The secluded beach at Carricitos in Sayulita, Mexico was worth the hike. The tropical forest we walked through was lush with pink flowers, green palm leaves, and songs of the birds. When we finally got to the beach, catching the tail end of the sunset, we were all in awe of the beauty. We made it. I wanted to run into the ocean and have my movie moment in this dress, but the wedding reception with hanging wicker lanterns in the trees stopped me from being so bold.
