Secrets Destination Wedding in Riviera Maya, MX: Janell + Gerald

It was more than a year after they had been introduced to one another at work.  Gerald had been Janell’s boss since early 2008 at a gym in downtown Chicago and it was a little over a year later he was being transferred to another site.  After Gerald’s last day, several people that worked at the gym all went to a Chicago Cubs game together at Wrigley field.  It was then that Janell realized she had met someone that she never wanted to say goodbye to.  A year of friendship and a wonderful working relationship was coming to a halt.  After the game, the two talked and tears flowed from Janell’s eyes.  The feelings were mutual and they decided to stay in touch.

That summer, they joined a summer volleyball league with friends and coworkers.  It was Gerald’s best friend, Tony, that encouraged and repeatedly reminded the two they could date since they no longer worked together.  As these love stories go, a wonderful friendship turned to into an even more wonderful love.  Four years later, Janell and Gerald were married on Cinco de Mayo in gorgeous Riviera Maya, Mexico.  They said “I Do” just before the sun set at Secrets Silver Sands All-Inclusive Resort and celebration lasted until the late hours of the night.  I hope you enjoy just some of my favorites of this beautiful couple…
