The finale of the trip was dedicated to the real reason I flew over 5,000 miles, to watch two of my best friends get married.
The day started with a splash around the pool, in a bid to catch some last minute tanning before the wedding.
After a few laps and a poolside strawberry daiquiri, I dried off and rushed to the wedding rehearsal to practice our moves before the big day.
After the rehearsal we all joined forces at Rockin’ Baja Lobster. The restaurant is located in Old Town and has an energetic atmosphere with an extraordinary palette of colours used in the interior.
The tables were spread with jugs of margaritas; we nibbled on all sorts of seafood and tacos for starters.
There was live music playing, and we all celebrated the night before the wedding with excitable spirits.
The menu was full of great choices, I chose the Lobster bucket; which was filled with Baja lobster tails, grilled corn, ranchero beans and Mexican rice which was one incredible treat.
The excitement of the pre-wedding warm up started to take over!
The beaming orange walls were really something, and I thought this quote in the ladies bathroom was rather comical.
Back at the hotel we had a few drinks to toast the couple before catching an early nights sleep.
The next morning I woke giddy for the big day, all us bridesmaids headed up to the Mad’s suite that had one awesome view of the marina.
In between our hair, make-up and a spot of breakfast we had a couple of mimosas.
The flowers arrived and looked simply beautiful, a mixture of peach roses and succulents.
We managed to be ready so early there was plenty of time to lark about too. Testing out our poses before the photographers arrived.
After a few photo sessions we climbed aboard the Woody Bus and headed to church to watch my two friends tie the knot.
We shielded the stunning bride from the guests as we rode to church.
The ceremony was stunning, and tears were shed all round. The bridal party drove to various locations for photos and we partied in the Woody bus with plenty of bubbles.
The reception was held at Moniker Warehouse an industrial space that oozes coolness. I have a passion for urban interiors and this place ticked all the boxes, with it’s exposed brickwork and copper pipes on display throughout.
The venue was decorated with industrial bulb lighting and served as a really unique creative wedding spot.
Upon arrival guests selected mason jars that they could scribe their names with in chalk.
The bridal party arrived with our grand entrance dancing our way through the crowds, and taking our seats on centre stage.
Dinner was served by Burnt Truck a helping of gourmet slide burgers. Such a refreshing change to have at a wedding, the cheeseburger was served with avocado spread.
My ultimate favourite was the fried buttermilk chicken slider, spread with garlic potato and gravy. Accompanied with a heap of tater tots.
The table centrepieces were Nothing Bundt Cakes, each table had a different flavour so guests could mingle and try the different treats on offer.
The speeches commenced, followed by the couple’s first dance, games and cutting of the cake.
The heels were kicked off and we danced continuously all night long.
Congratulations to the happy couple, such a brilliant wedding my face hurt from smiling so much. The next day we had one last brunch with everyone before sadly saying goodbye and jetting home after one absolutely amazing trip.
