive. I tried to schedule this time in advance as we were trying to arrange an excursion, but was not able to.
-If you bring your own decorations there is a set up fee which is $5 pp.
Date of engagement: 1/11/14
Date wedding confirmed: 2/14/14
Date of wedding: 7/27/14

This was by far the most stressful and confusing part for me. I had a ring on my finger and thought finding the perfect place to get married would be simple. WRONG. We wanted to get married this summer and with it already being January I feared that dates would be already booked or booking up fast. We also knew that we would be working with hurricane season and couldn't put the wedding off till Sept.
Initially we were trying to decide between Cabo and Riviera Maya. I quickly learned that the
Scott and I got engaged on January 11, 2014. He made my heart melt with what he wrote for our wedding website...
"Since the day I met Casey I just knew she was the one. You know how people say, “there is just something about her that I can’t explain”…well that was not the case. Being around her was so comfortable that we immediately became best friends. I was over the moon for this beautiful, sweet, kind, amazing woman. As we got to know each other I realized I found the person I was meant to
