Presenting the new Mr. and Mrs…
We certainly had a fabulous time in Cancun at my nephew’s wedding! If you ever get invited to a destination wedding I highly recommend you go. Make every effort. Sell your first born if you must.
Our only regret is we didn’t stay longer. Tiff Gyomber did a fantastic job choosing an all-inclusive resort for her wedding and our big adventure! The accommodations were incredible, rooms with Jacuzzi tubs and patios with Adirondack chairs, or if you preferred, hang up your hammock and nap or read out there on your patio. There were bright sandy beaches with lounge chairs out in the sun or tucked under cabanas, and pools, lots of pools, fresh water and salt water pools with swim up bars where you can order a coke, diet coke or something yummy like a frozen peach bellini. Gourmet restaurants dotted the resort campus, more casual eateries near the pools and beach, but even the casual restaurants offered beautiful meals, artistically presented. Here’s our starter, seared tuna with arugula greens, served before our lunch.
Choose Eggs Benedict for breakfast or French toast, or both. Grilled salmon or beef tenderloin kababs make a nice lunch. Oh, and at the less formal dining places guests can help themselves to pastry, bread, and rolls from tables flanking the cheese, fresh fruit, fresh vegetable bars.
As you would expect the scenery and landscaping were breathtaking. And exotic wildlife kept us entertained.
One thing I wouldn’t want to neglect mentioning is how pleasant and helpful the wait staff were. Truly delightful people assisted us, served us, answered questions and always answered our expressions of thanks with, “it’s a pleasure.”
Yes indeed, our only regret is that we didn’t plan for our stay to be longer. I’ll treasure the memory of Matt and Tiff’s wedding forever I think. A big part of those memories are spending time with my sister, Joan, and her fun loving family: her husband Dave, their kiddos Matt and Tiff, Melissa, Leesa, Julie and her guy Mike. Getting to meet Tiff’s mom, dad, and sister and catching up with Steve Bobb and his brother Howie was pretty special too.
A good time was had by all. How good? This good…
