We did it! We’re finally Mr. and Mrs. Enslein! The wedding was absolutely fantastic and everything went very smoothly. Most important of all, I got to marry my best friend, my darling Matthew 🙂 I obviously couldn’t take my own pictures that day, but I managed to get in one picture of my bouquet with my own camera in all the chaos of the day.
While it might seem to be a simple arrangement of flowers, it was actually quite meaningful to me. My grandmother passed away two years ago, at the seasoned age of ninety-seven. The ribbon around my flowers was the same ribbon that wrapped her wedding bouquet when she married my grandfather over fifty years ago.
After we were married we went to the Excellence Playa Mujeres Resort in Mexico. We flew into Cancun, and took a quick 40 minute ride over to the resort. I’d done quite a bit of research on the place before we got there, but no review or pictures could do the place justice. It was such a pleasure to stay there for six days, and the only thing we disliked about it was leaving.
Our room was amazing, it was two stories and the top floor was comprised entirely of an outdoor deck complete with two lounging beds and a private pool. The resort was truly all inclusive with all food, drink, and even gratuity taken care of before you ever set foot on the property. The honeymoon was the complete opposite of what the wedding weekend had been. No stress, no schedule, and just us. It was spectacular, and we can’t wait to go back.
If you’re looking for the perfect place for your honeymoon, this is it. I wrote an extensive review of the resort over on Trip Advisor here if you’d like more information on the property and what makes it outstanding.
Now, for some pictures of our vacation in heaven! The ones that I’m in were taken my by talented and handsome hubby and edited by me 🙂

Some of the delicious desserts from the Barcelona restaurant which featured an amazing buffet of all the indulgences you could ever desire!
Lounging in the hammock over the lazy river. My book and my strawberry daiquiri were only a short distance away!
A more accurate sign would read “This way to delightful food and poolside cocktails!”
The X-lounge…A bar comprised of beds on the beach. Genius!
Late afternoon on the beach.

Matthew hates cheesy things, but this time he humored me 🙂
Leaving the resort to go back home. We’re not smiling on the inside. We wanted to stay.
