It was a whole weekend event from Friday to Sunday, and Meryl & Evan had booked the whole resort. Everyone was specifically there for their wedding, which made it fun that everyon had the same celebratory purpose. We arrived on Friday early in the evening, and dinner was ready for us. The caeser salad was honestly one of the best I've ever had!
Saturday was the river rafting day. I opted to not go, but my dad & brother both went. I lounged by the pool and worked on my tan; the weather was so beautiful! The ceremony was later in the afternoon, followed by some passed canapes, and a delicious dinner. Then, there were some nice speeches by family, friends, and of course, wedding dancing. (the best part of weddings!)
Another major plus in my books for their wedding: midnight nachos!!! (well, technically 11 pm nachos) I am a big fan of this midnight snack trend. We had pizza at our wedding around 10 pm, and another one of my cousins had sandwiches. I think a snack after dancing for a few hours is well needed!
My cousin looked beautiful, and she actually wore our Oma's wedding dress. She had some alterations done to it, but I loved the fact that she wore it. This is also the best part about weddings - the personal and sentimental touches that get put into them.
