Tamarind lobster tails on a crispy tostada

 Caviar served on seashells,

 Tai veggi rolls with prune and ginger sauce

 Teresa Tart (tart made with puff pastry topped with eggplant, tomato and cheese)

 That helped them get into the party mood and satisfy any hunger they might of had while we took our pictures and arrived to the hacienda. They enjoyed this while they looked on to a  Mayan fire dancer show.  You can see a tiny bit of show on the video above it was attached to the end of the Mayan Ceremony Clip.

First Dance At last by Etta James! We met online many years ago and went through so many things to be together having to face family obstacles, job loses, and living in different counties UK and UK.  It was crazy but we managed to make it through it all.  This song in the end was fit for us.dance.jpg

So for the dress laddies I chose white!  Many pick the Ivory but for some reason the white was stunning to me! Here is a clip of us getting ready in the morni

ning, and then the day after trash de dress video!

Sorry to hear about the bustling mix up, but you still looked gorgeous!  Thanks for the tip about the 2nd loop, good idea as the bottom of the dress could be pretty heavy.
