Our primary reason for visiting Orlando was to go to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. We absolutely love going there, but haven't had the chance to go since we got married. There are unique and delicious food and drink tastings available in each country at the World Pavilion for just a few dollars each and we enjoy just walking around and sampling here and there. They also have food demonstrations and seminars which are fun to stop into to beat the Florida heat!
Entrance to the Festival
Spirits tasting from Ireland (they had moonshine!)
The Wedding in Naples
Oh, my goodness, the whole wedding weekend was so gorgeous and romantic and most importantly, FUN!! They had a minor, okay, major, wind issue on the actual day of the wedding which threatened to blow over their chuppah and tangle all the ladies hair, but it's those unexpected things that makes a wedding memorable, isn't it?
On the beach at sundown during the rehearsal dinner
(Ignore the shiny forehead!)
Love this photo...they are always making each other laugh!
The new Mr. and Mrs
(Doesn't Amanda look gorgeous? I loved her hair and gown!)
Beautiful centerpiece and sand art
A candy bar in whimsical beach buckets!
Me with my cousin (the groom), Mike, and a groomsman
(Did I ever tell you all that he gave me a black eye when I was 6? Funny story!)
Lovely handmade favors of little shells with a pearl
I barely left the dance floor and managed to get Jon out for a few songs too!
(Yes, that's mini creme brulee!)
My beautiful new cousin-in-law!
And last, but not least, the cake! So pretty...and yummy!
Our Florida vacation went by so quickly, but it was well worth the over 1,300 miles of driving around the state! Le sigh...until our next vacation!
