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!
