Family Vacation for my Wedding!

Well, I’m back!! And no longer single πŸ™‚

I didn’t take many pictures this week, but that’s ok because everybody else had cameras and was quick to post them on Facebook… so we’re good! (I’ll have wedding pics up in a few days… gonna have to wait a few weeks for the “official” wedding photos, though.)

Where to start?? Hmmm I guess I’ll start from the beginning. Today I’ll show photos from my vacation week with the family. 22 of my grandparents, aunts, auncles, cousins, parents and sisters came to Mexico for the wedding, and it was a BLAST.

We stayed at Casa del Secreto, which is absolutely amazing.

I’m stealing photos from Aunt Amy, Cousin Aubrie and Uncle John Wayne. Enjoy!

Villas at Playa del Secreto

Casa del Secreto, aka "the Big House", where most of my family stayed

The main palapa (my room was off to the right side)

Hot tub with a moat. Why not?

Dinner our first night... fajitas and quesadillas!

fun and games at the pool

Me with my cousins and sisters at my bridal shower (more on that later!)

All the cousins that were there

*sigh*

*double sigh*

We had chocolate fondue one night!

We played Apples to Apples (awesome!) and I won!

We played many games of Fishbowl (if you've never played it, you have to!)...

... and we played it using a fish-shaped bowl. How fitting!

Many games of volleyball were played, but after seeing the injuries from the first game I stayed away from the court for the rest of the week.

I talked for awhile with my dad πŸ™‚

Each room had some pretty awesome decor. This was my personal favorite.

When it wasn't overcast, we got to enjoy the beach

Overall, an amazing family vacation

  3. This is my second attempt to say congratulations. The first attempt was deleted because it said it was a duplicate. I’m so happy for you that I would like to say it twice!

  4. That is beautiful! It looks like your family got to enjoy Cancun and vacation while being at your wedding! What a great way to go! I can’t wait to see more pics of the wedding! My brother got back from vacation in Cancun and I realized you were married! He said thanks for the tips because we went snorkling and it was awesome!

  5. I can’t believe so many people from your family flew out for your wedding! Y’all must have a close family– I think it’s cool that so many people wanted to share those prewedding days with you vs. doing their own thing.
