Justin Bieber came to the wedding!

Ok, so Justin Bieber didn't really come to my cousins wedding. But he was in town this weekend for a show and he was staying across the street from the hotel everyone was getting ready in.

Those are his tour buses and somewhere in the small group of teenagers and their poor fathers is little Justin Bieber.

My cousin Ari asked me to be her Personal Attendant and the Program passer-outer. I was very honored that she asked me to be a part of her special day. Ari and O'Brian got married in Jamaica about two years ago. Now that they finally live in Minnesota, they wanted to have a renewal of the vows with family and friends. Unfortunately O'Brians family couldn't come from Jamaica, so it was mostly Ari's family and their friends, but it was such an amazing day with so much love.

Lakewood Memorial Chapel is an old historic chapel in Lakewood Cemetery. Some thought getting married in a chapel in a cemetery is creepy, but it's a stunning venue.

The whole chapel is made up of 10 million mosaic pieces made from marble, colored stone and glass fused with gold and silver.

First dance!

Menu with Rosemary for rememberance.

The food was to. die. for. It was served buffet style and catered from Kafe 421. I had never been to Kafe 421 before, but have always heard great things. After this meal, I will definitely put it on my list of restaurants to go to.

Ari started her own wedding planning business when she lived in Jamaica and has put together some beautiful weddings. This one was no exception. She turned an old hall into a magical place. I got to see the transformation and she did an incredible job.

For breakfast we met up at the Modern Cafe that was right around the corner of the PNA Hall. greasy hashbrowns and a Coca-Cola was just what I needed after that night.

I got home and immediately passed out on the couch watching Lifetime. I couldn't get the strength to get up and cook dinner, or even drive and pick something up. Luckily, I remembered I had a jar of my Aunt Jane's homemade pickles. So good! Almost as good as Gedney!

One last thing. I painted my nails, which I don't usually do, but I went with the solid color with one nail on each hand sparkles.

I saw this all over Pinterest, so I thought I'd break out of my nail shell and go with it. Ya know what? I actually dig it!
