Wedding in Puerto Morelos, MexicoWhew, we've been on the road for a while now and it's time to finally tell you about the beautiful wedding we attended in Puerto Morelos, Mexico in April of this year. While I have been lucky enough to have traveled Mexico quiet a bit before I have never been to its eastern coast. We flew into Cancun and took a shuttle to our resort south of Cancun, in Puerto Morelos. It's a tiny little town close to a big stretch of hotels along the coast.
The scenery is very different from the west coast and the word 'jungle' comes to mind. There is a lot of undeveloped land still available right at the ocean and the weather can only be described as too humid and too hot by someone who is spoiled by Southern California weather all year round. Most people from cold places would love the weather I'm sure. ;)
The Marina El Cid Hotel has access to a beautiful beach:
Aaah, enjoying umbrella drinks right at the water - freedom! ;) Both of us were so honored to be in the wedding. J. the bride chose a beautiful dress for us bridesmaids.
The wedding colors were really pretty - dark purple/gold. The flowers turned out gorgeous also:
I found my hair inspiration on Pinterest and it worked out great. My hair stylist highly recommended that I provide the Mexican stylist with a picture and mentioned to them that I want 'SIMPLE' in order to prevent a quinceanera-like hair nightmare. The girl did a great job and I'm glad I brought a picture.
The ceremony took place on the jetty - a very intimate and special moment with our dear friends:
One of my highlights was definitely the lit-up dance floor right on the beach. 'Disco Bolten' right in her element. I remember a full sprint through the beach sand in the dark once my eyes discovered this beauty of a dance floor. (Just can't resist the disco fever) ;)
Now, if this doesn't get you in a vacation mood I don't know what would. We took a deep-sea fishing trip the next day but that adventure deserves its own post.
