Wedding #3… an unforgettable weekend!
Well, this one is loooong overdue, but I didn’t know where to start! How to start and explain how much these people mean to me, how cool they are, and how lucky I am to have them in my life?
Well, aside from a wonderful mini-reunion that we had, we were there for the union of Veli and Jared – be.here.now. And that we did. The atmosphere was so full of love and gorgeousness, it could be overwhelming for a cynical person like your truly. However, it was such a genuine and accepting environment that even this jaded heart had to succumb and accept the happy, heart-string pulling event. Yes, tears may have rolled down some cheeks.
For a brief story on the couple we are toasting here: A Puerto Rican girl, a New Jersey Jewish boy meet at a friend’s party and kiss, they date, they grow closer, they fall madly in love, they start sharing their dreams and their ideas for the future, the downturn in the economy proves to them the ephemeral nature of humanity and life, they pick up and move to the south, he learns how to farm, she teaches yoga, they find a calling, they begin a new life together… it’s like a Nicholas Sparks novel with no sad twists.
You should be so lucky… so, for lack of words (though it hardly happens!) here is a selection of pictures that I think piece together the mystical weekend in Rincón, PR. They are somewhat out of order, but you can see the joy oozing out of all of them. So sweet we’ll give you a toothache.
This is the entire group. Look at how pretty we look! BU class of ’05 doing it right!

We’ve grown older, but not necessarily matured. This is one of our oldies but goodies… hair under our armpits and creepy faces. Yeah, we’re high brow.
And this is the reason everyone should have a beach side wedding…
This is the best part of friends… don’t see them for a year, still willing to be crazy with you.
Make up was still intact… this is the beginning of the evening. They had “Rum Punch,” which is code for “death to Lali.”
Yeah, not even London can stop us!
Oh, and each villa at the Horned Dorset had a private pool? They did.

Aw yeah, it just got real!
Gratuitous beach bunny shots!

And we partied like rock stars…
I absolutely adore this shot!
