Tim and I will be arriving the Sunday befoe the wedding to finalize all of the wedding plans. We will be sure to finish everything before anyone arrives at the resort so we can spend any free time with our family and friends who have made the trip!
Wednesday: We may be taking a hotel shuttle to downtown Playa del Carmen for a little shoppin and boppin. Shuttle time TBA.
Thursday: We will be hanging poolside most of the day. We have a group dinner planned for everyone, which is optional for whomever would like to come. Dinner will be held at the Coctal Restaurant at 6 PM. Starter: Grilled Watermelon and Citrus Fruits with Caribean seafood. Salad: Caesar salad. Main Course: Braised Beef with bordelaise sauce with veggies and fresh herbs OR Sole with glazed veggies and white wine. Dessert: "The Dorado" which is vanilla icecream, chocolate sauce and peppermint foam (a house specialty).
Friday: We have reseved a Catamaran out of Cancun with transportation to the Marina from the hotel and back as a "Thank You" for attending our special day. The vans will leave the hotel at 2:30 in the afternoon so we suggest having lunch before we leave. Chips and salsa/Guac and fruit trays will be on board as well as cocktails! We will also stop at one of the popular reefs for snorkeling. All equipment will be on board. We also plan to see the beautiful sunset on the way back from our Catamaran tour. We should be back to the hotel by 8:30 that evening so restaurants will still be open if you are hungry; not to mention there is room service offered 24/7.
Saturday: THE BIG DAY! The wedding ceremony will be held at 3 PM - we would really like it if everyone can be there in good form. :) The ceremony will be followed by pictures and a whole evening of fun on the beach! Like the whole night is on the beach...in the sand....dress appropriately.

Tim and I had an interesting beginning. He was living in the city and I had just moved back to the city and became really good friends with his roommate. Tim had also been friends with my little brother for years but I never knew him. Our true story is actually quite humorous and the gist of it is that we met, found ourselves interested in each other, instantly realized we liked all the same things and quickly became attached at the hip. We dated for a short time and fell in love quickly. We knew we were perfect for each other and moved to the suburbs, bought a house and now have 2 dogs, 1 cat and 2 fish tanks. Our love for each other grows every day and we are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together
