Dan and Rachel's Wedding! Another Trip Back to the States.

The wedding of the century finally arrived! Last weekend my brother Dan married the best girl in the world, Rachel. This was the most beautiful wedding I've ever attended and I just don't mean aesthetically. The love that Dan and Rachel have for each other was evident everywhere you turned. I just can't believe that my baby brother is married. He is officially Dan the Man.

The week started out with our arrival into New Jersey. We made our usual Chipotle stop on the way home from the airport and spent the day relaxing and hanging out with family. The next two days were spent shopping, eating, running, sleeping, and picking up family members from the airport.

At the Cheesecake Factory after a set of grandparents flew in.
Since our nephew Matt's first birthday was on the wedding day, Beth and Scott had a birthday party for him the day before at the hotel. 70 people were at this party, including all of the out of town guests and all of his great grandparents. He was lucky that his birthday coincided with this wedding!

That night my parents hosted the rehearsal dinner. Beth had put together a slideshow of Dan and Rachel in their younger days as well as pictures of them as a couple. Great food, family, and excitement for the big day made this night so special.

After much anticipation the wedding day arrived. Some of the bridesmaids, along with my mother and grandmother, went to the hair salon to get dolled up for the big day.

A large wedding party!
The cocktail hour had an abundance of food and drinks including sushi, dumplings, lo mein, a meat carving station, a martini bar... the list goes on and on!

The ceremony was tear inducing as we watched Dan, and then Rachel, walk down the aisle to various instrumental Beatles songs. After he presented her with my Grandma Lila's wedding ring I don't think there was a dry eye in the room.

The reception followed and it was a night filled with a lot of dancing (a 45 minute hora!), food, fun, and a lot of drinks - whose grand idea was it for the tequila shots???
The happy couple!
Another happy couple!
Dancing away!

Before we knew it the reception was over and this magical night had come to an end. We'll never forget the love that was shared that night and we wish the two newlyweds a lifetime of happiness. Now go relax in Fiji for the honeymoon!

You're absolutely right, Cher, it was an amazing weekend starting with dinner out on Friday night, Matthew's first birthday party on Saturday afternoon, to the rehearsal dinner that night, and of course, Rachel and Dan's spectacular wedding!!
