After our amazing trip to Orlando to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, we traveled to New Smyrna Beach, FL to watch my cousin get married. It was so great to see my family and meet members of my dad’s family I have never met before. There is something so wonderfully peaceful about being at the beach. I don’t know what it is, but it was so amazing to go and relax for a few days.
Her ceremony was gorgeous and intimate. Being one of the 50 or so people at her ceremony, it was so beautiful to see her commit herself to Bryan. She was crying pretty much the entire ceremony. One of the best things that I saw was that my uncle married them. It was so special to see a family member who knew them both very well marry them. This was one of the reasons we wanted my brother-in-law to marry us. It was important for both of us to have someone who knew us both so well to marry us, like Nicole did with our uncle.
The reception was fun, but there weren’t enough tables for everyone that showed up. They served tacos, which were quite good, and they had cupcakes in liu of a cake.
