Wedding Wednesday: Mexico Style!

Well since the reason we were lucky enough to head to the Mayan Riviera in the first place was for Rachel and James's wedding I figured it was the best way to start this vacation recap.
This is post is decicated to the stunning wedding that was held on the 29th of February.
It was perfection. Super hot with a nice breeze. 
Right on the beach. Bright flowers, a beautiful set up and a very happy bride and groom.

Our group of cinco!
Mom, Gran, Dad, me, Justin.
 Julianna and Katie
(my sorta cousins...step-cousins. Had to think about that. Hey look I have step-cousins! Right? I am right aren't I?)
Either way, we had tons of fun with these two cuties.

Wedding set up.
 Justin's wedding spot. Poor guy got a burn and was avoiding the sun for a couple days.
He still looked handsome though. :)
 Brian. The water was calling his name.

 The stunning Bride with her brother Andrew.
(my step-aunt and step-uncle but I don't really like the step word, it's not necessary)
 James and Rachel.
 This is my favorite shot. SO happy.
And I hear James's contagious laugh just looking at this photo.
"Auntie" Rachel and Gran.

The whole group (minus a few)!!! 
Biggest destination wedding I have ever seen or heard of!
Can you find me? Justin?

Justin caught the first train back to the lobby. We found him at the bar sipping girlie drinks. :)
 At the wedding dinner.
 Justin and James have the exact same wedding rings!
Out of all the rings out there! Crazy.
 Myself and the beautiful bride.
 Moi, Mom, Gran and Rachel.
We went for a walk on the beach after the wedding.
 Beach. Champagne. Still warm out. Stars. Perfection.
 Oh and we saw a real live racoon. I'd never seen a real one before. I was excited. :) 
We saw them a lot after that.

That's it for today. 
FULL vacay recap tomorrow. 
Get ready for photo overload. :)

Happy Wednesday!
