Thank you thank you thank you for all your well-wishes and prayers for good weather! Our legal day was fantastic!

 

We started off the day having breakfast at the café across the street on Saturday morning and then I left to get my hair done. I liked it, but I will definitely be doing my hair different for the wedding in Mexico because it didn’t hold up great in the wind and from moving around and being hugged by everyone, so I can’t imagine what it would’ve looked like if we had been dancing all night too. I haven’t gotten the photos loaded from my own camera but when I do, I will come back and add a close up photo of my hair.

 

We ended up actually doing our ceremony on the garden terrace overlooking the Chicago River at a fancy restaurant about a block from our house. The weather ended up being beautiful, there was a little bit of wind and it was a little cloudy during the ceremony, but the sun came out toward the end. We toasted with champagne afterwards, and had a few glasses of wine before heading to dinner with our parents. We spent the weekend at a hotel so we had a kind of mini-moon, which was really nice to have some privacy while his family had the run of our house.

 

Today (Sunday) we went to brunch at the Four Seasons Hotel with our parents before we took Jose’s parents to the airport. It was absolutely incredible! All in all, it was amazing, and we are so so so excited for our wedding in Mexico now!

 

Here are some highlights in photos from the day.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
