Costa Maya

We did a lot of relaxing in Costa Maya. We managed to get away from the touristy cruise ship area and took a cab to down town. We hung out on the beach, had a fabulous lunch right next to the ocean, and Jake rounded up a guy to serenade me while we ate!


Despite the fact that it was FREEZING half the time, we had a blast on our honeymoon! We took a cruise and our first stop was BELIZE....

It was beautiful! We went on an amazing hike through the jungle and then tubed down a river through this HUGE cave. SO FUN! Our tour guide was hilarious and nick named me and Jake Little Jaguar and Big Jaguar. We would randomly hear him shout out our "names" to make sure we were doing ok in the cave. Its pitch black in the cave so you have to wear these sweet helmets with head lamps. We also were required to wear closed toe shoes...we both showed up in sandals so we had to rent these disgusting, USED, and still wet water socks....

This is one of the ferry boats that brought us into Belize from the ship.

We wish we could have stayed there longer and will definitely be planning a trip back!


We had an amazing photographer! She was so much fun to work with and did a great job on our photos. Here are a couple of our favorites...enjoy :)

Two become ONE....

well....we finally tied the knot!!! We couldn't have asked for a better day. It was perfect. I know if I was reading this I would be gagging, but it really was....everything went so smoothly. And even the minor details (like my zipper breaking) didn't even matter! It was so great to see our family and friends all gathered together so celebrate such a great moment in our lives. Thanks to everyone for coming and making it that much more special!
