Destination Wedding/Take 3



Hello, dear friends.  Happy Friday!  Did you have a good week?  I unpacked and got a lot of things done around the house.  It's bitterly cold this morning and it looks like snow this weekend.  If I wasn't listening to such a good book, I would probably skip my walk. But instead, I'm going to bundle up so I can listen to what happens next. 

This is the third installment of the wedding of our #1 and Adorable Jonathon.  Sorry, it took so long, but I had to wait for the professional pictures to be done.  If you are interested in seeing the first two posts, you can find them here and here.  They were married legally in the States in NYC a few weeks prior.  You can read all about it here.


To refresh your memory, the wedding was held at the St. Regis Punta Mita Resort. 





When our #1 was a little girl, she wanted to be a bride for Halloween.  She told me at that time that she wished she was a real bride. 


On October 26, 2019, my little girl's wishes came true.





We all spent a relaxing day together, getting our hair and makeup done.




While the Mister and the Adorables gave words of encouragement to the groom as he prepared for the celebration.



The bride and groom decided that they would do a First Look, which means that the professional pictures were taken before the ceremony.

Btw... I think that is a great idea.  The Mister and I missed the whole cocktail reception at our wedding because we had our pics taken.  It's been thirty years, and I'm still bitter...












I'm holding on to Adorable Jonathon's arm to make sure he doesn't take off.



Double Adorableness.




Our new big, happy family.

Here comes the Bride!



You can't really tell, but AJ's eyes got a little misty as his Bride walked down the aisle.


My girl's dress was designed by Nardos from Nardos Design in Dallas.  She was a joy to work with.






I love this pic. 
The Mister is whispering to her... don't forget that you promised that Mom and I could move in with you two when we get really, really old.










I'm thinking... one down, one to go.
Btw... I'm taking applications for #2.




















The next stop is the cocktail hour and reception.  
Stay tuned.

Have a great weekend!

Until next time...

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  8. Absolutely beautiful all the way around. Everyone's dresses were perfect for them. I am having those nasty comment troubles from around the same time last year. I tried to comment on the previous post, but I think it went into the cloud:) So, if your comments are down that is why.
    Anyway, I am happy that the wedding turned out so pretty. I am sure #2 will find her match.
