Day Four of our Mexican adventure was dedicated strictly to the beach! The weather had been amazing every single day since we had arrived, so it was time for a beach day. Our friends who were getting married had the Presidential Suite, so they were able to grab us a few cabanas right on the water next to the beach volleyball court. I actually don’t think I went swimming in the water once that day, we were having too much fun playing volleyball and laying in the cabanas.
Around 3 PM I headed inside to get ready for dinner and the Bachelorette party! We had dinner with all the friends and family of the Bride and Groom at EL MEDITERRÁNEO, which was absolutely excellent!
As we finished our meals, we all started to separate into two groups for the night for the Bachelor and Bachelorette parties! They were a blast! Lots of dancing and salsa to go round!
To be completely honest, I don’t remember the end of the night, not because I drank too much (because I promise I didn’t, Mom) but because I was so exhausted I just don’t really remember the end of the night. I’m pretty sure it had something to do with the chips and queso in the 24 hour game room though.
The Big Day!!! While the bride and the bridesmaids prepped for the walk down the aisle, the groom, his men, the family, and all us friends hung by the pool for pretty much the entire day. Vacation is tiring, btw. Some people need a vacation from their vacation, but this trip was the right about of site seeing and the right amount of lounging.
And so the festivities began; we made our way down to the venue
At promptly 5pm, the wedding party made their way down the aisle, and Renee was an absolutely stunning bride! A beach wedding, at sunset, with clear skies and clear water as the backdrop, as if out of a magazine. Stunningly perfect!
The reception began with a cocktail hour while the wedding party took pictures. The cocktail food was fantastic; stuffed mushrooms and some other mouth watering delights. A banana daiquiri also had it’s place next to my plate the entire evening.
After dinner, the dancing, and the garter and bouquet toss (which I caught, opps)…
…came the cake cutting. Even the cake was delicious.
Renee and Rolf’s wedding was perfect. The food, perfect. The setting, perfect. The weather, perfect.
