Back from Cancun, Mexico

Congratulations to Mary, our winner!  Thanks for all the comments )

We did it!  We now have both of our children married off to two absolutely wonderful people!  The latest was my son Adam's wedding to Megan in Cancun, Mexico this past weekend.  I love these destination weddings!  We had it at the Now Sapphire Resort  http://www.nowresorts.com/Sapphire/ . We just show up and they take care of you. My daughter Ashley's was in Las Vegas. 

Ever since Megan attended a beach wedding when she was a little girl she wanted to have one someday.  Who said dreams don't come true.  It was beautiful!  They have the BEST group of friends and they all showed up!  They all had so much fun together.  It was a all inclusive resort so there was a lot of partying!



We were all a little nervous when we saw the big clouds in the distance but they allowed the wedding to go on without a drop......Yea!


It was a little steamy for awhile as you can see from the photo above before the wedding.  That is my daughter Ashley on the left, my son Adam the groom in the middle and myself.  The humidity did wild things to our curly hair but it was better then what it did to some of my family's straight hair.

 I love this shot of my husband and Megan's father Stan after the wedding was over.

This is my side of the family that traveled together.  All eight of us trying to get through the Houston airport in one piece.  When we weren't laying at the beach, sailing, reading a book, getting massages or eating we were playing cards.  We are a card playing family.  Do you know that you can have dessert for breakfast, lunch and dinner?  When they lay it out in front of you in one big dessert bar you kind of go crazy.  I am now on a three day dessert withdrawal program.


Stan, Megan's dad had us all playing Bingo.  This was an easy sell for my family!


Stan had bought all these wonderful bingo prizes to give-a-way.


Megan and Adam thought of everything.  They had photos of family members that couldn't come to give to family members to hold for family photos.  They also had a photo booth with a table full of wigs, glasses, and hats.  The photo booth took a 20 seconds video and five photos each of guests.  We had a blast dressing up.  My son Adam said that he is more excited to see that video than the wedding video!


 These were the sunglasses that they gave to each guest with their name and wedding date.  Ever since my brother Bill and his wife got married on a mountain in Steamboat Springs, Colorado our family has had five in a row.  I love this new tradition.  We all have a mini vacation as well as a wedding!


In honor of the newlyweds, we will give one winner the product of their choice from our website http://www.amybradleydesigns.com

Post to this entry to be entered in the random drawing, we will draw the winner on Friday June 8th.
Thanks!
Amy
