On 6/1/2015 the day before my wedding it had rained the whole entire day in PDC. Like the whole day. It was set at 100% chance to rain on my wedding day too. And I'm not talking your typical on and off tropical rains. I was sick physically sick over it. The guys were in the middle of the ocean on a deep sea fishing boat and the storms got pretty bad. As a mom I was worrying for my son on the boat. Later that day there were all these last minute to dos. Then rehearsal dinner at Aldea Corazon that I spent monthd to pick out bc it is like s romantic jungle restaurant on 5th ave. the dinner was set for outside. That didn't work out we went inside:( My on site wedding coordinator wasn't the biggest help but she got the job done. At rehearsal she told me I had to have wedding inside bc of forecast, she even showed me her intended ceremony did e, which consisted of a tiny room upstairs above their restaurant area. I was in silence it all became too much, I shut down and walked quietly back to oceans edge and sat to cry. Scott came over and comforted me. I was late to dinner bc the 4 Ativans prescribed for trip anxiety ( don't judge they were .5 milligram lol) I took to calm my nerves only made me feel worse. I dropped a heavy chair on my toe and my shellac Polish literally popped off 2 of two of my toes. Lol ruined pedicure. Whatever. My friends stayed back with me and they hugged me and loved me. Upon getting to rehearsal dinner I felt hollow I felt like my vision of my day was crumbling down. I had spent so much energy time and my childhood vision was shattered. I wouldn't get to walk on the sand...Of all days why now? The Mexicsns said the rain was very unusual. But that they needed it to stop the fires in fields, said it hadn't rained since Feb.
The morning of wedding I didn't want to get out of bed I was so let down. I called my reiki healer and she put things into place for me. Examples rain is renewal a cleansing a fresh start, that God was using the rain to cleanse and renew. And for Scott and I to be the sunshine on that day. Tears, she made me see things with a new light. I decided no checking the forecast no matter what. Was going to let it ride.And upon dropping off last of supplies on wedding day i asked the WC to set up outside. She was really reluctant but she agreed. My friends and son joined hands and said a prayer and ask that God would provide us with whatever we needed on our wedding day, rain shine or anything else. I told God I trusted his plan. I was tempted once to check the forecast bc literally the sky was bleak allllll day. But I didnt. I remembered my promise of faith for provision. Fast forward My AMAZING MUA Zoe Elizabeth and her friend who is a hairstylist came right on time at 3 pm. They made me look exactly how I wanted to feel. Bam. Finger waves, red lips, Spanish veil Of course something had to bubble- Scotts mom no showed and she was on baby duty. In fact she insisted on being there to help and she no showed no call nothing. But she miraculously was at the wedding but we forgive and move on. Not so easy to get ready with a 2 year old but My friends and cousin made it work. They took on her job and many others so I could get ready. After I was done I set out money for tips here's what I have. 100 DJ
40 MUA- stylist, 60 chef, 15 each server and bartender they were the trur Heros they worked so hard!! Awesome staff, 100 to photographer, 200 WC (regret that lol)
And I think that's about it. Ok so 6:40 jumped in cab, wedding venue was about 4 blocks. The clouds are so heavy the sky was grey there was a mist. My wedding was 20 minutes away and it was going to pour! .... Tbc
