Jen and Ian’s wedding day started with a calm breeze and a sunny bright morning. Appropriately, Saturday started in the pool.
While the girls got hair and makeup together, what were the boys up to? Enjoying the sun and the scenery! Alex prepared his speech for later…
Jen arrived from the Hacienda where she and Ian are staying to check on the girl’s progress. She rounded up Candace, Kaylei, and I and whisked us back t0 the gorgeous Hacienda Tamarindo with her, where she would be getting ready.
First order of business? Kick Ian out!
Once Ian was gone- off to get ready with the boys- Jen gave us the tour of the gorgeous Hacienda.
Jen’s details were stunning… but her dress was simply incredible.
It was time for Jen to get her hair together! Kaylei had the honors…
As we chatted about the day, the conversation eventually led to how Ian proposed. As they each filled in the details to tell the story, Jen let a few tears escape. Ian, do you even know how much this gorgeous woman loves and adores you?
Jen had not one but TWO beautiful hair pieces to choose from. It was tough to decide- but, finally, it was agreed that we could make use of one at the ceremony and one at the Trash the Dress session on Sunday.
I love Jen’s expressions here… XD
Time to get the dress on! With such a gorgeous backdrop, how could this day go wrong? The rest of the ladies arrived as Jen continued to prepare..
Jen, you blow our minds. You are so beautiful!!
Of course, we can’t forget Jen’s gorgeous supporting ladies!!
The excitement in the van was thick as we traveled to Sun Beach. Soon, Ms. Massuch would be Mrs. Heskitt!
More to come soon! Please leave some love for the couple below, and be sure to stay tuned for more.
