also? i looked like a complete fool walkingslashdancing up the aisle. we were asked to "get our hips into it" and i tried my hardest to get my groove on, but my attempts were ridiculous, and ben has the video footage to prove it. oh well.
carmella's husband and all of the family there were so warm and welcoming to us, we felt like we fit right in. i love that, and made a conscious thought to myself to work harder to be this way with others. after the wedding everyone danced, and ben and i were no exception. let me say, we did not have the moves that everyone else seemed to have, and we laughed at ourselves the majority of the time. but we let go, and it was fabulous.
after the reception, we took off for the beach!
here, are the pictures from the wedding.
