Cancun Adventure

Here is a view looking down from our place where we stayed in Cancun. The weather turned out awesome besides the last day when remnants of the hurricane made the waves larger but it never came our way thank goodness.

Our place was all-inclusive so we would have room service (which was 24 hours) come to our room to wake us up and bring food whenever we requested it, then we would have a brunch and eat food somewhere at the resort, then we would eat lunch at the buffet which had the best food, then we would have a pre-dinner there or by the pool (like the place behind Chris)...
... then have dinner at one of the 5 places (American, Italian, Mexican, Seafood, and French), then room service. Hahah. We had to dress up for momst of them. I think this was the French restaurant which was by far the best.

Here is at the Western/American restaurant. They sat us and one of the Mexican waiters went up saying that they turned on the mechanical bull... who wants to go first. My little hand went up pointing to Chris and everyone started clapping and so he went up it was hilarious. But then I had to go up too because he went hahah pay back.

Outside one of our places we took a picture. Even at night it was so humid we were dying.

Us by the pool. We would rent out towels everyday so we would go to one of the shacks

First day we were there ready to have an adventure and explore our place. It was right on the beach and had so many cool places to visit and explore within our hotel.


Our reception was outside at the Pope Gardens in Orem. It was so much fun and the weather was perfect. The sister-in-laws helped make these centerpieces and we have this one on our wall in our bedroom.
Our cake was in three sections which looked so beautiful. Our flowers were these hydrangea in centerpieces and cake.
We didn't go over if we were going to shove cake or just feed eachother cake. We definitely went for the "shove" and I got Chris good hahahahhaUs cutting the cake
Father of the bride!!! We took a picture like the movie cover of "Father of the Bride". I'm definitely a daddy's girl but my dad know that Chris was perfect for me :)
Our car got destroyed! M&Ms, Oreos, Chocolate Syrup, plastic wrap, whip cream

Our exit was with sparklers. It was an awesome ending to our reception and beginning of our honeymoon.

The luncheon roast, I mean toast

So for our luncheon we went to the top floor of the Lion House which was so much fun! We had some great food and then speeches by family.

Chris' brothers do something that's different from a toast to the bride and groom... but a ROAST where they go up and embarrass the groom hahah it was funny.

Whitney gave My Little Ponies because apparently Chris had asked for them when he was younger and his brothers have made of his manliness because of this. Aaron gave us a step-ladder helping Chris' bad back so I could walk up and give him hugs (because I'm short and it will hurt Chris' back to bend over). Cam showed a picture of Chris as "Michael Jordan" where Chris painted himself black for Halloween one year.
