after 14 months of constant calls/emails, vendor negotiations, site visits, tears & cheers, peaks & valleys - WE ARE HITCHED!!!! the day turned out beautifully (weather was a bit chilly & REALLY windy) with very few glitches, most of which were shielded from me by my spectacular coordinator, Katherine!
Part I - Pre-Ceremony
we started with hair + makeup for most of my BMs, my mom, and myself. i had an early scare since i could see the ceremony dock from my suite windows and the chairs were set up with no standing room for the bridal party. i quickly resolved it by speaking with the banquet mgr and continued my prepping. here are some pix of us getting ready...
***NOTE - all photos are taken by family & friends. Ray's (Apertura) photos will be uploaded at a later time***

the arrival of our bouquets (3 reds + 3 oranges for the BMs w/ mine on the right and a close-up of mine)
me getting into my gown
while i was getting primped and prettied, the ceremony site was set up for guest arrivals.
our ceremony arrangements - i heard later that a lot of the flowers were blown into the water b/c of the crazy wind. =(
our ceremony + cocktail hour musicians - Spanish Beat (Francois + Rod)
