    My fiancee and I planned a beatiful wedding in the Mayan Riviera at Xpu-Ha, a private beach location we picked ourselves. We hired wedding coordinators from London, Ontario called Barefoot Weddings who only operate out of the Mayan. They were the most wonderful, helpful people and we couldn't have asked for better from them. We were supposed to be Married May the 8th, unfortunately, due to the swine flu epidemic our wedding had to be postponed. However, in spite of some negative reviews of an article that was published in the Ottawa Citizen, we've had a resounding amount of positive feedback, and were offered the opportunity to be married at a golf and country club just outside of Ottawa. I wish that our wedding had gone as planned, but everything happens for a reason, and I love my man regardless of where we say I do.

            I read the article about you guys a few days ago. One of the girls here actually posted it! It's so sad - but like you said you are still marrying the man of your dreams so that's all that matters really!!!

            Welcome to the forum!!!

              Welcome Heather! I'm also from Ottawa and read your article. I'm glad to hear you are still marrying the man of your dreams, although in an alternate location. We wish you all the happiness in the world no matter where the ceremony takes place. And you never know, a vow renewal in your dream local may be in your future. I'm glad to hear you are staying positive! Best of luck!
