Ok, I admit it. Speedy Gonzales gave me my first exposure to a place called Mexico. Yes, I was six year old, who can blame me? He was the funniest little cartoon ever! However, as I grew older I fell in love with something much more important: Mexican food! Hey, I’m not talking Tijuana Flats, Chipotle, or Taco Bell (although, I love every.single.one.of.those.) I’m talking about authentic, scrumptious, Mexican food. Those tasty empanadas, tortillas made from scratch, enchiladas and mouth-watering sauce…yeah, I’m getting hungry.

You can imagine my excitement as I was having lunch with my previous bride, Nerlin, and she went into detail about her sweet friend, Margarita’s, destination wedding to…you got it, Mexico! It was a few months later that we would have the opportunity to meet Margarita and Juan in person and we couldn’t be happier to document their beautiful wedding day.

Margarita and Juan will be saying their I-do’s in Cozumel at the exclusive Nachi Cocum Beach Club this Saturday and we’ll be boarding the Carnival Inspiration headed to Cozumel this evening!

We’ll be doing many ‘firsts’ on this adventure. It’ll be Khaled’s first cruise. My first time traveling internationally, which means my first time using my passport. (Yay! The travel junkie in me is just throwing a huge party!) Our first time to Mexico, our first international destination wedding, and our first cruise together. To say we’re thrilled is an understatement.

¡Ándele! ¡Ándele! ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba! Have a fabulous weekend!
