A Mexican "I Do"

Tulum, Mexico 10.30.10 - 11.6.10
Nights 73-79

I love weddings.
I especially love weddings when the bride and groom choose to get married in paradise.
And I most especially love weddings when said bride and groom invite me to travel to paradise with them to share in the festivities (and even bring my mom along!).
I mean, how much better can it get?!

Christina and her husband (!!!) Nick could literally win the 'World's Cutest Couple' award. 
They're funny, adventurous, animal lovers who are also the greatest hosts to Sabrina and me whenever we long for a Utah getaway. 

Lucky for their friends and family, they also make really great decisions. 
Like the decision to say their vows on a little slice of heaven called Tulum, Mexico.
We arrived on Saturday to blue skies and sunshine, and were greeted at the resort by a man with champagne.
I knew right then we were in for a treat.
Most of our week went a little like this:
eat, lay out, order drinks from the swim up bar, eat, read, party.
Add in a deep tissue massage and a swim with dolphins, and you've got yourself one heck of a week.
Though the big day was Wednesday, the celebration lasted all week long. We threw Christina a Bachelorette party, watched the sunrise, celebrated Halloween and the Day of the Dead, went snorkeling, watched a movie on the beach, and cheered on our friend in the resort's version of American Idol. 
Classic.



Christina "wrecked her dress" the day after she got married. She wore it right into the Caribbean Sea, and it made for the most beautiful pictures.


Sabrina ordered a specially made cake topper from Canada for her sister and Nick. It featured the 2 of them surrounded by all of the things they love.
Christina's dress, Nick's suit, the flowers, the rings and the setting were all (so more than) perfect.





There are some memories you make and joys you experience when you think, 
"Wow- I don't know what I would have done if I'd missed this." 
For me, Tulum is one of those memories.

Congratulations, Nick & Christina
Looking forward to many future adventures with you. XO
