And now for the rest of the story. Saturday was the reason for the visit to Florida. The wedding.
This wedding was amazing, the bride is the daughter of very dear friends of mine. We have been friends for 30 years. Being able to see their only daughter get married was an honor. I was incredibly humbled to have received the invitation. Elizabeth Anne and I were looking forward to this event and we were not disappointed.
The bride was absolutely glowing, the groom was beaming, it was perfect. I do have to say one of my favorite parts of the evening was the father of the brides speech. It was poignant, sweet and just when the tears were gathering, funny.
The bride is the only daughter with 4 brothers, I cannot imagine the bravery of the groom. He has to be someone special to wade into that, not only did he wade, he swam and has flourished. Watching them all this weekend I know without a doubt the queen has indeed met her king. I foresee a lifetime of great joy.
The next day the festivities continued at the home of my friends. Elizabeth and I stayed twelve hours. I’m pretty sure they thought we were just going to move in. It was a difficult decision, but eventually we made our way back to the hotel.
Monday was Universal Studios, we had originally thought Disney, but Elizabeth Anne is a huge Harry Potter fan and wanted to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. So off we went, the next adventure in our Florida stay.
Stay tuned for the rest of the story.
