Activites

 

Arthur and I planned some activities for everyone to do everyday. We set up a couple of tours to snorkel cenotes, hike up mayan pyramids, and swim with the turtles, etc. Unfortunately, Arthur and I had to skip Chitchen Itza (while all our guests went) because we have to do our pre-wedding photoshoot (will post later).

We set up a bunch of silly games for everyone to play. At the end we awarded scratch and win tickets:

We initially planned to go to Cocobongo on Thursday (the 2nd night there). However, they said the show is sold out :( So we had to go on the night after our wedding (and that morning we had a super early underwater photoshoot), which is the last night before we had to fly off. Having said all that, it was SUPER fun. Arthur does not enjoy clubs, but he LOVES Cocobongo. Arthur was on stage for Gangnam Style, while I was on stage with him and for a few other songs.

Pre-Wedding Photos Part II

 

We already had pre-wedding photos in Kelowna...and because of our hectic schedule during whole wedding week, we asked Gonzalo take our TTD photos prior to our wedding. And so, while our guests went to Chichen Itza, me in the least expensive gown and Art in his least expensive outfit, was picked up by my makeup artist to do the consultation. Had my hair and make up done up at their home and then around 3pm Gonzalo came by my makeup artist's place to pick us up and off we went to a beach for some pictures.

 

Here are some of the beautiful shots that Gonzalo took for us:

Gonzalo took many more pictures, and I am only posting a small portion of what he gave us during the pre-wedding photos.

 

We were SO LUCKY since right when we are done with the pictures, it started pouring for 2 hours!
