Happy Legal Day Maura! **UPDATED W/PICS!**

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
