This trip to Mexico was an experience of a lifetime! I always forget how much I love visiting Mexico. Everything, from the people to the amazing architecture and culture, are breathtaking. Two flights and $6 worth of Mexican candy (das a lot of candy!) later, my boyfriend and I landed in Campeche for a destination wedding for someone near and dear to my heart--Jess, my boss at J. Luxe. Jess and her Fiancé, Sam, were finally tying the knot and I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
On our first night there we landed just in time to make it for the rehearsal dinner. The festivities were at Hacienda Puerta Campeche on the terrace of a gorgeous luxury hotel where most of the wedding guests were staying. Surrounded by cascading lights from the enormous trees, we danced and drank the night away to good music, with even better friends.
The next morning we slept in late, and then went out on the town to grab some brunch and explore before it was time to start getting ready for the wedding ceremony. At the little hole-in-the-wall place where we ate, we both had Molletes, freshly squeezed orange juice, and fresh licuados.
IT WAS SO GOOD!
With a full and happy belly we shopped around for a bit where I found a hand woven sun hat for myself, and a hand painted Frida Kahlo fan for my momma at the cutest little shop. Before we headed back to our hotel we ended up sunbathing for a bit by the pool back at Hacienda Puerta Campeche.
Noooow, it was time to get ready!
At 5:15pm all the wedding guests boarded shuttles and headed 45 minutes out of the city limits to Uayamon. From the moment we arrived to the Hacienda to the moment we passed out in the shuttles back to our hotel, it was perfection. And that’s an understatement. But the best part of it all was witnessing all these lovely people coming together to show their love and support for an amazing couple. There are no words and there aren’t enough pictures to show you all how beautiful of a celebration it was. I am truly lucky that I got to witness and be apart of it all.
LOVE YOU, JESS & SAM!
