The main reason for my trip this time, was that my Sister-in-law was getting married... MG's sister, that's it. He couldn't come for several work issues and we all were sad because of that.
I flew on Friday to Acapulco, a beach in the south-west of Mexico, where I met all MG's family... his parents and aunts, uncles and cousins.
We hung out at the hotel where the extended family was staying and went to mid-afternoon lunch to a very famous place of fresh fish and seafood. All of them are really nice to me and I like that I feel part of the family... not a stranger.
My Sister-in-law was not there because she was with the future husband in a photo sesion at the beach, where they wanted to go into the sea and lay on the sand, so she used her Mom's wedding dress for the sesion!!!! (my Mom's dress would have never fit me!!)
At night, we (my Parents in Law and me) went to join them at the house where the wedding was held on Saturday... So I spent the night there with them and shared a room with my Sister in law. I felt as we were having a sleep over and sharing secrets and stories.
A stylist did her hair and make up, and he even did my hair.
I helped her to get dressed and put her veil on... she was glowing and looked gorgeous... we did more pictures and then the guests started to arrived.
They had a ceremony and a blessing at the beach, near the sea, during the sunset. It was beautiful and in perfect timing... Then the civil wedding and off to dinner (8 pm) and the dance (9 pm)... the dancing was full and alive until 2.30am.
Overall it was a really nice and beautiful experience for me... I enjoyed it a lot...
The only down was that I had a big knot in my throat and had to fight back the tears that threaten to come out, every time I thought about MG alone at our house, missing all this special moments and not seeing (looking at?) his sister in her wedding day.
The pictures are of the house where the wedding was held and the set up for the party... I'll come back with some wedding pictures other day.
See you soon!
