Shan, hoping you've heard something from your WC by now. 

 

Here's the reading that my friend did for us: 

 

 

Marriage means that you have both decided to live the rest of your lives together as husband and wife, promising to face the future together, accepting whatever may lie ahead. Soon you will be declared man and wife, but you will have to decide each day that stretches out before you, that you truly want to be married.

 

Love makes the burdens lighter, because you divide them. It makes joys more intense because you share them. It makes you stronger so you can reach out and become involved in life in ways you dared not risk alone.

 

True marriage begins well before the wedding day, and the efforts of marriage continue well beyond the ceremony's end. A brief moment in time and the stroke of the pen are all that is required to create the legal bond of marriage, but it takes a lifetime of love, commitment, and compromise to make marriage durable and everlasting. Today you declare your commitment to each other before family and friends, your yesterdays were the path to this moment, and your journey to a future of togetherness becomes a little clearer with each new day.

We had a good mix of alone time and time with friends. We had everyone come by our suite to visit - so the crowd ebbed and flowed. I really loved having several days with everyone, rather than just a few hours. 

 

I only have 1 pro pic back so far, she sent me an early preview. I should have the full preview by next week! My photog has been emailing me that the pics keep making her cry and she's having a hard time editing them - I think that's a good sign.

aww great pic! I love your flowers!! :)

 

That's good- I hope we do too- I am really looking forward to vacationing with everyone, but I'd like for us to have equal parts alone time- here's to hoping it works out!

      you can see sunrise and sunset times http://www.timeanddate.com. Just punch in your location under the sun and moon calculator and month.  I think for that part of mexico, the sun sets around 5pm.

        Yea i've done that and the time is 5:04. but not really sure what that means, is it pitch black at 5? When does the sun start setting? What's it like between 4:30-5 versus 4-4:30.

        there is still some light at 5, but it dwindles pretty fast. If I had it to do over, I would bump the ceremony back to 3:30pm.

         

        here's a (non-pro!) photo that was taken right after our ceremony (about 4:30). You can see the sun is pretty low - we got some nice sun-flare shots, but I wish we'd had more light.
