Not In Jersey: Our Nephew’s Wedding Our Nephew’s Wedding - Not In Jersey

Our Nephew’s Wedding

Thursday, November 5, 2015

Our big trip to Israel this summer happened because our nephew got married. So not only did we get to experience the country, but we also got to experience a unique Israeli wedding. It was like a full-on disco party with lights and smoke and my camera was refusing to focus! It was also a ton of fun.

First, a few nights before the wedding, Gabbie and I got to attend the Henna Celebration for the bride. I thought she would get henna drawn on her hands, but instead it was just applied to her palm. We got to do it too!
