Viva La Mexico ~ The Freni Nuptials

Over a month ago, it was my honor to be a part of The Freni nuptials at the Dreams Villamagna Nuevo Vallarta. Mrs. F and I have been friends since we were fifteen years old and I am so lucky to have her in my life.

Before I share the beautiful photos with you, I must first tell a story of how my trip to Mexico began…..

I am a total procrastinator. I can’t help it! In college I used to stay up all night studying or writing that final term paper and not much has changed since then. Mrs. R was picking me up to head to the airport at 5:00 AM which meant I needed to be up and ready by 4:30. Well of course I was running around like a mad woman, getting all my last minute needs from travel size beauty supplies (carried on) to my Chocolate Sun spray tan. By the time I had finished packing and attempting to get ready for bed it was already 1 AM. As I flossed my teeth, I noticed the floss kept getting stuck between my two front teeth. I continued to floss between them anxious for it not to stick when, PING…off flies the cap on my front tooth into the sink and down the drain.



HOLY SH*T is all I could say or think. Seeing as I was leaving in 3.5 hours for the port, I couldn't get in to the dentist and I definitely wouldn’t have time to try and get it fixed in Mexico, so I was stuck with my Dumb and Dumber front tooth (no joke) and headed to a wedding. I quickly practiced my very best impression of America’s Next Top Model in my bathroom mirror. How much could I smile before you could see the messed up tooth? What in the world would people think? Turns out that nobody really noticed and as soon as I returned from Mexico I had my tooth fixed no problem. Phew....

We now return to the incredible nuptials of Mrs. F and Mr. F. Mrs. F was an amazingly stunning bride, who not only did ALL of the bridesmaids hair (WHAT?!) but also her own. She's THAT talented and that awesome!


Mrs. F looking ga-ga-gorgeous on her big day! The Jillian dress by Melissa Sweet was perfection on her!

Her incredible hair that she did herself. (If you need a good hair stylist...look no further)

Juanita cheerleaders reunited and it feels so good. All dressed in our JCrew Cotton Cady Claudine in Aqua. Loved them!

Mrs. F and her sister Brandi who was 7 months preggers and looking fabulous!

First dance, they were so cute!



Kim, Chris, Mr. F (the groom) & Me

Mr. F, Mr. S, Mrs. F and Mrs. S

Added bonus to the already awesome dresses...pockets!

We all tried Strawberry Tequila shots for the first time and they went down quite easy!

We LOVED the swings at the bar. So much fun!

The bride and groom were sweet enough the next day to open up their presidential suite room to us to watch the NCAA March Madness games. The view was breathtaking! Jocelyn, Mrs. F, Mrs. R and Me...

The blissfully happy couple the day after looking so happy and so much in love (and super duper tan)!


And now for the real photos!
