{Travel}: My cousin's amazing wedding

Feb 16 (13) Feb 16 (14) 

  Saturday February 16, 2013 (Part 2)


The time has finally come to show you all some photos of my cousin Brandon's gooooorgeous wedding in Acapulco, Mexico. 

But first, here are a couple of photos of what I decided to wear on such a special day. I went with this pretty floral open-back dress I purchased from Asos.com about a year or more ago. I love how it moves with the wind!

The wedding took place at a cute church on the top of a large hill in Acapulco. I was so amazed at the beautiful design of the church. Something about the stone floors and the small lakes throughout the church area seemed so romantic and cozy to me.

But the best part of this church was definitely the breathtaking view of Acapulco. I mean seriously, could there be a more perfect place to get married? I think not!

The wedding itself was a very relaxed ceremony with funny moments as well as heartfelt moments. The "color" of the wedding was my favorite shade of blue.

The bride, oh the bride, she looked stunning! Her dress looked so beautiful on her. It was a one shoulder gown, with a mermaid shape, and a ruffle skirt. Her hair also looked stunning! She is such a perfect match to my cousin Brandon.

The wedding reception was right by the beach. You could hear the sound of the crashing waves no matter where you went.

The decorations were also very beautiful. I especially loved these big pieces of white fabric tied to the trees. They moved so beautifully with the wind.

I really enjoyed all the romantic details throughout the night. I loooved watching my cousin and his bride dancing throughout the night. I also LOVED their idea of lighting lanterns (just like the movie Tangled, by Disney!). Everything was so well thought out and so special.

We finished off the night by being silly in the photobooth. Here are my boyfriend and I dressed up as a pirate and a afro-man. My parents also joined in on the fun! hehehe.

It was by far the most beautiful wedding I've ever been to. These photos don't do this wedding justice. Every details was gorgeous, and they make such a cute couple. 

Brandon and Sophia, I wish you both the best! May you live long happy lives together ;)

  15. This has to be one of my favourite posts on your blog ever! <3 First of all, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE your dress, Marie! The pattern on it is amazing, the dress itself looks gorgeous, and you look so pretty!

    And the setting of that wedding.. It's like the stuff you see on tv and in films, but you never expect to actually experience it yourself. At least, that's the case for me, haha! The views from the location are just amazing, and I love the fact that the tables are outside and that you could hear the sea... Looks like it was an amazing wedding! And I love the lanterns, definitely make me think of Tangled, haha!
