The First Encounter

I was a senior in high school visiting my friend, Jessy, at the college she attended. It was a Sunday afternoon, and we were at the pool when Blake walked up with another friend. It was love at first sight. Blake was handsome, funny, and looked really good in a bathing suit. We quickly exchanged phone numbers as I headed back home. We haven’t looked back since.

 



In Preparation

Blake proposed on July 10, 2015. We started planning soon after. Wedding planning is so much fun. I think we got lucky because we booked such wonderful vendors who made the process so smooth.



The Big Day

Our best day ever was simply amazing. My father, who had stage four cancer, left the hospital the day before to be at the wedding. There was not a cloud in the sky, and right as the ceremony began, the wind died down. The reception was great, and we danced the night away. The night was finished with a sparkler send-off and a dip-kiss goodbye.

 



The Retreat

We left directly from the reception to a hotel near the airport. Our flight was the next day around noon. We headed off to seven nights in Playa Del Carmen. We stayed at the beautiful Riu Palace Riviera Maya. We had great weather the whole time we were there. There were five different restaurants to choose from, and the food was amazing. There was a show at the theatre every night. It was very relaxing and so much fun.
