After breakfast we checked out clothes to make sure everything packed was okay to wear and then I had most of the morning off duty. I did a little walking around the resort, reading and had a couple of beers at the pool bar. The ladies were all at the hairdressers at 10:00 AM and we were told we were not to see them again until the wedding.
The guys had lunch together, pizza and drinks and then waiting until we had to get dressed at 2:00 PM for the wedding planned for 3:00 PM.
Janet and I, Steve's Mom and Sister, the Best Man and Maid of Honor, the local Magistrate, the interpreter and wedding planner, the photographer and the videographer made up our little assembly. Plus quite a few onlookers from the beach.
The ceremony was relatively short, Spanish first then each sentence translated into English. After the question about the husband and the wife and the I do's, the ceremony immediately broke up for the signing of the appropriate documents.
Some picture taking here, then back where we started for the ring ceremony.
And finally the husband and wife announcement and the first kiss.
A big cheer from the crowd here. It was really very nice and the setting was spectacular. A bunch of photo ops and back up the beach and more photos, a glass of champagne, a first dance and more photos around the resort.
Several diners in the adjacent area came over to take pictures as well. The cake was very good. Carmen cut a good sized slice for each of us and there was still over half the cake left, so she took what remained and put it on the dessert table of the buffet going on next to us. This brought a few cheers and a round of applause.
We returned to a room and downloaded our photos for a quick look and then off to our rooms to relax.
Quite a day for everyone. Bye for now.
