    Pre-Ceremony, (Bride side shot by Critsey Rowe, Groom side by Thomas Geist)



    Mireya was the best makeup/hair artist a girl could ask for!



    Crosstown Sweethearts




    Opening his gift (my boudoir book)

    boy opening their gifts (dog tags with their nicknames for all and unique personalized gifts too)


    my gals opening their gifts (crystal starfish necklaces and a fairy necklace for the flowergirl)





    Opening my gift (a pink nano)


    Showing off my "Property of Mouse" undies (his nickname since before I knew him)





    I did have clip on extensions (real Remy hair from Sally's) to add fullness (not length) so my due would survive the wind! I was very happy with them!  Might have to wear them again soon!






    with his parents

    before they blew away LOL

    our wine ceremony box

    petal toss, programs, and personalized sandalwood fan favors tucked in the guest chair sashes






    Ahem... the White Sox side (the good side) is not visible at the moment)

    My homemade boutonnieres (only the grooms held up... lol)

    See!  Lol


    Sand, wine, and dove ceremony set up

    I was part of a starfish passing (blue) and started my own (clear)

    two canisters (one is much smaller and hidden) containing both pairs of grandparents ashes in each


    our little dancer


    only my dad came to the destination part (he walked me to the aisle and half way up)

    Grom started walking toward me when I made it to the aisle

    We met in the middle

    We walked the rest of the way with out my dad to face our future together!


    I thought we got a pic of him falling asleep (I'll have to find it) sooo cute!














    Wine ceremony (we both wrote love letters the day of the wedding, which were sealed and locked in a box with glasses and a wine bottle at our ceremony. On our five year, we will reopen the box and drink our wine while reading how we felt about one another 5 years ago.  Also to be used if the couple ever contemplates ending their marriage; as a reminder of their love and to rekindle the love)


    Sang to my Groom



    Dove release













    His family

    My family (alot of my friends made it, but my family couldn't besides my dad)


    The bridal party (sans crabby ring bearer)

    extra guests




    To be continued...

      before the cake stand was assembled.  Just put four of our centerpiece vases down as a base, and ordered a 12x12 sheet of square glass to put the cake on top!  (centerpieces had water, petals from Target, and submersible LED lights)

      All lit up!

          Very stormy day



          so glad finally stopped on the day of our wedding it waited until the days following our wedding (but we still were kinda bummed about lack of sunny TTD photos)





          I look yucky here and was clenching my muscles because of how cold I was, so my arms look extra buff and I'm not feeling my pretties... but I looooove the backdrop!





























          practicing in the pool for our cenote shoot the next day


          storm blew the chairs in the pool.. lol








          at the entrance of the cenote



          1, 2, 3!




















          It's like a mirror up top.. and there's a fishy!





          Soon to follow...


          some sunny day after session photos with the resort people after our photogs left.  Stay tuned!

              Your photos are beautiful. I loved the bridesmaid dresses too. My bridesmaids also walked down the aisle carrying umbrellas…it was one of my favourite details. Congrats!
